Cool Tech Reviews

FiiO M7 Side Controls
FiiO M7 Side Controls

Over time, here at SoundReview we’ve explored a whole range of different cool tech products. It’s about time to surface them all so you can find the most interesting gizmos that have been reviewed. Personally, if it were me I would be particularly drawn to the Audio Technica ATH-ANC700BT. It looks awesome and would be great for travelling in comfort. At home coupled with the Modmic 5.0, that’s also sweet computer setup as well for Discord or Skype voice calls.

The Fiio M7 is a super simple high quality music player for listening to music on the go. No messing about, it does the job its supposed to but for more professional applications such as music for live performances, I would cash out more.

That’s my two cents, check out the whole list of cool tech reviews and see what takes your interest. Alternatively if you like the look of the No Bounds Speaker from House of Marley, then had over to the Best Portable Speakers Reviews.

This Android TV box takes the crowning glory of the most powerful unit on the market but it does seem to have some stability issues. So long as you try to stick to the apps available within Beelink's own app-store, you should be ok. If you're used to Android TV boxes and know a thing or two about the Android OS then you'll be in the best position to get the most out of this high-spec box.

Top-spec TV box that can theoretically handle almost anything you throw at it
Lots of memory, quick processor, handles all media, 4k video output, tons of connections..the list goes on!
Clean, bloat-free and easy-to-use interface
Pretty cheap for what it is
QODI (Beelink's version of Kodi) worked well

In the M7, FiiO has created a digital music player which bridges a gap between audiophiles and consumer listeners.
