Tech Review: Sudio FEM – True Wireless Earphones

With an ever-increasing interest in true wireless earbuds, many companies have sprung up in attempts to fill this void at all sorts of price points. The Sudio FEM stands out with their first ever implementation of what Sudio calls ‘Environmental Noise Cancellation’. This feature is similar to Active Noise Cancellation but the only difference is that it cannot be turned on/off. The Sudio FEM is quite fittingly named, as ‘fem’ in Swedish actually means five, and this is the 5th wireless earbuds that Sudio currently has available on their store.   True to their familiar Swedish product design, the Sudio FEM is clean and minimalistic. The plastic case has a smooth rubbery texture that provides a nice feel and grip to it. Similar to the Sudio TOLV, it also features a brown string, so that you can secure it to a bag for easy portability. This is definitely a more elegant solution compared to the crassness of a carabiner clip. You might be wondering, “If I hang it on my bag like this, wouldn’t the …

Tech Review: LG Soundbar Flex SJ7

Soundbars serve both an aesthetic purpose and deliver great sound. Living in Singapore, rooms are small and space is tight, that is why the LG Soundbar Flex SJ7 brings a new meaning to flexibility. The LG Soundbar Flex SJ7 is a 3 piece sound system which allows you to arrange the soundbar’s placement to your specific needs. It has 3 different ways it can be used: The standard Soundbar setup The stereo setup Or a surround sound system (Oopsies not possible to take a photo for this one) In fact, one of the speakers is portable and can be connected through Bluetooth; allowing you to play music from any part of your home. The soundbar has quite a heft to it so it might be slightly inconvenient to bring outdoors. It also features Adaptive Sound Control (ASC) which analyses content in real-time and automatically adjusts the sound to suit the correct content. However, this feature has to be activated using the remote by pressing the Sound Effects button. The primary unit is capable of connecting …

Tech Review: Beats X

The Beats X is one of the newest (as of posting) wireless earbuds from the Beats lineup. Since Apple has taken over Beats, the company has only been going up. It took a pretty long for me to get my hands on this but I finally managed to. (YAY me!) I got the Beats X in blue as it’s a pretty unique colour. This is my 2nd Beats product and really, the unboxing experience was awesome!!! Straight away you are greeted by the earpiece itself and underneath it was the manuals, the extra eartips of various size, as well as earhooks of various sizes if you require a more secure fit. Behind all the eartips and earhooks was the case and a charging cable. Unlike the previous wireless products made by Beats, this charger has a lightning adapter, so all those Apple users should be glad. My only slight complain is that the case is a dust magnet and it gets dirty super easily. Now moving on to the earpiece… Syncing the Beats X to …
