News - STREAMZ Android powered wireless headphones on Kickstarter


I get a lot of Kickstarter pitches in the MissingRemote inbox, but it's not that often that I see one that looks interesting. STREAMZ is one of those. Combining an Android powered Wi-Fi streamer in the headset alongside Bluetooth and wired connectivity it can provide a complete music solution. Music can be stored locally (it supports up to 256GB SDXC), streamed from Google Drive, or from Pandora or Spotify. Although, as a Google Play Music subscriber it would be even more interesting if it supported that service. Besides the general risk associated with Kickstarter campaigns, there will be some associated with the platform's development. If the company makes it, hopefully they will be committed to updates both from a security and feature perspective.

News - Rockjaw Audio Kickstarting Sentio; first open & closed headphones

I've been on the prowl for a good set of overear headphones for a few months, and wouldn't you know it... Right as I was about to hit "buy" on a pair, I ran across the Rockjaw Audio Sentio Kickstarter page. There are a couple things that make this pair quite unique; most notably that they are the first to be able to function as both an open and a closed headphone, but it's also a dual driver (per ear) design with an optional aptX supporting Bluetooth module availble. Meaning that it ticks all the right boxes, and then some.

I haven't decide quite yet if I'm willing to wait until September, but the £95 (headphones) + £25(BT module) backer price is well inside my budget. Very tempted.

News - The Wirecutter Answers "The Best Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones" Question

I love my active noise cancelling headphones because they make everything from air travel to the kid's playdates tolerable. They are on-ear, and in extended blocking er... listening sessions my ears do tend to get a bit sore. I'd be curious if in-ear would be more comfortable when in it for the long haul.
