It has been another stellar year for Apple fans with the launch of the iPhone 6 & 6Plus, and the new iPad models amongst other. But on the back of Apple products comes a myriad of new accessories, including a range of headphones, speakers, both wired and unwired, cases, apps, and much much more. Inside this post is some of our favourites from 2014, including some we look forward to.
I’ve been impressed with Nordic audio companies for a while now when it comes to their product development, combining great product design with premium quality audio. Nocs is one of these companies, and their Nocs NS500 in-ear headphones does not disappoint.
The My Doodles Kids Dock feels like a nice and kids friendly product that not only will provide a safer storage solution for kids to leave their tablets on, but also provide them with a better audio experience while playing music or watching their favourite shows on their tablets.
In their price bracket, the Gadgeo GX-20 are a good option to consider should you be limited to max £20 budget. They provide good quality build and comfort, but overall the sound could be a bit more dynamic and balanced.
For many HiFi fans, and companies, bluetooth used to be a curse word, but how times have changed. Bluetooth streaming quality has improved and increasingly mobile customers have both high demands for audio quality and ease of use, and that is where renowned audio manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins are hoping the B&W T7 will become the go to solution.
At just under £165 you will struggle to find better looking and performing wireless headphones than the House of Marley Liberate XL. Good and powerful sound combined with quality build and comfort is a winning recipe. See full review inside.

Apple has announced a new media event for 16th October with the tag line “It has been way to long”, likely to refer to update versions of the iPad, but could there be some iPod news in there as well?
The Bose QuietComfort 15 noise-cancelling headphones have been a favourite of mine and many others, so with Bose launching its replacement in the QuietComfort QC 25 it comes with high expectations for both comfort, noise-cancellation, and sound experience.
Although there has been plenty of headaches for accessories providers following Apple switching to the lightning connector, it has opened up some new opportunities, which it looks like Philips have taken advantage of with their new Fidelio M2L headphones that connect to your iOS devices through the Lightning connector, bringing high-quality 24-bit DAC (digital to analogue conversion) sound to the headphones.
The Danish audio manufacturer Libratone, known for their woolly wireless AirPlay speakers, have announced the October arrival of their latest product, the Libratone Diva; a soundbar that we are hoping will live up to its name when it comes to sound.
After months of speculations and rumours, it’s official. Apple today announced and showcased to the world the new iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch screen and its big brother, the iPhone 6 Plus with a 5.5-inch screen. Gone are the days when Apple believed phablets would never become popular.
This week it was made official that Apple is holding one of their annual events on the 9th September, a time that we who follow Apple have grown accustomed to associating with the launch of the next iPhone, or in the case of latter years, iPhones. As usual the messaging on the invites themselves are cryptic, but what can we expect? Besides the new iPhone(s)…
