Samsung Electronics executive vp Joe Stinziano introduces new QLED UHDTVs at 2017 CES.
New advanced UHDTVs and UHD Blu-ray players were the most notable product announcements for A/V enthusiasts at Samsung's 2017 CES press conference today.
The brand's new QLED TVs are said to push the state of the art with a new metallic-core quantum dot formulation in the backlight, one that ultimately provides the ability to deliver brighter highlights and an even wider color gamut than Samsung's top-line 2016 models.
Braven is joining the fitness craze with four new performance-oriented wireless earphones. The in-ear models are part of the Flyte Sport series, complementing Braven's ActiveSeries. The new models are the Flyte Sport, Flyte Sport Reflect, Flyte Sport Power, and Flyte Sport Glo.
As you might know, Blue Microphones makes microphones. Really good microphones, actually. The company also makes some darn nice headphones. The newest members of the family are Ella and Sadie, along with Satellite.
The pre-CES buzz surrounding Sony was that the company would introduce OLED. Turned out the buzz was correct: The main product the company unveiled at its CES 2017 press conference was its new XBR-A1E Series BRAVIA OLED TVs.
Noel Lee, the always-energetic CEO of Monster, kicked off the Monster 2017 press conference with a bevy of sport and fitness celebrities, clearly showing where the company is focused moving into the new year.

You might not have heard of VOXX. But I bet you're familiar with Acoustic Research, Klipsch, AudioVox, Advent, Jensen, Terk and RCA - all members of the VOXX family. The VOXX press conference today highlighted everything from Bluetooth speakers to blood-oxygen sensing earbuds and more.
With the ever-loving number of products that are introduced at CES each year, it never takes long before you come across a gadget that causes your brain to stop functioning for a second under the heavy processing load of trying to figure out just why in the hell something like that would ever have reason to exist.

It turns out that Jooki wasn’t quite what I thought it was.
