CES is a crazy, hectic week of running around from press conference to manufacturer’s booths, meetings and deadlines. When Audio-Technica offered demos of their new ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint noise-cancelling headphones along with a 15-minute professional massage, it was an irresistible treat, and the perfect way to wrap up the show.

I didn't know who or what the ULE Alliance was when I agreed to meet with them at CES 2018. For all I knew, they might have been an organization dedicated to promoting electronic ukuleles.

One of the great things about the Eureka Park section of CES is that you can stumble across the cool new ideas that have yet to make it to market. Such is the case with LifeDoor, designed by a former firefighter to protect his family.

It’s all well and good to have smart speakers throughout the home, but it makes a lot more sense to have one right next to your bed. The iHome iGV1 is a bedside clock with Google Assistant, ready to wake you up with all the information you need to start your day.

Relative newcomer to the headphone industry (but old-timer in the mic business), Blue is shaking things up with a different way of dealing with noise cancelling sounds. While most headphones use a single driver, Blue’s wireless, over-ear Satellite uses a separate driver specifically for the sounds used to cancel out noise. Different, right?

How much does it suck to spend half your workout trying to untangle your headphone cables before you can start to listen to your music? A lot, right? Wraps Wristband headphones and cables never tangle because you carry them wrapped around your wrist instead of stuffed in your bag or briefcase.
