Hesh 2 from Skullcandy are over-ear style headphones and, because no one likes getting tangled up in cables, Skullcandy have unleashed a wireless set, which I happen to have here to review.

The Skullcandy Hesh 2 Bluetooth headphones are what I would describe as being full-sized cans.

You have the option of running these fully wireless or wired – but are these mid-range priced headphones anything to get excited about?

The Fugoo speaker has the ability to dress for any occasion thanks to a range of natty looking jackets. I have been sent the Fugoo Tough along with a Style jacket.

The Fugoo (named after Fugu, the rather risky Japanese puffer fish delicacy) is waterproof, mud-proof, drop-proof and shock-proof in its naked ‘Core-X’ format. So a tough Bluetooth speaker, that’s been done before right? Well, it’s not only tough but also adaptable thanks to its three jacket options – Style, Sport and Tough.

The new Griffin Survivor power bank has been designed to cope with the most challenging environments and, as anyone that has endured a weekend festival in the UK can attest, none come more challenging.

I have certainly done my time in tents at festivals – starting off at Monsters of Rock in the 80s and early 90s, numerous Glastonburys, all the UK Sonispheres, a couple of OzzFests, and a Lattitude.

Festivals these days tend to offer recharging lockers which is all well and good if you can do without your device whilst it’s incarcerated. But what happens if you get split up from your party? You know full well that rally point agreed upon whilst you were all still fresh (and sober) will have slipped everyone’s minds by then.

The smart kids will have packed a power bank. The really smart ones will have brought one that can put up with the rigors of rain, beer, muddy fields and impaired coordination.

Manfrotto Lumie is a range of new compact, inexpensive, high performance photography lights. They sit below the high-end Manfrotto Spectra range of LED light panels but, as with most Manfrotto kit, would happily suit the prosumer or enthusiast level of photog.

My first experience with a light panel came by way of a suggestion from a professional photographer friend when I asked about how to get better results from shooting at shows, especially A/V expos. He suggested an extremely budget panel that did the trick but is also quite large and cumbersome.

There are three sizes of the Lumie light available: the smallest is the Lumie Play, which I have here, that features three LEDs. The medium-sized Lumie Art has six, and the largest, the Lumie Muse, has eight. As you’d expect, the bigger the unit the more light power it’s capable of outputting.

Manfrotto have recently rebranded this line which is now called Lumimuse.

The Tascam Trackpack 2×2 landed on my desk last week and, instead of diving straight in to review it, I thought that it deserved an unboxing video first.

Yeah, I know it’s been a while since I shoved my face on video and I also know that some would say that’s no bad thing. But, when the Tascam Trackpack arrived, there was so much in the box that I thought I would share unpacking everything with you.

Wraps earphones, if you remember my article announcing their release at the end of last year, you will recall that these earbuds wrap around your wrist.

Wraps are an intriguing offering. You may already be aware that I am more a fan of over-ear type headphones than shoving something in my lug-holes. The thing is, when the weather gets warmer (it will happen, promise) and there is no longer a need for jackets, where do you put your cans?

For me, heading to a watch a gig, the last thing I want to be doing is carrying a bag for the sake of my headphones. This is where I fall back on earphones.

Earphones can be slipped in to jeans or other item of pocketed clothing.

That’s all well and good but T-shirts generally don’t have pockets and some jeans are decidedly skinny. What happens if you’re rocking up poolside in your Speedos or bikini?

That’s not a misprint – We could well see the Note 6 in three month’s time.

Yup. Word on the street is that Samsung is gearing up to release the Note 6 in July.

It seems that Samsung wants to keep its Note fans guessing as there hasn’t really been a fix release period for the Note range when you think about it. The Note 5 appeared in mid-August 2015, the Note 4 before it in September 2014, the Note 3 exactly a year earlier.
