Bose SoundLink® - My Review

The Bose SoundLink® is a portable Bluetooth speaker for your iDevice, Android device, Windows 7 device, and even your laptop/desktop computer, basically anything with bluetooth will work with it. (Apart from Bluetooth headsets). In this article, I am going to have my say on this beast of a speaker!

Having owned this device, I can say that I am more than pleased with the Bose SoundLink®. The quality of the auido is outstanding, the bass is superb and doesn't distort at full volume.

The Bose SoundLink® takes only 3-5 hours to complete a full charge, and can last up to 6 to 8 hours until the battery dies.

If you do not have a Bluetooth-enabled device, you can connect any other device to the Bose SoundLink® with the AUX cable that comes provided in the box, Which is very handy!

The built-in magnetic cover which protects the grill of the speaker quickly and conveniently folds out into a stand as the Bose SoundLink® Will not support itself with out it. (Which is a slight downfall).

On the top of the Bose SoundLink®, you find the Following:


  • Power on/off 
  • AUX 
  • Bluetooth 
  • Mute 
  • Volume Down
  • Volume Up


This speaker is available in 2 variaties. You can purchase the Bose SoundLink® in a Matt Finish with a Dark Grey Nylon Cover, which retails for £259/$299. You also have the choice of purchasing the slightly more up-market Bose SoundLink® LX, which comes in a Chrome finish with a Genuine Dark Brown Leather Cover, which retails for £299/$350.

 There are some downfall's with the spaker though. From my experience, it doesn't always seem to want to connect to my Apple iPhone 4. so I turned Bluetooth off and on again on my phone, clicked "Bose SoundLink" from the device list and it successfully connected to the speaker. I then went to play some music and the song was playing from my phone speaker and not the Bose SoundLink®!! So, I handed the Bose SoundLink® back to my local electronic's dealer and I am recieving a new one later this week. The second downfall is to do with the magnetic cover/stand, since the Bose SoundLink® doesn't support itself with out a stand, I need to lay my speaker down on it's back when not in use, this is not convenient as it might collect dust and other particals on the back of the speaker over a period of time.


So, overall I give the Bose SoundLink® Portable Bluetooth Speaker a Whopping 9 out of 10!

SkullCandy Icon 2 Review

Hello, today I’m going to be giving you a review of the Icon 2 headphones by SkullCandy, this gadget retails at $29.95 on



These bad boys come in a array of color and designs. I’ve been provided with the Black Icon 2’s that have a nice black matte finish on the outside of the headphones. These headphones have style even down to the cord, with a bradded nylon cord; aesthetics wise these headphones are #1.



For there price these headphones give out superb sound quality. They also feel very comfortable on your head. One customizing feature that’s a plus to most users are the interchangeable plates on earphone; Skull Candy provides you with two extra plates that match with the design.  



Overall these headphones are great for there price, but there’s one thing that may frustrate you when using them. Is that they fall of you head very easily when you in motion. I found myself picking them up almost everyday during my morning and afternoon commute. 


Even with it’s flaw there great headphones for there very reasonable price. These headphones in my book are 8/10.
