We did run into one very strange situation, though. With the headphone cable plugged in and the Beats Acoustic Engine engaged during a flight, we went to rest our head on against the fuselage of the plane to discover that pressing the right ear cup close to our ear caused a fast and rather loud pulsing noise. This does not happen when the Studio are in noise-cancelling-only mode, therefore we feel it’s safe to say it has something to do with the acoustic engine. Either way, it’s totally undesirable and something travelers are bound to run into unless they avoid any kind of pressure on the right ear cup. Pressing in the left ear cup did not cause the same effect. … [Read more...] about Beats by Dre Studio review

Where Dauntless really differentiates itself over the competition is the lack of fluff between the good stuff. Rather than get bogged down prep, so long as you refill your potions, you can pick a mission and get stuck in. You won’t have to navigate the whole of the Amazon Rainforest to find your target, either.

Sure, a lot can change in people’s viewing habits in just a few years but have they changed enough to support a smartphone-only video platform that costs almost as much as Hulu, Disney+, and CBS All Access (which can all be watched on the web and via TVs and mobile devices) but offers fewer hours of content in its library? That’s a tough sell, no matter who is in the shows’ casts or creative teams. … [Read more...] about Quibi: Is it the next big thing or a billion-dollar boondoggle?
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt While there are plenty of RPGs available on Sony’s PlayStation 4, CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best. In the epic conclusion to the adventure trilogy, players once again don the role of Geralt of Rivia, waging battle against the advancing Wild Hunt army in the Northern Kingdoms. Although the title remains similar in style to previous games in the series, CD Projekt Red included new combat mechanics and significantly bolstered the customization, all of which help it improve upon the gameplay and imbue its open-world with a greater sense of depth. … [Read more...] about The best PS4 games for April 2020
