Buddyphones from OnanOff are Kid-Friendly in So Many Ways

buddyphonesNow that I have finished reviewing that awesome Sound Cover from OnanOff, I am happy to review another product from the company. This is the Buddyphones, and it is clearly made for those younger ears.

Part of its charm is not its simple color scheme, which I will detail when I get to the price. This is also made to last, as you can twist it a lot. Granted, I didn’t try and destroy it, but I gave it some kids treatment. It is made of specially calibrated polyproplene so it can be twisted in any direction, and it folds up very easily for storage

In addition to the durability, the Buddyphones also have volume-limiting circuitry that is made to cap off the sound at 85 decibels, which is the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation for kids.

What also makes this for kids is that they can share. There is an extra port where you plug it into the audio jack, and you can hook it up with three other audio cables. Did I mention that they come with stickers? Yeah, they have that. Oh, they also have that airplane adapter thing.

So, if you want them, head on over to the OnanOff site and pay $24.99 in Blue, Green, Pink, and Yellow.

Sound Cover Tablet Speaker from Onanoff

sound-coverIt’s been a while since I have reviewed a good Onanoff product, and since they make a lot of good ones, that is a shame. I will quickly summarize this product saying that it is a speaker made for tablets, and it is stated that it can boost the iPad volume by 400 percent.

I have to admit that this is one product that I thought would be something else, but when I reviewed it, it did more than I thought. You see, what I thought this was a speaker that can mount itself on the back of an iPad. The packaging says that it is from the iPad Air, so I thought this Sound Cover speaker was designed for the iPad Air, but honestly, I think it would work for any tablet.

In fact, I tried it out with my Android smartphone, and it worked with the Bluetooth for it. Yes, this speaker works wirelessly, and it works with an included wire too. In fact, out of curiosity, I connected this with my desktop, and I had a great speaker.

The front of it vibrates intensely, so it would be a mistake to lean your tablet against it. You will notice how the speaker has a backing that can lean out, and the design is pretty impressive.

There are some other great features, such as a built-in microphone. It also comes with a travel bag, the 3.5 mm stereo cable, and a USB charging cable. The battery is a 3300mAh Lithium Polymer type, with 15 hours of playtime when fully charged.

In short, it is quite something, and should work with whatever you got. It used to be $199.99, but is now available on the Onanoff site for $129.99 in gold, silver, and black.

OnanOff Dock Minimal for Tablets

SONY DSCNow that CES 2014 is over and done with, I can get back to doing some of my favorite things: gadget reviews. Especially since a lot of gadgets that I will review were obtained at CES.

One of them is the Dock Minimal Tablets, from OnanOff. I briefly stopped by their booth at CES, and they really have a lot of cool stuff. You can see how the Dock Minimal works in the image, but this is really interesting as it is capable of many angles that I didn’t show. For example, you can do landscape view, or slap it on the side.

What makes this different is it can accommodate just about any tablet, and I am assuming that will do the Samsung 12.2 inch tablet. Yeah, that was unveiled at CES, and I may or may not do a hands-on review of that. For all tablets, there are some rack holders that you stick in the side to adjust for the thickness of your tablet.

As an added bonus, the rod that holds up the tablet at an angle can also be used as a stylus. Yep, it is that good. You should be able to get it on the OnanOff site for about $39.95.
