Trusted Reviews Finalist

Sony NWZ-A866 and Cowon X7 make final cut at Trusted Reviews Awards!

 

The prestigious Trusted Reviews Awards winners have been announced and at Advanced MP3 Players we are delighted to report that two products reached the final stages of selection. In the Portable Media Player of the Year Award both the Cowon X7 and Sony NWZ A866 were runners up losing to the Apple iPod 4th generation. Public voting took place to establish a shortlist of finalists for every award. It was then down to the experts at Trusted Reviews to determine the winners of each category. The X7 and NWZ-A866 are not unfamiliar at Trusted Reviews having both received glowing reports previous to the awards.

 
The X7 and NWZ-A866 didn’t go down without a fight and certainly provided the grounds for a seriously ‘tough competition’. Read why below.

 

Cowon X7

 

X7

 

Cowon are a brand synonymous with quality sound where this level of high fidelity playback is a rarity amongst players at a similar price point. It would be an understatement to say Cowon take sound seriously. What makes them unique however is Cowon appreciate that sound is different for every listener. What might sound brilliant to one person may sound horrendous to another. That’s why Cowon have included 35 pre-set music profiles to suit a vast amount of musical tastes.

 
The player is absolutely brimming with features such as having picture playback, video, a document reader and a flash player to name a few. Not only this but Cowon have made sure that these features don’t get in the way of what the Cowon is primarily for – to play music. They’ve loaded the device with a powerful battery that will give you 103 hours of music and 10 hours of video.

 

The Cowon X7 offers great value, at £199 for a generous 160GB of storage, and it has class leading file support to boot. A large screen, good battery life and superb sound quality also help to make this a real contender.Trusted Reviews

 

Sony NWZ-A866

 

 

Sony

 

The Sony NWZ-A866/A-867 models take a distinct leap in quality from former models. This player incorporates sophisticated features such as a responsive touch screen and Bluetooth connectivity. Excellence in sound has long been a top priority of Sony and the NWA-A866 is no exception to this. Using five unique Clear Audio Technologies and the S-Master MX digital amplifier to reduce noise and distortion, Sony exceeds the expectations of experts and audiophiles alike.

 

Sony has incorporated highly sophisticated specifications in the NWZ-A866 but has sensibly maintained a basic menu grid making navigation effortless. The touch screen is pleasingly efficient and responsive with a solid home button located at the bottom.
Though some of the features on the player are certainly periphery (Karaoke mode) the others are totally necessary.

 

The Bluetooth function allows you to seamlessly connect with other wireless devices such as wireless headphones, compatible speaker docks, car audio head units and other devices. Alongside the Bluetooth function, Sony has incorporated a variety of entertainment features.
To top it all off, the Sony is beautifully designed with a smooth user interface.

 

Our panel liked the drag-and-drop interface which freed them from the binds of iTunes, and the pitch and speed alteration modes, which would appeal to musicians.Trusted Reviews

JayBird Freedom Headphones featured on The Gadget Show

FreedomJayBird Freedom Headphones

£99

 

The Freedoms are the world’s smallest Bluetooth stereo headset and lead the charge in the Bluetooth enabled headphone trend. Simply, the Freedoms are two noise-isolating ear buds connected via adjustable neck strap and sit securely in the ear, freeing the user of any wires.

 

Last week, the JayBird Freedom headphones were featured on the gadget geek’s weekly TV digest – The Gadget Show. The Freedom’s were included in an ‘Ultimate Travel Bag’ feature. Being high performing and versatile headphones their tech credibilities shone through to win their inclusion on the show. The headphones have received large amounts of praise since their beginning and it’s not only the Gadget Show they’ve impressed:

 

‘We are so incredibly impressed with JayBird’s new Freedom Earbuds. First of all, while larger than normal, wired earbuds, they’re much more compact than any other Bluetooth headphones we’ve seen.’ iCreate


Taking calls and playing music is all done wirelessly with the headphones. Connect to your Bluetooth enabled device and enjoy pristine audio. A hugely important factor that is often overlooked with top quality headphones is their usability. Too often you find headphones that won’t last the hustle of a daily commute let alone a trip to the gym. The Freedoms are designed for the active user and it’s the active user they serve.
Coming with a guarantee against sweat means they will withstand being put through their paces. Cordless headphones for any purpose is a luxury, but when exercising once you go wireless, you might find they are less luxury and more necessity.

 

The headphones sit securely in your ear and deliver a strong Bluetooth connection. Use them on your commute, to the gym, out for a walk, or anywhere. They blend top quality components and output with usability.

Amp3 expecting arrival of X mini KAI. X mi’s latest Bluetooth enabled device

KAI
X mini KAI capsule speaker

Arriving soon

£69

Here at Amp3 we are very aware of the sheer power packed into the X mini capsule speaker range. They bring maximum noise to a minimum size. With every model that comes out X mi expertly fine tune their models to bring a better quality of sound to the same speaker. With the X mini II they advanced on their already clear sound to make it even clearer; with the X mini RAVE they brought us FM radio without increasing the size of the product or compromising battery life.

All these additions are well and good but perhaps a little boring. There is only so far an X mini can go without it repeating itself. The new X mini KAI capsule speaker transcends any muted expectations and enters the connected world of wireless Bluetooth.

By connecting wirelessly to any Bluetooth enabled media device you can both control your music and volume through the toggle at the base of the device and remotely through your phone or MP3 player. Connecting your device is effortless and rids you of the hassle of cables.

Not only is this a sophisticated upgrade but it immediately gives the KAI speaker serious purpose beyond that of producing clear and loud sound. The built in microphone transforms the KAI from being a speaker to a purpose built hub for conference calls. A double advantage in that it can be used for social purposes and professional. The speaker’s capacity for sheer volume coupled with X mi’s sharp focus on quality means calls are received loud and clear.

Retaining the standard 3.5mm jack the KAI will still connect to your MP3 player via this cable. Though most MP3 players and phones are equipped with a wireless function, this is still crucial in connecting multiple X mini speakers through the innovative Buddy Jack. Using the Buddy Jack option you can connect multiple X mini speakers to maximise sound. By connecting a KAI model you can control the entire fleet of speakers wirelessly.

Though the X mini KAI capsule speaker is priced significantly higher than previous models the functionality of this particular model far exceeds the expectations of this price point.

The KAI will be available shortly from Advanced MP3 Players for £69.

Check back here for regular updates on its arrival.
