dockBoss and dockBoss+ arrive at Amp3! Rated 80% by RegHardware


Ever have a look around a shop and noticed how much preference there is for Apple products? Probably not if you’re using an Apple product already – which is true for most people out there. A serious problem lies ahead for those of us using any product but an Apple product when on the lookout for speakers. In every shop the majority of speakers will likely be fitted with a 30-pin dock suitable for Apple products only. Finally, a solution is available. Enter the dockBoss converter.

The dockBoss and dockBoss+ are innovative devices that instantly make an iPod dock compatible with a wide range of players. They ‘speak the language of all systems’ where one end of the dockBoss connects to the iPod dock and the other is a standard 3.5mm jack that fits a range of audio-output devices including laptops and portable radios. Hurrah! Finally a way to benefit from an Apple dominated market without an Apple product!

Even better, they love it at RegHardware too! It is RegHardware Recommended and was rated 80%!

A winning product all round. Don’t hesitate to get yours today!

~ The dockBoss is £22.99 ~

~ The dockBoss+ is £29.99 ~

JayBird Freedom Headphones featured on The Gadget Show

FreedomJayBird Freedom Headphones



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.

Cling by name, cling by nature. The Clingo hands-free mounts score serious safety points at Amp3


Clingo Hands-Free Mount

Clings by name, clings by nature. The Clingo range of in-car mounts are an innovative way to keep your phone in your car. They are made to ensure your phone is within glancing distance from the windscreen so to not fully detract from driving.


The Clingo Hands-Free mount will stick to your dashboard or your windscreen. The ball and socket joint gives ample ability to adjust the position of the mount for different drivers without having to dismantle the mount completely.


The Clingo Vent Mount (seen at bottom of article) will do just the same but instead is positioned in your car propping itself in the car’s vents. The Vent Mount comes highly recommended and even made it into the Amp3 staff Buyers Guide for best in-car accessories. You can read that here. It is less flexible than the Hands-Free mount but is easier to take in and out of the car. Mounts often pose an unforeseen risk when left visible in your car. Even as little as the suction marks left on your windscreen will lead thieves to believe you have a SatNav or other device stored out of sight. With the Clingo Vent Mount you can easily remove it from your vents and pop it in your glove compartment.
Any kind of phone will stick to the green pad of the Clingo mounts. They are held firmly and securely and leave no kind of sticky residue on your phone.
The Clingo mounts are a simple and safe solution to have in your car. You can get the Clingo Hands-Free mount for £16.75 and the Clingo Vent-Mount for £14.89.

Register Hardware Include 5 Advanced MP3 Player Headphones in Their Latest Review Round-Up


An impressive total of 5 Advanced MP3 Player headphones were featured in the latest Register Hardware Top Ten Earphones for Mobiles round-up. The experts over at Register Hardware have listed the best earphones with microphones to use with your mobile and unsurprisingly half of the featured products are stocked by Advanced MP3 Players. Check out the full product round-up here.


a-Jays Four



This model from a-Jays has an impressive noise isolating capacity and a 3 button remote and microphone and voice control. The stylish flat cable makes tangling less frequent and the headphones perform most impressively in voice frequency ranges.

‘The overall sound is very good, delivering a punchy bass and a slightly more pronounced midrange – which seems appropriate for a headset that claims to be “optimised for voice”.’ RegHardware
Rated: 80%


MEElectronics SP51P



MEE have incorporated a sound tuning ability for these headphones. A lot of earphones built with a microphone function have a sound preference that suits midranges to accommodate the sole sound of a voice when taking a call. The SP51P model lets you change the sound to suit the music, device or simply your own personal preference.

‘[…] the output is commendable and the adjustable soundscape is a feature I’d like to see implemented in more headsets.’ RegHardware Rated: 70%

Phonak Audeo 112



These headphones are made with comfort and sound reproduction as a priority with the ability to take calls as an added bonus. Like the SP51P model the Audeo Phonak headphones use filters to allow you to tailor the sound of your music.

‘Noise isolation is good too and the built-in microphone performs well – there’s a multifunction control button for smartphones too.’ RegHardware

RegHardware recommendedRegister Hardware Recommended and rated: 90%

Sennheiser MM30i



Made specifically for the latest Apple models the MM30i has an in-line remote that lets you control everything from volume to voice control with minimal effort. The sound is as typically the case with Sennheiser bass heavy, but high quality. Passive noise isolation is a welcomed feature.

‘Small and basic but bloomin’ marvellous, these Sennheisers are a great choice for any iPhone user seeking a budget headset with a lot of oomph.’ RegHardware

Register Hardware Editor’s Choice and rated: 90%


Skullcandy FIX


It’s all in the name with these headphones. Designed to fit securely in the ear, Skullcandy market these headphones as a pair to suit the active user. The sound is well rounded leaning toward a bass sound with the friction free cable reducing distortion.

‘The earbuds are a comfortable firm fit that isolate noise well enough to hear the music and not so much that you could wander into oncoming traffic. Oh, just like it says on the tin, they stay in place too.’ RegHardware Rated: 70%
