Zenex Wireless Speaker for Mobile Devices ZN-SP5986 Review

Zenex has an appropriate tag line “on the move” with products that truly are mobile. We received a wireless speaker without knowing where exactly it came from and decided it was worth a review. The wireless speaker system is a very simple device that it about the height and width of a phone and about 2-3 times as deep. This being said it is very easily taken with you on the go. See the video below for a full video review of the Zenex Wireless speaker as well as how it actually works.

Google Nexus 7 vs. iPad Mini Compared

We compare the Google Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini based on device specifications and features. With Apple trying to say their iPad Mini is a better option by comparing nothing more than a webpage and its size seems a bit close minded so we have decided to go through everything and see how they rally compare.

We’re undoubtedly swimming in accessories these days and as an Android user, the options are practically endless. Between Bluetooth speakers, Bluetooth headphones, wired speakers, and wired headphones, it’s often difficult to know what’s worth your time and what isn’t. When we had the opportunity to take a look at the MobiAir Blueooth Speaker Dock from iLuv, we were immediately skeptical. I’ve personally got 3 docking stations in the apartment, and it seems like almost EVERY company is turning out a rendition of a speaker-dock to fit in that market-space. Upon use, my trepidation quickly subsided.
