It has been five long years since we’ve had a new Rock Band release from Harmonix. We were thrilled when it was announced back in the winter that the fourth generation of the popular franchise would be making its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Along with that announcement came word of updated accessories, including a Band-in-a-Box bundle from Mad Catz with a Fender Stratocaster-inspired guitar.

So after five years, what does Rock Band 4 have in store for its loyal following? Aside from updated hardware, a new feature allows gamers to add their own “personal signature” on each song with freestyle guitar solos and drum fills. The game is set to ship tomorrow and we’re ready to tell you about our experience rocking out at home.

Amazon offers the TiVo Roamio OTA HD DVR with lifetime service for $299.99 with free shipping. TiVo normally charges $49.99 for the Roamio OTA DVR box plus an additional $14.99 per month (with a 1-yr commitment) to keep it running. With this deal you pay $300 and never have to pay another dime for TiVo service. That means you’ll be forking over an additional $250 up-front, but you’ll recoup that in about 17 months by not having to pay the recurring $15 fee. This TiVo is designed to work with over-the-air HDTV antennas (Mohu/AmazonBasics are best bets).

It’ll record up to four shows at once and can store up to 75 hours of HD programming on its 500GB hard drive. It also features TiVo’s popular guide and suggestion interfaces, with unified search across TV and streaming apps including Netflix and Amazon Prime. You can even access TiVO from your iPhone or iPad with its iOS apps, but you’ll need the Stream box to actually watch TV and movies on your mobile devices. Just keep in mind that it doesn’t support cable cards.

There are thousands of headphone options on the market today. Most consumers (and our readers) are pretty picky about the style and connectivity used to enjoy their music. Some are fans of over-ear designs while others prefer earbuds.

No matter your preference, build quality is likely at the top of your list if you’re looking for a serious pair of headphones. We recently reviewed the Trinity Delta earbuds, which are one of the more unique pairs of earbuds that we’ve seen. Primarily because each set is individually carved out of a solid block of aluminum. It’s quite impressive.

Head below to find out how you can win a pair for yourself plus an exclusive 20% discount for 9to5Toys readers.

October 2

It has been a big month for electric vehicles, with Tesla notably stealing the show with its event earlier this week. On the lower end of the cost spectrum, there is an ever increasing interest in affordable battery-driven transportation. We have already seen motorcycle and skateboard prototypes that each offer a unique alternative to traditional counterparts.

The eBike community is growing as well. One of the more intriguing electric bikes on the market comes way of Sondors. After previously raising over six million dollars on Indiegogo, Storm and his crew are back with a refreshed model and a lower price tag on Kickstarter that makes this affordable eBike more attractive than ever.
