There are far too many options out there when it comes to headphones. Some prefer the stylish look of Beats where as others go for hardcore sound quality on say, something like a set from Beyerdynamics. One company that has always stood out from the pack is V-MODA. Its high-quality cans are made from premium materials and sit somewhere in between the fashionable headsets and a more audiophile-centric design. Today the company is ready to unveil its latest with an upgraded pair of the popular Crossfade 2 Wireless over-ear headphones. expand full story
Earlier this month, I ditched my roommate and moved into my first solo apartment. Like any tech fanatic would do, I used this as an opportunity to completely overhaul my desk setup. As a full-time student as well as an editor at 9to5Mac, having a desk that I enjoy being at for hours on end is a necessity – and for the first time, I feel like I’ve accomplished that.
Read on for a full walk through of the desk I like to call home…
National Teacher day is coming up on May 8th, and schools celebrate Teacher Appreciation week from May 7th–11th.

For my first few years working at home, I spent countless hours sitting at a cheap desk hunched over in front of a laptop. As many who have been in those shoes can probably attest, this isn’t exactly the most friendly to your health — mentally nor physically. So with my new home office I decided to spruce things up a bit and build my entire setup around the idea that it’s possible to work in front a computer all day and not feel terrible at 5 o’clock — and hopefully, stay healthier in the long-term as well.

Gnarbox hit the scene awhile back with its first-generation portable hard drive that allows content creators to back up movies and pictures on-the-spot after being captured. But this isn’t your average hard drive. Gnarbox went a step further with a fully integrated processor that enables instant editing of content long before you’re back at a Mac or PC. Even better, it’s wrappped in a rugged casing that’s both shock- and dust-proof for just about any scenario.
Today, Gnarbox has introduced the second generation of its portable storage solution that features a slimmed-down design, new connectivity along with a built-in solid-state drive for faster storage and transfers.
Tablo has been working to reinvent the cord-cutting accessory market for some time. While the natural inclination is to go the way of the way streaming media player, Tablo has been steadily introducing new DVR set-top boxes year after year. Its latest, the Tablo Dual Lite, delivers whole-home network connectivity and the flexibility of choosing your own storage.
Those with a keen eye will note that physical design is largely the same as last year’s release. But Tablo has changed up a few key features, most notable of which is the price. The new Dual Lite starts at $140, which is 30% less than its predecessor. More below.
Today we are going to be taking a look at some of our favorite options for storing our sample libraries and other files for content creation. No matter what it is we are creating, at some point or other, storage is a must, whether it’s for project assets, backups or archival purposes. While this particular roundup will be focusing mainly on music producers and their sample libraries, many of our suggestions will work with other applications as well. expand full story
Marshall has announced this morning that it is expanding its lineup of Bluetooth headphones with the new Mid ANC. Over the last few years Marshall has methodically been building its headphone offerings, but today’s release is the first pair to offer active noise cancellation.
If you’re familiar with Marshall’s stylings at all, you’ll notice that today’s release has familiar looks based on the brand’s iconic designs. The Mid ANC is a follow-up to the Mid Bluetooth, which is fairly similar in both function and layout. More below.
Behind the Screens is a weekly 9to5Toys series that takes you through our writers’ setups, be it mobile, desktop, gaming or home theater. Next up is Bradley Chambers, he writes a weekly column called Making the Grade for 9to5Mac.
Welcome to my office! My name is Bradley Chambers, and I write over at 9to5Mac with a weekly article on Apple in K-12 education. In addition to writing for 9to5Mac, I also write for The Sweet Setup and Tools and Toys. Over at The Sweet Setup, we cover the best apps and workflows for the Apple ecosystem. Because of that, a lot of my apps are usually “in transition”. While I usually settle on a set of core apps, I tend to bounce around a lot. I also find switching up apps to be a healthy way to make sure your devices/services are still meeting the majority of your needs.

I know a high-end ebike when I see one and this Ancheer 250W is absolutely not high-end. In fact, it would probably be a bit of a stretch to call this a mid-tier electric bike. Ancheer, a Chinese company that also sells USB peripherals, Fitness equipment and other knickknacks, took a bunch of base level components and put them on a Huffy-level all aluminum bike frame and out of this concoction got a good sub-$600 ebike. So how good/bad is it? Let me tell you…

Until recently, despite having a desk and full-sized PC, most of my work was done on my MacBook primarily because it is portable and I could work from anywhere. It wasn’t until I moved my desk away from my TV and purchased a new UltraWide monitor that I actually found this set up to be beneficial.
Despite primarily using my Windows 10 PC while sitting at my desk, I still keep my MacBook and Google Pixelbook nearby if I feel the need to get up and move. All of this together makes for a great at-home workplace that I can use for work as well as play.
