It's been about a year now since we checked out our first pair of truly wireless Bluetooth earphones, and in that time, the field has expanded exponentially. JLab's Epic Air earphones come with the strangest, but perhaps most interesting, charging case we've seen to date—it has its own built-in charging cable and a rugged exterior. From an audio standpoint, the earphones deliver some powerful bass response matched with enough highs to keep things relatively balanced.
B&O Play's portable Bluetooth speaker lineup gets an update with the Beolit 17. At $499, the Beolit 17 is more powerful than its predecessor, the Beolit 15, yet it costs $100 less. From a design standpoint, B&O Play succeeds once again—the Beolit 17 is easy to operate and retains the simple, refined aesthetic of its predecessor. Sonically, it delivers a strong audio experience, and you can even adjust the EQ to your taste using the free B&O Play app.
The bar has been raised in recent years for affordable headphones -they no longer get a free pass simply because they don't distort on deep bass. The House of Marley Roar On-Ear comes with zero accessories, which is forgivable in this price range, but does the $39.99 pair deliver bass response and clarity like some of its competition now can?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
