The JBL GO 3 will help you beat the summertime heat

Yes, even while you’re stuck at home for the most part



Don’t you just miss going to the beach and relaxing under the sun? Or, maybe having a nice vacation away from the city? Unfortunately, we’re still not out of this pandemic just yet so we’re basically stuck indoors for a little bit longer. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little summer fun!

Of course, nothing completes a great summer outing than the music, and JBL has a speaker that works quite well for this situation. Introducing the JBL GO 3, a compact speaker suited for the travelling vacationner — yes, even the indoor traveller.

At PhP 2,399, here’s what the JBL GO 3 speakers bring to the table:

Travel-friendly form factor

The JBL GO 3 comes in a rather tiny yet portable form factor, with a wide range of color options. One part of the overall design is the integrated loop on the side, just right where the power button is. Essentially, you can bring this speaker wherever, and whenever.

Also, it only weighs about 0.21 kg, making it extremely light and easy to carry around. Whether it’s in your pocket or your bag, you won’t have a problem taking it anywhere. Plus, it’s built using fabrics that can withstand water and dust (more on that later).

Great sound quality especially for the outdoors

Don’t let the compact form factor deceive you because these speakers pack a punch in audio quality. See, the JBL GO 3 integrates the company’s patented JBL Pro Sound. What this brings is an audio experience filled with some punchy bass in the mix. For the most part, they weren’t wrong.

Whether you’re having a soundtrip by the beach or just by your indoor garden, the audio sounds quite deep and rich. Now, I can’t guarantee you will hear the second voices in most of your favorite songs, but you will hear your music even if you’re far away from the speaker. Also, it comes with media and volume controls on top.

Of course, just make sure your device isn’t too far away from the speaker as you connect to it via Bluetooth. As such, the speaker connects to either your PC or mobile devices (both Android & iOS) for the full portable experience.

Charging on the go

In terms of battery life, the JBL GO 3 posts a good five hours of playtime with a single charge. Now, you may think that’s not much compared to some TWS earphones, but for speakers like this, it’s quite long. Whether you’re out on the beach or just at an indoor pool, the JBL GO 3 keeps the music going from your arrival to departure.

Inside the package, you will find a USB Type-C charging cable that’s relatively short in length. If your speaker runs out of juice, simply plug the cable into either your PC or a power bank, and it should charge it. The thing is, the speaker takes about two and a half hours to fully charge up, which is a little long.

Water-resistant and dustproof

Remember how I mentioned that the speakers were built to withstand water and dust? That’s because the JBL GO 3 is certified with an IP67 rating. This means that you can submerge this speaker under one meter (max.) of water for 30 minutes, and that it’s totally protected against dust.

This is great for those trips to the sandy beach, or even a dip by the pool. Also, if you’re planning to remain indoors, you can even use this speaker while doing your workout routines. With the IP67 rating, you don’t have to worry too much about any water or dirt ruining your audio quality.

The JBL GO 3 is available on online retailers such as Lazada, Shopee, Onward PH, and JBL Concept Stores.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry



Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.

If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.

Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.

Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.

The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5



Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
