Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen these days, but these ones can something special: a pair can connect together to give you proper stereo sound. We’ve been sent two to test out; here’s our review of the AOSM68!Features & SpecificationsBluetooth 4.1 up to 20 metres True Wireless Stereo technology IPX5 water resistant and shock-proof Long battery life (8 hours) 2x 6W speakers for crystal-clear audio 158 x 56 x 56mm 354 gramsDesign

When I was a kid, there was nothing I wanted more than an alarm clock radio. I eventually got one years later, finding one of those old flip clocks at a yard sale while I was at university. It eventually broke when I took it apart to see how it worked, and I’ve been without one ever since… until today!
This alarm clock radio from Aukey is much more advanced, with Bluetooth streaming, 40 FM radio presets, USB charging and a classic red-on-black LCD display. It retails for £34 or $50, and we’ve got one in to review today. Let’s get started!FeaturesAll-in-one clock radio and Bluetooth speaker Alarm gradually ascends in volume Snooze [...]
