Today we’re looking at the £25 Jelly Comb Wireless TV headphones. These headphones connect to any 3.5mm or stereo phono source via a low-latency wireless transmission, and are intended to be used with a TV. Let’s see how they perform.Design
These Jelly Comb wireless TV headphones come as two components: a set of circumaural headphones and a small transmitter box.
The transmitter is a small ovaloid box, with glossy black plastic on the top and matte plastic on the bottom. An LED shows when it is turned on at the top, while the side has its Micro USB power input, a power switch and a 3.5mm input.
A 3.5mm to dual phono adapter is provided, as [...]

Today we’re looking at three video adapters from ICZI. We received these together, tested them together, and now we’re writing a review together. How sweet. Let’s get started!1. DisplayPort to HDMI adapter What does it do?Converts a DisplayPort input into an HDMI input Useful for desktops or laptops with DP but no (free) HDMI 3840 x 2160 @ 30Hz, 1920 x 1080 @ 120Hz Only works one-way (DP to HDMI) 30 day free returns, one year warrantyDoes it work?
Yup, we connected it to our desktop’s DisplayPort on a GTX 1080 and connected a monitor via HDMI. No configuration was required beyond switching to the HDMI input on our monitor.
The iClever BoostCube is pretty well named. It’s a vaguely cuboid mains adapter that will charge your smartphone or tablet with speed. We’ve been sent a sample from iClever, so let’s put it to the test!Design
The BoostCube has two 2.4A USB ports on one side, and a mains plug on the other side. The ports provide 48W in total. 2.4A is sufficient to charge almost all smartphones and tablets at full speed, although experts may note that fast charging technologies such as Qualcomm’s Quick Charge or OnePlus’ DashCharge can offer better performance.
For our review unit, this is a UK plug; US and EU versions also exist. (And the US [...]
ICZI sent us a Micro USB cable, so let’s put it to the test!FeaturesMaterial: Nylon braided Compatibility: Quick Charge 3.0 Length: 1.8m (6 feet) Colour: Bright GoldDesign
The ICZI Micro USB cable has an attractive braided design; our sample came in a fetching bright gold colourway. The cable terminates in aluminium connectors at both ends, which should provide decent long-term survivability.
The cable is 6 feet or 1.8m long, and is delivered with a velcro tie to keep things neat and tidy.Testing
We used the ICZI Micro USB cable for charging our Galaxy S7 Edge and transferring photos onto a laptop. We faced no issues [...]
Laptops these days don’t come with many USB ports — and if your laptop has a USB-C port or two, then you may find yourself with no full-size USB-A ports at all. (Cough, MacBook, cough.) That’s where this USB-C to USB-A hub from ICZI comes in — it turns one USB-C port into seven USB 3.0 ports. That should be more than enough ports for even the most dedicated peripheral owner, right? We’ve been sent a sample from ICZI, so let’s put this USB-C hub to the test!Features & SpecificationsInput: 7x USB 3.0 ports, 1x mains adapter Output: 1x USB Type-C port Dimensions: 116 x 42 x 14.5 mm (4.56 x 1.65 x 0.57 inches) Weight: 59 grams Contents: [...]
