On The Bleeding Edge: Bleeding Edge TV 596: Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones review

Chromecast Audio

The future of music is streaming - whether that means streaming from a service like Spotify, Apple Music, or Google Play Music, or streaming your local library throughout your home to various devices in your house. Did you know that you can take any of your old speakers and breath new life into them, allowing them to join in on streaming content from either your local library or the cloud?

All you need is the Google Chromecast Audio and a Wi-Fi network. Simply plug the device into an available speaker through the AUX port, then into USB for power, and your old speakers are now ready for your streaming music. You can send audio from your smartphone, tablet, or computer right over your Wi-Fi network, which provides a much stronger and robust connection than using Bluetooth.

Microsoft has released the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 limited edition console, and I think it's the most impressive game console release to date from a design perspective. I give you a look at the custom red Xbox One S with Gears of War 4 design elements in this episode. As you can see, aside from the battle worn look, you have the deep laser etching for the claw marks on both the Xbox One S console itself, as well as the included Gears of War 4 controller. Microsoft did a fantastic job!

Pretty much every PC has a horrible built-in microphone, so if you are looking to do Skype chats, podcast recordings, Twitch streaming, dictation, or anything else that requires great audio - you'll end up sounding pretty horrible if you don't have a great mic. You don't need to know what the BEST PC microphone is, but you just need something decent enough to capture your voice without making you sound like you are in a wind tunnel. That's where the Samson Go Mic Connect comes in.

You can pick up the Samson Go Mic Pro now.

The jet black iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 is obviously hot, while the black iPhone 7 is super stealthy and subdued. But which color is better? I battle Austin Creed from UpUpDownDown in a test of skill in order to find out which is the best iPhone 7 color - or which is the best iPhone 7 black - that you can buy. Arguing got us nowhere, so we had to take it up a notch with a baby food challenge...

What is your favorite iPhone 7 and 7 Plus color?

You can pick up the iPhone 7 now.
