Very recently we took a close look at the Silicon Power Blast Plug BP81 series of Bluetooth enabled earbuds and walked away impressed with the state of the wireless industry. While far from perfect their combination of ease of use, durability, reasonably good clarity, and at a very reasonable price made for a very good argument in their favor. Today we are going to look at the $37 Blast Plug BP82 series to see what has and has not changed.

On the surface, these two sets of earbuds do share a few things in common. The most obvious is both are making use of the same BT 5 bus and the same underlying BT5 controller. Both come with a carry case that doubles as a charger. Both offer 3-4 hours of run time before the earbuds need to be recharged. Both models are reasonably lightweight (with the 81s weighing a waifish 7.9grams and the 82s barely more at 9.2grams). Both come with the same 3-year warranty. Both are even reasonably priced at about $37 USD.

Where they differ however is the secret to understanding who each model has been designed for. The Blast Plug BP82’s forgoes the IP certification and in return have replaced it with a simplified interface. Precisely, instead of two small buttons per earbud the BP82’s make use of a touch interface with LED glow ring. This certainly adds a dash of style at the same time making it extremely easy to use.

Also changed is the carrying case. Gone is the long tubular chassis with a slide-out holder. In its stead is a more compact case with flip-open lid. This change makes carrying the 82s extremely easy, to say the least. These are the most obvious differences, but their sound profile also differs. By the end of this review, we intend to make it crystal clear the pros and cons of each, and armed with this information can make an informed decision on if the Blast Plug BP82 is right for you and your specific needs.

    • As such, the IronWolf 125 Pro may be overkill for your needs and the noticeably lower asking price of the standard model may make it a better overall value. Of course, peace of mind is priceless, so if you can afford one (or more) of these bad boys the IronWolf Pro 960GB model should be on your short, short list. We foresee it becoming a cult classic in experienced homebrew circles. Just as we foresee the standard doing the same for the NAS Appliance and PC storage market. Rest assured, no matter which model you choose you can be confident that they will not be the bottleneck in your NAS device and certainly are worth their asking price… and then some.     Read the full review below:   https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/ironwolf-pro-125-review  
    • The all new Crucial X6 may not win any awards for sheer speed (as it is SATA and not NVMe based) nor for having the lowest asking price in the market… and certainly no awards for being the most robust; but those are about the only major negatives we can think of. This is a rather flexible, predictable, and not overly expensive model that we can see making waves in a corner of the market that has become rather saturated of late. That in and of itself is impressive.   Read the full review below  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x6-2tb-external-ssd-review/  
    • Taken as a whole, if you are not impressed by what Seagate was able to do… you have not been paying attention. It may not be flashy, it arguably is not being marketed optimally, and certainly is not a ‘revolutionary break through’ we have come to expect, but this new gen is a great evolution to an existing foundation. A firm foundation that has been further refined, and this refinement does pay tangible dividends. As such, if you can afford the asking price the Seagate IronWolf Pro 18TB easily justifies its professional moniker and its asking price – and then some. For those that cannot? Fear not, the release of this 18TB capacity model also means eventual price adjustment(s) to the smaller capacity models… and they are not chopped bits of mystery meat either – especially when they get 2TB platter tech in the future.       https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/seagate-ironwolf-pro-18tb-review/
