Keep your EarPods in your ears with Sprng Clip – Review

EarPods were supposed to be the perfect earphones. Expertly designed and tested on hundreds of ears, they were crafted to fit everyone’s ear.

AL13 v2 Aluminum Bumper with 0 signal loss for iPhone hits KickStarter

Last year, I mentioned the AL13 bumper a couple of times here at TiP. It was – and still is – a fantastic, sturdy aluminum bumper for iPhone 5.

They’re waterproof, dust-proof and everything in between. And normally, they’re not obscenely chunky. One of the latest in range was on show at MWC 2014; the nüüd for iPhone 5s. The nüüd is…

Otterbox Preserver for iPhone 5s – Hands On [MWC 2014]

Along with a couple of other accessories at the Otterbox stand this year was the Preserver Series. As a comparison, the closest thing I’ve tried that’s close to it is the Incipio Atlas ID waterproof case for iPhone 5s. Or, a much thinner version of the Otterbox Armor case. It features: – Two-piece case that snaps together for easy assembly –…
