The AudioMod for iPhone X costs $70. Sarah Tew/CNET The concept behind AudioMod is pretty simple. If you’re going to add a Mophie-like charging case to your iPhone ($800 at Cricket Wireless), you might as well add a headphone jack, too, because you’re covering up the Lightning port in the process.

Post Image

Pulling the QSAN’s XCube XT3002T out of its box, I was immediately impressed with its get-down-to-business-in-style good looks. I figured if it even came close to matching the performance of similar Synology and QNAP products, it would be a winner. It did, and it is.

Post Image

Vizio had a good run over the last couple of years as CNET’s favorite TV for the money, but this year its domination ends. The TCL 6 series is a better television than the 2018 Vizio M-Series. Of course there are still reasons to like the M-Series. Its image quality is almost as good as […]
