Only weeks after the original Cube T8 was released, Cube, the dominant Chinese brand in making tablets with smartphone functions, introduced the enhanced version – the T8 Plus, which features a more vibrant Full HD IPS display, a more powerful octa-core processor as well as better cameras.

Cube has been very successful in selling tablets with smartphone functionalities. Ever since the release of the Cube Talk 79 back in 2013, the Chinese brand has been dominating in this special area. The Cube Talk 9X, T7 and T9 were all once considered as the best offerings from the Chinese tablet industry.

The Cube T8 is the newest member of Cube’s successful 4G tablet line. With the latest version of Android OS, moderate specs and a very considerate price ($79), it is definitely designed to woo the buyers with a lower budget, buyers whom the $157 Cube T7 failed to impress.

THE GOOD: The Astrotec BX50 In-Ear-Monitor offers nice wireless sound via Bluetooth, a comfortable fit, and easily connects to your smartphones, tablets, laptops or any device which has Bluetooth.

THE BAD: It doesn’t beat wired systems of similar price in terms of bass and overall sound quality, and the battery life of the BX50 isn’t very promising.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The Astrotec BX50 is easy to set up and delivers decent performance for both movie watching and music listening, it is arguably the best Bluetooth IEM under $50 and an especially worthy investment for those who enjoy gym and jogging.

It’s not easy being a Chinese headphone brand, with stiff competition from internationally leading brands such as beats, Monster, Sennheiser and Bose, as well as domestic rivals such as Sound Magic, Somic and Dunu, many Chinese brands just couldn’t survive after struggling for a few years.

However, Astrotec manages to survive and even thrive in the headphone industry, releasing a wide range of IEMs and headphones every year, from entry-level models such as the $26.5 AM700, to the premium models such as the $628 AM1000, they just seem to have a solution for everyone.

Earlier this year, Cube astonished us all with the i7, also known as the first Core M powered tablet from a Chinese brand. The tablet itself enjoyed great amount of success in the domestic market, winning numerous awards and receiving more than 99% of positive customer feedback on JD.com (higher than the iPad Air 2). However, the RMB3,599 ($565) original price was a little bit uninviting for consumers with a lower budget. Trying to attract more buyers, Cube released two more Core-M powered Windows tablets – the i7 Stylus and the i7 CM, and priced them at RMB1,999 ($314) and RMB2,499 ($392) respectively.
