Welcome to my first impressions and unboxing of the Mophie 3 in 1 wireless charger that charges your AirPods, Apple Watch & iPhone all wirelessly. Fast wireless charging is available for the iPhone as well.
This is what AirPower should have been. It’s a seriously cool product and currently exclusive to Apple, retailing for £130.
One of the positive aspects of the wireless charger is the two white lights on the front edge initially and gently glow for two or three seconds before turning off. The left white light is to acknowledge AirPods are charging and the right side is for your iPhone. So at night , you won’t get an annoying charging led light that so many other chargers seem to have!
It’s expensive, it’s sold exclusively at Apple. But it’s relatively compact and looks fabulous on your bedside table.

The Dali iO is luxurious wireless headphones – designed and developed in Denmark. With class-leading battery time, audio comfort and sound performance.
DALI, Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries, grew out of Scandinavia’s leading audio retail chain in 1983. Dalie strive to create loudspeakers with outstanding performance and “natural sound” at competitive prices.
In 2019, DALI offers an exciting range of speakers to suit every taste from the cost-conscious SPEKTOR series to the high-performance speaker EPICON 8. Dali has over one million satisfied customers in more than 70 countries.
A key contributing factor to DALI’s superiority is exclusive DALI driver units designed and developed from scratch by their Danish engineers and produced in their own controlled facilities. With their unique driver technologies they are able to design and build speaker systems that makes it possible for listeners to hear their favourite music exactly as the artists intended.
So the Dali iO continues its tradition with a wireless headphone that is built for extended listening with a comfortable, durable design and a natural transparent sound that never tires.
Dali have released the i04 and i06. The i06 have active noise cancellation and retail for around 399 euros. I have already reviewed the Dali iO-4 headphones. Clickhere.
What is really interesting about the new headphones, is that Dali didn’t go and re badge a Chinese headphone, they designed, built and manufactured everything from scratch. The headphones are in essence a Dali loudspeaker, miniaturised on the ear. What they did do, was buy Sony’s noise cancellation tech for the i06. So you actually have the best of both worlds with this version.
So what is my verdict on these new headphones? Go take a look now!
