Asus N550JV Review

Asus revamped their laptop portfolio months ago and that included the refreshing of their N series.

Back in September, Harman-Kardon/JBL showcased a handful of new audio gears at IFA 2013. Among those is a premium, on-ear headphones dubbed as SoHo which we’ll take a closer look at after the jump.
