5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Gem. One of 2016 Best Tech Items. "BT80": A Critical Review, 19 May 2016
Length:: 0:38 Mins

We're approaching the midpoint of this year and I've found another item that will be in my Top 10 Tech Items for 2016.

I see a lot of headphone each year and very few of the "consumer grade/ entry level" tech items standout from the crowd, but so far the "BT80" is definitely a great product, regardless of price.

I don't know the company "iSelector" which is probably just a company that buys tech products from abroad and re-brands it. However, they chose a decently made pair of headphones to invest in.

First, the comfort.
These are super, super comfortable. They don't grip the head (and therefore seal outside noise) but they fit comfortably and maybe someone close by could hear some sound coming from them if you have your device's volume up very loud. I think, for the most part, that they'll be silent in public.

This is made out of somewhat soft, durable plastic with a PU leather cushioning.

The BT80 is also a dual digital and analog headset. It has a bluetooth radio installed but it also has an 3.5mm jack with the cord so you can play through the headphones without having to use any of the lithium ion battery charge that's stored up.

* (That feature is something ALL headphone should have built in standard)

The set also comes with a hard case and within this hardcase is a convenient pouch where the supplied micro USB charging cable and the analog plug is stored.

But, the meat and potatoes of this headset is the sound.

I played various songs through it and I was wonderfully surprised at how well a broad range of sounds with.

Listening to the opening chords of "White Flag" by Dido and hearing the sound drift from the right ear to the left before the vocals kicked in was something special.

I also appreciated the harmonies in Heart's "These Dreams"-- great stuff, here.

The headset also picked up the limitations on some mp3 tracks I created and it was apparent listening to some underground Ice Cube cuts that the limitations of a lossy, compressed format like mp3 would never hold its weight with audiophiles who treasure the highest fidelity possible. But, this also tells me that the dynamic range on this set is maybe better than stated.

All in all, this is, despite its unassuming style, one of the best generic headphones on the market today.

And, I'm certain, I will still feel this way six months from now.

Product received from seller for review consideration.


EC Technology Shining Ear-clip Sport Headphones Bluetooth 4.1 with HiFi Sound - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars I do love EC Tech's products and have for years, 21 Feb. 2016
I do love EC Tech's products and have for years.

The "Shine" is the newest wireless, sports headphone that they've just released.

First, the design, from my standpoint leaves a bit to be desired. It has an ear clip design-- which doesn't work for everyone. The ear clip has a piece that wedges itself on the outer ear, for some this won't stay in. I'm a prime example of that. So, someone like me will have to find one of those standard ear plugs and replace it in order for it to go into the ear canal.

But, for testing purposes, I depressed the headphones into my ears to hear exactly how it would sound if fit wasn't an issue.

And, they sound great. The headphones have the standard bass-emphasising filters built in and this is what really matters. The bass in Luther Vandross' voice for his Live in Concert in Madison Square Garden was exceptional for a "consumer-grade" headphone.

Also, and this might be just a gimmick but the plug that holds both of the earpieces together is translucent and it glows in both pairing mode as well as in live mode. It's visually appealing but you quickly forget about.

The buttons are on the top right side and is sufficiently raised so you should have no problems identifying the button you need.

I guess the real issue here is design, they should add the standard ear plugs instead of the ear hooks. I can understand if the speakers, themselves are too broad for the ear canal, but there's ways around this. Ear clips are not the solution, however.

5.0 out of 5 stars EC Tech's 8-Port/ 60W- 12A-- A Critical Review., 3 Dec. 2015
Again... Again, EC Tech has created another great product.

This is a 8-port/ 60W -- 12A portable desktop charger. But, this is a "Smart" Charger which is to say, the charger will automatically charge your device at the fastest rate appropriate for your device. So, one port may charge a cellphone at 1A, and later that day it may recharge a Samsung Note Pro at 2.1A.

This is a 3-piece set comes with:

The 8-Port Charger
AC Plug
Base and instructional booklet.

I have several places where this is essential, my office where I test out tech products, my computer station and my station at work.

A product like this is priceless because you can bring all of your current mobile devices and not have to worry about monitoring your phone to see how much time you'll have to wait for it to fully charge.

It's been my experience that even bigger devices like the Note Pro 12 can be fully recharged from empty to full in about 3.5- 4 hours. The Note 4 in about 45 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Set of Spare Cables., 1 Dec. 2015
If you don't have a lot of micro usb cables, this is the package to have.

I have cables everywhere except I can't find one when I actually need it. This set solves that problem (or, at least I think it will.)

This is a 6-cable set and what I really like about it is that it's not a cheap, random discarded cables. These are well made and is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Overall Great Pair of Wired Headphones., 30 Nov. 2015
There's a lot to say about these Syllable e1270's and the best thing is, is the sound reproduction.

I have many wired headphones each of the better ones offering a different takes on housing, from metal to wood to synthetic enclosure.

Now, the frequency is 100 Hz to 20 KHz-- I would have like for this to be the standard 20-20KHz for general music these are more than significant.

These wired speakers features:

* Inline microphone
* flat wired design ( to prevent curling)
* gold plated 3.5 mm plug- head
* neodymium magnets
* extra ear pieces

These are a great pair of wired headphones that perfect to carry in your bag when your don't want to wear a wireless or over-the-head headsets.

And, the price is a real plus at under 20 Euros.

4.0 out of 5 stars The G1S-- A Noticeable Improvement of the G1, but... A Critical Review, 13 Oct. 2015
Length:: 3:30 Mins

The “G1S” is, like it predecessor the “G1” a portable, mobile internet receiver.

It works like the popular “MiFi” that connects to any of the main US-based carriers by picking up and internet signal and offering either a secured line or it can be shared amongst upto five devices.

What makes this different from the MiFi devices is that GlocalMe has its own dedicated towers and it has built an international spectrum that each GlocalMe will connect to provided that the individual has enough credit for connection.

So, a G1S for instance is good for an internet connection in most countries around the world without having to look for a local phone company to provide a connection.

The rates for local GlocalMe connection is destination specific.

*** G1 vs. G1S ***

Earlier this year, I tested out the the G1 and found that under specific scenarios the G1 was a good buy despite the higher than average cost. This reasoning was based on traveling and convenience although the signal strength was below what you'd get even with smaller phone companies like Boost, Virgin or Simple.

The G1S, I'm happy to report, offers significantly higher dowload and upload speeds than the original G1. This despite the fact that it's only operating on a 3G spectrum.

As you can see in the video, I did several tests with the G1S and SpeedTest.net and the improved reception was good enough for me to receive a signal inside a building that the G1 couldn't. Also the the signal was strong enough to app updates and emails.

The elephant in the room is will this stream video. The answer is yes and no.

This is strong enough to stream bandwith-friendly YouTube and Yahoo news, but it won't stream Netflix without pausing or giving you an error message.

It used to be that this wouldn't be a big deal but streaming video such as Netflix or Hulu or HBO Now is one of the main features of any mobile or hybrid device.

There's a new G2 coming which supports the 4G spectrum, hopefully this will be the answer to my prayers.

Overall, the G1S is definitely a step in the right direction and is significantly better than the G1 and if the G2 is not available, this is a great option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Syllable "A6" Neckphones: A Critical Review., 12 Oct. 2015
I have LOVED all of Syllables headphones that have come out.

They are handsome, well built and the sound reproduction is quite good for a consumer grade/ budget headphone.

These "A6" continues the streak for me with one minor issue.

These are the first neckphones that I've gotten from Syllable. The design is ingenious because they literally clasp around your neck by two magnets on either side and these headphones have few buttons.

The issue that I have with these headphones is that it's not that loud. I love the fact that the sound reproduction is accurate. I also love that it's easy to wear and very practical but I would have love that they put in bigger drivers because shoving the earpieces in the ear canal doesn't stay.

So, they'd ether have to re-design the earpiece or install a bigger driver.

But, this is actually more comfortable than the recently released Samsung "Level"

On the whole, these are a very good headset and is recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memteq 5-in-1 Lens Set for Cellphones: A First Look, 20 Sept. 2015
Length:: 1:55 Mins

As another reviewer aptly put it, this is a very good "entry level" lens kit. I agree.

This is a great way to create to learn about photography (and, video to a lesser degree) by attaching the some basic lenses to your cellphone or certain tablets, if the design of the tablet allows for it.

This set comes with five (lenses); two of which (macro and wide angle) are attached together.

Included are:

+ Macro lens
+ 2x telephoto lens
+ wide angle lens
+ Fisheye lens
+ Circular Filter lens (CFL)

I have several Samsung products including the Note 4 and the Note 10.1, 12.2 and you can attach this lens kit to all three-- but not with any of the cases on.

Don't mistake the purpose of this set: this is not for professional-level use but it will give you many, many recording options. In fact, I like this lens set because you can learn a lot about photography.

And, with practice you can determine if digital photography or digital videography is right for you.

This is a small investment that'll pay for itself in the perfecting of your photographic skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars This will upgrade and lengthen the life of your laptop., 14 Sept. 2015
This is a great product, especially if your laptop's camera is low resolution.

I have a Asus Transformer T100 and the onboard camera is very basic.

I installed the driver from the micro CD and plugged the camera in usb port and the image from this camera is profoundly better.

This will upgrade and lengthen the life of your laptop.
