4.0 out of 5 stars VicTsing BT Sunglasses: A First Look, 27 July 2015
Length:: 2:07 Mins

I've seen this style of combination sunglasses and mp3 player.

The one I had last year was good but the sound needed improvement although I like the convenience of a 1-piece music player.

This new version which is also features polarized lenses. This is VERY convenient for places like here in Miami.

Although the sound is not high fidelity, for a budget grade headset, it definitely lives up to the price.

Besides this, the fit is very good and comfortable.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Extremely Comfortable Headphone with Rich, Vibrant Sound. Syllable "G600" Black: A Critical Review., 21 Jun. 2015
Length:: 3:38 Mins

This is a runaway 5-star dual analog and digital headphones.

***

This over-the-ear style headphones is similar to a more expensive one that came out two (2) years called, SOL Republic.

These "G600" has all of the best features of the other brand but at about ½ the price of the Sol's. This includes the flexible arms.

The sound reproduction on these are exceptional for a sub-$50 headphone and the only over-the-headphone that I'd compare (in quality) to a "prosumer" level of headphones.

These ear pieces are covered in protein-leather material and has a noise-isolating feature built in.

Because these are of a higher-quality than your typical budget/ "consumer-grade" audio headphone, I tested these with some of my MOFI cd's like Exodus and Catch A Fire as well as the Tom Tom Club's, Genius of Love cd.

Now, these are a dual-playback headphones. You can use them as a wired headphone. These 6.3mm male can be plugged into an cellphones's, tablet's, laptop or mp3 player or it can be plugged into a 3.5mm plug (female) and listen through a home theater system.

The set features:

* 40mm drivers
* Bluetooth 4.0
* 3.5mm aux input
* protein-leather earmuffs
* 2 built-in mic's
* supplied cables and user manual

Don't be mistaken about this: this, by price, is a "budget" category headphone but it is most definitely in a higher category quality headphone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluedio BS2 BT Speaker: A First Look,, 18 Jun. 2015
Length:: 9:15 Mins

This is a serious attempt by a private audio company to come up with a different twist on a standard wireless device. And, it largely succeeds.

***

The "BS-2" on the surface looks like your run-of-the-mill wireless, mini soundbar, but with the addition of the "3D" setting, you now have a few more options when you tie this feature in with a digital EQ that your phone or tablet may have.

Now, this speaker is not without a drawback. Without the "3D" or what some of us might say is simply a surround-sound output, the default setting sounds noticeably flat and that's with a 256+ kbps mp3 audio file.

But with this surround sound setting turned on, the sound is much richer and vibrant.

The BS2 features:

* 6-watts
* lossless transmission
* line-in
* 3D sound effect
* large programming keys
* bluetooth radio v 4.1 (100' of transmission)
* 3.5mm and micro usb cords

See video for different versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Phenomenal. RII Mini Keyboard ("I8"): A Critical Review,, 10 Jun. 2015
I see a lot of tech products but very few are really heads-above their competitors. In fact, most are the same product, made in the same factory overseas. But, this product is different and it's great.

The "I8" Mini Keyboard for, primarily, mobile devices is absolutely fantastic.

This device works as a wireless (Bluetooth) keyboard. It can work on the Windows, Mac and Chrome OS', but that's not practical because you'd use a full keyboard for your desktop and a laptop has a keyboard built in.

Where a device like this really shines is on your tablet and smartphones.

Believe it or not, the most difficult brand to pair to Bluetooth devices, in my experience, is Samsung; the easiest is HTC.

I don't see many "mini" keyboards, I have one from 3 years ago from Anker and it's about half the size of the I8, and to be honest, I didn't see how anyone with an average size hand could use such small keys.

I like that this keyboard is significantly bigger yet portable enough to carry anywhere.

It measures:

5 ¾" x 3 5/8" x ¾" and weighs 3.7 oz.

It features:
* Full Qwerty keyboard
* 0-9 numeric pad
* Left "mouse" key
* Right "mouse" key
* Directional keys
* Audio keys for Volume, Play/Plause, Forward, Back, Mute
* Magnifying key
and...
* Touchpad

This is simply phenomenal.

On my Samsung Galaxy Note tablet and my Galaxy Note 3 phablet--in the video clips you'll see how easy it is to negotiate emails, audio files and games.

If you carry around a smartphone (without a keyboard) and especially a tablet, this portable, inexpensive mini keyboard would make a great edition to your electronics gear.

I love this.

5 big, big stars.

This is a simple solution to keeping a "Lightning" cable handy. The plug is perfect especially if you carry around any of the current/ newly re-designed Apple products with a Lightning port.

Elegantly designed and convenient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aventree Powerhouse Desktop Charging Station, 7 Jun. 2015
Length:: 0:16 Mins

I have needed a all-in-one solution to the different devices that I have near my nightstand and I always end up charging *this* device over here and *that* device over there. It's always a hassle locating the different devices in different areas.

I was hoping that this device, the "Powerhouse" would solve this.

This is a modified multi-port usb charge station with a housing unit built around it to accommodate tablets, phones and perhaps other small devices.

This device measures:
6"x 4.5"x 2"

On the top, there are Leggo-style blocks that are used as walls to place the device between two. The issue with this product is simple-- the space between these "walls" is VERY narrow.

I own several tablets and a couple of smartphones and the only way to fully utilize this is for you to remove any covering over the tablets and/or cellphones. In the accompanying slideshow, you can see stuffing two tablets (with very thin covers) warps the placement.

If it were just 1/4 to 1/2 broader, this would be perfect.

And, I'd also make the usb ports on the outside and not underneath.


Bheema Eachine H1 2.4GHz Mini RC UFO Quadcopter
Bheema Eachine H1 2.4GHz Mini RC UFO Quadcopter

4.0 out of 5 stars Eachine "H1" A First Look and Critical Review, 30 May 2015
Length:: 1:57 Mins

Eachine was nice enough to send some review models for testing.

The two models that I tested over the course of several weeks is the "H1" and the "3D X4" and the short answer is that Eachine is better when they make their higher-end models.

(It's also important to note that the box that this copter comes in says "H7" on the front and "H1" on the back. And, the instruction book has a totally different name than the one on the box or on the copter, itself. This is careless and should be corrected.)

***

The "H1" is a basic remote controlled helicopter that's any child or any adult who's young-at-heart will love.

This copter features:

* 4 channel/ 6-Axis/ Quad-copter
* Runs on a 2.4 GHz frequency
* Two (2) guard/ protection rail systems

The copter is marketed to age 14 and up. I would suggest that a "mature" 14 but most likely 16+ because there is a learning curve.

This model, as well as the "3D X4" is not a toy in the traditional sense. When I think of toy, it's essentially a device that provides enjoyment or for distraction and their shelf life is very short.

This is a hobbyist device.

The kit also comes with an instruction manual. But, to be honest, I didn't find the explanation as clear as it should be.

That is to say, there's a learning curve here because you have two levers that controls the elevation and descent. The other is a directional handle.

In between there is the need to control the speed, which, in my case, was the biggest obstacle.

*** Testing ***

First, the copter has to be fully charged. Then remote automatically connects the copter.

When you first get the connection going, if you've never had any experience with an R/C device, it goes off in any direction VERY fast.

Often when it moves, I found that it flips and the blades would easily come off. This was to me both a problem and a concern when thinking about the cost of replacement.

The blades are understandably very small. But, the blades are not really being held tightly by the body and I found myself picking up random blades on the first day.

The set comes with and is recommended that the protection guards be placed on the copter before you actually try to test it out.

The top guard is a lot more difficult to put on than the side blades.

I guess it's the combination of the small copter and the smaller pieces that can easily get lost if the copter crashes in an area outside.

This copter, more than the other, really requires a lot of time and effort and trial and error in order to master this device.

But, all in all, it's a good product.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Bass-Lovers Headphone. A Critical Review., 24 May 2015
The “JY-022” (marketed here as "Tauren BSH 901") is a good, consumer-grade over-the-ear headphones for those who love bass-heavy music.

One of the first things I noticed about these is how light these are on my ears.

Make no mistake, these are headphones have a filter that emphasize frequencies at the lower levels. This is great if you’re into rap, certain strands of heavy metal or club music. It becomes problematic if you like a variety of music especially classical or vocals when the timbers of one’s voice or string instruments gets blurred in the transmission.

But, that not really a big deal since many people, including myself, like to hear their songs with an emphasis on bass.

There are headphones which emphasize treble or clarity at the midrange or even “flat range” headphones. I think it’s good to have a variety of headphones based on how one’s feeling at a certain time.

As far as these are concerned, these are a branded model that will probably be sold by competitors under a different name, but these are comfortable, you have a mike attached to the right ear to answer phone calls and you have roughly about 4.5 hours of continuous playback or a week of standby without needing to recharge.

The neat design also allows you to advance or backtrack by turning the same phone knob up or down. I like this feature most out of everything,

And, because it’s a bluetooth headset, you can pair this with your computer and listen to a movie that’s playing on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube or even a television station’s homepage.

The only slight drawback is that dance music vocals sounds a bit muffled as it preference for bass instruments trumps vocals—Love Hangover, for example suffers a bit from this prejudice.

On the whole, this consumer-grade headphones is a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars QuickSnap Pro Self-Portrait: A First Look,, 9 May 2015
Length:: 1:55 Mins

I see a lot of "selfie sticks" or monopod.

The QuickSnap is different than a lot of others because a new design that I've haven't seen before.

First, the handle on the QuickSnap has a push knob locking system, carabiner self-locking system built into the handle.

It also features a nice, extended foam handle, handle strap and a separate bluetooth remote control.

Most of the selfie sticks that I've reviewed have a cast iron handle which is sturdy enough to not only be able to hold a cell phone but a DLSR if the pole has a camera mount.

This arm is just as strong but it's actually lighter to carry around. This aluminum monopod can rotate 270-degrees.

Now, the current bluetooth standard (2015) is version 4.1, this monopod is vers. 3 which is essentially up to 50'feet away. So, if you're going to use this monopod with an optional stand, your allowance is good enough to get good pictures if you use the remote. Anything beyond 50' essentially defeats the purpose of taking pictures or video without someone else's assistance.

About the remote. The remote comes with two (2) watch batteries. It's unusual to see these types of batteries but the good of it, is that they last for long, long periods of time. You won't need to replace these as often as AA or even AAA batteries.

***
If there's one piece of constructive criticism I'd like to level is that I wish there's some way to attach this circular bluetooth remote to the monopod so that you don't misplace it.

This is a VERY well made device and is in my top 3 overall selfie sticks to own.

Please see video for demonstration.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ugly Duckling With Great Performance. Headphone- Jabees BS Sport, 4 May 2015
Length:: 1:22 Mins

I reviewed 5 sports headphones simultaneously and of the 5 this one and another are absolutely exceptional in terms of fit, performance and value.

The Jabees "BS Sports" is a functional sports headphone. You'll buy this headset because it feels good when you wear it. Or, you'd buy this because of the intense sounds that the internal speakers produce.

But, it'll be after you overlook how unattractive it is to look at.

This is not a pretty headphone, but it is a great performing headset.

The features are:

+ The "BS Sport" headphone
+ earplugs (additional)
+ earhooks (additional)
+ Quickstart guide and warranty
+ Bluetooth 4.0
+ Sweat resistant
+ Dual microphones
+ NFC
+ Apt X for audio streaming

I've had this for a couple of weeks and I still can't wrap my head around the look of these--it really is uninviting. I've had to force myself to put them on and try them out.

But once I tried them on and went through the my playlist and the sound reproduction is quite impressive but equally impressive is the comfort of these headphone: they stay fit.

These headphone will stay fit on your ears when you're in the gym or if you're out cycling.

I love the mechanics in these and if you need a pair of sports headphones for the gym that fit well and sounds great--these Jabees "BS Sports" comes with my highest recommendation.
