The tagline for these headphones is, “Be Entertained While Showing Courtesy to Others”, or translated it means, “Yes Dad, I know you don’t want to listen to Mum and I gossiping but that doesn’t mean you can whack the volume up on the TV every time I come around.” More specifically they have been designed to allow you to hear the dialogue during a movie without the sound effects and moments of action waking up the entire house or aggravating your neighbours, they also allow you to watch something with colourful language without making the ears on young children bleed.
More and more people are turning back to the superior sound quality of vinyl, and with that, people are digging out their old record players only to find they don’t work anymore. Or if they are from the younger generation of music lovers, then they are looking to buy their first record player. The Lenco L-85 is a good place to start, choose from 4 colourful designs, black, grey, red and white, to bring a fun and contemporary way to play your vinyl collection.
The Libratone Q-Adapt In-Ear Headphones are available in four attractive colours: Stormy Black, Cloudy White, Elegant Nude and Rose Pink. They come with a matching braided cable, four-button remote access for play, pause, volume, calls and noise cancelling adjustment, three different sizes of ear buds and built-in microphone.
The MH40’s are first and foremost, absolute show stoppers, even if you never use them it is a pleasure just to ogle them and hold them. These over-ear headphones are made with heavy grain premium cowhide headband, exterior surface and ear cup insets, with a soft lambskin on the headband, interior, and ear pads. The lambskin ear pads feature memory foam inside them for extra comfort, making them very soft against your skin, they also mould to your ears and are breathable to help prevent hot ears. They are fully removable, so they can be cleaned or replaced.
At a glance, you may be mistaken in thinking this speaker is just like any other Bluetooth stereo. It certainly looks the same, however it comes with an added twist: a white noise feature to help lull you into a natural sleep. The included 4GB microSD has 10 pre-loaded nature sounds that rise and fall in volume to help your mind relax at night, plus you can also use the Bluetooth connection to stream your own favourite white noise track or music.
The Urbanears Plattan 2 Bluetooth are quite beautiful to behold - available in 5 stylish colours: True White, Tomato, Dark Grey, Black and Indigo (by far my favourite colour and the sample we received), this minimalist design isn’t just a pretty package but also comes with 30+ hours of wireless playtime from a single charge.
Etymotic have used their isolator technology to produce headphones that reduce outside noise and promote hearing safety, by blocking out background noise you don’t need to turn up your music to full to be able to hear it clearly. The Mk5’s reduces noise by 35 - 42 dB which make them ideal for wearing whilst at the gym or on the commute.
THEY’RE HERE!!! We have been waiting for these beauties to hit the shelves for a while and we weren’t disappointed, the Earin Headphones are one of the first completely wireless headphones to hit the market, along with Bragi’s Dash they are taking on the difficult task of being the FIRST. Earin was founded in 2013 in Sweden and wanted to create a fully wireless headphone without compromising on the sound quality and in three years they have delivered these smart little things.
