Erato Apollo 7 Earphones

Of course you have heard how Apple revolutionized wireless audio listening with its debut of Airpods and the controversial missing headphone jack. But before that, there’s already a compact wireless headphone that’s been around the market — Erato’s Apollo 7. It’s the industry’s first waterproof, truly wireless headphones and the highest quality true wireless earbuds out on the market.

In fact, the earphones have received notable reviews from tech sites like CNET and Digital Trends, gaining remarks such as being the “first truly wireless headphones that work well and delivers decent sound”. Here are more reasons why you might want to own a pair:

Perfect synchronization between left and right channels

Award-winning design

Reviews revealed that the earbuds are extremently convenient to use. Its construction was meticulously designed that it has won the 2015 Red Dot Homourable Mention Award. The earphones also come in different sophisticated colors including Silver, Grey, Gold, and Rose Gold.

A Magnetic Levitation Turntable For The Ultimate In Vibration Dampening

mag-lev-1

The MAG-LEV Audio looks pretty badass. It’s a turntable with a magnetically levitating platter, and that alone should be the main selling point. The platter is smoothly controlled through a patented drive system that can easily switch between 33.3-rpm and 45-rpm with just a turn of a button. When you turn it off, the platter gently lowers back down onto a set of legs that pops up upon shutdown. There’s even an Uninterrupted Power Supply that will perform a smooth shutdown procedure in case of power loss, protecting your precious records and your expensive turntable as well. And we say expensive because of course the MAG-LEV Audio isn’t cheap: it’s an $880 pledge to get your own, with shipping almost a year away in September 2017.

Screw You Apple, The Daptr Case Puts The Audio Jack Back Where It Belongs

daptr-iphone-7-case-with-3-5mm-audio-port-featured-image-672x372

Apple, as everyone knows, “courageously” ditched the audio jack in the latest incarnation of the phone that turned the company into the behemoth it is today. That made the purchase of the iPhone 7/7 Plus somewhat of a dilemma for people who like to listen to music while their phone is charging; would it be worth it, knowing you have to also upgrade your headphones or use an unsightly adaptor? Well, the Daptr case attempts to solve this issue by giving you the audio jack back. It does this by lengthening the phone somewhat and cramming it down there along with a Lightning port, so you can keep using the phone the way you want. Oh, and a second Lightning port for some reason. You’ll add just 3mm of thickness, but a hefty 20mm of length to an already long-ish phone. It’s available in December for $49.

The Best Home Audio Systems

onkyo-1

Whether you have a lot or a little to spend, so many options in the home audio market makes it tough to choose the right system; especially for the consumer who isn’t too familiar with the terms and gimmicks manufacturers throw at them. One of the best sites to check out if you’re looking for a wireless home audio system is dewired.co.uk. They have a range of reviews on wireless and bluetooth products including wireless surround sound systems.

Chrome Cast –
Believe it or not the little device you can stream TV shows and movies with is also a great home audio system. Complete surround sound, ultra affordable, exceptional design and even far more superior sound quality. The ability to control in any room of the home, voice commands, and great features allowing you to listen to what you want in any room of the home, at any time, on command, is just the beginning of what the very low priced device offers.

Onkyo TX NR646 –
The ultra rich feature receiver providers users the ability to stream, listen to CD, sound from TV, your iPod or other streaming devices. Control the device with the touch of a button, 8 HDMI ports, Sonic Atmos, and additional sound control features, will give users the ability to truly control what they listen to and how they listen to it.

Yamaha YAS – 203 –
A spacious sounding bar gives you far more control. Basically the compact device lets you listen from any room, and in far greater volume (space wise) than you might think it capable of. More dynamic, sounds bigger, sounds spacious and it will truly fill any room when listening to a live concert or your favourite jams on your iPod around the clock.

These are a few options to consider for home audio systems. Affordable, compact, well known brand recognition, and affordability in one package, make these some hot items to consider in home audio.

The Wearable Bass Pack Lets You Feel The Bass, Without Busting Your Eardrums

wearable-bass-system

Are you into bass? Like, really into it? Then you’re probably the kind of guy who has a pair of dual 16-inch woofers in his car, shaking the ground around you as you drive. That’s alright, we feel ya, but you know, you don’t have to destroy your eardrums and wake the entire neighbourhood to get the same feeling. The Subpac is a backpack that thumps the bass right into your chest, bypassing your ears altogether. The company is calling it “patent-pending tactile audio technology”, and the idea is to channel all frequencies between 5Hz and 125Hz to the backpack, allowing your ears to focus on higher frequency sounds while the bass is fed straight into your chest. The battery will last 8 hours, and can be connected through a standard 3.5mm audio jack or through Bluetooth streaming. It’s $399.
