mk5 Isolator Earphones

The mk5 Isolator Earphones ($69.99) by Etymotic Research are a solid purchase for anyone that wants to dip their toe into audiophile gear without breaking the bank. These earbuds are designed in a way to firmly fit in one’s ears, decreasing the tendency for the buds to fall out the second that they are jostled or when the wearer decides to start any sort of fitness-based activity. For those that are concerned about the overall cleanliness of the mk5s, they can easily be wiped down and restored to a factory sort of immaculateness. Continue reading “mk5 Isolator Earphones”

Stealth 600 (Turtle Beach)

The Stealth 600 headphones by Turtle Beach are a must-have for anyone that is looking for a middle-price head set that has a good build quality and a solid set of features. The design of the head set keeps one’s head comfortable with a big, thick band and comfortable ear cups. The ear cups are covered with a mesh to wick away perspiration. The positionable mic is tiny to hide away when its is not needed, but is able to accurately reproduce one’s voice even in its smaller-than-normal state.The wireless aspect of these headphones makes it easy to find a comfortable position further away from one’s Xbox One or Windows PC (either through the Xbox Wireless Adapter or through the OS).

HD3 Wireless Speakers / Audioengine

The pair of speakers that we had in service for reviewing at NeuFutur Magazine had not survived the move from Ohio, so we had to search out a pair that were at least as good as the previous pair. We were fortunate in that we were in contact with Audioengine, who provided us with a pair of the HD3 Wireless Speakers. We’ve had a month to check them out through a wide variety of tests, video games, CDs, and anything else that you can throw at them. The price point for the speakers ($399) may take one back that is used to purchasing cheap speakers on the regular, but the old adage is true here – you really do get what you pay for.

Vie Vaporizer

It’s been a while since we have had the chance to take a good, look analysis of a vaporizer. We sat down and gave the new Vie Vaporizer a spin and are pleased to report that it blends together a good amount of functions with a small price tag. The product has a real-time monitor that is set up to properly modify the temperature in the chamber, making sure that vapor – not smoke – is the only thing that one will receive when they take a drag from the device. There is nothing in the way of popcorn flavors that will occur when one uses the Vie, no matter how dry or damp the stuff that one puts in the product may ultimately be. There is a strong battery in the Vie, as well; we were able to go through a number of sessions before we had to place it back on the hook for a few hours.  Continue reading “Vie Vaporizer”

Under Armour Sport Wireless Heart Rate headphones a good buy

Over the course of the last month or so, we have experienced the UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate headphones by JBL. The overall fit of the earphones is provided through a set of sized earpads, while the over-ear bar ensures that one will not lose the headphones during a particularly intense workout.The headphones pair easily with Bluetooth and provide both playback and a microphone function for those that may be taking calls. For those with the UA Band, the Sport Wirelesses connect and share data. Those that purchase these headphones will be able to access the MapMyRun app for a year, free. The major draw of these headphones over those on the market is the ability to be updated audibly about one’s heart rate. When I use the treadmill, I have to typically change my gait to put my hands on the heart rate sensors; with the Sport Wireless Heart Rate headphones I can keep the same speed and intensity from my first step until the conclusion of my workout. Continue reading “Under Armour Sport Wireless Heart Rate headphones a good buy”

Byron BT Wireless Headphones (Beyerdynamic)

Beyerdynamic’s Byron BT Wireless Headphones are quite possibly the best sub-$100 wireless earbuds we’ve reviewed at NeuFutur. While small in size, the Byron BT Wireless Headphones provide a full sound that equally well capture gaming, news, and music beats with the greatest of ease. Continue reading “Byron BT Wireless Headphones (Beyerdynamic)”

Creative Iroar Go Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker

The Iroar Go Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker from Creative is a perfect purchase for the summer months. It will yield tremendous sound that is surprisingly loud for the a device size of the Iroar Go. The speakers provide great highs and lows, ensuring that one can bounce through rap, rock, and even podcasts without the sound seeming distorted or otherwise “off”. This is largely done through the “Roar” button which provides an equalization effect that is a bit more customized than factory settings. The speaker can be placed in one of two distinct configurations, allowing for a wider radius or a more in-your-face sort of sound.  Continue reading “Creative Iroar Go Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker”

HyperX Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse

The HyperX Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse is a perfect addition to a gamer’s rig, especially for those that like customization with their products. This customization comes in a variety of DPI settings and a six-button setup. The light weight of the Pulsefire along with its ergonomic design makes it something that blends together rapid movements with finesse. There is a fair amount of clearance for the infrared sensor, making it better able to deal with smaller amounts of detritus. The braided cord of the Pulsefire ensures that one will not need to fuss with the mouse cord each time it becomes knotted. The company’s use of Omron switches provide a solid feel for the mouse, while the skates (small flat patches on the bottom of the mouse) are sufficiently large to decrease the overall friction of the mouse on one’s mousepad. Continue reading “HyperX Pulsefire FPS Gaming Mouse”

Sound BlasterX Kratos S3, the perfect intro speakers

This 2.1 set up is the perfect set of speakers for anyone that is looking to create a computer build or those that are looking to move past headphones and into a set that will accurately reproduce a wide variety of media, be it bass-heavy rap, crystal-clear dialogue, or a bevy of noises generated by a computer game. Continue reading “Sound BlasterX Kratos S3, the perfect intro speakers”

The Goze cellphone case takes damage in stride

The Goze cellphone case is a great bang for one’s buck; the device comes in a array of configurations. We were lucky enough to receive their Theater version which contains an additional flap of material to allow one to prop up their device should they wish to watch a movie or video. This is perhaps the best way to placate a child in a busy public place (such as meetings, meals at restaurants). The device encases our Samsung easily with large enough in the way of openings to plug-in a set of headphones, no matter how the end has been designed.
