Mono-Live Gadget Review: Powerbeats3 Wireless Headphones


Powerbeats3
The consumer electronics manufacturers as well as tech firms are working aggressively to build such device which better capabilities and fewer cables when it comes to putting music in the ear. So we got a slew of wireless or Bluetooth headphones coming up each week from variety of labels in amazing range of colors, size and dynamics. All of them share some characteristic feature which includes better sound quality, compact design and smaller batteries which can last longer. But it is Beats which takes all the competition head on with its most authentic and enhanced Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones.

Designed to impress

Powerbeats3 comes with a unique giant adjustable hooks present at both sides which effectively wraps over the ear. This helps in giving a table and comfortable feel to the users. In short users can wear Powerbeats3 wireless headphone for a longer period of time without feeling pain or heaviness on the ears. Secondly Beats has worked efficiently non the inline remote and microphones present in both the buds which are able to pick up calls and can communicate with smartphone’s AI with ease and grace.

Most of the users find it difficult to pair their wireless headphones with Apple devices. In order to overcome this issue Beats has include the W1 chip which allows users to pair with Apple devices in an instant without much hassle. It has a huge battery backup of 12 hours which means users will have to charge just once or twice a week. Beats products are known for bigs and lows and so is true for Powerbeats3 and it doesn’t mean that the sound output is awful rather it has the Beats touch in it.

Ease of use and simple design coupled with amazing sound quality

The best thing about Powerbeats3 is that it can be paired fairly easily than any other available wireless device. Users are simply required to press the button on earphone and keep it closer to the device they wish to pair it with. Powerbeats3 was paired with a huge a number of devices where it acted like an instinct and connected within a relatively short time without any hassles. The play/ pause button works amazingly fine with this wireless earphone as it is able to pick up input without fail.

Sound quality output is the best part of the Powerbeat3 as it offers a refreshingly awesome and sublime experience. It brings the one-of a kind true sound isolation feature which drown all the sound you in a remarkable fashion. The only downside found in this Powerbeats3 wireless gadget is that it charges with MicroUSB when whole the world has moved onto USB-C and Lightning ports.

Powerbeats3 comes at a huge price tag of $199 which is the case with all the offerings from Beats. If you are willing to shell such an amount then you will be greeted with amazingly sound quality, sublime design or else you can go with other offerings available in the market.

Mono-Live Gadget Review:Skybuds Wireless Earbuds

SkyBuds
Skybuds is the new wireless earbuds and is made by and marketed by the Alpha Audiotronics Company. The new Skybuds is very unique in design and the music quality is awesome compared with its competitors. The Skybuds earbuds is shipped with a carrying case which is quite big and very bulky to carry it everywhere.

This carrying case can be fitted at the back of your phone and it doesn’t fall of and this case is used for charging the Skybuds earbuds. This carrying case comes as the first disadvantage of the earbuds as this is fitted in the back of the phone and thus making the phone too bulky to be carried and this puts a question mark on whether Skybud is a pocket friendly earbud.

The pricing of the products is fixed at $250 which is really an high price, whereas you can get some more featured or an premium earbuds like Apple or Bragi under $200. Now let’s talk about the sound quality, if you are wearing a wireless earbud what would you feel and what are the features it has! This skybuds is very comfortable when wearing it at first but it feels very uncomfortable while wearing in a long stretch.

The sound quality is quite good compared to its competitors products in the same price range they have a good bass and has a smooth way inside our ears and this earphones does not sound flat. This skybud creates clear and awesome songs and the bass in songs is quite good. The skybud does digital processing which is done by the small sized earbuds which is responsible for giving high quality song and gives us a good feel when hearing an song if you do not want this feature you can turn it off in the Skybuds app and turning this feature off can increase its charge by one hour more.

When the wireless earbuds were introduced the main was to make an active connection between the device and the earbuds and thus pushing the sound quality to the last. Well now we have come a long way of connecting two or more devices and keeping the connection active thus now the sound quality is very important for us now.

The Skybuds is made up entirely plastic type material but it still looks quite simple shiny and smooth in hands and it does not fall of easily. The slim and sleek design is an plus point for this earbuds which is comfortable while wearing and its design prevents it from falling of quickly.

PROS: 

  1.  This Skybuds earphone has excellent sound 
  2.  Though the charging case is big still its quite good for the earbuds. 
  3.  This Skybuds earphone is very light because of its built quality. 
  4.  Overall the earbud is good and still it has to improve its battery life. 

CONS: 


  1.  The Bluetooth drops out quite often and disconnects and interrupts your audio. 
  2.  The Skybuds earbuds is very uncomfortable while wearing for a long stretch of time. 
  3.  The built quality is cheap although it looks like a premium earbud. 
  4.  Price of the earbud is very expensive compared to its competitors.

Headphones: a deluge of news! - V

Intra wireless
Model-ear Triva Tap proposed by Koss since last spring, is a priori the first of its kind to be free of wire and connect via WiFi to different kinds of music sources. While some might consider this a bit of "cheating" because they largely beyond the ear canal (and the ear) compared to other headphones in this category. But pending a future and hypothetical miniaturization, they remain relatively discrete, light and, of course, without headband. The contract is completed. Their interest is also to be connected to all types of readers or audio-video equipment, even if they do not have Wifi, through a small box "bridge" to connect the audio output a Smartphone, a MP3 player, radio, TV, etc.. Priced 400 euros!

Starck Parrot offers

Parrot continues its diversification in all directions and this time is associated with Philippe Starck to design the design of ZIK, a wireless headset (Bluetooth) to look very distinctive.

Sold on various online shops at a price of approximately 350 euros.

Headphones: a deluge of news! - I

Available in France since mid-July, DenonAH NCW500-range Cruiser Globe probably delights music lovers and world travelers. The supra-aural headphones finish relatively simple and rather upscale (available in black or aluminum / brown) includes a set of functions and elements which, without being revolutionary, is very much in tune with the times. With 400 mm headphones, it incorporates an active system to reduce noise outside, amplifier, microphone, control buttons and a volume control wheel to drive a Smartphone which can be connected with wireless (Bluetooth 3.0). On the software side, the manufacturer also offers a free application for Smartphone Travel Denon IOS or Android. Comes with a battery of accessories, including a carrying pouch leather, priced at 500 euros.



A decoration at the head of customer

Colorware, the American specialist "customization-coloring" of multimedia equipment (mobile phones, computers, game consoles, iPod, Segway ...) also offers a dedicated service for headphones: Beats By Dr. Dre range, Bose QuietConfort 15 , Sol Republic Tracks, SkullCandy Mix Master, to name a few. Originally, it was possible for you to send your own equipment, after being "treated", you had returned to begin his new life under new colors. This option is no longer offered by the company (too many defective materials and counterfeiting ...) it is now possible after using the web application for colors that control one or more new parts, that 'you have to mount it yourself, or buy the new helmet. For example, it will cost about 430 euros for a Bose QuietConfort 15 plus service colorization.

The other U.S. based company also offers customization of headphones. The offer, however OrigAudiodiffère substantially from that proposed by ColorWare insofar as it is an original helmet model (Designears) and allows customization based on a black and white helmet, of apply a photo, text, texture ... on the headphones and the headband. 55 euros.
