Typically when it comes to electronics we always know that the cost of making the product is far less than what we the consumer pays. It has been reported that Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre headphones cost only $14 to make!
LUXA2 has slowly been growing on customers as they have been coming out with some really great mobile products and accessories. Today we have one of their latest products, the Lavi-S, which is a Bluetooth headset that not only sounds great but has a feature you just will not find on other headsets. First off the headset features 40 mm drivers that will give you a balanced range of bass, midrange and treble tones. The really interesting thing about this headset is that it has three different play modes. So you have Bluetooth and wired (aux in) playback, which is typical on most Bluetooth headsets, but with the Lavi-S you also have external speakers on the earcups. This allows you to share the music you are listening to with your friends and the people around you. Will this 2-in-1 device replace the need for a separate Bluetooth headset and speaker? Read on as we find out.
I have been a fan of wireless headphones and headsets since the RF days. They are great because you are not actually connected to anything so you can get up and use the bathroom, go to the kitchen and make lunch or just lay down on the couch without having to lose the music you are listening to. With Bluetooth technology built into so many devices having wireless headsets is all but common now. Today we will be taking a look at the Xtreme H3 Bluetooth Headphones from Adesso. These headphones have an over the ear DJ style, pivoting earcups, 50mm Neodymium Magnetic Drivers and controls right on the left earcup. Let’s take a look!
Music is such an important part of many people’s lives, as we speak I am listening to an awesome playlist that helps me concentrate when writing reviews. When you have great music you want to share it with your friends. Well Wicked Audio knows this and they have come up with the Heist, which is a set of earbuds that have an in-line audio connection so that you can connect another set of headphones or earbuds to share your music. While this is a great idea these earbuds cost under $20 so we will have to see just how well they sound.
