Incredible sound from Hobest Bluetooth Headphones.

Standard

Hobest headphones 2

At first glance, this product really impressed me. We go through a lot of Bluetooth headphones in our home, too. I love the thick and sturdy storage case this product came in. The zipper functions perfectly, and it easily holds the headphones and charging, Micro USB cord, when not in use. The cord is a longer one, which I am really appreciating. They have really shortened many charging cords nowadays, and that is really starting to annoy me. We use charging stations a lot, and you can’t charge everything in one area, if all the cords are short. In your package, you do get the headphones, the charging Micro USB cord, directions, the storage case, and 2 extra pairs of silicone ear buds in different sizes. These headphones are very sturdy in hand. The two arms that unfold, do so well. No weakness in the joints noted at all. I love, love, love the splash of celery green color on the ends of the black headphones. It really gives this set a sporty look. I charged mine immediately upon arriving. The charging port is on the underside, of the right arm. All of the controls for the headphones are in this location as well. (They do, however, have other color options available.)

On the right arm, you will find an actual on/off button, a + button, a – button, and a telephone button. On each arm, there is a small button that retracts the earbuds. This is the style where you pull the earbud out of the arm, to your desired length. I can see pushing that button by accident, so be careful. It is the first button, on the top of the right arm. If you remember that, you can avoid retracting your earbud, lol. The + and – buttons are on the side of the right arm, which will help you avoid that too. There is no LED light when charging. When you turn on the headset, it vibrates, and then you can see the blue/red LED lights. They are located at the on/off switch.

I have a Note 5, and I did not have any issues pairing with this headset. It comes up as SX-990 to pair. No code was needed. Make sure you pull out extra wire when fitting the headphones on, Otherwise the weight of the headset, when you move around, will pull the earbuds out of your ears. Once they are fit, they stay in pretty well. I bopped around, and they stayed put. The sound quality is awesome. I listened to one song with a lot of ranges, and a lot of bass, and it sounded great! The song was Cold by Maroon 5. I was able to enjoy music from Rap to Boccelli. I like all kinds of music, and I am really enjoying this headset. It has a mic for calls as well. Something my husband has to have. He is always on the road for work, and needs to have the ability to take calls at all hours. Since there is a separate button for calls, it really makes calls easy. This set has a high sensitivity microphone, which has helped keep his calls clear. It also has CVC 6.0 Noise Cancellation technology. I can sit and listen to music in the living room with the TV on, and my son playing games on his laptop, and just hear the music. So, I think it works really well. You might want to not listen to music while driving because of this though, lol.

Now, when listening to music, you control the functions with the + and – buttons. To increase or decrease volume, you need to press and hold the coordinating buttons. To restart a song, or go through the playlist, you need to just press, not hold and press, the + and – buttons. So, this is like most headphones, and easy to do.

These headphones will connect to IOS and Android. It has Bluetooth 4.1 technology in it. This helps with longer battery time, from what I read. I haven’t tested the standby hours, but it is stated to have this battery life: “supports 18 hours talking time, 16 hours music playback time, and more than 300 hours standby time.” We never have just talk, with no music either, lol. Now, these headphones do talk to you which I like. For example, when you turn the headset on or off, it says things like, “Power Off”.

Hobest headphones 5

My husband has officially taken off with these headphones, lol. He also has a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phone. He, like myself, has had no trouble with connecting to these headphones. The calls are nice and clear, both on and off Wi-Fi calling. The double tap of the mfb, or telephone button, does indeed bring up the last number called. When a call comes in it does state, Incoming Call, and then spells out the number. We have been able to get through a day of use on one charge, too. The calling feature where it tells you in the incoming number, is very valuable if you are driving. It gives you the ability to know who’s calling without looking at your phone. Now, when a call is coming in, and you do not walk to accept the call, you just need to double tap the mfb button; that’s it!

Hobest headphones 6

Overall, these are comfortable to wear. The sound has been great, the calls clear, and easy to do. We both have been appreciating the storage case. My husband likes these so much, he has claimed permanent ownership of them, lol.

Your third eye on the road. – Ivations’ Dash Cam

Standard

We have purchased and reviewed quite a handful or dash cams over the past couple of years. So, we are not new to them. In today’s litigious society, and reckless drivers, I agree with the need for owning one. You really can’t go wrong. This camera has great specs. It is a 1080p camera, and it really does produce clear video. It picks up audio pretty clearly as well. You can use it as a camera when needed in an emergency, and it has G-sensor. So, in an accident, or an instant when the car experiences a sudden jarring, it will automatically record and save, without looping over, the entire incident. Otherwise, the camera stops the video around every 3 minutes, and starts a new one. You also won’t be able to overwrite the video, which would ruin the evidence.

(I took these photos with the Dash Cam)

When I went through my videos, they averaged 3 minutes and 4 seconds a piece. This has been the easiest dash cam I’ve had in regard to setting the date and time on. Most others I’ve had to attach them to my computer to do it, or it was an act of Congress on the cam itself, lol. This one walks you through the date, the first time you turn it on.  If you press the settings button, you can set the exact time on it. This unit comes on automatically when you start your car. Now, if you plug it in after your car is running, you need to manually start it, or just turn your car of and restart it. When you turn your car off, it will turn off. This unit comes with a 32gb Class 10 micro SD card with the adapter so it can be plugged into your laptop. You need a minimum of a class 10 to get good video quality, so I was happy to see this. You can get a solid day of all day driving on a 32gb. If you like to save your videos, on a trip, I would bring back up micro SD cards. A 32gb card is the largest it accepts. The video is very clear. This unit saves somewhat of a charge. Enough to be able to view your videos from the unit, and to use it as a camera. In an accident, you can then take it out of the car to take still photos if you want to. It has an old fashioned style charging port. I always save my old cords, so I am able to charge it in home. Otherwise it only comes with a 12V charging cord. They do include two mounting plates, so you can take it from your car to your spouses, without taking the mounting bracket out. It’s a suction cup style, and it stays pretty well on your window. The cord is very long, so you could mount it in your rear view window. This would only be beneficial if your state has front license plates, in my opinion.

Overall, this unit is reliable for recording. It’s easy to take photos with, with only a touch of the screen. The menu is easy to operate. The video and voice recording is clear, very clear. The only bad, which is a negative to me, is that the Wi-Fi is not usable on this unit. The app is DashCam Remote, and it is free form the Playstore. I have a Galaxy Note 5. It won’t open on my phone. You need to have an old phone or tablet to get it to open, from what I have researched, and I have researched a lot! We have an older tablet. I can get the app to open, but it would never, ever connect to the Wi-Fi. They have updated the app after my first initial attempt, but I am still having the same problems. I am happy to see that they are taking the feedback seriously, and are working on the issue. That gives me a lot of faith in it.  Does not being able to use the Wi-Fi affect the camera, nope. But, it is definitely still the best dash cam I have tested, to date!

Pretty in color. – JNG Directs’ PINK – 30 oz. Splash & Spill Resistant Sliding Closure Straw Friendly Replacement Lid.

Standard

 

I have done many blogs on the 30oz Stainless Tumbler trend and competition. We, as a family, have even converted to them, and use them solely, for the most part. Now, we can add a splash of color to our original stainless tumblers, without having to, unnecessarily, ordering a new colored tumbler. Which, by the way, can be pricey. We can add a splash of color, and change out our cups, by just changing out the lid. I ordered their vibrant pink colored lid, but they do have it available in 7 colors in all. The colors available are all vibrant and deep, translucent colors: Purple, Light Purple, Pink, Green, Orange, Red, Blue. The lid has the sliding cover that completely covers up the drinking spout, for a splash free walk around town, or just to your vehicle. It holds really well too. If your cup dumps over, liquid will leak through the sliding port cover. It is not fully leak proof. There is a wide, and thick silicone ring that creates a really tight seal in the 30oz Yeti tumbler, as well as some of the competitors. I obviously only have a few competitors to test it on. I have one of the competitors that, unfortunately, did not make their opening dimension the same. So, this will not fit with a cup like that. This lid is made out of BPA free plastic. Which, really doesn’t matter, since your drink does not rest in it. It is dishwasher safe, although I only hand wash mine, like everything else. I love how well packaged it comes too. It is mailed in a regular box, not mail order shrink wrap packaging, lol. So, it is definitely a gift worthy item, and the perfect stocking stuffer with the holidays approaching. You can even order colors for the holidays, like orange for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Red or Green for Christmas, and on and on. I am so happy with this lids’ quality. I am comfortable recommending it.

Perfect for on the go. – RobinTech’s Premium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones.

Standard

My guys live with their headphones on. They are commercial electricians, and need to be available by phone at all times, but have to keep their hands free to work, obviously. And, not just work, but while driving too. Wireless, Bluetooth headphones are an essential for them. They also need to be durable to put up with the wear and tear they give them. This set from RobinTech is pretty nice. It arrives nicely packaged. Not the cheaper mail order packaging, used a lot, nowadays. In you package you will get 1 headphones, 1 micro USB charging cable, 1 instruction pamphlet, 1 storage case, 2 pairs of extra silicone ear buds (different sizes), and a little plastic clip to keep your wires gathered. They suggest charging them in full before use. A full charge from empty only takes about 1 ½ hours. There is a tiny red LED light showing it’s charging, and this light turns blue, when the earphones are fully charged. I love not having to guess; simple pleasures. The internal battery is an 85mAh battery. It may seem small, but for headphones, it’s not too shabby at all. You will actually get about 6 to 8 hours of play/talk time. The louder you play your music, the less battery time. The more you do on it, also cuts into battery time as well. If you have a week charger, it may take longer to charge. The ear buds are labeled R and L, on the ends. All of the controls, including the charging port are located on the right ear. On the side of the right ear, you will see their logo. This is actually the power/multipurpose button. Press and hold to turn on and pair. It will flash red/blue, and comes up Robintech to pair. It paired immediately with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phone. The sound quality is fantastic, and their CVC 6.0 Noise cancellation technology, coupled with how well thee ear buds sit in your ear, really work. My husband was trying to talk to me, while sitting right next to me, and I was clueless, lol. They have a really high water proof rating, IPX7, which means you can shower with them. Most headphones have an IPX6 rating, so this one has upped the game. My husband sweats like it’s raining when he’s working out, and working hard, lol. He has ruined many a headphone due to this. So, we shall see how long these last with him. These have the normal 10m/33ft distance from the Bluetooth deice, rating. That is same room. If you go behind a wall or door, it will drop the signal. Now, on top of the bar, on the R earphone, you will see a + and – buttons. You short press to lower, or heighten the volume, and long press to move forward or restart your song. You can also pair two devices at once, which is pretty cool. It does work with both Android and IOS systems. I only tested with Android, and these headphones worked flawlessly for me.

Here is a quick break down of some functions. They had it listed in their instruction pamphlet like this:

Ending a Call – Short press the MFB one time

Rejecting a Call – Short press the MFB for one second

Last Number Redial – Press the MFB twice

Cancel/End Dial in Practice – Short press the MFB one time

Music Pause/Play – Short Press the MFB one time

See, very basic, and easy to do.

The ear hook design is one of my favorites. My older son loves it as well. You can do handstands, and they stay put. My long hair knocks everything else out. Now, if you wear glasses, it makes this design a tweak harder. You have to put the earphones on first, and then your glasses. I was able to do this without issue. I love how they actually state the phone number when you call, so there is no guessing. That is important when you are driving. You never have to glance at your phone, even for a second. If you have to use your phone while you drive, due to work. Then having a solid pair of Bluetooth headphones is imperative. The calls came through loud and clear. The listener also heard what I was saying, or my husband, without issue. Overall, these are turning out to be a solid pair of headphones, and we are very happy with them.

Crisp clear sound with SoundPEATs New Arrival Q11 Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sport Headset.

Standard

I have to admit it; I am really fond of Soundpeat headphones. They really haven’t disappointed us in the past. I was so happy to receive their Q11 headphones to test. I love, love, love this over ear design. If you are bouncy, have a lot of hair, and are active, these babies will not fall out of your ear, and they are sweat proof! The design is perfecto! I wouldn’t change one thing! I really can’t express that enough. The design is perfect. Now, down to the music, lol. I wouldn’t be happy if they stayed on, but sounded horrible. That would be extra horrible, lol. These sound wonderful. The music and phone calls are nice, and crisp and clear. They chalk that up to their Bluetooth 4.1 technology and their apt X technology. It’s working for them. The bass and instrumental are clear. No edginess, or interference. There is no jumping or static at different levels. These headphones do have a bar off of the right ear. The controls are on the bar, and the micro USB port to charge them is on the right ear. The bar has a multipurpose button in the center, and a plus and minus buttons on either side of the multipurpose button. Press and hold the multipurpose button to turn them on and to pair. They come up as QY11 to pair, and no code is needed. They paired immediately with My Galaxy Note 5 phone. They do speak to you a little. For example: Power on, Power off, Phone 1 connected. They do not state the incoming call phone number though. One press of the multipurpose button is all it’s needed to both answer a phone call and to hang up a phone call. It will go back to playing your music when your call is over. Now, for the + and – buttons. Short press the minus button to lower the volume, long press to restart your song. Short press the + button to increase the volume, and long press to move to the next song. It’s very responsive, no lag. The calls are clear, and I had no trouble answering or hanging up. My husband used them out and about on the road for work without a hitch. You really can’t take calls without Bluetooth when you are in a car. Hands free is really the only way to go. He is on the road a lot, but has to take calls for work. These allow him to be safe and efficient. He also likes to run, and these are there for him yet again. Unfortunately I really love them too, lol. But, I love him more, so he gets first dibs on keeping them.

Great sound quality. – Vomach’s Bluetooth Earphones.

Standard

We use Bluetooth headphones all of the time in my household. They are well loved, lol. My guys live and breathe with them, since they can use them at work and for working out. They always need to be able to take calls as well. With Bluetooth headphones like these, they can continue to work and drive, and still take calls from inspectors, head of the company, clients and more. These headphones are perfect for them, and very slick looking. The design is very modern, and professional. These Vomach Bluetooth Earphones come with a small micro USB charging cable, and 2 pairs of extra silicone earbuds. The controls are on the right ear. The micro USB charging port is on the left ear. The controls are on the right ear are a +, – and multipurpose button. The multipurpose button is on the top, and the other two buttons are on the backside of your ear. This is pretty easy to remember. These headphones have Bluetooth CSR V4.1 technology. You can even connect to two items at the same time. After you connect with the first item, turn off your Bluetooth. Then connect the second item. Now, go ahead and turn the Bluetooth back on the first item.  The sound quality is pretty great, it really is. They have noise isolation as well. Lol, I keep yelling at people when I talk while the music is playing. The bass and instrumental sound well balanced, and clear. Music is really enjoyable with this set up. These talk to you, so there is no guessing. It states things like: Power On, Pairing, Power Off, and it even spells out the incoming call. On the right ears’ + button and – buttons, you long press these to adjust the volume, and short press to either move forward in your play list or restart your song. For the price point these are at, they are awesome. You can get about the usual 30ft away from these, just not down the hallway, around corners, or behind doors. These do get about 5hours of playtime, less if you play the music really loud. If you only use these for calls, maybe closer to 6 hours of battery life. These have in internal 80mAh battery. These also get 200 hours of standby time, and only take a 1 ½ hours to charge. Not too shabby. I really like these headphones.
