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.

Get tricky with it! – Gifts and Gadgets Onlines’ Gift Card Maze by TechTools.

Standard

gift-card-maze-1

I have seen advertisements for maze boxes over the years, in magazines. I have always been very intrigued by them, but have never pulled the trigger on ordering one. I give gift cards every year as gifts, and they really aren’t any fun to buy. This baby brings the enjoyment up a notch for the buyer, lol. Maybe not so much for the receiver, haha. This maze box from Gifts and Gadgets Online is pretty cool. I love that it’s see through, and made out of pretty durable plastic. This should be reusable as long as no one pries open the door. It measures out at 5 ½” long x 3 3/8th” wide x just over ½” thick. It works like any other ball maze. You need to move the metal ball through the maze, until it lands over the slide. When the ball is there, you push the slide firmly over, and it pops the door open. The first time I tried it, I gently slid the slide over, and nothing happened. I then pushed the slide firmly over, and the ball moved and the door popped open. It was a Eureka moment, if I may say so myself! This maze comes with a snowman card in the slot. It’s pretty cute. This will fit any regular sized gift card perfectly. It will also fit cold hard cash as well. I am so excited about using this, this holiday season. For once, a gift card will be a lot of fun to give!

Stapling with ease with GizmoMate’s GM-X Automatic Electric Stapler.

Standard

Whenever I think about staplers, I think about the infamous red stapler from the movie Office Space. That was hilarious. This stapler could become that for you, lol. It really takes stapling up to the next level. It even comes loaded with staples, and is ready to work right out of the box. Now they just need to offer it in red, lol. This stapler is black in color. No larger than a regular stapler. It measures only 6 7/8th” in length, and is 1 6/8th” wide. It takes the standard sized staples too (26/6 staples), so you can pick them up anywhere really, which is great. This is an electric stapler, and it uses a regular outlet. It comes with a detachable power cord, and is only a 2 prong plug. You can use this without electricity if so needed. On the bottom of the stapler there is a battery compartment. No tool is necessary to access it. This stapler can run off of 6 AA batteries. They are not included.

They state this stapler can staple up to 8000 times on one battery fill. Lol, I did not test that out. With regular weight paper, this baby can staple up to 25 sheets of paper at one time. That is huge. I hate all of my regular staplers, because I have them jam up on the paper all of the time, when I only have 2 pieces of paper to be stapled. Staplers have become a source of agitation to me, lol. So, I am loving these professional style electric staplers. They just work sooooo much better for me. This stapler staples with ease. It is easy to refill. Just press in the back of the stapler where it says push, and the compartment pops open. With two fingers, you can easily adjust the depth of the stapler, too. The tabs are on each side of the stapler. Just pull them out to your desired depth. It can be adjusted from between 0.2 inches to 1.6 inches. I love how quiet this stapler is as well. I tested another one recently, and this is just as quiet, so I was pleased. It is pretty lightweight, and is made out of thick ABS plastic. It is not a flimsy piece in the least, but highly portable if you work on the road. I haven’t had any issues at all with the paper jamming. It staples so quick and easily. You literally just push your papers into it, and it staples on its’ own. It really is the perfect stapler. I love it.

Cutlery on the go. – Hale Baby’s Kakalu 3 Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set.

Standard

utensil-set-4

Working on the road can be tough. Fast food ends up being your daily food intake, for the most part. Even if you prefer fast food, if you order something through the drive thru, half the time they forget your cutlery you need to it. But not only that, even if you take food with you on the road, you will still need cutlery. I, in the past, have lost many a utensil to on the road, food needs. It got to the point, where I said, no more, buy disposable utensils. Disposable utensils are convenient, only if you remember to buy them, lol. They, however, are not eco-friendly, or durable.

A set like this, from Hale Baby is very convenient. But not just for you on the road eaters, but for prepping, camping, road trips, and picnicking, to mention a few. I love how this set includes its’ own zippered storage case. The case is simple, and works perfectly. It is made out of backpack material, and has a zippered closure, which works very well. Also included in the set, which is just a perk, is a nice measuring tape, which is very convenient to own and have. It’s good to keep one in your car. I can’t tell you how many times we have been in a home improvement store, and needed to measure s piece to see if it would work. That, and with the ever changing clothing sizes, it’s good to know a measurement. My mom, last year, went clothes shopping for my bday. She bought me 4 pairs of shorts, and they were all different sizes. Same brand and model too, lol. She took a tape measure, and measured across the waist line. So, it’s very convenient to keep one in your glove compartment.

utensil-set-5

In this set you get 1 zippered case, 1 tape measure tape, 1 teaspoon, 1 fork, and 1 demitasse spoon. They are labeled and made out of stainless steel. And, they are not bendy either. I always do the bendy test. If I can bend it in my hands, then it wouldn’t last at all with my strong guys! So, they would be worthless, then. The teaspoon measures 6.69″ in length, dinner fork size is 6.77″ in length, and the demitasse spoon size is 4.8″ in length. The small spoon is great for little kids, your coffee, or as a backup spoon if you haven’t washed your regular spoon. The utensils themselves are comfortable to hold and use. It’s a great basic set, and really comes in handy. When you have a safe room for Tornados, etc., with food in it, don’t forget your utensils. A set per person, of these would be great to store. Overall, this is a well-made set. Mine arrived with no imperfections, and I think it s a very handy set to own.

A great self defense tool. – Smart Security’s Brand New Survival Tactical Pen.

Standard

tactical-pen-with-case-6

Tactical pens are a great tool to have on you. You can pretty much always have one on you too, be it in your purse, brief case, or on your person. It spans almost all jobs, including being a student. After all, it is a pen. My guys have used a tactical pen for a few years now, so I have claimed this one for myself. A tactical pen is much more than a pen. It is also a means to defend yourself, if in need to do so. The end of the pen has a Tungsten steel tip. You can use this to defend yourself easily, as well as, use it to free yourself from your car in an accident. This will act just like a glass breaker since it can be used to slam an attackers’ head very well. I slammed it into a piece of plywood several times without issue, to test it out. You can’t even tell I tried to rough it up. The actual pen itself is made out of aircraft aluminum alloy. That is what a lot of flashlights are made out of too, for comparison. It is very durable pen! It arrives in a plastic container, that is foam lined and reusable. It was recycled from past flashlights they used to sell. I like seeing things being recycled. The pen actually comes with a refill, which is not usual from the tactical pens we have purchased in the past. The pen writes very smoothly out of the box. The cap is a screw on cap, and there is also a pocket clip. The pocket clip holds pretty well. It is silver in color, and can be removed if you choose to. The top unscrews off, and then you can take the pocket clip off, and then screw the top cap back on. This is not as heavy as some tactical pens, but not as light as a regular pen either. You can take this pen on an airplane, which is good to know. that even there, it will be there for you. Overall, this is a well-made pen. It writes smoothly, and is pretty durable. The pocket clip is not the strongest of pocket clips, but if you are not rough on pens, like my guys can be, it works just fine. With the Tungsten tip, and the strong body, this pen can be trusted to be able to defend yourself with it.

There’s always a need. – Bolt Goods MINI Plastic Meal Prep Containers (10 Pack 12 Ounce).

Standard

12oz-containers-8

It’s great to have smaller containers on hand for leftovers. I always have extra left over from my meals I cook. I cook everything from scratch too, so I hate waste. These containers are 12oz containers, and you do indeed get 10 of them. They are BPA free and no phthalates or toxic additives, which is one less worry. I love how easily you can store 10 containers. They really stack together well. I have used containers like this in other sizes a lot. My husband and older son are on the road for work, all of the time. If they do not bring food from home, they just live on fast food, and that is not good. They love to take this type of containers. This size is great for one item, be it veggies, fruit, cheese slices for crackers, snacks, etc… They travel well, and work wonderfully in the microwave, too. The lid locks on really well. I was shocked when I first got containers like these. I thought they would be too thin to be any good, but they are pretty great. My guys prefer taking these containers over others. Since the lids lock on well, they don’t pop open on them if it slides off of their seat while driving. They can be used for portion control, easily, if you are on that type of diet. Since the tops lock on well, you can throw some snacks in one and throw it in your to go bag, when you are out with your little ones for the day, too. Overall, these are very convenient, highly usable and easy to clean. We are really happy with this new size. It’s very convenient for snacks for my guys.

Feeling Patriotic? – Luckyclicks’ American Flag Cufflinks Flag of USA Cuff-links with Velvet Gift Box

Standard

Cufflinks are so much fun. They really change the look and feel of a suit, or even, just a dress shirt. I feel that any American Flag is beautiful, so I really love these. Are they the best cufflinks around, nope. But, I didn’t expect that, lol. My set arrived in perfect condition. The silver tone finish on it was not chipped or scratched. It was nice and shiny, like it’s supposed to be. They do not mention the actual metal they are made out of, but they never rest on your skin, really, so they shouldn’t bother people even with metal sensitivities. The actual cufflink bar mechanism is attached very firmly, and works very well. My flags measure out at ¾” x ½” in size. These are my measurements. It’s a great size for a cufflink; very visible. The entire top of the cufflink is the flag, and it has a thick clear resin covering over it. This was also done well on my pair; no nicks or scratches, or bubbles. The resin finish also helps them shine in the light. The cufflinks arrive in a really pretty gift box, just as shown. Overall, they are made well, they are patriotic, and function perfectly. I think they would make a great gift.
