When it comes to headphones, there are dime a dozen models to choose from. Of course, some of us would prefer earphones, while others prefer headphones, wireless or wired, it really boils down to what suits the shape of your ears better, not to mention your budget and the ilk. Well, with so many different models out there, why not throw caution to the wind and try something that hails from a lesser known name? I am referring to the Bluetooth 4.1 Magnet Attraction Headphones by EC Technology.
Yup, I myself have not heard of EC Technology before, but they happen to be a supplier of high quality consumer electronics products, and they have just introduced the spanking new EC Technology Bluetooth 4.1 headset that will boast of headphone functionality, and not only that, will also come with a microphone as well as stereo with Magnet Attraction, now how about that? There will be a top-of-the-line CSR8635 Bluetooth 4.1 chipset which has been integrated and thrown into the mix in order to achieve a wire-free connection to smartphones, tablets, PCs and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Through this, one will be able to enjoy a steady Bluetooth signal, and when coupled with an independent in-line control and HD microphone, users will be able to enjoy incredible wireless freedom regardless of whether they are listening to music or simply making a call to friend or family.
There will also be selectable soft medical grade earbuds that allow a fit for various ear sizes, ensuring that users will never have to feel uncomfortable, even after wearing them for a long time. There will also be an adjustable buckle that makes it possible to set to their most favorable length. It has a 10-meter working distance, allowing you to enjoy your favorite thumpin’ tunes whenever you are pounding the pavement or hitting the mills at the gym. With a form factor that measures all of just 4.2” x 3” x 1”, this is one ultra-light and ultra-small device that will surely underline its comfortable design and sets users’ ears free.

We are not necessarily kind to our eyes. Not only do we forget our sunglasses all the time, but we then spend hours upon hours staring at a screen every day. We also get so into our work that we forget to blink, drying our eyes out and burning our corneas. It’s a very real thing. While making sure to blink more while you work can help, trying not to put one focused light in front of your eyes can lessen the damage as well.
If you want to minimize the strain of looking at a screen in a darker room, a backlight behind your monitor can help. The Lightpack will do just that, as this a content-driven lighting system that will not only give you more lighting, but will have it be the same color as what’s on the screen. This gives you a tad more indirect lighting, but also broadens what you’re looking at to be more of a visual experience.
You won’t need to worry about installing drivers as this will be automatically recognized on the first connection. It will play nicely with Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Android, connecting through USB to your setup. While there are options for screens under 52 inches at $79, there is also a Lightpack for TVs that are 65-86” if you’re wanting the same sort of effect for your living room.

The French Open is one of the famous four in the tennis world, where winning all of these four tournaments in a single calendar year would mean that one would pick up the elusive Grand Slam.

Swedish headphone brand Urbanears is more than pleased to be part of the Roland–Garros tradition, thanks to this particular maiden collaboration effort. As a result, one would behold the clay-red edition of Hellas, which would be a pair of sweat-friendly wireless Bluetooth headphones that happen to hail from the new Active collection.

Our special edition Hellas celebrate that creative flair and passion we see played out at Roland– Garros each year. We’re delighted to work alongside such a design-conscious brand like Urbanears to color a pair of headphones in our trademark clay-red.”
Sports headphone Hellas ensures that things remain classy on the courts thanks to a washable headband as well as ear-cushions, an integrated microphone, and a swipe interface which would allow you to cycle through your power-playlist without having to use anything else other than your finger, now how about that? If you are going to make your way to Paris this spring to attend the French Open, then you can pick up the Roland-Garros edition at Roland-Garros stadium shops, at select stores and online at Urbanears.com for $120 a pop. Surely this is one pair of headphones that are extremely stylish, and even if you do not reach the kind of playing skills like that of Rafael Nadal on clay during his heydays, then at least you look darn good while bowing out to your opponent.

When it comes to the name JOBY, you know for sure that it is all too familiar for those who want a particular accessory that will be able to provide a really, really tough grip on whatever it is supposed to hold, and yet being sure footed enough, so to speak, to remain stuck on the place of your choice. Sort of like a gorilla or other apes on trees who are able to navigate through the various branches with nary a scratch, and perching on perilously close edges without missing a beat. Well, the latest JOBY GorillaPod Speaker Stand would fall under that category as well, while maintaining the dignity of its brand name, by changing the way you use portable Bluetooth speakers.

The GorillaPod Speaker Stand will fit majority of the top-selling wireless speakers out there, including the likes of the Beats Pill, Ultimate Ears Boom, Jambox, Sony SRSX2, and JBL Pulse, among others.
Tim Grimmer, vice president of Brand and Product for JOBY, shared, “Placing portable speakers on surfaces like the ground or tabletops can often result in a decrease in the quality of the speaker’s sound with an increase in sound vibration.

The GorillaPod Speaker Stand now allows music lovers and podcast enthusiasts to securely hold their speaker and place it almost anywhere.

Learning to play an instrument takes a lot of practice. If you are pursuing music as a career you need to be playing for 6 or more hours a day to really hone your craft. Once you get to be familiar enough with your instrument, it starts to become an extension of you, and you begin to notice how it plays in comparison with other makes and models of its kind.
If you play the piano, everything from the weight and response of the keys to the resonance in the body will all become very obvious to you. Changing to a digital counterpart can feel a bit strange since much of that natural aesthetic is taken away. The Orcinus Orchestral Digital Grand Piano is for serious pianists who want all of the bells and whistles of digital, but also want that real piano sound and feel. This was designed after the body of the Orcinus Orca, mimicking its shape in an abstract way with the lid resembling a dorsal-like fin.
Under the hood is a 500-tone Roland audio processor that will make each note from the 88 Ivoplast and ebony keys sound like they may as well belong to the real thing. There are five built-in speakers which make up the 200-watt audio system. There are also two XLR jacks, 4 MIDI ports, and 2 USB ports to let you record directly. This weighs around 992 pounds and costs $105,000, so you can imagine the shipping isn’t going to be a pleasant matter to deal with. Although, anyone who’s buying this is likely a highly-paid musician that can afford such a luxurious keyboard.

Flexible displays – and those that show off its content in full color to boot, happen to be the dream of many a science fiction fan, that is for sure. While we have seen advancements in the field by the likes of LG, here we are with Samsung and their spanking new fully flexible OLED display which looks as though it is more than ready to be released in the market.
This flexible OLED display will cater for the likes of smartphones first, although we are pretty certain that tablets too, are set to follow – and a myriad of devices afterwards. The machine, as seen in the video above, will be able to pull the display out from as though it was a scroll. This is definitely a step in the right direction for the masses, and eventually, we should be able to reach a stage where there are many different kinds of devices that will allow us to pull out the screen, and then to have it roll right back in like a measuring tape.
This particular rollable display is no mean feat, taking into consideration the kind of technological breakthroughs in which it has to go through. For instance, the screen size might just be 5.7” in its measurements, but it will still be able to deliver Full HD resolution, now how about that? Of course, no prizes for guessing that the next logical step would be to bump up the resolution so that it can hit the 4K mark, but that is a different story for another day.
As for this 5.7” 1080p OLED panel, it measures all of just 0.01” (0.3mm) thick – or should we say, thin? This discounts the touch layer, so do keep that at the back of your mind, but the real miracle is the fact that it is fully flexible. Chances are Samsung’s OLED manufacturing plants will be fitted to roll out more and more of such displays in the future, and who are we to go against the possibility of Samsung introducing a smartphone that lets you roll out its display some time down the road?

When it comes to owning a good pair of headphones or earphones, you can be sure that the folks over at Urbanears have got your back. After all, they have had their fair share of stunning looking devices in the past, and this time around, it looks as though they are going to continue in that grand tradition, revealing the Limited Sweat Edition headphones to the masses. This pair of headphones have been named in such a manner for one simple reason – it intends to put the beauty of sweat in the spotlight.
The Limited Sweat Edition has been developed in collaboration with seven stand-out individuals from music, sport, and fashion industries, and you can be sure that each of these luminaries have been given their own Hellas headphones from the Urbanears Active collection to wear when they are indulging in the workout of their choice.
Three of these special editions have been created by running coach Knox Robinson, dancer ‘WilldaBeast’ Adams, and musician Amanda Bergman, who can be spotted sweating it out in the Mojave Desert in a short film, which adds to the visceral nature of the headphones. Knox Robinson said, “There’s a crucial connection between music and running. The two don’t rely on each other per se but when combined in the right way the results can be amazing.”
Apart from the three mentioned, others who are putting their sweat-soaked headphones up for sale happen to be British singer V V Brown, American model Barbie Ferreira, German fashionista Bonnie Strange, and French DJ and entrepreneur Nadege Winter. You might think that these headphones would stink with all of their sweat, but I suppose the more artistically inclined among us might figure out otherwise. Fret not for your nose though, as each pair of the Hellas headphones have been sealed in a bag post-workout, signed and labeled with the details of the sweat-session.
Buyers will be forced to make an important decision – either to either keep the headphones as a collectors item, or to open up the bag and put them back into use. You might want to take advantage of the Hellas’ ability to remove its washable headband and ear cushions and get some washing done before you “mark” it with your own sweat.
