Sharing the action is as simple as turning on the Dual Play feature, as you hook up a pair of LG Tone Studio wearable speakers so that you can let everyone else around you enjoy sounds from a movie, playlist or others.

When you listen to music and take out one ear bud, you normally lose the depth of the intended experience, as both the right and left ear buds pump different aspects of the music. To make your own music, you could certainly record a lovely song on your phone and put it up on iTunes, but for obvious reasons it’s not going to sound as good as something you would record in a studio. For those that are interested in audio, you know that not all mics are created equal, as some are able to record in stereo rather than mono alone, meaning you’ll be able to hear the sound you’re picking up in a more realistic way.
If you want to record audio for music, interviews, learning, or just to record for the fun of it, the Zoom H4N seems like a top-notch way to go about doing it. Microphones like the Blue Yeti and the Widget are more stay-at-home mics, while this can go in your pocket or on a camera hotshoe. The beauty of this little mic is that it can record up to 4 simultaneous tracks, with a phantom power that can work with just about any type of microphone.
On its own it’s capable of recording up to 2 tracks at either 90 or a 120 degree angle. It only needs 2 AA batteries, and will give you around 11 hours of battery life. There is also a slot for a 32GB SD card so you can record to your hearts content. This is no cheap purchase as it is intended for more professional use, so be ready to deal with a $200 price tag. The plus side is that you could use this for just about anything in the realm of recording.
Available for purchase on Amazon

SOL Republic is a name that many of us are well versed with, as they have come up with their fair share of fantastic performing headphones in the past. The kind of pedigree that the brand name carries with is certainly not lost on the latest arrival — the SOL Republic Amps Air headphones. What would make this pair of $179.99 headphones worth checking out? It is certainly not priced to target the impulse purchase market, that is for sure, and it would be a proper investment for those who would like to enjoy their music or movies while they are on the move.
For starters, the Amps Air headphones would be sweat-resistant, making them ideal for use while you are busy pounding the pavement as part of your exercise regime in the battle against the bulge. Apart from that, they are also wireless — and this provides you with the kind of freedom that you could only previously dream of, as long as it jives with your music playback device over Bluetooth.
The Amps Air wireless headphones might be small and extremely light, but do not for a second think that battery life is compromised due to the form factor. Capable of allowing up to three hours of playback on a full charge, this is definitely impressive for a pair of wireless headphones. Not only that, to keep up with the trends in the industry at this point in time, the Amps Air headphones will be accompanied by a sleek, portable charging case that will be able to recharge the Amps Air more than 15 times thanks to its integrated 2200mAh battery, while the inclusion of a USB port would turn this into a portable power bank.

So, you feel that you need a pair of new earphones, but are not quite sure where and how to start? Fret not — there are many different models out there in the market, and we are here to help you sift through the chaff from the wheat. LG might not rank as a name that audiophiles would settle for, but this does not mean that one should discount their all-new premium around-the-ear wireless Bluetooth headset known as the LG FORCE.
Targeting those who live an active lifestyle and yet want to enjoy their music while they are on the move, the LG FORCE will be lightweight in nature thanks to its minimalist form factor, and will be made available exclusively over AT&T. Needless to say, since the LG FORCE is a Bluetooth headset, it will also be compatible with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and the recently announced LG V20 would be a prime example of that.
The LG FORCE delivers an over the ear, stay-put design and IPx5 water and sweat resistance rating — which means it should not hinder you from taking a jog when it pours or drizzles with the LG FORCE in tow. The thing is, it would be best to ensure that your smartphone or connected device is protected against such water damage or circumstances instead. The minimalist design ensures that fitness enthusiasts and audiophiles can enjoy a snug fit, thanks to the inclusion of interchangeable ear gels. Not only that, there, is a rotating wraparound silicone earpiece and adjustable strap so that one can enjoy a true customizable fit.
The LG FORCE will be going for $99 a pop and is a snap to tote around with you via a workout bag or backpack. It not only looks good, it is also set to work great as you get pumped by your favorite tunes during your rigorous workouts.
LG FORCE drops the wires as a premium Bluetooth headset
When it comes to a pair of headphones or earphones, the choice is a very personal one. However, many of us might want to consider picking up a wireless model which will more often than not involve Bluetooth connectivity, as the tangled mess that wired models end up with tend to be very irritating, especially when you need to unravel it. 1MORE knows this, which is why this premier consumer electronics audio company has started to sell a couple of its latest Bluetooth models, accompanied by a single wired in-ear headphone. The new models would be the iBFree Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones, the MK802 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones, and the Piston Classic In-Ear Headphones.
For those who prefer something wired, the Piston Classic In-Ear Headphone might be the ideal choice, as it delivers quality, sound, and style in an affordable manner. I guess this is something that is a step up from generic headphones that are on the market, and yet won’t keep any serious audiophile happy.
For folks who prefer the Bluetooth treatment, the two models will boast of CRS Bluetooth 4.1 chips with aptX coding technology, where it delivers meticulous sound quality and a stable wireless option for consumers who want more freedom from wires. In fact, Tim Burton, VP of Sales, claimed that these models are the first Bluetooth headphones that he has used so far which he is unable to tell whether they were wireless based on the audio quality, stressing that “even the talk quality is far superior without the common echo of other Bluetooth headphones.”
This is made possible thanks to the MK802 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones boasting of rare Beryllium drivers, allowing it to deliver an exceptionally comprehensive sound with a durable, lightweight, and stylish TR-90 exterior. Sporting a “Bass Level” switch on the ear cup for folks who would like to have bass highlighted or limited, in addition to optional hearing protection so that hearing loss and fatigue are reduced, the MK802 will also play nice with the 1MORE app so that one can control hearing protection, and assign controllable apps, among others. With an asking price of $129.99, it is not an impulse purchase for sure.
Up next would be the $49.99 iBFree Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones that feature extremely lightweight aluminum alloy earpieces with Bluetooth 4.1 aptX coding, oblique angled ergonomic comfort, and titanium dynamic drivers. Not only that, it is also IPX4 rated water-resistant against rain, spills, and sweat, and will arrive in vibrant red, space gray, aqua blue, and apple green colors.
