Samsung R5, R3 and R1 wireless audio 360 speakers set to rock your world

samsung-360It looks like Samsung Electronics are not going to just sit there and watch the world go by – as they make and take the effort to spruce up the Wireless Audio 360 speaker range by introducing three new models at IFA 2015. The three new speakers would be the R5, R3 and R1 models, where they are all of the omni-directional variety that feature a new built-in tap-and-swipe user interface in addition to an improved Multiroom app for customers’ smartphones, tablets and smartwatches. I guess the world of wireless speakers have just become all the more interesting with the release of yet another three more models to join in the fray. This just goes to show that Samsung is not all about large screen TVs and high end smartphones only, but they seem to encompass a whole slew of consumer electronics, too.

It looks as though the R5, R3 and R1 models will tread the same path which the R7 and R6 speakers took, where the latter picked up their fair share of bouquets along the way as well. True to form, this new trio of speakers will be able to deliver a similar high-quality, balanced sound, and premium table-top design which should be able to see them fit into just about any home without any issue.

The R5, R3 and R1 models will also stand out with one stark difference – they boast of new physical control options that offer a hassle-free and intuitive user experience. This means you are now able to change the volume, play, pause, or select a different music source all with a gentle touch, tap or swipe on top of the speaker. Expect these new models to arrive Stateside as well as in European markets in the last quarter of this year, where pricing will start from $199 and go all the way to $399.

Samsung Inearfit earphones are perfect for your new Galaxy S6

The modern day smartphone offers a whole lot more than just the ability to make and receive calls, text messages as well as email, but it is also a navigational tool for many other people – not to mention the fact that it also doubles up as a portable media player for a fair number of us who happen to commute to work. Having said that, the amount of storage on smartphones has increased as well by leaps and bounds over the years, allowing one to stash an ever increasing amount of media on the go, so much so that it might even take a month or two before we need to transfer the videos and photos snapped on the handset to free up more space. Enjoying your favorite tunes on the handset is also something that many do, so instead of annoying others with your favorite set of eclectic tunes, how about about getting a decent pair of headphones to go along with your device? Samsung has done just that with their Inearfit earphones, targeting those who are rocking to the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Having built this new pair of earphones for the Galaxy S6, Samsung intends to deliver both sound quality and comfort in a single offering. In order to achieve both, Samsung decided to go back to the drawing board in order to roll out a hybrid design which will blend a couple of types of earphones – one, a canal-type earphones and the other would be the open-type earphones, where it will then deliver superior sound quality with a sophisticated look.

The canal-type earphones will be inserted in the ear canal as its name suggests, offering an intimate sound experience while blocking out external noise, while open-type earphones are fitted directly in the outer ear. The In-ear Fit earphones from Samsung would bring the best of both worlds to a single device, and intend to tailor the fit so that its earphones comfortably fit every unique user. The silicon covers have also been adapted to ensure long-lasting comfort and optimal wearability, and you can choose from four colors – Blue-black, Blue, Red and White.

The heads are then mounted on four-wheel platforms from radio-controlled cars which will be controlled by the players.

Optoma Primo8 in-ear headphones delivers quality without compromising on style

There needs to be both style and substance in this day and age regardless of whatever product you are looking at, and the headphones would be one such candidate. Optoma knows this, which is why they have come up with what they call the Primo8 in-ear headphones, which has been touted to deliver stellar bass, captivating mids and delicate highs in order to envelop the listener in musical textures that are almost real enough to touch.

Optoma is famous for being an international projector and audio brand, and the reintroduction of the NuForce Primo8 headphones is definitely a milestone. This happens to be a flagship audiophile-quality in-ear headphones, where Primo8 will bring together the coherence and seamlessness of one-driver earphones alongside the detail and transient speed of balanced armature drivers, resulting in an extraordinarily natural, lifelike sound. In addition, the Primo8 also excels in its ability to reproduce vocals which would make it stand out from the rest of the in-ear headphones on the market.

Optoma has definitely outdone themselves by outfitting each Primo8 earpiece with a quartet of proprietary balanced armature speakers in order to form a 3-way design. This four balanced-armature drivers are located in each earphone, resulting in smooth, extended response, explosive dynamic realism and fatigue-free sound. Out of this, a pair of the speakers will operate as one for bass frequencies, with one speaker for midrange and one speaker for treble.

Having a pair of speakers that work alongside one another to reproduce the lowest frequency ranges will see the listener experience the purest, most natural bass possible. The Primo8’s fast, rock-solid bass will definitely fulfill its role as the foundation for dynamic sound reproduction, and this was previously available only in the most costly over-ear dynamic and electrostatic designs. The Primo8’s proprietary crossover design will also see all four of the earphone’s speakers sing in harmony as one. There is no doubt that this technology has clearly audible results.

The Optoma Primo8 will come with a recommended retail price of $499 apiece.

Hitori de Karaoke DX lets you sing your heart out without raising a ruckus

hitori-de-karaoke-dx-solo-noise-freeThe Japanese are the ones who invented karaoke, and there has been no looking back on the karaoke phenomenon even until today. In fact, it is one of the better and healthier ways to let off some steam at the end of a particularly difficult day at the office, since you will be able to belt out all of your favorite hits, although your colleagues or neighbors might not be too happy with the quality of your cover compared to the original artist. Having said that, here is a unique device that will let you sing to your heart’s content – without waking up a sleeping baby right beside you. Enter the $92 Hitori de Karaoke DX, which is actually a solo singing noise-free microphone set.

I guess the trend for solo (hitori de) activities in Japan continues to remain strong, be it a Korean BBQ to a Moomin-themed cafe, solitary diners are a norm, and so too, is karaoke despite it being a great way to socialize with the rest of the world. This noise-free microphone karaoke set has been specially designed to mute your singing to the outside world, allowing the shy songsters to revel in their talent without revealing just what they have deep within their diaphragm. There is a funnel mic cover that ensures your singing remains muffled, while the earphones will cancel out the external speaker output, resulting in a private concert which is a perfect way to relieve stress.

Garmin announces VIRB X and VIRB XE action cameras

garmin-virb-xeIt certainly pays to diversify one’s portfolio, and imagine if Garmin as a company were to rely on their dedicated GPS navigation devices alone, chances are they would have ended up as obsolete and irrelevant. Hence, it is always a pleasant surprise to know that they have diversified their portfolio by making a foray into the world of action cameras, and here we are with the announcement of a couple of models that might just pique your interest – the Garmin VIRB X and the Garmin VIRB XE action cameras.

Regardless of which particular model that you decide to bring home, both of them are more than capable of shooting rich, high-definition, wide-angle footage, where the Garmin VIRB X and XE will boast of an all-new form factor that paves the way for additional mounting options – and indirectly, offer you new and creative ways of capturing video, now how about that?

They are also waterproof up to 50 meters, and the updated camera design happens to be even more rugged, not to mention that they do not need to have an external case when it comes to underwater shooting. Not only that, there are also enhanced video and audio modes, alongside a slew of built-in sensors and wireless functionality options, which can be made use of via the new G-Metrix feature for a wide range of data overlays as well as a richer viewing experience.

The Garmin VIRB X and XE will be able to deliver the best user experience, in addition to the best viewer experience, too, regardless of the activity that you are indulging in at the moment. It does not matter if you would like to analyze your power output by overlaying Vector data, or to show off high G-loading during an aerobatic flight, or to re-live the runs made and vertical feet covered during a powder day with the help of fēnix 3, or even to check out the acceleration and highlight top speed on the racetrack, both the VIRB X and XE will be more than up to the task.

As for the asking price, the Garmin VIRB X and XE will be out later this summer for $299.99 and $399.99, respectively.
