So far, how has your 4G LTE experience been when it comes to surfing on a particular device? It surely defies imagination, although I do wonder whether the “wow” factor is there as though you were experiencing a huge shift from GPRS and EDGE to 3G connectivity in the past. Having said that, Panasonic intends to take full advantage of a decent 4G connection by introducing their Panasonic Nubo, which is a connected 4G monitoring camera.
Forget about having a professional camera system installed in your home or office that will rely on a Wi-Fi connected kit, with the spanking new Panasonic Nubo, you will be able to fall back on its very own 4G network connection. In other words, you will gain the mobility of a Wi-Fi kind of device, all without having to be limited to the trappings of a standard Wi-Fi network that will certainly fail whenever the power is cut.
The Panasonic Nubo is best described to be a standalone camera complete with its very own mobile data plan. The Nubo itself will cost you $249, which makes it far from being an impulse purchase, while the data plan will set you back anywhere from $7 to $10 monthly, boasting of weekly cloud storage backups and 250 notifications. The most expensive data plan will cost somewhere in the region of $60 alongside month-long cloud storage backups and 2,500 notifications. I suppose you can also use this for other semi-covert operations in public, where you would like to record something without having to rely on a Wi-Fi network.
The Panasonic Nubo happens to be weather resistant and will boast of sensor connectivity through an integrated wireless radio. Not only that, extra sensor controls will allow it to trigger human detection, while two-way communication has been built into the system so that users are able to talk to one another via the camera when an alert is triggered. An external battery pack is part of the deal, letting you use it even when there is no power source in the vicinity.

Children are exposed to the digital world earlier and earlier these days, and there does not seem to be any stopping them to boot. Well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, right? Parents will nod in agreement, but then as parents, at the very least you have the responsibility to ensure that your child’s well being is taken care of – especially when he or she happens to plug in a pair of headphones most of the time when using the smartphone or tablet, mainly to enjoy whatever audio or music that is being played back.

NuForce, a name that would be familiar with those who are interested in professional and consumer audio gear, has recently announced the introduction of the NuForce Primo 8, which so happens to be its flagship audiophile-quality in-ear headphones. The NuForce Primo 8 will see the unification of coherence and seamlessness of one-driver earphones alongside the detail and transient speed of balanced armature drivers, resulting in an extraordinarily natural, lifelike sound. This translates to the Primo 8 excelling in its ability to reproduce vocals unlike any other in-ear headphone on the market at this point in time.
NuForce has ensured that every individual Primo 8 earpiece will come with a quartet of proprietary balanced armature speakers in order to form a unique 3-way design. The four balanced-armature drivers that are located in each earphone are capable of delivering smooth, extended response, explosive dynamic realism and fatigue-free sound. Out of that, two of them would operate as one for bass frequencies, where one speaker will cater for the midrange while the other is for treble.
When there are two speakers that work in tandem in order to reproduce the lowest frequency ranges, the listener will be able to experience the purest, most natural bass possible. The Primo 8’s fast, rock-solid bass serves as the foundation for dynamic sound reproduction that was previously available only in the most costly over-ear dynamic and electrostatic designs.
Apart from that, the Primo 8’s proprietary crossover design would also see the earphone’s four speakers singing together in unity as one. Such technology would be clearly audible, where listening to plucked strings would make you feel as though you are attending a “live” event, while percussion explodes in a truly three-dimensional sound stage. The NuForce Primo 8 would retail for a whopping $499, but that is the price one has to pay for quality.

When it comes to headphones and earphones, this particular industry seems to settle comfortably into a unisex mindset, ranging from its fit to acoustics and design. Well, Skullcandy, ever the innovator, intends to turn things on its head by introducing a range of products that will feature reimagined acoustics, engineering, and industrial design. We are talking about the extremely functional yet relentlessly forward Skullcandy Women’s collection that was specially developed via careful thought and extensive research, having drawn inspiration from within Skullcandy’s very own team of Olympic and Athlete Ambassadors, where among them include the talented pro-snowboarder Kimmy Fasani and pro-surfer Leila Hurst. This particular collection would be a representation of youth, passion, strength, and singularity of the female consumer market.
Michelle Whitehead, Skullcandy’s Director of Brand and Sports Marketing shared, “The truth is there are real anatomical, acoustical, and behavioral differences in how male and female consumers experience our product. Our goal was to understand these differences well enough to design products, from the ground up, that would legitimately improve the audio experience for our female consumer. We are extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished.”
All three products, the Knockout, Bombshell, and Dime, did include acoustics, comfort, materialization, fit, and even hygiene during the development process. Apart from that, the collection’s audio drivers have also been custom-tuned to reflect field research that supports the fact that both women and men hear differently (no doubt about that!), as Skullcandy engineers worked round the clock in order to come up with what they deem is the perfect headband fit for the ladies, in addition to earbud size and shape.
Fine tuned and specially engineered for women, this range will be further complimented by premium fabrics and materialization. There are floral prints, rose gold finishes, and subtle stud embellishments which happen to be bold fashion-forward aesthetics that will add a dash of feminine edge to the predominantly unisex category, functioning as a mirror to what female consumers and their unique styles and perspectives carry. Expect Skullcandy Women’s to have launched in the U.S. already, where it will cost anywhere from $29.99 to $99.99, depending on the model that you choose.

It is a pity if hardware manufacturers were to introduce their devices to the masses by concentrating solely on function instead of paying an equal amount of attention to form. Thankfully, the folks over at V-MODA do not think along these lines, and their latest XS headphones are touted to deliver both fashion and performance in a single package. This reflects V-MODA’s commitment to fashion-forward wearable technology, where it merges professional-grade quality and a personalized style.
One must say that the angles and sleek headband design found on the XS “mind the gap” as it minimizes the unsightly space that normally appears between the headband and your head. The end result? We are looking at not only a superior fit, but also added comfort, grander sound and a compact profile. It has taken more than 5 years of R&D to arrive at this particular design which should see it pass through any wind-tunnel tests with flying colors, too.
With the XS headphones from V-MODA, you are able to enjoy long listening sessions in comfort, thanks to supple memory foam cushions which will naturally adapt to your ears for faster “burn-in” and better noise isolation. The XS model happens to be one of the smallest in its category, and this is also due to its patent-pending CliqFold Hinge which will precisely fold the headphones into an impossibly small exoskeleton case. The headphones and case are so tiny that many users in focus groups after giving it a go, decided to ditch their usual in-ear headphones.
Features include patent pending 40mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers without the need for any batteries or artificial sound processing, Dual Inputs and SharePlay with V-CORK seals (patent-pending), a Kevlar-reinforced universal SpeakEasy microphone cable for Apple iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows devices, as well as a 2-year premier warranty, lifetime 50% immortal life program and V-MODA Six Star Service. You can choose from Matte Black Metal or White Silver colors at $212 a pop.

When it comes to the world of headphones, making a particular purchase decision is not all that easy. After all, there are so many models to choose from, and you do not want to end up forking out money for something that does not offer as much bang for your buck as you wished. Well, one name that I am quite sure is able to serve up decent value for money would be JBL, and one of their latest headphones would be the JBL WR2.4. Of course, right off the bat, most folks would notice that the JBL WR2.4 headphones is missing the cord, which is an all too common feature in majority of the headphones out there, leading us to only one conclusion – this is a wireless device which will hopefully live up to the family name.
In a nutshell, without a cable to tether the JBL WR2.4 headphones to a compatible music playback device, you will be able to enjoy untethered freedom to move around, as long as the headphones remain within range, that is. We are looking at approximately 100 feet (30 meters) of reception range, while the nuilt-in rechargeable batteries will let you extend freedom from the AC outlet, too, delivering up to eight hours of continuous playtime.
Apart from wireless convenience, the JBL WR2.4 headphones have also been specially designed to be comfortable to wear, too. It is lightweight in nature, and comes with generously sized padded cups as well as a fully adjustable headband. This would allow you to wear the wireless headphones without suffering from fatigue or feeling hot between the head despite wearing it for an extended period of time. The WR2.4 headphones comes with semi-closed back acoustics to deliver naturally enhanced sound quality via their 18 Hz to 20 kHz sound range, while it has an uncompromising 2.4 GHz digital bandwidth for reception that remains untainted by transmission noise, sporting 32-ohm impedance to deliver a wide range of listening volumes. Running on a pair of AAA batteries, the JBL WR2.4 headphones can be yours for $99.95 per pair.
