The 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.

While some of us are the strong and silent type, and prefer to spend time in solitude – even when you are exercising, there are others who need external stimuli in order to go to the next level of performance. Having said that, music plays a very important role when it comes to motivating one in the realm of sports, and if you were to engage in some of the rather more vigorous activities to sweat those calories away, it will definitely require a good pair of earphones. In-ear headphones work well, and Soul Electronics knows this – which is why they have just announced the Run Free Pro in-ear sports headphone that has been specially designed so that it will not fall off.
The Run Free Pro will sport a sleek design that has a first ever interchangeable ear lock system that offers comfort and style – even as you run, or when you are on-the-go. The Run Free Pro also happens to be the very first Bluetooth in-ear headphones that claim to offer a guarantee that they will never fall off or fall out. In addition, Soul’s Run Free Pro will offer the ultimate listening experience that caters to an active lifestyle community as it embodies the brands core elements: power, clarity and comfort.
It does not matter if you are pounding the pavement or on-the-go, the Run Free Pro will boast of a reversible fitting option that will allow the cable to be moved over or under your ear for superior comfort. It will also feature a wind noise reduction technology that does away with wind interference, and this sporty and fashionable waterproof Run Free Pro will go a long way in exemplifying Soul Electronics blend of high-performance sound and fashion elements.
The asking price for the Run Free Pro stands at $129 a pop if you are interested, where it comes in storm black and electric blue shades.

It 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.
I suppose having a good pair of earphones is essential, especially if you happen to be one who spends plenty of time commuting each day, and would like to listen to your favorite tunes along the way in order to pass time. Having said that, there are way too many different brands out there in the market,and each company would have touted the merits of individual headsets. Optoma is one of them, and this particular company has just announced the availability of not one, but two new earphones, known as the NE800M and NE750M, which will make up part of its NuForce range of audio products.
Optoma did show off these earphones earlier this year at CES, but they were not made available for purchase, not at least until now. These earphones have been specially designed for those who care about the best sound quality, and happen to be perfect for audio enthusiasts, music lovers and gamers alike.
Both earphones will boast of new NuForce designed 8.6mm UWB (ultra-wideband) drivers for superior sound quality. The innovative aperiodic bass loading method is said to be able to yield a wide and open soundstage, at the same time reducing the ear pressure for a fatigue free and more comfortable listening experience. It does come with exceptional acoustic design, top quality components and an ultra-lightweight and durable chassis, where the NE800M and NE750M offer a substantial upgrade from the standard earphones which happen to accompany a new smartphone or music player. Both of these earphones will also come equipped with a smartphone compatible microphone, and they have their very own carrying case and a range of ear tips in various sizes in order to ensure the best possible fit.
The NE800M earphones have been machined from carbon fiber, and this would help eliminate the micro-dynamic vibrations which add unnecessary colorations to music. Fret not about your ears, as the soft silicone tips will deliver the best shape, fit and sound quality to any user. It comes only in one shade – Black Carbon Fiber with Brass, sporting an asking price of $149.

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.
