GoPro Hero6 Black is the latest all-round action camera

gopro-hero6It looks like it is time to get on with the times with a hardware refresh every single year. From smartphones to tablets and even action cameras, not releasing a new model each year is suicidal. GoPro knows this, which is why the company has decided to move forward from the GoPro Hero5 by unveiling the all new GoPro Hero6 Black, which will set the new bar when it comes to image quality, stabilization and simplicity where action cameras are concerned.

Touted to be the most powerful and convenient GoPro ever released, the GoPro Hero6 Black will be powered by GoPro’s very own custom-designed GP1 processor in order to help it achieve a whole new level of performance which includes stunning 4K60 and 1080p240 video, as well as bringing the most advanced video stabilization in a GoPro, ever. Apart from that, the $499.99 GoPro Hero6 Black will arrive in a rugged, waterproof, go-anywhere design that allows it to venture into the most adrenaline pumping experiences with you without missing a beat.

It will work best with the GoPro App that will automatically transform your adventures into cinematic QuikStory videos, which you can then opt to share with the rest of the world. The Hero6 Black has also greatly improved dynamic range and low-light performance in order to ensure that things really look spiffy, while the inclusion of digital zoom helps you get closer to the action if you are physically unable to do so. Even better yet is its ability to be waterproof up to 10 meters, and it captures photos in RAW and HDR formats for a wider range of editing options later on. Just in case you are unable to control the GoPro Hero6 Black with your hands, fret not: it comes with support for voice control in 10 different languages.

If you have answered in the affirmative, then here you are with Clear, the reference headphones from Focal that is able to deliver high quality audio while making you look good wearing it. Focal is a leading French speaker and headphone manufacturer, and the Clear happens to arrive in a circum-aural open-back headphone design that targets audiophiles who are big on performance.

Sporting an ‘M’–shape aluminum/magnesium dome, it arrives equipped with a revolutionary copper voice coil which delivers remarkable dynamics across the audio spectrum. Not only that, the bass will always be controlled even at high volumes, while featuring exemplary linearity in the high-end. This new generation of perforated microfiber ear cushions will also ensure that the Clear’s open design remains as that, providing the headphones with a weightless and almost invisible feeling as if it is not even there.

Backed by three and a half decades of expertise, Focal’s ‘M’-shape inverted dome which is composed of an aluminum/magnesium alloy will deliver an ideal combination of lightness, rigidity and dampening. These traits in addition to an open-back design would enable listeners to feel as though they are using the best high-fidelity loudspeakers despite the fact that it is just a pair of reference headphones. Is it possible to say that this is magic at work? Apart from that, Clear will also offer a full range of connectors, including three different types of cables to ensure that users have the best solution ready at all times. The braided cotton sleeve alongside the 24 AWG oxygen free copper cable delivers low resistance to deliver sound with utmost transparency, while a pair of 3.5mm mono jack sockets located within the headphones can be locked to secure the connection of the cables.

Expect the Focal Clear reference headphones to retail for a whopping $1,499 per pair — not cheap at all, but the kind of quality delivered is mind blowing.

The Philips NC1 Noise Canceling Headphones help make Mondays manageable

Philips NC1

Some days you wish the world had a volume knob so you didn’t have to listen to people talking on their phones, listening to music way too loud, traffic, and the hum of the fluorescent lights above your head in the office. We can’t always completely tune out of our surroundings, but when we can, we want our escape to encompass enough of our senses that we can relax. Listening to some music is always a great way to unwind, but if you can hear any exterior noise, it will break the illusion somewhat.

To get a truly immersive sound experience, you either need to be in a theater, or have noise canceling headphones. There are a multitude of options, and the Philips NC1 Headphones seems like they might be a decent contender. These are 40-mm driver headphones that will let you sink into a blissful sound-scape whenever you need to. They have a standalone acoustic chamber for sound precision, and in-line controls with a mic for when you need to take a call.

They’re quite convenient for travel since they can fold up and be stowed away when they’re not in use. Additionally, they weigh less than 7 ounces, so you shouldn’t be too encumbered by tossing them in your pack. These are going to cost you around $150, and while you may not escape the world around you completely, you can at least drift off for a little while.

V-Moda reveals the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones

V-Moda is well known for their collection of headphones as well as other audio products, and most of the time, these offerings tend to be on the high end side of things. It is the same this time around, with the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones. Specially designed by and for modern audiophiles, the Forza Metallo Wireless comes across as a high-performance and ultra-sleek companion for anyone who has high demands for their audio accessories.

Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO, beams proudly at the Forza Metallo, saying, “All other in-ear wireless headphones have a variety of form factors with show stopping compromises, imperfect ergonomics or useless gimmicks. They either look like unsightly massive ‘plastic space ring around the collars’, Frankenstein bolts that will not stay in your ears or separate earbuds that are quickly lost, have reception issues and need a dongle or case. Our first neckband Bluetooth headphone features a minimal design that can hide under a shirt collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled all-day ergonomics. With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing audiophiles and professionals with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock™ titanium cable refined to every nanometer from countless anatomical tests conducted over years.”

While it sports a minimal design, it is still a high performance piece of hardware, where you will be able to enjoy balanced vibrant bass, vivid mids and natural stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage. The Hi-Res drivers themselves are joined by a CNC forged aircraft-grade metal housing, specially meant to reveal music like instrument engineers intended. It even has the Qualcomm aptX audio codec that helps deliver peak audio, allowing consumers to enjoy CD quality wireless audio playback. Expect the Forza Metallo Wireless to arrive in shades of Gunmetal Black and White Silver for $170 each.

The Ambie Ear Cuff Earphones – don’t tune out completely!

Some days we have too many thoughts running in our heads. The things we have to do at home, errands, any loose ends that were left at work, what we’re behind on for our personal goals, visiting family, friends, the fact that we should be taking a more proactive stance on our health; it all gets to be too much at times. Music can match our mood, and it can also drown out the thoughts of what you need to do and put you in the present moment.

The downside to listening to music is that we often turn it up so high that we can no longer interact with the world around us. If you’re out in public while listening to tunes, you might be in danger and can’t notice because your ear buds are drowning out all the sound. These Ambie Ear Cuff Earphones will let you be in the moment both by letting you hear the music that grounds you, as well as exterior noises.

Aside from being a cuff that wraps around your ear, these function like your standard headphones, with a mic for taking calls, and inline volume and playback controls. They don’t come cheap at $110, and you’ll have your choice of black, brown, white, orange, blue, or green. The specs seem reasonable, but since this is intended for being present both in your music and the outside world, you’ll have to be wary of how loud they are lest you want others listening in.
