Is it too early to think about going back to school? Yes? Maybe? Regardless, it’s not too early to think about new speaker equipment, and that’s why we’re giving away an Ultimate Ears UE Boom wireless speaker to one lucky AppleTell reader. The specific model is the UE Boom – Jettison Edition, a limited run designed by skateboard artist Don Pendleton, worth $199.99.
Griffin’s Wired Keyboard for iOS devices offers full iOS key functions and tactile feedback with the added advantage of a cord that makes connections and disconnections quick, easy, and positive, with no Bluetooth pairing required. The Griffin Wired Keyboard is available in 30-pin or Lightning connector versions, and connect to the iDevice (iPad, iPhone or iPod touch) via the docking port.
Ultimate Ears has released a few limited-edition runs of their UE Boom wireless Bluetooth speaker, the latest of which is a collaboration with artist Don Pendleton. Continuing the company’s aim to blend people’s passions for music, design and art, the limited-run Jettison Edition is designed with Pendleton’s distinct organic cubist graphic style.
Back to school. Three little words that are a delight to the ears of parents and the sound of unending doom to kids everywhere. Time is drawing near to get everything in place for the upcoming school year, and that may mean making sure everything is clearly marked and easily identifiable. Or, maybe you just want to organize your own life/work. In that case, Epson’s LabelWorks LP-600W label printer offers complete portability, allowing you to get organized anywhere that needs it.
If you’re looking for a portable speaker that comes at a fair price, be sure to check out the iHome iBN27 bluetooth stereo speaker. I couldn’t ask for better sound quality at this price point; the bass and treble combine for good sound quality in a compact system that’s designed for portability.
Remember back when office desks had ashtrays built right into them? Me neither, although I’m told they existed. It maybe won’t be long now before they have air purifiers built into them, so I guess we’re making progress. If you’re having trouble writing that into your contract, the Satechi USB Air Purifier and Fan should hold you over.
“Humlan…is an on-ear headphone for those of you who appreciate fresh laundry as much as you do good sound.” It’s rare I’ll start a review off with a quote from the company’s website, but I had to call attention to that line. I mean, I think I appreciate both, but this is the first time fresh laundry and good sound have applied to the same item. The Urbanears Humlan headphones are, in fact, washable…in part.
There’s a right height for your monitor, and your iMac or Cinema Display may not be at it. Adjusting your chair to hit it can leave you sitting uncomfortably, but staring down or up at your monitor can hurt your posture. The solution is a monitor stand. I’ve used and reviewed a few here at AppleTell, most of which concerned themselves with either looked good sitting under Apple products or with providing additional functionality. The UNITI Stand, now on Kickstarter, seems concerned with both.
I ask not because I’m about to present the answer, but because A-Audio claims to already have the answer, and they say, “Yes.” Their claim that headphones have become little more than a popular fashion accessory can certainly be backed up by watching any sports-related press conference these days, and they’re looking to provide a better balance between fashion and performance with the A-Audio Legacy headphones.
Somewhere between the structured placement of the laptop bag and the open expanse of a messenger bag is the need for a bag that is easy to carry around but has enough room for a day’s worth of items and accessories. It’s quite possible that bag is the newly announced Franklin Tote from WaterField Designs. This naturally-tanned, full-grain leather and nylon bag stows “… everything needed for busy day of innovation or recreation.”
With their Momentum line of on-ear headphones, it seems Sennhesier is looking to create an entire movement, not just a set of quality cans. I think they’re succeeding on both counts. The Momentum on-ear headphones offer excellent audio with a style that’s more about your personal tastes than those of whoever’s logo is on the side.
The new JBL Synchros E-Series headphones—whether in-ear to around-the-ear—combine JBL engineering with innovative features for every way of listening. The JBL Synchros Reflect and JBL Synchros Reflect BT in-ear headphones raise the bar on sport headphones with high-performance audio
