Bose Bluetooth Headset

Now this is a product I wasn’t expecting from Bose, but I am happy that they came up with it. I have known Bose to make high quality headphones so it seems to me that they might make som very good Bluetooth Headsets, and in this case it seems that the test has proven the quality of them. I have added it to my Amazon Cart after reading the review with the details of the quality and easy of use with these headsets. Based on this statement “The audio quality is superb: clear, sharp and concise” I want this headset.

It also comes with the company’s, relatively, new StayHear tips, which also come with its current range of in-ear buds. The headset also has an easy to reach on/off slider, plus volume and call buttons, and a USB port allowing it to be charged via a laptop, computer or the supplied dedicated plug adaptor.

Playlist 10/10

While I was in California I picked up on a few songs as well as adding to the usual list. Eminem, Rihanna, with Lil Wayne topping most of list. I loved listening to these songs while driving and riding in California, good music blasting in the car and in my headphones. Enimen’s new CD is just amazing, I downloaded the whole thing a while ago but didn’t have a chance to listen the whole CD except on this trip, and Rihanna just keeps getting better and better. Enjoy the music.

Review: Beats by Dr. Dre Tour

I got these headphones a few months back now and have tried them a few times. I didn’t get the right sound except after switching out to the right tips. I tried out the Dr Dre Beats noise canceling headphones which were fantastic sound and bass, but its an over ear type headphones. Now these are the in-ear headphones and I have my Bose to compare them to. The Bose in my opinion fit better and have good base and sound and I like them a lot, the Bose were my baseline for trying out this headphone. Watch some TV shows, Movies, and Anime with these headphones and they are really good but lacking a little base.

Pros:

  • High Quality Sound
  • Very nice Design
  • A nice selection of tips to choose from to best fit your needs
  • Very high volume, higher then usual

Cons:

  • A bit pricy at $150
  • A bit lacking in Bass
  • You have to play around with it when it fits your ear to get that perfect sound
  • Sticks out a bit, doesn’t fit under inside my helmet

Playlist 10/09

retroheadphones

This is my latest playlist that I have been hearing nonstop in my car, and a few other iPods while I’m riding or driving very fast. Each song gets you worked up in a different way, they did a scientific study about the effects of music on people’s driving, with me I’m the live specimen, my driving style varies widely with the type of song playing and I have to have to music playing. There is the occasional head nod to the music or some movement if I’m in a good mood, but its funny seeing people’s reaction while in a dishdasha with Hip Hop & RnB blasting. The more the stars the more I enjoy the song.

Bose Tri-port Headphone Tips

I have been using these headphones for a while now and they have been working great. They keep out the sound of the annoying safety videos on planes while flying, I can hear clearly on the motorcycle, they don’t irritate the ears after riding some time and you can clearly hear a nice solid base in the head phones. The one annoying part is the tips, when ever I pull them out o my pocket or out of bag there is always a possibility that tip might fall off and this time I ran out of extra tips. I went onto ebay to find some headphone tips, they sell them in bunches so I bought 10 pieces of the medium size for $11 from a supplier in Hong Kong since their weren’t that many other choices, I’m just hoping that they are the same quality and fit, I’m worried they might be fake or might cause irritation at a later point but I really like these headphones so hopefully this will solve my problem of losing those tips.

Onkyo MHP-UW2

These wireless headphones are made specifically for iPod users and works on the 2.4Ghz bandwidth. The connection between the head phone and wireless unit is uncompressed so you get very good quality sound, the reciever is pretty big though. The controls are on the headphone and I do like the quality of Onkyo products, but oddly enough its being released in Japan first for $200.

Review: Bose TriPort In-Ear Headphones

I am always on the lookout for a good set of affordable bluetooth headphones that can fit comfortably in my ear. The main points for me are sound clarity, bass, and how they fit with a helmet on.

After a few reviews I checked out the Bose Triport In-Ear Headphopnes, the latest ones were revamped due to a few problems with the original release. I have found these headphones to be great, very good quality sound, fits perfectly in my ear and there are three sizes to the fitment (S, M, L). There is some decent bass from headphones this size, it isn’t something huge but you can clearly hear it and its perfect when riding. I tried it when I was riding the R1 with its loud pipes and I could hear my music clearly.

Pros:

  • Very good clear Sound (Updated Headphones)
  • Good Bass
  • Easy fit in my ear (S,M,L)
  • Highquality wire, doesn’t look like its going to cut easily
  • Reasonable price

Cons:

  • The rubber pieces fall off the headphones very easily.

Price: $85

The Shopping Cart

I always tend to postpone purchasing anything from Amazon for a little while until I have a few items. I was looking for a small tripod for use when I’m taking pictures and from a lot of recommendations I’m going with the Gorilla Pod, and this one is meant for DSLR Cameras. Then there are the head phones and after looking around a bit I decided to with the newly updated Bose In-Ear Headphones are my new riding headphones. Fat is a really funny sarcastic book about 3 people trying to drop their weight, and Managing Humans is about how a good engineer doesn’t make a for a good manager, just people skills.

B&O Headphones Out

I have had these Bang & Olufsen headphones for over four years now and it seems that they have just started to act up from all the abuse over the years. They have been my riding head phones for that whole period, I never started listening to music while I ride only since getting these head phones and they have been excellent. The sound quality is very good with decent base, and very little distortion, and the clip around the ear keeps it in place. I’m thinking about trying other headphones, but I’m also thinking about buying the same pair since they are available. With the current ones my right side isn’t functioning and the left side disconnects every once in a while, so I have to find a replacement soon.
