Klipsch in-ear headphones
utilize patented contour ear gels that are anatomically designed to accurately fit inside the human ear canal. These soft oval silicon tips reduce ear fatigue as well as provide an amazing seal for excellent noise isolation and bass response. Because ear canal measurements vary Klipsch headphones come with different washable ear gel sizes. Their ear canals are oval shaped, not round so they patented the exclusive oval ear tip for the absolute best in style, sound, comfort and fit.
The vision behind the buds came before buds - Paul Klipsch was a relentless perfectionist who spearheaded the Hi-Fi movement with the company’s foundation product: the Klipschorn (patented in 1945 and still manufactured today). A true music lover, Paul’s ultimate goal was to reproduce the excitement of a live orchestra performance in his living room. Since then, their products have evolved and they now manufacture and sell tiny headphones as well as massive professional cinema systems….and their renowned in-ear headphones.
They also do headsets which feature a 3-button mic and remote system to give you full music and/or voice control on compatible Apple products while delivering award-winning sound performance. In addition to
A few weeks after receiving Jolla’s first handset (called, er, the Jolla), I’ve posted an in-depth review of the Linux powered smartphone
over on Forbes.
All of that said, the Jolla handset has me excited. I’ve been following the project for some time, I ordered my device in May 2013 as part of the first wave of orders, and I knew that when it was delivered to me in December I was not getting a finished product… just a Finnish product. The Sailfish OS at the core of Jolla’s vision is delivering a stable environment and handles the mid-range specs of the Jolla handset relatively well. With another six months or so to iron out the bugs, improve battery life, and polish the user interface the core experience will be ready for the consumer market, as long as the first party apps are updated with the same attention to detail.
Jolla is not finished, but what is on offer now is going to be very appealing to the hackers of the smartphone world. It’s a phone that is more for geeks than mainstream…
The battles fought over display IQ, or image quality, are legend. Plasma claimed better blacks. LCD offered vivid colors. But if ever there was a 4K TV panel that impressed observers at CES 2014, it was the Sony Reference Standard, Sony XBR-X950B.
The Sony XBR-X950B offers deep blacks and vivid colors, boosted by what Sony calls X-tended Dynamic Range technology, which it says leads to “unprecedented brightness” and a “truly brilliant picture quality.” We definitely saw the higher peak white and deeper blacks Sony claims its technology delivers. That red dress in the picture above literally jumped off the screen.
Available this Spring, the 85-inch XBR-85X950B and 65-inch XBR-65X950B 4K Ultra HD TVs feature full-array local dimming (FALD) LED backlighting, Triluminous quantum-dot illumination technology, HDMI 2.0 with 2160p/60 capabilities, with decoding via the HEVC codec. The Sony XBR-X950B series also offers active 3D technology, Wi-Fi, screen mirroring with NFC OneTouch, and comes equipped with MHL 3.0.
Pricing was not announced but is sure to seriously tax your wallet but then again, what price glory?
Now in its fourth edition, Hollywood Meets Silicon Valley will bring together the brightest minds in entertainment and technology for a one day event in the heart of the Sundance Film Festival, Park City, Utah, starting today, Friday January 17, 2014.
Hermione Way started Hollywood Meets Silicon Valley Conference in 2011 and it is produced by Marcus Lovingood who is the founder and CEO of Futureleap Media. The conference aims to foster connections between leaders of the digital revolution and those driving innovation and change in Hollywood.
Lovingood is renowned for activating, cultivating and converting large online audiences into buying fans using social media and digital distribution.
Seasoned digital media executive Louise Hart, Founder and CEO of STEADY ON, (Sony Pictures, BBC) is co-producing the event and moderating the “Audience Building” panel, highlighting ways independent filmmakers are using technology to identify and distribute directly to their audience. One of Variety’s Top 10 Directors to watch, Justin Simien will be on the panel, talking about how he used NationBuilder to grow a community around his film DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, tipped by Entertainment Weekly to…
With an LCD screen on one side, and an e-Ink screen on the opposite side, Yota’s prototype smartphone was one of the big winners of CES 2013. Now, a year later, the handset is now on sale in a number of European territories. I’ve taken a closer look at the handset over on Forbes
The easiest way to think about the e-Ink screen implementation is that it is related but subservient to the main interactions on your smartphone. To set up one of Yota’s applications on the e-Ink screen you need to ‘send it to the back’ from the LCD screen…
In my time so far with the Yota Phone, the answer is yes. By virtue of being e-Ink, the second screen is always on, drawing very little power, and Yota’s customizations of Android and their own apps which use the screen prove the concept works. With just the e-Ink screen I’ve been able to navigate around Edinburgh, check my diary and upcoming appointments, follow my favourite websites via RSS, read a number of eBooks, control the playback of music on my smartphone, and naturally see what the time is. All without powering up the

While most GPS systems either work in your car (built in or can sit on top of your dashboard), there are others that are smaller and more convenient for travelers and Garmin is a leading brand in this area as most people know who have researched the category.
The Garmin HUD
is only 9.77 ounces and allows you for more hands free, since it puts GPS directions, ETAs and traffic alerts right where you can see them: on the windshield. The HUD, which stands for “heads-up display,” pairs with your smartphone and gets data from an app that will set you back around $60. The device is: $150;
