Jaybird X3 Review: Best Bluetooth Earbuds!

This is a genuine review of Jaybird X3, the super portable bluetooth wireless earbuds connected by a wire unlike the more expensive and also delayed Apple earbud. The extras are definitely an incremental improvement to the Jaybird X2's which makes sense because it's not like their smartphones where's new features to add every year. So these will be very familiar to those of you who have seen the X2's were in the original jaybird bluebuds X, which is fine because those are also both pretty good. 
Jaybird X3 Review 1
So the first off all, the new shape is different. It's a bit of a new design, if you look at these earbuds, they're a bit smaller in volume than last year with X2's and a bit shorter and also a bit lighter which helps with comfort and the most important part of this back is that there are now flat on the back. So the X3 are now what I'll call sweat proof so while the excuse had sort of a rounded bulbous back that would stick out of ears more. The X3 buds stick out a bit less and they don't get caught as easily. So if you have like a winter hat to put on over the top of your buds that works better if you had like a motorcycle needed to go under a helmet this new design helps a lot with that too and then the shape of the fins as well which I do use are also slightly more curves which helps with the fit and they're already pretty good and not falling out of my ear but this helps even more and the sort of passive seal that forms over your ear is extremely good even with the rubber tips that I use but as you can see they do come with both the rubber tips in different sizes and comply foam that molds to your ear and gives you an even better seal.

JBL T150A Review- Budget Earphone With Kickass Sound

Hello, how are you guys? Here is the review for the JBL T150A and these are budget oriented earphones and they also have integrated microphone and the best thing is that it does not cost a lot and the sound quality is actually nothing sort of amazing considering the price point and the MRP on the box is about Rs.1800 about these earphones are available in India on online stores like Amazon between 700 to 800 rupees.

So the earphone comes in box and apart from the earphones itself, we also get extra eartips so a total of three, one is sort of pretty attached as you can see and when we talk about the build quality, the build quality is totally plastic but it has said quality and as you can see these are in-ear and I have to say in terms of comfort they do provide comfort and moving to the wire quality, the wire quality is also decent it's adequately thick I would say but it's not a braided cable and it also has a microphone and a single button to take calls and moving to the headphone jack slightly it's not angular to straight jack and her work with most smartphones.

Top 5 Best Headphones Under $200

What is up guys? I've been really into a few pairs of headphones recently. I've been getting more into the audio game and also by getting into this audio stuff I have found that a lot of people never really get to listen to their music on anything other than the earbuds that come with their phone. Maybe the classic earbuds that come with the iphone and that's fine for a lot of people but once you first listen to a actual decent pair of good headphones you'll never want to go back to those old iphone earbuds probably ever again, plus it's you know it's about to be the back-to-school season so why not! Everyone's got a budget maybe you want to get a new sweet pair of headphones to go with your new back to school laptop. Here are the top 5 headphones on my list for under $200 bucks. 

Number 5 is the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro, now these are really likable headphones and they're actually a great introductory set of headphones to anyone who's getting their first nice pair. I would say that pretty much all of it is likable. I'd say it's very comfortable, they actually sound pretty good and actually really good looking headphones for one's. 
Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro
A lot of these headphones aren't the best looking but you can actually customize the actual side plates to get a different sort of pattern or color look if you want. So those are nice and the the real custom feature that sticks out about thecustom one pro is the tunable base sport. So if you're used to a more bass heavy booming sound, you can open up the bass port on the bottom of the headphones and get that. If you don't like all that Base you want a more high and mid-friendly sound, you can close up the baseboard and get that sound. So that's pretty much the only pair of headphones that I recommend that actually has this feature and it's definitely under 200 bucks which is really nice.

Bose QC35: Best Noise Cancelling Headphones?

This is the Bose Quiet Comfort 35, the QC 35. These are the successor to I guess pretty much the gold standard for premium noise cancelling headphones at this point which is the Bose QC25. These obviously you know the red and black so we got some color we're going on with them but he's been my go-to for you know train rides and flights for the past couple years so naturally when you get a successor to them you can have to wonder you know what's different about them and are they worth the difference in price.

On amazon right now the QC25 are 300 bucks and the new QC 35 are 350 bucks. Now in a pair of really premium noise cancelling headphones you look for a couple things. Build quality, comfort, sound quality and of course how good the noise cancellation actually is. Now build quality is just fine here is nearly identical to the QC25. There are pretty overall lightweight pair of plastic built headphones pretty flexible and that's actually what makes them so comfortable that they're so light and flexible and along with the super soft foam on the top band and the supersoft leather ear cushions that go over your ears all this combines together to make them really comfortable.

TOP 7 Best Microphones For Recording Vocals

So, you are a singer. And are saving your pocket money for a year now, you have finally decided to get yourself a microphone. So, the first thing you do is go online and place that order you always wanted to. But wait! You’re struck. There are so many of them. And all of them have great specific ons and features. How do you find ‘the one’ that is made just for you? You scratch your head, your shout and you kick that innocent table; but none of it really helps you. You finally google ‘which microphones should I buy?’ And are visiting multiple pages which confuse you more than they really help you. Just when you are about to give up and sale for the not-so-good microphone you happen to visit this page.

Well, look no further, cause we have done all the hard and boring work for you. We went through the best of microphones available in the market and narrowed down our list to the top 7 of them, to help you make the right decision. Are all, you are one of a kind and need the best to nurture your potential.

Having said that, read on to find ‘the one’ for you. The First On The List:

Shure SM57 (Type: Dynamic)
Well, this one’s legendary. If you really want to go for the best and not look for the budget, stop reading further and take this one home.

To begin with, it comes at Rs. 6800 (roughly $105). This is the cheapest it gets. Its buyer-friendly price along with its great features makes it a #1 pick.

Effective Polar Pattern:
First things first, the Shure SM57 has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern that does a great job in minimizing the background noise while focusing only on the main sound, which would be yours. So, even if someone happens to make some noise around you in the middle of your breath-taking performance, you wouldn’t have to worry.

Great Frequency Response:
It has a great tailored frequency response. It ranges from 40 Hz to 15 KHz which works if you are a guitarist.

This one didn’t get your attention? Never worry, we have got a lot more in store for you. The Second On The List But No Less Than The First:

The Rode NT1-A (Type: Condenser)
Priced at Rs. 17,900 ($288), The Rode NT1-A comes with an efficient cardioid pattern too and what makes it stand out from our #1 contender is its superb combinati on of high quality sound and its overall popularity. This one’s for you if you are not bound by your budget limitations. Rode NT1-A is the most sought a er microphone for home studios.

Extremely Light:
It weights at about 326.00 gm which is extremely light for a microphone having these features. Its lightness is what makes it compact and handy.

Ultra Low Noise:
The Rode NT1-A has a self noise of only 5dB (A). So you can rest assured that the microphone will not add its voice with yours.
Now that we have had a look at the best ones, it’s me to move on to their alternatives. The SM57 and NT1-A are the best of their categories that is, in dynamic and condenser type.Clearly you are not happy with the top two, or maybe you are and you still want to know what the other five on the list are. Well then go ahead and take a look at our other five.

Shure SM7B (Type: Dynamic)

Yes, this is the one that was used by Michael Jackson to record vocals for his Thriller LP. Need we say more? For quite some me now, the above stated fact has helped market the SM7 series on its own. And what more marketing could it need? The latest in the series is SM7B.

It comes with a flat, wide ranged frequency response (50 Hz to 20 kHz) accompanied with a bass rolloff and mid-range emphasis control. Highly effective pop filters does help in eliminating explosive breathe sounds, more so for close-up vocals.

The SM7B is available at Rs. 46,599 (roughly $752), which is not much considering the ‘King Of Pop’ himself used this to record one of his greatest works. 
The other dynamic one:

Top 7 Best Computer Speakers Between $100-400

1. AVerMedia Ballista Unity Gaming Speakers 
In the midst of your gaming world lies an incredible auditory journey. Unity speakers are the guide through this adventure. Game audio is distinct from home theater or any other audio types, and your speaker system must be attuned to this world. No warrior steps onto the field of combat without a weapon of resonance. Unity prolongs optimal sounds long after your game is finished. Configured specifically for gaming environments, you'll encounter crystal clear high frequencies and rich throaty bass sounds with lessened distortion. This is the sound of gaming come to life.It is developed  with total 40W you’ll encounter crystal clear high frequencies and rich bass with lessened distortion.This is very good for gaming too,The full range subwoofer combined with intense mid and clear high tones delivers  a true to life gaming audio.The volume and headphone jack as well as adjustable bass control to allow for quick adjustments to enhancec sounds to suit various games.It can be wall mounted theese solid base and built in keyhole accomodates flexilble setup options With the added extended cable, mount and set up your satellite speakers with ease.

2. Logitech Z623
It is very sturdy,attractive speakers,plenty of power and perfectly decent clarity is shown.The setup is definitely a step up from the Z2300s design-wise. Although I think the “puck” setup can be nice if done right, the on-satellite controls make for less cable clutter, and the Z2300’s puck felt like a piece of junk anyway. These speakers have a much more solid feel, though some may have preferred a screen in front of the grill and prominent THX branding. The matte black finish and exposed grills are nice in their own way, though, and the satellites have a substantial but pleasing shape. The subwoofer is kind of a beast: 12″ wide, 11″ tall, and 9″ deep doesn’t sound so big — until you try putting it under your desk.I feel the Z623s have a relatively small sweet spot, being somewhat directional rather than room-filling. You lose a fair amount of definition outside perhaps a 30-degree cone, which is to be expected. Unlike truly directional speakers, though, you won’t need to sit at a certain angle to enjoy your songs. Stereo separation and location is excellent; these are great for gaming.The Z623s are definitely worth your money, at least if you don’t need surround sound. They’re powerful, can be made to produce great sound with a little tweaking, and are convenient for a desktop setup. 

3. Genius Hi-Fi (SP-HF500A) 
This brings you new two-way Hi-Fi wood speakers in a total of 14 watts, SP-HF500A. With a tweeter inlaid, SP-HF500A delivers crystal clear treble in a small space. The system combines 3” speaker driver with improved sound structure design to deliver great bass.

For more detailed information, contact your local sales representative.It has a line-in,headphone jack and volume control.The package comes with 2 piece of speakers and an multi-language user's manual.

4. JBL Pebbles Plug and Play Stereo

The new JBL Pebbles 2.0 audio system raises the bar on your computer entertainment experience, with one-step USB plug and play. Its compact, award-winning design incorporates smart cable management that keeps your table clutter-free. A built-in rotating volume control syncs with that of your computer.

Available in a range of striking colors, the JBL Pebbles is truly designed to please.Very nice sound for the size and price. Some midrange presence and a bit short on the highs and of course the bass given the size a great choice. Good volume too without distorting.

5. Bose Companion 20
Proprietary technology and an advanced port design make your music, games and videos come alive with striking clarity and impressive low notes at any volume. And all that sound pours from just two speakers—no need for a bass module. With a few quick connections, you can enjoy the wealth of content on your computer with rich Bose sound.An advanced port design and powerful drivers are key to the low-note performance that adds depth to music, games and videos. Anyone listening for the first time might scan the floor for a subwoofer, but there's none to be found. All the sound comes from just two sleek speakers.A unique control pod pairs a fair amount of function with its form. The pod features rotational volume control and one-touch mute functionality, plus convenient dual inputs for connecting headphones and/or a second audio source.

6. Bose Companion 5
You'll find theater like sound on your desktop.Five-speaker systems are great for home theater—but they’re not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. That’s why we developed Companion 5 speakers. They’re designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module . You’ll hear multichannel sound in a way that seems to surround you—without the clutter of five speakers. And setup is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.It is Specially engineered speaker arrays come fully assembled on stands for optimum performance and more usable desktop space.There is Active electronic equalization balances low, mid and high frequencies for more natural tone and clarity.A Compact Acoustimass module provides clean low frequencies, allowing the desktop speakers to be very small without sacrificing performance. Module can be hidden neatly under your desk.Single USB connection links the system to your computer. No special software, sound card upgrade, adapters or complicated wiring needed.Proprietary integrated signal processing delivers lifelike performance at almost any volume level.

7. Logitech Z906
Although this 5.1-channel home cinema package is primarily intended for use with a PC, it’s equally at home in an AV environment thanks to its generous range of connections and features – particularly its THX certification, which means it satisfies George Lucas’ exacting standards for movie playback.As for the subwoofer, it’s cube-shaped and compact, which shouldn’t pose major problems whether you’re shoving it under a desk or behind the TV, and is styled to match the satellites. It’s a side-firing design with an 8in driver, and is equipped with audio decoders, a 165W amplifier and all of the system’s connections.These include three digital audio inputs (two optical and one coaxial), which will come in handy if you want to connect multiple sources simultaneously (a DVD or Blu-ray player, Sky box and games console for instance). There’s also a six-channel direct input for connecting PCs, an analogue stereo input and a 3.5mm input for MP3 players and the like. There’s also a panel of springclip terminals for the supplied speaker wire, and these are also found on the back of each speaker, instead of binding posts. It’s a shame there are no HDMI inputs or HD audio decoding, which would have made this more suitable for use with Blu-ray players and games consoles.

One of the system’s most appealing features is the control console. This is a small desktop unit that plugs into the back of the subwoofer and allows you to adjust the volume, switch between the various sound modes and adjust the levels for each channel. This is obviously of greater use to those using the Z906 as a desktop PC system, but when using it in a traditional home cinema configuration you can use the supplied remote to control those settings, so either way you’re onto a winner.The console features a large volume dial in the middle, surrounded by a ring of LEDs that indicate the volume level and flash when in Mute. To the right of the dial is a curious-looking cluster of orange lights that represents the layout of the speakers in a traditional 5.1 setup – the point of this is to show you which channel is selected when adjusting the levels. 

On the other side of the dial are rows of lights indicating the currently selected input (each one numbered to correspond with the rear panel) and the current sound mode.These modes enhance stereo signals with different effects. They include Stereo 3D, which adds a ‘3D’ surround effect through all speakers; Stereo 4.1, which plays the stereo signal through fronts, rears and sub; and Stereo 2.1, which plays the signal through the fronts and sub. You can, of course, turn them all off and listen to sound in its natural form. Although its connections and decoding fail to cater for HD audio formats like Dolby True HD or DTS HD Master Audio HD, the Z906 can decode regular Dolby Digital and DTS bitstreams through the digital inputs.The speakers boast a frequency range of 35Hz and 20kHz, and each one features a 3in polished aluminium phase plug driver. Once you’ve got over the rather cryptic method of adjusting levels, the system is easy to use. The supplied remote is small and buttons are sparse, but this simple array covers every function – volume, mute, and input, level and sound mode selection.Its price is $379.00.
