Pros: These headphones have great sound capability. While I am not a fanatic about it, I have very good hearing and enjoy good quality sound. These headphones deliver on that promise. Sure, some reviews complaint that these headphones do not completely dampen all outside noise. I consider that a plus, since I sometimes walk with these headphones. I want to know what's going on around me. But they do tamp down the outside noise. Additionally, these headphone do provide some headset capabilities. If your phone supports it, it allows you to listen to music (or an audiobook), automatically pause, receive a phone call, and automatically resume (after the phone call ends) .. all without taking off the headphones.
Cons: These are on the ear, rather than around the ear, headphones. The manufacturer claims these are over the ear, but I'm sorry. These rest on my ears, not around them. This might be an issue for some users (with glasses with thick frames or with behind the ear hearing aids). Also the headset capabilities seem to be somewhat limited. I've not fully tested it, but they don't seem to allow two devices to be connected at once (I admit it might have been a driver problem, since I was twiddling with the bluetooth driver on my Windows PC at the same time). However, I do know they are not as functional as my Plantronics Voyager Pro headset. Still, they are not intended to be a dedicated headset. As such, these do adequately without requiring juggling the headphones when taking a call. If you are just looking for headphones, these might be a bit pricey. However, I find they deliver really good sound. That combined with a promotion made it an exceptional value.
Other Thoughts: The audio fidelity of a pair of headphones is - for most of us - a very subjective thing. If you are a full blown audio junkie you can measure their quality. However, I use a simple rule that if I can with a new pair of headphones hear new sounds on a familiar sound track, then that pair of headphones provides good to excellent sound fidelity. The more detail, the greater the sound fidelity. And that's definitely the case with these headphones.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 64GB MicroSD Extended Capacity (Micro SDXC) Flash Card
Pros: This little beast is just that .. a beast! With 80MB/s read speed, your electronics (camera, phone, etc) will not lag behind waiting to get at the data. And at 50MB/s write speed, storing data (photos, video, songs, etc) won't take but two shakes of a dog's tail.
Cons: Unfortunately, TANSTAAFL .. There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch!! This little beast is pricey. If you don't need the speed for your device, then look at a lower performance MircoSDXC card.
Other Thoughts: It's not really a negative, just something you need to remember. This is a MicroSDXC card. You need to be certain your gear can handle this card. If it's an older piece of tech, then it might only read a MicroSD card. Though the same size and shape, a MicroSD card reader can not read a MircoSDXC card. In the industry speak it is not "backward compatible". But there might be an adapter to allow you to read and write it on your computer. For example, enter "MicroSDXC adapter" in the "Search Newegg" box above.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small size. Fits just about anywhere! Adds speakers to those cases built without one.
Cons: Not the strongest construction. But at the price, who cares.
Other Thoughts: It's amazing how many cases are built without any speakers. It's not as if they are terribly expensive. Trying to save a penny might be important, but so is hearing the POST code beeps!!READ FULL REVIEW
