This review is from: Monster Digital USBOM-0032-L Black USB 3.0 32GB Flash Drives - 2 Pack
Pros: Very small form factor; very light wight; metal case; formats to 28.8GB.
Cons: The Monster Digital 32GB has a sustained throughput when writing a large file and attached to a USB 3.0 port (Win8.1, i7 processor) at a varying inconsistent rate between 11-16 MB/sec. Gets very warm to the touch during sustained writing. No activity indicator light. Don't understand the need for the uUSB port - none of my Android phones will discover a memory stick with a uUSB connector. Clear plastic uUSB cap is very hard to remove. Lanyard hole is VERY small - none of my lanyards will pass through.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Philips SHB9100 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones - Black
Pros: Good value a $30.
Cons: Sound quality Bluetooth vs sound cable.
Other Thoughts: The Philips SHB9100 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones easily connected to my desktop WIN 8.1 PC using an old (circa 2006) Zonet USB Bluetooth adapter. The PC switches over from the desktop speakers to the headset when the headset is turned on.
The Bluetooth sound quality is O.K. with adequate volume, slightly weak bass. Some base improvement can be configured from the Windows Control Panel, Sound, Playback, Headphones, Headphone Properties, Enhancement panel.
Sound quality improves when used with the 3.5mm audio cable.
Paired OK with a LG cell phone and an Apple iPad. (The bigger issue is getting the headset to “un-pair” from a device once paired so that the headset can be paired with another device. Probably not the fault of the headset.)
The earphones are on-ear with a good seal, good isolation from outside noises and from sounds escaping from the headset.
The headband is somewhat tight and pressure on the ears, especially for someone wearing glasses, can get little uncomfortable.
Because the headset is not surrounding the ears they will not stay on unless the band is worn directly overhead (no placing the headband behind the neck).
The micro-USB charging cable is very short and is a charge-only (no data) cable. Don’t discard it – use it for charging a phone or tablet in a risky environment to prevent 'Juice-Jacking'.
I have not needed to try the headset microphone.
Can’t find anything about changing the rechargeable battery – guess the headset is disposable once the battery dies.
The headset serves its’ purpose – letting me listen to PC sounds while sharing a home office with my spouse. I can live with this headset at $30 – but would probably have been disappointed if I had paid much more.
