Choice is the Ultimate Luxury and Piel Frama Offers Plenty

image

People want to have a personal connection with their gadgets. A unique case is one way to further personalize this relationship. But you don't have to settle for different colored plastic cases that offer little in the way of protection or luxury. I have tried cases from Piel Frama before and always came away impressed. Their latest case for my iPhone 5s is a prime example of luxury and choice.



SMS Sync by 50 On Ear Wireless Headphones: Put Your Money Where Your Ears Are

image

Several years ago, I was at the Consumer Electronics Show, where a certain rapper stood side by side with the head of a certain audio cable company to announce a certain headphone business. Since then, countless headphones have been launched, often with the endorsement of celebrity rappers and musicians. Headphones have become more expensive than the phones and MP3 players they plug into. And recently, that original rapper took his headphone business and cut ties with that audio company.

These days much of my entertainment gets broadcast through a Lenmar speaker.

The new iPad Air is amazingly thin, light, and most importantly, fragile. Tylt aims to ruggedize Apple's new flagship tablet with the RUGGD case ($49.99), which does a bit more than simply protect your precious new tablet.



Phiaton PS 20 Noise Canceling Earbuds Review

Phiaton PS 20 Noise Canceling Earbuds ($49.99 on Amazon)

4 out of 5 stars

These earbuds are not only attractive, but they also block 95 percent of outside noise.

I received a review unit and was surprised at how well these earbuds worked. I never thought a pair of earbuds could accomplish almost the same thing as a pair of over-the-ear headphones.

Granted, I didn't get the same amount of noise cancellation as I do whenever I listen to my husband's pair of Bose headphones, but the PS 20 NC's were impressive nonetheless.

New audio accessories are constantly evolving for all iOS devices, and starting earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), there were some great ones in action. Most prefer something compact, with good quality sound, and affordability. An integrated app is nice, but not crucial. 

The Bose MIE2i wired mobile headset

 are perfect examples of earbuds that are compact, have great sound quailty and are affordable. They are highly rated for both sound quality and comfort. They come with three sizes of StayHear silicon tips and an answer/end button on the inline microphone. The reviews say the quality of sound is tops. Note that these are standard earbuds - no noise-isolating to block unwanted sound.
