I’m not a singer, so I have only tested this mic while speaking. In terms of build quality, the microphone is well made with a solid metal body but the shock mount feels a little cheap because it is made out of plastic. The kit includes an XLR to 3.5mm cable, a metal pop filter, the shock mount and an adapter for mic stands.
After a week of playing with the S7 Edge, I’ve decided that I’m going to keep my LG for now. Even as a professional photographer the difference in the rear camera is not noticeable enough that I want to move to Samsung. Perhaps it was all the hype that played it up, or perhaps it was something else, but while I was impressed with the camera on this phone I wasn’t blown out of the water.
The Solove battery pack is a great piece of equipment with a huge capacity and excellent build. I would recommend this battery bank for someone who likes travelling multiple days without access to mains power or wants a battery bank that’ll charge a phone or a tablet multiple times. It’s not a pocket friendly charger but it would go great in a backpack or for camping.
The Satechi Bluetooth gamepad has a similar look and feel to an Xbox controller. The button action is springy and the response of the triggers is great. I tested the controller with some playstation emulators and it worked great. After mapping the keys in the application it was just like playing the game on a real console.
The OVEVO Bluetooth headphones look great and the cable is the perfect length to not interfere while exercising. Unfortunately they are marred by poor audio quality that is heavily weighted towards treble. Forget any bass, it’s just a dull, uninspired blip in the background. Perhaps it’s sample variation, but unfortunately my copy just won’t work for me.
Tech deal alert!
The Sony A7, one of their older full frame mirrorless cameras, is currently selling for $398.00 USD at Adorama. This is a fantastic camera and an excellent bargain, especially if you can grab yourself a kit with the RODE mic included. Good luck!
Note: as of now, the items are no longer available to add to cart. You may have better luck than I did!
The Q9 headphones are an inexpensive set of Bluetooth headphones that look good and have acceptable audio quality with deep bass and rich mids. Fans of bassy music will like these headphones the most – their bass is strong, but at times can muddy the treble. They’re not at clear as my current favorite sport headphones, the Mpow Swift, but most won’t notice the difference unless they have the two sets to compare.
I gave a glowing review of this speaker because I think it’s great, but do keep in mind that is is a small speaker. At this price point it is possible to get a much larger Bluetooth speaker that will sound better. In comparison to other pocket speakers I’ve bought (and even some larger ones) this is the best sounding one I have tried so far. As long as your expectations are in line with the size and a compact speaker is something you are in the market for, you will likely feel the same way I do about it. It’s not going to have the oomph of something 10x its size, but it really does hit a good balance in terms of sound quality and size. It’s rare that I’m this excited about a product but I believe that my long search for the perfect small Bluetooth speaker is finally over.
This cable is a great idea and goes to show what the micro USB connector should have been. A few issues with the execution mean I’m not yet ready to replace my other micro USB cables just yet.
VR is still in its infancy and there are a lot of kinks that need to be worked out. I was all excited to receive a VR headset, but alas… On the surface, the Telmu VR headset is a nice offering, with a substantially better build quality than Google Cardboard (cause it’s made of plastic, who’d’a thought?), but that’s where the good things end. This headset is significantly heavier than cardboard and borders on downright uncomfortable on my face.
