As far as selfie sticks go, the FRiEQ Carbon Fiber selfie stick is a class act. The stylish chassis and telescopic arm make the product appear professional. However the Bluetooth shutter release battery came dead and there are no instructions included as to how to use it.
This Bluetooth device was a pleasant surprise. The high quality audio and compact design definitely stood out when surrounded by competitors who have too many wires. But the built in non replaceable AUX cable is a deal breaker for me.
The quality control issues that plague these microphones make what would be a great deal into a deal breaker.
The Volutz Equilibrium Micro USB cables are by far best cables I’ve gotten my hands on. The quality is evident from the moment I received the package.
The Audio Technica ATH-M30x headphones are lacking something, the oomph that makes music sound great. Perhaps my phone just can’t drive them properly, but I do notice the same issue running through my computer and my tablet. Some listeners will praise the treble clarity but most will be bass-hungry on their default settings. I would highly recommend stepping up to the M50X or looking at another brand.
While taking into consideration that the Takstar is by no means a professional mic, the audio from it is alright, with a good amount of warmth and punch. However, don’t expect miracles from it- because it is quiet, the mic works best in close range. I would suggest using it for vlogging, close-up interviews or voice recording on a computer. And keep in mind you’ll likely have to spend time editing out background hiss.
The Blu Win Jr has one of the worst cameras I’ve seen on a Smartphone made in the last 6 years. The front camera is somehow even worse than that. The camera requires the utmost care to get images that are acceptable and may not even be useful in an emergency.
The Blu Win JR is best for only the most basic of phone users. While it is extremely inexpensive, its terrible camera quality and underwhelming design will leave users quickly asking for more. With a retail low of $70, it could make a great burner smartphone but it doesn’t work for much more than calling and minimal messaging.
These headphones have been my daily driver for over a year now and are constantly proving themselves to be a decent set of Bluetooth headphones in their price range. For under $60 US, you absolutely can’t go wrong, especially if you love heavy bass. However, if you do purchase these headphones, treat them gently as the build quality seems a little questionable.
The main camera on the Blu Studio 5.0 II is passable. It’ll get the job done in daylight, but don’t expect anything near top tier smartphones. The secondary camera is low resolution, more of a web cam than a selfie cam.
