One 2 Try Review: Audiosharp AS1217 Metal Stereo Headphones

Everywhere you look, someone has headphones on. No matter where you are, we are a listening society. Music is important, phone calls are important, why not make it the best sounding it can be?

I have a variety of headphones from full ear covering to the ear bud styles. Many of them are Bluetooth capable. Most of the time, I have forgotten to have them charged up. For those instances, I always carry a wired set.

I have been listening to a very good in ear headphone set from Audiosharp. The Audiosharp AS1217 Metal Headphones are premium in quality and sound.

The design of the metal housing is modern and stylish. I love the bronze color, it is different from any other I have seen. They look sharp! Wearing them in my ears is extremely comfortable. Even though the construction is metal, there is no heaviness to them while in my ears. I tried the supplied different ear tips to get just the right fit. They stay in place during my normal activities, such as walking, working on the computer, housework, or any calm activity. They have never fallen out.

I am impressed with the sound quality. They are very good at isolating surrounding noise. I wear them while at my desk and I can not even hear the keyboard clicks right in front of me. All I hear is well balanced music sound. The bass is more prominent in this set which is actually my preference for listening. Not too much bass, just the right amount to enhance the music.

These are high quality in design, construction and sound quality all for a reasonable price! To me, these are as comparable to other high end earphones I have, at a fraction of the cost. Less than $30. That’s right…you can get the Audiosharp AS1217 Metal Stereo Headphones for less than $30 on Amazon.

Another plus – a zippered carrying case is included. The case makes it nice for tossing in a purse, briefcase, pocket or backpack. With no charging needed on this wired headphone set, the amazing sound quality, and the comfortable fit, these have been my must listen to headphones.

Everywhere. Yes that is me with my Audiosharp headphones on.

The weather is going to start getting warmer. My home depends on ceiling fans as we do not have air conditioning. Being close to the ocean gives us a natural cooling. Boy were there some super hot days where nothing worked to cool us off. My trick – I jumped out of the pool then laid under the ceiling fan while still wet. It was a crude attempt but it really did get me cool. Thank goodness for ceiling fans!

When it comes to ceiling fans, the Hunter Fan Company makes the most stylish fans ever! They have a style for every décor. Hunter Fan developed a way to come home to a cool environment. Introducing the Hunter SIMPLEconnect. It is a little man that lives inside your fan and turns it on for you. He is related to the little man that turns off the refrigerator light when you close the door.

SImpleconnect

Just kidding, the receiver of the Hunter SIMPLEconnect is easily installed into your ceiling fan (most fans with chain pulls are compatible). Once installed, the remote works on Bluetooth with an app that is available for both Apple and Android smart phones. Using the app, you can turn the fan on, or turn the ceiling fan light on (if you have one) and also schedule a time for it to come on. SIMPLEconnect!

Your Fan Can

Right now Hunter Fan is holding a contest – Your Fan Can Contest on their Facebook page. Snap a photo of your ceiling fan, submit it and have your friends vote for your photo.

Let There Be Light! OxyLED Dimmable Desk Lamp

November 25, 2014

Comments Off on Let There Be Light! OxyLED Dimmable Desk Lamp

logo1

DCBanner.jpg

I recently visited a very nice hotel with beautiful room décor. I fell in love with a desk lamp. The desk lamp was a touch control LED lamp with a sleek design. I had to have one. I promptly searched the internet for that brand lamp and found the object of my desire.

Choke….my beloved lamp was more than $400! Deflated, I had to settle for my LED bulb clip on lamp. Alas the good folks at HisGadget must have known I was still searching for my lighting treasure.

Courtesy of HisGadget, they sent me an incredible LED desk lamp. The OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp with Cool & Warm Color Light – Professional Reading Lamp is just what I was looking for and then some. This stylish lamp provides two color outputs to ease eye strain. I like the Touch controls for turning on the lamp. With a simple touch you can change your lamp color preference. Once you are in the color light you like, you can easily dim that color a few grades by pressing around the ring of the power button. The light holds steady without any flicker plus it fills my desk with a nice wide area of light! The stylish look fits my desk without taking too much room. I prefer the warm color most of the time.

Here is the light difference. Notice how much brighter the one of the left is. It has a bluish tint while the right has a warmer yellowish tint.

20141125_14151320141125_141532

The OxyLED Desk Lamp will provide over 25,000 hours of full lumen output, a 10 year life span. It comes with a 3 year warranty. It saves money too because it uses very little watts.

Looking for a very useful gift for the Holidays? Consider getting someone an OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp with Cool & Warm Color Light – Professional Reading Lamp. The price will astonish you. The list price is $149.99 but you can save 60% right now. The affordable price is just $59.99 on Amazon!  The lamp is just what any student, reader, desk hugger, would love to have.

I am thrilled with this lighting beauty! I can spend even more hours reading and at my computer now. (sorry, housework has to wait)

Comments Off on Neato Skins – Make your phone your own!

I get so bored with my phone. Not the phone but the case. I like to change things up every now and then. It can be hard finding the exact style of case. Now I can print my own skin designs with the help of Neato Skins.

Neato Skins work with by creating your designs online that you can print at home. The Neato Skins Kit comes with a practice print template, 5 blank Skins, a clear phone case, instructions and the code you need to create your design online. Neato Skins Kits are available for several devices including Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 and S5 plus Apple iPhone 4/4s, 5c and 5/5s. The starter kit comes at a reasonable price of $19.95 which is much less expensive than some cases! If you really enjoy creating the designs, they offer refill packs for just $14.95.

On to creating. I chose a few photos and poster graphics for my first set of skins. Using the online design software was a little confusing at first ( I could not see where to upload an image) but once I played with it, I navigated through the designing steps in no time.

It takes 3 steps to make your device personalized with Neato Skins.

Create – Use photos and text in the online software

Print – Your printer will print your design creation on the removable self adhesive skin

Apply – Peel the skin and place it on your device then place it in the provided case.

Simple!

neatodesign

I had a lot of fun creating my skins. I tried a bunch of different photos. I made two with all photo from edge to edge and one I made with a background color. There are lots of ways to design. Background colors, text, use your own photo and more. It is so unique! I know I will be ordering a refill kit because it was so much fun to do! Now I can change my device look whenever I want!

Out of my 3 designs I chose Dear Diamond….for now. That is the beauty of Neato Skins, I can change it or create a new one anytime! Brilliant! Think of the possibilities. You can make one for each holiday. Going to a special event like a concert? Make one with the band name or image. A special date? Happy Birthday or Anniversary or just as special day you want to remember. Moms will love having kids photos on their device. Make something funny! I like to have humorous pictures that make me smile each time.

Neato Skins Custom Device Labels are easy to use. I am so thrilled to have been introduced to Neato! Order yours today and make a statement with your own personal design. Your device will truly thank you.

The Snugg Cases – Protect your Electronics

August 16, 2013

Comments Off on The Snugg Cases – Protect your Electronics

DCBanner

Snugg logoAlmost everyone has some type of technology gadget these days. Tablets, e-readers, smartphones and more have become a main part of our everyday living. Did you ever think about how to keep those devices protected? It is important to protect your investment. Why pick something drab and boring when you can have The Snugg!

The Snugg cases are custom made to perfectly fit each of the devices they cover. The much needed openings are correctly framed in the case. No covering important input or output openings. Getting the right fit, protects the device correctly!

My hubby has had a Snugg for his iPad mini for quite a while now. He actually ordered it from Amazon. It has been more than 6 months with his cover and it looks as good as the first day. The material really is high quality. A mini interview with him about The Snugg:

“it opens with ease”

“the smart cover function works correctly”

“it is lightweight but offers superior protection”

“friends have asked about the cover”

I have always been jealous about his cover. For my iPad 2, I had just a cheap cover. It did not last very long at all. I am thrilled that The Snugg was so kind to send a cover my way. Now I am confident my iPad 2 is properly protected.

Exec Blue

The Snugg case for my review is the Snugg iPad 2 Executive Case Cover and Stand in Electric Blue Leather. For me, it makes it more fun when you have a little color in your techno world. I chose the bright blue because it pops in brightness. The leather is high quality and very comfortable to the touch. One of the many features I really appreciate on the Snugg is the Velcro strip that holds the tablet in place. It keeps it safe from sliding out! The Executive case offers the smart cover function when opening or closing plus it has a 2 position stand. It is perfect for any professional that needs to carry business cards. There are slots sewn in the case! I like to use a stylus with my tablet and this case has a stylus loop. I will never hunt for my stylus again. A big plus for me – the Hand Strap. When the case is open, the hand strap makes it very easy to hold on to comfortably and securely. The case adds only a small amount of weight but using it with the sturdy stand is a breeze, then you don’t have to hold it.  I know The Snugg will be long lasting! The Snugg Promise – they offer a Lifetime Guarantee on all their cases! Be sure to register on the website.

The Snugg offers cases for many devices at fantastic prices. The colors are stylish too! The Executive case I chose comes in 10 colors for the iPad 2. They sell cases for all the iPad versions and many more electronics. Placing orders is easy at The Snugg or you can also find them on Amazon. They are best sellers for a reason!
