First question is why someone hasn&#39;t thought of this first? No matter, Axent Wear, a tiny startup by two Berkley students are now on Indiegogo with a project that&#39;s basically made some people just go &quot;Shut up and take my money!&quot;</p> <p>Proof? It&#39;s only been the third day of the campaign and it&#39;s already fully-funded, nearly doubling its funding goal of US$250,000 ($317,610).</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cat lover, otaku or perhaps Deadmau5 fan magnet </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Now, lest you think these headphones are just cat ears stuck on top of headphones, you get a lot more for your money. The headphones themselves can either be wired or wireless, with a removable cord as well as a USB charging port.</p> <p>As to the sound driver, the Axent Wear headphones use a 40mm driver with a 20Hz to 20KhZ range, which is a pretty decent standard with the 40mm giving you access to the lower-end of tunes.</p> <p>The cat ears are also not just for show. They&#39;re actually functional speakers, albeit cute ones. Basically you have the kind of headphones that will glow even in the dark with funky coloured lights - red, blue, green or purple, depending on which colour accent you choose. The purple headphones seem to be the most popular at the moment of all the Indiegogo campaign picks.</p> <p>How much for a pair? Considering that the price includes shipping and tax all over the world, US$150 (S$191) does not seem quite a bad deal. But just a caveat, this being a crowdfunding effort, the element of risk is there. So crowdfund only if you dare.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: </strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/what-your-headphones-say-about-you/feature">What do your headphones say about you?</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/axent-wear-cat-ear-headphones" target="_blank">Indiegogo</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UJugaD6rs2g" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/these-cat-ear-headphones-are-otakus-dream/news#comments Crowdfunding Geek accessories Headphones Fri, 10 Oct 2014 05:49:53 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1449856 at http://www.stuff.tv Parrot Zik 2.0 is now slimmer and prettier http://www.stuff.tv/sg/parrot/parrot-zik-20-now-slimmer-and-prettier/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> But looks will only get you so far in this game, you mark our words </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/main_4.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/fraser-macdonald" title="View user profile.">Fraser Macdonald</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>I&rsquo;ve already got some decent headphones.

And a little chunky, too. But that&rsquo;s been refined for the 2.0s. Philippe Starck is still involved in the overall design, but they&rsquo;ve slimmed down from 325g to a more lug-load compliant 270g. The soft-touch plastic has been replaced by a leathery something, and the cups have been made more comfortable. But it&rsquo;s not all colour and cosiness, the new versions are yet more capable of conjuring up a capital cacophony.</p> <p><strong>Well, that&rsquo;s good to hear.</strong><br />The headphones have no fewer than eight microphones for measuring ambient noise levels, as well as a bone conduction microphone for better voice clarity during handsfree calls. There&rsquo;s a better DAC onboard, and an improved Android/iOS app that lets you muck about with the equaliser and noise cancellation levels. That is, unless you&rsquo;ve downloaded your favourite band&rsquo;s custom EQ &ndash; a original Zik feature that continues with the new version. The swipy touch-sensitive music controls on the headphones also remain.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/4_13.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/3_17.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Hmm, lots going on.

But at least the &pound;230 (S$475) price tag is on the money for big tech drum-bumpers like these.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/vertu/vertu-breaks-new-ground-hp-1v-headphones/news" target="_blank">Vertu breaks new ground with HP-1V headphones</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/2_13.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/parrot/parrot-zik-20-now-slimmer-and-prettier/news#comments Bluetooth Headphones Headphones Hot Stuff Parrot Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:53:38 +0000 Elissa Loi 1449830 at http://www.stuff.tv The MDR-Z7 headphone is Sony's love letter to audiophiles http://www.stuff.tv/sg/sony/sony-mdr-z7-headset-made-audiophile/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If you’re in the pursuit for high-quality sound, the Sony MDR-Z7 might just do the trick </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="The MDR-Z7 headphone is Sony&#039;s love letter to audiophiles" alt="The MDR-Z7 headphone is Sony&#039;s love letter to audiophiles" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/sony.jpg.jpg?1412259076" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>From dubstep to disco &ndash; pick your music style and groove to the tune on Sony&rsquo;s flagship high-resolution audio headset, the Sony MDR-Z7.

These are &pound;490 (S$1020) which &ndash;&nbsp;while hardly pocket-change &ndash;&nbsp;isn&rsquo;t out of this world pricey.

So they sound good?</strong><br />Well, they do sound better than a lot of headphones &ndash; but at the same time you can doubtless get superior performance from cheaper cans. B&amp;O&rsquo;s involvement adds some audiophile cachet &ndash;&nbsp;though dedicated vinyl-botherers will doubtless grumble about &quot;paying for design&quot;.

There&rsquo;s aircraft-grade aluminium and lamb&#39;s leather in the band, while the cups are made from a comfortable memory foam covered in soft, hand-stitched lamb&rsquo;s leather. They&rsquo;re a lot more understated and stylish than some of Vertu&#39;s previous handsets, in other words. And they&rsquo;re made in England, so you&rsquo;d be supporting local business by buying them over some cheaper cans made in, say, Shenzhen.</p> <p><strong>They do look a bit bulky, though</strong><br />They&rsquo;re actually surprisingly light: just 230g. And they come in a lovely quilted magnetic carrying pouch, so you can put them in your bag without having to worry about a stray set of keys scratching them up.</p> <p><strong>Are they phone compatible?</strong><br />Of course, Vertu being first and foremost a phone manufacturer. Two cables are supplied &ndash; you can choose between audio only or audio with volume controls and in-line microphone.</p> <p><strong>And is there a button on the cable that calls a concierge for me?</strong><br />Now you&rsquo;re just being daft. If you fancy shelling out for a pair, you can buy them from a Vertu boutique (find your nearest one <a href="http://www.vertu.com/en/contact-a-boutique" target="_blank">here</a>).</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Two kinds of leather and aircraft-grade aluminium?

They even smell pricey, too; like a leather armchair or the interior of a sports car. Pop them on your head and they have a satisfyingly weighty feel; the memory foam cushions are comfy and block outside noise effectively, though the band is quite tricky to adjust when they&#39;re on your head.</p> <p>But how do they sound? Perfectly good, actually. Noise isolation is effective, the bass is punchy&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but not overwhelming&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;and there&#39;s plenty of crisp detail in the mid-range. There is a catch, though; they don&#39;t sound S$400 better than premium on-ears from other manufacturers like B&amp;O. Sure, you&#39;re probably not looking at these for audio quality alone; and the build quality of the cans is certainly impressive. Though the flimsy-feeling plastic 3-button remote lets the side down, rather; if you&#39;re not planning to use it for calls, probably best to pop off the magnetic ear cushion and swap it out for a standard cable.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-box-out-byline"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/stephen-graves" title="View user profile.">Stephen Graves</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/vertu/vertu-breaks-new-ground-hp-1v-headphones/news#comments Headphones Hot Stuff Vertu Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:34:16 +0000 Elissa Loi 1448328 at http://www.stuff.tv Mo-Fi's built-in amp brings new sound definition to your headphones http://www.stuff.tv/sg/mo-fis-built-amp-brings-new-sound-definition-your-headphones/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sure, portable tiny amps are easily available but the Mo-Fi lets you plug right into the music </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Mo-Fi&#039;s built-in amp brings new sound definition to your headphones" alt="Mo-Fi&#039;s built-in amp brings new sound definition to your headphones" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/mo-fi.jpg?1410851976" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Those look a lot like headphones. They look rather big.</strong><br />They are. But they&#39;re also kinda great. Blue Microphone&#39;s Mo-Fi, to be exact.</p> <p><strong>Blue Microphones? Huh?</strong><br />Mo-Fi is the brainchild of Blue Microphones, more known for their range of USB microphones that offer great sound recording in a tiny package. Great for the at-home podcaster or aspiring home studio musician. The company&#39;s taken its audio expertise and decided to design the kind of headphones they would want with a cute tagline to boot: &quot;Join the rebellion against headphone convention.&quot;</p> <p><strong>What&#39;s great about them?</strong><br />If you&#39;re an audiophile, you&#39;ve probably seen the little amps you can connect to your headphones. With dedicated over-ear headphones being bulky enough to begin with, adding more wires to the mix might annoy some but for them, the Mo-Fi might just fix things.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>&nbsp;</h2> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Like I said before, they look a bit big.</strong><br />To be sure the headphones aren&#39;t light, weighing nearly half a kg at 466g.</p> <p><strong>How sensitive are these cans?</strong><br />As to frequency range, the Mo-Fi has a respectable 15Hz-20kHz. But the heart of it is its built-in amplifier and what Blue calls its &#39;premium drivers&#39;. What the Mo-Fi aims for you to experience is like having a Hi-Fi strapped right to your head. Minus all those messy cables, of course.</p> <p><strong>How much tweaking to the sound can I do? </strong><br />Its inbuilt amp has three modes to choose from with what Mo-Fi promises to have no DSP tricks, it&#39;s all purely analog.</p> <p><strong>Are they comfortable?</strong><br />Design-wise, Blue took inspiration from a Formula One race car&#39;s suspension by making the Mo-Fi multi-jointed with ear-shaped ear cups. There is even an adjustable tension knob to fine-tune your comfort while wearing the Mo-Fi. Blue promises that the headphone&#39;s design will deliver a real seal for noise isolation, bass response and less sound bleeding.</p> <p><strong>Anything I need to know in case, I, hypothetically spend money on these?</strong><br />Unfortunately all that tech needs extra juice so the headphones also come with a battery that lasts around 12 hours, while taking three-to-four hours to charge. Even when the battery is low, though, the Mo-Fi can still run but on passive mode.</p> <p><strong>How much then?</strong><br />US$350 (S$442).

The earbuds are also sweat and water resistant with an IPX4 rating, and come with three sizes of ear gels and hooks for optimum comfort.

The free app recreates the look of typewriter keys and the loud sound effects, and offers additional virtual typewriters to wield via in-app purchases.</p> <p>&ldquo;I suppose some people who get the app may just be looking for a different sound, but really it&#39;s for people searching for a more personalized experience when writing on an iPad,&rdquo; said Hanks to USA Today, before charmingly adding, &quot;There&#39;s also the opportunity here to take your iPad to a coffee house and be really obnoxious with all the clickety-clacking.&rdquo;</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014/08/14/tom-hanks-hanx-writer-typewriter-app/13580367/?csp=tech">USA Today</a>&nbsp;via&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theverge.com/2014/8/14/6002055/hanx-writer-ipad-app-released-by-tom-hanks">The Verge</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hanx-writer/id868326899?mt=8">Tom Hanks turns video game developer with Electric City</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Hanx Writer" alt="Hanx Writer" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/hanx-writer.PNG?1408152869" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung acquires SmartThings for US$200 million </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Samsung made a big splash in the smart home market on Thursday by purchasing SmartThings, a company that specializes in connected home controllers that allow appliances and devices using different standards to communicate with each other.

Attach the Bluetooth tag to anything you don&rsquo;t want to lose (preferably inanimate objects), and when you can&rsquo;t find them, just hit buzz on the Protag app. What&#39;s next? Follow the sound to your misplaced item, or have the app immediately notify you if you&rsquo;ve left something behind.&nbsp;Works the other way around too by overriding your phone&rsquo;s silent mode when you activate the Duet. Tracks up to 10 different Duets so it&rsquo;s basically foolproof unless you lose all 10 and your phone at the same time.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Duet" alt="These Singaporean up-and-comers will be making us proud at IFA 2014" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/duet.jpg?1408432473" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> BITwave iclear </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>If you find yourself having to constantly ask people to repeat themselves over the phone thanks to years of standing next to club speakers, it&rsquo;s probably high time you invest in one of these Bluetooth-enabled headsets.
