Not many people in these times have heard of the vintage record player. So if you are young and want to buy one then this means that you are a music and sound enthusiast. While this is completely justified, a lot of people also wish to buy this type of product simply due to impressive aesthetic qualities. It is no secret that these devices hold huge value when a person is decorating their home. A product with a horn design in particular provides a timeless solution for the room and it ensures that the vintage turntable becomes the centerpiece of the room.
To be honest, there are more people who buy a vintage turntable for this reason rather the former one. There are also people who want the best of both worlds and wish to buy the device as a decoration piece but will also be playing a vinyl record with it in the background. Regardless of your intention, buying vintage record players with a horn is a very good idea as it adds a certain appearance to your room.
The horn provides a completely different dimension to the turntable and ensures that it is superior when compared to the standard “suitcase” design. This means that we now know that we need to look at vintage turntables with this feature. However, finding one is one of the toughest tasks you will face.
This depends on whether you want to buy a used one or a new vintage record player that has antique design but comes with the latest technology. Finding an old design is possible but there are no guarantees because you will have to keep on searching. Going to yard sales and searching through online marketplaces might make this possible. However, if you want to buy a new one then there are some good vintage turntables available.
One of the best vintage record players that satisfies these conditions is the PTCDCS32BT made by PYLE. As soon as you see this device, you will want to own it. I say this with so much confidence because this is exactly what happened to me. This design really is impeccable and it looks like an antique that will provide that finishing touch to your room. The horn is partly responsible for this because it combines with the turntable really well and makes the product appear to be extremely elegant.
The design is not the only thing worth talking about because there are plenty of other impressive features. As mentioned above, this is a new device that has the look of an antique record player. This means that it has all the latest technology that will make it much easier for you to listen to your music regardless of whether you are using a vinyl record or another method. To elaborate on this, the PTCDCS32BT has a Bluetooth feature that will allow you to connect it and play music via a Bluetooth device. In addition to this, it has a built-in CD and cassette player. This means that if you have any old CDs or cassettes then you will easily be able to play these. The cassette dock is a big deal because you cannot find these anywhere so people often cannot play their old favorite cassettes. The PTCDCS32BT is a vintage record player that will provide the perfect solution.
Some of these features combine with the looks perfectly in order to ensure that you are getting a high quality and an important device that will provide a different experience for you.
The improvements in the smartphones industry are on an upward trend and this is comparable to the rise in the popularity of music streaming and the demand for sound perfection. This can only mean one thing and that is the designing of most kinds of technology to meet these demands.
This is where we discuss the best smartphones that we can expect big things from!
The number 1 position goes to HTC One M9, which has followed up after the very successful HTC One M8. The best thing is that despite this success, we’re still looking at some major improvements in the newer model. There’s nothing I can say about the sound of this smartphone because it’s nothing short of brilliant. We have large dual speakers at the top and at the bottom of the screen too. These combine well with the BoomSound technology to deliver loudness that you’ve never experienced before. The speakers are also conveniently located at the front so that the sound comes towards you rather than away from you.
Second place goes to Sony Xperia Z3, which does produce sound that is of a much lower quality to that delivered by the M9. However, this is still much better to most other smartphones on the market. The good thing about all of this is that you can use several methods to enhance the overall sound. One of these includes the use of high quality headphones, which should greatly improve your music listening experience.
Lastly, we come to the Vivo Xplay 5, which is a model that’s not widely available outside of China. It probably isn’t that great as a smartphone but the sound quality is superb due to some crazy audio chips integrated into the phone.
I think we have a clear winner and that is HTC’s flagship One M9 model. If you listen to a lot of music but are finding it difficult to hear decent sound quality then try out the M9!
I have probably given off a lot of vibes that I really love running and how I use music to make things interesting. I also tend to test lots of different things to help me improve my performance.
As you are probably aware, the Apple Watch has been getting a lot of attention these days. But I have been looking at this interesting device with different intentions when compared to most other potential customers. The first of these is using this watch instead of my regular mp3 player. This would allow me to ditch my iPhone and run with just a watch on. The only thing is that you cannot actually connect wired headphones with the watch as there isn’t any input for this. This means that you have to use headphones with Bluetooth wireless headphones instead.
I actually tested this out last week. I wore my watch, left the iPhone at home and picked up my Jaybirds Bluebuds Xs, one of my favorite Bluetooth headphones for running. I must admit I was quite impressed with the results. When I bring my iPhone along, I always seem to have it in the back of my mind. I regularly glance at it in case it fell out or if it remains secure in my armband. But this wasn’t the case when I was wearing my Apple Watch. I admit that it allowed me to focus a lot more. This means that I’ll probably be using this watch quite a bit.
While reading a couple of random topics on an android forum yesterday, I came across something interesting. Basically, I saw an image of a wireless mouse being used with an android phone. Now initially, I was surprised because I asked myself why anybody would want to use a mouse on their touch screen smartphone. Well, I didn’t really come up with any answer to this question because I certainly wouldn’t do this but I did find it to quite a cool trick. This is because most people wouldn’t even think that this was possible.
So anyway, after having looked at the image, I looked into this a little further. This is because as with most things on the Internet nowadays, the image could’ve been the result of a Photoshop project maybe?
After reading a few articles and watching a couple of YouTube videos, I found that this was all correct. Not only can you connect a mouse with your android smartphone and tablet, you can also connect your keyboard. I think for those who are travelling with a tablet, this could be beneficial. To do this, all you’ll need to do is have the keyboard/mouse powered on and then make the connection with the device through Bluetooth settings.
If you don’t have a wireless keyboard or mouse, you can even make the connection with a wired product through a USB OGT cable. If you want to connect both accessories at the same time then you’ll need to buy a USB hub.
While it’s probably not the most useful thing to know about, who knows when this trick may come in handy for you!
There are so many Bluetooth headsets coming out. But most of these do the exact same thing – allow you to listen to music and use the hands-free feature while driving. Most of these headsets have tried hard to improve on the fit and overall call quality. However, the Bluewire is the latest entry into the market which takes a different approach.
The feature that makes this different to the rest is the fact that this headset actually has a SD card incorporated into the system. This will allow us to record up to 1000 hours of phone calls. While this feature won’t be useful for everyone, it would still provide an element of convenience. Who knows when you might need it. It would definitely be ideal for those that like to keep recordings of their phone calls. The good thing is that these recordings can be of phone calls or even your Skype sessions.
If you manage to record a call, the entire conversation will be recording on your smart phone. In fact, you’ll be able to access this through the Bluewire app. It’s by no means something revolutionary but I thought it was quite a handy feature and definitely worth mentioning on this blog.
Almost everyone is aware of the reputation built by Bluetooth headsets. The people who use them outside their homes have been made fun of in the past. This is the reason that we don’t see many people wear these sets in public. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t like to be speaking through a Bluetooth headset in public. People will probably look at me as if I’m talking to myself.
Despite the obvious limitations, there’s one thing that is quite clear. Bluetooth headsets do provide a huge feeling of convenience. The improvements in design and the addition of extra desirable features have placed these devices to the road of a comeback.
So what are the best Bluetooth headsets available these days?
If you’re planning on buying your very first set, then the LG Tone Plus would be a good cheap product to try. It’s quite cheap and fairly comfortable to wear. The battery is excellent while the design is simple yet convenient to wear. It does look pretty poor for design-conscious people though.
The mid-level Backbeat Go 2 made by Plantronics is another great Bluetooth headset that comes in the form of earbuds. It’s quite light and sounds good. But, the battery is quite poor!
If you’re looking to go for a typical Bluetooth headset design and are willing to spend a bit higher, then the Jabra Motion would be ideal. This has an amazing battery life. On top of this, the sound is perfectly clear. When you first put this headset on, you might experience some form of discomfort but this is something that you will get used to!
