Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones with Touch Control

The most advanced wireless headphones.

touch-wireless-headphones

I have a confession to make. I am not the biggest fan of big headphones. I always tend to opt for ear buds instead. However, I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t be jealous of whoever gets these Parrot Zik Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones with Touch Control. The awesomeness these headphones possess far outweighs the fact that they are… well, bigger headphones. Here’s what makes these so cool.

Wireless: Who deals with wires anymore? They’re annoying, they get tangled, and often short out. These headphones allow you to connect wirelessly to your mobile device and stream audio. Watch the video for yourself and see how simple setup is.

Noise Cancelling: If you truly appreciate music and want to listen to every little intricate detail, you need noise cancelling headphones. Otherwise, you’re missing out. This high performance, noise cancelling system developed by Parrot claims to cancel eliminate up to 98% of ambient noise, using 4 microphones both inside and outside each earpiece. (Typical noise cancelling headphones use 2)

Touch Control: No doubt the coolest feature these headphones have, that that are touch controlled. Taping on the right headphone allows you to answer or end calls, while touching the panel for 2 seconds will reject an incoming call. Sliding your finger horizontally on the control panel allows you to switch between two calls. And of course, it is incredibly easy to switch songs and adjust the volume. Touch is the way of the future, are your headphones on board?

These headphones also have an automatic pause/play feature. You simple take the headphones off your head and they will pause. Set them back on your head and your audio is back in business.

An Awesome Gift Idea

These headphones are the perfect gift for that person that loves their music or audio book and are available in 4 different colors.

Xbox One Released! How Did We Get Here?

Last Friday marked the release of Microsoft’s new gaming console,  the long anticipated follow-up to the Xbox 360, the Xbox One.

xboxoneFor years gaming systems have been primarily focused on graphics. Which makes sense. Graphics play a HUGE part in the gaming experience. However, over the last few years we have seen a huge push in integrating gaming consoles with web apps and streaming content from the internet. This made sense because people want access to their content on whatever device they are using. And if they have a gaming console that already connects to the internet for gaming, why shouldn’t they have the ability to stream content or access their Facebook page?

With the integration of gaming consoles and the internet, the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and even the Nintendo Wii became more than just gaming consoles. They became entertainment systems. In fact, at one point in time, I personally used my Xbox 360 to stream Netflix more than I used it for playing games.

When the Nintendo Wii was released, things got really interesting. Gaming became physically interactive. Another milestone that Sony and Microsoft took note of. The Xbox Kinect for the 360 was the next stage in physical interaction. The Kinect, of course, has the ability to pick up on users movements and even sounds without the need to hold a controller, something that has been re-engineered and improved upon with the Xbox One.

These and other advancements in gaming technology and user experience have led us to where we are today. The Xbox One has taken all of these concepts and built upon them, as I am sure the Playstation 4 will.

The Xbox One primarily builds upon the concept of voice control, TV, and social integration. We at Men’s Tech are excited to see how this gaming console war turns out.

More information on the Xbox One to come! If you have the Xbox One, let us know what you think!

Xbox One Console – Day One Edition

 

Mini USB-Powered Fridge Cooler

You have a few options when you bring a drink to work: You can let it sit at your desk, allowing it to get warm by the time you are ready to drink it. Or you can put it in the refrigerator in the break room.

The problem with the second option is that it can be inconvenient getting up and going to the break room to get a drink. Especially if the break room isn’t close.

Even if you aren’t necessarily as lazy as I am, we can all agree that we love convenience. And what could be more convenient than a USB-powered fridge cooler!

With the Mini USB-Powered Fridge Cooler, you will no longer have to worry about watching as your drink gets disgustingly warm.  You will always have an ice-cold refreshing beverage close by. To purchase your own Mini USB-Powered Fridge Cooler see the link below!
