5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Real World BT Receiver, July 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are several hi fi BT receivers out there on the $200-$300 range that are probably more worthy of being plugged into your expensive stereo gear.

But let's face it: once you have stored your music in the cloud to stream from your mobile devices, you have just made significant sonic compromises in said music. At this point, the super expensive BT adapter is overkill, because you've already killed your hi-fi signal.

If you use one of the ultra-high resolution streaming services, or if you play nothing but lossless files stored on your device, a fancy Bluetooth receiver makes more sense.

But if you just want to play your Spotify stream on your stereo, this thing will do the job nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Performance, Shocking Price, July 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
there is an interconnect out there from Better Cables that really does sound better than this thing.

But for its intended use with compressed music on your phone or streaming from the cloud, you already have made so many sonic compromises that airtight connectors, single-crystal silver wire conductors and voodoo-enhanced Teflon shielding make exactly zero difference in what you will hear.

What you need is low resistance and reasonable rejection of magnetic and RF interference, in a well built package.

This cable gives you all that. A vanishingly small percentage of listeners to portable devices will ever need more than this.

I use it to connect the Logitech Bluetooth 4 receiver to my old 30-pin B&W Zeppelin iPhone dock. Many people ditched their old Zeppelins when Apple dropped the 30-pin connector for their newer Lightning connector.

Good fo me. I now have stylish and great sounding Bluetooth music systems in my bedroom and at my office, with the addition of Logitech's excellent sounding Bluetooth receiver and this cable. Have you seen the price of Bluetooth speakers? I got these Zeppelins from Craigslist at about $150 and then $40 in gizmos and cables later I am absolutely stomping the performance of Bose equipment that costs twice as much.

It's unfair really, sort of like drag racing a Camry against a Viper. And I got the Viper. These cables add no discernible noise or coloration to the sound, are tough and good-looking and inexpensive. If you like great sound and are looking for a Bluetooth speaker for your office, kitchen, bedroom, workout room, anywhere your main stereo isn't, this and a good BT receiver will let you snap up high quality "obsolete" Made For iPhone gear even if you have an Android or Windows phone.


Topeak Joe Blow Sport II Floor Pump

5.0 out of 5 stars So Far, So Good, May 18, 2015

Every bicycling household needs a floor pump. There are better ones out there, and there are cheaper ones out there.

But I have not fount a better floor pump cheaper. The Joe Blow Sport does its job well, the metal valve head works well and appears durable, and the built in pressure gauge is accurate.

This pump replaced a Schwinn floor pump that must be rated as do not buy. It began to fail within a month and was unusable after 3 months.

Joe Blow has been in faithful service now starting his second season. Works like new. A good sign.

We'll see if it is still working in 5 years.

This is built with similar quality and form to some other grabbers out there. It is tough and should last a long time.

But it does not perform its intended function as well as some others. I'm going back to my favorite brand.

My mother told me thirty years ago I'd be reading these. She was right. I inherited her first edition set (well, set of first editions). But for reading I got the Kindle edition.

The Army of the Potomac series is a must in the education of any American. Do yourself a favor and put it on your reading list.

nice, long, HIGH QUALITY cable that is 100% Apple compatible for less money than Apple charges for its crappy cables.

Caveat: has a larger plug than OEM cables and will not work with many cases. My minimalist Spigen has no problem but if you are running a Pelican or Lifeproof etc. then you'll have have to charge with OEM gear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain At Twice The Price, May 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This case does everything the Apple Smart Case does. It is thin and light and tough, fits the iPad Air 2 perfectly, magnetically sleeps and wakes the device and keeps everything light while providing great protection.

I have had it in constant use since November, and it still looks, feels and performs like new.

I would buy this case over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect For Me, March 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I don't know what kind of 17" notebooks these other reviewers have. My 17" Dell fits fine. Lining is soft and padded, giving good protection. There's a great mix of external zippered compartments and internal pockets.

I travel extensively. I need defined compartments/pockets for power supply, mouse, iPad, iPhone, USB chargers and lightning cables, mouse batteries, sunglasses, prescription meds, business cards, a padfolio, and an emergency change of clothing. Hat/gloves a bonus.

IT ALL FITS IN THIS BACKPACK, and it still fits under an airline seat. The Blizzard color scheme is always the only one on the plane. Nobody grabs my bag by mistake.

Materials and construction have proven top notch. If I could add one feature it would be a flat fabric loop on the face between the shoulder straps for sliding the backpack onto the extended handle of wheeled luggage.

The water bottle pocket works well for 20 ounce bottles or less. There is an elastic loop that you can cinch down on your bottle to hold it in place.

I shopped every brand of laptop backpack before settling on this model. It has exactly the amount of room and features I need, it is a unique, easy to spot color, and fits under an airplane seat.

You can get bigger or smaller, plainer or fancier. This one is absolutely the perfect size and model for my needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Go-To Headset, March 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you look through my reviews you will find a headphone junkie. I have many. My favorite lightweight is the Sony XBA single driver with iPhone controls. Cheap, tiny, sounds great. Weaker bass though.

I have many that match or exceed the price of this RHA headset. I listen to them all the time. But when I'm out, I usually have this RHA headset putting the tunes into my skull.

Why? Because it is tough, it works well, it sounds great and it's comfortable for hours. A great combination. Do I have better sounding headphones? Yes. But they are expensive and not as obviously tough as these. They are indoor phones. These are go-anywhere phones.

Most of my headsets didn't need burn in. These can benefit from some time playing. They sound a lot more precise after a couple months' use. They sound good out of the box though.

If you are looking for industrial strength go anywhere headphones that sound great, here you go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pocket Sound Upgrade For iPhone Video, February 28, 2015
Like many out there, I have the Tascam 30 pin stereo mic. It was about 20 bucks, and is a huge bargain at that price. But landscape video is out of the question.

This mic, an improvement on Zoom's IQ5, allows proper l-r stereo when recording video in proper landscape mode. It will cost you more than the old Tascam, but it actually does a job the Tascam will not do.

The mics are decent quality, nothing special. A decent hand rig with a shock mount is highly recommended if you want to get the most out of your iPhone's video capability and the IQ7's sound abilities. Stereo recording is a must, and this will do it for you for a hundred bucks.
