4.0 out of 5 stars They look great and sound nice, too., June 30, 2012
Alright, so these headphones are really cool-looking. That is the general argument, anyway, as whenever I walk around with these things upon my neck I receive constant complements and it's really quite nice. But given the price, I didn't expect these to sound absolutely amazing. I wanted something big enough so that I could listen to it without every other noise created within 20 miles distracting me, yet small enough so that I didn't have to remove and put them in a bag or backpack when not listening. These do fit that bill, they're not very large, nor are they too small.
Surprisingly, though, these sound pretty good given how much I paid, (really cheap)they're not like Sennheiser quality or anything but they're certainly better than a lot of comparable brand-x headphones. The bass comes through clean without gross rumbles and the higher pitches don't have a tinny, screechy noise with them. The mids, as you would expect for anything more than 10 bucks, are clean, clear, and inoffensive. Below, I'll analyze several genres of music and tell you how they sound with each.
METAL (artists: Alesana, Escape the Fate, Job for a Cowboy, iwrestledabearonce): Sound good. Screamy, growly vocals come through clean with little to no noise. Kickdrums don't try to blow out my ears. Guitars and bass sounds the way it should.
ROCK (artists: Circa Survive, Vampire Weekend, Cream): Everything sounds as it should, no noise or rumbling.
JAZZ (artists: Art Tatum, Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington): The bass is grand and clear. The piano's great and the vocals are crisp.
FOLK (artists: The Violent Femmes, Iron and Wine, The Mountain Goats): It all sounds perfect, the instruments don't sound like a jumbled mess (as folk music tends to on cheaper headphones) and the lower notes hit with a distinctive bassy thump.
POP (I know somebody's probably wondering)(artists: Lady Gaga, BIGBANG, TaTu, Cascada): Every bassline hit perfect, every synth stab lacked noise, and every basskick was clear and had a good thump to it. Vocals, again, were crisp.
HOUSE (artists: Skrillex, Daft Punk, Wolfgang Gartner): All sounds good. See the "POP" section, same concept.
DUBSTEP (artists: Ry Legit, Jogo, xKore): Bass levels seem to work well for dubstep, not so bassy that everything else's washed out, but bassy enough to where you can feel each wobble.
DRUM AND BASS (artists: Netsky, Dirtyphonics, Dieselboy): Basslines were great, and the drums all seemed to carry the appropriate weight as far as bass goes.

And that, friends, is my review. Overall, if you're in the market for an affordable, stylish pair of headphones, this is a good purchase. They sound almost as good as they look.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's like Smash TV meets Boxhead, and about as fun as them both., October 13, 2011
This review is from: Age of Zombies (App)
Well. I got it for free with my Pandigital Star through Getjar, which was really nice. It's legal and it won't end up spamming you to death or virus-ing you. So, yes, gameplay is fast and fluid. It's got twin-stick controls like Robotron or Geometry Wars or Smash TV, and it plays well on a multi-touch device. you can adjust the size of the thumbsticks and choose to have them pop up wherever you touch, which is nice if you dig that kind of thing. It's really short, but the survival maps add ENDLESS replay value. Not bad for free, and at the current asking price is reasonable for such a good action game as well. There's hordes of zombies to kill with lots of awesome weapons in a variety of locations at various points in time, which is an awesome addition (READ: Zombie T-Rex. Yeah.) and will make a good addition to your collection. Get it, man, for serious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, with a lot of unreasonable, unfair reviews., October 13, 2011
This review is from: Fruit Ninja Free (App)
Hey, you soccer moms. Your ramblings about the dangers of advertising do not qualify as a review. Don't expose your child to internet ads period if you're afraid of ads about zombies and pornography, (I've never experienced the latter, although I have seen a somewhat sexual dating site ad) and if you really want them to play this game sans adverts, you can pay for the paid one. It's about the price of a cheeseburger or a game of Time Crisis at the arcades. As for me, I'm old enough to handle zombies and scantily-clad women. As a matter of fact, I've grown an appreciation of those things. Also, one guy with a legitimate concern that this app is taking his contacts for nefarious, dastardly purposes, I've never seen any ill effects like you describe. You may have an issue with something else or maybe you're just unfortunate.
Any-friggin'-way, this game is gloriously well-made and deceivingly simple. On the outside, it looks way too simplistic, but the beast in question has layers, like parfait. And also, like a parfait, this game's got a lot of fruit. In fact, this game's all about fruit, bombs, and swords. I beleive several dozen people will agree that those are some of the finest things in life.
The object of the game is to cut as much fruit as you can. Whether it's a time limit or going until you miss too many fruits/hit a bomb, you cut up a juicy, fruity shake. It's kinda like working at Jamba Juice, exept it's far more pleasent. And the fruit-cutting, acheived by swiping your finger across your screen (if your using one of those Android laptops, I guess it'd be click-and-drag), works extremely well. On all three Android devices I've played this game on (a Pandigital Star, my Optimus V, and my mom's Samsung Droid Charge), the game works admirably well, which is awesome. Slight lag on the Pandigital Star. (it's only got 256 RAM, though)
It uses 3D graphics (they're not like Modern Combat, NOVA, Assassin's Creed or Splinter Cell or anything like that) which give the game a good fluidity, and it also has a good cartoon-ish look about it, which it very charming and doesn't require a ridiculous amount of processing power due to lack of detailed textures. In short, it looks good. Damn good. And it's a pretty efficient worker. Like a chick who maintains minefields for a living.
And, well, that's about it. got OpenFeint for leaderboards and unlockable swords and gubbins like that, which is nice. The core gameplay is solid, works well, is extremely fun and doesn't take up nearly as much time as an Angry Birds addiction or something similar.
