What do we look for in Bluetooth headphones? Well obviously they have to have good sound quality. A lot of Bluetooth headphones skimp out on the bass either to cut corners or to save on battery life. That said, they have to have exceptional battery life. If we’re going to be taking these headphones with us on the go, they have to last all day. And it naturally follows that if they can last all day, well they have to be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time too. And for all of this we’d rather not have to pay an arm and a leg. Some headphones are completely unexceptional in all of those areas but are still outrageously priced. Sound quality, battery life, comfort, well priced. Those are the big ones and the Ghostek soDrop 2 Bluetooth headphones ticks all of those boxes. The sound quality is great, with deep bass, the battery can deliver 14 hours of music playback, the soft leather ear cups are comfortable and smooth, and it’s priced well below similar products of similar grade quality.

Oddball Drum Machine
We all know about the simple office pastime of bouncing tennis balls off the wall. Much to the chagrin of our coworkers, you can now use the Oddball to make unique drum beats and loops by doing just that. This fun little device is currently funding on Kickstarter and is down-sized drum machine thats been encased in a bouncy ball that you can throw, drop and bounce to activate. The Oddball acts as the percussion trigger and the internal sensors can translate the noises via Bluetooth to the Oddball mobile app. Intensity is control by the force of the bounces and for the more advanced audio mixers the drum machine can act as a MIDI controller used in apps like Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic Pro and Garageband. The ball charges over USB and ships with the companies own app that is preloaded with multiple effects and audio tools.
