• Monster DNA PRO 2.0 Headphones Review

    Right out of the gate, you know you’re listening to something special with the Monster DNA PRO 2.0. Combining deep bass and crystal clear details is something that hasn’t been perfected yet, but the PRO 2.0 comes pretty damn close. With excellent noise isolation and strong crisp sound accompanied by good bass (not overbearing, but enough to really feel it), the DNA PRO 2.0, could be the best bang-for-your-buck this holiday season on the high end spectrum of over the ear headphones. As a bit of an audio geek I could honestly say that these headphones needed 0 equalizing adjustments out of the box, just clean music, with raw accents you will certainly not be able to hear with other over the head headphones. With all the professional grade qualities the 2.0 has, it’s also catering to the audio enthusiast, not just the audio engineer. A dual-port input feature allows up to five headphones to connect to one music source at the same time, great for travel buddies, or bands looking for a cohesive synced detailed listen. While the price is comparable ($299.95) to the rest of the higher end headphones today, the sound quality far surpasses most.

  • Earhoox are the Solution to Loose Earbuds

    One of the mysteries of human achievement has been the lack of audio ear technology for the common earbud. It’s as if the human race has completely given up and simply moved toward the bulky studio headphones, which is fine, but can be intrusive for active lifestyle people. Well the solution has been found. Some say Di Vinci invented  a similar mechanism, but had it taken away by officials, because people were not ready for such a brilliant yet simple world changing advancement. A small circular rubber tire that fits snugly on your general bud, with a shark fin attached that secures itself in the concha of your ear. This is ideal for people who don’t like the insecurity of regular ajustable buds that you have to force into the ear canal, making it tender after a long session. Earhoox are the simple detachable answer to a thousand year old question. Earhoox $8 https://vimeo.com/54795869 Earhoox™ – The Earbud Cure from Earhoox on Vimeo.

  • The Best Earphones You Can Buy For Tough Mudder Training

    So the RSVLTS.com office is training for Tough Mudder, more on that to come, and running is a huge part of the workout routine designed by our celebrity trainer Michael Olajide Jr. Up until last week my earbud of choice was the Munitio Call of Duty MW3 earphones, badass bullet shape and superior sound quality. But then Phiaton dropped me a line asking to give their PS 210 BTNC Bluetooth 3.0 Active Noise Cancelling Earbuds a try. When I’m jogging nothing is more annoying then the cord bouncing around and falling out of my ears. So how could I possibly pass up earphones that connect to my phone using Bluetooth 3.0 so there are no additional wires to trip over and are great for jogging, exercising, or getting my swell on. The Active Noise canceling lives up to the hype, it really doesn’t serve a purpose while running around the park but it is incredibly useful while riding on the subway. Comparable or a hair better than the Munitio’s so these are probably the best earphones I’ve ever used. At $150 the price is a little stiff but if you want to wear the best you need to pay a more »
