RHA Audio MA650 – Regal Sound Fit For Life

Okay, I’ll be the first to admit it: I spend way too much time plugged in. Too much time on my phone, too much time on my iPad and way too much time on my PC. But, as someone who tests and evaluates technology, it’s understandable. Some technology makes my job tedious, like earbuds that not only don’t fit, they produce sound that is flat and tinny. Or headphones so hot and heavy they create their own climate zone in your ears.So, you can imagine my reluctance when invited by RHA Audio to test and evaluate the new MA650 Wireless Headphones. My track record with headphones is abysmal, after all, and, unfortunately, I expected no better.

Sweat proof neck bud design
Sweat-proof neck bud design

The first clue I had that the RHA MA 650 would be different came in the packaging. It was substantial, elegant and 100%. Frustration-free. The packaging made it clear that these were no ordinary earphones. These headphones come with 8 pairs, yes 8, dual density flange silicone ear tips to accommodate the perfect fit for a dynamic sound experience that exceeds all expectations in audiological ergonomics.

Your set includes a dual material 1.35m oxygen free USB-C Copper Cable for fast and reliable charging, a clothing clip, mesh carry bag and instructions that are clear and easy to follow. Award-winning RHA Audio appreciates the art of over-delivering when it comes to creating a superior audio experience.

The unit itself is elegant. For starters, it’s sweat-proof and lies comfortably on the back of your neck or can be tucked inconspicuously under a collar. It is so light and did I mention sweat proof? It’s easy to forget it is there. But the dynamic sound you hear coming from those tiny and comfortable earbuds will amaze you. RHA’s inverted trumpet bell design combines both sound chamber and sound pipe into a single housing concept.  The depth and complexity of the high-resolution sound with deep bass coming from the Aerophonic™ Custom Dynamic driver at 16-4000 Mhz will transport you to sound nirvana at a most reasonable price point.

The MA 650 is not your ordinary set of headphones. The Bluetooth technology pairs effortlessly and quickly with a long-lasting 12-hour minimum battery life that recharges lightning fast with a pleasant voice that alerts you when your battery approaches 25% and 10% with a gentle chime to indicate it’s time to recharge. I found that even after 14 hours, the unit still had 20% life remaining. Charging took all of two hours through the charger cable (included) allowing me to continue use of it in the evening after a long day at work, before finally retiring to bed.

RHA Silicone ear tips
Eight sizes to choose from for an ergonomic fit

I’ve used the MA 650 to listen to my music on my phone, watch movies on my iPad, and to talk wirelessly on my iPhone all without loss of clarity or sound and because of the ear pad design, almost near noise cancelling attributes, a feature generally not available at three times the price points.

At weighing just over an ounce, RHA’s MA650 is without a doubt one of the most amazing wireless headphone sets on the market today. It works for all your audio needs and after heavy duty use for the last few months, it continues to work as beautifully as it did when it first arrived. The MA650 even prides itself on being engineered to withstand sweat and water exposure with an IPX4 rating. Suitable for hard workouts and outdoor activities.

This Glasgow, UK based company offers the MA650 units for about $100 bucks with free shipping to the USA, including a 3year warranty.

Holy Grail of Hearing Aid Technology by ‘Eargo’

Eargo Hearing Device

Nearly 48 million people in America have some level of hearing loss. That’s about 1 in 8 of every American. According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, by age 65 that ratio jumps to an astounding 1 in 3 people with hearing impairment. The sad reality is that only about 14% ever do anything about it, reports Dr. Frank Lin, assistant professor of otolaryngology and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University.

So why is there such a wide disparity between users of hearing enhancement and those that need to? Why is it that the need for better vision has become so mainstream and widely accepted, yet hearing retains such a silent stigma?

Three of the primary reasons why people refuse to concede to the addition of hearing aid assistance is:

  • Fear of ridicule, rejection, and perception of incompetence
  • Cost – both the hearing aids themselves as well as battery replacement can be pricey
  • Denial – accepting is an admission of inferiority and disability

Eargo Hearing Aids

Eargo, a Mountain View, California, future-forward tech think-trust, has taken hearing enhancement well beyond the next generation. Just when you thought hearing aids have gotten about as small as they get…think smaller. Forget everything you ever thought about what a hearing aid should usually look like. The Eargo hearing devices are in fact, so tiny, they literally hide deep and securely in your hearing canal beyond recognition. You will want to brag to your friends about just how small they really are, which oddly enough, defeats the whole reason why you got them in the first place.

Eargo Home Recharger

Besides being impossible to detect in the ear, they are also rechargeable. They stay charged for up to 16 hours, just about as long as most people stay awake. They come in their own recharging docking station that connects to any Mini USB cord. The savings from existing hearing aid batteries over several years almost pays for itself. The hassle alone of changing hearing aid batteries on a regular basis is enough to discourage many users. Just tuck them effortlessly into their convenient charging storage pack overnight and they will ready to go by the time you wake up.

The Eargo is currently only designed for the individual with mid to moderate hearing range, which is a majority of the hearing loss populous. Eargo hearing aids are designed with Flexi Fiber construction that does not plug up the ear canal like some devices. This allows the ear to breathe while permitting ambient bass tones to penetrate the hearing pathway. Mid to high range frequencies are amplified providing a natural tonality mix.

Eargo Tiny Hearing Aids
Eargo – Tiniest hearing aid available

Like most hearing aid products, Eargo is not covered by insurance or Medicare but are much more affordable than most fitted devices. They come with a 45-day money back guarantee, a 12-month warranty and free shipping. And at over $200 a year for most hearing aid batteries, Eargo may be your best viable hearing solution. Financing is available as well as, with up to 24-month plans to choose from.  Go to their website for ordering details.

Mitte Water Purifier creates ‘Smartwater’ setting highest standard in water filtration

Mitte water purification systems

Today, perfect purified water is an elusive endeavor. In a polluted and growing world where fresh water is limited and comes at a premium, the search for quality water filtration has become more important than ever before. To make matters worse, more and more impurities are jeopardizing the quality of our water supplies. Pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, nitrates, fertilizers, bacteria, microbes, pathogens, narcotics, heavy metals, chlorine, fluorides, detergents, microplastics and other contaminants are just some of the substances plaguing our fresh water supplies.

What’s even more alarming is the exponentially dangerous levels of synthetic estrogens being flushed into our sewage and water treatment facilities daily…since 1960 when the FDA initially approved Enovid, the first birth control pill. Most of these compounds are near impossible to eliminate unless extreme heat is implemented in the filtration process. Is there any wonder why so many illnesses like cancer, thyroid, diabetes, and other related ailments are on the rise every year?

Mitte home purification
Removed the chemicals while custom designing key elements for your body.

Why is clean fresh water so important?

Believe it or not, fresh water is a rare global commodity. It is a natural resource whose quantity and availability never increases. What will shock you is just how rare and limited water really is on Earth. Nearly 97% of the water on this planet is either too saline to drink (from oceans) or just plain undrinkable due to other factors. Then there is 2% of freshwater locked away in the polar ice caps that will likely never be used in our lifetime. That leaves about 1% of the remaining water supply for all the world to share for consumable needs, like, culinary, bathing, recreational, sewage and agricultural use, and more. In fact, the amount of water we use today is the same amount that was available when the Earth was formed. Unfortunately, much of today’s 1% is recycled in larger populated areas through sewage and water treatment plants. Only a small amount of fresh water is being drawn from natural resources that are pollutant free.

As global populations increase, this remaining 1%  becomes even more valuable as a resource like never before. Water is life itself. Without it, we cease to exist. With 99% of the planet’s water almost virtually untappable at any given time, it leaves very little to safely go around each day.

Mitte Purifier
Mitte purification system and technology

Be part of the water solution

Mitte, a German water treatment technology company, may very well have cracked the code to the next standard in water filtration and purification. Using a patented (EU Patent No. EP17154125) distillation/condensation process based on the principles of implementing two Peltier elements driving thermoelectric heat pumps, is able to attain a level of purification higher than any existing water filtering system on the market today.

The Mitte water purifier boasts an incredible 60X cleaner H2O than regular water filtration systems and 3X cleaner than reverse osmosis. What Makes the Mitte system so unique, is its ability to reintroduce custom designed mineral content back into your filtered water inspired by nature. In the natural scheme of water mineralization, water travels through the soil working its way into deep aquifers that retain trace minerals and electrolytes along the way. When the water is pumped out of these indigenous supply sources, the water is naturally enhanced. Mitte replicates this process in a tailor-made system adding essential minerals according to your needs. With the Mitte app, you can custom blend your water right from your smartphone.

With only 27% of the water bottles in the US being recycled each year and 17 million barrels of oil each year just to produce them, it only seems logical to consider personal home purification. An astounding 94% of most water supplies have traces of microplastics. We are literally being slowly poisoned by our water supply system with no end in sight. PET plastics in average water bottles are just as bad during degradation. They have been known to release endocrine disruptors in certain high-temperature conditions which can exceed EU standards. A majority of water contaminants can be eliminated with any one of Mitte’s water purification systems.

Mitte sets the standard for not only pure water but a smarter water. There are six different IndieGoGo pre-order packages to choose from. Pick the one that is right for your home purification needs. Go,to their IndieGoGo page for more details and pricing.

Aer Design – Business Carry-On Travel Bag Meets Briefcase

Checking your travel bag versus carrying it on is always the nagging question when flying…especially abroad. The deciding factor often leans between convenience, weight and how important the contents are in the event your bag doesn’t make it to its final destination. With TSA and baggage handler theft a constant threat, as well as potential damage eminent, arriving at your destination with all your business valuables is critical.

The business traveler travels more than ever before. Taking the pressure and worry off of the experience makes for a more enjoyable and productive trip. The AER Design carry-on travel bag does just that in combining the very best in overhead baggage with the organizational features of a briefcase. Granted, this may not be the best-suited gear for your dream vacation or big enough for that luxury cruise but it was never intended to be. If you are the serious, get-it-done, 1-3 nighter business CEO jet-setter that requires all the important accessories in one bag without all the fluff, then this one’s designed with you in mind.

Don’t let the low-key appearance fool you. After careful inspection, you will discover that this is not just any travel bag. Combining briefcase and suitcase into one convenient carry case wasn’t easy but Aer Design, LLC met the challenge. We put it to the test over a two week period through a multiple of travel conditions vetting for ease of access, durability, and security.

AER travel on the go

Zippered Pockets and More

Strategic zippered pockets are all in the right places for chargers, writing materials, personal travel essentials, etc. We particularly liked the quick and easy access at the top of the bag for cell phone and travel documents. It’s nice to be able to instantly stash your TSA PRE documents, cell phone, jewelry and even belt from one easy-to-access pocket after clearing the screening area. No more digging for those items on the way to the gate. The shoulder straps together with the flat stable design make it easy to secure your travel jacket or suit coat while passing through the X-ray machine. Aer Design Bags meet all international and domestic travel requirements for size and dimension so you will never have to worry about whether it gets denied at the gate as an overhead carry-on bag.

Optimal Packing Design

Unlike most back packs and other carry-on bags, the Aer Design bag opens up completely in clam-shell fashion allowing full access to the interior for optimal packing rather than stuffing like a duffle or satchel gear. Organization of all accessories provides room for more contents in a defined space while being equally and easily accessible. and yes, they even threw in an expandable water bottle compartment by popular demand.

Laptop Safety and Security

Extra padding and durability on the top sides and corners ensure that your computer stays suspended in transit, intact and in one piece by the time you meet your final destination. Front panel padding also helps resist the regular jostling during the trip while keeping contents dry and safe.

Shoe Storage

One nifty little compartment at the bottom of the bag is specifically designed for extra shoe storage. It is a waterproof compartment separate from your clothes and completely odor proof. It even doubles as a mini laundry hamper for underwear, socks, and other worn garments.

Handles Galore

Multiple handles on every side make it easy to maneuver and carry no matter the position. You carry it like a briefcase or over the shoulder like a back pack for those heavier packing trips where two hands are essential in carrying more than one bag or equipment. Their quality wear-resistant material and sturdy zipper design are built to last through for years to come. The backpack shoulder straps are adjustable and ergonomically engineered for comfort. Custom side compression straps convert the bag from bag to briefcase.

Priced for the demanding traveler at just over $200, this travel gear is a no nonsense addition to any business professional.

SnapPower’s Out-of-Sight Night Light and Outlet

Every once in a while our staff is fortunate enough to come across a product that has us all asking the painful question, “…why didn’t I think of that”? Very rarely does it ever happen but this handy little device is one certainly of them. After reading this article, we are certain you will agree. If you are an electrician, be prepared to kick yourself.

Enter SnapPower™

Quite simply put, this cool little gadget replaces your existing electrical socket into a convenient and out-of-sight, night light. And you can still use it for powering any appliance like you did before. Nothing changes but the addition of a night light with a row of three tiny LED light bulbs at the bottom of the unit. You would never know it was a night light to look at it…until someone turns off the lights.

Safe and Secure

The SnapPower night light system is just as safe fixed as the outlet that it replaced. It is no more dangerous than any other .39 cent plastic outlet you would find at Home Depot. Almost every part of the SnapPower outlet is identical to your conventional wall power outlet. It installs just as easy as your previous outlet in the same amount of time. No exposed wires or parts connected to electricity that you might touch accidentally. In fact, it has no wires at all. The LED miniature set of lights is tucked into the outlet housing and emit no heat. If you still aren’t convinced, SnapPower has gone the extra mile by engineering a model that is entirely child-proof with SafeLight™, a closed design with zero threat to crawling babies. No fear of toddlers mistaking it for a toy or ever poking their tiny fingers into the socket holes. Too many night lights on the market have tempting

Because the SnapPower outlet is light-sensor activated, it only comes on when it gets dark adding additional security to your home when away from your house.

 

Space Saving Design

The sleek and clean design stays just as flush to the wall as any other outlet. It does nothing to impede upon the access of other cords when plugging into the device. Conventional night lights are often bulky and stick out from the wall getting in the way of vacuuming and other traffic.

Charging Station

SnapPower has also developed a design that includes a USB charging station. A bit more noticeable than the standard SnapPower unit but just as convenient. Power up your cell phone or other USB connected devices without the need for taking up lamp cord light socket space. Simply plug in as you would into your laptop USB outlet.

Light Switches

Not to be outdone, SnapPower features an accompanying light switch design. In dark areas of your home (or office) where fumbling for a light switch is a hassle, SnapPower has thought of that too. As soon as the sun goes down or the lights go off, the sensors built into unit activates the LED lights to illuminate the location of the light switch for easy access. Those late night trips to the kitchen become a whole lot easier…and safer. For those dark closets, basements, and garages, a well-lit light switch leaves no question where to find it.

Annual Cost

One of the best features of all is the cost to use. At only 10 cents a year per unit, there is no need to worry about whether the device is using up unnecessary energy when out of town or on vacation. With no heat generated, there is no cause for alarm for electrical fires. All SnapPower devices are UL listed and ETL listed in the United States and Canada. On a rating of 1-10 on our “Scale of Brilliance“, the SnapPower products ranks a solid 10 for ingenuity, simplicity, and life-changing disruptive design. Have you kicked yourself yet?

MantelMount Pulls Down to Eye-Level

Television mounts came in all shapes and sizes but not all of them are engineered like MantelMount.

It’s a never ending problem. Over the fireplace eventually seems to win out as the most logical place for your flat screen TV. The only question is, will it be too high and will it be too hot near the fireplace? Maneuvering a flat screen TV has always been limited until now. Not only does the MantelMount design move side-to-side but due to some clever patented engineering, this mechanism has the hydraulic ability to pull forward, up and down to your exacting preference. The height adjustment feature is especially user-friendly for children allowing for better eye-level viewing. The piston counter-balance design allows ease of movement for anyone.

MantelMounts for easy TV adjustments

The system is easy to mount and even comes with a paintable cover that disguises the mounting bracket behind the TV making for a more esthetic look when the mount it adjusted away from the wall. Heat detecting handles are also included to let you know if the mount is too close to heat from a fireplace at 110 degrees. The MM700 series mount comes with speaker attachments for the newer horizontal sound bars.

With the lightweight alloy construction and quality assembly, you will likely pass this product down to the next generation to come. Visit their site for size and pricing to meet your needs.

The Ultimate Coffee Mug


Ember Coffee Tumbler  –  Ember Technology

In a world where literally millions of coffee mugs and cups exist, only one stands alone as the benchmark of the coffee (or tea) experience. Introducing Ember, undoubtedly the world’s “smartest” cup of Joe you will ever enjoy.

Besides the obvious, with regards to types of coffee and water purity, what makes a hot drink most desirable is it’s temperature. Potentially dangerous and no fun when it’s too hot while undesirable when too cold…especially in the winter.  What makes the Ember drink tumbler so unique is the temperature dial feature built into the bottom of its design. Set the dial as high as 142f/57c degrees and enjoy your favorite hot drink for up to two hours at a precise set temperature. Time enough to make it to the office before refilling.  You can then use the recharger as your hot plate as it re-energizes for the next round.

 

Ember is the latest (and rarest) IoT technology in hot drink consumption. The smooth, sleek and slick black exterior design is void of any buttons or switches. Digital read-out is embedded in the side of the cup device. Coupled with its very own app tied to your smartphone via Bluetooth, the Ember will notify you when your coffee reaches your exact drinking temperature. You can also set your desired temp on your smartphone in advance with three separate settings for different drink types. It even has the ability to cool down your drink with it’s patented ‘phase change cooling’ system from an average serving temp of 160f/71c degrees, down to your desired holding level.

 

The stainless steel inner construction with space-grade insulation and patented microprocessor technology affords a durable composition. Bluetooth integration allows the user to interface with smartphones and wearables to alert you when the device needs recharged or to monitor the tumbler’s exact temperature. You can even personalize your Ember mug. Your name appears on the ‘hidden-til-lit’ display each time you turn it on.  The 360 degree ‘push-to-open’ drink lip rim interface that brilliantly allows for drink flow from any side of the tumbler’s opening. At about 8 inches (200mm) tall, holding 12oz of liquid and about 17oz/475gr in heft, the Ember is a formal and professional drink device, not for the casual sipper.

The Ember is not cheap either, but quite practical for the serious coffee drinker. Retailing for about $160USD online and at a few select Starbuck outlets. It’s certain to be the hit around the office coffee maker or local barista. An amazing gift for the coffee snob in your life or CEO on your gift list who has everything.

Aervana – The Nirvana of wine aeration

Since the conception of fine wine, consumers have approached the process of aeration in a variety of ways. From decanting, open bottles (to breathe), or the simple swirl of the wrist. Aervana, a wine technology innovator, headquartered in Seattle, WA.,  has taken the art of aeration to a whole new level. Possibly the Holy Grail of all aerators on the market today.

The Conundrum

Both saint and culprit, oxygen has forever been the provider, as well as thief, of great tasting wines. Sort of a Ying and Yang aspect of what makes wine the liquid art that it is. Taming the technique of aeration has been all the buzz the last 5 years or so. Mastering it, however, is a whole different matter.

Oxygen is one of the key components to unlocking layers of notes in red wines. It promotes the bouquet while revealing vital layers within the wine’s varietal brought about by a combination of fermentation, racking and of course, aging. Without it, it is impossible to enjoy wine at its full potential. Too much and you may as well set it aside for cooking, at best. Aervana commands a perfect balance when introducing precise aeration into your favorite (or perhaps not so favorite) red wine selections. 

The average taste buds can actually sense oxygenated wine at just over 8ppm, (Ideally 6ppm) which proves just how sensitive our olfactory sensors really are. Over oxygenated wine is oxidized and therefore, rendered pretty much undrinkable. The adverse effects of allowing wine to breathe through decanting, swirling or the slow open bottle method at room temp (30+ minutes), is that you can’t undo the oxygenation process once it starts. Limiting the initial exposure to wine is crucial to wine preservation. The less you expose any amount of wine, the longer it’s going to last. Leaving it in the bottle with minimal contact to air will aid in wine salvation. Aervana limits air contact by acting as a replacement of the cork once opened and during aeration. Although the Aervana is not intended as a storage or stopper feature, it does limit wine’s exposure to open air. It doubles as an aeration and dispensing appliance with immediate results.

One other feature we discovered (although not official or backed by any scientific data. Simply an observation) is the dissipation of sulfides out of red wines through their thorough aeration process. A positive by-product of the Aervana aerator for those sensitive to sulfide additives imposed by the USDA.

Installation is quick, easy and deliberate. Never a need to wait for traditional breathing practices. Uncork your bottle, place the Aervana directly into the bottle and dispense…within seconds. Aerated wine served directly to your glass rendering even the youngest tannin wines quite palatable.

Aervana pairs nicely right next to your electric cork remover. It’s the first and only electric wine aerator on the market. Making its appearance for a second year at the 2016 International Housewares Show (IHHA), Aervana enjoys an IH+HS Innovation Award as a 2015 Finalist.

Patented in four countries and Europe, the Aervana is the brain child of master consumer product inventor, president, and wine enthusiast, Louis J. Christen, III. “It is my goal to transform and enhance the way you and your friends enjoy wine”, the inventor was quoted in explaining his love of wine and the total experience of wine enjoyment. 

An absolute must-have for any wine vineyard tasting room, wine bar or lounge where accurate and regulated amounts of wine serving are monitored and/or required by law.

Suggested retail runs about $99 from their website or Amazon.com. The ultimate wine gift for any vino aficionado. Aervana is dedicated to making good wines even better.
