When I was much younger and still using the public transportation system, I would always have my ears cupped with a set of headphone or plugged with a pair of earphones because being an introvert, I would prefer listening to my playlist than to interact with people.
I was very much in my own world back then and I would always listened intently to the tracks over and over again just so that I could figure out the drum beats and chords used in the song.

So, how do I accurately determine the drum beats and chords used in a song?

Well, I had to use a high-quality earphone or headphone that is able to produce crisp and clear audio. There is indeed a stark contrast between an average earphone/headphone and a high-quality one. Many people often have the misconception that earphone/headphone are made the same and they produce the same audio quality but the truth is certainly far from that.

If you visit an electronics store frequently, you would have noticed that there are cheap and affordable earphone/headphone out there and there are also the very expensive ones too. With plenty of options available, how then do you decide which earphone/headphone is the most suitable one for you?

Firstly, you need to decide on your budget. Do bear in mind that the higher your budget, the more options there will be for you to choose.

But what if you are on a low budget?

Just because an earphone/headphone is cheap and affordably priced, it doesn’t mean that the quality may necessarily be bad. After you have decided on how much you want to spend on an earphone/headphone, the next thing you need to ask yourself is what kind of features/functions you want to get out of the product. The more features/functions you want to have in an earphone/headphone, the more money it is going to cost you.

For a very decent earphones that is super affordable, I highly recommend the GoGear Alumies Earphones [Model Number: GEP4005]. It is pretty stylish, lightweight, and best of all; the sound quality is very decent for the price that one has to pay!

In case you’re wondering, the GoGear brand of products is the latest addition to the portable audio range under Gibson Innovations and Gibson Innovations is part of the Gibson Brands Inc., one of the world’s leading music lifestyle companies [guitarists would definitely be able to identify with the Gibson brand].

Costing only SGD$29.90, the GoGear Alumies Earphone comes with a 1-year local warranty and you can get them at Mustafa and selected 7-Eleven stores in Singapore. Should anything happen to the Earphone due to a defect, you can do a one-to-one exchange with Hwee Seng Electronics [the sole distributor in Singapore for GoGear].

Psst… we are running a giveaway on Instagram & Facebook and we will be giving away 3 sets of GoGear Sparklers! If you are interested, click  for more details!

For a wallet-friendly wireless Bluetooth headphone that is lightweight, you might want to consider the very stylish and sleek Jabra Move Wireless Headphone that offers a surprisingly superior and comfortable audio-listening experience.

One thing I really like about the Jabra Move Wireless Headphone is that when Bluetooth is unavailable, such as during long-haul flights or with non-Bluetooth enabled devices; a detachable 3.5mm audio cable [that is included in the package] can be used for an equally outstanding sound experience.

The battery life is pretty decent and its price tag of SGD$148 is slightly higher but very reasonable. Available in Gold, Cobalt Blue, Cayenne Red and Coal Black, you can get the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones at Jabra’s GoWireless Online Store.

Well, if you are the extroverted sort of person and you enjoy being social; you probably might want to consider the Logitech Ultimate Ears MegaBoom Bluetooth Speaker! It boasts a bold and iconic design and it has a long battery lifespan that can last almost an entire day.

One thing I admire about the Logitech Ultimate Ears MegaBoom Bluetooth Speaker is the fact that it is shock-proof and has a waterproof rating of IPX7.

However, don’t be fooled by its bulky shape; not only does it blast freakishly amazing 360-degree sound with deep, heart-pounding bass, the Logitech Ultimate Ears MegaBoom Bluetooth Speaker actually weighs even lesser than a 1KG-pack of flour and you can even pair it up with another MegaBoom to pump up the volume!

However, the only qualm I have about the Logitech Ultimate Ears MegaBoom Bluetooth Speaker is the super-expensive price tag of SGD$399. If you have the dough to splurge, you can get it from the Apple Online Store.

So, how much will you spend on a set of earphones/headphones?

As for me, I guess it really depends on what I want to get out of my audio-listening experience.

For everyday commuting use, I will probably consider an affordable pair of earphone that is durable and offers an immersive audio-listening experience while for office use or business trips, I will consider a pair of wireless headphones; and well, if I’m organising a get-together party at home or having a game of volleyball at the beach, a wireless portable waterproof Bluetooth Speaker will surly come in handy.

We don’t know about you but it’s increasingly harder to work from home (yes, we’re homebodies whom enjoys lazing around at home) with all the temptations & distractions around us. After all, it is home a.k.a our comfort zone right?
However, here are some helpful tips that you can use to really maximise your working time at home; which is good to adopt should the day come when we’re hit by a zombie apocalypse or the next flu bug.

1. Stick to a schedule: Treat your days like a normal workday. You should not be setting an alarm for the morning and then hitting the snooze button repeatedly until you realise it is noon time! However, it is perfectly fine to have a coffee break during your working hours. For some people, working from home may be quite daunting because they see themselves giving up their own personal lifestyle by being on-call (contactable and available via mobile) the whole day…which isn’t necessary. Just maintain your normal working hours and your own email rhythm.

2. Set a to-do list: Identify all the tasks that you need completed. It really helps us to focus throughout the day, lest we get carried away watching too many YouTube videos online.

3. Reduce distraction with a wire-free environment: The office has a nice setup, likely created by your friendly IT guy, which may not be easy to replicate at home. Instead, consider simplifying your setup with wireless devices, such as the Logitech Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820 or the Logitech M235 Wireless mouse. A neat desk and work space helps to create a productive environment and a more welcome sight, especially when you might need to overcome the initial inertia to work at home.

4. Get outside: Take a walk outside your block, get lunch or coffee from your nearby kopitiam, or just chat with your neighbour next door. Most of us actually need to take short breaks during work, be it to rest our eyes or to collect our thoughts for a bit; so just do the same as you would in the office. There would be some initial adjustment since you’re without your friends and colleagues. Or if you prefer to change your work environment, bring along your tablet and keyboard so that you can still work at the park or café…which might be a good idea if you need to avoid the evil afternoon nap.

5. Use the cloud: Some of us may not like to work from home because the all-important documents are in the office’s servers. If possible, back up your documents on cloud services such as Dropbox or Google Drive which will allow you to easily access your documents.

6. Listen to some music: If you’re one of those who need something to listen to, feel free to play your favourite tunes without the worry of disturbing your colleagues. You can play your tunes from your smartphones/tablets with a wireless speaker such as the UE MINI BOOM or hook up a Bluetooth speakers like the Logitech Bluetooth Speakers Z600 to your own set up.  Just don’t forget to turn down the volume while you’re at a conference call or audio/video meeting.

At the end of the day, remember that working from home is really just that…work. It means that you shouldn’t be entertaining friends or family members during your working environment nor should you have non-work appointments (e.g. grocery trips). Once you’re able to establish a comfortable routine, it’ll be a lot easier to maximise your working hours at home…like Dilbert (:

I can’t imagine myself living a day of just black and white. Without other colours like red, blue, green, and so on, wouldn’t you agree that life would be quite mundane and meaningless. Since colours allow us to express our style, our thoughts, and our emotions; how would you like if you could use a different colour each day at work or at play to express yourself?
With the 2014 Logitech Colour Collection, you can do just that!

The 2014 Logitech Colour Collection was designed to reflect the open expression of individuality in society today. Available in 5 bold and vibrant colours, the newly designed Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235 is a perfect mix of precision and comfort, and it offers a new way to express yourself.

Is having a computer mouse still necessary today? Yes, if you are using the desktop and more so if you are an avid gamer.

What if you are a laptop user?

Have you ever felt this way before?

While the touchpad on the laptop allows you to navigate your way around, it can sometimes be extremely frustrating to use because of its unresponsive touch and inaccuracies. In all honesty, we prefer to use the laptop with a mouse [rather than a touchpad] as it offers added convenience. Furthermore, a wireless mouse allows you to be mobile when giving presentations and with the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235, there’s no need for a mouse pad!

What We Like About the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235

• Compact-size
• Wireless
• Energy-saving [battery can last approximately one year]
• No need for a mouse pad
• Appealing design and colour

Are you ready to colour up your life?

The Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235 is retailing for SGD$29 each and it comes with a 3-year limited hardware warranty. For more information about the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235, you can check out Logitech Singapore’s Website.

Oh, and if you are thinking of getting your wife/mum the Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235, you might want to join the Mother’s Day Contest that Logitech Singapore is running because they are giving away 20 sets of Logitech® Wireless Mouse M235. Hurry though; because the contest closes on 9th May 2014 [tomorrow].

Last week, we were at the Singapore launch of the UE BOOM at the Commune Cafe, Millenia Walk and we were extremely impressed with the wireless Bluetooth speaker.

The UE BOOM is the first-ever social music player that’s packed with a specific set of features that sets a new standard for listening to music. The first to offer a 360-degree sound for a battery-powered device, the UE BOOM also boasts a rechargeable battery that can last for 15 hours. Unless you can party hard for over 15 hours, we’re pretty sure the UE BOOM would cater to the lifestyle of most people. On top of that, the UE BOOM can pair up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices and connect up to two devices at the same time. This hence allows you to switch from one device to the next device with just a touch of the button.

The UE BOOM’s versatile go-anywhere shape is wrapped in a specially developed acoustic skin that is both water and stain resistant, and it allows you to enjoy your music practically anywhere you go. With a rubber sports-grip, the UE BOOM is definitely sporty and able to withstand hard knocks and shocks.

You can hook the UE BOOM with a Carabiner or Keychain and attach it together with your bag and anywhere you prefer.

The UE BOOM is definitely ultra-portable and a pleasure to bring around. Whether you’re heading to the beach for some suntanning, a BBQ/chalet party for a gathering with your friends, or to your dance studio for practising your dance routines, the UE BOOM will definitely be the life of the party.

To prove the point that the UE BOOM is a really tough and hardy speaker, we had a hands-on demonstration and we tried “killing” the UE BOOM like pouring water over it and throwing/dropping it on the ground from a height of 1 metre.

The UE BOOM is made for connecting with others and if more friends crash the party, you can wirelessly connect two UE BOOMs together through the free UE BOOM App [available for iOS™ and Android™] to play them in either stereo-to-stereo mode or traditional left/right stereo mode.

We were so engrossed in fiddling and pairing our mobile phones to the UE BOOM that we were oblivious to our surroundings.

How about toning that biceps with the UE BOOM? Well, probably not because it’s way too light; which probably is a plus point for ladies to own the UE BOOM.

Wouldn’t you agree with me that the UE BOOM really does look like a tumbler!

Well, so much for fooling around with the UE BOOM but if you’re curious to find out what the whole package contains, here you go!

In the package, you will find the charger [both two-pins and three-pins]…

and the USB cable!

The UE BOOM doesn’t looks too shabby even for the most contemporary and stylish modern home.

The Old vs The New? Truly, the UE BOOM has revolutionised the way music is shared! No wonder it is called the social music player!

UE BOOM is designed to bring music into the world and we really enjoyed fiddling with it. It is truly designed for people whom wants to share their passion for music and we highly recommend it for all your social gatherings. If you’re interested, the UE BOOM is available at all major electronic stores and it is selling for SGD$299.

3 Simple Steps to Join Gears War

All the best and if you have friends whom are gamers too, do spread and share the news with them too!

Logitech is no stranger to any gamer or computer user because it is one of the biggest brands that manufactures computer+gaming accessories like the mouse, keyboard, and speaker. However, with that being said, there are not many people who know that Logitech also manufactures products like the earphones and headphones. As a matter of fact, those whom have heard of Logitech’s Ultimate Ears [UE] Series are a select group of musicians and avid music listeners whom have tried Logitech’s UE earphones or headphones.
Recently, we were given the opportunity to review one of Logitech’s UE relatively new portable Bluetooth wireless speaker known as the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox and we were quite blown away by its performance.

Check out the video introduction of the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox

On the surface, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox looks compact and miniature. Because of its small size, bringing it around wherever we go was a breeze as we could easily fit it into our bags. In case you’re wondering how heavy is it, it weighs only 298 grams. However, don’t be fooled by its small stature because when the occasion calls for it, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox can really pack a punch!

From Logitech 2013

Unlike any other portable Bluetooth wireless speakers which can only connect one single mobile device, the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox allows users to connect up to two mobile devices at any one time and is able to play music from either one of the mobile devices. As the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox can also double up as a speakerphone for voice and video calls, you need not worry about missing any phone calls when listening to your favourite hits.

From Logitech 2013

Now, we put the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox to the test and here are our findings:


After 1 full charge of the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox, we connected my Apple iPhone 5 to the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox via Bluetooth and played music from the SKY.FM App. After which, we measured how long the battery could last until it depleted and guess what, it lasted way longer than my fully-charged Apple iPhone 5. As our Apple iPhone 5 depleted with the test, we couldn’t continue testing it but the duration we measured was approximately 5 hours! If not for the depleted battery of the Apple iPhone 5, we believe that the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox could go beyond 5 hours as it was tested by Logitech that it could last up to 10 hours!

Sound Quality

Besides having a long battery life, the quality of the sound produced was really superb. We played a few genres of songs ranging from classical and acoustic to rock and heavy metal, and we find that the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox was very suitable for classical, acoustic, jazz, and baroque songs. For rock and heavy metal songs, the sound produced was “bassy” and “boomy” but when you play it at the maximum volume, the sound was not so clear and got rather distorted. Hence, playing mellow songs at the maximum volume isn’t an issue.

If you’re wondering how the Logitech UE Mobile Boombox sounds like, check out the following video demonstration:


The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is wrapped with a unique grip-action rubber casing and hence is designed to withstand a little bumps and shocks. However, as with all electronic products, dropping is a NO-NO because it will damage the mechanics on the inside. The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox comes in 5 different vibrant colours of lime green, sea blue, white, black, and red for you to express your own style and you can be sure that it’s bound to attract lots of attention.

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox comes with a charging adapter, a three-pins plug, a two-pins plug, a user-guide, a USB charging cable, and a limited hardware warranty guide.

From Logitech 2013

The Logitech UE Mobile Boombox is available at all major electronics stores for the price of $149.00 and it comes with a 2-years limited hardware warranty. If you’re scratching your heads and you’re wondering what sort of gifts to get for your friends, this might just be the thing!
