BAMF Manufacturing RG6 Cable Splitter Kit

We recently upgraded to FiOS internet, which we didn’t want to do but really weren’t going to pay more for embarrassingly slow DSL, and telecommunications in this country are terrible as far as provider selection. With it came a whole new setup, as we were moving from copper lines to fiber optics and coaxial cables. Suffice to say we were ill prepared, until BAMF Manufacturing offered us their RG6 Cable Splitter kit. Talk about timing!

See, while Verizon FiOS uses fiber optics to get the service up to the house, once there they use good old-fashioned co-ax cables. and rest assured they use the cheapest stuff they can find, bought in bulk. BAMF Manufacturing save the day for us, because their kit came right when our install was done and it allowed us to split the signal for internet, and TV, with no signal loss of degradation. The shielding was adequate that two cables run side by side through the attic gave off no interference or noise. In fact, our installer commented on the quality of the cables and splitter being better than anything he had in his truck! He even wanted to keep out included cable assist wrench because it was so handy! Sorry, Mr. Installer, but that little guy is ours!

BAMF Manufacturing went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied customers and gave us a level of personal attention I wasn’t used to, but genuinely appreciated. Their products are hand-assembled in the USA and that’s always a plus I can get behind. Their RG6 cables are quality and we’ve had speeds in excess of our allotment for Verizon on multiple occasions, and I’d like to think that BAMF Manufacturing’s Cable Splitter Kit had something to do with that!

FSL Xylem In-Ear Monitors

So I’ve had quite a few headphones I’ve reviewed on here. Most are completely adequate, with passable sound and mostly work with all my devices with minimal hiccups. I was ready to lump Future Sound Lab’s wooden in-ear monitors with them; All sizzle and very little steak. I was wrong. FSL earbuds are the goods. Let me share why.

FSL uses a solid piece of eco-friendly wood for each ear, which is sonically superior to plastic and metal. It’s drivers deliver solid, quality sound with good bass response and sharp, clear highs. I would say they easily have superior sound than earbuds I’ve paid twice as much for. The wire is thin, but not so prone to tangles as some products out there. The microphone pics up voices well and does a decent job of filtering out ambient noise. The gold-plated 3.5mm connector snaps in solidly to all my devices, from laptops to tablets to phones to MP3 players. The controls work with every mobile device I own, which is a first. FSL even includes 3 different sizes of silicone tips to accommodate pretty much every ear size.

The hits don’t stop there, though. FSL includes a neat self-closing neoprene case to carry my earbuds everywhere, and keep them shmutz free. Because let’s be honest, nothing is nastier than sticking earbuds in your ear with all manner of crud stuck to the silicone tips. But wait, there’s more! FSL believes so much in the quality of their in-ear monitors, the back them with a 3-year warranty and lifetime support for customers. Now that is impressive. Good luck getting anything more than 90 days of warranty from most consumer electronics. For under $13, you are seriously getting more than your money’s worth. I can’t tell you how many earbuds I’ve tried in this price range and been horribly disappointed more times than I can count. These are the best ones in this price range I’ve tried, and better than sets costing twice as much. I’m glad I got to try them, and I recommend them highly.
