PulseAudio Vitality Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headphones

Every once in a while you come across a product that you didn’t know much about and didn’t see much use for, until you try it, and suddenly understand what all the hub-bub is about. That’s exactly what happened to me with these PulseAudio Vitality bluetooth headphones. I now don’t know how I ever got along without them. Come with me as we explore why.

Let’s be honest, there’s few things on this earth more annoying than having your earbuds ripped out of your ears. It’s somewhere between “nails on a chalkboard” and ” loud high-pitched whine”.  And we mostly do it ourselves because our earphone cord hangs down and gets caught on whatever (Or whoever) is nearest. I’m here to tell you that with PulseAudio’s Vitality bluetooth earbuds, that’s a thing of the past. And it doesn’t mean sacrificing every drop of sound quality either. Because the sound? It’s quality. It’s not like it’s reference quality, but I’ve paid more and gotten less when it comes to the sound, and they weren’t bluetooth either. And lest you think that means some giant ungainly boxes over your ears like the old FM radio headphones of yesteryear (Full disclosure, I actually owned some of those. Not to date myself here or anything!). No, these are fairly small, fairly light, but set securely in your ear and have plenty more to offer still. They are BlueTooth 4.1 compliant, and also offer NFC wireless capabilities, so all your latest devices are guaranteed to work. They come complete with a nifty little travel pouch, a charging cable, and multiple sizes of silicone buds/stabilizers for all ear sizes and types!

See, these also have controls for volume, and can double as a hands-free headset for your smartphone! Honestly, I’m shocked they managed to cram so much in such a small package. Powered by lithium-polymer batteries, they have plenty of power (Up to 8 hours!) to last you pretty much all day. If I had a nit to pick, it would be that a couple of the buttons were hard, if not nearly impossible to get to easily by our resident sausage-finger, aka, Hubby. The price is pretty steep too, considering that rival bluetooth earbuds could be had for less than half the cost, but without knowing the quality of the sound of these rivals, I can’t say, dollar for dollar, if they are truly a value. Also, at $59.99, they could have included a wall charger instead of piggy backing on one you already own, or your handy USB charging hub. But they do include a 1-year warranty, so that’s a major plus as well. So overall the positives far outweigh the few minor negatives, and I’m very happy with these PulseAudio Vitality headphones.

Ohuhu Chrome-look Automatic Soap Dispenser


 

Okay, so you know when you’ve got your hands full of schmutz, and the last thing you want to do is handle your soap dispenser, hoping it doesn’t slip out of your hands and fall on the floor? Of then have to wash the dispenser because it’s now covered in chicken goop*? Ohuhu knows your pain and wants you to suffer no more. They’ve come up with a touch-free automatic soap dispenser. There’s some pluses and some minuses here, so let’s dive right in, shall we?

To start, I think it’s mislabled. You’re led to believe that the dispenser is stainless steel, when in fact it’s chome-painted ABS plastic. It’s a little fragile-feeling too, with a strange plastic key to unlock the battery door. Once we get past that, it’s a neat little dispenser with a wide base for stability, a wall-mount kit and a large plastic reservoir for soap along with a little window in front to know when you’re getting low on soap. There’s three settings for the amount of soap dispensed, and it’s easily adjustable by the button on front. A dual-color LED on top let’s you know when it’s ready to dispense, and how much. One just needs to place your hand underneath and the motion sensor picks up your hand and dispenses.

Perfect for the kitchen, the bathroom, the garage or anywhere one might need to wash their hands, this is a neat little dispenser that I’m glad I got to try. At $19.99 (at the time of this writing) I feel it’s a touch steep for plastic, but almost makes up for it with the convenience.
