Nixon ‘The Wire’ 8mm headphones review

Nixon ‘The Wire’ 8mm headphones review

July 22, 2010 by · 100 Comments 

The Nixon ‘The Wire’ 8mm headphones are not great. They’re not horrible, but they’re not great. I went to the Apple store the other day to see if I could replace my aging Altec Lansing Backbeats and found the Nixons were the cheapest alternative that I hadn’t already tried. They looked nice enough and had […]

Altec Lansing Backbeat Plus Review

July 15, 2010 by · 111 Comments 

The Altec Lansing Backbeat Plus headphones win Chromewalker’s ‘bang for buck’ and ‘longevity’ awards. These bad boys got me through 7 months of wear and tear in my pockets.. this is a record. They’re not even dead, what happened is that I lost one of the ear buds and now I’ve had to use some […]

Suunto PC Pod Review

June 28, 2009 by · 89 Comments 

The Suunto PC Pod is very small USB stick that allows the Suunto heart rate monitor range (T3C, T4C, and apparently the T6c) to wirelessly connect to your PC and connect to Suunto’s free Training Manager Lite software. So what does it do exactly and how useful is it? Having had the T4c for a […]

There is nothing more annoying than having your newest electronic gadget’s display scratched. From that point onwards, you can’t bear looking at the screen without being reminded of your moment of negligence. Not only that, if the scratch is bad enough, you’re constantly frustrated by the hindered visibility of the display the scratch has left […]

Image by aran but whothehellgivesadamn via Flickr Today Apple released the VoiceNav iPod Shuffle. The iPod Shuffle is the lowest end iPod that Apple makes. The iPod Shuffle has been historically crippled with no way of knowing what song is playing and how to select songs or playlists for it does not have a screen. […]

Polar RS400 Review : A mega heart rate monitor for the new year’s resolutions

January 1, 2009 by · 40 Comments 

On my continued quest to find the best heart-based training tool out there, and to now seriously start my new year’s health resolutions, I got myself a Polar RS400 heart rate monitor (technically I received it for Christmas). I preferred the RS400 over the higher end (and far more expensive) RS800cx model because most of […]
