Cheap Plug Alert – Puro Sound Labs Free Headphone Giveway

image

The Average Nobodies wear many hats, and one of those hats is helping our friend’s headphones company out on social media. The company is called Puro Sound Labs, and they specialize in ‘Healthy Ears’ headphones and in-ear monitors. Simply put, they create headphones that limit the volume for you, so unlike most other headphones you use, they don’t damage your hearing. It’s a great company with a solid product, and they’re currently running a pretty spectacular Facebook sweepstakes.

It’s shockingly easy to enter, and honestly, who doesn’t enjoy winning free stuff while also doing minimal work? All you have to do is go to https://www.facebook.com/purosound/ and check out the contest post on the top of the page. All the entry requirements and prizes are in the post. Unless you’re great great grandfather was killed by a gang of headphones, you’d be silly not to participate.

Tech Tuesday: Keyboards, Mice, and Speakers. OH MY!

Computers are a beautiful thing, but they are only as good as the tools you use to manipulate and interact with them. Here are my pics for best looking, feeling, and sounding peripherals for your desktop or laptop.

1.) M.O.U.S 9 by Mad Catz – $127.99 (http://goo.gl/s2qkuU)

When you first lay eyes on the MOUS9 by Mad Catz you are likely to think that it is more spaceship than mouse for your computer.  This mouse, and the rest of the gaming mice that Mad Catz have to offer, are the most unique pieces of technology i’ve seen in a long time.  Meant to be fully customizable to fit your palm, these mice are the most comfortable I have ever used.  From weight, to length, and all the additional customizable buttons, this mouse was made to be used for long periods of time with little fatigue. While this mouse is primarily aimed at the gaming community I have found it useful while editing video.

2.) Das Keyboard Professional Model for Mac – $130.00 (http://goo.gl/068Y8V)1024x335_mac4

Next on my list is the Texas based keyboard company, Das Keyboard.  The one word to describe this companies line of keyboards? FEEDBACK. The single most important word when it comes to describing a keyboards feel.  When I first bought my iMac I could not stand the, basically zero, feedback of the Mac keyboards.  It did nothing for me when I wanted to type long scripts and blog posts.  But then came along Das Keyboard.  The keyboards with buttons that practically push you back! The springy feel and loud clicking sounds will surely give your fingers something to be excited about.

PS- Like the feedback but with no loud clicking noises? Das Keyboard makes silent boards as well!

3.) M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Professional Reference Speakers – $79.00 (http://goo.gl/AjPmcs)

I have just recently made the switch from my onboard speakers to these bad boys.  I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner! These are great studio monitors on the cheap.  $80 gets you two great sounding, self powered, speakers that have a built in Auxiliary and headphone plugs right in the front of the left monitor.  They pumped out big sound from a small frame, and look great on any desk.

PS- Bonus pick -Sony MDR-V150 Monitor Series Headphones – $27.00 (http://goo.gl/OFVrla)

Great sounding headphones with a long cord.  Not noise canceling, but a great pick for under $30.
