I’ve been using the Bose AE2W Wireless Bluetooth headphones for a while now. I’m truly amazed at their quality (sound and make), their comfort and useability.
There’s a more detailed review over at Bose AE2W, this post is just to confirm my early review. These things are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone.
However have found that the built-in mic can pick up the sound of the wind when on the phone and that the omni-button for play/pause etc. is less than easy to press, it has a dull push which makes it hard to double-click quickly to change songs.

The first half of this post is about my other contenders for a suitable headphone, if you want to skip that, you can jump straight to the winning Bose AE2W review below.
Recently I decided I needed some good headphones, I’m currently using the iPhone 5 default headphones for around 4-5 hours a day and their half in-ear approach, while good for short periods, is not comfortable in the long run and the sound quality is nothing to write home about.

I have used Sennheiser’s headphone before and while many of the older models are amazing they are certifiably not mobile or built for general use (a.k.a life-style design).

I’ve recently made the move to Linux as my main OS, (post soon to come) and so over the last few weeks/months, I’ve been looking into different Linux based OS’s, to replace my Mac+Coda+Transmit workflow.
Now, most of my staff (admin and sales) run on Ubuntu Linux due to it’s simplicity, compatibility and effectiveness out-of-the-box and the Unity GUI is perfect for new comers, even if it is a tad cumbersome and frustrating for Linux veterans.
One of the Linux OS’s I’ve been looking into recently is CrunchBang 10 (a.k.a ‘#!’). Continue reading “Linux Review: CrunchBang 10…”
