Bose AE2W Follow-up Review…

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.

Even when considering these two short-falls, they are still the best headphones I’ve ever used. The battery life is very long-lasting, takes days of music to require a recharge!

Bose AE2W Review…

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 was looking to spend a decent amount of money on some really nice headphones that will work well while out-and-about, while in the office and stand the test of time. My maximum budget was around £300 ($450).

After the basic Googling (using the verb Googling to reference DuckDuckGo) I found the Sennheiser Momentum (http://en-uk.sennheiser.com/on-ear-headphone-momentum-stereo), Sennheiser’s first mobile/life-style designed headphones. 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).

If by Whiskey…

My love for good Whiskey stared a few years back. Now I’m not talking Jack Daniels or Bells the drinks that everyone has from the age of 16 18 21, but real, Whiskey.

Since it has now become more of a collection obsession rather than just a better drink, here come the posts…

It all started in an Airport and some mystery older woman and some spare must-spend-or-it-wont-count holiday money. I bowled it into some liqueur shop and gave her the old “I like JD etc, can you suggest something better for around £25?”.

Obviously realising she had a noob on her hands, she paused and pointed me to Glenfiddich 12yr without a fuss and without smiting my noobish demeanour.

After a flight with some rather exasperated flight attendants, and a few more Glenfiddich 12yr over the coming months.

I found myself with a nice collection of green bottles on my fake-fireplace shelf.

Glenfiddich 12yr (although I didn’t know it then) as The Whiskey Flavour, the wooden, spiced, Scottish grunt that all the best Whiskeys do…

Linux Review: CrunchBang 10…

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…”
