Amkette Trubeats SLIX Review

c2-03 earpiece problemAmkette Trubeats SLIX Review
Without giving too much about this radio accessory short article, but I found it remarkable and relevant to what Im currently doing.

Delhi-based electronic hardware manufacturer Amkette has added another headset to its line of Trubeats audio headsets–Trubeats SLIX. The device is ideal for those looking for a wireless headset to use with Bluetooth enabled devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops. Trubeats SLIX are quite a tempting deal when looking at its price. Those who are a little tight on budget might find it as a good investment. So, should you buy this or not? Lets find out.

Specifications
Wireless Interface: Bluetooth v2.1
Range: 80dBm
Bluetooth Profiles: A2DPi.2, HFP1.5, AVRCP1.0, HSP
Battery Type: Rechargeable 150mAh Li-Ion
Operational Time: >5 Hours
Charging Time: 100 Hours
Weight: 32 grams

Contents
The SLIX come in nice packaging. The headset is available in dark red and in black. Contents of the box include a Quick Start Guide, a pair of smaller ear buds and a micro USB data cable for charging the headset. The larger earbuds come pre-fit on the headset and in case they are too big for your ears, you can remove them and put on the smaller ones.

The letdown was that the bigger earbuds are too big and the smaller ones are too small and sadly Amkette hasnt supplied medium sized earbuds. The earpieces do sit well in the ears though, thanks to the good design and light weight of just 32 grams. The headset is easy to carry and use.

Build and design
The Trubeats SLIX has been designed quite cleverly. The headset has a sporty, lean look; and it sits comfortably on the back of the neck due to the ergonomic design of the wire that joins the two ends of the headset. The curve of the wire is precise and it never loses its bend even after rough handling. You can keep the headset inside your bag without any protection and they would still come out of the bag in the same shape. You can keep the headset in your pocket as well without damaging or ruining its shape as the headsets reset to their original shape without any issues.

An interesting feature of the SLIX is the magnetic clips placed at each end of the earpiece. This makes the earpieces snap together when not in use and prevents it from getting tangled with other items in a bag. It has angled earpieces that fit nicely in the ear. But in case you are wearing a hoodie or too many clothes, it might get difficult for the headset to fit properly as the attached wire is not adjustable.

The volume control button which is also used as a power on/off, play/pause and for receiving and answering calls, is located on the left earpiece right above the earbud. The left earpiece also features the micro USB port for charging. The LED is also featured on the front of the left earpiece, and notifies the user about battery and connectivity status. The right earpiece features two buttons for changing tracks.

The best feature of the headset is its minimalist design; there are no long wires or large earpieces to be concerned about.

Usability
The Trubeats SLIX is easy to operate due to its one-button functionality– the volume button does most of the work; including making, receiving, ending or rejecting calls. Holding the volume button down puts the headset in a pairing mode and once it has found the device for pairing, the user only needs to let go of the button and permit the headset to pair with the device. The headset flashes different colors to indicate when it is looking for a device, when it pairs with one, and when it disconnects. The controls are completely different than conventional wireless headphones but once you get used to them, the SLIX is a delight to use. You wont spend much time in pairing this headset to any Bluetooth enabled device.

The SLIX supports A2DP1.2, HFP1.5, AVRCP1.0 and HSP Bluetooth profiles and works on Bluetooth 2.1 interface.

Call and Music performance
The SLIX has a range of 10 meters which is adequate enough for use with smartphones, tablets, laptops or PCs and even PCs. There are multiple pauses once the recommended distance is crossed over.

The microphone is located in the left earpiece. The sensitivity of the microphone is average and we didn’t find any real problem while using the SLIX for calls. We used the headset in different environments and found that due to its unimpressive noise cancellation, you will have to increase the volume to a full level in order to have clear calls. That worked for us though its ideal for use in quiet environments.

The volume of the SLIX is pretty loud and audiophiles looking for loud wireless headphones wont be disappointed. But at full volume, music quality suffers as with any low-end headphones. The headset is ideal for listening to music at medium volumes. The lows and highs suffer at higher volumes which sound too harsh on ears. At full volume, the headphone is so loud that you can even hear the sounds without the need to put it on your ears. The lows are quite impressive but we were disappointed by its mids and highs. If you are into bass, then the SLIX should suffice especially for its price. The mid and high frequencies sound quite artificial at higher volumes, however.

Battery
The Trubeats SLIX features a 150mAh battery which takes around 3 hours to charge. We would have liked if such a small battery did not take such a long time to charge. The battery can be charged by connecting the headset to a laptop/PC or a mobile charger via the micro USB port. The SLIX can continuously play music for just above 5 hours which is a decent playback time and enough for daily use; but people who listen to music on the go will need to keep a recharging option handy. On an average, a single charge should suffice for a day.

Verdict
The Trubeats SLIX is a decent headset and for a price of around Rs.3000, it is a good deal. The volumes are pretty loud and the music playback quality is quite decent. Audiophiles may not be impressed but for someone who is looking for a decent quality wireless headphones at an affordable price, then the Trubeats SLIX is worth buying. Flipkart sells the headset at an even lower price of Rs.2649.

Jawbone launches new Era BT earpiece, offers compelling reasons for this wearable

What will you do if i said I have found a radio accessory short article that is not only interesting but informative as well? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the educational, excellent and fascinating editorial

The last time I checked out a Jawbone Bluetooth earpiece was in 2010 with the ICON and that was when I gave up on wireless earpieces. Jawbone just announced their next generation headset, the new Jawbone Era, available at Jawbone.com and Verizon for $129.99.

Admittedly, when I see someone with a BT earpiece in today I think they are either a bit arrogant in thinking their conversations are more important than those around them or that they are out of touch with the latest technology. Neither may be true, but it just feels like BT headsets have gone the way of portable navigation devices. However, we are seeing that both may be coming back into fashion as technology continues to evolve and the use cases for such devices make even more sense than they used to.

I talked with Gernard Feril from Jawbone and was intrigued to hear about their findings regarding headset usage that closely match how I use my smartphones and earbuds. Jawbone designed the new Era to satisfy the consumer with these needs.

As you all know, smartphones have gotten significantly larger over the last couple of years and now more than ever a Bluetooth earpiece makes even more sense. Jawbones data shows the following:

I have been using the new Jawbone Era for a day and have to say I think this headset is perfect for many of my audio needs and I may be going back to using a Bluetooth earpiece. Its still early in my evaluation and I plan to write up a full review after a couple of weeks, but so far I am quite impressed with its performance and slick design.

The new Era is 42 percent smaller than their previous generation Era, which is quite an amazing feat considering the last Era was already quite small. It weighs almost nothing, actually just 6 grams, and you likely won’t even notice it in your ear. They also developed a charging case, designed to go with you, that extends the talk time to a total of ten hours.

I commute on a train for a couple hours a day, am on phone calls for about an hour a day, use my phone for all my music, and am a heavy consumer of podcasts. I use wired earbuds for most of these audio experiences, but carrying earbuds, untangling the cable, and wrestling with the cable and my backpack are a bit of a hassle. It also limits my range of motion and completely isolates me from the world around me.

I dont necessarily need full stereo performance with two earbuds for podcasts, calls, and music so plan to use the new Jawbone Era for a couple weeks to see if this small headset is a better option for my lifestyle.

The new Jawbone Era uses Jawbones new NoiseAssassin 4.0 noise cancellation technology and with all of the construction near my office and Seattle noise I will be sure to put this technology to the test soon. The new earpiece also supports wideband audio and a couple of the devices I have support this so that is another function I plan to evaluate.

The earpiece package includes 1 medium silicone earbud for the left ear and a small, medium, and large earbud for the right ear. I used to wear my Bluetooth earpiece in my left ear and luckily the medium seems to fit well. I will try my right ear with the different sizes too since I do plan to go running with the Jawbone Era to test its ability to stay in my ear with lots of movement.

The new Jawbone headset iOS and Android application just launched this morning so I have only spent a couple minutes with it and cannot yet comment on its functionality. The software is designed to let you customize the voices on your headset, access your favorite playlists, and even locate your headset if it is lost. I will be sure to cover this in my review.

The Jawbone Era will be available in four colors; black, silver, brown, and red. It is priced at $129.99 for the headset and charging case and $99.99 just for the headset. Verizon and Jawbone.com have it available now with the Era coming to Apple, AT&T, and Best Buy stores in the future.

Let me know if you have any specific questions you want answered in my full review and I will be sure to test things out and cover the topics then.

When you have any questions regarding where by and the way to utilize Communication Earpiece, it is possible to call us in the web page.

The Universal Translator

You might be safe in the knowledge that I bring the best technological advancement articles, several of them are my very own a number of them are curated by me, when i decide to use somebody elses content it’s because it is appropriate to my readership, so feel confident you are reading the best from my industry.

Originally conceived by science fiction writer Murray Leinster and utilized in his 1945 novella ‘First Contact’, the universal translator is a device that translates any language into a language known to the device’s user.

Most people reading this article will be infinitely more familiar with the universal translator as featured in ‘Star Trek’ and its various incarnations. Star Trek’s version of the translator is actually an extremely effective plot device, allowing aliens from anywhere in the universe to speak perfect English, even if they have never met a Human being a day in their lives (and thus allowing the writers of ‘Star Trek’ the freedom to not have to explain why each alien race speaks English so well in every other episode). In reality, alien linguistics would likely be so alien that they could take generations to decipher and even prove to be impossible for Human vocal chords to mimic.

On a more ‘down to earth’ level, a universal translator would decode any/all languages spoken on earth instantly (or near-instantly), allowing a person speaking Mandarin Chinese to freely converse with a person speaking Hindi with no miscommunications whatsoever.

Why we want it:

Such technology could really benefit the Human race in its quest for world peace.

In much the same way that the Internet has made it harder for various politically motivated factions to create propaganda about those they wish to invade (because now we can simply ask them if the stories are true or not), a universal translator would help people to reach a shared understanding.

Nothing would ever be lost in translation and everything would be clearly and effectively understood.

The downside, of course, is that people would not have to learn another language in order to communicate with other people, this, I feel, really would be a shame, as a culture’s views, experiences and legacy are often enshrined in its language, meaning that learning another language really is a window into a larger world with many different points of view.

When can we expect it?

You can see a crap version of this technology if you use ‘Google Translate’, but that’s only useful if you’re decoding simple phrases and words.

Early versions of the universal translator as seen in ‘Star Trek’ (and other series), do actually exist. American troops in Iraq employed the TRANSTAC program, (which automatically translated Arabic-English), before replacing it with the BOLT program (Broad Operational Language Translation), which serves as the current version of the US army translator.

However, the translator that allows us to freely chat in two distinct languages (and still be understood) has yet to be invented. In my estimation, the technology could one day exist and we’ll probably see its true prototype within the next 50 years, as such an invention will likely become a necessity of business by the mid 21st Century.

If I had to pick someone who was likely to invent it, I’d go with Google. It is in their best interests to come up with it first.

Remember that scene in ‘Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home’ where the crew of the Enterprise fly back in time to the mid 1980’s and Doc McCoy encounters an elderly Woman who needs kidney dialysis. Exploding in disbelief, the great doctor cries “what’s this, the dark ages!?” before giving the Lady a tablet that rapidly grows her a new kidney, much to her delight. That’s where we might be within a couple of decades – ‘Star Trek’ technology. What could be cooler than that?

Joining the NHS organ donor list is a way you may help this example, today.
