AcousticSheep SleepPhones Classic headphones review – CES 2014

AcousticSheep SleepPhones Classic

From AcousticSheep comes SleepPhones, the “pajamas for your ears”. These are headphones designed as a sleek and soft headband to be worn at night and while you fall sleep.

I review the AcousticSheep SleepPhones Classic model above, but they are available in a Bluetooth wireless model. The SleepPhones are made from a majority of recycled plastics to be environmental friendly and have flat speakers that slip easily in and out of the headband. This allows you to remove them for easy washing of the headband or replacing of the flat speakers.

The sound quality was good and the fit was very comfortable, even after hours of wearing it. Your forehead and ears can get warm wearing it for long times, but not from the speakers, just from the soft material they use. You can get  AcousticSheep SleepPhones Classic in a few colors and styles as I mention in the video.

I toss them into my luggage for travel and even use them on international flights for more comfort. Check out their selection on Amazon right here http://idonot.es/sleepphone and see the video for more of my thoughts.

Their website even offers hours of downloadable sounds for relaxation, extension cables, splitters and one of their real stuffed sheep. Also a runner model

Audio Technica Sonic Fuel ATH CKX7iS review – CES 2014

Audio-Technica ath_ckx7is red

The Audio-Technica Sonic Fuel ATH-CKX7iS headphones for your Smartphone as a great fitting and excellent sounding headset. With the numerous size inserts and hooks provided they will fit any ear.

The sound from the Audio-Technica Sonic Fuel ATH-CKX7iS headphones was excellent and the noise cancellation of background sounds when using the microphone was great on all test calls. It successfully cancelled out background car noise, most normal volume music and even downtown sidewalk sounds.

The only issue we had with the Audio-Technica Sonic Fuel ATH-CKX7iS headset was the placement of the microphone. It was on the back of the volume control and when it hung away from your mouth it lost considerable volume and even broke up your conversation due to the noise cancellation.

We also wished the identifier for which side was for which ear was easier to read or see. A few people we handed the headset to could not find it.  Watch the video for more of our thoughts.
