These are the Best Tech of December 2015:
Blue Lola Headphones
These are the Blue Lola headphones. They look absolutely ridiculous (in a good way of course) as they look futuristic and out of this world. I would say they're designed to provide comfort and customizability while looking unusually stylish in the process. There's a multi-jointed headband design pivoting arms to adapt to any head shape and size, ear cuffs that are shaped like ears that also just so happened to feature a sealed over the ear design for immersive isolation. These headphones feature custom 50mm fiber-reinforced ultra responsive dynamic drivers. They sound fantastic with plenty of base response, if you're interested to that sort of thing and they deliver a very crisp and clear sound. These are actually my go-to headphones the past week or so for listening to the remastered Beatles tracks, which I just so happened to be released for streaming services.
The Lola headphones can be a little bit bulky and a tad bit heavy at times. But for $250, the sound quality delivered from these cans is well worth it. Links will be down below in the description bar as well as everything else mentioned in this video, if you are interested.
Z-Prime by Ztylus
These are the Z-Prime iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus camera lenses by Ztylus. As smartphones continue to capture better and better images, the need to carry around a dedicated camera like a DSLR to capture high quality photos is diminishing, especially with lenses like these. So in the box, we have a special Ztylus case for your iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus. The two lenses we have include a wide-angle 18mm lens and a 60mm lens. They're really easy to install. You basically just press and twist and they will lock into place just like a traditional lens for a DSLR camera. There's a lens cap pre-installed as well as a safety unlock button and if you want to travel with these lenses, Ztylus even included a clip-on carrying case with a carabiner to attache these lenses to a backpack or bag or really anything you want.
To give you a sample of how they look when they are installed to your phone, here's a standard photo captured from the iPhone 6s Plus. Here's how it looks with the 18mm wide-angle lens attached and here's how it looks with the 60mm lens attached. If you want to pick up any of these lenses for your iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s Plus, you can go ahead and sign up to be notified when they are released as they are a brand new product. Once again, links will be down below.
Helix M Series Wireless Speakers
These are the Helix M Series wireless speakers, the world's first DECT wireless stereo speakers with 96KHz HD sound, 30-hour battery life, 75 foot range and pairing capability. You can pair up to 16 of these speakers together. How cool is that? I so want to make a video on that. We'll see if I can.
With your purchase, you'll get a micro USB charging cable, a lightning to USB adapter, a micro USB to USB adapter and a little USB transmitter that looks a lot like a thumb drive. All you need to do to transmit sound to the speakers is attach the transmitter to your adapter, which then plugs into your smartphone or tablet of choice and that's about it. It should turn orange and when it does, you can connect and start playing music to the speakers. When the speakers power on, the speakers themselves will tell you which position they are in-- left or right. And in terms of sound quality, these speakers sound absolutely amazing. You can easily fill up a room with a pair of speakers as they get really loud. There's a 20mm tweaker, a 68mm subwoofer and a bass port which provides a very deep bass response. Thanks in part (I think) to the box shape.
Since they work with Windows and Mac machines as well, these guys will most likely replace my current desktop speakers. For a $200/pair on Indiegogo, the Helix M Series wireless speakers certainly deserve a spot on the best tech list.
Google Pixel C Tablet
This is the Google Pixel C tablet. It's one of the few devices to release in December from a large company like Google but it's one of my favorite tablets on the market. While its build quality consists almost entirely of aluminum, it's the buttery smooth OS that really makes me fall in love with the tablet. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it's equipped with an NVIDIA Tegra X1 256-core GPU with 3GB of RAM. Google even launched two wireless keyboards alongside the Google Pixel C tablet to improve one's productivity.
I think one can easily argue that the idea that laptops offer more bang for your buck than tablets. But if you're in the market for a buttery smooth Android tablet, look no further than the Google Pixel C tablet. It's $500 off-contract. Links will be down below along with everything else I mentioned in this video.
With that said, those are some of the best tech devices for the month of December 2015.
