Our Initial Impressions of Aftershokz Titanium Bluetooth Headphones

We ran into Aftershokz at CES 2015 and 2016. This year they sent us a sample to review after the show. aftershocks 3 colors

We have had them for a day or so and are impressed. They sound good for playing music, listening to movies. I also tried them to talk on with my smart phone and they work rather well. To check out their website and products out go to–> AFTERSHOKZ

According to Aftershokz:

Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process—sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously. We’ve taken the concept to the next level through development of a suite of proprietary audio technologies and design patents. The result: headphones that deliver unrivaled situational awareness and comfort.


Transducers guide mini vibrations through the cheekbones to the inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering them


They come in 3 colors, we received the black or dark gray ones and are impressed by their style, design and the quality seems nice.

They seem to be rather innovative and interesting and are great for talking on the phone while driving which is safer than holding the phone, during sports like running and biking. Aftershokz headphones are sturdy and sweat resistant as well.

We would definitely recommend them to people that do outdoor activities or for conversations on your smartphone or for use at the gymnasium.

Here is an interesting graphic showing the internal design of the awesome Aftershokz headphones:

Our Review of Toughtested’s USB Cable and Charger!

tough logo

We recently ran into the folks at Tough Tested, a Mizco company, at CES 2016. They sent us 2 products to test, and are sending us some Bluetooth headphones soon as well. We recently received a rugged usb cable and a usb wall charger for usb devices.

Not only are the products nice, I really like their rugged packaging as well. The cable for usb is strong, and flexible and seems well made and rugged. It is a nice product.

tough cable boxtough cabletough charger

The wall charger is also solid, rubberized and seems to be well made. We were impressed by both. In my perception, anyone that needs rugged accessories, speakers and headphones ought to heavily consider Toughtested’s products. We had also tried a set of their wired in ear headphones too last year, and they are also very nice. They sound good and stay in the ears very well. One can also use them with their built in Microphone to talk to people and do conference calls as well. If you need nice, rugged devices or know someone that works in construction, the military, Law enforcement or a Fire Department, I would recommend Toughtested’s products. We love them and would love to test more devices.

My Review: Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS Headphones

Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS

I ran into the folks from Audio-Technica recently at CES 2014. After a bit of time I finally have the opportunity to test and review  2 of their headphones. This review covers their in-ear model the SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS Headphones.


I have been testing some over the ear headphones recently for a variety of manufacturers’s with several more coming down the pipeline. I am all about the music, am working on establishing a foundation for autism and the arts and music if I ever get funding. I am a hyper functioning autistic tech and autism blogger, my 3 kids and I as well as my wife are rather fond of music and the arts.

I like Audio-Technica for the quality of their products and their history in music.

According to Audio technica:

Audio-Technica—Audio pioneer in high-performance sound design 

Established in 1962, Audio-Technica is a worldwide group of companies devoted to the design, manufacture, marketing and distribution of problem-solving audio equipment. Initially known for state-of-the-art phonograph cartridges, A-T now creates high-performance microphones, headphones, wireless systems, mixers and electronic products for home and professional use. 

Winner of numerous industry awards, Audio-Technica manufactures products that set quality, durability and price/performance standards for live sound tours, broadcast and recording studios, corporate and government facilities, house-of-worship venues, and more. A-T microphones are chosen for critical government installations such as the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. Audio-Technica microphones and wireless systems are also selected for major broadcast music events, including the GRAMMY® Awards and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. 


In regards to in-ear headphones I am impressed by the design and build quality of the SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iS Headphones . The one I received are black, but they are available in a variety of colors as seen here–>


They ought to appeal to a variety of users from business folk, to teens to seniors as well.

The headphones are some of the better designed in ear headphones that I have so far had the opportunity to test.

They also have a built in microphone for those of us who have to do the occasional conference call or who want to use them to talk on your smartphone when a blue tooth headset is unavailable.

These fine sonic fuel in ear headphones due to their interesting and innovative connection to ones ears, are likely to be useful while at the gymn, riding a bike, watching a movie or listening to music.


As mentioned previously, I like their design quality.

As far as audio quality I tried them and a few of our other people to test them too, as well as one of my teen-agers.

For jazz, blues, light rock, most folk music the sound quality was nice. For my son’s dubstep or rap type music, the bass performance was not as good as some of the over the ear speakers that are going to be reviewed from Audio-Technica soon.


In terms of their usefulness, Audio-Technica provides 4  different sized ear tips and 3 different C-tips (and a pouch to keep it all in) so you shouldn’t have a problem finding one that fits for you.

Personally I have large ears, so the connectors that came with the box work well for me and kelp the headphones in my ears most of the time.

I would agree with Audio Technica in regards to their statement with regards to Sonicfuel headphones:


Music is your energy for life – the fuel for your heart and soul. SonicFuel™ headphones are specifically designed for active, daily use, to power you forward by delivering extraordinary comfort, style and an immersive listening experience that never sounds artificial, processed or filtered. Just pure sonic goodness for the high-octane tempo of your life. 

The ATH-CKX5iS SonicFuel in-ear headphones feature stay-in-place fit, providing unique comfort in addition to optimal sound. The C-tip configuration nestles within the ear where it locks in place for extra stability. A 360˚ rotating eartip adjusts to the unique angle of your ear canal for personalized fit and improved sound isolation. 

In-line volume and microphone controls (on compatible smartphones) allow you to control music & phone calls without missing a beat. 

Wrap Up:

If you are seeking very nice in-ear headphones that sound good, look nice, and stay in your ears, these ought to be near the top of the list. They retail for about $ 50. If these are this nice, I am curious how their higher priced in-ear headphones sound. I would definitely recommend these headphones and found them to be very nice.

I was provided with a set of the Audio-Technica SonicFuel ATH-CKX5iSBK headphones for the purpose of this review and these are the headphones featured in some of the images above, the photo of the different colored headphones is a stock image. As always, this represents my true and honest opinion.

World-famous DJs wish Happy 25th Birthday to the Sennheiser HD 25

Old Lyme, CT, September 16, 2013 Iconic, cult, legendary: only a product that inspires passion and remains in demand after 25 years earns this level of acclaim. Launched in 1988, Sennheiser’s HD 25 has come to define the ultimate DJ headphone. Alongside the launch of a new edition – the HD 25 ALUMINIUM, the anniversary is being marked by 25 of the world’s greatest DJs, who wish the iconic headphone a “Happy Birthday” and explain its essential role in their music and performance.

 HD 25-1 II

Top DJs and their HD 25s The stories and memories

Over the past 25 years many of the world’s greatest DJs have selected Sennheiser’s HD 25 as their first choice of headphone, with some using theirs over years and even decades. That enduring appeal is expressed by 25 of the world’s leading DJs (and HD 25 fans), who send their birthday wishes in a special film by Sennheiser. Star DJs including QBert, Bob Sinclar, and Luciano describe how their HD 25s become an integral part of performance and the experience of music itself. They also share stories of their first DJ performances, describe the feeling of playing to an audience and the role their headphones play in delivering a great performance. To watch the Happy Birthday HD 25 video and exclusive DJ interviews, visit www.sennheiser.com/dj.


That special something: What makes the HD 25 the perfect DJ headphone?

Built for a life behind the decks, the HD 25’s highly insulated rotatable capsules deliver high levels of background noise attenuation, make one-ear monitoring easy, and stay comfortable when worn for long periods. And the daily punishment of professional use is more than matched by its robust build quality and serviceability.


But keeping the world’s greatest DJs happy is about more than the features and specifications. For DJ legend and four-time DMC champion QBert, the magic of the HD 25 is its precise signature sound, a characteristic that’s prized by many DJs: “My ears are accustomed to the Sennheiser sound. I love that the HD 25s have a flat sound, so you hear how the music really is – not coloured, but pure – the way the artist wanted to put their music out. I’ll be using these for 50 years – 100 years!”


“I’ve been using the HD 25 for a long time and Sennheiser headphones even longer – they made the first headphones I ever used!” said Swiss-Chilean DJ, Luciano. Likewise, Canadian superstar DJ Mike Shannon has found over the course of his career that the HD 25s are built to last: “I’ve been using the HD 25s since they came out,” he explains. Commenting on the sound performance, which offers tightly controlled bass and detailed treble while handling high sound pressure levels, Shannon said: “The clarity of the sound, it’s a clean reference – it’s very real. In the studio, listening to a mix, the sound is tight – it’s one to one with how it’s intended.”


Like Shannon, Parisian electro house DJ, producer and label boss Martin Solveig has had a lifelong affair with the HD 25: “I’ve never ever DJed without it. If you look online at the pictures of all my performances and every party you’ll never see me using another headphone. It’s the only piece of equipment I’ve never changed. The reason is the same reason everyone will tell you – it’s the best headphone. The response is linear enough to be trusted even in a studio or recording situation. Of course, I know the sound, and it matches the references in my head – I’m formatted to this headphone!”


In daily use, performance has to be matched with comfort and durability. Ibiza legend and Pacha resident Andy Baxter explains that the headphones’ longevity also reflects its perfect blend of both sound and a robust design that offers a great fit over long periods of use: “I’ve been using the HD 25 for many years now – there’s no more comfortable headphone out there that can deliver such good sound quality, for myself and for many of my favourite DJs that use the HD 25, too. Happy 25 years of listening pleasure to the one and only Sennheiser!”


The HD 25 ALUMINIUM – The cult classic reborn

Marking the 25-year milestone, Sennheiser has launched the HD 25 ALUMINIUM, a new version featuring a unique, premium aluminium construction. Taking the legend into the future, the HD 25 ALUMINIUM naturally delivers peerless sound quality in a headphone that is now even more desirable. With earcups lathed individually from single blocks of strong, lightweight aluminium, the HD 25 ALUMNIUM is ready for a lifetime in the DJ booth. Find out more at: sennheiser.com/hd-25-aluminium

As with all other models in the MOMENTUM family, the headband of the MOMENTUM On-Ear is made of stainless steel.

The sound of these headphones is also clear and uncompromising, creating a sound experience in which even the tiniest details can be heard. Equipped with high-end 18-ohm transducers, MOMENTUM On-Ear guarantees full stereo sound with a slight bass emphasis in a frequency range from 16 to 22,000 Hz. Thanks to their closed, on-ear design, these headphones isolate the listener from external noise to ensure a great listening experience on the move – even in noisy urban environments.

Perfection in every detail
