Mo-Fi: Powered Hi-Fi Headphones with Built-in Amp by Blue

Blue Microphones Mo-Fi Powered High-Fidelity Headphones with Integrated Audiophile AmplifierBlue, the makers of the Yeti USB Microphone, have just introduced Mo-Fi: the first headphone that delivers real audiophile performance and sound quality from a variety of devices.

Mo-Fi is no ordinary headphone. From the multi-jointed design to earcups shaped—gasp—like ears, we completely reimagined the form and functionality, without any preconceived notions about what headphones are “supposed” to look like. The result feels less like a headphone, and more like a high-quality instrument you can wear. Some call it radical. We just call it Mo-Fi.

The Mo-Fi has an integrated audiophile amp and custom-matched drivers that deliver unrivaled sound. They might look different, but they feature a revolutionary personalized fit for superior comfort and performance. These are powered headphones, meaning they feature a built-in amp that allows for a much stronger and louder signal no matter what the audio source. They also come with a 1 meter cable with an attached MFi mic, a 3 meter cable and a 6.5mm to 3.5mm adapter.

I’m big on aesthetics, design, style, quality, and substance, and you immediately have the sense that a lot of attention was paid to these headphones. They are awesome.”

You can find the Mo-Fi on Amazon for $350. Here is a full list of features:

94fifty-smart-basketball

Amazon offers the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball for $199.99 with free shipping. That’s $50 below list and a match for the best price we’ve ever seen.

It may not make you as sick as King LBJ, but the plethora of stats this basketball and app can provide will certainly up your game: dribble force/speed, shot speed, shot backspin, shot arc, more. You can even pair it up with Google Glass to have quicker access to this information.

Other features include wireless battery charging, auto sleep mode, and up to 8 hours of battery life.

It’s fast – about 100 millisecond speed from action to visual display. The ball measures any forces applied to it – spin, acceleration, you name it. A full 360 degree view of the ball – and the player that moves it. The ball is going to give you data and feedback about your game that is smart, precise, and freakishly accurate. Yeah, it’s that good.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars by dozens of Amazon reviewers. Adding that it’s “not a gimmick or fancy toy.”

LG announces availability details for “the world’s first OLED TV with 4K resolution”

LG_4K_OLED_TV2

This morning LG announced details on the sale of the “the world’s first OLED TV with 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution.” Initially coming in 65 and 77-inch variants, the curved displays will mark the first time Ultra HD OLED TVs will be regularly available at retail.

The new premium displays feature LG’s proprietary Four-Color Pixel WRGB technology, 33 million sub-pixels, and self-lighting pixels that “guarantee deeper blacks.” Both the 65EC9700 and 77EG9700 models can be wall mounted and feature a similar frame and stand aesthetic as LG’s already available 1080p curved OLED TV.

The built-in ULTRA SURROUND sound audio system was designed in conjunction with the knowledgeable folks at Harman Kardon to create a “rich, detailed environment that heightens the viewer’s sense of immersion.” At 3840 pixels wide, these displays are just shy of standard 4K resolution.

Head below for a quick look at the Ultra HD OLEDs as well as pricing and availability details:
