The 350m Earphones feature Scosche’s tapLINE Control buttons that let you control your iPhone, iPod and even your Mac! The tapLINE feature works great and has 3 buttons, volume up/down, play/pause. You can control your Mac’s iTunes and Quicktime. The tapLINE also has a mic and makes a great headset for your iPhone or even just record your voice with your iPhone or iPod. The 350m have great strong and punchy bass but the highs are somewhat not clear, Scosche claims these are audiophile grade earphones, I cannot say so myself. They are great for normal users and the tapLINE feature really adds a lot for those who are looking for that Apple earphone replacement. Another nice feature is that you can change the color of your earphones with the 5 additional color caps included, also included is a very nice soft pouch to hold your earphone and accessories. The fit is very comfortable and you get many different silicone ear tips, there is minimal sound isolation but the 350m do not have a sound isolation feature anyway. These earphone will work with most iPods including the new Shuffle and all iPhones. These earphones are also available without the tapLINE but Iwould strongly recommend getting the tapLINE version. Scosche has many other models that you can choose from. Price $54.99.

The new 1337 by Incipio is gaming silicone case for the Apple iPad that provides extreme comfortable grip by implementing four grips on each corner. While the 1337 provides excellent comfortable grip to your iPad it also adds bulk and weight. This was not really an issue for me as I got used to handling the iPad with the 1337 on. After I found my comfortable position that i liked to grip my iPad. The 1337 case is made out of very soft and smooth silicone that is also very durable and not flimsy. Once on the iPad it stays on tight and firmly all around without having to worry where you’re placing your fingers. Also the 1337 completely covers the entire aluminum bezel of the iPad and it’s edges are very well rounded and smooth.
All the ports are accessible but because of the bulkiness the rotation lock and headphones jack are a little recessed. The quality of the silicone used by Incipio is just outstanding. You will notice a beehive-like pattern in the inside to help keep the weight to a minimum. However it still packs some weight. The gaming grips are smoothed out making it very comfortable to hold the iPad it different positions. I found it much more comfortable to hold while having the 1337 case on. Also because of the thickness of the silicone and added bump-like grips, the 1337 provides tons of back and side impact protection. There is a nice lay on the table bezel rim too. After using Incipio’s 1337 gaming grip I found that the silicone actually does very well with lint and attracts very little to no lint. The 1337 comes with a clear screen protector and a cleaning cloth. It is Available in red, yellow and blue. Price $34.99.
The Sennheiser IE6 are the lowest in the IE series of Sound Isolating In-Ears however they are great performers and well worth their price tag. The IE6 deliver superb sound quality that will surely out preform many In-Ears in the similar price range, the IE6 have fantastic well balanced bass that isn't overpowering and tight. If you're looking for optimal bass response and custom tuning then you will want to check out Sennheiser's IE8 with of course a much larger price tag. The IE6 have super clear and detailed highs and mids, they do have a nice non muddy warm sound due to the dynamic drivers which most people love. The IE6 come with many silicone ear tips that make listening to your music very enjoyable and comfortable for long periods of time but to get the best performance and sound quality out of your IE6 i would recommend getting some foam tips instead, that way you get much better sound isolation and a little more bass response.
You can wear the IE6 directly in you ear or wrap then around you ear and insert them into your ear, both methods are great and will stay securely inside you ear. The design is a little outdated for me and I find the design of both the IE7 & IE8 far more modern and sleek to my taste however the IE6 have great build quality and the audio cable is very durable. The 3.5mm audio jack is L shaped and also very well built, you will still be able to use it with an iPad, iPhone and such with cases on. Sennheiser has really put a lot of thought into the packaging of the IE series, you will find a very nice looking hard carry case for you IE6 that will store them neatly and securely inside, although I found it to be a little too bulky to carry around. The Sennhesier IE6 are a fantastic pair of In-Ears that deliver great sound for a great price. Price $259.95 - Available for much less on Amazon.com.
NewKinetix Re allows you to use your iPhone or iPod Touch as a universal remote control for almost any device with an IR receiver like a T.V/DVD Player/Cable or Dish Box and much more. All you need is to download the free Re app to your iPhone or iPod Touch and plug in your Re IR adapter. The Re app is very easy to set up and within minutes you will be using your iDevice to control your T.V and more, the Re has a huge built in IR code database so all you need to do is select the brand of device you have and the name and you will be instantly connected it's that simple! I found it to be very easy to use and navigate thru the app and controls, although there are some minor issues like volume control, i had to switch between my cable box to my T.V in order to change the volume but i'm sure that will get fixed in the next app update. There is no lag when pressing the control buttons and everything is super responsive, so responsive that the Re made my stock cable box remote look bad. The Re only has 1 IR transmitter on the side of the adapter, so if you think you can control your device from crazy angles you can forget about it. It works great when pointed straight at the IR receiver of the device you are controlling and some.
The Re adapter is ultra light, but very big in my opinion. With all that space i would expect NewKinetix to at least provide 2 IR transmitters for better angle controllability. A nice addition to the Re adapter is a little neoprene carry pouch that's included however only for a limited time. The Re works very well and is much easier to set up then a normal universal remote that's for sure! The Re will work with any iPhone or iPod Touch model. Price $69.95.
