Product Review - Sennheiser HD 280 Pro - Over the ear Headphones

Hi Guys, 

Headphones being my first love and what best can when I can go in pursuit of perfect sound with Sennheiser headphones. May be my search will end once I have listened to Momentum by Sennheiser. But for the moment the topic of review is their HD 280 Pro which my brother was using since a year. I tested the same against my other headphones and found this one to be simply wiping all the competition in it's category.

The audio output of these headphones is really amazing in the price range they fit in. These are available in India at around Rs 6500 at flipkart and amazon. The sound quality is superb and you will fall in love all over again with all the music played on these headphones.

The headphones can be rotated for usage of DJ's if using a single earphone and the cable is telephone cable like wired for elongated operation. 

The padding over the ear is soft and really fits the ears completely. The weight of the headphones is on a bit heavy and will not be comfortable for long period of use. But you can use these ones as a noise cancellation earphones too during long flights and train journeys as these headphones are made for high-noise environment conditions. It will be a cheaper alternative considering the noise cancellations headphones prices.

HD 280 is a professional version of headphones which will give you value for money and makes your journey with these full of great music. I love Sennheiser and being using the ones I have and the list is adding continuously as I get more and more of these in my life. 

Looking forward to gain some Momentum in the Sennheiser style...

An Android App a day - 29. PvZ 2 - Plants vs Zombies 2

Hi Guys, 

Electronic Arts Inc has done it again and this time they have made the sequel much more fantastic than the earlier one. After having fun playing the first version of Plants vs Zombies, the game Plants vs Zombies 2- It's about time - has went further into three worlds - Ancient Egypt, Pirates Seas, Wild West. Other worlds are in the making and will come may be in the new year.

The different worlds are made nicely and offers a lot of graphics and new powers suiting the game. The background music also suits the worlds. I have not been able to control myself and been playing the games from the time I have the same in my HTC One. The game is somewhat heavy to download on 3G as it takes 250 MB game data. 

The whole game has a mystery feeling to it and it gives you a feeling to carry on playing ON and ON. Killing zombies across various background settings requires a lot of strategy in place. A new powerful plants have also been launched along with some of the manual intervention powers enabled for the player to kill the zombies.

The game can be downloaded from Google Play Store from -

Overall the game is really awesome and install it asap to enjoy the uninterrupted fun.

App rating - 4.5/5

Product Review - LG HBS-700 Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

Hi Guys, 

A lot and lot of bluetooth headsets are continuously coming in the market with better designs and features that really makes us go buy them. LG Electronics has also launched HBS-700 in two colors - Black and White for listening to music and calls on the go. The design of the device makes it really unique and can be easily kept hanging around the neck. It's really lightweight with many unique features like magnetic earbuds which attaches themselves with the device easily.

The headsets are rechargeable and gives you more than 8 hours of uninterrupted music and calling. The music and call controls are on both ends of the headsets and are really easy to operate. 

The sound quality via earbuds is great with it's noise isolation. At full volumes also the earphones sound doesn't distort. This is really a must buy for those who wants to take music on their jogging or gym. I really loved the device a lot and with a lot of features in such a small price it's true value for money device to go for. Bluetooth pairing is easy and can be done almost instantly.

The device can be bought from Amazon  for around US$ 50. It can be recharges using the same mini usb cable you get for your android devices.

Though there is no mute button on the device for calling but that's not there in any bluetooth device as such. I tried the device by borrowing it from my brother who has been using it since an year or so. LG made the headsets easy to carry around the neck the whole day forgetting that you are actually having one.

Product Review - Harman Kardon CL Headphones

Hi Guys, 

Headphones is one thing that I love a lot and always in search to try a lot of them till the time I find my perfect partner. I am not a loyal to any one company in terms of headphones but I do have Sennheiser, Bose, Sony, HP, Philips and many more. I will keep looking for the best one till I get one for my personal use and not just to review :-)

Harman Kardon CLassic is a niche brand of headphones and comes in a big box with metallic body and a cable with built in audio controls and voice. This cable can be used with iPhones for voice calling too. It also comes with extra large sized metallic headband so that the user can use the headphones as per your head size. 

These headphones are priced at around Rs 9000 in India on flipkart ( amazon) and produces a rich and awesome sound. They ear cushions are soft and the headphones are heavy with it's metallic console and headband. They fit nicely over the ears and gives you a kind of noise isolation too.

But due to their metallic design and heavy weight you may feel tired to listen to these ones for longer period of time. It happens in day to day use that you want something light to carry around the ears. 

These Harman Kardon headphones comes with a nice leather cover to pack your heaphones and they fit into the pouch horizontally due to the amazing flat design. They really look great and fits into that price bracket perfectly well. 

These headphones came to me only for review and I had to return the model within a day as I ordered them on behalf of my friend who was looking for some nice deal on headphones and I told him to buy these and got it for 50% discount on Cyber Monday deal from DionWired (@DionWired). At that price these are the best he can get. Happy Listening!

Product Review - Logitech Mini Boombox

Hi Guys,

After I got the Sony NFC Bluetooth speakers, Indiblogger came with the last meet of the year in New Delhi for Dance India Dance Season 4 and I too became a part of it. I didn't win anything in the meet for the first time ever in my meet experience but the after meet blog post contained several prizes and I was able to win Sennheiser HD202 headphones. This post is not about the prize I won but about the prize my wife won for her post on the same topic. The product she got as her first ever win from is Logitech Mini Boombox.
It is a small bluetooth speaker but loud in it's sound output. The panel has touch buttons which are easy to operate. The device connects immediately with your mobile/tablet etc via bluetooth connection.

 The Logitech Boombox is really a bluetooth speaker to go for as it's clear and loud voice really brings room alive with your fav songs.
The device can also be used as a speaker connected via the aux connection. The device has inbuilt rechargeable battery giving out good amount of battery life. I have not charged it since I got it last week with four five hours of play till today.
The device has button to switch on/off the device which helps to save battery. The device too comes with a usb cable to recharge the device.

Overall experience of the device is great as it really is very good at producing sound at higher volumes though the distortion starts as soon as you are on full volume. The device is available at Rs. 3000 - 4500 on and

These are good one if you don't want to spend much and wants a loud sound output for outside barbeque parties too. 

Thanks to  for sending across the product and organizing DID4 Delhi  Meet with Indiblogger.

Product Review - Sony Wireless Speaker SRS-BTV5 with NFC & Bluetooth

Hi Guys,

I really wanted to have a rechargeable bluetooth speaker since the time I realized the use for the same and kept on checking for any deals on the same. I am thankful to Sony Pix twitter handle for making my dream come true to have an awesome bluetooth speaker system with NFC from the house of Sony.
 This is a great addition to my Sony collection and this one is really awesome product.

SRS-BTV5 has built in rechargeable battery giving sound output at 1.2W for around four hours of continuous usage.
 Setting up is really easy and with NFC almost instantly pairs with my HTC One. The sound quality is clear and loud with all the various genre of music. I really loved listening to my fav singers like Kailash Kher, Shreya Ghoshal and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
The best part is that you can even attend your calls without picking up your mobile phone and music plays once your call is over. The overall experience of using this just 130grams of speakers with great sound quality is awesome. More information can be taken from

This will be really useful for my small room in Johannesburg, South Africa rather than carrying my Sony iPOD dock. Thanks a lot to @SonyPix for the #Skyfall contest.

Product Review - Amazon Kindle 3G Keyboard

Hi Guys, 

I bought this amazing Kindle 3G Keyboard from USA via one of my friends there for US$139 way back in Nov 2011. At that time Kindle Fire was yet to be launched and I made this investment to read a lot of books easily. The Kindle device is really lightweight and helps you to carry it easily around in your backpack.

This one has 3G free for life and 4gb internal memory. It can play music using experimental setting that are built into it. The experimental tab has Web Browser, Play MP3 and Text-to-Speech.
 The audio through the speaker openings on both sides of the device is of good quality.

The keyboard feature helps in taking notes and mark the content of the various books. It also helps on experimental browsing. 
 The book content is displayed just like the actual book and the content seems to be easily readable in direct sunlight too.

The first book that I read on it was of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and really enjoyed the same very very much. It also has an built in book reader which is really helpful if you wants to rest your eyes or if you are driving.

I really love my Kindle 3G and it's really a great device for those who loves to read books on the go!

Indiblogger - #CatchTheFlavour - CRANBERRY

#CatchTheFlavour - #Cranberry is my favourite one because of it’s nice sweet taste along with a hint of citrus. It’s healthy as well as nutritious fruit. I really like the dried version of the same and thanks to Breezer for coming out in this amazing flavour.

The dark red colour of the fruit represents a lot of blood that runs in our veins and makes our life worth living. I am really looking forward to making a place in the winning team of Cranberry. Cranberry is the best as all others flavours are general and easily available in soft drinks format also. This is going to be a niche drink in the kitty of Breezer India. Taste it and live a healthy and great life! Even if you don't like the drink (Won't happen though) , do eat cranberries!
