Five Must-Have Items for Gadget Lovers in 2014

vquiet-4-940x626

I have compiled a list of five items that gadget lovers are going crazy for this year. Can you live without these? Sure. But they really do make daily life much for fun.

The Sony Smartwatch 2 is the #1 gadget on this list. This is for android smartphone users out there. This little device pairs up with your smartphone via Bluetooth and goes on your wrist for easy access. The Sony Smartwatch allows you to initiate, answer and end calls. It also allows you to send text messages, emails and access your apps. You can also receive Facebook and Twitter updates on this little device too. It is water resistant and even comes with a stainless steel band which makes it stylish. Furthermore, it has a rechargeable LiPo battery to give you up to 7 days of uninterrupted use. What, you say your smart phone already does all those things (except rest on your wrist)? Well, the beauty of the Smartwatch 2 is it keeps all of that information at the ready, but you can receive your updates more discreetly and even better, keep your hands free!

The Waterpebble is an interesting little device that I believe people who spend a lot of time in the shower should consider buying. If you find yourself in the shower for more than 20 minutes, that is too much. With the current drought situation in California, reducing water usage is of utmost importance. Not only are long showers a waste of water but are ultimately expensive as they rack up your water bill fairly quickly. If you are looking to reduce your water usage, then get yourself a Waterpebble. The Waterpebble monitors your shower’s water flow and tells you when your time is up and you need to get out. You can set it for however long you want, but bear in mind more time is more water. Not a bad little device to have to have if you are looking for ways to cut costs.

The next item on my list is vQuiet noise cancelling headphones. With so many noise cancelling models flooding the market, what makes Velodynes so special? Well, the first thing is how comfortable they are to wear. The soft ear pads and headband pad coupled with the relative light weight of the vQuiet make them very easy to wear. My ears never start to hurt from wearing these headphones which is not the case with many other brands. The second reason I love the vQuiet is because of the sound quality. The vQuiet headphones deliver the superb bass that Velodyne is known for, making these headphones a definite must have in my book.

Next up on my list of must have is the KeySmart key organizer. Are you one of those people that has too many keys jingling around on your keychain? The KeySmart key organizer is the place for ALL of your keys. This organizer is sort of like a Swiss army knife. You place them all in one little convenient organizer and when you need one of them you just flip them out. The KeySmart organizer will eliminate key jingle and thigh poke. The KeySmart can be enlarged with an expansion pack to hold up to 10 keys for those of you out there that carry a lot of keys.

Last but certainly not least on my list of must have gadgets is the IN1 iPhone case. The IN1 iPhone Case is an 8-in-1 multi-tool phone case. Have you ever noticed that when you need a Philips screwdriver, a pair of scissors or a pen to sign something you never seem to have those items on your person? Now if you are like most smartphone users your smartphone is pretty much always in your pocket or somewhere nearby. This clever little phone case houses a Philips screwdriver, slotted screwdriver, scissors, tweezers, nail filer, toothpick, phone stand and red and blue pen. How’s that for convenience? Now you can have these items on your person at all times.

So there you have it, my list of 5 must-have gadgets in 2014. If you know of any other cool gadgets that you think should be on this list, please comment below and share it with us.

How Noise Cancellation Will Save Your Zen

vquiet_1l_600Enjoy this post by guest blogger and Velodyne employee, Jenny Ly. She’s a big fan of our latest headphone, the vQuiet.

Within our busy lives, sometimes it’s hard to find some peace and quiet. Nowadays, it’s considered a luxury to obtain some “silence.” Here in the Silicon Valley, noise levels are pretty high. Nonetheless, I still like living in a busy area because it keeps me on my feet. I always have something to do. So, how do I obtain some sort of silence and be in my own Zen, while taking the CalTrain to work? Noise canceling headphones, it turns out,  are the solution to my problem. Hands in the air like you just don’t care!

Of course, noise cancellation technology has been around for a while. In the 1950’s, it was used for canceling noise levels in airplane and helicopter cockpits. Imagine the grueling and loud noise levels for the pilots!

Active Noise Cancelling headphones are usually more expensive because it’s harder to produce this sophisticated construction. ANC headphones contain small mics on each side to pick up the ambient noise, which is sent to noise cancellation circuitry. Sound waves are created by the headphone speakers. The internal circuitry produces sound waves that mirror the external noise. Newly added sound waves and external noise essentially cancel each other out by the time it reaches your eardrums.

Passive Noise Cancelling headphones are based on the design of the ear cups to block out noise. The size and shape of the ear cups determines how much noise level is blocked. This type of headphone is more common, not as expensive, and less costly to make. It also works best for middle and high frequencies.

Now, I’m going to put my vQuiet headphones on and play Bruno Mars’s Unorthdox Jukebox album. “Treasure! That is what you are… Honey, you’re my golden star…” Makes me want to get up and do the Charleston listening to this song!
