Bose QuietComfort 35 (QC35) Acoustic Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones

Bose QuietComfort 35 (QC35) Acoustic Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones
· ·

I am currently using the Bose QuietComfort 15 (QC15), and it is no doubt the best active noise cancellation (ACN) headphones in the market. It is extremely useful especially when you are on a plane.

The Bose QuietComfort 35 (QC35) is the updated model to Bose QC25 and Bose QC25 is the updated model to Bose QC15. What makes Bose QC35 stands out over Bose QC25 is the wireless capability.

Jabra Sport Coach Wireless Earbuds Review

Jabra Sport Coach Wireless Earbuds Review

The Jabra Sport Coach is retailing in Singapore for S$248 and is available in three colors, Blue, Red and Yellow. It is sort of the younger sibling of the Jabra Sport Pulse (S$298) which I reviewed back in May 2015.

Coach vs Pulse
The Jabra Sport Coach is S$50 cheaper because it doesn’t come with the in-ear heart rate monitor of the Jabra Sport Pulse. Surprisingly, the dimensions and weight of both the Coach and Pulse are the same, measuring about 18mm x 21mm x 32mm (H x W x D) and weighing 16g. I guess the weight of the Pulse’s in-ear heart rate monitor is being replaced by the Coach’s TrackFit Motion Sensor. The TrackFit Motion Sensor measures your distance, pace, steps, cadence and calories burned more accurately for cross-training and running.

GoGear is a brand that not many people heard of. A quick Google will lead you to Philips GoGear Wikipedia page which states that Philips GoGear is a series of small flash memory and hard drive-based personal electronic devices from Philips. The line includes digital cameras, digital audio players, and audio recorders.

GoGear is sort of related to Philips because their parent company is Gibson Innovations. It’s other portfolio of brands includes Philips, Philips Fidelio, Trainer, Onkyo and Gibson.

The Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds is retailing in Singapore for S$298. It is a Bluetooth 4.0 wireless in-ear earphones with a built-in in-ear heart rate monitor. According to the specifications, the heart rate monitor has a 99.2% accuracy when compared to a medical electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. I can’t really verify it since I don’t have other heart rate monitor to test with.

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter Review

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter Review
· ·

Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter which retails for S$110 in Singapore can be mistaken for Microsoft’s version of Google Chromecast. In fact, both of them are quite different. Despite their differences, I don’t think their prices should vary that much. So I am not too sure why Microsoft would priced the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter at US$59.95 when the Google Chromecast is only retailing for US$35.

Microsoft Wireless Display will work with Windows devices and Android devices but not iOS devices, whereas Google Chromecast will work with Android devices and iOS devices but not Windows devices.
