I honestly think that the iphone is the best phone on the market. Every Android phone that I've played with feels very cheap. The iphone is designed so nicely and feels great.

I think iOS is the best software by a mile. It's so intuitive and well thought out.

I don't see that happening, or succeeding, but a cool concept as far as product design.

I didn't know ni-cd batteries were still around lol. I thought ni-mh took over for the most part.


And then there are the explosive li-po batteries...

Break in period is required for all good headphones to loosen up the diaphragm (I. Think that's the name for it). Constant volume of whatever music..or white noise, for 100 hours on average.

Simple with Nicads.

-Run tool until power is very low where tool starts to stall during work before charging.
-Allow time for a full and complete recharge.
-Don't leave on charger beyond full charge or over charge.
-Don't store battery in near dead state.

Beware of people who review 300 dollar plus headphones and saying they sound like crap. If they take it out of the box and plug it into their iPod, well no sh!t, it'll sound bad. All good things take time.

I think NiCads are better than NiMH in all ways except for brand new capacity. NiCad is on its way out though because of the Cadmium in it which is slowly being banned worldwide for its toxicity.

Lithium batteries are fun. Literally explosive.

Well, you just need to get rid of the girl drizzling on your face comment, and then it'd be good.
