Cricket Crosswave Mobile Hotspot: First Look

Join me for a first look at Cricket’s newest mobile broadband device: the Crosswave. It’s tiny, and it’s extremely portable. Will it live up to my expectations? We’ll find out once I get a chance to put it through its paces in the coming weeks.

Review on the Skullcandy 50/50 Earphones

So here we are with another pair of quality Skullcandy earphones. I definitely have to pro’s and con’s about these but the pro’s are out weighed by far. These retail for $49.95 on skullcandy.com. The complete construction of the earphones are just fantastic. It has a 1.3 meter braided nylon cord which feels very strong and has a non-grip feel. Its also has a gold plated TRRS connector (audio/control jack) with includes not only audio but mic capabilities as well. You wont typically find gold plated unless the manufacture intentions were to make a better more quality sounding product. It does have a volume up and down control as well as mic input on the opposite side about three quarters of the way up the cord.

Now we get to actual driver portion which one half is made of composite and other have is aluminum. It has a massive 11mm driver which compliments the bass very well. The tips are made of a soft silicone and has the skullcandy embroidered right on them for a very nice touch. The sound over all sounds relatively satisfactory but I can accept that fact that at times it gets a bit distorted and rarely sounds tinnie. Other than that I give these four out of five stars and would recommend these to anyone.

Please leave a comment below if you have these and what you think about them.
