Advantages of Bluetooth Headset

As you could see from the huge selection of Bluetooth headsets that're offered in the marketplace, it can be very complicated to choose which one to purchase.
This short manual is supposed to assist you to through this selection procedure so that you obtain the headset that's ideal for you.
The Bluetooth headset is definitely an essential item which has lots of advantages. It is used when ever driving a vehicle it makes working with your phone legitimate; used in the road it doesn't show your cell phone which can cause you to be a target; it spots a range between your cell phone and the head so removing the health issues of cell phone usage; and that could make a style statement.




Earlier Bluetooth headsets seemed very nerdy and weird. Nowadays fortunately they 're much more highly discreet and trendy; some are eye-catching. Their efficiency has also enhanced substantially as has the battery lifetime. The earlier types earpieces for motorola (www.scintillacommunications.com) implemented Bluetooth 1.
2 standard protocols that had major restrictions. The more modern day people benefit from Bluetooth 2. 0 that's much quicker at creating connections, offers much enhanced sound quality and offers prolonged battery lifetime.

In this article we will examine some of the essential things to think about prior to helping to make your purchase. These're headset style, convenience, battery lifetime, sound quality, mono vs. Stereo system, charging and functionality.
Which Bluetooth Headset has Style?
Since it has been previously stated that modern day Bluetooth headsets do not have to seem geeky plus some are absolutely trendy. Many are small so they easily fit in your ear in that way which enables them nearly invisible. People have hearing clips that offer a safer mounting but make sure they are more visible.

Several are available in the range of trendy colors with changeable themes, several have the look of (and truly are) higher technological know-how. Definitely you should select a style that you'd feel relaxed to put on and that will seem excellent on you.
How Weighty?
Earlier Bluetooth headsets were reasonably large and heavy compared to modern day types and often weighted more than twenty two gram that could become very unpleasant if used for very long periods. These days it's possible to purchase those headsets which weight just 8 to 10 grms.

These are much simpler to use and you can certainly overlook you're using one and get really enjoy.

Why Do Earphone Chords Get Tangled in Your Pocket?

The answer “because they just do” may be your first response to this question (indeed, it was mine), but its knot a good one (Yeah, yeah, I know...)

Actually, it has to do with Entropy (the second law of thermodynamics) and things tending toward disorder. In fact, the universe seems to exist in a state of ordered chaos (or chaotic order, whichever way you choose to see it) and your headphones are obeying the order of the Universe by causing chaos whilst in your pocket. Maybe.

Alternatively, Summer Ash of ‘NPR.org’ says that,

“Mathematicians have studied knots forever and developed all sorts of theories and classifications of their variations, but physicists have only recently began to explore what equations govern their formation”.

She goes on to describe an experiment, carried out by Physicists Douglas Smith and Dorain Raymer, which involved spinning a length of string with a motor to see if it was tangled or not, they did this 3,415 times. Why that precise number?

Well, according to Smith, "The scientific answer is that 3,415 was around the point where we had statistically compelling results. The human answer is that 3,415 times was about as much as we could stand."

You wouldn’t expect a guy who appears to have taken the term ‘String Theory’ earpieces for motorola [goarticles.com] literally to have a sense of humour, but there you go. I’ll let Summer explain the rest;

“They concluded that with a minimum length of string (18.124 inches) and sufficient space for the string to shift around in its container, knots formed fairly quickly, often within the first few seconds. Inputting these results into a computer model, they even managed to create a program that could identify the? "Jones polynomial" for each resulting knot, a mathematical property based on parameters such as the number of string crossings”.

Ergo, when you consider the length of your headphone chord and how much space it has to move around in your pocket (especially when you’re out and about, going to/from work, jogging, walking the dog or whatever), it becomes clear that you’re knot going to avoid the odd entanglements (sorry. I’ll stop now). Its just physics. In fact, if it doesn’t happen all the time, you’ve probably beaten odds close to winning a decent amount on the lottery. Think about that.

Anyway, to sum up, today, we’ve now learned together that knotted headphone cables are a natural symptom of business as usual in the Universe. It is indicative of the great wide somewhere winking down at us and reassuring us that it’s all going to be alright and that everything is going exactly according to plan. A way of saying that the days of our lives are as predestined as every grain of sand on every single beach on every single world in every single galaxy...

Or, if you prefer, the Universe is basically a Grant Morrison re-write of a Phillip K. Dick wet dream.

Or, if you prefer:

Headphones get tangled up in your pocket. Why? Because they just do.

Print Your friend's email address Your email address Note: We do not store your email address(es) but your IP address will be logged to prevent abuse of this feature. Please read our Legal Terms & Policies A A A Email They are innovators in industries new and old. They are technologically astute, with ideas to burn. They are highly focused, and getting highly rich. They are the new breed of young people to watch included in Forbes magazine’s “30 Under 30” edition.
Here are a few of our favourites:
Pete Cashmore, 27, Mashable (pictured above)Pete Cashmore founded the popular technology news site Mashable while living at home with his parents in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, when he was 19, and remains its chief executive now that he is all of 27.
These days Mr Cashmore lives the life of the media mogul, dividing his time between Scotland, San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. He calls Mashable “the leading source of news, information and resources for the connected generation.”
There has been speculation Mr Cashmore would sell Mashable for up to $200m but he remains at the helm. @mashable is one of the most-followed Twitter accounts in the world, with more than 3.7million followers.
BusinessWeek has featured his site as one of the world’s most profitable blogs.
Mr Cashmore says his passion for sharing “how web tools and social net- works were transforming human interactions and reshaping cultures” drove him to create Mashable.
He told a Boston radio station: “More communication is better… the more we interact not only do we become more tolerant of new ideas and different ways of thinking, we also create more new ideas, because what are ideas if they’re not collisions between people of different backgrounds.”

Jessica Matthews, 25, Uncharted PlayJessica Matthews (pictured blow) is co-founder of Uncharted Play, a “social enterprise” company she formed with a Harvard classmate that worked out how to create power by kick- ing around a football - they made an “energy-harnessing soccer ball.”
Jessica Matthews with her 'energy-harnessing soccer ball' “If ever there was an innovator, she’s it,” the former President Bill Clinton said. President Barack Obama has actually played football with the ball.
The company created the “soccket” ball with a battery inside so that 30 minutes of play means the ball absorbs kinetic energy to charge the battery enough to then provide several hours of light.
The invention could help millions of people in parts of the world without electricity who depend on kerosene lamps.
Future inventions may include electricity-generating skipping rope, skateboard and American football.
Lucy Baldwin, 28, Goldman SachsThe 28-year old Lucy Baldwin (pictured below) is a managing director at Goldman Sachs in London where she heads up the investment bank’s European retail and consumer equity research team.
Lucy Baldwin, 28, is a managing director at Goldman Sachs Ms Baldwin is known for her knowledge of the near-$300bn global luxury goods industry. She started as a mergers and acquisitions analyst but switched to equity research because she saw a big opportunity.
She told a London conference in 2012 she was impressed by how quickly young analysts in this field were allowed to have contact with executives of the companies they covered. Smart move.
Ms Baldwin is at the forefront of the charge by women into leading jobs in finance and believes companies benefit from such a policy.
As she told The Gateway website: financial companies are not promoting equality for its own sake - it actually helps the bottom line. “If you look at a group of listed companies, those with a diverse workforce perform better.”
LAJ Forysthe, 25, iCrackedAJ Forsythe, 25, started up iCracked to repair - or buy - mobile Apple devices including the iPhone and iPad - and now the firm is hoping to make about $10m in sales this year.
iCracked has a network of engineers (called “iTechs”) in 11 countries who can quickly fix phones and other Apple devices.
Mr Forsythe has said he plans to have an iCracked presence in every city in the world within the next two years.
“Think of our iTechs as personal, elite repair specialists that come to you, wherever you are at the click of a button,” he says.
Amir Taaki, 25, Dark WalletAmir Taaki, 25, is the British-Iranian co-founder of Dark Wallet, a service that wants to be “The Anarchist’s Bitcoin App Of Choice.”
The folks behind Dark Wallet think the community that has evolved around Bitcoin, the digital currency, has become a bit too friendly with the Establishment around the world.
Dark Wallet says it allows Bitcoin users to spend and receive the currency just like other services but that unlike some “wallets” it is designed to preserve the status of Bitcoin as an anonymous, hard-to-trace currency.
“Many prominent Bitcoin developers are actively in collusion with members of law enforcement and seeking approval from government legislators,” says Dark Wallet on its site.
We believe this is not in Bitcoin user’s self interest, and instead serves wealthy business interests that make up the self-titled Bitcoin Foundation...
“We don’t need to cooperate with control freaks. Disobedience is the only way.”

Motorola's low-cost Moto G goes on sale in US

WASHINGTON: Motorola's smartphone aimed at cost-conscious consumers hit the US market ahead of schedule, in time for the key holiday season.

The Moto G was made available on Google-owned Motorola's website at an off-contract price starting at $179.



"We're giving people plenty of mobile goodness to gobble up this holiday season," the company said on its blog as it started sales just ahead of the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

The device is being sold at "one third of the price of current high-end phones, for a smartphone stuffed with plenty of great features," the blog posting said.

The Moto G had been expected in the United States in early 2014, but Motorola said its versions using GSM networks were being sold now.

It is currently on sale in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Britain, Germany, France, and Canada and will be sold in more than 30 countries by early 2014, according to the company.

The new device is a low-cost version of the Moto X released earlier this year in the United States, lacking some features such as a high-density camera and the ability to access the fastest networks.

But the cost is not as low in some countries. In Brazil for example, known for high electronics duties, the lowest price for the Moto G will sell for around $280, or 650 reals. That is still well below the price of an iPhone, which can cost more than $1,000 in Brazil, or premium phones like Samsung's Galaxy S4.

The Moto G features a 4.5 inch (11.5 cm) display and all-day battery, and will include the latest versions of the Google Android operating system.

The handset packs in a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 5-megapixel and 1.3-megapixel cameras front and rear.

Some analysts say the handset is not aimed at buyers of high-end devices like the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S4, but those who might otherwise buy a low-cost smartphone such as those on the Firefox operating system. Post a commentALSO ON TOI

AAO-HNSF clinical practice guideline: Tympanostomy tubes in children

A multidisciplinary clinical practice guideline that helps physicians identify children most likely to benefit from tympanostomy tubes, provide the best care earpieces for motorola (www.ec2onrails.org) before and after surgery, and improve counseling and education for parents was published Monday in the journal Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.



It is the first evidence-based guideline in the United States for tubes, the most common reason for outpatient surgery performed on children in the U.S.
"Ear tubes are the #1 reason children get surgery or anesthesia in the United States. The tympanostomy tube guideline not only helps doctors and parents identify children likely to benefit most from surgery, but importantly identifies those for whom watchful waiting may be a better option," said Richard M.

Rosenfeld, MD, MPH, chair of the guideline panel.
Tympanostomy tubes, which are about 1/20th of an inch wide, are placed in the eardrum to treat persistent middle ear fluid (effusion), frequent ear infections, or ear infections that persist despite antibiotic therapy.
Research shows that 667,000 tympanostomy tube procedures are performed annually on children under the age of 15. By age 3, nearly 1 in 15 children have tubes.
Despite the frequency in the U.S. of tympanostomy tube surgery, until now there have been no evidence-based recommendations in the U.S. to assist doctors in identifying the best surgical candidates and their subsequent care.

The guideline, covering children aged 6 months to 12 years, was created by a panel that included a pediatric and adult otolaryngologist, otologist/neurotologist, anesthesiologist, audiologist, family physician, behavioral pediatrician, pediatrician, speech/language pathologist, advanced nurse practitioner, physician assistant, resident physician, and consumer advocates.

Please read our Legal Terms & Policies A A A Email Brace yourself for a year in which apparently normal people start barking orders into their phones, their watches and their spectacles while they walk along the street.
The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 begins this Tuesday in Las Vegas and the annual gadget fest will give an indication of how some of us might be living in the near future. Some 20,000 new products are set to go on display to the delight of more than 150,000 conference visitors.
A centrepiece of the event will be the Samsung Smart Home, a vision of domestic bliss in which household appliances respond to the voice of the homeowner with a level of obedience unmatched by even the most loyal of family pets.
“Going out!” the forgetful resident can yelp into a Samsung smartphone or Galaxy Gear smart watch on departing through the front door - and the home lighting and all selected appliances will miraculously switch themselves off.
“Goodnight!” the lazy geek might purr at the remote control, turning the television off without having to press the off switch. According to Samsung, that same instruction will ensure that “lights [are] dimmed and gradually turned off” to ensure a minimal workload on the way to bed. A “Home View” feature allows homeowners to view remotely the inside of their properties by using cameras built in to Samsung appliances, such as a television or fridge.

A Smart Home app would be usable across Samsung’s personal devices (such as smart watches, smart phones and tablets) and would use remote computer servers to interact with the company’s wide range of Internet-connected household appliances, including fridges, washing machines, televisions, vacuum cleaners and air conditioning systems.
The idea of the intelligent home has been around for a long time. The notion of a fridge that could communicate on whether any of its contents were past their sell by dates was being discussed 20 years ago.

James Chandler, head of mobile at Mindshare UK, said that the ubiquity of smart phones and the resultant growth in developing apps meant that there was a greater purpose to intelligent white goods because homeowners can connect to them remotely. He cited the Ninja Blocks security system (an idea backed on the Kickstarter crowd funding platform), which uses a sensor to detect movement in the home or garage and sends an alert to the owner’s phone.
“In the past you could have had loads of data being produced by a smart TV or a fridge but nothing would be happening with that data,” he said. “Now I have a smart phone in my pocket I can get a message that I have had a break in or the boiler has broken down and I can make a call instead of waiting until I get home at night to discover what’s gone wrong.”
Samsung has pledged to make its system compatible with household devices produced by other companies - although this has been questioned by observers who note that the Korean giant is notoriously competitive. Consultant Martin Garner of CCS Insight said: “In each category the rival companies are rather fearful of Samsung. The walkie talkie earpiece (www.palm-communications.com) onus is on Samsung to demonstrate that they can make this work.”
Rivals in the field will be exhibiting at CES, notably Archos, which operates a Smart Home tablet powered by Android, and LG which has a HomeChat system linked by SMS text messages. CES 2014: The best gadgets from Las Vegas so far
Aside from the Smart Home, the buzz at this year’s conference is around wearable technology, such as bracelets that monitor your health and measure your fitness. Analysts expect 1.5m wearable devices to be sold in 2014, the year when the wearable computer Google Glass is expected to be launched in the UK. Carrying a video camera in its lightweight glasses-style frame, Google Glass sells to US Google subscribers for $1,500 (£915). Again, users are encouraged to talk to the device. You may become accustomed to passers-by instructing their eyewear with the order: “OK Glass! Google…Take a picture!”

After a year in which the snooping activities of America’s National Security Agency have been exposed, CES exhibitors will need to convince the public that compiling even greater levels of personal data is a good thing.
The conference will see the unveiling of the latest versions of the super high definition 4K television sets being pioneered by LG and Samsung.
But perhaps the most quirky of all the intelligent household devices on show must be the “world’s first” smart toothbrush. Here is a gadget that collects sufficient data to enable you to have dental hygiene competitions with other members of your household, a possible incentive to children.
The Kolibree Toothbrush connects to an app on your smartphone to give details on your brushing time as well as measuring the efficiency and thoroughness of your brushing technique, scoring the user between one and five stars. The app includes a graph in which members of the family can compare the length of their brushing sessions and their ability to remove dental plaque.

Putting HiFi into cochlear implants

Imagine suddenly being able to hear the words and tone of the person across the table from you in a crowded restaurant when once you only heard overwhelming noise. Or speaking on the telephone with confidence because what you hear is now crisp and clear. Longtime cochlear implant users are reporting such dramatic improvements in their hearing, thanks to new image-guided programming methods developed by Vanderbilt University researchers. wireless headset microphones
Using Vanderbilt's patent-pending nonsurgical process, audiologists are able to fine-tune and customize cochlear implant programming, providing improved sound quality and clarity. "Our automated image-guided programming method can dramatically improve a person's hearing with a cochlear implant, even if implantation happened a long time ago. Study subjects have called it life-changing," said Benoit M. Dawant, the Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering and director of the Vanderbilt Initiative in Surgery and Engineering (ViSE). "This is an excellent example of collaborative effort between engineering and medicine that ViSE promotes."
More than 200,000 people worldwide have cochlear implants and the number of newly implanted recipients is increasing dramatically each year. All recipients from the newly implanted to the long-term user could experience better hearing with Vanderbilt's new programming process.
Cochlear implants provide hearing restoration to people with severe-to-profound hearing loss. The devices use a combination of surgically implanted electrodes that stimulate auditory nerve pathways and an external sound processor worn behind the ear to provide hearing sensations. Although cochlear implants are considered standard-of-care treatment for severe-to-profound hearing loss, the quality of hearing is not on par with normal fidelity and a number of recipients may experience only marginal hearing restoration.
Vanderbilt's interdisciplinary research team sought to improve those results by drawing on the work of students, professors and medical professionals from the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering, School of Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center. In addition to Dawant, the team walkie talkie earpiece, ec2onrails.org, included René H. Gifford, audiologist and assistant professor of hearing and speech sciences; Robert F. Labadie, associate professor of otolaryngology and associate professor of biomedical engineering; and Ph.D. student Jack H. Noble, now graduated and a research assistant professor in electrical engineering and computer science.

Cochlear implants use from 12 to 22 electrodes, depending on the device manufacturer. Although the implanted electrodes can be seen on a CT scan, the nerve cells they stimulate are not easily identified due to their locations and microscopic size (on the order of one millionth of a meter). Traditionally, all the electrodes are turned on and programmed to stimulate any surrounding nerve cells. This one-size-fits-all approach can result in less-than-clear hearing when adjacent electrodes stimulate the same region of nerve cells. Complicating the challenge is that each person's anatomical structure varies and thus every implant must be programmed-commonly termed as "mapped"-in a comprehensive, time-consuming process postoperatively.
Vanderbilt's research project included several stages. One was to determine a reliable method of locating spiral ganglion nerve cells (which connect to the auditory nerve) by mapping the corresponding external cochlear anatomy using a statistical shape model and to determine the position of the electrodes with respect to these nerve cells. Achieving this, the next step was to develop a technique that would use the information to generate a customized plan for postoperative cochlear implant programming that could be implemented by individual audiologists in almost any patient.
The new automatic technique uses patients' pre- and postoperative CT scans to determine the location of the implanted electrodes and where overlap is occurring, possibly causing interference in the transmission of signals. The image-guided strategy and software, which Noble developed as a Ph.D. student, then pinpoint which electrodes can be turned off without loss of hearing fidelity-and in fact, improving it. An audiologist uses this programming plan to create a revised custom map for that person's needs. The process is completely noninvasive-no surgery is required-and can be accomplished in one office appointment.
The new programming seeks to improve sound quality and spectral resolution (frequency selectivity). "Spectral resolution is basically your ability to take a complex sound and break it down into its individual components," Gifford said. "It's something we do very well with the normal-hearing ear and it's something that the electric-hearing ear with an implant does poorly."
"If you can improve one's spectral resolution, what that typically translates to is better speech recognition in noise," Gifford said. "That's the holy grail of research. There have been no consistently significant improvements in spectral resolution for implant patients since the introduction of CIS [a speech-coding strategy] in 1991."
Participant Kelly Harris said the reprogramming improved her hearing so much, it was almost as great as getting the implant in the first place. "I love it. When I left the clinic the day René changed the program, I immediately knew I could hear better," Harris said. "Before the reprogram, I never knew which direction sound came from. Just last night, my friend thought my TV was making a noise and I knew that it was coming from the other direction. . . I am also hearing lots more soft sounds and even more music."
Ally Sisler-Dinwiddie, herself an audiologist, has had cochlear implants in both ears since 2006. The study focused on adjusting her right implant, which provided poor results before the study. "The overall sound quality of my right ear used to be somewhat monotone- anytime someone talked, it sounded like they had a mouth full of marshmallows," Sisler-Dinwiddie said. "While the overall volume of my right ear was always balanced with my left ear, it lacked the crispness and clarity that my left ear was always right on target with."
She said it's like the difference between night and day since she participated in the study. "I can tell speech is clearer and a lot more crisp. I can now pick out the intonation in one's voice with my right ear alone," she said. "My confidence has soared since the moment I realized I'm actually able to understand speech in a noisy restaurant without relying on my left ear anymore."
The project continues to enroll new study participants. Currently, they are recruiting adults, although Gifford, who is also director of pediatric audiology and audiology director of the cochlear implant program at Vanderbilt, said that she believes children in particular will benefit from the new programming because it can be mapped with or without responses from the patient.
Cochlear implant recipients can find additional information at vanderbilt.edu/CAOS/research-projects/ .
Harris said she has encouraged several people to try the reprogramming. "They should know that it only takes a short time to do this reprogram and if they are not hearing well with their current processor, they should give it a try," Harris said. "A lot of people don't want their programs messed with. I really understand this feeling-usually I am very cautious about changes, but this one worked out to my advantage."
Gifford said that if patients try the new mapping and don't like the results, they can have their old programs put back on the implant.

The Different Types Of Earpiece Covers

From increased safety while driving to being able to multitask while on the phone, the benefits of using a wireless earpiece with your mobile phone are numerous. But if you feel any discomfort while wearing the earpiece, it can easily deter you from wanting to utilize this type of technology. Luckily, there are a few different kinds of earpiece covers on the market today that can alleviate any discomfort you may have while wearing and using the wireless device, thus creating a pleasant experience when donning your earpiece.

motorola earpiece with microphoneThere are many different designs available when choosing a wireless earpiece. The models you can procure nowadays vary as much as the companies that manufacture them; however, most offer similar specifications. Regarding the actual piece that you insert into your ear, some models come with a cover included and already attached while others are left bare. If the cover your earpiece comes with does not suit you or if one is not included with your purchase, you will most likely be able to find one that fits your needs.

A traditional material used in the manufacturing of earpiece covers is foam. This product is easily recognized by the conventional black color and its ability to stretch over earpieces. This style comes in many different sizes from large headphones to smaller-sized ear buds, usually small enough to fit wireless earpieces. Foam is the choice material for covering headphones that are shared between different people as it is an economical option for businesses. However, the durability of foam is not significant and therefore would probably not suit users who utilize their wireless device for extended periods of time.

A newer material that is gaining in popularity is a gel-like substance that feels rubbery to the touch. Models in this style are more suited to those who wear their earpieces for prolonged periods because of the comfort they are known to provide. Many companies also claim the sound clarity is enhanced by these earpiece covers, as well as their ability to cancel out exterior noise.

For a more custom fit, there are ergonomic earpiece covers offered by a few different manufacturers. Several models have a tapered design that rests down inside of the ear canal that many people find to be a more comfortable option than what is offered with the original earpiece. These covers can actually change the shape of the earpiece itself. The shapes of ear canals vary from person to person and by utilizing a pointed structure, ergonomic covers are a suitable option for many wireless users.

Bone Conduction 101: How it Works, What it is and Does it Hurt?

Music is a huge part of everyday life and it has been for almost as long as Humans have been on this planet. I often point to the discovery of a 40,000-year-old flute dating back to the ice age as evidence for this, but truly, all the evidence you need is all around you, every day. We remember ballads and songs long after the people who first composed them have died and rotted away (a thought which I find curiously comforting) and the music industry, love it or hate it, is always a big business.

frontier communicationsHowever, while the ice age musicians likely lived in a world of stark brutality, frozen, featureless wastelands and harsh, ‘kill or be killed’ inter-cave politics, they never had to contend with road works, delivery lorries, screaming babies or drunken rabble-rousers on their way to a stag night. Lucky buggers.

Today’s listener has to deal with all that and more, which can make listening to your music not only difficult, but also dangerous.

Now, however, modern science has stumbled across a way in which you can still listen to your favourite tunes, even when you’re wearing earplugs (no, I’ve not been sniffing discarded paint cans again). Its called bone conduction technology and no, despite the slightly odd name, it really doesn’t hurt...

According to recent studies, exposure to any noise over 100 decibels wears away a membrane known as the myelin sheath and leaves your inner ear susceptible to problems like tinnitus and temporary deafness, which can be the beginning of even more serious problems. Bone conduction technology has been designed to bypass the most sensitive portions of your ear and reduce the risk of inner-ear damage.

How? Well, in order to understand that, we need to first understand how our ears actually work. (HERE COMES THE SCIENCE-Y BIT) Basically, sound travels though the air, these sound waves are intercepted by several structures in the ear and are eventually translated and transmitted into our brains (if it helps, think of it like the encoding/decoding of digital information, such as that which guides the movements of a wireless mouse).

The sound waves first encounter a piece of cartilage (yes, the same stuff that a shark’s skeleton is made of), which helps to focus the sound, this is called a pinna (but you can call it your outer ear without looking too silly).

After that, the sound waves pass into your middle ear, this is filled with air and also contains both your auditory canal and your eardrum (my little brother burst his when he was little and nearly burst mine crying about it). The eardrum vibrates, passing the sound through to the ossicles, which are three small bones (that are actually pretty vital to your sense of balance, I’m told). These tiny bones transmit the sound to the cochlea, which is a fluid-filled structure that ‘encodes’ the signals for our brain to ‘decode’.

Bone conduction technology vibrates the bones of your skull, sending the sound directly to the cochlea and bypassing the rest of the ear completely. The nerve impulses transmitted to your brain are exactly the same, but the sensitive mechanism of the ear doesn’t have to deal with the hassle of, to quote Anchorman’s Brick Tamland “LOUD NOISES!”

This method appears to be completely safe; in fact, the famously deaf composer Beethoven employed a rudimentary version of this method in order to compose his most famous works. He attached a rod between his piano and his head and, as such, was able to hear the music he was playing.

computer headset voipSo there you go, rather than exposing your delicate ears to louder and louder volumes, just to drown out the background noise, you can instead stick your earpugs in and play your music at the proper volume. Make no bones about it (groan!)

The kenwood earpiece, what two way radios and connectors do they work on?

The best choices are the two-pin connector and also the multi-pin connector. The two pin style features two connector pins along with the multi-pin model features multiple pins. Any distinction in functionality is mostly a subject of customer discretion.

The 2-pin connector’s earpiece features an in-line PTT (push-to-talk) button plus a in-built mic. It also has a surveillance audio tube and comes complete with a clothing clip. This Kenwood radio earpiece is available for just over £20 (excluding shipping and handling fees).

The multi-pin connected earpiece is a different type of connector entirely. However, the earpiece is the same, since it also includes an in-line PTT button, a built-in mic, surveillance tube and clothing clip. The price is a little bit more than the 2-pin version.

Both varieties of Kenwood earpiece could be upgraded by paying extra cash and can include features like a ‘swivel’ earloop, for bigger ease of use and luxury, a noise-reduction feature and a steel clothing clip (replacing the plastic version).

The types of connectors compatible with Kenwood radios are limited compared with other manufacturers, but Kenwood recognize when to specialize in a specific area, as at times less is more.

Kenwood two way radios may only connect via two varieties of connector, but their equipment is among one of the best in the world. A Kenwood 2 way radio customer will not have to pay undue time probing his/her options and researching them before purchase, provided the connector/earpiece falls into one of their two aforementioned categories, then the gear works fine.

EarpieceOnline have been making quality products since 2007 and they have a long history of trust, client reliability and cutting edge gear. For this reason, Kenwood earpieces are popular and frequently sell on the internet..

What are the best ways to improve your hearing?

Recently, when I was at my younger brother’s birthday party, my Dad made a reference to having tinnitus (essentially a low-level ringing in the ears) and I told him that I’d made a joke about tinnitus in a recent article (for those interested, the joke was that it made things sound ‘a bit tinny’ – Not one of my better japes, I admit, but whatever...). He looked at me like I’d just farted in church while I hastily changed the subject.

earphone jack accessory malaysiaSo, if you are suffering from hearing loss or tinnitus, what can you do about it?

The truth is that hearing problems are largely caused by damage to the inner ear. One way this can happen is due to constant bombardment of noises over 110 decibels. According to new information, the noise wears away the myelin sheath, which is a coating that protects the nerve cells of your inner ear.

The good news is, however, that the myelin sheath will, in most cases, repair itself, so all you need to do is TURN THE VOLUME DOWN or simply leave your iPod at home for a few days and you should start seeing improvements.

Sometimes, however, damage to the inner ear is so great that the body simply will not be able to repair itself. In this case, you will need to train yourself to deal with your newfound disability. It is a process that can case serious depression and anxiety if not adequately confronted and dealt with.

The Beaumont Health System gives some useful tips for dealing with hearing loss on their website. According to them, hearing loss can be combated if you follow these three steps:

1. Be an advocate for yourself. Others cannot guess what you need. By hiding a hearing loss you will miss conversation and may respond inappropriately and cause further miscommunication. Tell others if you are having difficulty understanding. If you don't understand what someone has said ask him or her to rephrase the message, not just repeat it. Often this will help improve your understanding.
2. Educate others regarding hearing loss. Many do not understand why you can hear that they are talking but cannot understand what you are saying. They also don't know what they can do to help. Ask others to talk more slowly and clearly and not to obstruct their mouths.
3. Manipulate your environment to your advantage. Hearing clearly when there is background noise is probably the biggest challenge for people with hearing loss. When you can, choose quiet listening environments. In a restaurant, request to be seated in a quiet area away from the door and the kitchen. Partitions and low ceilings may be helpful to reduce noise. Also carpet and upholstery may help to reduce echo, which may help you to understand speech more clearly. Good lighting may also be helpful so that you can see the speaker's face and gestures.

Another common (and fixable) problem is a build up of earwax. Which is simple enough to solve via regular use of a cotton bud. If that doesn’t work, it is always possible to get your ears syringed, which is a thoroughly disgusting (but genuinely effective) method for clearing out one’s lugholes.

Your hearing will also degrade as you age (like most things you hold dear I’m afraid, up to and including: your metabolism, sexual potency, muscle tone, skin, attractiveness and hair colour). Yup. Sucks getting old.

Finally, if you are facing serious hearing problems, try to minimize any future damage. As it says on WikiHow:

“Although you can't reverse the hearing loss you've already suffered, you can take steps to keep it from getting worse. Reduce your exposure to loud, sustained noises[.

Australia hopes to close 32-year dingo baby case

An inquest began hearing new evidence on Friday into the 1980 death of baby Azaria Chamberlain, a case that has haunted Australia for decades and drew international attention after her parents said she had been killed by a dingo, or wild dog.

The coronial inquest into the death in the Australian outback of baby Azaria, the fourth since the infant disappeared,
began in Darwin Magistrates Court in the Northern Territory in response to new information provided by the baby's parents.

headphones lyrics jars of clayThe evidence concerns several dingo attacks on infants and young children since Azaria's death. Her parents expect the court to declare officially that Azaria was killed by a dingo, rather than by her mother Lindy Chamberlain, a lawyer representing parents Lindy and Michael Chamberlain said.

"Looking back now I have to agree that it was a dingo. I think the evidence now is such that it compels one to make that finding," lawyer Stuart Tipple told Australia's ABC radio.

Both Lindy Chamberlain, now known as Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton after she divorced and remarried, and Michael Chamberlain appeared in court.
"It gives me hope that this time Australians will finally be warned and realize that dingoes are dangerous animals," Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton told reporters after the hearing.
"And I also hope that this will give a final finding which closes the inquest into my daughter's death, which so far has been standing open and unfinished," she said.

Opinions in Australia have been divided for more than 30 years over the cause of Azaria's death and the case has been dramatized several times.
The best-known of those was the 1988 Fred Schepisi-directed movie "A Cry in the Dark," which starred Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep as Lindy Chamberlain.
Azaria Chamberlain was just nine weeks old when she disappeared on August 17, 1980, from a camping ground near Ayer's Rock, also known as Uluru, one of the main tourist attractions in Australia's outback.

Lindy Chamberlain said soon after that she saw a dingo leaving the family's tent with the baby in its mouth. Azaria's body has never been found.
The first inquest in 1981 supported the parents' account but, in 1982, a second inquest overthrew that finding and recommended Lindy and Michael Chamberlain stand trial.
Lindy Chamberlain, then pregnant with her fourth child, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. Michael Chamberlain was convicted of being an accessory after the fact and given a suspended sentence.

Three years after that conviction a piece of clothing, identified as having belonged to Azaria, was found in a dingo's den near Ayer's Rock.
A Royal Commission, the highest form of investigation in Australia, overturned the convictions in 1987, leading to Lindy Chamberlain's release. However, in 1995 a third inquest returned an open verdict, leaving many questions unanswered.
Court officials told Reuters it could take several days before a decision in the latest inquest is made public.

The Wii Headset Buyers Guide

For several reasons the hyped Wii Speak was slowly dropped from use and less video games use it.

3.5mm headset with microphoneOn the positive side of this is the release of games using the new voice chat software. All forthcoming games will undoubtedly be making use of this new service as opposed to the obsolete Wii Speak. Because of this Nintendo has permitted the production of a totally new Wii Headset to operate with the new voice chat.
In this article we're going to look into several of the positives and negatives regarding the new voice chat head set.

Slowly Does It: From Small Beginnings:
So far there are only three games that support the new voice chat, but they are all major titles. Two Call of duty titles and Conduit 2 have mounted the offensive on the voice chat front and more publishers should be adding their games to the lineup in the future.

Still, even without the addition of extra titles the voice chat is worth it just for the Call of Duty games.
Why Voice Chat At All?
The three currently available voice chat titles are also well worth using voice chat on too. The ability to be able to communicate with your friends and the other players on your team makes the game far more strategic and enjoyable. If you have ever played first person shooters on PCs or the other consoles you have likely experienced the thrill of cooperating with your teammates to overcome the opponent.

Nintendo Opens Up!
Performance Designed Products is at the helm of the new headset production. Licensed by Nintendo directly, the manufacturer has created the Headbanger. Nintendo supporting third party manufacturers is not very common historically, so this is a good sign that Nintendo is starting to allow a bit of consumer variety in their product's accessories.

Future Compatibility:
The Wii headset released by PDP is called the Headbanger and it has come out in two versions, a black edition with Call of Duty: Black Ops branding, and later, a standard white one. This headset is not backwards compatible with previous Wii Speak titles though it is possible that a software update in the future could change this.

For now, though, the Headbanger is compatible with all currently released titles and will be compatible with all future voice chat enabled titles.
Specifications:
The Headbanger headset is corded with a USB 2.0 cable which is a nice 10 feet (3 metres) long. The cable should be able to extend across most rooms easily with plenty of room to move around. While a wireless version would be nice, the cable is long enough and lightweight enough to be fairly comfortable.
The headset is quite small itself and fits over your ear comfortably.

The functionality of the Headbanger is further enhanced by easily accessible controls on the device. A volume control and mute button are both within easy reach on the side of the unit. Additionally, the Headbanger sports a Nintendo-style blue power light and a red mute light to let you know if it is on or muted, with a glance
The Future:
Depending on the popularity of this Wii headset there may be a bright future for voice chat on the Wii and on future Nintendo consoles. The reality is that even though Nintendo isn't historically a fan of voice chat technology on their devices, some games require it for the full experience.

headsets for phones reviewsSince first person shooters and other multiplayer games are being released on the Wii the need for a good voice chat system is abundantly clear.
