Tokidoki x Sol Republic Tracks on Ear Headphones Review

IMG_7471

I may or may not be a tiny bit obsessed with Tokidoki.  I love them and I was beyond ecstatic when I found out that they were releasing a collection of headphones with Sol Republic. I was very lucky to be able to try out a pair of their headphones! Take a look.

The Tokidoki Tracks on Ear Headphones ($199) are super unique, and well made. Simply unboxing them was lots of fun! Everything was beautifully branded, from the tissue paper right down to the limited edition keychain figurine that came with the headphones. The headphones came with three stickers and a carrying pouch.

The headphones are a bit of a DIY project. The ear cups and cable come separately. All you have to do is slide them onto the headband, plug in the cable and voila! Insta-headphones. (This also solves one of my biggest problems with headphones- usually one of the ear phones stop working because of the cable. If that happens, all you have to do is replace the cable!)

The headband is super flexible and very strong. Take a look at those beautiful illustrations!

Now that they’re all set up, here are some specs!

  • Powerful Sound You Can Feel:  Featuring V10 Sound Engines, Tracks HD are fully loaded with deeper bass, higher vocal clarity and crisp vocals so you can feel the full power of your music.

  • Compatibility: 3-button mic + music control is designed specifically for full feature compatibility with recent generations of Apple devices. The audio and mic are likely to work with most devices that have a 3.5mm jack, including but not limited to, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices.

Thoughts

These headphones are incredibly comfortable. The ear cushions are soft but not huge, so it’s perfect for my tiny ears. The sound is clear with a nice deep bass. I found that the sound does leak a little bit from the ear cups. The cable that comes with the headphones is not Android compatible, and didn’t work for my Motorola Razr HD. However, I bought a purple Cleartalk cable, and now it works perfectly. I can pause, skip tracks and answer the phone.

I would recommend these headphones if you are looking for a new pair of daily headphones. They are almost indestructible, comfortable and very stylish. Check out the pair I have, and the other design available!

tiffr: Schedule your Festival

Overwhelmed by all of the choices and film schedules for TIFF?

tiffr is a handy dandy web application that allows you to favourite (by adding a button to your favourites bar) your top films, and then it shows you all of your time options for just the selected films. You can then add your chosen screening to your schedule. Very easy, and way less of a headache then using the website.

Download: Uniqlo Screensaver

How awesome/beautiful/addictive is this screensaver from Uniqlo?
Uniqlo is a clothing company from Japan. Think, American Apparel but better quality.

The screensaver shows videos of life all around Japan. People doing Yoga, parking, the sun rising, Ferris wheels, elephants…it’s amazing and very fun to look at. It also displays the weather, and you can install different segments if you need more videos in rotation!

Download it here.

 

iphone stuff

Not that you care, but I like to fancy myself a techie kind of girl.
I’ve been trying to SSH my iphone to the computer for ages,
and it kept timing out. Last night, I was finally able to SSH themes to my phone, and I’m really happy!
I intend to make a NANA anime theme eventually.

Anyways, my phone looks like this now.

I’m using a theme called Damino, and I am currently in love with it.

I’m trying to get a lockscreen that looks like this because it’s -beautiful- and I love it. I think I’ve found the way to do it at mytriniphone but it’s not working on my phone!

I will get it to work. The reason I like my iphone is not because it’s such a great phone,
but because it can keep me entertained with all of the modifications I can add to it.

Jailbreake, of course.
