Awesome In Ear Headphones

You probably can find a theme in the techie blogs I post.. I like/love music. I prefer to listen to my music with the best quality speakers that I can afford. My home system has a pair of  Royd speakers, my iMac has a pair of Bose Desktop speakers. I was wanting a better set of headphones for my Macbook, or iPhone. The EarPods just weren’t cutting it. I did a lot of research on the net and came across a brand I’ve was not familiar with but they had great reviews… Klipsch…

s3m klipschThey have several models to choose from at various prices…. I was in Best Buy and they had the S3M model on sale for $49.99. I did a search on Amazon and they had the same black headphones for $29.99, and Best Buy price matched it…

I personally thought the sound was great, and they were comfortable, but the one thing I thought was annoying was the tips. If you have oily or waxy ear canal the tips will not stay in very well. At first they will stay in and block out the outside noise well. But they will eventually slide out.

Trying to deal with the tips, I looked for tip replacements. I came across a brand named Comply. They have various of tip sizes, made with different materials. I went with the Active  S-100. You pinch them and slide into the ear canal, then they expand. They will fit perfectly. They are an extra $9.95 at Radio Shack or on Amazon.

The combination of the Comply Tips with the Klipsch S3M In Ear Headphones are awesome. You will not hear any outside noise, you will not hear the kids while you are trying to listen to music. I was cutting the grass with these and it even blocks out a lot of the lawn mower noise. I noticed instruments being used on songs that I didn’t know were used.

I am very impressed with this combination and highly recommend it!

 

 

The Importance of “Recharging Your Batteries”

Lori Ann LaRocco

“Burning the midnight oil”, “Burning the candle at both ends”- what is the key word here? Burn. In this fast paced life where we have to multi-task to the n-th degree we find ourselves under stress to have to “do it all”. Sometimes though, we need to be strong and have the courage to take a step back and breathe. Just be.

Being the best you can be needs that. How can you be at the top of your game if you are burnt out? You’re not. If you are a small business owner, manager or employee- the entire work force suffers. You lack focus, energy. You’re not happy. Leading with a happy heart shows- it’s infectious. So is negativity. You need to make sure you are projecting a positive energy in what you set out to do.

Good leaders know when to say no. Pulling back, taking your time…
