SOUL by Ludacris SL800 Headphones now on sale

By: Array

Here's an interesting looking pair of headphones, which perhaps may be quickly dismissed if you're not looking to spend much due to the $299.95 price tag. First announced back in March, SOUL by Ludacris have just made available their SL300 headphones via Amazon at the aforementioned price point. Clearly these aren't your basic stereo headphones as indicated by the price alone; rather, some big claims are made from the U.S. based company with a 'high definition, fully isolated listening experience' for professionals and audiophiles also seeking unique styling.

By: Array

Razer have debuted a pair of cushy headphones designed for gaming on-the-go. The most obvious feature the Electra headset has is the detachable 3.5mm jack cables on the headset, sure it looks like something you might not use, but if you've ever tripped on your cord, accidentally pulled it out or heck, even transportation, this is a godsend. Razer pushes the headset for gamers who want a headset for their hones as well as for gaming, the mic-enabled cable is made compatible with the iPhone, BlackBerry and HTC phones.

Amazon works on Cloud Drive, wants fisticuffs with iCloud and Google Music

By: Array

The underdog in this fisticuffs battle of online music services [in my opinion] is Amazon and maybe they know that too which is why they were the first to launch their music service before the great Apple and Google, it nabbed them headlines and probably, groupies. This has given Amazon time to gain a customer base and do some work on their service. Amazon have since studied what Google was offering (free upload of 20,000 songs) and also Apple (unlimited storage up to 25,000 songs for $25) and decided that its own pricing scheme needed some lovin'.

 

TweakTown image news/2/0/20123_243_amazon_works_on_cloud_drive_wants_fisticuffs_with_icloud_and_google_music.jpg

 

Anyone who purchases MP3s from Amazon should definitely give Cloud Drive a second look: every MP3 purchase before the cloud streaming service launched can now be stored for free and all limitations on music uploading have been removed from paid members. Upon launch, Cloud Drive offered five Gigabytes of free storage to users and the option to upgrade was there. 20GB for $20, 50GB for $50 and so on up to 1000GB. All new MP3s purchased through Amazon are able to be stored for free without counting against that total, but the allowance didn't apply to previous purchases.
