YIKO Sport In-ear Headphones Noise Isolating Headset Product Review

I love music of all kinds as well as audio books and talk radio, the one thing I don't love is crappy audio. I have used all types of headphones, ear buds and speakers to listen to audio from my phone. My go to pair of head phones is a pair of BOSE noise canceling headphones that cost me a little over $300. I was shocked at how well these headphones sounded and was pleased that they where not some cheap pair like you get with the Iphone. The build and quality is great, they cord looks to be a twisted cable inside of the outer plastic casing. Very durable feeling to them and not a cheep feel like other entry level headphones I have tried.

The sound quality of these blew me away, nice deep bass and not to high on the highs. Very comfortable to wear, had them on for a few hours at work and couldn't even tell they where on. They come in a nice packaging with a nice hard shell case with extra plastic inserts to custom fit them to your ears. I also tried them while running on the treadmill for about 30-40 min and didn't have any issues with them falling off or sliding all over the place.

I received these at a discount price in exchange for my honest opinion and review. I will be buying more of this at full price for my daughter that seems to go through Iphone headphones like crazy, they are well worth the price and would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Purchase here on Amazon, I don't get any kickbacks if you do.

If you are like me you probably have never heard of a NFC tag let alone what they do.  It took me some research to comprehend what exactly they do.  Like in the description above that I copied and pasted from the Amazon information, NFC tags let you automate process on your phone or tablet that you normally do by hand.  Sounds kinds cheesy right, but if you are like me and normally do a hand full of things before I actually lay down and try to fall asleep this is a great little item. 

It will not change your life forever and you will have hours of extra free time but it is just a cool little gadget.  For me I set one of these little tags by my bed and when I tap my phone to it the following happens: Phone goes on silent, system noises goes on silent, my WiFi and other non essential programs are shut off and my Audible and Kindle Apps launch which will let me decide if I want to read a book or listen to a book as I try to fall asleep.

There are numerous things that these can be used for and if you are smarter than me (which is not hard) you can get them to do all sorts of things for you.  I did receive these for free for my honest opinion and review, and I would recommend them if you are someone that likes to tinker around with automation and making things a little easier on yourself.
