Monster N-Tune Headphones UnBoxing…

I got a set of these just after Christmas (I know a bit behind on this one) for an absolutely outstanding price of £49GBP! At the same time I was looking at a set of Beats by Dre which a supermarket chain were offering at a great price also, however after a little reading I decided that the fashion accessory that are Beats Solos are not for me (admittedly the higher up the range of Beats headphones are generally accepted as top class products the general conscious is that the Solos are more of an accessory than a headphone. I don’t want to get into a debate ion Solos, as I haven’t owned a pair, I have no doubt that they offer up a great sound, I just feel that following a little research there is potentially better sets at less money.

Anyway I see these Monster N-Tunes (Monster also make Beats by Dre) and thought they were at a price you couldn’t turn down! So I didn’t!

I have been using them now for a few months and I am massively impressed. The sound is crisp at all levels, the bass is deep, the mids are defined and the highs are oh so high! They are over ear earphones, but not cups, so they rest on your ear, rather than your ear tucked away in side them. And that is my only negative, I have a pretty big head (enough said) and the ears, they are a decent size too, and when it comes to headphones I like my ear inside the cup. I have a set of Sennheiser HD202 and my ear tucks away nicely in them. If these headphones did that I’d be 100% sold.

As it goes I’m 90% sold, the audio quality is so good I am forced to over look the mild discomfort. I get too that some people prefer this style than a full ear cup, so I suppose it is horses for courses!

For the fashion conscious they aren’t Beats by Dre however they are still a premium headphone, and you will stand out more from the crowd with a set of these as opposed to being just another one in that crowd with a set of Beats!

There are plenty of reviews out there from audiophiles, of which I am not, however as a general consumer these ‘cans’ are great. The sound is excellent, that comes from my experience of about 10 years DJing dance music (including a wee patch in Ibiza) so, I, at the minimum can at least say when something works well for the end consumer!

These work well, sound great, look good in shiny white, and let’s be honest everything looks good in shiny white!

An Open Letter to the Company That Complained About Me – You Know Who You Are!

Yesterday I received an email from a Company whose product I had reviewed on this blog. A favourable review may I add, not only a favourable review but a photo gallery dedicated to the product and even a few videos showcasing the product in action.

So in summary I had uploaded a review, gallery and videos as part of a favourable review of a product I completely recommended. A product I know I have effectively sold numerous other units to friends, family and readers of this blog.

How very unforgivable of me!

“This copy of the Install OS X Mavericks application can’t be verified” FIX

Just a quickie fix here.

If you are experiencing the above error whilst trying to do a fresh install of OS X Mavericks (from a USB stick) there is a good chance all you need to do is change the date that your machine believes it to be.

So for example it is now 17.15 hrs on 15th March 2014.

To fix this error go to the ‘Utilities’ Menu and run ‘Terminal’ (from within the Mavericks’ installer).

Once in terminal enter the date as follows (of course making it the correct current date and time, this simply illustrates the format)…

date 031517152014

Press Enter.

Now close ‘Terminal’ and attempt the fresh install.

Things should now go your way!

Good luck.
