Bleeding Edge TV 603: Lightning vs. 3.5mm Headphones Challenge

Are Lightning headphones better than the tried and true 3.5mm jack headphone style? In this challenge, I put Lightning Headphones vs the 3.5mm headphone port to see which one sounds better. The challenge took place at YouTube Space LA as part of the YouTube NextUp event that I got to be a part of. What you see in the background is the haunted hotel stage. YouTube NextUp was an amazing experience, and I'll have a video showcasing it shortly. Back to the headphones though, Audeze currently makes the best Lightning headphones that I have found for the iPhone, but you can be sure that more will be coming from a bunch of different manufacturers.

Bleeding Edge TV 602: Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 headphones review

The Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 headphones are impressive. They come in at a relatively inexpensive price when compared to other headphones in this category, and sound fantastic. The new models are foldable, with nice stainless steel accents, and a closed-back over-ear design that does a great job at noise isolation. When ordering, be sure to select between the Android and iOS versions so you get the right ones. I think that these are the best $200 headphones you can buy right now - I explain why in my Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 headphone review. Great job Sennheiser!

Bleeding Edge TV 600: Xbox One S Review

The new Xbox One S is Microsoft's redesigned game console that brings 4K Blu-ray, 4K streaming, HDR gaming, and more to the Xbox One platform.

Microsoft announced the #XboxOneS back at E3 this past June, just three years after the release of the original Xbox One. It’s a revised version of the original Xbox One hardware that features a streamlined form factor. The S stands for Slim, and the Xbox One S is 40% smaller than its predecessor, and that’s even when including the power supply inside the Xbox One S, rather than requiring the large, bulky external power supply that the Xbox One needs in order to function. It also now supports HDR gaming, 4K HDR streaming, 4K HDR Blu-ray, and 4K upscaling of games.

You can pick up the Xbox One S now.

Bleeding Edge TV 597: HP Pavilion X2 review

The HP Pavilion 12 x2 is the most versatile detachable PC that HP has ever made, and the best budget laptop on the market currently. It's a true 2-in-1 laptop, and allows you to separate the display from the keyboard, giving real tablet and laptop functionality. With it you get a full size keyboard, and the ability to pick from 4 different modes for viewing the display - laptop, tent, tablet, and stand.

The HP Pavilion 12 x2 review also shows how the PC includes all the ports you need, from USB-C, USB 2.0, microSD, and even micro HDMI. The dual front-facing Bang & Olufsen speakers are a rare find on a laptop as well.

Be sure to check out the full HP Pavilion x2 review to find out why this is likely the best budget laptop on the market today!

Bleeding Edge TV 596: Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones review

With the removal of the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, Lightning headphones are gonna be big. The Audeze EL-8 Titanium Lightning headphones are an early contender. They are planar magnetic headphones, and include the ability to easily swap between the 3.5mm headphone jack (which the iPhone 7 lacks,) and Lightning. You plug the Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones into the Lightning port on an iOS device, and you get amazing sound thanks to the built in 24-bit DAC and Amp. You can even save two sound profiles directly to the headphones themselves, so that when you switch devices, you get the same sound that you expect.

They do cost $799 though, and that's gonna be pricey for a lot of people, but if you're an audiophile, then the Audeze EL-8 Titanium Lightning headphones may be exactly what you're looking for!

You can pick up the Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones now.

Bleeding Edge TV 592: ecobee3 Smart Thermostat review

The ecobee3 is a smart thermostat that can be controlled by the sound of your voice by way of Siri or Amazon Alexa. With Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa services built-in, you can simply ask one of the digital assistants to set your temperature, and it's done. With Siri, you can do it from anywhere you have an Internet connection, using any iOS device or Apple Watch!

Of course, you can use it the old-fashioned way, but instead of clunky dials and knobs, the #ecobee3 has a modern touch display built in. It can also monitor the temperature in multiple rooms of your home, making sure the rooms that are occupied stay comfortable! Check out the video for my full review - I also show you how to install the ecobee3!
