Bedphones are very flat, very thin earphones you clip to your ears. They are perfect if you want to sleep and listen to music without headphones falling off, hurting your ears, or without disturbing others in the same room. Imagine a flat metal disk, with standard headphone padding over it and very thin clips attached at the top. The clips are made of bendy wire that can conform to the shape and size of your ear. The bendy clip wire goes behind your ear and the headphone cord goes behind your…

Introduction There are currently 2 models available of this pack, one which has a capacity of 8400 MAH which costs $32.99 and another which boasts a capacity of 14000 MAH which sells for $43.99. Both of these prices were found on Amazon the day this review was written. As I'm a heavy user of electronics, this means I'm also one that goes for the higher capacity batteries. Besides, for $11 more, I get nearly twice the amount of power. SO, of course, that means this review covers the higher…

As a totally blind person good sound is something that is incredibly important to me. Over the past couple of years I have spent a large amount of time and money on different speakers and headphones for my IPod touch 4th gen and I phone. As the title of this review hints, I will be reviewing my newly acquired Bose Soundlink Mini. Lets Get started. My first foray into the world of Bluetooth speakers was about a year ago when I came across the Logitech Mini Boom box. This was a tiny yet very…

The magic bar is an accessory needed to re-charge apple's magic trackpad and wireless keyboard without having the trouble to have always new batteries or the electric recharger with us; it recharges by a normal micro USB cable, full charge takes about 6 hours: this ensures you to have your apple wireless keyboard always 100% charge! The description of the accessory is quite simple: in the box, there is a small single cylinder that is the battery; this package includes just one battery, for one…

IntroductionThe Limeade line of products come in many different sizes to suit your needs. They have a few packs, ranging in size from the $25 5000 MAH battery pack to the $99 18000 MAH battery pack. You can look at all the different models to compare for yourself by searching Amazon for Limeade. This specific review only covers the 18 MAH version. The higher the number, the more it costs, but also the larger the device and more juice you get to power your devices. Description The 18000 MAH…

Hello. Its my first review here, so don't be very annoyed if I break something hard. Anyway. I used to have apple wireless keyboard, wich is a great product, but as everything, it has its minuses. I carry mine most of the time in my laptop case. What happened, was that it used to turn itself on in there. Those who own this keyboard know, how easyli the button in one end presses and turns the keyboard on. So I found myself in the other end of the house, again with turned on keyboard and no…

Aftershokz use Bone Conduction technology to deliver sound through your cheek bones and therefore leaves your ears uncovered for hearing traffic noises, transit announcements etc; sounds great for ensuring safety for blind and visually impaired navigating about outdoors I thought - I was also thinking that listening to audio books, podcasts or just using a screen reader could be possible whilst still being "In the room" unlike when using regular stereo headphones so could be useful for when…

I have purchased this gadget a few weeks ago and I am very satisfied. The product price is fantastic, it cost two U.S. dollars including shipping. The seller ships the products worldwide for free. The strap also fits with Otterbox deffender case. Unfortunately, the strap is made only for 30 Pin connector I-devices. The description from the website: Color: Black Material: Plastic + silicone + aluminium alloy Type: Apple 30Pin Gadgets Compatible Models: iPad / iPhone / iPad Features: The sturdy…

The mobile market has exploded within the past few years and has really changed the way blind people work and play. With a big enfises on iOS devices like the iPhone and the iPad, many people are wondering if dedicated devices for the blind are even relevant anymore. When I say dedicated devices I mean anything from GPS devices to note taking devices with braille displays attached. In this article I want to give you my opinion on why I still choose to use a dedicated device. Let me clarify…

There seems no section on applevis for external batteries and the item is both, though the prime purpose is as a battery; the case is only to make both the Iphone and battery one compact unit. Warning: this message is longer than an east-bound grain train at harvest! The power pack I will be discussing for the IPhone 4S is also available for the IPhone 5. The model is I believe rather steeply priced at present at $71 Canadian. The unit I purchased is: seidio bd4-pbyiph4-gr innocell Decent…

This review is of the nuu minikey Bluetooth keyboard designed for the iPhone5. This keyboard is a model designed specifically for the iPhone5 because of its redesigned appearance, there is a model for iPhones pre iPhone5, and the two are very similar but do have differences which I will discuss in this review. The first thing to say about the iPhone5 model is that it is very similar in layout to the model for older phones, however some punctuation symbols have moved in particular one thing I…

This accessory is a small remote control which can be used to transform wired headsets in wireless ones. It doesn't of course eliminate cables. But this small rectangular object has a 3.5 mm jack on its side, so, traditional headphones or headsets can be attached there, even older headphones with no microphone in them, and you have a complete set including: - a multi-use rectangular key which works as on/off/pairing, siri activation, answer/reject/redial call. This button has a small phone…

Hi everyone, I thought I’d share my opinion about the “Veho 360 degrees M4 Bluetooth speaker” that I got for my iPhone a couple of weeks ago. Description The speaker is circular in shape, I think this is why it’s called “360 degrees”, and is very small. I’d say height wise it’s about the same size as a coke can, if not then a bit smaller. On the top are some controls in a circle surrounded by a button in the middle. Towards the base of the speaker is some raised writing which I think just says…

The Braille Sense OnHand is a note taker with an 18 cell braille display which has a large set of features outside of being used as a braille terminal with Apple products. It's very lightweight to cary around both as a device, and you'll also find your wallet is much more lightweight after purchasing this product at $3995. You can read more about all of the features in the onHand here Now for the iDevice portion of this…

I recently just purchased the JBL Flip Bluetooth speaker, and am very surprised by it's size, and it's sound. The JBL Flip is a portable Bluetooth speaker with outstanding sound for it's size. I will first try and describe the speaker, and how it looks. First off, the speaker is more cylindrical than anything else, with the back pinched, to make room for the base that lets you set the speaker horizontally. This thing is probably as big as an energy drink can. Probably a little wider, but not…

This case is specifically for the iPhone 5. It doubles as a case and as an external battery pack. On the plus side, I purchased the case for $49 on Amazon, and works as advertized. That's $30 cheaper than the Mophie JucePack air with the same MAH rating of 2000 Mah, and it looks very similar. With the iPhone 5 of course, you have the headphone jack at the bottom along with the lightning connector. You can pull the bottom off the case so that you can have access to the headphone jack as you…

I find that using a Bluetooth keyboard allows me to work much faster with my iOS devices, both when typing and when controlling Voiceover with QuickNav. When I purchased my third generation iPad, I looked at and tested several keyboard cases, by far, I found the ZAGGfolio keyboard case (made by SAGG) to be the best one! Externally, the case is covered in either carbon fiber or leather (which is slightly more expensive), and comes in a variety of colors. The texture is pleasing to touch and…
