Apple Headphones Volume Control Gripe

Our one BIG complaint about the Apple Headphones Volume Control as it functions on the various generations of the  iPod Touch, is that the UP and DOWN increments that the volume control keys generate when pressed are too big. In version 5.1 of the Apple firmware (the latest version supported on our Touch from 2010), you only get 16 steps to go … Continue reading Apple Headphones Volume Control Gripe

Auvio 3300465 Kids Earbuds Review

Auvio 3300465 kids earbuds are definitely for the novice listener.  Not the audiophile.  In this Auvio® earbuds review, we feel guilty saying that these are high fidelity earphones.  Nowhere close to it. The treble frequencies are muted and distorted, and the bass is weak, with some of the lowest bass notes in my favorite songs missing … Continue reading Auvio 3300465 Kids Earbuds Review
