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

Koss Earbud Headphones KEB30K Headset Review

The Koss earbud headphones KEB30K noise isolating earphones overly emphasize midrange, sacrificing decent bass and treble response in the process.  Good for novice listeners though, who don’t really care about such things. The drivers, while excellent at reproducing vocal vowel sounds, the lows, due to the excessively miniature size of these buds, do indeed suffer. What you gain in miniaturization, … Continue reading Koss Earbud Headphones KEB30K Headset Review
