Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP In-Ear Rock’n Buds Headphones Review

The Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP Earbuds excel in their punchy midrange, but suffer from weak bass as well as treble response. The 9mm dome drivers here, while acceptable at reproducing the musical highs without seeming to retreat from the task, the lows, due to the pointlessly small size of these buds, do indeed suffer. What you gain in miniaturization, you lose in richness of … Continue reading Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP In-Ear Rock’n Buds Headphones Review

iWorld iPhone iPod Wall Charger Review

We purchased several of the   iWorld iPhone iPod Wall Charger   units a couple years back because we do a lot of iPod listening, that is spread across several iPod Nanos and iPod Touches.  So we’ve always got at least one (and sometimes, two) iPods charging.  Back when we possessed just a single iPod wall charger, being stuck with only dead iPods, should the one AC charger fail, was … Continue reading iWorld iPhone iPod Wall Charger Review
