E3 2016: Zelda Breath of the Wild impressions

by Blogger on ‎06-16-2016 08:46 AM - last edited on ‎06-16-2016 09:47 AM by Editor in Chief


At E3 2016, I had a chance to play the first 15 minutes of Nintendo's upcoming adventure game The Legend of Zelda: The Wild Breath, and it was even more epic than I had imagined. A sprawling open world, the most gorgeous graphics I've ever seen for a Wii U, and fascinating new gameplay are only the beginning. This is Zelda like we've never seen before, yet at the same time stays true to this beloved franchise. Here are my early impressions of this 2017 title:

CR Buds 1.jpgThe Cristiano Ronaldo Roc Sport line is Monster's most recent entry into the premium headphone market. Naturally, these are a good looking headphone. Can they perform at a level that would stay true to Ronaldo's brand, or will they fall flat? Take a closer look at the Super Slim wireless in-ear headphone.

Review: Monster iSport Headphones for Athletes

Anyone who makes sports and athletics a part of their life understands that not all headphones are created equal. When you’re running, jumping, hiking, racketing, rowing, or engaging in any other physical activity, your requirements are simple – you want sweat-proof headphones that deliver quality sound and in-ear staying power, which are the same criteria on which Monster’s line of iSport® headphones are based.


Last week, I tested three different models from the iSport line – Strive™, Intensity™, and Victory™. 


Top 5 Workout-Friendly Headphones

Working out and music go together like peanut butter and jelly. Milk and cookies. Wine and cheese. So it goes without saying that a decent set of headphones is integral to a quality workout. But what makes headphones “decent” insofar as working out is concerned? As someone who literally will not workout unless I have music (I’ve been known to get to the gym, change, and then bail when I see I’ve left my headphones at home), I believe “decent” equals comfort, sound quality, and of course, staying power – there is nothing worse that sweating your headphones right out of your ears. With those three main criteria in mind, here are my top five picks:

Monster Mobility for Monster Summer Road Trips

by Blogger on ‎07-30-2012 09:46 PM - last edited on ‎02-19-2013 03:12 PM by Epic Genius

Last week I blogged about a few key technological devices that can help take a rustic camping trip from good to great. This week, since the sun is still shining on the west coast (shocking, I know), I thought it was fitting to highlight a few additional devices for those of us who are planning a summertime road trip sometime in the near future.


Ok first, let’s be honest with each other. Road trips almost always start out as fabulous ideas where everything goes off without a hitch – everyone gets along, and there are no breakdowns (car, emotional, or otherwise). Whether the plan is to head out with a handful of your closest friends or to pack the kidlets up in the family van, the promise of extraordinary memories is always a motivating road trip factor. You know, the kind of memories you want to capture via scrapbook if you ever have time; the kind that will make for magical storytelling in years to come; the kind that spark jealousy in all those who were unfortunate not to have been able to accompany you.

We all love taking our music library with us wherever we go. Whether I’m out for a morning jog or soaking up some sun on the beach, I’m always plugged into my iPod or smartphone enjoying my tunes.  But your portable music player is only a part of the experience. Getting the most out of our music with good sound quality is equally important; which is why having the right headphones is essential.
