Kitsound Immerse Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones – A Review

So here I am in my 40’s and up until this review had never tried Noise Cancelling Headphones. So as a regular user  of Kitsound equipment I jumped at the opportunity to review the new Kitsound Immerse Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones for my friends at Coolsmartphone.com.

Kitsound kit tends to have quite a distinctive bassy sound which I really personally really like, as well as offering good value for money, and the Immerse headphones continue these themes nicely with their 40mm drivers delivering great sound at a relatively low price of approx £50.

Kitsound Immerse Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones   A Review

The Immerse Heaphones look like a quality product with rotating speakers allowing the headphones to be folded for easy packing and memory foam padding for comfortable wearing.

You have 2 choices for connecting the headphones to your devices, you can either use the provided old school 3.5mm aux cable or connect using bluetooth at up to a range of 10 metres. Of course using bluetooth andor the noise cancelling function requires power, fortunately the Immerse Headphone contains a chargeable battery, providing upto 12 hours listening from a single 3 hour charge.You can also use the on headset controls to accept phone calls which is a nice touch.

In addition to the aforementioned Aux and USB charging cables, in the box you will also find a travel bag and an adapter so that you can use your headphones on airplanes without having to pay silly airline prices

Does Noise Cancelling work?

As mentioned earlier, this was my my first experience of Noise Cancelling technology and I didn’t really know what to expect.

As an initial test I activated the Noise Cancelling function using the switch on the headphones without playing any music. This is a test that I recommend to everyone to to hear the anti-noise, it’s very difficult to put into words how it sounds, other than anti-noise is surprisingly loud without music, but speaking is a great way to judge the level of effect.

I have no benchmark to judge the Noise Cancelling effect of the Immerse Headphones, but I have to say I was very impressed with how well it worked, when playing music with the feature turned on the level of external volume is greatly reduced.

The Kitsound Immerse are a great set of headphones, providing a comfortable experience with a great bassy sound with the Noise Cancelling functionality taking these beauties to the next level.

Kitsound provide my headphones of choice and the Immerse’ have now replaced my Manhattans as my goto headphones.

You can purchase the Kitsound Immerse from Amazon here.

  • Sky TV and Discovery do a last minute deal. Channels to remain.

    Was it a strange advertising campaign to get us all talking about the 13 Discovery channels on Sky? Was it all planned? Well, we’ll never actually know, but what we can say is that, late last night, a deal was reached between Sky and Discovery. The Discovery channels, which include Eurosport, TLC, DMAX, Animal Planet and Discovery HD, will remain on Sky.

    Last we heard, there was quite a bit of mud-slinging between the two networks, but now they seem to have settled the pricing problems. Discovery tell us that…

    Sky TV and Discovery do a last minute deal. Channels to remain.On the other side of the fence, Sky state that they’re also glad to have reached an agreement and they’ve also bagged quite a few more channels in the process… from .. err… PBS America. It’s actually already broadcasting on channel 534, so presumably there’s going umm.. more PBS.

    Great news, we can confirm that Sky will continue to carry the Discovery and Eurosport channels. This means you can still watch channels including: Animal Planet, Discovery HD, Discovery History, Discovery Home & Health, Discovery Science, Discovery Shed, Discovery Turbo, DMAX, Eurosport1, Eurosport2, Investigation Discovery, TLC and Quest.

    We are also delighted to announce a new deal with PBS America that will bring the best of PBS’s factual programming to Sky, covering history, science, current affairs, arts and culture. We are adding over 1,000 hours of programming to our On Demand service from channels like History and National Geographic. This means our customers can enjoy the very best factual programming available.

    More detail on the Sky announcement can be found here, but Sky executives have stated publicly that the deal was the exact same one which was previously offered to Discovery. Doah. Discovery have tried the put this in a good light by crediting the viewers for “helping” with negotiations and have said that the deal was actually different and was “meaningfully better than our former agreement and their proposal”.

  • Vodafone SIM only offers are back

    Vodafone SIM only offers are back

    Look, I don’t need 20GB of data a month. You probably don’t need 20GB of monthly data either. But got £20 for 20GB on a SIM only plan? That’s too good to miss.

    Wait a moment. Let’s work that one out shall we? Yes, you’ve got to get your own phone so you should work that into the equation, but this equals £240 every year. However, if you head over to Quidco first then you might get yourself £50 off that, making it £190 for the 12 month SIM only contract. Break that back down to a per-month figure and you get it for £15.8333333. Hmm… Let’s call it £15.84 just to round things up.
    Vodafone SIM only offers are back

    I’m not 100% sure on the cashback though, as the Quidco page doesn’t list a cashback for a £20 SIM only deal, only a £50 cashback for a £15 SIM only deal and a £65 cashback for SIM only deals of £22 per month. Hopefully there’s a sliding scale or “up to”, we’re not sure.

    Find yourself a decent cheap smartphone or a used one. Maybe carry on using your old one like I tend to do. With a huge 20GB you have enough data to stream Spotify, the iPlayer or YouTube. No need to worry too much about hitting your data limits.

    Learn more on the deals here. There’s other plans on offer too, but this one seems like the best deal at the moment. If you want more, there’s 25GB of data for £25.

  • Google Open Sources Chrome for iOS

    Google today said it has made an open source version of its Chrome browser for iOS available to developers. Google says today’s news is the result of year’s worth of work. “Due to constraints of the iOS platform, all browsers must be built on top of the WebKit rendering engine,” explained Google in a blog post. “For Chromium, this means supporting both WebKit as well as Blink, Chrome’s rendering engine for other platforms. That created some extra complexities which we wanted to avoid placing in the Chromium code base.” Google has pulled apart the code for iOS and carefully refactored it into the open-source repository. Google says developers can take the core code and use it to compile the iOS version of Chromium just as they already do for Android and other platforms. Google hopes developers will use the open source version of Chrome to improve web-based features for Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

    Apple Releases watchOS Beta with Theater Mode, SiriKit

    Released to developers yesterday, the beta version of the latest software for the Apple Watch adds new features such as the ability for theater-goers to keep their devices silent and the devices’ screens dim. The new release also expands the ability of users to use Siri, Apple’s intelligent digital assistant, on their watches.

    The first version of watchOS 3 was released in September with the launch of Apple Watch Series 2. The beta version of watchOS 3.2 introduces new dimming and mute capabilities through Theater Mode. That mode not only makes it easier for users to quickly mute the sound of their Apple Watches to avoid disturbing fellow theater-goers, but also prevents the screens of their devices from automatically waking and brightening when they raise their wrists.

    Apple’s latest software update also adds SiriKit to allow developers to provide more Siri-based capabilities through third-party apps built for the Apple Watch. The addition of SiriKit also makes it possible for watch owners to use the digital assistant to book rides, send messages, make payments and handle other tasks.

    Haptic Notifications in Theater Mode

    The developer documentation for watchOS 3.2 was first published by Apple last week. While the beta software is now available to developers, it’s unclear when the update will be released to the general public.

    With the new Theater Mode, users will be able to “quickly mute the sound on their Apple Watch and avoid waking the screen on wrist raise,” Apple said in its software documentation.

    While the device remains dim and quiet in Theater Mode, users can continue to receive updates via haptic notifications, i.e., vibrating alerts. To check on a notification while the watch is in Theater Mode, users can either tap the screen or press the device’s Digital Crown navigation tool.

    Wal-Mart Opts for Free, Faster Shipping on Necessities

    Wal-Mart is replacing a program that offered free shipping but had an annual fee with one that has a lower free shipping threshold and faster delivery as it hopes to answer Amazon’s powerful Prime membership success.

    The retailer says it will reduce shipping time to two days on 2 million of its most popular items including essentials like diapers and pet food as well hot toys and Electronics. Wal-Mart’s average shipping time has been three to five days. Starting Tuesday morning, it’s also reducing the spending necessary for free shipping to $35 from $50.

    Wal-Mart’s ShippingPass had allowed members to buy more than a million items for free shipping at Walmart.com. Last year, it trimmed its shipping time frame to two days from three, and it cut the annual fee by a dollar to $49. Bentonville, Arkansas-based Wal-Mart said the service worked well, but that it concluded shoppers shouldn’t have to pay a membership fee for free shipping.

    The strategy shift is one of the first big moves by Walmart.com’s CEO Mark Lore, who joined the company when Wal-Mart bought online retailer Jet.com last year. And it’s an illustration of how Wal-Mart is trying to figure out a way to compete with Amazon and its dominant Prime plan.

    Amazon’s membership program costs $99 a year, but includes services like streaming music and video that have created fierce loyalty. Analysts say Amazon Prime members buy more frequently and spend more money. Amazon doesn’t disclose a Prime subscriber total, but it’s estimated to be around 65 million. Wal-Mart wouldn’t say how many ShippingPass subscribers it had, but all will receive a refund of their membership fee.

    Lore declined to comment on Amazon, but said lower prices, a wider assortment of eligible goods and faster shipping alone can build loyalty. Lore promised more moves ahead to spur Wal-Mart’s…

    Dropbox Rolls Out Google Docs Competitor

    Already a major player in enterprise file sharing and hosting, Dropbox is launching a public version of its new Paper service to make a name for itself among collaborative productivity suite providers such as Google Docs and Microsoft’s Office 365.

    Paper, which has been available in beta since last year, is aiming to win converts from the big names in the space with a user interface that the company said makes collaboration between coworkers easier. The cloud-based platform will allow users to manage shared documents by assigning different tasks and deadlines to various collaborators.

    Making Collaboration Easier

    The service also includes a variety of features designed to make collaboration between team members easier, no matter where in the world they’re located. A Paper app is coming to iOS and Android devices to enable users to work on documents even while offline.

    The Web interface, meanwhile, is currently available in 21 languages, an important feature for multi-lingual teams. These new capabilities join other recent additions such as presentation mode, a feature that turns documents into presentation slides and integration with Google Calendar to make it easier for teams to create and share notes.

    Paper has already reached early enterprise adopters such as InVision, Ben & Jerry’s, Shopify, Campaign Monitor, Getaround and Patreon, according to Dropbox. But the company appears to be positioning Paper to steal market share away from Google Docs and Microsoft Office 365.

    New Business Plans

    Going head-to-head with such well-established players will likely be a tall order. To help make Paper more attractive to its enterprise clients, Dropbox is also making its file hosting environment more enterprise-friendly. The latest version of the Web interface, which was released in conjunction with Paper, is more streamlined and potentially easier to navigate.

    Dropbox has also introduced a new feature that allows users to…

    AT&T Throwing 5G Tech at the Wall to See What Sticks

    AT&T today said it plans to test a wide variety of potential 5G technologies throughout the year as it evolves from 4G LTE to next-generation mobile broadband. For example, the company intends to kick off field trials of AirGig later this year. AirGig relies on transporting mmWaves over powerlines. AT&T engineers have invented low-cost plastic antennas, a Radio Distributed Antenna System (RDAS), mmWave surface wave launchers, and inductive power devices. These technologies push broadband signals along or near power lines, not through them, and deliver multi-gigabit wired and wireless broadband. AT&T believes this approach will pay dividends, as it can be deployed on existing power deliver infrastructure with no need to build new towers or bury new cable. The field trials aim to determine how inclement weather might affect signal delivery as well as asses real-world costs. AT&T is also testing small cells throughout San Francisco. AT&T is testing a Centralized RAN (C-RAN) architecture, which pulls the individual basebands normally associated with each cell site and consolidates them in a single location. The small cells themselves can be installed on light posts and other existing infrastructure around the city. AT&T says this approach reduces the amount of gear needed at each small cell site and lets technicians easily update lots of sites at once due to the centralized basebands. The C-RAN tests also rely on mmWave technology. Other technologies on AT&T’s testing roadmap this year include G.fast and Fixed Wireless Internet. G.fast boosts the capacity of existing copper lines to that of fiber, while FWI will target some 400,000 rural areas by the end of the year. The International Telecommunications Union has yet to technically define what 5G will be, but that hasn’t stoped carriers such as AT&T and others from exploring a number of potential 5G technologies.

    Starbucks Has a Reactionary Response to Trump’s Temporary Travel Ban

    Starbucks has issued a somewhat reactionary and illogical response to Trump’s temporary travel and immigration ban policies. It says it will hire 10,000 refugees over the next 5 years in response to Trump. So instead of being served by hardworking Americans or Filipino immigrants, every time you enter a Starbucks in any part of the…
