If you know someone who can't get enough silly cat videos on YouTube, needs to know the weather constantly, or can't pry themselves away from sports scores on ESPN, then the Chumby looks like the perfect gadget gift. It's like a second monitor just for your favorite widgets. You could also use this to constantly watch your favorite deal of the day sites like steepandcheap.com or woot.com. Be sure to check out the list of widgets to get a better understanding of how might want one of these.

I'm in love with this hunk of plastic. There are times when you find a tool or a piece of gear with tons of flaws yet still performs wonderfully. This speaker is a perfect example. I think this is because the speaker looks so simple that I can't believe I've found as many things to improve. I also don't think I've seen any of these speakers that I've really enjoyed listening too in the past. The bottom line is that I love a full and powerful sound when listening to music, just as my friends how many times they have to turn down music when they come over to my house. This speaker delivers a ton of sound and it very simple and elegant. I'd recommend this to anyone. My suggested improvements:
- The mesh front isn't secured very well on the corners
- The docking tray should come with more adapters to fit the specific iPods
- The docking tray is also difficult to open and close
- The volume buttons on the side need to be more sensitive
- The great sound
- The simplistic design
Why do you wear headphones? Where do you wear headphones? If you wear your headphones to get clean accurate sound in environments where you want to focus without interruptions, these are for you. These headphones produce a clean clear sound. The fit is perfect, and like the name suggest, they feel very custom. The snug fit produces an almost noise canceling effect blocking out all surrounding or ambient noise. I'd say these headphones would be perfect for the audiophile on the commute, at the gym or for use at your desk at work. Klipsch is known for powerful, accurate and clean audio. These headphones are a good example and representation of the quality and precision they are know for. These headphones come with a really nice case that can double as an iPod carrying case, a few options for ear jells to insure your custom fit, and an extension for the two pronged 1/8th inch headphone jacks seen on airplanes. Summary These Custom-2 headphones produce a bright, clean and obscured sound quality consistent with some of the other high end headphones on the market. They are stylish and fit well. Where to buy www.klipsch.com Price: $199 Product Suggestions I'd prefer to hear a little more bass boost, have a volume control on the cord, and give the user some options for ear gels that let a little more ambient sound in....Read more...
