Klipsch Reference ONE On-Ear Headphones

Recently I purchased an on-ear headset, and it turned out to be so good, I had to blog about it. 

I am 'not' an audiophile, so if you are like me, this review may be helpful.

Most of my listening has been limited to:1) Bose in ear headsets, that I have been in love with for the last few years, and2) My 2011 Mazda 3 stock 6-speaker system (not premium, but I love it as much as my Bose in-earphones).

This is my first ever on/over the ear headset.

The listening experience on these headphones, is way different compared to my Bose or my car system.

First try, the fit is perfect and there is a more than noticeable reduction in noise (I wasn't expecting that). The head-band sits very comfortably.

Initially, I felt most of the tracks I usually listen to (EDM, Dubstep, Electronic) seemed to have too much bass than what I am used to.

After a few mins of listening, I got the hang of it, and realized, it probably has the right amount of bass (to my liking), and I can listen to the music at much lower volume, without sacrificing the bass.

As of day one, these headphones have performed way beyond my expectations. Will update this review if I there's anything to be added later. Using it as a headset for my phone calls, ends up making me talk a lot louder than usual, thanks to the noise cancellation I am not yet used to.

Mediocrity by the Mainstream Media in India

This photo comparing the tweets of the (pro) Congress "Mainstream Media" responses to speeches by Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi, is going viral on facebook, and I wasn't sure if the screenshots of the tweets in those pics were authentic or not.

So I went ahead, searched all of twitter (thanks to google and twitter search) for these tweets, and wasn't surprised at the 'media'crity displayed by the senior journos of NDTV and CNN-IBN

Below are the embedded tweets, bashing Narendra Modi and Lauding Rahul Gandhi by Sagarika Ghose, Barkha Dutt and Pallavi Ghose:        (feel free to retweet and cite these tweets)

Confrimed: Nokia Exits Phone Manufacturing Business, Now Makes Videos Of Concepts

Gone are those days where you could expect phones like Nokia 3310 with which you could play foot ball, and still expect it to work.

Nokia has been pummeled by the iPhones and the Androids in the smart phone market quite some time back. And after losing the remaining market share in the developing countries to Micromax/Karbonn (in India) and to other low end cell phone makers, Nokia fired its engineers and has got down to the business of making some really awesome videos of concepts (and forget about manufacturing good phones).

Here are two of the latest Nokia concepts:

This Fall, the iPod Touch will die

This is the boldest prediction I am making.

This fall, when the next generation iPhone (5 or 4S whatever) is announced, the iPod touch will die.


I am basing my prediction purely based on the "cheaper version of the iPhone" rumors and a change in the back to school offer for Apple products.

The usual back to school offer would include a free $199 worth of iPod touch with any mac purchase. With rumors of a cheaper iPhone to be announced this fall, it'd probably make sense to give away that $199 iPhone instead of iPod touch. This would ensure that the students get sucked into the walled garden (I love the garden even though its walled =) of Apple early on, cutting the growth of any iPhone competitor!

As with most of my iPredictions (which didn't come true), this is purely based on the iRumors I have heard!

Update (September 21, 2011)
Fast Company is thinking on the lines of this post!
