Spread a Little A/V for Valentine’s Day
Forget the Flowers!
Ahh…Valentine’s Day. That day to savor that special someone in your life and show them how much they mean to you. Guys, its time to spend entirely too much money on flowers that will quickly die and/or chocolate that will be eaten. Ladies, you face that difficult decision of what to get that great guy in your life. Instead of the same old song and dance, here are some great ideas for some AV gifts that your loved one is sure to love for years to come!
Walk down any street, look around at the gym or glance around in line anywhere and you are sure to see one thing; people wearing earbuds or headphones. While those little white ones that came with your phone might be sufficient in a pinch, the audio quality is poor at best and they are in no way comfortable. Add the fact that they almost always fall out of your ears at the most inopportune time and the need for an upgrade is real. You can spend a small fortune on those big name, bass heavy models, but most of us want high quality sound, no matter the type of music we are listening too. In steps the M400 from KEF.
The KEF M400 was built to be the perfect companion to your smart phone or MP3 player. Available in a myriad of attractive colors, they look as good as they sound. Don’t take my word for it, here is a piece from a review by Headfonics:
"Tonality is slightly warm with a soft touch. I am happy to say that the headphones are not totally consumer oriented, but strike a nice balance between being able to enjoy subpar audio recordings and ambitious naturalness. Studio trained ears aren’t necessary to tell that these are a significant upgrade over the Beats Solo 2. The tunes being reproduced by the M400 are lively but never feel excessive or forced. All while holding on to a believable timbre and realistic sound reproduction.”
Or maybe you have a loved one that appreciates impeccable design as well as amazing sound. If so, take a look at the Porsche Designed KEF headphones. Available in a noise-cancelling over ear design or a wireless bluetooth ear bud type, they are the epitome of the convergence of performance and design. They also offer an amazing Bluetooth speaker that can also be used as an audio conferencing device for smaller spaces.
Everyone wants to make sure their loved ones are safe, so what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to get a Door Bird video doorbell and bell and/or a Kevo remote lock. Most burglaries happen during the day when no one is at home. With the Door Bird you can respond to visitors from anywhere in the world. Thanks to the integrated high-end motion sensor you always know what happens in front of your home. If desired it can even set off an alarm without the visitor even having rung the doorbell. Combine it with the Kevo smart lock and fumbling with your keys is now a thing of the past. Whether leaving or coming home it takes only a touch to lock and unlock as well as track who is going in and out. All of this at an amazingly affordable price.
Have a great looking TV but the sound is mediocre at best? Having trouble hearing what people say when watching your favorite shows? As TV’s have gotten thinner, the audio has gotten worse. Forget that cheap sound bar sitting on the local Valu-Mart shelf, those speakers are no better than the TV. Check out the Denon HEOS HomeCinema sound bar and unleash dramatic sound from your favorite shows and movies. The HomeCinema decodes movie and music surround soundtracks and delivers an immersive virtual surround experience. The included wireless subwoofer delivers powerful deep bass to bring the shows to life.
