Review: Sony Qlasp Headphones


Here's my first attempt at creating a review, so be patient with me as a get the hang of this. Now before I begin, I'd like to mention that I purchased a set of these Qlasp headphones for my own personal use, and I had not received any monetary incentives to create this review. One last thing, none of the pictures in this post are actual pictures of me, or my headphones, this review was an afterthought. Anyways on to the review...


I purchased the green Sony Qlasp headphones (MDRPQ4G Piiq Series) from my local NCIX store. NCIX is a retail chain that specialized in technology products. Two months ago they listed the Qlasp headphones on sale for $9.99, and since I was already picking up a few other items, I decided to purchase these headphones. Now I already have about 4 pairs of headphones sitting around, but the Qlasp headphones were pretty cool looking. Not only were they a really cool shape of green, but they had the Qlasp feature. The Qlasp feature helps to hold the headphones in place while participating in activities, which I thought would be great for when I go cycling. 


Here is some information from NCIX's website...

  • Unique design clips to ear and keeps the earbuds there, even while exercising
  • Soft earbuds and 9MM drivers combine for a comfortable and snug fit that delivers clear sound to your inner ear
  • 3.9-foot cord length
  • 6 - 23,000 Hz frequency response
So I've been using these headphones for the past 2 months, and I have to say they work really well. They take a bit of getting used to, as they weigh a bit more than conventional headphones, and attaching them takes some getting used too. They come with two sizes of rubber surround to properly fit those who have even the smallest of ears. Once they're in however, they really stay put, and they don't get in your way (I used to have a pair of headphones that wrapped over you're ear and behind your neck, which would always pull out if you moved too quickly). Sound quality with these headphones are pretty good, considering that they are headphones. You're not going to get the deepest bass, out of these, but they do a great job of drowning out the sound of traffic (which is not always a good thing).


All in all, considering the price, comfort, and quality I'd have to give the Sony Qlasp Headphones a solid thumbs up! If you're interested in getting a pair check out NCIX, who usually has them on for $24.99(CDN). Last time I checked the above link, they had them on sale for $7.99(CDN). If you're looking for more colors, then check out Ecost.com where you can find all different colors, for a decent price.

Now what kind of review would this be without pictures...

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
