Back to School: SoundBot Gadgets Review and Mini Giveaway

I'm a gadget junkie and the more I know and try, the better! For years now I have seen how technology has embedded itself into our lifestyle making things more convenient. To be honest, I didn't even know there was this much out there till I started blogging. Blogging has opened up a whole new world for me and opened my eyes to a lot more than I thought was out there. Some of these items are from SoundBot. They sent me four products to try out and review and here's what I think about them:

My thoughts: Using headphones is basically an everyday thing for me. I take them to work with me, I wear them around the house when I am cleaning, I wear them on my walks and anywhere in between. It's my way of blocking out the world while listening to my favorite tunes. Sometimes I throw them on to block the sound of the kids fighting... I've always found music to be a great way to calm me down when I am feeling stressed or feeling overwhelmed. But having the right headset makes a big difference when you are jamming away.

Compared to the ear buds I have and the SoundBot headset, I'd have to say that SoundBot works best for me. The difference between their headset and the standard buds would have to be the way they are made. The memory frame at the base of the earpiece adds comfort and it doesn't feel like the cord is going to cut through your ear. As for the earpiece itself, it fits perfectly in the ear which makes it extremely comfortable. I've had issues with the standards buds and whenever I used them, I'd end up either getting a severe headache or I'd have shooting pain in ear itself. Especially with the buds that don't have the silicon on the end. Those are the worst!

When it comes to the hands free call button, that right there is perfect for when I am out of the house. I hate talking on the phone sometimes when I am walking... It seems that in some areas where there is heavy traffic, it's hard to hear the person on the other line. Do you know how frustrating that is? It's worse when it just happen to get the important phone call and everything that person is saying is so dim and you end up sounding like a butt for making the person repeat everything they've just said. I honestly enjoy using this headset when I am going for a walk. From listening to music, I can push a button and I'm on the phone with whomever is calling.

It makes things so much easier on you! I've spoken to my husband a few times through the headset and it was like talking to him in the house with the phone. The traffic didn't interfere with our conversation and I could hear everything that was said. It's just strange that a device like this can make hands free calling enjoyable. And the one thing I love about this headset is that once I am done with my phone call, the music plays where it left off.

Details: This SoundBot SB302 offers a secure fit, HD Sound Driver, crystal clear audio, natural bass, built in mic, sweat resistant technology for hands free calling, great for indoor and outdoor use, and has a sports active earphone memory frame headphone with noise isolation and seal silicon ear gels.

My thoughts: The amount of things we charge a day is ridiculous. I mean, we have things charging in the living room, the kitchen and sometimes in the bedroom. Everything now a days needs to be charged in order for it to be used. It does beat having to buy batteries all the time though. It does become a but overwhelming especially when you need something to charge right away, but don't have the space because that outlet is being used...

The great thing about SoundBot's Powerbot charger would have to be the versatility and convenience. This little gadget right here saves you so much space and everything can be charged at once. I can charge the PlayStation controllers, my phone, my tablet and whatever else all at once. Plus all the cables are in one place rather than being all over.

My thoughts: I've never used a portable power bank before the PoweBot. I've seen a couple of my co-workers bring their power bank with them and they've told me that it's convenient. Honestly, I wasn't sure if they'd be as good as my co-workers had said they were. When SoundBot sent me a power bank to review, that gave me the opportunity to try it out and see what made it so special. Before using the power bank, I had to make sure that it was fully charged. It didn't take as long as I thought it would. It was a little over an hour or so and then it was ready to use. 

I tried it out on one of my old phones and surprisingly it charged my phone all the way and there was still some juice in there to charge another device. I can honestly say that this gadget right here is going to be perfect for on the go! My husband could use it more than I though because his battery is always running low. He's a stubborn one though when it comes to trying new things, but I'm sure I'll be able to talk him into carrying this with him.

This handy gadget right here was a product I received for review. Unfortunately I wasn't about to review it since I do not own any apple products, and I don't know very many people that do have them, so that's why I am giving it away. This handy USB cable is perfect for on the go or just in your own home. This cable was never used, so it's still in the package.
