Audiosynq Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds with Mic

by on August 29th, 2013

I have been searching for an affordable pair of bluetooth wireless earbuds with mic for about a year and audioshadn’t really found a reasonable pair. OK I admit, I developed a small amazon.com problem; they make it way to easy with pay pal. I did a search on small wireless earbuds with mic and after going through all the one’s that were way out of my price range (anything over $75.00 is just too much for ear buds since I tend to break most) I found these Audiosynq earbuds for just under $29.99.

Maybe my vision is off but I was not expecting them to be as bulky and they sucked the life out of my iPhone battery for my 30 minute walk to the office…

I digress back to wired earbuds (thanks chicbudsSmile) till there are wireless/ bluetooth earbuds that fit my simple requirement…just work.

CHicbud spring The fabulous ladies at Chicbuds sent me an array of smartphone accessories for back to school in three different designs; Camille, Flora, and Leandra. If you haven’t heard of Chicbuds they are a company that has been in business since 2011 that designs reliable fashion audio at a pocket book friendly price.

The three above styles are the newest addition to the Chicbud fall line and the perfect accessories for your back to school outfit! In each design you can get an iPhone 5 case ($24.99), Porta Party Bluetooth Speaker ($49.99), Art Earbuds w/ Mic ($29.99), Ear Party Headphones ($39.99), Physique Armband ($29.99), and the Girl Power Battery Power bank (this may be my new best friends and priced at $39.99). Throughout the next couple weeks I will be testing out all the products in true Nina style to see if they stand the test of durability (after all this is for back to school and last time I checked lockers can be brutal especially if your messy like I was). Currently you can buy these at Target or on the ChicBuds website. Stay tuned for my full review on all these products…will they stand up to the Nina challenge and become Nina certified?! Only time will tellSmile!

Nokia-Lumia-1020I have had my iPhone 4 for just over a year and it’s time to upgrade. I have been holding out for the new iPhone 5 S but I am getting impatient waiting for it to launch. It’s been a while since I have been excited about technology especially smart phones till…be still my heart the Nokia Lumia 1020.
