LG Harman Kardon HBS-900 Tone Infinim Bluetooth Headset
Born from a collaboration between two giants in the gadgetry industry, the LG Harman Kardon Tone Infinim (HBS-900) is a premium Bluetooth headset optimized for the LG G3 smartphone but compatible with most devices on the market.
The Tone Infinim has a “behind-the-neck” format and is deemed to have the longest standby time in the industry (550 hours of standby). The device if powered by a 220mAh battery which is good for 17 hours of phone talk or 14 hours of music/video/game play, is compatible with all Bluetooth devices running Bluetooth 3.0 and features the A2DP (stereo audio transmission), AVRCP (acts as a audio/video remote controller), HFP (car hands free function), HSP (phone headset connectivity) profiles.

ALSO CHECK the AfterShokz Bluez 2 Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones, theJabra Revo and the Cynaps Bluetooth Headphones Cap.

The LG Harman Kardon Tone Infinim (HBS-900) will hit the markets this summer. No pricing information was released yet by Harman Kardon or LG, but, if we consider LG’s HBS-800 model featuring JBL audio ran for $120 US when it was released, we appreciate the Tone Infinim will be north of this price point due to Harman Kardon‘s implication in the project.

Earin - The Invisible Wireless Earbuds
There’s one thing I always hated about modern technology: it comes with a lot of wires! Don’t get me wrong, I am happy I live in the 21st century and I have access to things no one even imagined 40-50 years ago! Wires are a decent price to pay to get access to all this technological marvels! But I still hate them!!!

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wireless charging made my life a bit easier, and I am looking forward for new technological advancements that will allow replacing all the remaining cords and cables around the house.

ALSO CHECK the Sony All-In-One – Headphones, MP3 Player & Loudspeakers Via Walkman WH Series, AfterShokz Bluez 2 Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones and the Phiaton Chord MS 530 Wireless Headphones

The Earin earphones are another step in this direction. The wireless earbuds are small enough to be titled as “Almost Invisible” (check the pics), connect to each other and to the player via Bluetooth and have a battery life of abound 3 hours on a full charge. The Earin earbuds have an incredible low weight of 0.17oz (5 grams) each and come with a charging capsule (weights around 0.88 oz – 25 grams) which doubles their play time. The charging capsule also serves as storage, so your earbuds are safe when not in use, and it was designed as a compact keychain for maximum portability.
The Earin buds are compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile devices, Windows and Apple laptops and tablets, basically any gadgets that works on Bluetooth 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 protocols.

The Earin wireless earbuds are in project stage at Kickstarter and you can secure a pair for an early bird price of $202 US (retail price will be around $253 US).

ClamCase iPad Case With Bluetooth Keyboard
Ipad and all the rest of the tablets out there are very cool and helpful gadgets for anything you can think of, less real, productive work!
And while you may argue about this by saying some work can be done on the iPad (which, by the way, I agree to) the reality is that the lack of a physical keyboard is what mostly holds users to fully use the iPad’s potential for getting things done on it. And this is a sad thing given the plethora of productivity and business oriented apps in the Apps Store.

A while ago we spoke about e cool iPad case which also ads a physical keyboard to your preferred tablet allowing you to use it for more complex stuff than browsing internet, playing games and reading books – The Logitech Solar iPad Keyboard Folio. Today, we’ll take a look at the ClamCase iPad Keyboard Case – a more solid alternative to help you transform your tablet into a productive mean machine!

The Clamcase comes with a full QWERTY keyboard including 14 special function keys like search, copying and pasting, music play which connects to your iPad via Bluetooth. The case features a hard protective outer shell perfect to protect your tablet from accidental scratches and bumps, a 360 degrees hinge to help you use your iPad in the most comfortable position possible and even wakes and sleeps your tablet automatically for you, so you do not have to bother with it.
