The Real Deal

Have You Ever Wondered... Is that certain book really good? Does that product really work? So have I. From Indie authors and musicians to local products or nationally advertised, I can't tell you the countless products I've bought as seen on TV only to find out that they don't work at my house, the book was really a bunch of hype, the music was not what I had hoped for or a movie was a yawn. If you want an honest opinion, you will find it here. Although I do lots of book reviews, I also check out lots of other products and let you know if they really live up to their ads or their hype. Stay tuned, and check in often. You never know what I'm going to talk about next.


These Cans Rock

Sennheiser Urbanite XL

Super clear sound, ultralight headphones. An inline remote adjusts volume and allows you to take calls is located on the elliptical cable (shaped like a flat ribbon) which for me means no tangles. The articulated ear pieces make Sennheiser Urbanite XL nice for folding, taking up less space. Also, the soft wrapped earphones surround the ear and are so comfortable, I can wear them all day with no perspiring. Aluminum sliders make them adjustable so you can find the perfect, cozy fit for your head. The fabric covered connecting band is white-thread stitched for a great look, and the soft ear covers are also replaceable; very nice.

Sennheiser Urban XL would make an excellent gift to anyone who enjoys listening to great music the way the artist intended for you to hear it. I love them because they help block out background noise. Listening to my jams on the computer or mp3 player is just pure heaven: no hissing silences, no tinny sounding tunes, just the pleasant bliss of great music. Bass so deep you can swim in it and sound true you will want to get yourself a set. Even when turned low, the sound quality is excellent, just softer.

The Sennheiser Urban XL works nicely in every sound device I have, but if it isn't one of the i-Products, the volume control and mic on the cable may not work. I recommend these for audiophiles everywhere.


More Punch in My Work Out

The wide, tapered, wrap around closure makes Ringside Apex Boxing Gloves easy to get on and off. Along with the wrist support, there's a thumb stay to keep your thumb in the correct position while you punch. The ventilated palm and thumb keep your hands from sweating inside these synthetic competition gloves. 
At 8 oz. they're light enough for sparring, working on timing and accuracy. They will give you power in your punches and a great workout while not tiring you out too quickly.

My hands are small and the S/M gloves fit just right with plenty of room for taping. With seven attractive color combinations, you're sure to find one that fits your personality. Sturdy and well made, Ringside hits the mark.
