• Solo HD – Beats by Dr. Dre from MONSTER

    Looking at the beautiful, heavy packaging, you think these headphones are going to be heavy. But once on they are comfortable and light – you can even forget they’re there at all.

    The slim Beats Solo HDs ooze sophistication and sexiness. Their ultra-gloss exterior finish, which is also scratch resistant, capture the attention and you’ll be the envy of everyone without a pair. The headphones have soft leather ear cushions and are fully adjustable to fit multiple head sizes and any ear type. The fit does the job of keeping external sound out and stops others from hearing what you’re listening to – even at almost maximum volume.

    Monster is well known for their cables, so this should say it all. The Beats Solo HDs come with two red cables, to tie in with the red branded ‘b’ – one with a ControlTalk remote and microphone for iPod playback control and iPhone handsfree calling. They tri-fold for easy storage in the bundled protective case.

    Sporting titanium-coated drivers for highly accurate music reproduction, the headphones’ sound is clean and crisp with no distortion even at high volumes.

    It was only ironic to play Dr Beat by Gloria Estefan, with all its percussion, maracas and a driving beat. The music, sound and beat went right through my body, giving a pretty happy experience – even with that screeching sound mid-way through the song.

    After having these on for a while, you seem to forget they are even there; they are probably the most comfortable headphones going around.

    I have some Beats in-ear earphones, but after reviewing these I’ll be switching to the full headphones.

    They seem to have a cult following which remind me of Apple products. Beats by Dr Dre seem to be the ‘it’ thing at the moment – I even watched the entire Arsenal football team walking off the bus all wearing a pair.

    Won’t you help me Dr. Beat, Doc Doc Doc Doc Dr Beat!

    Well yes. Any TV tuner is going to benefit from a direct aerial connection. Especially one with dual tuners. But once setup, works a treat.

    Can I charge my 2012 iPad mini with the new iPhone 6 AC charger?

    Yep it's about twice as long, but you have the amps wrong

    The 5W charger puts out 1Amp, the 12W charger is 2.4A (the older 10W Charger

    It is quite beautiful. I think they're keeping in with the theme of last year's "Misunderstood" holiday ad. It might even become a tradition.

    How can I delete achievements/points from Game Center

    Hm, why exactly do you want to delete the points? I thought deleting the game from your device would give you the option to remove it from Game Center?

    Tab browser switching in Safari on iPad (iOS 8).. Does it?

    Well, I guess that answers your rather unnecessary statement of the "place" being "dead"; if the readers of this topic don't have

    We bought an Eyetv net stream and were VERY disappointed!

    You have to have your aerial next to your router for it to work so the net stream

    Hope he is okay for Christmas. Good on him, very brave.

    Santa should be extra-generous this year. I'll put in a good word for him.
