Piero Piero, Samsung, Fibber Mcgee discussed on The Tech Guy

The Tech Guy


We finally retired the old Samsung with its four inch Bethel's. Something a little newer in there. A long time. It has been there through three studios that is an ancient TV. So and I think we put this on an arm. I mean, we got really fancy this is a t CO one of those new man, these are, so inexpensive. Oh, man. I know. Yeah. And so and the battles are tiny. So it looks like you're, you know, bigger people are saying, but this is radio, I know, but I wanna see him. We do a video stream for people who are like to watch their radio, and in the old days, you know, before TV people would sit and stare at the radio when they were listening to fibber McGee, Molly. So those pictures. Yeah. People gathered around staring at the radio like like there's something to see their. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Right. What do you wanna talk about Scott? Oh, I want to tell you about something new. I'm doing okay. I have recently started contributing to a website called tech hive. Oh, I like tech hive a lot. Yeah. Good good. It's a publication of ide- g publishes MacWorld and PC world. Yeah. Online, and the magazines, although as we all know print print is going away, our friend stays now used to run that. Oh, okay. There you go tech hives an awesome techs site. It is. Yeah. And so it turns out that the the main editor their tech hive is a guy used to work with electronic musician many years ago, and so I hooked up with him. And I'm doing reviews of headphones and little portable bluetooth and wifi. Speakers. Perfect. I'm becoming the gives wiz of little audio junkie. Audio products all junkie are they know? And that's the amazing thing us as you were looking there for those of you who are watching on the livestream. I've got one of my stories there at the top of the page. See about the Piero Piero quiet headphones which are intended to help children preserve their hearing. When a great idea we talked earlier about this a couple of weeks ago. Bow Pinkerton tech you're hearing and kids, especially yeah. Yeah. So these things are actually quite good. They have some isolation. They're on ear headphones not wrap around your ear, but sit on your ear headphones, but they do provide some isolation. They have active noise cancelling, which is more important. And they also limit the output or there's. Are said to limit the output of to no more than eighty five db or eighty five decibels, which many organizations claim is the maximum that you want to be exposed to over an eight hour period. Now, I myself think that that eighty five is still too high. But that's just my opinion in any event these things work amazingly. Well, actually did some measurements. If you scroll down that article, you'll find actually some measurements. I took with the active noise cancelling on and off. And one thing I found about these headphones which was so interesting is that the sound quality actually improved that interesting with the active noise. Cancelling on that's important because I think people think louder means sounds better. Right. Exactly. It's it's very analogous to you you walk into a showroom to buy TV and the brighter ones dry your eyes. And you think oh, that's the one. That's the better one. Yeah. But it's not necessarily the same. It's very analogous, isn't it? Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. So I'm I'm having a good time. Finding some interesting products like those or. One. Again, give you a preview something. It hasn't been published yet. I'm doing I did a little bluetooth speaker from a company that I'm bet you've never heard of called Tron smart. No. And I thought I'd seen every bluetooth speaker in the world. This thing is tiny..
