Upgrade the Sound of Your Digital Music Stored on Your Computer:
Improving the sound quality of your listening experience can be an important thing for most people, especially if their using headphones as a means to entertain their ears. Not all notebooks and desktop computers come with a great soundcard, as usually the on-board integrated audio experience can lack luster leaving you wanting more. HiFiMAN has decided it’s time for that to change. Enter the HM-101, a USB Digital/Analog Converter (DAC) that takes the music stored on your notebook or desktop computer and reconverts it into an experience worth listening to. The HM-101 is extremely tiny (seriously, look at how small it is) and yet manages to do an amazing job at making your audio sound huge whether you’re using headphones, or are sending the signal to an amplifer or a set of speakers. One of the best features is that it utilizes USB and requires no battery, quickly making this external soundcard a more than valuable replacement for that pathetic integrated/onboard audio card you’ve been dealing with.
More information continues below:
The majority of computers today have decent on-board sound cards, however they provide a very lean and metallic sound. Perhaps this sound may work for some people but definitely not everyone. For those people who listen to music from their computer or laptop and demand a higher quality sound, replacing the sound card can be a quite an ordeal to replace and even then you may not achieve the sound that you are looking for. The HM-101 Sound Card by HiFiMan is an external USB sound card and a Digital Analog Converter (DAC). A DAC is a device that converts a digital, compressed music file and converts it to an analog signal. The DAC takes the digital output of a compatible audio player and converts the signal into an analog line-level output that can be fed into an amplifier to drive speakers.
The HM-101 is approximately half the size of a standard business card and does not require any batteries or charging. By simply plugging in the HM-101 into a USB drive, you will hear a noticeably cleaner, warmer, and fuller sounding audio. This unit is the perfect solution to making cheaper headphones sound better. If you’re in need of a simple, portable, no-frills audio solution to greatly improve the quality of your digital music- look no further. Read More

Dead mobile device got you down? Well perk up as the Sun is here to quench the thirst of your power-dehydrated mobile device.

Keystone ECO knows this, so to take advantage of the Sun’s hospitality, they’ve developed the SC1500-001 Solar and USB Power PAK Charger.

It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and comes with an assortment of adapters so you can be sure it can cover all your devices’ unique power-plug inserts. It also features an onboard battery check button and LED status light, as well as an integrated USB flip key so you can also charge via USB if the Sun doesn’t feel like showing itself on that day.

If you spend long hours working or playing on your laptop, then you have experienced how hot they can get over time. Unfortunately, laptops are prone to overheating and unlike desktop PCs, a laptop’s hardware components are all in close proximity to each other with close to zero room for air circulation to keep them cool. If your laptop overheats it can do some serious damage to your internal hardware and possibly fail, resulting in the loss of your information. High temperatures in your laptop can lead to the failure of the video card, motherboard, memory modules, and hard drive and will decrease the lifespan. Hot laptops have also been known to be a fire hazard. The Chill Station Cooling Fan from 2Cool is a USB powered cooling fan that was designed to help ventilate and cool your computer while you work and is expandable to accomodate different size notebooks. The fan is protected with a metal mesh and the bottom of the unit has adjustable risers that elevate your notebook to a comfortable, ergonomic working position. Read More
