My iPhone has become such a handy tool for me for so many reasons. You don’t have to be a blogger to appreciate all that this handy device can do for you. So, when I find accessories that compliment it well I am extremely excited!
We were recently sent two items from iLuv that have been making my life easier (maybe in unexpected ways). If you have been reading for a while then you know that I teach a Sunday School class full of 10th grade girls. This year we have incorporated a media component to the lessons which is cool, but can also be hard if you don’t have the right equipment to make it audible. Because we are an Apple family, I often rely upon my iPhone or iPad to deliver the information to them. The problem is that we have no real classroom and are depending upon partitions in a large gym to keep the sound in. What I found is that I needed some sort of speaker to make it work. I tried a very large speaker we owned which worked well but was very cumbersome. When I found out about the SmashBox Pro I was thrilled!
The SmashBox Pro would be great for many things. It is basically a set of portable speakers that you can take with you literally anywhere. If you are a runner these speakers will even strap to you so that you can listen outloud while you run. If you receive a phone call you can just press the button in the middle to answer so that you don’t have to take your phone from the case (where it is safe and secure). The best part is that even those these speakers are small, they work really well. There is no static and no feedback when I use them. Other small speakers generally provide a certain amount of echo or vibration that can sometimes make your audio inaudible. These do not. Purchase the SmashBox Pro for about $29.
We were also sent the FitActive Earphones. If you are a runner or love to be outdoors these are definitely the earphones for you! Not only do they have an extra piece to secure them (without interfering with glasses), but they make sure not to drown out your surroundings keeping you focused and alert. You can also customize the fit with the 3 different sized tips that are included. There is an in-line remote in order to control volume, answer calls, and control music. If your phone features voice control then you will appreciate the built in mic that comes with the FitActive Earphones as well. Purchase these for about $49.
