Sometimes it's easy to forget that the iPhone is capable of producing quality audio. If you're going to spend money on accessories, a headphone upgrade is essential. The stock earbuds are functional, but let's face the facts. The white plastic earbuds that everyone wears don't sound that great. They're not very comfortable to wear for long periods, and the cord gets tangled after two seconds in a jacket pocket. Getting a pair of Z.buds is like getting a whole new iPhone. Let me tell you why.
Amongst the Black Friday mayhem Zagg, makers of the invisibleSHIELD, have announced today what just may be the best set of iPhone earbuds released to date, the Zagg Z.buds. They also just may be the best afforable holiday gift for iPhone owners. Now, in all fairness, we've yet to get our hands on the Z.buds in order to review them (though we will have a review available soon enough).
If you're like me, as soon as you get your iPhone 3G home and unboxed, you're going to want to slap a full body 3G iPhone invisibleSHIELD on it before exposing it to the elements. My current iPhone has been protected by the invisibleSHIELD since a few weeks after I purchased it on release day last year.
Chances are you've seen the Blendtec YouTube video from their "Will It Blend?" series where an iPhone is run through a blender to demonstrate the power of a Blendtec blender. If you enjoy that kind of grandiose product demonstration at the expense, or potential expense, of an iPhone, you're going to get a kick out of a new video from ZAGG Inc which demonstrates the shocking strength of their invisibleSHIELD screen protectors.
If you're not familiar with the invisibleSHIELD, the invisibleSHIELD is a screen protector for the Apple iPhone which is known for its remarkable durability, ease of application, and strength (as demonstrated in the video, below). To top it all off, as the name implies, the protectors are practically invisible once applied. iPhoneFAQ reviewed the invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone and iPod Touch some time ago, and we've made no secret of what fans we are since.
Anyway, back to the matter of the video. Instead of visiting the laboratory, this time the Apple iPhone is headed to Gold's Gym for a workout, check it out below
It's true that this isn't an Apple blog, or a Macbook blog - but hey, we get excited about anything Apple. Throw on top of that the fact that we also tend to get excited about anything invisibleSHIELD (as seen in our in-depth review of the invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone), and here we are.
