A great mid-priced set of earphones. These are earbuds worn in the ear. From the manufacturer: Don't give away your smoking jacket just because you own a pair of Skullcandy Full Metal Jacket ear buds. The FMJ's metal housing and well-endowed speakers pump out a furious barrage of armor-piercing decibels that not even Wonder Woman's magical gold wristbands could withstand.

First of all, there's not an option in the review ratings for "Results", which is where this contraption earns a 10. However, the price is rather high and it doesn't generate the magic bullet cup that all peoples will instantly agree to have been the best they've ever tasted. What it DOES do is turn your Chemex "super clean coffee" device into a "pour-over clean meets french-press grit" coffee maker. What it is: It's essentially a stainless steel, conical filter with a bunch of rather...
Let's get the obvious out of the way: yes, it's $250. If this is your first interaction with "the Breville tax" well, get used to it. They make nice looking stuff that generally works very well, but fetches more than a few shiny pennies. If the cost turns you away, there are cheaper options out there - but not quite so fancy or perhaps versatile. Let's dig in. The OTTM is a fully-loaded, fully-automated tea making machine. You put cold water in the pot, loose leaves (or bags) in the...
Spoiler: I love this thing. It's produced some of the best coffee I've had in a LONG, long time - in just a month of use. It's also presented some challenges, but none too big. The Chemex system is more than just a brewer - it's as much about the filters as it is the pot. However, what I'm finding is that the Chemex brewer is actually about more than just the Chemex system. This isn't a review about filters, but suffice it to say that with the Chemex filters, you'll get the cleanest cup...
A few quick design notes - there's 1/2lb hopper up top, which rotates to make coarseness adjustments. At the very coarsest setting, it can vibrate out of the "grinding" mode and into the "removing the hopper" mode, which makes for a fun mess to clean. However, this coarsest setting is too coarse to be useful anyway. There's a timer on the side that goes up to 30 seconds, which is very loose/easy to turn. It's very easy to lose that elusive "perfect" timer setting. I placed a sticker on...

For a tea drinker, loose tea significantly improves the experience over bagged tea: manufacturers ship lower quality, poorly processed tea leaves and stems in bags of measured quantity; whereas loose tea provides higher quality product and the ability to precisely measure how much tea versus how much water, allowing more flavor without forcing more astringent tannin extraction. The Japanese Tetsubin accepts hot water and itself heats up; by filling first with hot water and then...
I recently realized I hadn't bought new jeans in probably 8 years or so (and I'm 28)! I always by used jeans and have 1 pair at a time for the last couple years. Those days are gone since I went to Dave's in Manhattan. They have Levis for $30-$40 which is $15-$20 off normal price. I thought I'd be going for the 514's since I'm 6'1" and not "skinny" skinny. I tried them on and after a hot summer with my pant legs always rolled up because of the swampy weather in Brooklyn, the 514's just...
NOTE: dont disregard this review if you only have a single baby...they make those too! All, As some of you know...I'm a Twins Parent. Which means if I can't find time to do the things I love juggling the twins...it doesn't get done! As such, when my wife brought home the In Step Twins jogging stroller...I was in heaven. My biggest fear was whether or not it would be too heavy to run with. Well...just took it for a 4+ mile run and here is the review! Price: At $200+ a...
I bought this watch off of an Ebay vendor about a month ago. It took about a week to get it and I have been wearing everyday since. I am thoroughly satisfied so far but read below for more info. Price: This was $54 dollars including shipping from Singapore. There are cheaper ones listed but you have to pay shipping. Make sure you do the math to get the best price. Quality: After 3 weeks it has performed very well. It does seem to gain about a minute a week but this is not a...
*I'm not sure what "Fit & Finish" means, so I left it blank. I decided to get myself a nicer pen, as I don't like disposables too much. My local stationer suggested to be this pen, which for the price ($13.29 to be exact), is a good deal. Price: $13.29. 'Nough said. Packaging: Just a small, simple box. No complaints here. Quality: The pen has a nice heft to it. The black finish is nice, and the gold-metal trim is a nice touch. There's a rubber grip, which I guess is nice. When I...
Got it as my first fountain pen. The weight seems appropriate for something this small. The packaging was just a cheap gold color box it was shoved in, so nothing fancy. I am using Waterman black ink with this pen. The shell is made from a thick casing of steel. The finish seems nice and should last. I believe the caps are plastic. When filling it, I noticed that the reservoir seems a bit on the cheaper side. It doesn't display how much ink is left, so I guess I will just get a surprise one...
This stuff and the rest of obenauf's lineup were created to protect the boots of firefighters. I had some leather items I wanted to keep in good shape and decided to give obenauf's leather oil a try. It works great and is readily absorbed into the leather in a very short time. It may not be the cheapest stuff out there ($15.95 for 16 oz.), but a little goes a long way and the fantastic results are worth it. Another nice thing about it is it does not contain neatsfoot or mink oil, which some...
I got myself one of these as a christmas present to myself and I am glad I did. The purchase was a result of a relatively new-found interest in wrist watches. Appearance This watch is from Breitling's AeroMarine line and has a quite rugged overall appearance. As is typical for this brand there is plenty of detail and has a very unique presence on the wrist. The full polished finish gives this model a definite air of refinement that balances the rugged lines and contours of the case and...
