Review – Sennheiser PX210BT Headphones

The Sennheiser PX210BT earphones are a comfortable against-the-ear headset designed to be used wirelessly with any newer Bluetooth compatible device. They also come with a USB cable that can be plugged into an external power source or computer output so that when the built- in rechargeable battery is low or exhausted you can still listen to music as you would with any other set of wired earphones. If you’re going to use them with an iPhone, keep in mind they do not come with a microphone.

Review – 3-in-1 Battery Charger

But it’s not as frustrating as a Rubic’s Cube and although its purpose is simple, it is far more sophisticated than a bucket of Legos.
