My Audio Setup & Gear:
this is under 50 at Target hashtag not a net now everything featured in this video was purchased nothing is sponsored but if you guys do want to pick something up feature in this video with a link down below it does support the channel which is amazing so kicking up the list is compact but powerful battery bank from anchor the Power Core 13,000 which just sounds badass you do have to buy the USBC to lightning cable separately and that's one more argument of why Apple should follow suit with the iPad pro and bring us PC to the iPhone but again it's a different argument for a different day regardless though the battery bank is awesome you should absolutely pick one up next from there number three you guys know I love me some thick but now it's time to look at some slim this is a one terabyte external USB 3 drive from Seagate personally I'm a huge fan of the color which I think looks amazing and well a specific model is one terabyte if you need all the terabytes that goes all the way up to five terabytes which is crazy clearly with increased storage comes increased price but I think one terabyte overall is a pretty good number for most people out there as USB 3 and more importantly it's not going to break the bank next up is this awesome guy behind me a flame LED light nobody make a fire choke I'm kidding you can absolutely throw a fire moji down below there's not really much to explain about if you like fireplaces and you like LED lights this is a sammich of awesome and maybe if Evans knew about this he might still be in Missouri I'm kidding I love evidence maybe not as much as I love this light but it's close and if you guys want some ambience a little bit of that holiday mood grab one for yourself as well next from there the fire does not stop we got a fire LED and this is a fire tablet the Amazon fire seven I'm gonna be real with you it's not like a blazing fast tablet but for under fifty bucks it is a damn good option there's no way you're gonna be hating the business laying down tracks on this but it's a great entry level tablet whether you're just reading watching video whether it's Netflix or even better if you're in the Amazon ecosystem it's going to be awesome and the more part is that it's under 50 bucks so if it's for a kid you're not gonna have a heart attack if he loses or drops this from there if you like lights and you like speakers I'm gonna blow your mind because I got a two and one this is a Tsang lid LED color changing speaker bulb cool you guys know I love me some Phillips hue but I get it it's a big investment you gotta buy into the ecosystem you got to buy the starter kit whereas with this you just buy the light bulb and it just works smack on top the fact that it also plays music and it's a pretty outstanding deal especially the fact that it's on sale right now now in terms of audio quality is definitely not gonna blow your face off like snazzy cue isn't running to these to listen to his next hipster album but they sound good more than anything it's kind of this cool home tech element like imagine flip it on the lights and the music and you're like yeah those are my light bulbs playing music are you kidding me also they change color which is probably the reason why you're looking to pick these up from there I am a huge fan of Logitech mice but I get it they can be on the pricier side especially the higher end stuff but that my friends is where this comes in the Logitech MX anywhere 2 s that is a mouthful but it's not a mouse it's definitely a little on the smaller side if you're used to one of the bigger thick boys like for me I would definitely prefer this to travel but if you're upgrading for something like the Magic Mouse or one of these disasters it's going to be night and day better next from there this might be one of my favorite gadgets like ever and honestly unless you're on the wireless charging side of camp the Native union night cable is hands-down the best bedside option period the magic sauce is right here in the weighted ball you can move it you can manipulate it so if you ever woke up in the morning unplug your phone and it feels like someone just yanked the cable from you that is going to stop that from ever happening again this next gadget is the aperture Ameren pocket LED light which is exactly what it sounds like a portable LED light that fits in your pocket whether you're a filmmaker or just someone who likes to mess with making video this should be an essential piece of tech in your kids aperture makes some of the best lights out there not only they are affordable but they're actually high quality and that is this but in a smaller footprint the only potential downside I would say is the fact that it's daylight balanced can't adjust the color temperature but an easy fix is just to go old-school slap a young gel on it you can make it cool you can make it warm you can make a colorful and there are so many situations when you need more light and with this it comes in super clutch now with lighting maybe you need something bigger brighter maybe you really need to have that adjustable color temperature within the light the soup on L 122 T is a great alternative in terms of actual like light quality the color I think the aperture is the better version but again this is bigger it's more flexible so with this if you add maybe imbalance or some diffusion you can definitely do some really cool things with this lights one thing to keep in mind with this light is you do have to buy the battery separately you're more than likely gonna need some sort of clamp or stand but the good news is even with all that you can do that under 50 bucks now most TVs these days especially the 4k option is usually coming with some sort of Netflix or streaming option but the problem is the interface is usually trashed him naturally you can a trash with fire the fire TV stick for kick there's not really much that needs to be said about this you plug the stick in and now your dumb TV the smart I will say though it probably only recommend this option if you're like deep in the Amazon ecosystem so if you take advantage of Prime you can watch that library then go for otherwise I would say look elsewhere speaking of looking elsewhere what is up Roku Express now personally I feel like this is the best neutral option like if you're not heavily invested into an ecosystem this is what you should be looking at to me it's kind of like the jack of all trades master of none tour doesn't really excel or like dominate in one specific area but the amount of features you get packed inside is bananas but it does have going for it is the interface simple it's easy to use it could definitely be a little cluttered at times but overall for 30 bucks you can't really go wrong from their ultimate sometimes I get a little too excited with lamps and lights but this thing is cool as balls literally two of them this is the hang balance light which is one of the coolest and most unique lights I've ever seen for me what I appreciate about this is it looks like it could be in some bougie-ass store and sell for north of a hundred or two hundred dollars but it it's under 50 which is nuts next in there is the who to USBC adapter and I've tried multiple dongles and docks and adapters before whatever reason I always come back to this one build quality is on point and yet I do see the point and the merit of those docks that plug into the MacBook directly but there's always been this part of me that kind of just is scared that I'm gonna bump into it and snap a port off whereas with this I feel much safer for the most part with MacBooks I'm pretty all about that USB sea life but the one thing I wish they didn't take off was the SD card slot like we are not ready for that yet beyond that now that the iPad pro is also USB see this is a great option for that and yeah there are a ton of options out there ace evil of adapters but for me this is my go-to option from there speaking of us pc adapters if you're rocking an imac whether it's the pro or the standard model this dock from suteki is hands-down the way to go with this you get three USB 3.0 ports one USB C an SD card slot and yeah I realize it's not the biggest deal in the world but sometimes trying to reach and find that SD card slot in the back of the iMac is annoying on top of that aesthetically this thing looks awesome to the point where it almost looks like it blends in with the iMac so yeah if you own an iMac you almost need to pick this up next one that I got you covered with some really fantastic headphone options and kicking off the mini list within this giant list is the crown series headphones from plugged for me what stands out is the design these things are super clean they're minimal and I really dig this matte white finish here but they also come in black and navy which are equally as clean now the only potential downside here is seen that most smartphones these days don't have a headphone jack if you don't want to deal with a dongle or an adapter you may want to look elsewhere but if you're that Galaxy S 9 owner who is just ready to rub it in our faces you probably want to check these out these are technically on your headphones but if like there's some sort of hybrid in-between on air and over ear so they're bigger you have more covered which is nice and more importantly these things sound really good for the money like to the point where I was actually surprised now from there if you dig the wired headphones but want just like a slight step up in terms of audio quality the audio technica AVH ace the 400s are a great alternative these are actually over your headphones so the bigger they're cushy are they're gonna wrap around your ears and bless your face with beautiful sounding music unless you are an Iggy Azalea fan sorry yogi overall in terms of sound quality I would say these are more neutral compared to the Crown's that we looked at like if you want a better bass heavy option check out the Crown's but in terms of like balance and overall comfort you could wear these things all day long from there if wired headphones are your thing because yeah I get it wires they get in the way these t2s from blue do are a steal these things feature bluetooth 4.1 they have up to 40 freakin hours of playback they're bendable foldable so they're great option travel with and again more importantly these things sound good especially when you factor in that they are just about 30 bucks the only thing I would say to look out for is build quality over time like they don't feel cheap but they're definitely plastic so don't be reckless with them take care of them but again if you do have to replace these it's not going to break the bank now if you're grabbing any of those headphones you're probably thinking to yourself you know what would go good with those a headphone stand and I totally agree with you the brain waves trust headphone hanger is like this super cool desk hack that allows you to hang your headphones up to two and keep everything super clean in terms of build quality it's made out of aluminum so it's really solid and I will say in terms of just a little bit of a fair warning this thing like really sticks on to the under portion of your desk so make sure you know where you want to put it especially if you're gonna put it like on a painted desk because it might actually pull some of that paint off it is on there that well but overall this is a must-have item if you own headphones and a desk stain and headphone land these beauties from jail have audio look like something straight out of guardians of the galaxy but they're bluetooths not only are they under 50 they are under 30 bucks which kind of doesn't make sense so if you're into that retro walkman kind of look but want to get with the times these are your jam from there maybe on air over your headphones those aren't your jam I got you with a couple more options the sony WI – c300 wireless bluetooth headphones are money these things are lightweight they're come from they sound like really good they're rocking bluetooth 4.2 up to 8 hours of battery life and if you're on the Android side of camp they also connect by a OneTouch through NFC now we'll say if you're looking to work out in these headphones I think the anchor sound core Spirit X is the better option they are absolutely inspired by power beats no doubt but they're a fraction of the price they're water-resistant they have great battery life and if you're that active person these are the way to go so this far into the video there's a good chance that you picked up quite a bit of tech and more than likely you need somewhere to store all that what better place to do that then this sweet herschel backpack I've been a fan of personal backpacks for a long time now they look great they're simple but more importantly they hold up over time you can store a ton of stuff inside these things and overall they're just a great backpack option for the money so we got gifts for filmmakers for audio peeps I am absolutely not forgetting about my Nintendo switch fans this antique switch charger is kind of genius it's packing a 6,000 milliamp hour battery inside and it form fits to your switch which is crazy it's also a dual kickstand which provides much more stability when you're propping up your switch and what kind of ice is the cake or pops that cherry on top is there's built-in storage so you can store two games inside this which makes this kind of the trifecta next for those that want to upgrade their computer audio but eight don't want to pick up those little tiny speakers that don't sound that great or be pick up the bigger bulkier more expensive options this taotronics mini sound bar is a steal it's primarily designed as a sound bar for your desktop but I absolutely can see getting away with this for one of those mini TVs like in a dorm setup it connects by a 3.5 millimeter audio or USB which is awesome so you have options and again the best part about this thing is that it's under 50 bucks from that are speaking of speakers maybe you don't be tied to a desktop or cable maybe you want something more portable I got a handful of really cool options first up is the Tri bit X sound go which honestly looks like a beats pill so I am just pimping beats knockoffs but again it is much much cheaper you get fantastic sound quality's portable and really awesome battery life another really fantastic portable Bluetooth speaker is the JBL go to it tiny but it packs a pretty solid punch next when there was a little throwback to last year's gift guide where I featured this awesome french bulldog bluetooth speaker and one of my favorite human beings ever Teresa hi how are you this year we are back with a skull bluetooth speaker it's like the French Bulldog skull brother and there are two amazing things about this one when you turn it on you have like this thriller Windows acoustic guitar riff trifecta combo which is just like strangely bizarre if you're still with me after that I'm not sure if this next thing is crazy or just pure genius you can control the speaker through the teeth and on top of that it sounds good like you'll see there is a surprising amount of low-end that kind of just punches you in the face or skull so if we lower the volume the teeth there are two sections you can go next song pretty instant pretty awesome or even go previous song like who's sat there in the board room and thought yo we need a Bluetooth speaker that's shaped like a skull that dishes out Michael Jackson Thriller sounds with a hybrid of Windows and you can control it through the teeth I am personally not sure but it exists and if you wanted a Bluetooth speaker shaped like a skull that sounds good this is your perfect option next from there if skull speakers aren't a thing I get it I got one more young alternative the photosphere which honestly kind of looks like honey we blew up the Google home Mini – the smart home functionality shout out to Rick Moranis who probably would like the speaker this thing packs some really impressive sound especially when you consider the size but hands down my favorite thing about the speaker is the first question on the Amazon page which asks can you put this under your pillow and will it bother my spouse honestly I couldn't see how this would not bother your spouse so if that's something you're into this is your speaker from there shrinking things back down shut up again – Rick Moranis taking a look at the actual Google how many honestly this the best tech gadgets you can ever get for someone that is under fifty bucks in terms of smart assistance we know Siri it's a little slow and I think hands down Google assistant takes the cake and this gives you all that in a tiny compact affordable package now maybe you're not into the Google ecosystem maybe you're about that firelight you've got the 8 by 12 of Jeff Bezos in your bedroom I get it now we're talking about the echo ducts forever this was like the entry point to get into the smart home game with Amazon but fortunately now we also have options unfortunately the speaker on the echo dot isn't the greatest in the world it's small it's tinny doesn't really fill the room so if you want to step up the fabric is a great alternative and it looks really awesome but what if even the fabric isn't enough speaker for you what if you want to connect your own speaker what if you want something bigger something better enter the echo input it is essentially the Amazon echo brain that you can connect to any speaker so if you want to go like back to the future max that baby out you can throw the echo input on that and bring that smart home functionality to your massive setup from there with a new year here hopefully been keeping them New Year's resolutions hitting the gym buff dudes down if you are a great way to keep track of that is with a smart scale that doesn't break the bank with that one really important element of that is tracking you progress your results and one easy way to do that is by adding a smart scale what the problem is for the most part these tend to be pricey but not this one the UV body scale is $39.99 which almost doesn't make sense on top of just weight you can track your body fat your BMI water muscle bone visceral fat the worst kind and also muscle mass for them gains it connects via bluetooth which is awesome boats even cooler is you can store up to 20 different profiles which is quite a few and unless you're popping out kids like the Brady Bunch this should cover more than just the household from there speaking of portable travel tech that is catered to cameras the peak design capture clip v3 is kind of amazing first off it looks like something Adam West would whip out of his utility belts what it is though is this tiny little belt that's designed to secure onto your backpack strap or even your belt and give you quick-release access to your camera I get it not a lot of people want to be the strap guy so this is actually not only a cool-looking alternative with a practical one as well you can technically support up to 200 pounds so yeah if mkbhd won the throw was right on this he could I wouldn't recommend it because that would just be ridiculous but it's nice that you have that flexibility build quality is fantastic as well it's all metals so that is not gonna be an issue and again the fact that this is under 50 bucks if you shoot video or photos this is kind of a must-have next from there looking at some of my favorite travel tech the native even Smart Hub for me is essential build quality is fantastic so not gonna have to worry about throwing at my backpack and wonder if it's gonna break you get a total of four ports three regular USB ports and then one USB see which for me kind of seals the deal and makes this thing really handy on top of that you also get to AC ports on the side and I really like the fact that they're spaced out so you plug in a laptop on one side you have a room on the other side without getting cluttered necks from there is the raft power all in one file hub plus and you know if Ben guy ever had a gadget in his bag this would be it for starters there's a 6700 milliamp hour battery pack inside awesome there's also built-in SD card slot so you can wirelessly transfer photos to your phone or directly to a hard drive if you don't want to bring your laptop double awesome and then on top of that to ice the cake it is also a portable Wi-Fi router so imagine you're at a hotel and you have access to Ethernet you could actually plug that into this little guy and then it turns into this little Wi-Fi hotspot which is triple awesome from there maybe don't need all that maybe you don't need an SD card slot and just need more storage on your iPhone or potentially your older iPad the dual link from P&Y is a really solid choice this particular model get you an extra 128 gigabytes of storage so if you are maxed out or like living on a prayer this will give you some breathing room now the way this works is you have USB a on one end and then lightning on the other so you could plug this into your laptop transfer pictures onto there and then onto your iPhone but it is iOS specific conversely maybe you don't need that much storage or maybe you need something with a little more flexibility this 64 gigabyte option from mikaze is fantastic you have USB eight you have Lightning you also have USB C so it's kind of like the Swiss Army knife of USB drives now maybe the downside with this I would say that it's not like a super well-known brand that I have read a couple compatibility issues online so definitely keep that in mind when you're looking at this for your device but overall for the price I think it's a pretty stellar option next from there when I first saw this thing on Amazon I honestly thought it was kind of ridiculous but in reality it is surprisingly cool what it is is this like crazy telephoto looking five and one lens kit for your iPhone now we'll say the marketing with these things are always a little bit sketchy they say it's a five and one but you actually get four focal lengths so with that that's wide-angle macro fisheye which is always kind of a hit or miss kind of thing and then a 12 x telephoto zoom which is bonkers I will definitely say the wide-angle lens is the most useful option but I'm not gonna lie with that telephoto lens I got some pretty unique looks so next if you love USB ports or you find yourself just filling them up constantly you need this 10 port monster hub from anchor so it's awesome is you have 7 USB 3.0 ports which also pass their data but you also have 3 IQ ports which are going to use for charging what this is gonna do is rapidly charge your phone but then also ramp down and stop charging once the battery is full so you're not jacking things up from there speaking of ankor most phones these days feature wireless charging so if you want to go that route but don't want to spend a ton of money this standing charge is a fantastic option what I appreciate about this is that everything you need to charge your phone is in the box whereas with some other wireless chargers you have to buy things separately so you may not realize that get the charger in the mail and realize hey I can't use this so for me my main laptop is a 15-inch MacBook Pro when my favorite accessories is this sleeve from incase there definitely are cheaper options but for me one I love the aesthetic and two I love the build quality so it's a great way to protect your MacBook without added a ton of bulk to your carry next from there if you like organizing your tech in things that don't look like tech the 12 South book book caddy is perfect now where this makes a great companion piece is for someone who owns an iPad or a MacBook the chargers fit perfectly even with a new iPad pro featuring that magnetic Apple pencil if you're worried about losing it this is a great place to store it so from there we know Apple has completely screwed a bear which means no air pods to no wireless charging unless BAM this wireless charging case from East Brooklyn Labs which solves that problem it's pretty simple you pop your ear pods case into this and that adds a layer protection and also adds wireless charging my only complaint is it's a little counterintuitive to where you have to actually face it down to charge were instinctively I kind of want to put it the other way but either way it's still a great way to inexpensively add wirelessly charging to your air pots next from there is a tech YouTube classic the blue snowball ice which is a fantastic USB microphone that isn't going to break the bank whether you're looking to record an instrument or do a voiceover or potentially even a stream this is a perfect option it's simple its plug in place so you're not going to need an audio degree to set it up and again the most important part is this thing sounds good from there for my Apple watch users this Nomad Apple watch stand is badass its thick with three C's heavy with three V's and yeah you gotta appreciate some heft with a stand the one caveat I will say is the Apple watch charger is not included with this more than likely you have one that came with your watch so you can use that to set things up it's simple it looks great on a nightstand or desk and if you own an Apple watch this is a must-have piece of tech next from there is z2 boom or a box which does a ton of things but in a nutshell is a smart pixel speaker the most enticing thing with this is the customization you have over the LEDs whether you want to use as a clock or notifications or just smack an icon there which looks awesome the sound quality the speaker also surprised me like it's not amazing and if you're looking solely for a Bluetooth speaker I would not pick this up but if you're looking for a two in one option it's actually pretty cool and makes a great accent piece on a desk chugging down that list the retro bit re S Plus is an awesome way to play your old NES cartridges through an HDMI equipped tbh if you do want to go like super nostalgia and go AV out you do have that option as well but I think the selling point of this is definitely being able to hook this up into a modern TV personally I was more of a Sega Genesis kid because I actually remember going to Toys R Us picking up an NES playing duck hunter fight brother and then my mom made us return at the very same day so my experience with games had to hold off for a couple years if you didn't have a sad story like me though and you were an NES kid this is going to be a super cool option out of the box you get two controllers which is actually really handy because no one really wants to play by themselves whether or not that's up for debate we can't argue with the fact that it is an awesome gift especially for someone who wants to bring back a little bit of that NES nostalgia from there speaking of awesome gaming gadgets one of the biggest complaints with the Nintendo switch is the lack of Bluetooth support but this Genki bluetooth adapter completely fix effect my guy Kevin Kenton did an in-depth thorough video on this on his channel which is awesome but the TLD are of this is that it fixes the Bluetooth problem on your Nintendo switch so if you want to use this in conjunction with your favorite bluetooth headphones now you can speaking of antenna switch how would you yes you like to win your very own paired with this Bluetooth receiver the blue do headphones rounded out smacked up in that herschel backpack well my friend
