Controller for NES Classic Mini

Recently one of my NES controllers started to act up so getting this has been really nice on top of the Wireless NES Controller I reviewed a couple days ago.

Now this controller is pretty close to the actual one but the buttons feel different. The A and B button don’t feel as responsive as a normal controller and when trying to tap the quickly they make quite a loud plastic on plastic tapping sound.

I got this mostly for my Dad who plays our NES Classic Mini a lot and since getting the wireless controller I don’t think hes tried this new one. Overall if you need a controller and especially since this one can be bought through Amazon Prime One-day/Same-day shipping I recommend it, but going back to the Wireless NES Controller I would recommend instead getting that since its not much more expensive and it’s wireless!

If you’re interested in buying this controller here is the link¬†on Amazon.

I received this item at a reduced price.

Sol Republic Wireless (Bluetooth) Tracks Air

I got these a couple months ago and they are very nice.

The lows and the highs sound pretty clear, although the sound entirely in the left ear can go out randomly. The problem with the earphone is caused by the metal connections that run through the band connecting the left and right headphone becoming disconnected. Slightly shifting both the left and right headphone will fix this issue though.

The battery life is pretty good too. While the headset usually tells you an approximation of how long the current charge will last it is usually an underestimation.

Another nice feature of these headphones are the ability to be wired too in case they die or you can’t connect via Bluetooth.

If you are interested you can find these headphones here.

Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Microphone – Brushed Metal Rechargeable Wireless Sound System

61Sp2hNnR5L._SL1000_

I love the design of this speaker it looks amazing with the metal shell on it. You turn it on by pressing the top and having it pop up you will hear three tones and the a voice will say “Bluetooth” indicating you are paired with a phone via Bluetooth. You are also able to connect to it using an auxiliary cable. The controls are pretty simple you move your finger in a clockwise motion around the black ring on top to turn up the volume and counter-clockwise to turn it down, there is also a pause/play button, and there is a button used to answer calls since it has a mic on it you can use that to communicate with the person on the other line. It has a blue light that flashes while it is connected to an audio device and has a steady blue light when in pairing mode.
It uses a micro USB cable to charge it took me about 2.5 hours to charge it to full from after having it die when I was using it. The battery lasted a little more than four hours on Bluetooth but on the auxiliary cord I was able to use it for about six hours. Having a 600 mAh battery and the sound quality I get from this speaker I am amazed it lasted that long.
This speaker sounds amazing the lows sound amazing for the size of the speaker and the highs are crisp and clear.
Overall this speaker looks really nice and feels sturdy it has some weight to it and a non-slip grip on the bottom which I like even more so it doesn’t move around while I listen to music.
