Everyone nowadays, possibly including myself, wants to be a video blogger. If you are familiar with Gimbal stabilizers, you know how expensive they are. Granted that this Zhiyun stabilizer can’t be called cheap per se, it is definitely less than half the price of the aforementioned Gimbal. A 3-axis, which is an important distinction, stabilizer will make the footage a lot more smooth by keeping whichever camera that you decide to use in a more upright position and smoothing your turns and bumps, so you can better film your swollen face with your shaky arms after a night of heavy drinking.
Superlux HD681 headphones are one of the highest-quality headphones in this price range on AliExpress. These are semi open-back over-ear headphones. They can play sounds as sensitive as 10 dB, and frequencies as low as 10 hz. Superlux is basically the Grado of the cheap cans, they’re not mainstream but for the people who value the quality of the sound and are poor I can’t think of a better option than these. And if you want them even faster, you can get them on Amazon – just to mention they are marked as Amazon’s Choice for the impressive price-quality ratio, just as indicated in the raving reviews left on both sites.
Mechanical keyboards aren’t something that everyone will love/understand the point of, but I have a feeling that some of you nerds might enjoy it. I have been using one since this summer, and, man, do I love it! The sound it makes alone is worth it, and the feeling of the precision sends shivers down my spine each time I use it. Definitely not overselling it here, ask any IT guy or research this online. They're truly amazing. Mechanical keys better handle several keys pressed at once, you can replace the broken ones individually, and they also last much longer. Mechanical keyboards also tend to wear much slower, and it is significantly more difficult for the keys to get stuck.
An expensive gaming mouse can run as high as $200. But unless you are a hardcore or a pro gamer, or if your parents don’t own a factory that generates the amount of wealth equivalent to the GDP of a South-American country, it probably doesn’t make a lot of sense to blow that much on a mouse. Instead I present to you a gaming mouse with a 3200DPI sensitivity and 6 programmable buttons.
Wireless waterproof earphones. I’m actually not sure if I should call these earphones or headphones, because even though they are in-ear, there still is a headband. They feature a 3.0 Bluetooth connection, which isn’t ideal but sort of expected for the price. With it enabled, they last for around 4 hours, but in case there is a need for the longer play time, there is SD card slot. Granted, the quality of the sound isn’t the greatest, but again, if we take into the account the $5 price, they are pretty decent.
When I have my laptop hooked up to the TV I had to occasionally stand up and press play because Netflix sometimes randomly stops when I binge-watch episodes of Archer. But thanks to this device I can keep laying in the bed without moving. This thing comes with a USB bluetooth receiver, that has a working range of approximately 8 meters, or around 25 feet. It requires 2 AAA batteries, which will make touchpad signal notchy at the end of their lifespan. I’ve had mine for over a year now, which, in case you are wondering, works just as new.
A TDS, which stands for Total Dissolved Solids, water tester is a device that is used to determine the quality of water and to see if it needs further purification. It can test for three kinds of impurities, and I’m just reading it off the items description here, soluble salts – like calcium and magnesium, heavy metal ions like chromium, zinc and lead, and ionic organic compounds. If this stuff sounds like something you don’t want in your drinking water, get one of these things.
Personally, I am not a big fan of smartwatches. I’ve had a few, and even though I liked all of them, the battery life never did it for me. If this is something you can deal with, and if you like technology (just as much as me, you see) get the watch that not only show time but counts your steps, measures your heart rate, takes pictures and tells you when someone is calling your phone, or sends you text messages. Always and forever.
