About G-SHOCK

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com

Protecting a Kid’s Hearing

For America’s youth, hearing loss is a growing epidemic. “As many as 16% of teens (ages 12  to 19) have reported some hearing loss that could have been caused by loud noise,” according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.

The driving force of this growth is that 50% of teens and young adults age 12-35 are exposed to unsafe levels of sound from their personal music players. To put that in perspective, that amounts to roughly 1.1 billion teens and young adults worldwide that are listening to their music at unsafe sound levels.

Why does Puro Sound Labs care so much about Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)?

In 2014 Puro Sound Labs founder, Dave Russell, learned that his youngest daughter, Niki, had developed Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL). The doctors told them the culprit was on her head every day…her headphones.

We’ve heard the problem.

After Niki’s diagnosis, Dave scoured the market, searching for headphones for all ages that would protect against this extremely preventable condition. He couldn’t find one brand of safe headphones that would sound good, look good and be durable enough for a kid’s lifestyle.

So, utilizing a background in the tech industry, Dave made some in 2014 – but not just any headphone – the Puro BT2200 Kids Bluetooth Headphones…the world’s only studio-grade Bluetooth headphone that puts the safety of kid’s ears first. Headquartered in sunny San Diego, California, Puro has dedicated their time and research in designing a product you, your family and your readers will love and enjoy for years to come. Puro’s mission is to protect kids against preventable Noise-Induced Hearing Loss without compromising style or sound…and have them enjoy it at the same time.

Over the past 4 years the BT2200 headphones have earned numerous awards and the highest praise for not only their protection, but also their sound quality. To make an even better kid’s headphone, Puro Sound Labs has recently launched their PuroQuiet Kid’s headphone with Active Noise Cancelling. ANC even further reduces background sounds in noisy environments. Puro has even made the PuroCalm earmuffs, for those times when listeners just want less sound overall.

Puro Sound Labs is now proud to partner with KultureCity, an organization that provides sensory-inclusive spaces and universal accessibility for children with disabilities.

For every pair of PuroCalm’s purchased, Puro Sound will donate a pair to the KultureCity Sensory Inclusive program, allowing individuals with autism and other sensory needs the ability to see and experience all the things the world has to offer without the sensory overload that often comes with the experience. Puro Sound Labs headphones are featured in all of KultureCity’s sensory initiatives, including at over 150 major sports arenas, zoos, schools and theaters, thus enabling autistic individuals a chance to cope with sensory sensitivities that so commonly interfere with their daily lives.

In addition, the partnership will feature a global social campaign and looks to join forces with celebrities, influencers and companies that are equally interesting in shifting  the autism conversation from awareness to acceptance…and provide safe listening devices from Puro Sound Labs to autistic children around the globe.  This first ever, large-scale campaign will represent a positive reflection of autism aimed at gaining acceptance and inclusion within the community at large.

Lexus NX 300 F Sport

By Jake Porter × Vaughn Lowery

Over the holiday season, we had the opportunity to traverse through NYC and the surrounding metropolitan areas with one of the auto industry’s most capable compact luxury SUVs. Due to its affordable base price, above average gas mileage, ergonomics and technology, the Lexus NX is an easy choice for many.

Value × Performance

Lexus carries a base price of $36,485 and features a 235-horsepower turbo-four engine, six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive. Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection. In addition, one can add all-wheel drive for only $1,400. By upgrading to the NX F Sport (our model tested was approximately $49,000) the vehicle has select components to enhance handling, such as an F Sport-tuned suspension and Sport S and Sport S+ drive modes. Other features in this package include paddle shifters, aluminum pedals, special body panels and badges and front sport seats with enhanced bolsters for added side support. As far as acceleration capacity, the NX should easily offer enough power for the casual driver. The NX 300 (formerly known as the NX 200t) comes with a 235-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic, and front-wheel drive. G-force sensors and adaptive cruise control set this vehicle apart from the other SUV’s on the market today.

The NX’s safety features are also top notch and include eight airbags, whiplash-injury lessening front seats, and a full array of available electronic safety systems such as lane departure alert and intelligent high-beam. With all newer Lexus models, it also includes the highly specialized and technologically advanced Lexus pre-collision Safety System. These safety features combined bring the NX to the top of its class.

Interior

Standard features on the interior of the NX include an infotainment system with an 10.3-inch display screen, Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, an eight-speaker audio system, and satellite radio. A wireless device charger and heads-up display are a couple of great additional features. Not to mention, those scarlet red race-inspired designer seats and red stitched dash appointments. Of course, climate control as well as heated seats and steering are always winners during the winter months.

Comfort

Given the already generous backseat room in the car, the NX also includes power-folding rear seats. Additionally, the cabin is extremely quiet even at highway speeds which is a great feature especially for long road trips.

Technology

Newly offered Alexa, allows the driver to stream Amazon music, listen to audiobooks and control their living quarters via smart-home. Other capabilities includes their smartwatch to help lock and unlock vehicle as well as monitors their lent model’s speed and fuel levels. One of their most important and intuitive features is Direction Assist, allowing a friendly human exchange with an operator who can input addresses into your navigation while you pay closer attention to the road. And of course in this digitally renovated world, having someone to speak to while on a solo trip can be conducive with driver’s fatigue. On the other hand, for those introverts seeking a quiet more therapeutic ride, they can utilize the remote touchpad to interact with the SUV’s overall cerebrum.

Conclusion

The Lexus NX 300 F Sport is one-of-a-kind. Even in a overly-crowded compact SUV market, the Lexus NX still manages to push through into the limelight. With its interior loaded with technology and its bold exterior turning heads on the streets, this is a great purchase for anyone looking for a sporty yet roomy modern SUV. Moreover, if you don’t like being at the pump every week and being able to fit in a small parking spot within a metropolis – this is a MUST-BUY.

Mojo Nomad Central

Mojo Nomad Central – a ground-breaking concept designed to turn the traditional hotel model on its head- will open this September on Queens Road Central in the heart of Hong Kong. The property is the second to open from the Mojo Nomad brand, Hong Kong’s first hotel concept with shared working spaces, and a member of the Ovolo Hotels group.

“Following the unprecedented success of Mojo Nomad Aberdeen, on the western shore of Hong Kong Island, we’re excited to unveil a second Mojo Nomad property in Hong Kong, this time in the city’s bustling Central District,” says Girish Jhunjhnuwala, the visionary behind the Mojo Nomad concept, and founder & CEO of Ovolo Hotels. The edgy, design-driven concept draws on the hotelier’s desire to make a difference. “We are giving modern travelers access to a multi-use space where they can be productive, collaborate, seek adventure and experience new things,” continued Girish.

The first of its kind in the region, the Mojo Nomad concept combines a mix of designer rooms, from private to accommodation options for families, groups and friends, paving the way for a new type of value-driven design hospitality. Mojo Nomad’s communal spaces encourage guests to connect with new people and ideas, tapping into a thriving demographic of explorers and addressing the changing demands of the ever-evolving traveler.

The new Mojo Nomad Central offers a total of 56 guest rooms ranging from size S to XL; two of the property’s rooms will offer shared accommodations. Adhering to the brand’s commitment to integrating the latest in technology and design, each room is equipped with multiple USB and traditional plug sockets, as well as international adapters. Shared rooms are fitted with individual televisions and Bluetooth headphone capabilities, as well. A flexible-use space on the property’s second floor will offer a refreshment bar and shared kitchen with additional working and lounge areas. On the third floor, the gym offers TRX equipment, punching bags, yoga mats and more.

A two-story Mexican eatery, Te Quiero Mucho, will serve share-style plates and margaritas alongside a broad selection of artisanal tequilas. The bar, which also serves as the hotel’s reception desk, is decked out with eye-catching neon.

“Our inspirational new hotel collection is designed for those seeking a better way of living. At Mojo Nomad, guests are able to unite around common interests and enjoy a unique style of community living, which values openness and collaboration without compromise. Whether your stay be long or short, you’ll be a part of our community,” concluded Girish.

Pirelli Design Launches Audio Speaker

July 24, 2018 – Pirelli has joined forces with IXOOST, an Italian firm from Modena that specializes in high-end car audio, to create a new sound experience inspired by motorsport. The result is an exclusive hi-fi system that includes a cutting-edge Bluetooth™ speaker within a replica Wind Tunnel Tire: made by Pirelli for Formula 1™ Teams to conduct aerodynamic testing.

The wind tunnel is a vital tool for Formula 1™ Teams to study every aspect of air flow, in their unending search for optimal performance – where the tires play a vital role as well.

And from the scale-model F1™ Wind Tunnel tire, PIRELLI P ZERO™ sound by IXOOST was born. This is a mini tire that sets new standards of design and technology, traveling its own road when it comes to music.

The acoustic system includes a powerful amplifier with a 100-watt digital signal processor and is equipped with a 100-millimeter midwoofer as well as a 25-millimeter silk tweeter.  The whole system is made entirely in Italy by IXOOST, featuring hand-crafted unique touches and attention to detail.

With the most advanced 4.0 Bluetooth™ APTX technology, PIRELLI P ZERO™ sound can connect wirelessly to smartphones and other compatible devices, enhancing the audio signal in wireless mode and ensuring the best possible playback.

PIRELLI P ZERO™ Sound is available in nine different colors that reflect those used to distinguish the different racing compounds. Thanks to its appealing shape and extremely compact dimensions (330 millimeters diameter and maximum depth of 200 millimeters), this inspiring design piece will fit in anywhere, lending a unique and original touch to its surroundings.

The new speaker was previewed at the FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAND PRIX DE FRANCE 2018. PIRELLI P ZERO™ sound will be seen in the F1 Pirelli Hot Laps garage during other Grand Prixs this year.

REMIX

V-MODA Offers REMIX Bluetooth® Speaker & Headphone Amp


World’s first 3D-printed fully faceted custom product with hi-fi sound quality


V-MODA (LVCC South Hall, Booth #MP25679), the award-winning maker of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, is exhibiting REMIX – the company’s first portable Bluetooth® speaker that delivers uncompromising sound quality and design along with unrivaled 3D-printed customization options for every surface. The culmination of three years of R&D involving dozens of engineers and over 50 prototypes, REMIX is the next chapter in the V-MODA story.

“After developing our critically acclaimed headphones, we felt it was time to evolve, to ‘remix’ the V-MODA sound into a new form. We already had our innovative headphones with their world-renowned sound, materials and personalization; why can’t a speaker achieve the same goals and excel at the same vision?” says Val Kolton, V-MODA’s founder. “Now, after three long years of development, V-MODA’s REMIX is ready – travel-friendly and compact, yet with full-bodied sound that’s as detailed at low volumes as it is at full power. It is a historic landmark product because it is the first consumer product available right now where all surfaces are customizable via futuristic, additive-manufacturing technology.”

Built on the foundation of V-MODA’s multi-award-winning audio technology, REMIX projects precise and vibrant sound at all listening levels. Available in two finishes – minimal CNC aluminum and luxurious vegan leather – this premium speaker exemplifies the work of V-MODA’s Milano-based design studio; classically styled, beautifully proportioned and completely customizable on all six sides to reflect the personality of its owner.

Measuring just over 7.8″ (20cm) wide, REMIX is designed to go anywhere, delivering phenomenal, lifelike sound wherever you go. Powered by a newly designed glass-fiber diaphragm and long coil drivers, REMIX also features a rear-mounted bass reflex port for an accurate, clearly defined sound that’s powerful enough for monitoring duties during mobile recording and production. REMIX is not just for traveling – it is also ideal for the home or the office, completely transforming the sound of a laptop computer, or bringing superior audio reproduction into the bedroom or outdoors. 
Another remarkable world’s-first is that REMIX includes a headphone amplifier in wired analog mode, which is comparable to standalone headphone amplifiers worth $200 or more. Owners of high-end, higher-impedance headphones can drive them as they were made to be driven – with 83mW x 2 energy – thanks to REMIX’s built-in V-MODA VAMP technology and experience. Headphone amplifiers have far greater wattages than conventional smartphones and computers, which are generally built to drive earbuds rather than high-end headphones. Audiophiles have long understood the benefits of including a headphone amplifier in their audio setup, and now consumers can, too.

As the world’s first 3D-printed custom speaker, all six sides of REMIX can be personalized (patent-pending). Using V-MODA’s renowned jewelry-grade 3D-printing expertise, owners can add new sides, change the front grill or even replace the main “C-shell” housing for the ultimate in bespoke appearance.

A range of materials is available: lightweight matte fiber in nine vibrant colors (from $40 to $250 depending on the parts), five distinctive versions of steel ($140 to $2,000), raw brass and bronze (sides only, $3,500), sterling silver (sides only, $4,500), 14k gold-plated and rhodium (sides only, $5,000), 14-karat gold (sides only, $130,000) and even platinum (sides only, $370,000).

REMIX is now available in Black or Silver for $300.00 (USD) at V-MODA.com/REMIX and authorized resellers in the U.S.

3D printing customization is also available exclusively at V-MODA.com/REMIX with prices of 3D parts ranging down from $370,000 to $40.

Crossfade 2 Wireless Headphones 

V-MODA Offers Crossfade 2 Wireless Headphones


Next-generation performance in analog cabled or Bluetooth® modes, plus new colors and CliqFold™ mechanism


 V-MODA (LVCC South Hall, Booth #MP25679), the award-winning maker of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, offers its Crossfade 2 Wireless Over-Ear headphones. Building on the success of V-MODA’s original Crossfade M-100 and Wireless headphones, which have won 29 editors’ choice and best headphones awards, the new model raises the bar in sound quality with Hi-Res Audio certification, larger cushions, new colors, longer battery life and the iconic CliqFold™ design.

“V-MODA’s Crossfade headphones are the epitome of versatility,” says Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA. “Once people own a truly great set of our headphones, they use them constantly in various use cases. And whether you are critically listening, producing music, DJing, gaming, watching movies or even working out, Crossfade 2 Wireless delivers on every level. How you connect them is irrelevant – you will love what you hear.”

Powered by new dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers using a high-resolution CCAW coil that is made in Japan, Crossfade 2 is certified by Japan Audio Society (JAS) to the Hi-Res Audio standard in wired mode. With an extended frequency range from 5Hz to 40kHz, you can now connect to a lossless music service or 24bit/96kHz playback sources and experience an increased dynamic range.

Crossfade 2 Wireless is built to travel, thanks to the patent-pending CliqFold design that folds down to fit into the deceptively small travel case. With newly added vents (V-PORT™) to ensure that air can circulate within to let the headphones breathe after a live performance or a workout, the case also has room to store charging and audio cables along with other extras like USB drives and earplugs.

The new memory foam features enhanced comfort and size. Hundreds of prototypes with small variances were tested by V-MODA’s CEO for over three months to perfect every fine detail of the cushions, as “the fit is the sound.”

The concealed microphone is optimized for phone calls and voice recognition, which is made easier still with the inclusion of a rugged Kevlar-reinforced SpeakEasy™ cable for wired use.

Crossfade 2 Wireless retains the luxurious combination of steel and metal materials along with improved vegan leather that meets military-standard MIL-STD-810G testing guidelines. The cables are tested and reinforced to bend over 1 million times, up to 100 times the industry standard. 
Style has also been upgraded on Crossfade 2, which brings back the fan-favorite color Matte Black (unavailable on the first version) and introduces two colors: Matte White and Rose Gold.

Crossfade 2 Wireless is compatible with V-MODA’s popular accessory ecosystem, which includes 3D-printed shields; laser-engraved aluminum shields; BoomPro Mic for gamers, calls and broadcasters; XL cushionsCoilPro cable; 1/3-button Speakeasy cables; VAMP DAC/AMP; and the newly released REMIX® headphone amplifier + Bluetooth® speaker.

The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is 15% bigger than the previous version and provides up to 14+ hours of continuous music, entertainment and calls. But unlike most Bluetooth headphones, you can carry on listening with the same sound even when the battery is dead. Plugging in the supplied cable instantly switches the headphones to pure analog mode, which deactivates all onboard electronics for situations where zero latency is important. Once near a power socket, use the included V-Micro USB cable to fully recharge in around two and a half hours.

Crossfade 2 Wireless is now available in three colors optimized for personalization: Matte Black ($330), Matte White ($330) and Rose Gold featuring Qualcomm aptX ($350) at V-MODA.com/Crossfade-2-Wireless and authorized resellers worldwide.

3D printing and 2D laser customization is also available exclusively at V-MODA.com/Crossfade-2-Wireless.

GO:SERIES

Roland Exhibits GO:SERIES Products


Portable musical series, including GO:KEYS, GO:PIANO and GO:MIXER, 
offers a new concept for novices and music lovers


Roland (LVCC Central Hall, Booth #17544) is displaying its GO:SERIES of products, a high-quality yet highly affordable line that makes it easy to create or capture life’s musical moments. The series includes the GO:KEYS Music Creation Keyboard (GO-61K), the GO:PIANO Digital Piano (GO-61PC) and the GO:MIXER Audio Mixer for Smartphones. A first for their price point, both keyboard models in the series also offer Bluetooth® connectivity for added musical and learning possibilities.

The portable, battery-powered GO:KEYS offers music-making possibilities for those interested in creating their own music but have not learned to play piano notes or chords, or even read music. Its unique design offers one-touch operation with a “Loop Mix” feature, in which different instrument patterns are assigned to a range of keys on the keyboard. A simple key-press creates a musical pattern that can be combined with others to create custom grooves while intuitive touch pads enable the sounds to be easily manipulated in real time. Built-in speakers and headphones jack offer on-the-go sound anywhere.

The battery-powered GO:PIANO features 61 full-size piano-style keys and high-quality sound derived from Roland’s professional digital piano models, all in an affordable package designed for beginners. Included are a variety of instrument sounds such as piano, organs, strings, and more, plus onboard practice features, a sustain pedal, headphones jack for private playing, and a built-in speaker system. The GO:PIANO comes with an education bundle that contains everything needed to get started, including a lesson book and built-in songs from the best-selling Faber Piano Adventures®.

GO:MIXER is a compact audio mixer for smartphone video production that is also powered by the smartphone. Compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, it connects digitally with up to five sources via an included cable, providing clear stereo sound that’s far better than the phone’s built-in mono mic or analog line input. With multiple inputs available, users can connect a mic, musical instruments, and media players, and mix them all together live while they shoot—the ideal solution for adding pro sound to social media videos.

For more information about GO:KEYS (U.S. Street $299), GO:PIANO (U.S. Street $329) with education bundle, and GO:MIXER (U.S. Street $99), please visit Roland.com.
