All Cool Mind-blowing Gadgets You Love in One Place

Cool Tech Under $50 - December

what's up guys is that from Texas and welcome to another episode of cool tech just in time for the holidays all the products in this video are under $50 and they actually make great gifts to kick things off we have the gam des Hermes mechanical keyboard and gaming mouse combo or the G KC 1001 for short with a solid rating on Amazon current price of $40 and red mechanical switches it kind of sounded like a great deal and after using it for a week I've walked away impressed let's start off with the main product of this bundle the mechanical keyboard when you pick it up the first thing you notice is the exceptional build quality everything is plastic but it's well put together and there is no rattling at all the USB cable is also braided and gold-plated the red mechanical switches are from a company called TPC and they're very similar to Cherry MX switches in fact when compared to Cherry MX red switches I honestly couldn't tell the difference here's a quick audio snippet of me typing with this keyboard there's not a popular brand so they are a lot cheaper and the savings are passed down to the customer which I always like to see it comes well equipped with 21 key rollover two programmable macro keys and up to six player profiles the keys are all separately lit and LEDs are located right above the switch but unfortunately they only light up in red as they aren't RGB but at this price point that was expected the caps num and scroll lock keys light up separately depending on if the function is either on or off the switches are responsive and activate with only half key press it's actually very similar to the cursor shape that I'm using currently the rebo switch is the mouse included is simple I mean nothing too crazy in terms of features or design it goes from 800 to 3500 dpi so there's plenty of room for customization there's also a dpi change button that cycles through different user program levels and something like this is great for games like overwatch since you can swap between characters during the same match that will quire different levels of sensitivity all the buttons found on the mouse excluding a left-click can be user mapped to different functions through the software and here's also where users can set custom profiles and these profiles include different cursors scroll and double-click speeds during poll rates and of course the LED control the LEDs on this unlike the keyboard are RGB but I found the color to be poorly produced this is true only when trying to change certain colors and as you can see the mouse doesn't produce them correctly the cable is braided and overall the mouse feels solid in the hand I would say however it's on the smaller side so you've got a bigger hand like me and this could be annoying as a bundle you're getting a good deal here for about 40 bucks now if you're in the market for a keyboard and mouse and are into red switches and don't mind the smaller mouse size that I would definitely pick this up you won't be able to find a better priced combo anywhere especially for mechanical keyboards the second item of the show is the nub low s2 bluetooth headphones starting with the build quality they do feel solid and the stainless steel headband gives a good amount of flex the construction is mostly plastic but there is some aluminum used as well I also think they look stylish with its color combination of orange black and different shades of silver the indication LED is also nicely placed in the center of the right ear cup which is a nice touch the white model looks just as cool so in the box you get a microUSB cable as well as a decently sized auxilary cord look at one of the vise we can see a micro USB port auxiliary port as well as three multifunction buttons the volume rockers allow you to change the tracks when held down and the power button also allows for play and pause and also call control as far as comfort is concerned these aren't going to be the best as they are designed to go on the ear instead of around it I mean I can personally wear these for three hours before they start getting uncomfortable but this will vary on the size of your head and of course how sensitive you are in terms of audio quality it's not bad they're obviously not going to be amazing or blow you away as they are budget bluetooth headphones but if you're into heavy bass then you'll like these they are very bass heavy genres like rap and techno benefit the most from the sound signature but I've also noticed is that the sound has zero distortion even at high volumes as is with most bluetooth headphones plug in the auxiliary port and the audio does improve a bit with a tighter bass response the noise isolation is also pretty good considering it's an on-ear design at about 70 percent volume any outside noises inaudible or completely muted but they do also leak quite a bit of sound so if you're the type of person that blasts your music all the time and want people hearing what you're listening to you might want to look elsewhere here's a quick audio sample from when the headphones are both on and off the S 2's provide 14 hours of usage and 500 hours of standby time and at its current price of $37 you can go wrong especially for a gift our third item is again a mouse but this one's a bit different the Lenovo yoga mouse is the perfect solution for mobile media and professional setups and here's why but offers a bunch of features in an incredibly slim body so works with Bluetooth and if your device isn't Bluetooth ready you do get a dongle that will pair your device automatically with the yoga mouse what's unique about this mouse is that it flips into two different modes mouse and multimedia when it's in Mouse mode it's easy to use and surprisingly organ Amish we get a touch-sensitive scroll wheel that works really well with a max DPI of 1600 flipping it back to the flat side is when the media controls light up and give us a command over videos volume and even presentations now although the presentation mode is pretty useful in classroom presentations or even meetings I personally don't use that I do however take it with me wherever I travel and I always keep it in mouse mode you guys can actually find this for around $30 on Amazon next I'm gonna switch things up and talk about organization now if you guys watch the channel at all you will know that organization and cable management is a big part of who I am and I'm always on a hunt for inexpensive yet effective ways to improve your cable management and that's where these cable clips come in it's a simple solution to one of my most annoying pet peeves which are cables especially when I'm traveling I don't like leaving behind anything that might come in handy when I'm away from home for an extended period of time I usually carry a few things in my tech bags from several smartphones a tablet laptop earphones headphones etc so with these new clips I can actually organize all my cables into a much smaller space as well as ensure they won't get damaged or tangled the best part is that they're extremely cheap at about five dollars and they make great gifts for clean freaks like me in your family and finally the last item on the list is the gooseneck device holder now most of you guys are probably wondering what the hell is this doing on the list but trust me guys this thing is actually pretty cool so the Stan is very easy to hook up to your table just basically twist the bottom to loosen or tighten it and it does support tables with a max thickness of 3 inches the clamp at the top is spring-loaded so will adjust to fit your phone or tablet going from 4 inches to about 11 inches once the tablet or smartphone is hooked up to the arm it's very secure and doesn't wobble one bit the head does rotate a full 360 and the material used for the arm allows for setup in any position I've used it in my kitchen on my desk even while in bed to watch a movie and I've got to say it's worth getting it's currently going for only $21 in Amazon and I might pick up a few just to have around in the house so that is if my cool tech for this month
