Urbanear Announces Their Newest Zinken

Since the creation of Beats by Dre, headphones have become popular for people beyond the audiophiles who want top of the line quality music at all times. It has transformed from a normally used accessory in the home to something we would wear in public as a fashion accessory as well. Urbanears creates their products based upon visual appeal as much as audio quality. Their recently released Zinken stands as an example; it presents a clean and modern feel that packs a heavy punch when given the opportunity. 

With features such the TurnCable and ZoundPlug, the Zinken is compatible with anyone's needs. Constructed with rugged Kevlar on the inside, the TurnCable is compatible with DJ mixers using a 6.3mm plug while also using a 3.5mm plug on the other end for normal use with mobile phones and iPods. It is also coiled for extra extension for DJs while performing at a show. The ZoundPlug allows two headphones to enjoy tunes through a single audio source. By connecting two headphones through the ZoundPlug, your friend can listen to whatever you're listening to.

Cushioned with large padding on both the cups and the headband, the design of the Zinken allows it to sit on your head hours on end without feeling any discomfort. Thanks to the extra ear cushions, you get more noise isolation too. Packed within the ear cups are custom dual 40mm drivers that will blast spectacular sound across the entire spectrum. 

Not only did Urbanears make sure the Zinken performed and appeared as amazing as it could be, they wanted to assure a reasonable price point to fit anybody's budget, even the aspiring musician's. Available in Urbanear retailers and on their website, the Zinken will cost you $140. It is difficult to find quality that the Zinken promises in this budget range.

Apple To Release White iPod Touch 5G?

We've got our white and black iPhone 4s and iPad 2s, but where is our white iPod Touch?! Thankfully, we've got some hope with a brand new leak of what looks to be a white iPod Touch front screen panel that iFixit has leaked. September is fast approaching and that's generally the month when Apple refreshed the iPod line. At this point we don't know if Apple will announce a brand new and redesigned iPod Touch 5G, or only add a white model to the current lineup.

Zentertain's iOS App Lets You Download Free Music Legally & Illegally

There's nothing wrong with downloading free music legally right? An app made by Zentertain called "Free Music Download" has been approved by Apple and is now the number one downloaded free app in the App Store. Free Music Download app suggests you can download free music legally with pre-set sites that offer free legal music downloads for your choosing. The problem is, there's also a browser built into the app that will let you browse Google and other sites that don't offer legal music downloads. The app lets you download anything and everything your heart desires. Legal or not. Problem? Definitely. No attempts were made by the app creators to block such simple access by anyone who wants to download music illegally.

First he picked a great song to rock out to and then he accompanied it by playing his part of the song on his set of motion controlled air drums he built into a pair of flip-flops and gardening rakes using a few accelerometers, a MIDI controller and a Adruino Uno. This is the future of music instruments folks. Video after the break!
