Skullcandy Riff Wireless Headphones Review

skull candy riff wireless


These headphones offer good value with quality sound, a comfortable fit and easy pairing to your phone. The hardest part of using these headphones is just getting them out of the box. Pairing is seamles and they're way more comfortable to wear than the images would suggest.  For $30 you'll be hard pressed to find a better on-ear solution for walking and listening to music or talking on the phone.  We would not recommend these for running, travel or office use as they will not block out enough external use.  However, for walking in the neighborhood and being ready to take calls these are a good solution.  The microphone sounds great, just like talking directly into the phone.  You'll want to avoid lound streets and misc. noise because these are not noise canceling and all that racket will come through on the other side.  Build wise it's fine as long as you don't abuse your stuff.  The headband is plastic and yes we could easily snap it if we tried.  But again, back to the $30 price point, what do you expect.  Overall we were pleasantly surprised with the Riff line from Skullcandy.

A Good, Basic Office Chair for Working From Home

IKEA OFFICE CHAIR oerfjaell

The ÖRFJÄLL swivel office chair from IKEA is a good chair and good value at $49. We recently tested everything at IKEA with both male and female users. The ÖRFJÄLL stood out as the most comfortable and best value. It's a simple design that allows you mix and match seat and base colors. Assembly takes just a few minutes too. So if you find yourself on your next Zoom call sitting on a ergonomically challenged dining chair with a sore back and behind, consider getting yourself a decent office chair. Your body will thank you.
