  • ClarityOne w102 Over Ear Headphones White ClarityOne's new over-ear headphones with PureSound technology in white

     


    There are a lot of high-end, high-performance universally compatible headphones and earbuds on the market. Beats by Dr. Dre probably comes to mind, and maybe even Incipio. But if you aren't already acquainted with ClarityOne, you're missing out. The company is responsible for some of the best earbuds we've ever seen (or heard?), and now, with their new over-ear headphones, they've earned our title of mobile accessory of the week yet again.


    Last time we checked in with ClarityOne, we were amazed at the patented PureSound Processor used in their earbuds to eliminate all distortion and allow for top sound clarity. As one reviewer from BlackBerry OS noted, the PureSound processor isn't just a gimmick, but was more than 12 years in the making. It works by creating "opposing magnetic forces that cancel out the inductive reactance."


    Not surprisingly, the company has put the same technology into their new over-ear headphones, so you get your music, and nothing else, in a comfortable over-ear model.


    If you're curious about specs, BlackBerry OS  was good enough to put a list together:


    • Sensitivity (1kHz): 110dB SPL/mW
    • Frequency Range: 35 Hz – 17 kHz
    • Jack Plug: 3.5 mm stereo gold plated with 1/8 to /1/4 adapter
    • Cable Length: 48 in/1.12 m
    • Transducer: neodymium magnet
    • Impedance (1kHz): 8 ohm

    ClarityOne Over Ear Headphones Black


    And, along with the fact that they provide pretty much the best sound you'll ever get from a set of headphones, extra thoughtful details, like the ability to swivel the headphones' earpieces, make these fairly hard to match.


    Of course, ClarityOne's over-ear headphones are compatible with almost every device you can name – tablets like the Acer Iconica, Apple devices like iPhone and iPod, Samsung phones like the Galaxy line, and pretty much every other cell phone you can connect headphones to. So you can enjoy exceptional sound quality and clarity whenever and on whatever device.

  • New Moshi iGlaze Armour Case for iPhone 5 Moshi's new iGlaze Armour Cases for iPhone 5 comes in lustrous metallic finishes

     


    When it comes to cell phone accessories, Moshi is one of the best. And that's especially true in respect to their collection of iPhone 5 cases, which seems to be growing on a weekly basis. Their speciality is in combining sleek and compact designs with a style that borders on runway-worthy. In fact, the company describes itself as a "purveyor of electronics fashion," rather than simply a maker of carrying cases and covers.


    It's no surprise then that the latest Moshi iPhone 5 case is just as elegant (some would even say beautiful) as the rest of their accessories. A continuation of their popular iGlaze case series, the iGlaze Armour is a brilliant and lustrous iPhone 5 case with a sleek and rich-looking metallic finish.


    Available in either Silver, a gold-like Bronze, or a shiny jet Black, the iGlaze Armour combines a polycarbonate frame with a diamond-cut aluminum backplate, so you get strength at the core and a seriously sexy metallic outer.


    We at Pure Mobile are already carrying the Bronze version, and we hope we're not going too far in saying that it's so stunning and so elegant that, in the flesh, it's actually reminiscent of a gold brick.


    It's a sophisticated, and more importantly, a practical choice for your iPhone 5. Glamorous for women, and sophisticated for men, it reminds us of something either James Bond or Marilyn Monroe could carry around.


    Again, Moshi has proved itself not only one of the best, but possibly the most fashion-conscious of cell phone accessories makers, as the iGlaze Armour iPhone 5 Case goes beyond mere protection and practicality with an elevated and endlessly elegant appeal.

  • Today's man is stylish and cosmopolitain, well-connected and well dressed. And it's about time we found a laptop bag that answered to that. Good thing then that we at Pure Mobile recently came across the LE Rush from Be.ez.


    Designed for MacBook Air and Macbook Pro up to 13-inch, It's one of the top styles we've seen in laptop travel bags for men on the go. Simple and classic, it's got the look of a sleek messenger bag – that all-season menswear staple – but comes with the storage, organization and protection you need for your MacBook laptop.



    As much as we love the exterior of the LE Rush, especially in the modern and masculine brown and black "Black Coffee" finish, there ought to be something said here for its interior and for the quality of its construction.


    Made with a high-durability and low-maintenance nylon outer, it's strong and dirt resistant, with handles and removable strap for either briefcase or messenger carrying styles.


    On the inside, it boasts a custom-fit compartment for MacBook Air and MacBook pro laptops of up to 13 inches, with high-density padding to protect your device. There's also place for documents and a front pocket with contrasting brown inner on the flap for extra storage, so its really the only bag you need for work or school.


    With the LE Rush Bag, Be.ez has done well by modern men, serving up a travel bag that looks more like fashion that it does a mobile accessory, but which offers the protection, comfort and organization you need from a laptop bag. It's just one thing that'll make your busy life that much easier, and it looks good to boot.

  • Incipio Capture Rugged Case for Ativ Smart PC in Black


    We're beginning to see a growing trend in mobile devices. These days, more so than ever, device makers are offering up gadgets that don't squarely fit the mould of phone, tablet or PC. Phablets are but one example, and the recent Samsung ATIV Smart PC is another. As a result, mobile accessories makers are having to think outside the box, with cases, skins and other accessories that are just as unique as the devices themselves.


    In the case of Sasung's ATIV Smart PC, writes Slash Gear "you’ve got a tablet that’s not meant to be as thin or mobile, instead concentrating on the idea that you’re going to be working with a backpack or a large carrying case to get this unit around, noting that it’s a large tablet first, and mobile second."

    And today's mobile accessory of the week gets that spot on. With q hybrid design that blends a plextonium inner hard shell and outer silicone skin, it offers the protection you'd expect from any good tablet case.


    But since it's designed for a device that's not necessarily very portable, or not mobile in the strictest sense, it also boasts design features that address that fact. For instance, an integrated padded hand strap on the back of the case makes it easy to view content, or to simply move your ATIV Smart PC from room to room, the way you would an ordinary tablet.


    So far, Incipio's Capture Rugged Case is one of the best examples we've seen of an accessory that's as unique as the gadget it's designed for. Without a doubt, Samsung will continue its foray into phablets, large tablets and other devices that blur the lines of product category. And we can only hope that Incipio will be right there to offer up carrying cases and accessories for these new breeds of phones and tablets.

  • mentalKase foam case for iPhone 4 4S mentalKase promises rugged protection for the "Bear Grylls adventurer"

     


    Okay, so we all want to keep our fragile and costly devices protected. But have we gone a little too far in making crazy brick-like carrying cases to keep them safe? mentalKase, a new line of protective iPhone cases on Kickstarter, has led us to conclude yes and no.


    At first glance, we completely pshawed the mentalKase. Branded as a sort of ultimate outdoorsman's carrying case, It looks like a really big silicone skin with a handle, wrapped around a slightly smaller silicone skin. Combined, the two layers practically double the size of your iPhone – talk about bulky!


    But the case (which is compatible with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5 model in the works) isn't actually silicone. Its inner layer is made of TPU, while the large outer layer is made of micro-cell rubberized foam (MCRF), which mentalKase says "protects sensitive electronics from shock and impact" like nothing else.


    And while their video shows someone dropping their iPhone, clad in a mentalKase, from a two-story rooftop, and another person chucking theirs into the air like a juggler, one wonders if any normal person would ever need protection for such activities? Nonetheless, the the iPhones survive, so at least we know the mentalKase does what it's supposed to.


    Another little drawback to the mental case is that, while the outer layer allows access to the headphone jack, no mention is made of any of the other iPhone ports, so we're not really sure how you're supposed to charge with it on. Nevermind that it's not particularly attractive, though you can remove the outside and use just the inner layer.


    It's also behind some other heavy-duty iPhone accessories, like the Lifeproof, and OtterBox's upcoming Armor case, in that it's not waterproof. But it will float to the surface, for whatever good that does you.


    mentalKase foam iPhone cae 4 4S The outer layer of the mentalKase converts to a desktop iPhone stand

     


    There are some nice features to the mentalKase, however. You can use it with your phone's screen out or flipped in, for extra protection. And the outer layer can be removed and converted into an iPhone desktop stand.


    Also, the MCRF material used for the outer is anti-microbial. But, just as we feel it's a bit of an exaggeration to try and protect your phone lest it fall off a roof, we also think it's a little phobic to need a sterile case. Really, has your phone case ever given you a cold?


    Over all, the mentalKase looks like a pretty decent product, and seems to deliver on what it promises. So, in that sense, it's not really going overboard if you happen to need a massive, germ-resistant iPhone case that can survive a game of "toss that phone" and can float like a fishing bobber.


    But if you're looking for everyday use, we'd probably recommend a more streamlined case with a slightly lower level of shock absorption, something that'll actually fit in your pocket.


    Still, it just goes to show that, for every person and every lifestyle, there's an iPhone accessory out that's just right.

  • Incipo Stanley iPhone 5 cases


    Your iPhone's just another tool, right? Well, with their line of Stanley cases for iPhone 5, Incipio has taken that pretty literally. The cell phone accessories maker has paired with tool manufacturer Stanley for this collection of tough, professional-grade carrying cases and covers designed to for the jobsite.


    We've reviewed a lot of cell phone accessories in the past, but this is the first time we've ever seen a line of cases specifically geared for some of the toughest trades out there.


    New at Pure Mobile, the Stanley line will certainly look at home next to the rest of your tools, with models in classic construction colors like black and yellow (though they're also available in more subtle tones like black and grey, or even black and pink, for the ladies.)


    Incipio Stanley Foreman case for iPhone 5 Incipio's Stanley Foreman case for iPhone 5 in Black and Yellow

     


    And whatever your job throws at you, there's a Stanley case that can handle it. Models like  Dozer are extra-rugged, with a plextonium under-layer, shock-absorbing silicone outer, and screen protector. The Dozer even goes so far as to provide camera and button protectors that can be closed to keep dust and dirt out.


    But different tasks require different levels of protection. And while models like the Highwire, Technician, and Foreman also use a combination of plextonium and either silicone or NGP in their multi-layer construction, each is tailor-made to suit the task at hand.


    For a sleeker, slimmer look that's still up to par, we'd recommend the Foreman. While it's impact resistant, with a plextonium bumper and easy-to-grip silicone core, it's got a bit of a lower profile than styles like the Highwire or Dozer, which really do look like something you'd hang from your toolbelt.


    But whatever the style for you, Incipio's Stanley line is definitely at the top of a very short list of iPhone 5 accessories we'd actually trust at a construction site.

  • Audojo iPad case gaming


    Love gaming and love your iPad, but don't love gaming on your iPad? A new concept in iPad accessories, launched just this week on Kickstarter, is looking to bring your two great loves together, with a carrying case designed specifically for gaming and gamers.


    Engadget reported yesterday on the latest idea from Audojo, a case that supplies what most gamers find lacking when playing on their tablet – physical controls.


    The case, which is compatible with iPad 2 or higher, closes around the ends of your iPad, giving you two analog joysticks, shoulder buttons, and stereo speakers.Meanwhile, the rest of your tablet is left free, so you can use your camera or any of your tablet's buttons without hassle.


    There are, of course, other gaming controllers for iPad out there. But how Audojo's differs, says Engadget, is that rather than connecting via Bluetooth, it uses a low-latency microphone-based interface.


    hile the case does have a mini-USB connector for charging, it doesn't actually act as a charger for your iPad, which would be cool but would also make the gadget a lot more expensive, so Audojo's decided to keep it simple, for a cheaper, more accessible design.


    This isn't a perfect accessory – yet. Engadget took issue with its prototype, which it said "looks a little clunky since it adds quite a bit of bulk to the iPad's figure," though they also noted that, when you're actually using it, "it's light and well balanced and feels comfortable in hand."


    They also found that the pods for the shoulder buttons, electronics and batteries, housed at the back of the case, are "are currently too wide but Audojo plans to remedy this before production thanks to an improved circuit board layout."


    Audojo's gaming case is far from hitting any store shelves. But if its Kickstarter campaign works out as planned, we should eventually see a slimmer, more refined version of this already pretty cool prototype. And though we're not counting our chickens before they hatch, we have a hunch it could be one of the best iPad accessories yet made for the gaming crowd.

  • PureGear Extrem Case iPhone 4S PureGear's PX360 ExtremeCase for iPhone 4/4S comes with cool built-in features, like bottle opener and wrench

     


    Today's Pure Mobile accessory of the week would make any outdoorsman proud. Basically the Swiss Army Knife of cell phone accessories, PureGear's PX360 ExtremeCase for iPhone 4/4S is more than just an iPhone case, it's also touted as an "extreme protection system."


    Voted by Men's Fitness as the "most functional" on their list of "best cases for your iPhone4/4S" the ExtremeCase offers a crazy level of protection, in an ultra-sporty design. There's no risk of your iPhone unexpectedly coming out of the case if it drops; the ExtremeCase is secured by six screws and acts as a 360-degree shield, witha built-in screen protector.

    But what makes it really great for the rugged, outdoorsy type or active athlete are additional features, like the built-in loop at the top, which comes with a carbiner, so you can secure your phone when you're on the go or when you've set up camp.


    And, aside from the fairly standard kick-stand, PureGear's ExtremeCase offers cool details rarely found in an iPhone case, like a built-in bottle opener and wrench. So even if you're out of service area, your iPhone may just be able to get you out of a sticky situation.

  • When you're listening to your favorite music, you want to hear every nuance, every instrument, every note, every word, and nothing more.


    Unfortunately, even when you're listening with headphones, you often get a lot of unwanted add-ons – your neighbor yelling into the phone, a delivery truck idling down the street, the leaky faucet. Not exactly an ideal music listening experience, is it?


    But today's mobile accessory of the week may just change all that. Designed to give you a superior sound without all the extra noise, ClarityOne's Premium Earbuds actually bring new technology to the table for the truest, most uncluttered audio we've seen – or rather, heard – yet.



    They may appear to be rather small and mild-mannered aluminum earbuds, but ClarityOnes have something no other headphones on the market do – the Patented PureSound Processor, technology that took ClarityOne over 12 years to develop and perfect.


    Most of today's standard headphones, earbuds, and speakers use voice coil or single coil technology, which was originally designed about a century ago for electric motors. the problem, explains ClarityOne, is that "all audio signals that go through a voice coil or a coil crossover is subject to interference. We know of this evil as distortion and loss of harmonics or your sound."


    Instead of coils, ClarityOne earbuds use a different technology based on a coupling unit rather than a crossover. There's a lot of science involved in the explanation, which ClarityOne is happy to walk you through in the Tech section of their website.


    But in short, they promise that their PureSound Processor produces pure, clean, undistorted sound that preserves the original harmonics and quality of all music, with no distortion.


    And even though that promise, on its own, would set their headphones and earbuds a cut above the rest, ClarityOne hasn't stopped there. They've also tended to little details that would improve upon the design of even traditional headphones.


    Each pair of ClarityOne Premium Earbuds come equipped with a lightweight microphone with call-answer and call-end features, as well as a track control feature so you can easily skip through songs.


    The earbuds are also available with three different sizes of custom silicone tips, so you can get a perfect, comfortable fit that also eliminates all outside noise. And their wires are designed to resist tangles, which in the end, improves their lifespan.


    We could probably go on and on, but the best test is probably to try them out, and see how they stack up next to your standard pair of headphones. We doubt you'll be disappointed.

  • There's a reason why Incase consistently ranks as one of our favorite brands for smartphone, tablet and laptop accessories. The company's always thinking up new ways to make our digital lives just a little bit easier, more streamlined, more stylish.


    And this week's Mobile Accessory of the Week zeroes in on the latest collection from this leading label – the Terra line of sleek, uncomplicated carrying cases and sleeves.



    So-called because of the natural woven materials Incase uses to make these laid-back, lightweight traveling cases, the Terra line comes in either a light natural canvass or slick charcoal grey chambray, both of which are as durable as they are attractive.


    Neither too feminine or too masculine, the easy elegance of styles like the Terra Sleeve and Terra Tote is a look that's modern, unpretentious and will pretty much work for anybody



    Incase seems to get the details right. Models like the Terra Tote and Terra Sleeve for Macbook Pro and Macbook Air are logically designed, and simply executed, with the perfect dimensions, and just the right amount of padding and extra storage for safe, easy, and unfussy transport.


    While the Terra laptop sleeve gives you an exterior document pocket, the Terra Tote comes packed with multiple organizers and offers easy access for a no-hassle a day on the go.


    Added touches, like genuine leather toggles on zippers, and additional padding at the bottom for extra laptop protection, are like icing on the cake.
