Review of ATH-S100 Headphones from Audio Technica

Leave a Comment
As shown in the picture below, We’ll be talking about the ATH-S100 from the ‘Audio Technica’ which is a well known Japanese brand for manufacturing and selling Headphones and Audio devices. At a price of Rs 1,699 officially and available for below Rs. 1000 if you look around, the ATH-S100 is one of company’s most affordable pair of on-ear headphones.

As per the review till date, the ATH-S100 is delivering a decent quality sound which is worthy of it’s price. As per the recent reviews, the ‘Audio Technica’ company’s products are found to be durable and good performing devices and good build quality.

On-Ear Design makes device lighter and smaller
With the on-ear design of the ATH-S100, the device will rest on your ears as compared to on-head headphones that rest entirely on the head. Therefore, the device ATH-S100 is small and light weight and easy to carry for frequent travelers who like to hear music while on journey.

Comfortability, Specifications and Design
Although the ATH-S100 is company’s economical pair of on-ear headphones at price of Rs 1,699 , the device is not as comfortable worthy of it’s price. Hence, the strong clamping force offsets the comfort of soft pads which we get from ATH-S100 and making  it difficult for users to wear the on-ear headphone continuously for more than 30 minutes.

Features
The ATH-S100 headphones are light and portable with a plastic body and earcups that swivel 90 degrees (allowing rotation)
The Audio Technica ATH-S100 has 36mm drivers, with a sensitivity rating of 104dB, impedance of 32Ohms, and a frequency response range of 15-22,000Hz
Feel the comfort with  good quality soft pads on the headphones
While purchasing we get a  3.5mm plug without accessories
You can use the 1.2m cable while playing the headphones with an audio player in your trouser pocket
The microphone is missing and so is the in-line remote to take calls and control music playback. Hence, we need to shell out more money is order to buy a headset with such features
The colours available are white and black but as the white colour device could get dirtier quickly, it is feasible to go for the black on-ear headphone

Overall Performance
The Overall performance of the ATH-S-100 is good and is a fair deal at a price of Rs 1,699. Moreover, the detailing and separation are good enough and as of now, we don’t find anything better at this price.

Another good thing is the clean sound and decent sub-bass levels.Unfortunately, the strong clamp pressure reduces the comfort level of soft pads and Its plasticky body feels flimsy. If you need a pair of headphones with a mic and inline remote, you can choose the Audio Technica ATH-S100IS instead, which retails for around Rs. 1,500 in the market.

Flying Cars: The Reality of The Future

Leave a Comment
A flying car may be a personal vehicle that gives door-to-door aerial transportation and is the dream of many people and making it come true, the goal of many automotive companies. Fulfillment of this goal is being tried by surprising number of small companies. The term "flying car" has been associated with both roadable craft as well as hovercars.

The flying automotive has been pictured in works of fantasy like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets, The Jetsons, Star Wars, Blade Runner and also similarly bewildered human imagination in technology magazines like Popular Science and Popular Mechanics.
Flying Cars: The Reality Of The Future
In 1940, industrialist Ford magnificently predicted: "Mark my word: a combination airplane and motorcar is coming. You may smile, but it will come.”

In 1956, Ford's Advanced Design studio came up with the Volante Tri-Athodyne, a 3/8 scale construct automotive model.it absolutely was designed to possess 3 ducted fans, each of which was equipped with a motor, that will raise it off the bottom and carry it in air.

In 1957, Popular Mechanics according that Hiller Helicopters is developing a ducted-fan craft that can be flown more easily than helicopters, and may cost considerably lesser. Experts speculate that in coming decade a four-place fan would value even more than a smart automotive.

Hiller engineers forsee that this kind of an aircraft would generate a chronology of related personal flying vehicles being used for variable specialized purposes.

In 1956, the United States Army's Transportation Research Command wanted to investigate into the possibilities of developing 'flying jeeps' . They toyed with the idea of making a ducted-fan-based craft that would be much smaller in size, more automated and easier to handle on flight than conventional helicopters. In 1957, Chrysler, Curtiss-Wright, and Piasecki were appointed in contracts for manufacturing and supplying of these prototypes.
All of them came up with their prototypes, but Piasecki's VZ-8 was the foremost flourishing and was well-accepted. It could work ordinarily near the ground level, but would astonishingly take -off and fly up to many thousands of feet, and showed great promise and resilience on the wing.

Uptil now, the most advanced world's flying automotive has been built up by the Slovakian company AeroMobil. Its latest model AeroMobil 3.0, a flying automotive that completely makes use of existing infrastructure created for cars and planes, and has re-emerged with the possibilities of real door-to-door travel.

Not withstanding the technical difficulties to actually engineer a flying car Urban Aeronautics' has come up with X-Hawk that is envisioned to be a VTOL turbojet battery-powered craft declared in 2006. The designers wanted to create a military and rescue operations vehicle that could be operated like tandem rotor helicopter but with ducted fans in place of exposed rotors.

The Moller Skycar M400 another personal VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) craft that is battery-powered by four pairs of in-tandem Wankel rotary engines, and is proposed to deal with the issues of satellite-navigation that are included in the 'Small Aircraft Transportation System'.

Moller had previously stated that the Skycar could only take-off from airports or helipads but has also claims its product to the only feasible and affordable option.

The Xplorair PX200 designed under a French project of developing a single-seater VTOL craft lacking a rotating airfoil not rotating device, wishing on the Coandă impact that relies on an array of light jet engines that are basically thermoreactors embedded at intervals tiltwings' body.

On May 7, 2013, Terrafugia  brought up the TF-X, a plug-in hybrid tilt-rotor vehicle that might be the primary totally autonomous flying automotive.The prototype is equipped with rechargeable batteries that render the craft a range of 500 miles in each flight after a complete fill.

So, the future is full of the possibility of birth of a flying very soon as it can be seen that numerous automotive manufacturing units are just so seriously gestating with the idea of 'A Flying Car'. As per source aflyingcars.com, the first Flying Car is due to launch somewhere between 2017 - 2018.
