    I’ve had a stiff neck for years and after trying a standing desk, it improved though not significantly. I realized that with the amount of time I spend at my desk, things need to be just right, ergonomically, to put this health issue to bed. That’s where this guy comes in.

    After an extensive search, I’ve found it’s the only product out there that provides levels of adjustment. Everything else out there seems to be a one-height-fits-all approach. On top of that, they all don’t support much weight and most are built poorly.

    Not only does this let you set your iMac/Cinema Display at the perfect height (I’m 5’11″ and have it at the third notch from the top), but it’s built incredibly well with a great eye for detail and it works really well, aesthetically, with the Apple ecosystem.

    I went back and forth before purchasing this, as it looked quite large and I was afraid it would take away from the otherwise minimal presence of the display, however I’m happy to report that it’s much better than I thought.

    BOTTOM LINE: There’s no better product out there for this need, it’s very reasonably priced, well built, and if you’re thinking about buying it, don’t think much longer – you’ll be glad you did!

    At 6’4″, sitting in my adjustable desk chair at a height to try to keep my hips higher than my knees, the built-height of my iMac 21.5″ puts the screen well below the optimum line of sight height. The HiRise is easy to assemble, and offers just the rise in base height that I need to get the screen positioned where I desire. The construction is sturdy, easy to place the shelf inside the cabinet and the space below the shelf gives a handy storage spot for my external disk and Thunderbolt cable behind the removable front cover. If it was lower priced it would have been perfect, but it’s the best choice I’ve found.

    I’m not gonna say this is one of the essential accessories for the iPad but if you do decide to purchase one, you’ll be glad that you did. Mainly, HiRise for iMac is used to elevate the iMac a few inches. For most, this is probably unnecessary. The main reason why I bought this was because i have this chair in front of my iMac and when I use my Apple remote, it blocks the signal path of the remote. Rather than constantly having to move my chair away and back, the HiRise came in pretty handy. Besides that, it’s sturdy construction and the availability of a concealed storage space all came in handy. It’s not essential, but it sure made me a bit happier.

    Although “earbuds” (in reference to headphones) are a general classification, I consider there to be two different types of earbuds. The first are earbud heaphones that just fit just over your ear canal where the speaker is just on top of the canal. The second type of earbud headphones are the noise isolating type where the actual speaker is inserted into the ear canal with a surrounding foam or rubber tip that serves 2 functions. The first is a slight pressure to allow it to stay in place and the second is to seal the ear and isolate noise (both from the headphone & outside) at the same time. These JBuds J6 by JLab are the latter type (noise isolating).

    Practically, all earbuds with the canal tips are considered noise isolating to a certain degree. Noise-isolating (in-ear) phones use a passive system, simply sealing the ear. To the 30db or so reduction in all outside noise this alone provides, sound is enhanced by being sent directly into the ear. The ratio of music to outside noise in the ear is, therefore, extremely high. They need no batteries, are lightweight and compact.

    Specifically for those of you that have been shopping around, you probably noticed that JLab actually makes 8 different types of JBuds and may be confused on what the heck the differences are between all of them… Truth be told, there are actually slight differences between all of them. With the exception of the BOQARI Q1 JLab line, all of them have an OPTION of having a mic built-in for those of you that are using them with your phone/smartphone. The addition of a mic typically adds $10 to the MSRP but the price on Amazon varies (for example the J6 model with the mic is $12 more than the one without on Amazon JBuds J6 High Fidelity Ergonomic Earbuds-style Headphones (Nero Black)
    vs JBuds J6M High Fidelity Ergonomic Earbuds-style Headphones with Microphone (Nero Black)).

    ** JBuds JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing Ear Buds (Black) – These are the base model version of JBuds. They MSRP for $49.95 but can be had for $10… which to me means they aren’t any better than anoother standard pair of noise isolating earbuds.
    ** JBuds J2 JBuds J2 Premium Hi-Fi Noise-Isolating Earbuds -Onyx Black – MSRP $79.99 but $14.95 on Amazon. These were considered JLab’s best selling earbuds for a while until they released the J5. The J2 was created to be better than the stock earbuds that typically come with portable audio devices, but included noise isolation, higher durability, and better sound. Due to the size, you had pretty good power.
    ** JBuds J3 JLab J3 Micro Atomic In-Ear Earphones with Travel Case – Jet Black – MSRP $79.99 but $19.95 on Amazon. Many people compare these to the J2, as they are near the same price but the J3s have some differences. First, it comes with a travel case and are a bit smaller in size. Because of the size reduction, you get a smaller driver which doesn’t have as good of a range and lacks bass response in comparison. But still, some people prefer these over the J2s.
    ** JBuds J4 JBuds J4 Rugged Metal In-Ear Earbuds Style Headphones with Travel Case (Obsidian Black) – MSRP $89.95 / $33.40 on Amazon. So you may be thinking, for nearly double the price, are these headphones 2x better than the J2s or J3? Not really, but these are still decent earbuds that come with a travel case. The J4 was created with durability in mind: the buds are made of metal, the cords and molding are thicker. At the same time, the J4 becomes a little bulkier but with size, you get a slightly bigger drive that combines the punchiness from the J2s and the nice clarity of the J3s.
    ** JBuds J5 JBuds J5 Earbuds-style Metal Headphones for iPod, iPad, Tablet, Kindle (Black Pearl) – MSRP $59.95 / $29.95 on Amazon. The J5 marks the 5th model of the JBuds line and although there’s a $30 price drop compared to its siblings in the JBuds line, the J5 takes a little bit of everything from the previous versions and combines them…

    Good quality pair of buds, January 4, 2012
    By 
    Amazon Verified Purchase(http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/amazon-verified-purchase/185-1286238-3677165', ‘AmazonHelp’, ‘width=400,height=500,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,toolbar=0,status=1′);return false; “>What’s this?)

    I had been shopping around for a good pair of in ear headphones for a few weeks when these went on sale. Let me break down my overall experience.

    The packaging was very simple and easy to get my buds out of.

    This set came with a rather large assortment of tips. After trying a few out, the medium sized single flange ones gave the best fit for my ears.

    It also came with a very nice leather pouch to store the buds tangle free.
    I have not used the included clip so I am not sure on its effectiveness.

    I was immediately surprised by how comfortable these buds are. Hands down best ones I have owned. (I normally shop in the 20-25 dollar range though) I listened to music for around 4 hours strait and kept on forgetting I had them in my ears. They are also very low lying so I can rest my head on the pillow without it bothering me.

    The cord stays about 95 percent untangled even without the case. However, the 2 separate lines for the headphones sometimes like to twist around each other. I just let them hang from the other end and it unwraps.

    Probably my favorite thing though is the bass on these buds. (after I found the correct tip)

    For 30 dollars these where a steal, and miles ahead of any bud I have ever owned. However, I can’t really compare them to the $50 price range of buds. I would still recommend these though as I have been super happy with them.

    Good earbuds for the price., February 5, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/amazon-verified-purchase/185-1286238-3677165', ‘AmazonHelp’, ‘width=400,height=500,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,toolbar=0,status=1′);return false; “>What’s this?)

    This is the 3rd set of earbuds I have owned. They sound as good as more expensive sets. They come with a lot of different sized and shaped inner ear cushions, which is very nice. The cord is a nice length and made out of supple rubber material. They rest in my ear well. I loop them over and around the back of my ear. That gives 2 benefits. It cuts down on sound traveling into my ear from the cord rubbing or touching things (like even my shirt), and it helps the buds stay in my ear better. I got the silver and like the color. One thing I noticed that may be a downside for some – I don’t see the buds marked left/right. If they are marked I haven’t found it. Course, I don’t see that as a big deal. It doesn’t matter to me.

    Update – the left and right are marked. On what I consider the underside.

    Update – My wife washed my buds after I left them in my running shorts. My bad. They also got dried in our gas dryer. I figured they were ruined, but they sound just as good as they did before the mishap. :-) Maybe my hearing isn’t the best are they are a very durable set of buds.
