[News] New pod(s) coming soon!

Greetings fellow tech seekers!  Just a quick word that we may have as many as two new podcasts incoming, wherein we discuss our thoughts on the OnePlus 3 device, and then move to the startling news that Verizon has agreed to acquire Yahoo for a lot of money.

We'll explore whether you should consider buying the OnePlus 3 as well as what Verizon might be up to by spending billions with a "b" of dollars to make Yahoo a part of their organization.  Both should be up in the next few days, so keep an ear out for those.

As always, if you readers have a topic you'd like us to discuss, feel free to leave a comment or shoot us an email to silicontheory@gmail.com - thanks for checking us out!

[Review] Beats Studio Wireless Headphones

As some of you may or may not know, I'm a bit of a music lover.  I wouldn't say "music snob" since that implies I have massive lossless file libraries, and I wouldn't say "music aficionado" since that implies I have a huge home stereo DAC and amplifier system (and neither of these things are true)  But I do love music, of all genres, and I have owned several pairs of in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear headphones in my day.  I currently use the V-Moda M100s as my headphone of choice, and they are terrific.  Built like a tank, and with a fun sound profile for modern bass heavy music, they are a joy to listen to.  But that's a review for another day...

While the M100s are great, they are a wired set.  I was looking for something in the way of a bluetooth wireless pair, and armed with a bunch of Best Buy credit, off I went.  I was trying to decide between the Bose set, and the Beats Studio Wireless.  If you read the title of this article, you already knew which direction I went.  Read on to find out why.
