Gadget Review: ER4XR Headset

Gadget Review: ER4XR Headset

In 1991 Etymotic Research launched the ER4. At that time, the Etymotic ER4 was the world’s first universal Inear monitor and still enjoys a legendary status today. A quarter of a century later Etymotic with ER4SR and ER4XR finally brings the long-awaited successors of the Inear ancestors.

The pair of Inears cost just under 400 € and thus hardly more than the previous models. For current prices, please see the following links you may check online.

The outer packs of the new headset is quite large, which is mainly due to the generously dimensioned zipper case inside the packaging. In addition to the ER4 also packed with the rich accessories. Etymotic gives the Inears 3 pairs of the known triple flanges of silicone, as well as 2 pairs of foam tips. There are also replacement filters for cerumen, the right tool for changing the filter, a shirt clip and an adapter on a 6.3mm jack in the packaging. A nice gimmick is the enclosed Certificate of Performance that is individually issued for each individual Inear, serial numbered and signed. This includes various measurements which guarantee the quality of every ER4. Among other things, there are diagrams of the frequency response and the channel deviation.

ER4XR

The history of the ER4XR

At the beginning of the era in 1991 there available only one version of the ER4. Nevertheless the ER4S joined and the original ER4 was renamed ER4B.

The retrofitted B stands for Binaural – a special recording technique exclusively for the playback via headphones. Unlike conventional material, binaural recordings are usually not equalized for loudspeakers. The ER4B should be able to reproduce these recordings very faithfully. Nowadays, due to the limited distribution of binaural recordings. For conventional recordings, the ER4B simply sounds great.

And that was the impetus for the ER4S. At Etymotic, it has been found that conventional CD recordings usually have an emphasis on high frequencies, which are automatically compensated by loudspeakers during playback. This is how the ER4S, which plays in the high frequency as compared to the ER4B.

 ER4XR _1

Etymotic is a great success: The S-version is still the best-known version of the ER4 and still boasts its achromatic sound reproduction. Drivers used are read within a deviation of less than 1 dB. Of course, tuning the Inears to the most accurate sound reproduction. Etymotic boasts a 92% coverage of the frequency response of the ER4S and the self-determined target. The sound that the ER4S transmits to the eardrum thus corresponds to a great extent to what we are accustomed to by our natural hearing – at least the theory.

In 1994, Etymotic bows the criticism of many customers: The ER4S is too hard to drive for portable use. The ER4P was born, which could be driven more easily by a higher efficiency. A secondary effect was the slight decrease in upper mid and high tone compared to the S variant. Some customers, who the ER4S was too ruthless, the resulting, slightly warmer sound came very much. But here, too, the success of the Inears once again turned out to be a right decision. With the ER4PT, the ER4P subsequently experienced a slight revision, but remained virtually unchanged.

And now, 25 years after the original ER4 – the long-awaited successor: ER4SR and ER4XR.

ER4XR is having the new feature that elongated housing shape of the Inears. This leaves the unusually deep seat in the auditory canal. Certainly, this is not comfortable for everyone, and can be very unpleasant especially on initial contact. Because, like his ancestors, the new etymotic ER4XR sit so deep around the auditory canal that they pass the fleshy part and close in the bony part. And at first this is almost as unpleasant as it can be expected, but it also brings some advantages. One advantage of ER4XR is the resulting high insulation against external noise are also hardly further extended. The downside is obviously nothing as it offers long-term comfort. With some habituation, but that does not present a problem there – really comfortable.

However, the material of the housings is new. Forget the rustic charm of the coarse plastic housing, and say hello to aluminum for the current version ER4XR! A long overdue change, which finally brings the new ER4XR also optically and haptically to its price level. In the course of this Etymotic also decided to send the proprietary 2-pin connection retirement. Instead the new ones put on a nose and groove modified connector on the basis of the MMCX – the use of other cables is however complicated. The good news is that the new cables do not make any cravings change. Qualitatively, the new cables in ER4XR are exceptionally high-quality. In conjunction with the supplied shirt clip, cable noise is no longer a problem; Due to the angle at the cable connection, the cable routing over the ear is somewhat cumbersome.

In 1994, Etymotic bows the criticism of many customers: The ER4S is too hard to drive for portable use. The ER4P was born, which could be driven more easily by a higher efficiency. A secondary effect was the slight decrease in upper mid and high tone compared to the S variant. Some customers, who the ER4S was too ruthless, the resulting, slightly warmer sound came very much soothing. From Etymotic’s perspective, this was rather a necessary to achieve better efficiency. With the ER4PT, the ER4P subsequently experienced a slight revision, but remained virtually unchanged.

And now, 25 years after the original ER4 – the long-awaited successor: ER4SR and ER4XR

Conclusion

25 years have passed since the launch of the original Etymotic ER4XR. 25 years and somehow has everything remained the same? Modified shape, the improved sound quality. Etymotic has already made a statement decades ago, which still exists today with the current version ER4XR. It is therefore all the more pleasing that Etymotic, with the re-release of the classic, only addresses criticisms. What remains is the tried and tested vote, but also the typical deep seat in the ear – the typical etymotic virtues that one can hate or love. Just like Etymotic promises with the current version ER4XR: A classic redefined.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017

The CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2017 comes with the LiveSketch tool. It converts sketches into curves and is intended to revolutionize the vector graphics: single curve points. The future belongs to natural drawing 🙂

The graphics package CorelDraw appears for the first time with the latest 2017 instead of a version number. Manufacturer Corel marks the change of new versions every two years to annual updates with the CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2017.

The Graphics Suite consists of CorelDraw, Photo-Paint, Font Manager, PowerTrace, WebsiteCreator, Connect and Capture. The most important component is the vector plotter CorelDraw.

With the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 for Windows, Corel provides for the first time an application software that supports drawing by artificial intelligence.

The new tool is called LiveSketch and, according to Corel, uses a neural network to intelligently interpret hand drawn strokes. Other highlights of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 include improvements to the workflow and support for the latest technologies, such as print-sensitive input media, the Microsoft Surface Dial and Ultra-HD 5K monitors.

New key features include the newly developed LiveSketch technology, optimizations for input strippers, optimized nodes, draw points and vector previews, a separate tablet mode and the import of working environments from previous program versions

The LiveSketch technology

According to Corel, vector graphics are stuck in the 90s, when the technique gave little more than the imprecise mouse. Creating illustrations on individually set curve points is an anachronistic and comparatively complicated workaround. With the new LiveSketch tool, CorelDraw users will be able to draw vector graphics in a natural way, without having to set up curves for digital work.

From sketches of the Wacom tablet, LiveSketch generates Bezier curves independently. The user determines how many seconds CorelDraw vectorizes the drawing. Until then, he can make several starts for the perfect curve, compose a curve from several partial lines, or make a center line from different lines.

For Wacom pens, CorelDraw now supports tilt, rotation, and orientation, as well as printing. Curved curves can be edited later; Pen characteristics such as tilt and pressure are retained. The pen support up to the 6D pen also extends to Corel Photo-Paint

The LiveSketch technology, developed and patented by Corel, uses the power of a neural network for vector-drawing on pressure-sensitive terminals. Vectordesign is to become as simple as drawing with the pen on paper.

The new tool recognizes different character styles and interprets them. This eliminates the time-consuming on-paper drawing, scanning and vectorizing, as designs can be designed on the screen from the start.

Optimization of input pins

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 makes it easier to achieve natural coloring and coloring by providing enhanced input support. CorelDRAW and PHOTO-PAINT also convert the inclination and rotation of the input pin. PHOTO-PAINT now supports pens and brushes for natural painting and drawing on input devices such as WACOM or Microsoft Surface tablets.

Optimized nodes, drawpoints, and vector previews

The newly designed nodes and draw points can now be handled more quickly and more intuitively. Each node is assigned a unique form to allow users to immediately see if it is a pointed, smoothed, or symmetric node.

Also new are the color adjustment options for previewing and editing the curves. Colors for the knots, draw points and previews are adjustable and stand out clearly from the underlying colors. Clearly visible interactive controls simplify the work with object fillings, transparencies, crossfading, extrusion, shadow and outline.

Own tablet mode

The tablet mode makes it possible to create sketches and make adjustments by fingerprinting or typing. To maximize the size of the drawing window, only the most frequently used tools and commands appear in the new touch workspace. CorelDRAW and PHOTO-PAINT automatically switch to Touch mode as soon as a 2-in-1 device is used as a tablet.

Import of working environments from previous program versions

The CorelDRAW Graphics Suite offers many ways to customize the interface, including keyboard shortcuts. Workspaces from versions since X6 can also be imported.

Greetings to Microsoft and Adobe

The update provides support for Windows 10 including Ultra-Hi-DPI screens up to 8K as well as for the Microsoft Surface Dial, but remains compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. When you detach the keyboard from a hybrid device, CorelDraw automatically switches to a workspace optimized for touch operation.

CorelDraw can also use Adobe color management when programs from both manufacturers are installed on the same computer. Import and export filters are also available for PSD, AI PDF, EPS and other formats

Components of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017

In addition to CorelDRAW 2017, the vector illustration and page layout application, and the PHOTO-PAINT 2017 image processing program, the following content, programs, and auxiliary applications are included:

The font management program Corel Font Manager 2017

The Corel PowerTRACE 2017 vectoring tool embedded in CorelDRAW

The full-page browser Corel CONNECT 2017

The screenshot tool Corel CAPTURE 2017

The Corel Website Creator for creating, setting up and managing websites

The development environment Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications 7.1 for the automation and control of devices

The PhotoZoom Pro 4 plug-in that allows you to export and enlarge digital images from Corel PHOTO-PAINT

2,000 high-resolution digital photos

10,000 clipart and digital images

More than 1,000 TrueType or OpenType fonts

350 templates, 2,000 vehicle templates

More than 500 interactive frames and picture frames, more than 600 color traces as well as vector and bitmap fillings

New training videos (total duration over five hours)

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 runs on Windows 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit editions) with the latest service packs. It requires an Intel Core i3 / 5/7 or AMD Athlon 64, 2 GB of RAM, 1 GB of hard disk space, a multitouch screen, mouse or tablet and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6

The CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017 will be available on www.coreldraw.com is available now. The versions are getting delivered in boxes from 18 April 2017. The full version costs 699 euros, the upgrade 349 euros. All previous versions (except for Academic, NFR and OEM) entitle to upgrade. The CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X8 allows you to purchase a re-upgraded version.

In addition to the purchase versions, Corel also offers an annual subscription for 239.40 euros.

Google Wallpaper Adds New ‘Art’ and ‘Solid Colors’ Categories

Google Wallpaper Adds New ‘Art’ and ‘Solid Colors’ Categories

Google Wallpaper: Many new Wallpaper images and two new categories ‘Art’ and ‘Solid Color’

When the pixel smartphones came onto the market in the fall of last year, the pre-installed Google wallpaper and the app for changing the pictures was become very popular. Probably also Google has the app shortly afterwards in the play store outsourced and for all users to the released downloads. Now the app has got a big update with many new Google wallpapers and two new categories.

There are a lot of wallpaper collections in the Play Store, but most of them consist only of a collection of countless images with more or less good quality. Google’s app, on the other hand, offers a range of high-quality and selected background images, sorted by categories. From there, you can partly display information about the picture and also make it directly from the app as a background image on the smartphone.

The selection is huge, growing more and more. If you like, you can set the Google wallpapers at fixed intervals. Thus there is always variety on the wallpapers offered. In addition, users who already have Android can also use their app to pimp their screen.

Very recently, the app has received a major update that has brought new Google wallpaper in many categories. An exact list of Google is not available, so you can simply open the app again and search for new matching works. Since few days ago, there was now another update on the server side, which also brings two completely new categories filled with many more pictures.

The first category in Google Wallpaper is called “art” and contains corresponding artworks or Google wallpaper inspired by works of art. In fact, at first sight, you can get the impression that these are real masterpieces – even if probably Google’s designer or guest designer hand. The second category is called “Solid Colors” and contains simply backgrounds consisting of a single color. If you want to adapt your smartphone minimalist, here is exactly the right thing. There are all basic colors in different gradations.

Google may have released the update to version 1.1 so that new Google wallpaper can be executed directly on the server side and brought to the app – because otherwise you can not explain that just days after the update, new categories and new pictures Pop up. Unfortunately, there is no official announcement and no change log, so it can always be worthwhile to open the app. 🙂

In the individual categories there is also the possibility to get a new Google wallpaper from this category daily. Unfortunately, there is still no chance to be surprised every day by a new wallpaper from all categories.

Google has brought some partners into the bottom line for this project to make a large selection available. The update has already been completed for a few days and should now have arrived with all users. If you are still on version 1.0, the app can also download directly at APK Mirror and either install or reinstall it over the existing one.

iPad 2017 Gadget Review: The Ideal Tablet – If You Need an Upgrade

iPad 2017 Gadget Review: The Ideal Tablet – If You Need an Upgrade

Apple’s Finest Tablet iPad Air

Way back in 2013, Apple completed the tablet when it had released the iPad Air and introduced a thinner, lighter design with a more compact body together with fingerprint sensor in its tablet. It was then considered as the Apple’s finest tablet.

Not much has been changed since then and the iPad Pro introduced in 2015 developed a new line for specialized users though the consumer grade device had not been updated for around two and half years. iPad sales seem to have fallen for some time now and users have not improved as they should with iPhones.

Several users still tend to be using the iPad 2 and 3 that does not run iOS 10, which is the latest operating system of Apple. Moreover the next version of iOS would probably drop the assistance for 32- bit apps thus making the iPad 5 out-dated.  This would mean that the new features together with security updates have not been done to most of the iPad users.

Apple’s new iPad, which had been announced three weeks back with much display, does not tend to have much by way of new features.  On the contrary it is being pitched as the appropriate upgrade for users of tabs which are four, five or six years old.

iPad_2

Slightly Thicker Chassis Same as Original iPad Air

The latest one at £339 is £40 cheaper than its forerunner that Apple expects would attract consumers in upgrading. The 9.7-inch screen is said to be much brighter about 500 nits in contrast to the Air 2’s 400, though the difference is not much noticeable.  Besides this is also a bit thicker than the Air 2 at 7.5 mm to the 6.1 mm of its waif-life precursor which shows a bit of cost-cutting from the point of view of cutting the price down for Apple.

However it has a marginal difference. The slightly thicker chassis tends to be the same as the original iPad Air and if the user is looking for a case other than the snap-on cover of Apple, then they should make a note of this.

The other variance is the A-9 chip of Apple which gives a performance upgrade on the A8 in the case of iPad Air 2.  This means that it would possibility have updates of iOS software for one year longer.

Taking into consideration that people seem to hold on to their tabs for few years, this seems to be an essential alteration.

Missed Some of the Features of iPad Pro

The 1.2 megapixel selfie camera and the 8-megapixel camera has not changed since the only thing is camera could be useful is for video calls. None of them seem to have the 10-hour battery life which Apple has claimed and that the latest one functions flawlessly.

The new tab seems to have missed out on some of the features of the iPad Pro.  The new tab is said to be everything which a tablets may require.  It has a great screen, with long battery life together with abundantly power. As in the case of the last two iPads, it had the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that not only tends to get unlock but is also being utilised more for payments.  Priced at £339, its price cut has been the most noticeable factor and not many essential changes have taken place in the new iPad.
