Atlas Carbon Headphones: Compact Design And Clean Sound For The Budget-Conscious Audiophile #BlackFriday [Deals]
I’ve had a chance to test a number of headphones throughout the past year, and have grown more fond of the more traditional “over-ear” headphones during that time. As a regular podcaster – and as the person who edits those podcasts – having little to no bleed from outside sources has become increasingly important.
That said, I don’t want to spend a fortune on headphones, either. I want decent sound quality, the ability to wear them for a couple of hours comfortably, and compact portability. The Atlas Carbon Headphones by MEElectronics offer all three, which is rare. I was provided with a set to put through the paces, and was very happy with the results. (And Cult of Mac Deals just so happens to have the Atlas Carbon Headphones for 35% off the regular price – just $65 – during a very limited time offer. This promotion, however, is available only to continental USA customers.)

Summer may be over in our part of the world, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Sure, the days at the beach and camping in the woods are gone (for now), but there are plenty of other ways to take a much-needed break and have fun at the same time.

I remember when my mother used to drive around with a relatively new invention back in my childhood: a notepad that was use a suction cup mechanism to stick to the windshield of the car. She was a realtor, so she liked to have something easily accessible so she could make notes without having to fumble for a piece of paper and pen (which was also attached to the mechanism).
While this device wouldn’t have been practical for me (I’m left-handed), I’ve found in recent years that I am using my iPhone in my car for things like its GPS capabilities, to stream Rdio through my car stereo, and have my task manager at the ready for when I’m running errands. That’s why the GripGo Universal Car Mount is really appealing to me – and Cult of Mac Deals is currently offering it for just $13.99.
Coding seems incredibly complicated – and many aspects of it are. And when you decide you’re going to start to try to learn to do it, figuring out where to begin can be just as complicated. Whether you’re trying to figure out what platform you’ll use, whether you’ll take on a self-paced course or one you are scheduled to attend, or what type of code matters most to you first, there are plenty of choices to make before you even get started.
This Cult of Mac Deals offer takes the guesswork out of the equation. Why? Because we’re offering The Coding For Beginners Video Course for only $69 – a savings of 88% – for a limited time.
I write a lot on my iPad. I love the distraction-free atmosphere provides and the portability of the platform. I have written a ton of blog posts on the iPad, and wrote the majority of my book using the device as well. That said, it’s tough to write regularly on the iPad without a keyboard. And it’s even tougher to find a keyboard that doesn’t adda ton of bulk to the device at a price that’s easy to swallow.
That’s why the Touchfire appeals to me, and Cult of Mac Deals has it available for only $34.99 during this limited time offer.
