Freakin' Friday! Audio-Technica Headphones

audiotechnica.jpg

Those looking for a reasonably priced pair of headphones can look no further than Audio-Technica's closed-back dynamic Professional Headphones. We bought the ATH-M30 for less than $42.00 when we needed a pair that would have decent sound at very little cost. The 'phones manage to block a lot of exterior sound while capturing both treble and bass nuances. With a 20-20,000 Hz frequency response and an impedance of 65 ohms, they have a very comfortable fit, are lightweight and have a flexible 11 ft. cable. We wanted a 3.5mm connection and it also comes with a ΒΌ" adapter.

Netflix to Add 100% Close-Captioning

netflixclosecapt.jpg

Netflix has reached a settlement with the National Association for the Deaf so all of its movies and TV shows must have closed captioning by 2014. As of today only about 85% of their content has it. Last June, a federal judge found that online sources are also subject to the Americans with Disabilities act. So it is only logical that it would apply here as well. This means that Amazon, Hulu, iTunes and other online streaming services will also have to comply.
