I may be an overly discriminating audiophile with a recording studio, and listens to $5000 speaker systems, but I'm not overly impressed in these earbuds. They just don't sound flat, with a peak in the 150-200 Hz range. They are better than the previous earbuds that Apple had. My favorite headphones are the Beyerdynamic DT770's, though they aren't made for the iPhones. Bose Quiet Comfort 15's aren't bad. I must admit that I haven't tried many earbuds. Any other thoughts or suggestions?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments?
