Altec Lansing AHP112 stereo earphones review

Sort of a review anyway..

I picked these up over at ThingFling.com for about $15 for two pairs, you can still altec (10) find them online several places, but I believe they are officially discontinued by Altec Lansing.. at least I couldn’t find them on their website.

Here’s a bit about them:

Altec AHP112

The Altec AHP112 is stereo earphones that are ideal for MP3 & CD players, Portable cassette players, video gaming systems and multimedia computers

-15mm high power neodymium drivers deliver full, rich sound
-Connection: 3.5mm plug
-Frequency Response: 85Hz – 20kHz
-Impedance: 32ohms
-Compact design for comfort and easy portability
-Protective winding case for ultimate convenience

Warranty:2 years

So they come in a hard plastic sealed case that you’ve got to cut open, a pain altec really to get them open, worse than the standard sealed clamshell boxes.. They’ve got the specs and features listed on the back and you can see the headphones and their case through the front of the package.



altec (7) The case is actually very nice, it holds the headphones tightly and protects them, you can use the case to wind the cord up for quick and easy storage.




It opens from the top allowing you access to the headphones, and it locks shut altec (9) tightly so they won’t fall out.





altec (11) Overall the AHP112 headphones are very nice, they seem well made, I got them because it was a great deal and my wife likes these types of headphones. I personally prefer the in-ear style than these..



The sound quality is decent, especially if you consider the price I paid, but even if altec (12) they weren’t that cheap and I was looking for a set of headphones I’d consider these. Altec Lansing is a good brand, I’ve had good experiences with their products, and they’re very well known for quality audio goods. The sound is not wonderful, but it’s surprisingly good for a set of low cost ear buds.



I like than and will use them as a spare set if need be, my wife is happy with them, especially the included carry case, she doesn’t have to worry about them getting tangled up etc now.

Transferring DVDs and Video to Cellphones..

So if anyone is interested I’ve got a series going on over at TiltMobility.com where DSCF2275 I’m checking out and reviewing several programs that allow you to transfer DVDs and other types of video to a format that will work on your cellphone. Obviously by the name of the site it’s focused on the ATT Tilt or HTC TyTn II, but these programs will convert videos to any phone format actually.

Some of the programs are actually for converting to any format at all so it’s not just for mobile, you can take a DVD and rip to standard AVI or Divx if you wish.

Some of the are a waste of money and some are very good and work very well, but that’s the whole point of the series, to figure out which programs work and which ones don’t, or which ones work better than others…

Today I’ve just posted my review of Extra Video Converter which can be found HERE

Most of the programs are from my own personal collection, but a couple of them are actually ‘official’ review versions that I received for review.

Here’s a list of the ones I’ve already looked at, and I’ve got many more to go…

Extra Video Converter

Extra DVD Ripper Express

Aplus DVD Ripper Professional

Xilisoft DVD Ripper Ultimate

SPB Mobile DVD

Oh, well that’s it for today… enjoy!
