Nakamichi Shockwave Bluetooth Speaker and NK Bluetooth Headphones

After about 15 years away, Japanese consumer electronics company Nakamichi (founded in 1948 by Etsuro Nakamichi) has re-entered the U.S. retail market with some new audio gear that aims to challenge competing brands like Beats by Dre, Monster, and Bose. Available now at Sears, K-Mart, and on Amazon, Nakamichi's new Bluetooth headphones and Shockwave desktop speaker are competitively priced at about $68 and $55, respectively. These are quality products that offer an excellent user experience at a very budget-friendly price.

The Shockwave Bluetooth Speaker is great portable stereo speaker for the desktop that provides wireless music via Bluetooth from up to 30 feet away, as well as a wireless speakerphone with built-in microphone for taking phone calls over Bluetooth. Pairing this speaker up with both my iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 smartphones was a breeze, and you can also connect the included stereo cable to the speaker and play music from any device with a headphone jack/aux output.

Don't let the size of this Bluetooth speaker fool you, Nakamichi has done a good job of packing it with surprisingly rich sound and impressive bass for a stereo speaker this small. While you can control it all from your smartphone, the speaker itself also has Volume, Bluetooth Pairing and phone call pick up buttons located on one end of the device. I found myself enjoying this wireless speaker in several rooms around the house, but I might just be the life of the party next summer when I hit all of the cookouts and garden parties with this baby. Also included in the box is a USB power adapter/USB cable to recharge battery, and user manual.

Nakamichi Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Headphones Suggested Price: $55.99

In the past few years, Beats By Dr. Dre headphones have won the popularity contest among many young people, although they are way over-priced in most cases. These new Nakamichi Bluetooth headphones are looking to get in on the action, and while they are not as colorful as the Beats, the excellent price-point, sleek style, and high-quality wireless listening experience of these Nakamichi's should win you over. Once again, pairing these up to a smartphone or PC via Bluetooth is a no-brainer and switching between music and phone calls is made simple with easy-to-tap on-ear buttons which also let you switch tracks and control volume.
 
These Nakamichi headphones are light-weight and extremely comfortable with a padded headband and flexible ear cups that sit nicely on your ears no matter what position your head is in. As they deliver up to 8 hours of battery life after a 2 hour charge, you might find yourself using these to watch movies in bed, immersed in quality stereo sound enhanced by "super bass", or walking around the house doing chores since they work from up to 33 feet away from your paired-up Bluetooth device. These days, I've also been enjoying taking walks in the bitter-cold New York City streets and parks, with these headphones keeping my ears warm and musically satisfied. In the box packaged with the headphones you'll find a user manual, a cloth carrying case, and a USB cable for charging the Lithium battery.
