From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
Now that your jaw is on the floor or you are giggling like a 5 year old school girl, let me introduce you to Outdoor Tech’s Privates. If your are trying to figure out why the company called them Privates, it’s possible the old school military style is the inspiration for the name. What’s really great about this pair of headphones is that you can score a quality set of professional Bluetooth headphones for only $99.95.
One feature that really sets these headphones apart from the competition is the touch controls on the right headphone. You literally slide your finger up or down to control the volume and left or right to switch between tracks. No need to worry about fumbling with your phone to change volume or songs anymore! Although the Privates actually come with a 3.55 audio cable for listening to a wired source, the true beauty of these headphones come to light when you use the Bluetooth feature. The audio quality of the Privates is crystal clear and you don’t hear a difference between the 3.55 audio cable use or Bluetooth mode. The 40mm drivers make it possible to hear the super crisp mids and solid base tones. (Those fans out there that love low-end bass will enjoy the Privates as it provides a great base sound without having to take it to insane rattling levels some brands do.
Another great feature of these headphones is the fact that they work with your phone to take phone calls! The Privates have a built in microphone, so you are able to take and end your calls with the touch of the multifunction button! (You just has to be connected via Bluetooth) In case you want to see a little more on how these Privates work, check out the hilarious video from Outdoor Tech’s Unofficial Spokesman Frank Harrington
Overall I think the Privates make for an amazing deal for the money. They give you a great clear and balanced sound and come in a variety of colors to suit your style / look, not to mention with a 10 hour play time you will be able to play with your Privates for a very long time! 😉
Disclosure: I was given a pair of Privates by Outdoor Tech to review. I was not compensated additionally for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

What do you think of this idea?
Amazon has already been doing massive amounts of damage to big box retailers and now it’s working on a new system that could be its final knockout punch. The Wall Street Journal reports that Amazon last year was granted a patent for what it describes as “anticipatory shipping” that will look at consumers’ past buying habits and ship products that it thinks they will buy to nearby warehouses in anticipation of their orders. So for instance, if you’ve already bought all five A Song of Ice and Fire books from Amazon, the company will make sure to have the sixth book shipped to a warehouse near you so that when you order it the company can get it to you on the same day.
