Get your FREE @ledisi latest CD, The Truth today only at @BestBuy NYC & get your wristband for her autograph signing this Friday!

#ad: Ascending Butterfly is a member of Best Buy's WOLF Blogger Program and this is a Sponsored Post. Compensation in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or product/services at no or reduced cost has been exchanged, as always, all opinions are my own!

Just thought I'd add some more info to yesterday's post! I visited the Best Buy at 1880 Broadway for a Magnolia at Best Buy Home Theater Demo, at the end of the Demo I was given Ledisi's newest release The Truth, and a wristband that will grant me access to her autograph signing this Friday at the same store!

Her new album is the bomb, here is a video I took during my demo so you can hear not only her new album, but just how good it sounds off those MartinLogan Theos 8" Floor Speakers:

If you stop by today and watch the demo, you leave with a free CD and a wristband that will get you access to the autograph signing this Friday. The CD's are only free today, but you can purchase one at the store before the signing and still get a wristband, but hurry because there will only be 250 wristbands distributed!

I am digging both my new CD and those sweet MartinLogan Theos Speakers! My home theater is due for an upgrade and getting the chance to demo the sound on these speakers in an environment that truly mirrors a home system setup and have experts answer all my questions was super helpful!

Hopefully I get a picture with Ledisi during the Autograph signing later this week, if I do, I will definitely post it here! And you can check out yesterday's post for more detailed info on what is going on Best Buy for March Audio Fest HERE.

My friends at Best Buy sent me the JBL Flip Stereo Speaker and I'm totally digging on this Bluetooth wireless system for smartphones and tablets.

With this little wonder I can get up to 5 hours of playback time with it's built in Li-ion rechargeable battery which connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth-equipped device. It's a big sound, with great portability at a fantastic price! Right now it's $89.95 at Best Buy which is $30 lower than a leading competitor has it, just saying! (With Mother's Day coming up soon, and Dads and Grads month in June, buy it now at the sale price and tuck it away, I can't imagine who wouldn't be excited to get it!)

My Take:

I for one can't get enough when it comes to my Music! My home theatre surround is due for an upgrade and I definitely want a 'Smart TV' for my living room so I'm totally looking forward to checking out the demo at my local store and learning about the latest and greatest in Home Audio!  And I have to admit I'm already nerding out about getting to meeting Ledisi this Friday at my local Best Buy in New York City (1880 Broadway). If you were thinking about any Home Audio Updates, right now is the time to take advantage and do it at a great price!

#ad @BestBuy & @Dyson w/ Holiday Shopping so big I need a new stocking + 2 new coupons for #CyberMonday #BBYHoliday13

#ad: Ascending Butterfly is a member of Best Buy's WOLF Blogger Program and this is a Sponsored Post. Compensation in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or product/services at no or reduced cost has been exchanged, as always, all opinions are my own!

Merry Christmas from your friends at Best Buy

Trust when I tell you I am NOT making a political statement of any kind here, but I have never shopped 'Black Friday'. I hate crowds. I refuse to get trampled for a discount, no matter how great it may be. And I'm not going out shopping on Thanksgiving Day. That day is about being Thankful for my blessings and enjoying them with those I love. I also like sleeping in WAY too much to get up before the sun does on Friday Morning to stand in long lines in the freezing cold. NOT Happening.

That said, I do like my discounts and Cyber Monday is MY day. I get the deals, keep my PJ's on, and knock everyone off my list without leaving the house. (You know so I don't miss the UPS or Fedex Guy!)

Our friends at Best Buy are serving up a little something for everyone, and I do mean everyone, you may just need a bigger or extra stocking to hang by the chimney with care this year! (At least I know I do!)

Got a 'clean freak' on your list? (Are YOU the clean freak perhaps?), Best Buy and Dyson sent over a great reco for those who like their clean with a side of tech/electronics! I have to admit, cleaning, particularly sweeping the super old hardwood floors in my apartment are NOT my favorite thing to do, so this gift idea definitely got me excited, and it really does take a lot to get me excited about chores. I love my tech and tech appliances though!


Dyson - DC44 Animal Digital Slim Bagless Cordless Handheld/Stick Vacuum - Iron/Satin Nickel
You can press directly on this image to purchase the Dyson DC44 at Best Buy!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - The DC44 is a lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner that is engineered for nimble, high-performance cleaning and is perfect for quick pick-ups. - It assembled in a breeze and is really very lightweight which made me very happy. Just note this is NOT meant for you to pick up water or liquids, stick to the dry stuff!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - It gives you a fade-free 20 minute run time on a full charge with NO loss of suction and a full 8 minutes of 'boost' suction!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - It combines anti-static carbon fiber filaments and stiff nylon brushes to tackle dust and dirt on any surface. Making this a thoughtful and fantastic gift for anyone with allergies or anyone who is an asthmatic!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Want to nab it for an extra $100 off? (like DUH!!!!) it's regularly $399 at Best Buy, but they are knocking $100 for Cyber Monday! So you totally have permission to abandon this post, nab yours and then come back! (Seriously, my link will take you straight to it!)

Traveler on your list?

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Tablet 512GB in Dark Titanium
You can press directly on this image to purchase the Microsoft - Surface Pro 2 at Best Buy!icon

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - As a blogger who is always on the go and who travels often, the right tablet is crucial for me, I just can't lug a heavy laptop everywhere, and while they are finally getting a bit lighter, tablets are often the less weighty option, and usually fit way better in a handbag. As you know many don't do flash. For me a tablet needs to have the functionality of a laptop, and work just like my office desktop, and I do mean seamlessly. I got to play with the new Microsoft - Surface Pro 2 at the Engadget NYC Tech Conference, and I've got to admit I'm totally obsessed! Hopefully Santa is reading this as I have been EXTREMELY GOOD this year! I have a funny feeling your traveler will LOVE finding this under the tree! I honestly think that the Microsoft - Surface Pro 2 with 512GB is a Tablet I can grow into, I'm obsessing over the Dark Titanium at Best Buy!

Cellular that works for everyone and saves you $?

Zact Mobile - Samsung Galaxy S III 4G No-Contract Mobile Phone at Best Buy
You can press directly on this image to purchase the Zact Mobile - Samsung Galaxy S III 4G No-Contract Mobile Phone at Best Buy!icon

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I did a full post on how much I love Best Buy's Zact Mobile - Samsung Galaxy S III 4G No-Contract Mobile Phone with the most flexible service plan currently on the market, if you missed that post, check it out HERE

Coupons for Additional Categories on your list!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Me being "The Official #TwitterPartyDJ" on twitter I am always on the lookout for deals in Music and Music Accesories so if you are shopping for a music lover on your list nab 10% off Headphones and Portable Speakers (just note this excludes Beats, Bose and Sony) by entering the code bloggers10off at check out at Best Buy! I reviewed these (you can check out my full review HERE), and I highly recommend these:

Frends Taylor Headphones at Best Buy
You can press directly on this image to purchase the Frends Taylor Headphones at Best Buy!icon

New & HOT in #Audio: Headphones that FLIP to powerful SPEAKERS - FlipsAudio™ #solo2social reviewed by the #TwitterPartyDJ

FlipsAudio, FlipsAudioUSA, Flips, Flip Headphones, #solo2social

What is the soundtrack of your life?

I normally save my question and my call to action and reserve it for the end of my post, but this time it just seemed so fitting for it to go first! I'll bet there is a song that represents major moments of your life, your first dance, prom, wedding and more. 

or maybe you are like me and there is always a running soundtrack in your head.

Have you ever wished you could share that soundtrack in real time? Now, with a simple flip you can! 

How Flips Works:

Just thought I'd share this video produced by Flips so you can see how easy it is to go from 'solo' listening, to 'social' sharing of your music (I'll try to do a Vine or quick video of my own when I get more caught up!):

It's literally that easy!

You can use them like regular headphones for solo listening, or you can charge them (they have a Lithium Ion Battery that is USB recharge-able) and then flip them and use them as you would any portable speaker!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Portable Speakers and Headphones all-in-one! They are lightweight, portable and convenient to use!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Memory Foam Padded Earpiece that is comfortable and if you wear glasses or earrings they don't press them into your head!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - They are compatible with any 3.5 millimeter audio jack which is the standard size on most portable devices including tablets, smart phones, iPods etc.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Comes with Protective Carrying Case

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - If you buy them directly from FlipsAudio, you get free shipping if you buy multiple units in the same order! (So if you have a pal that was looking into these, maybe you can guys can put the order in together and save on the shipping!)


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Of course Lithium Ion has it's Pros as well as Cons, if it's not fully charged you aren't going to get a lot of time when you are in Share mode, on a full charge it will give you 3 hours.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I did notice that it has a bit higher treble than most people are probably used to with standard headphones (probably because it's a Speaker as well as headphones, so you may have to adjust your device's treble settings to get a more 'even' sound.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - For now, the color choices are a bit narrow, All White with Red Accents (which is the color I selected) or All Black with Lime Accents (my fellow Alienware Computer Enthusiasts are going to love that color scheme! But since most of my headphones and earbuds are actually Black like the typical New Yorker I am, I went with white this time around.)

My Take:

Butterflies you all know that I went into headphones kicking and screaming because I have always preferred earbuds. I am an eyeglass wearer and I also wear pierced earrings which makes headphones a pain for me, I can tell you after extended hours of use with these they do NOT hurt my ears or push my eyeglasses or sunglasses or earrings into the side of my head. No Marks, means happy butterfly! I am very happy with the sound as a speaker and as headphones as well. I do have a 'good ear' when it comes to audio so it was hard at first getting used the higher treble capture with these, but I've adjusted my settings and once I did that I found that these really do deliver a quality audio experience across various Musical Genres. I have a very eclectic collection of music (but then again what 'DJ' doesn't?), and despite their bigger profile in my handbag, I have found myself reaching for them all the time (BTW, I love the protective case that comes with these!). They are delivering big price sound that allows you to easily share the beat at a price that won't break the bank. One of the highest ratings I can give with me having a background in music and studios and being a blogger is this 'Would you re-buy them if something went wrong?' and the answer is definitely a re-sounding yes! I of course hope they last a long time (and a long time for me is relative and is WAY different than the average mainstream user) but if I lost them I would re-buy them!

My apologies dear butterflies I was not able to arrange for a giveaway with these this time around, but please visit FlipsAudio on their Social Channels and let them know you saw them reviewed here and would love a giveaway, I'm sure your enthusiasm would help sway 'The-Powers-That-Be' over at FlipsAudio! J

The Official #TwitterPartyDJ Reviews the Voxx International 808 Studio Quality Headphones!

I grew up around DJ's both family and friends, not just weekend enthusiasts, but pros that started off in clubs and many now own their own Audio Production Companies, for my family Music wasn't just entertainment it was always very much business. So when it comes to Audio Products and Accessories I'm pretty picky and I learned early on that labels, names, flash and floss didn't always mean great sound.

I love Music and feel blessed to have grown up in a family that takes it so seriously and also exposed me to such a wide variety of artists and musical genres. Their love of music and sound and what goes behind creating memorable musical moments definitely rubbed off on me, but there is always one place where I differed from the Pro's in my family. I prefer earbuds. That's definitely not a secret to long time readers, but it's still where me and my family members in the industry differ. And they spent years trying to convert me to headphones but they were never successful. I always hated how they 'crushed' my hair (remember how high 80's hair used to be right?), I have always worn eyeglasses and the headphones would press my glasses into my temples which after awhile would hurt and as I live in the Public Transportation Capital of the Planet, New York City, I always hated how headphones drew too  much attention to you. To my fellow individualists, trust me when I tell you that the one place you don't want to draw too much attention to yourself is on a New York City Subway Train.

808 Studio Quality Headphones in Matte Black

So when a pair of 808 headphones arrived for editorial consideration to say I was a bit skeptical would probably be an understatement. I recently reviewed my new HP Envy Desktop computer which I absolutely love (which is awesome because I had purchased a few lemons over the last few years and was slowly losing faith in them), one of the things that stand out about my new desktop is the amazing Audio. As a long time HP owner (both at work and at home both desktop and laptop), I was never all that impressed with their Audio, until my new Envy, the Beats Audio on my new system is fantastic. Like many writers I have a tendency to write better late at night and once I get into the flow I could write until the wee hours of the morning. That means I'm up clicking away while my world is asleep and for me not to disturb anyone I always listen to music at night while on my computer or desktop with earbuds on.

Studio Quality 808 Headphones Un-boxed showing Headphones, Instruction Manual and Protective Travel Case

I've spent the past few weeks listening to music on my HP Envy Desktop Computer wearing my new 808 headphones and I've also been bringing them with me on roadtrips on weekends and I have to tell you in all the years of my family members in the Audio Industry trying to get me to switch to headphones, this time spent road testing the 808's has made me a convert!

About the 808 Studio Quality Headphones:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Advanced and Powerful 40mm Dynamic Range Audio Drivers with outstanding response and accuracy

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Soft, Comfortable earcups

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 2 Detachable Cables - round without mic and flat with mic

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - High Quality Durable Protective Travel Case

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 3 colors: Black Matte, Black High Gloss, and White High Gloss

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Compatible with iPod, iPhone and iPad

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Works with Android

Watch them in Action:

My Take:

With a street smart style, cutting-edge audio technology, and an affordable price tag, these headphones prove that style, substance and smarts can be achieved at a price point that is reachable for everyone. It brings out nuances in some songs that I don't hear when wearing other headphones/earbuds, there were songs from U2 and Sheryl Crow that I've heard over and over that sounded so much different to me with these. They blocked outside noise (like when I'm in the bus with them on, I don't hear ambulance sirens blaring in my ears and interrupting my tunes) and in the trains I can  use these to block out the Garbled MTA messages (Perhaps the MTA should retain Voxx International to re-do the audio in the subway system, maybe then you'd actually be able hear to the announcements!), they also smartly help me tune out wailing infants, obnoxiously loud cell phone conversations and just immerse myself in the escape that my music collection provides me during a hectic rush hour traffic commute into the city.

Warning to the wise, turn DOWN your current audio level setting on your device before you plug these in, you won't need to have the volume anywhere as close to the setting you are using now. These deliver a rich, even consistent sound, rich bass, and definitely have style for days. I love my 808 headphones, and am excited about their upcoming On-Ear (the Drift) and In-Ear Earbuds that are set to release in 2013 in the months ahead!

I am going to have to see if our friends at Voxx International will consider joining us in our upcoming June 'Dads N Grads' annual gift buying guide with a reader giveaway, because I know you are going to LOVE these as much as I do.

Find out what The Official #TwitterPartyDJ is recommending this Christmas for the #Music Lover in your life! Seriously, @Bassbuds are like a concert in your ears!

Last year I had the chance to review a pair of earphones that were the closest to 'accessory nirvana' as I even imagined possible, I reviewed the Monster® Butterfly™ by Vivienne Tam with ControlTalk™ High Performance In-Ear Headphones and while I loved them, they died on me in one ear during a very long commute. Not Cool. I will tell you that Monster did make it right and replace them, but I was a bit surprised to have those die before their 1 year anniversary of commuting with me during my daily commute. I've had some cheapos last me way longer.

Because of my status as 'The Official #TwitterPartyDJ' I get a wide variety of pitches, directly from musicians (alas I wish I had the influence with the studios to help them more), labels, or music accessories. I'm often a bit leery when it comes to music accessories reviews, I am very picky/selective, I have a great ear, and I will be honest when it comes to my assessments, not all tech or tech gear are alike.

I'm also not ashamed to say the fashionista in me still wants a little form with all that function, but when it comes to music, at the end of the day, sound is and always will be King. Most of my DJ pals will only work with Over-the-Ear Headphones, and while I get that, my strong preference is in-ear earphones. No matter how well padded, I have yet to meet the headphone that doesn't press down on my ears and make them red. With earphones I'm able to adjust the size better and wear them longer.

I've been enjoying happy listening with a new pair of earphones that literally feel like it's a concert in my ear, and I mean that in a GOOD way. A very good way!

Just got some #bassbuds in the post to review ;) #freebies
Bassbuds Classics in ear Earphones

Bassbuds Classic Collection In ear Headphones
Close Up Image of Bassbuds in ear Earphones with Advanced Crystaltronics Sound Technology

My Take:

When they say 'Noise Immersion' they really mean it! When I evaluate new earphones I take time to listen to music across as many genres/styles of music as possible, from Classical, to Jazz, to Rap, to Metal, Latin Music and more, and these literally bring out the sound in ways other earphones hadn't for me. I will warn you to put DOWN the volume on your device before putting these in your ears. And for me that is one of the perks to quality earphones, I can listen to my music on much lower settings, meaning I don't have to charge my portable devices as often when using these! I love the packaging, super sleek and sexy, and when you open it not only are the additional size tips for the earphones included on top, there are also extras right below them inside a carrying pouch you can use to store them while on the go. All packaged with a Certificate of Authenticity. And with their genuine SWAROVSKI Elements, they put the fashion and form into what is already an amazingly functional pair of earphones with amazing sound! They are hands down a perfect holiday gift for any audiophile/music lover in your life. Although I am sure you are going to be pretty hard pressed when it comes time to wrap them because you are NOT going to want to give these away! I will tell you they have a super light weight feel to them, but don't let the good looks fool you, there is serious sound under that 'pretty face'.
