Nura’s New Concept of Having Earbuds on a Subscription May Not Be a Great Idea

Nura has introduced a subscription model for these earbuds. You can now own earbuds on a monthly basis and this service has been named NuraNow. It guarantees that you will get new pair of this brand’s earbuds after two years. The only drawback is that since it is a subscription model, you will not own the products that are offered by Nura.

Payment Details

There is a $20 fee for setup and the services begin at $5 per month. This will give you access to Nurabuds. However, if you want to use the Nuraphone instead, then you will have to pay $10 per month after you first pay the $50 fee at the start. There is also the Nuraloop which is accessible at $8 per month and a $30 initial fee. In addition, a subscription to NuraNow can get you monthly giveaways and discounts. The early birds signing on for this subscription will get a 3-month membership to Endel. This is an AI-based sound app; it aims to relax you and improve your sense of focus.

Cancellation Policy

NuraNow does not have a contract that will bind you to them but if you want to cancel this subscription, you have to just fill up a form. Once you cancel, the brand will deactivate the device remotely and give you 30 days to return whichever product you may have with you. In case you are not able to return it within the stipulated time, Nura will continue to charge you for it.

To Sign or Not to Sign Up

It may seem quite exciting to get new pairs of earbuds or headphones every couple of years but since this product is something you would be using every day and have your sweat all over it, you might as well own the product. If you think about it, you will end up paying $140 for the NuraNow in two years, which is the cost of Apply AirPods (if they were on sale) or even the Samsung Galaxy Buds.

OtterBox Gets Launches a Line of Accessories for Xbox Controllers

Designed for Xbox, OtterBox is bringing to market new accessories to complement controller + smartphone gaming in addition to gaming-specific smartphone accessories.For the past twenty years, OtterBox has targeted a less physically active but still sporty demographic with the company’s new line of gaming accessories. It is mostly for mobile players; however, there are a few items that event console gamers can enjoy to the fullest.

OtterBox Easy Grip Controller Shell

OtterBox Easy Grip Controller Shell Back This special accessory is installed on the handles of the standard Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S gamepad to prevent scrapes and nicks while leaving the buttons and thumbsticks free so their sensitivity won’t be affected in any way. The special grip pads on each side can be swapped out for easy cleaning and a whole different look. The shell costs $40 and comes in three color schemes: dark gray, light gray, or purple with green piping that glows in the dark.

Gaming Case

OtterBox hasn’t forgotten its core strength as a manufacturer of phone cases. The Easy-Grip Gaming Case costs $55 and offers an exterior that’s easy to hold, and it’s also bacteria-resistant, while the interior is designed to vent heat away from the device.

OtterBox Gaming CaseOtterBox’s products are precisely aimed at phone gamers, starting with the $30 Mobile Gaming Clip. It doesn’t look all that different from the products of other companies; however, the clip is more easily adjustable, even if people decide to use it with larger phones. It doesn’t use any kind of spring mechanics, so gamers can swap their device in and out with one hand if needed. It can also be taken off easily when you want to switch to using the controller with their computer or console instead. The clip folds flat for easy storage, even when it’s still attached to the gamepad.

These products may not be considered affordable, but neither is repairing a busted controller or phone. Pre-orders for OtterBox’s entire gaming line will start January 25 via Microsoft, GameStop, Verizon, and, of course, OtterBox’s site.
