Beats by Dre has redesigned the Studio 2.0 Over-Ear Headphone, making it stronger, lighter, and fit more comfortably on your head. But some things haven’t changed, like the dual-mode Adaptive Noise Cancelling feature. The ANC system automatically strikes a balance between your music and external noise. But go ahead and switch to ANC mode if you want the headphone to increase the level of noise cancellation. Use the RemoteTalk cable for hands-free communication. And don’t worry about losing power. This headphone comes with a twenty-hour rechargeable battery, which is micro USB compatible. The auto on/off feature turns the headphone off when you unplug it, and the visible battery fuel gauge lets you know how much juice your battery has left.

Much easier to clean than a juicer. There are many models of the Vitamix brand. We recommend the Vitamix Professional 750 Series so that you are certain you get the heavy duty blending power. The cheaper non-professional Vitamix blenders are great blenders, but cannot handle frozen bananas like the 750 Pro series can.
