Stunt.

Ferrari, car #4 in The Urban Gentleman's car collection

STUNT – to floss or show off (informal); any remarkable feat performed chiefly to attract attention (formal)

It's not an everyday occurrence. It's not to gloat to others or to show off… cuz no one likes a show off. It's not to seem better than others, or make people feel bad. It's just to let loose and revel in the spoils of his hard work… cuz he grinds everyday, minus Sunday. Every once in a blue moon you might see an Urban Gent stuntin' on 'em, but don't judge him– it's from a good heart and all in fun. 

He’s So Swank in Navy.

Our Favorites: The Brunello Cucinelli sneakers, essentially if you want or like the Nike Cortex, but wanna turn it up a notch. The Gucci backpack – it's an investment at $1950, but it's one heck of a subtle essential statement piece. With 27 navy pieces, there's something for everyone.

Best Headphones List: On the Ear, Over the Ear, and Earbuds.

 

It's been a minute since our last headphone / earbud / earphone list. I think we laid down the last Top Ten Heaphones in… 2009?! darn time flies! Anywho, it's a new day, there's way more companies vying for that "best" title. We won't just straight up number them, but there are few really good ones out there that we have to highlight. Check out the summaries and product reviews of headphones below:

Soul by Ludacris SL100, $179.99

Soul by Ludacris. I can't lie, I had little expectations for the Souls… I figured Beats were the best because they seemed to be everywhere- on celebrities, in videos, movies, etc. Well, I was very pleasantly proven wrong… Souls are the best headphones on the market right now (atleast in the "Beats vs Souls" battle anyway), and anyone that tells you otherwise is just caught up in the hype.

I've been an "over the ear" headphone person for a long time now. I haven't used an "on the ear" headphone/earphone set since I was in 7th grade listening to my bright yellow sony sports cd player on the school bus. So when I got the on-the-ear Souls (SL100), I was ready to send them back… I knew I wasn't going to like them. But then I nonchalantly put them on while listening to my ipod on shuffle, and I was blown away. So freaking clear, ridiculously clear. I could hear every instrument used to create the beats and melodies… and the sound was perfect. Several comfortable hours later, I could straight up say I experienced music in a new way. That's some cliche' ass sh*t to say, lol, but it's true.  Beats by Dre give you bass, but if you want to hear your music, like feel as if you're apart of the track you're listening too, then Soul by Ludacris is the only way to go. The name is so appropriate. Get a pair of Souls, here.

 

Urbanears Plattan, $59.99

Urbanears. I've been admiring Urbanears for years now. The simple monochramtic, modern yet vintage style speaks to me. These probably have to be some of the most stylish headphones on the mass market, if not the most stylish. They're just so classic, I can't see these not being hot.

I don't know if people usually own more than one pair of headphones, but the Urbanears Plattan would make as the perfect "second" pair if you have an expensive first pair. I could imagine leaving these at the office or around the house, or they could even be reserved just for travel if you don't want to risk loosing your $300 pair. You can buy a pair, here.

NuForce-NE700X. Battle of the Buds is what I like to call it, lol. Earbuds come with pretty much all electronics these days, namely phones and mp3 players. So we all know how uncomfortable they can be. Most pairs are sufficient and can do their job, but I've been searching for a pair that are notches above the rest in comfort and sound. I haven't tried them all, but NuForce makes a nice pair. Check them out, here.

 

V-Moda Vibrato. We've always been fans of V-Moda, especially since they decided early on in the process to not only make their headphones forward thinking in technology, but also in design and style. So with all that good stuff said, the V-moda Vibratos are just as sleek and stylish as the crossfades. Get a pair, here.

 

Custom pair of Fanny Wang 3000, $349.95

Fanny Wang. Funny name, but these are in line to compete with Souls, Beats, and the other heavy hitters. The Fanny Wang 3000s are their top of the line pair, featuring a switch to go from regular mode, to ANC (Active Noise Canceling), to Bass Boost (which gives you bass that is stronger than Beats by Dre, depending on who you talk to). Besides the awesome ability to change how you hear the music, another main difference, or bonus rather, with Fanny Wangs is the customizability of them. They have a solid collection of colors that you can use to customize just about every part of your headphone– inside/outside band, ear muffs, center disc, sound chamber, even the cord.  You can order your first custom pair, here.

I'm not a hardcore audiophile (a person with a strong interest in high-quality sound (usually music) reproduction), but I do love to hear my music the best way possible. These five (2 on the ear, 1 over the ear, and 2 earbuds) definitely are some of the best on the market. Feel free to comment on your favorite headphone/earbuds below.

2013 Lexus GS Review: Safe Comfortable Luxury

*song plays* “Reunited and it feels so goooood…”.

Lol, okay, so my last post was an intro to the new GS. Now after spending quite a weekend in viva Las Vegas I'm ready to get down to the nitty gritty. Overall, the Lexus GS is a nice automobile. The time I spent driving it and testing out the features, made me re-remember what I love about the car. The new Lexus GS is what I'd call– "safe, comfortable luxury," that's the best way I can put it.

In the Las Vegas Desert: A fleet of Lexus… Lexues… Lexi… what is the best plural of Lexus. I guess I'll just say Lexus vehicles. :)

We went to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where we became amateur racers of sort– racing around the track, going through courses, really seeing how the GS could handle. And not only was the ride smooth, while going unmentionable miles per hour, I felt really safe the entire time. This was especially true  when the seatbelts automatically started tightening during some of the less than polished moments of driving/racing around the course.

Another high point of the new GS is their Enform system. This reminds me of the iDrive system in BMW's that I'm used to, except for they seem to have way more stuff…. Voice-enabled apps let you perform local searches with Bing, make restaurant reservations through OpenTable, and get movie tickets via MovieTickets.com. You also have the ability to check in on Facebook and search for business, shopping, restaurant and entertainment reviews on Yelp. Then finally there's Internet radio with Pandora® and iHeartRadio.

Besides that it provides the usual GPS, emergency road assistance, DVD audio and video compatibility, etc that most cars provide these days.
