Ergonomic office accessories can make a tremendous difference in their productivity, interest in their work, and level of comfort.

Ergonomic office chair

An ergonomic office chair makes it easy to remain at a desk for up to eight hours or more. An uncomfortable office chair will not only be a thorn in your side but it’ll kill your productivity while giving your back major troubles in the long-term. Ergonomic chairs are designed to support a person’s posture while sitting, ensuring you don’t feel the same stresses on your body by sitting across long periods of time.

Ergonomic sit-standing desk

An ergonomic sit-standing desk establishes a dedicated workspace for you that isn’t the kitchen table. Too many people settle for working in spaces that aren’t strictly for working. This breaks down on focus and exposes them to distraction. Do yourself a favor and purchase dedicated ergonomic height adjustable sit-standing desk as a perfect match to your chair to ensure your body’s well taken care of and your focus is maintained on what’s most important.

Ergonomic lighting

Lighting is an underrated element of a home office work setup. The average home worker tends to work long hours which means lighting can certainly play a role in things like eye strain and productivity. Choosing the right LED bulb and ensuring there’s no color distortion is key. When combined with the right ergonomic office accessories, lighting will allow a worker to remain productive long into the night.

Cables

An underrated element of the home office are charging cables. Whether it’s for your computer, smartphone, tablet, music playing device, or anything else, you want to ensure you have all the USB cables, ergonomic office cables, HDMI cables, headphone cables, and/or laptop cables. Charging docks and similar elements can also make it easy to keep your devices charged.

4 ways to Maximize your 4K TV Viewing with a TV Wall Mount

To get the most out of your 4K TV, one of the things that works best is buying a TV wall mount. If you’ve recently bought your very first 4K TV, that’s awesome news. Be sure to set aside some money to give it everything it needs to look great and maximize the home entertainment experience. With any luck, a TV wall mount will work to bring your family even more joy and entertainment in the years ahead.

 

Setting up your 4K TV

Using a TV wall mount, you want to be careful where you set up your 4K TV as to minimize light glare, as well as to consider the arrangement of sofas, furniture, and doorways. Should you choose to purchase a TV wall mount with tilt included, this can help combat reflections of light from your windows or emanating from lamps or light fixtures. If you don’t have a tilt, you want to be more careful regarding where to place your TV and against what wall.

Now it’s cable-time for your 4K TV

After your TV has been properly mounted and set up, now you’ve got to connect your devices and any associated cables. Consider upgrading your HDMI cables while you’re here, ensuring they’re capable of 4K signals. Whether you’re connecting a satellite box, Blu-ray player, media streaming device, soundbar, or surround sound system, trying to figure out how these cables are supposed to work together may require a cable organizer.

 

Calibrating and testing everything

 

After your flat-screen is firmly placed in a TV wall mount and once you have your devices connected, it’s now time to test everything and calibrate your contrast, color, brightness, and color temperature. Especially with a 4K TV, you want to make sure you’re getting everything out of its picture. If there’s a setup disc or should you choose to rely on your eye to calibrate, the important thing is taking the time to get its’ settings just right.

 

Connecting your soundbar or speakers

 

The last thing that should come after your 4K TV and TV wall mount is a good set of speakers. 4K TVs get you great picture quality but they don’t promise anything about sound. Consider a multimedia speaker set, a surround sound speaker set, or a Bluetooth soundbar to really give your 4K TV everything it needs to be optimum as a home theater source.

How to Connect a Mac to a TV using HDMI for Full Audio and Video Support

There are plenty of reasons why Canadian households have chosen to connect their Mac to their flat-screen, including to share business presentations, to game, and for movie streaming. From start to finish, we’re here to help share how to do it in the most efficient way. Using HDMI is the best recommendation for maximizing video and audio quality.

 

As shared, using an HDMI cable will be the easiest way to make this connection. Whether you’re using a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, or other Apple computer, HDMI is cheap, keeps resource usage low, maintains a high video quality with no risk of latency, and provides a much more versatile signal. All you’ll need beyond your computer and flat-screen is to an HDMI cable and the DisplayPort to HDMI adapter required to make the HDMI connection possible. Keep in mind the latest MacBook models already have an HDMI port so you may not even need an adapter.

 

Let’s say your MacBook does not have an HDMI output. Then, you must find your Thunderbolt or DisplayPort output and connect your adapter to it. The location of this may vary depending on the model of MacBook so give your computer a quick search. After connecting the HDMI adapter to the video output, connect the HDMI cable to the adapter and then, turn on the computer. From there, jump on the flat-screen and switch the video input source to its intended HDMI destination. The great thing about Macs are that they should instantly pick up on the connection to an HDTV. Instantly, you should see what’s on your desktop on your screen.

 

As great as this is, there are a few additional steps to take to optimize your MacBook to TV performance. If you’re seeking to watch a movie or play games from your MacBook, you may want to use the Display Mirroring feature. Go into “System Preferences”, into “Displays” and then “Arrangements”, and then, “Mirror Displays”. Set up the TV display as your MacBook’s primary display. You’ll also want to change the sound output from the Mac to the TV via HDMI, possible going through “System Preferences”, choosing “Sound”, and then “Output”.

 

Connecting your MacBook is pretty easy though occasionally you may run into some issues. Be sure to follow these steps and hopefully you won’t run into any surprises. If you do experience a problem not covered in this guide, search it out online. The Internet’s filled with forums of people who’ve run into all sorts of technical issues with computers, home theater accessories, and product. We can almost guarantee the answer’s out there. All the best with hooking up your computer to TV using HDMI!

How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Headphones

As music enthusiasts, podcast listeners, and consumers of media, we all love a good set of headphones or earbuds. How to choose a good high quality pair of headphones can be different for each person. Style, budget, and so many other factors play a role into buyers’ decision on choosing the right headphones for them.

 

Every headphone comes with a different style, fitting your ears a little differently, and sounding slightly different when you take a listen. The first thing and perhaps the most obvious thing to decide when selecting the perfect pair of headphones is to figure out what form you want them to take. For example, there are earbuds and in-ear headphones that are generally more inexpensive, smaller which makes them great for mobile use and storage in a pocket or bag, and come with many advantages. That said, sound quality wise, they don’t come close to over-the-ear headphones. If you’re uncomfortable putting things in your ear, don’t go this route.

 

Then, there are ear pad headphones which are supremely comfortable. The small pads go over the ear, keeping your ears super comfortable while listening to music and media. These headphones’ provide great sound, are nice for exercising, and can also be quite portable. Good quality ones should keep a lot of the noise out however some of the cheaper models see sound seeping in. Lastly, there’s the full size headphones with ear cups that hug the ear. The design is fairly large, and can be both open and closed. These larger headphones have great bass, clear sound, and noise isolation. To that last point, if noise cancellation is an important feature you require for your headphones, it’s worth browsing the PrimeCables catalogue for specific models.

 

Among the best headphones in the PrimeCables catalogue are the stereo ergonomic earbud headphones with mic and volume control for $4.99, the premium hi-di DJ-style over-the-ear professional headphones for $19.99, wireless Bluetooth earbuds with mic and charging case for $49.99, enhanced bass and noise isolating earbuds in all colors for $11.99, and so much more. Any time you shop with PrimeCables, you’ll receive fast, free shipping on all orders above $49 to anywhere in Canada, free returns, and a 1-year product guarantee. Please feel free to look into the more than two dozen other headphone models and find the right design for your needs.
