Koss Pro4S Headphones:

Koss is considered one of the grand old brands of audio equipment, and they literally invented the stereo headphone. This is an amazing deal on their beloved 4S studio headphones that sound great, and fold up for amazing portability. This deal from our friends at Massdrop saves you $30 over the price available on Amazon!

Designed for professional musicians who need reference sound, the Koss Pro4S headphones deliver a flat, unbiased response. They feature the all-new SLX40 element inside an aluminum assembly that’s at once durable, comfortable, and lightweight. First used in the ergonomically designed Pro4AAA, these D-profile cups mimic the ear’s shape to create an excellent seal and a natural fit. The memory foam pads are wrapped in soft protein leather, while the metal headband is cushioned with foam and breathable mesh. Plus, wherever you go, these cans are ready to come along. The 4.5-foot-long cable detaches from the cups and the headphones fold flat to nest in the included carrying case. Finally, the cable has dual-choice entry—and once it’s attached, the opposite side becomes an output, allowing pass-through listening or daisy chaining for extended monitoring.

Kinkajou Bottle Cutter Kit:

This is a cool bit of a crafting tool that can allow crafty folks with a love of wine and beer to make their own custom glassware from the leftover bottles they’d otherwise dispose of. Or make planters, vases, and other custom art pieces from the colorful materials you usually recycle.

Safe DIY Bottle Cutter

If you’ve always wanted glassware made from your favorite bottles, but don’t like the thought of putting your lips to a jagged edge, we’ve got just the thing. Designed to separate nearly any size glass bottle with a simple three-step process, the Kinkajou Bottle Cutter is a DIY device that needs no outside supervision or tools to arrive at a finished product.

Cutter Operation

Start with your favorite empty beer, wine, or liquor bottle. After securing the Kinkajou to the bottle and tightening the bolts in place, adjust the cutting wheel to the intended point of separation and make one full rotation around the bottle. This does not cut the glass, rather the wheel scores the glass and prepares the bottle for the next step.

Finishing Touches

Next, attach the silicone rings above and below the score line and boil up some water. Alternate between the hot pour and cold water from the tap, switching every few seconds until the bottle separates. Don’t worry, you’re almost there. All that’s left to do is smooth out the rough edges with some sandpaper, and a few strips are even provided for you. To get the smoothest edge possible, you’ll need to go up a few grades and add some elbow grease, but you’ll wind up with fully functional and uniquely styled glassware, made in part by you.
