Most of us who love to enjoy music through MP3 or our Smartphone usually use low quality headphones provided with the gadgets. If you want to buy good quality headphones and cheap prices then you will have to spend some time for researching online or offline as they are available in wide range of sizes, shapes and technologies. You can buy the best headphones at affordable price by comparing their features, described here under to help you in this regard.

Bass: Many manufacturers of headphones focus on low frequencies to customize the signature sound of their headphones. You know what we're talking about: beats headphones. Beats (as well as other manufacturers) like to have deep, bass-y sounds. But that can detract from other aspects of the music you're listening to. Classical music and other  

Open or Closed-Back headphones: Closed-back headphones isolate your ears effectively from the entire environment regardless of their type. Though the level of this isolation can differ with each model still they are ideal for listening to the sounds privately, when you do not want someone else to hear them. On the other hand acoustically open headphones allow the user to hear outside sounds along with the sounds provided by their headphones. The sound produced by these headphones can also be heard by the persons sitting nearby their user. Normally open headphones are considered better than sealed ones as they do not isolate you completely from the outside world. For outdoor activities open headphones are considered to be the best as they keep you aware about your surroundings.

Weight and comfort level: Though quality of sound of headphones cannot be assessed on general basis but their comfort level can be assessed just by using them for few minutes. If you feel uncomfortable after wearing them for a bit longer time even if they are padded with cosy materials then they may not be suitable for you, even if they are highly priced. Similarly if the headphones are heavy even then you cannot feel comfortable to wear them for several hours. Hand-band style lightweight headphones are considered as the best as they are easy to carry as well as comfortable to wear for long time.

Durability: The technology used in quality headphones usually should not get obsolete in next 6-12 months. So while buying headphones you should focus on technology used in them so that you can use them for longer period, without replacing them, to make them more affordable for you.

Length and style of cable: Usually headphones have single cable to be attached to one of its earpieces but in some models Y-shape cable is used to connect both of its earpieces. Similarly some headphones have L-shape angled plug whereas some have I-shaped straight plug. The length of cable can also vary with each model of headphones. So you can choose headphones on the basis of your own preferences in this regard.

Thus, by comparing and assessing the features of some of the headphones you can easily get quality headphones for cheap prices. In fact, price should not be the only criteria to find suitable headphones.

Ways Of Making VPS Hosting Affordable For Your Website

It’s now inevitable for all businesses – big and small – to have good online presence. Business owners are constantly looking for ways to reduce the costs involved in maintaining their websites. Web hosting is one area with
potential cost savings. If you use Virtual Private Servers (VPS) hosting, here are some tips to make the service more affordable:

1. Take time to research on the best deal

There are hundreds if not thousands of companies that offer VPS hosting services. This is both a good and bad thing for website owners. On one end, you have a wide variety of service providers to choose from so you can be sure to get what you are looking for. On the other end - the bad one – you have to prudently search for a reliable service provider among many companies, some of which don’t offer what they promise.

VPS Coupon Codes Resources:

One excellent place to check out is They have VPS coupons for nearly every company under the sun. You can check out their GoDaddy discounts here: If that doesn't quite work, then there are some more promo codes on Coupon Lynx:

Comparison Shopping is Good:

Don’t be afraid to shop around and compare a wide range of plans. It’s the only way to the pick the plan that provides the greatest cost savings. It’s important to remember that low-priced packages aren’t necessarily what you
should be looking for. Evaluate different plans based on the services they provide, then move to price and select the most favorably priced plan among these.

2. Do a background check on the companies you are considering

For most people, reliability and availability of support are very crucial aspects of VPS hosting. This is why you should really seek to know more about the company you intend to use for your website. A service provider that assures you of 24/7 availability and support for your business can help you make significant savings on your hosting plan. With such a provider, you will suffer few instances when the site is unavailable and this helps to reduce business losses. The bottom line: make sure the service provider is credible.

3. Find free VPS hosting setups

There are reputable companies that offer free setups. This is a simple way of how to make VPS hosting affordable for your website. Not all hosts will provide this opportunity, and there are some that are not genuine in their offering. So, take caution as you look for free hosting setups. Avoid hosts that require you to pay unreasonably high fees upfront. You are looking for cost savings so don’t be blindsided to the potential benefits of any free plan.

4. Identify hidden charges

Set up and account activation fees should be straightforward. Have a keen eye on other fees that the host may charge. Most of these aren’t that obvious but can add a considerable burden to your monthly hosting budget. For
instance, it might be standard practice for a host to add some features and services to all packages. When choosing a VPS hosting service provider, look for a host that offers customized service. That is, they combine all the features you need in your package so that you know exactly what you are paying for. This will definitely help you to avoid hidden charges and thus reduce the cost of your plan.

Your website is an indispensable tool for business. As you plan on how to host it, remember it will grow (or will be required to grow) with your business. Think strategically to achieve long-term cost savings. Use your business requirements to make server decisions. If you proactively and continuously plan for your server investment, you will definitely save many dollars over time.

Thinking you need spend an arm and a leg to get the best graphic design software? Think again. Like many of the best webmaster resources in the internet world, you can get a surprising amount of quality tools absolutely free.

For any individual that is just trying to do some basic things when it comes to graphic design then they can be a wonderful resource and considering you are not going to be spending any money, then it is worth exploring them in greater detail.

1. Serif Draw Plus Starter Edition.

This software is rather impressive in what it can offer you and in some ways it is certainly comparative to a number of the features on various Adobe products. It comes with a range of brushes and templates and is pretty good at 3D objects as well. It also has a number of features that are similar to Adobe Illustrator which may prove to be useful to you.

Download here:

2. Gimp.

Gimp is actually pretty amazing at what it can offer you as a free piece of software. You can also have an interface on it that largely copies Photoshop if that is something that you are more used to. However, the most important thing with this program is the ease of use and you do get access to a full suite of tools right from the get go. It can be used for design as well as photo editing and works with a number of different file formats as well.


3. Blender.

If you are looking to do something in 3D then Blender is probably the best free software that you are ever going to come across. It has been around since 2002 but it has been updated a number of times to the point where you are able to do almost anything that you can imagine in 3D. This means you can render, do compositing, animation and so much more.


4. Inkscape.

This is a free program that is primarily aimed at creating and editing vector graphics. As it is free, it is seen by many as being the best alternative to the rather expensive Adobe Illustrator and it certainly has a number of features that will be familiar to you. It has a very clear and easy to understand interface and has more than enough tools to allow you to produce some pretty cool graphics although there are several restrictions with the free version.



The main reason for to exist is to help you to make infographics without getting too stressed about it all. Infographics are extremely popular at this moment in time and this free piece of software is going to just allow you to include the information that you want and produce something that is eye catching just by basically clicking on a few boxes. Choose a theme, select the shapes of the boxes, and get the end result.



This is one resource that is perhaps not as well known as some of the others, but that should not be something that then puts you off using it. Instead, this is a program with an easy to use interface that allows you to create some rather stunning graphics even if you are an absolute beginner at it all. It has a number of tools and is quite impressive at what it offers you considering it is free. However, it may take you some time to get used to all of the different options but it is certainly worth persevering with it.


As you can see, there are a number of options when it comes to free graphic design software and it all depends on what your own personal requirements are as to which one is going to work best. However, what these examples show is that it is not always necessary to go and spend a lot of money on some program by Adobe because there are certainly other alternatives out there that can be just as good and they are at least better on your bank balance. Try them out, see how you get on with them and perhaps at least one of these options will become your go-to tool of the future.

First, a few words for those who want to know what greasemonkey is and what wonders it can do: Greasemonkey is Firefox add-on which let you edit the way web looks and works with the help of a wide variety of already available scripts. Greasemonkey works because scripts are assigned for specific urls where it will only work and javascript change the functionality or visually the way webpage looks (it depends for what script was made)

To use Greasemonkey first you need Firefox then Greasemonkey (install) simply click on install script and Greasemonkey will do rest of the job: simply enjoy changing the web your own way.

According to BlogsDNA
Whenever you will download any Greasemonkey script, your Greasemonkey Firefox add-on will automatically detects site for which that script is applicable and applys that script to the site as soon as you open it.

As promised the following are 21 most useful and best of the best Greasemonkey scripts which can change the whole user experience of any specific web application. (i chosen them from best lists out there worth 2 hours i found some new and better ones)

1. Youtube Googler (Install Script)

This script is so useful when you always want to see videos in bigger size still not full screen but moderately large so pixel don’t explode in the video. This greasemonkey script makes youtube more look like Google Videos making the video area covering most of the screen (which is obviously a user concern on that page) striping comment area and video suggestion all together on the left just like a sidebar image reference available below.

2. Youtube Alternative Video Player (Install Script)

Do you hate auto playing of youtube videos like i do? when I am searching for some videos i open 3 or maybe 4 videos at once then i have to manually pause them to see any one of them which is totally un acceptable. we have another option with this script, it replaces the stock Youtube Video Player with one that keep the video paused until ‘Play’ button is pressed but it keep buffering the video without playing them so when you press play you get already loaded video.

3. Download Youtube Video III (Install Script)

If you are everyday youtube user you must came across videos that you badly want to save on your hard disk for future usage. If yes give this script a try it will fulfill all your video downloading needs very nicely when you click on download video icon (that appears with icons under video after installing script) the download pop up will come up from where you can take video to your download manager if you want faster downloads. Linux users need to Right Click and choose ‘Save as’.

4. Youtube “Lights Out” (Install Script)

This script is eye saver I say sometimes video is too dark or too light that you literally want youtube page’s base colour to be black so you can concentrate on video and watch it properly without hurting your eyes. well now you can do something about it this script gives you a little button to switch the lights off and watch the video easily when you click on ‘Lights Out’ button everything on the page (except video) turns dark gray when you click again everything turns Black. When it’s too dark and you can find ‘Lights Out’ button don’t panic clicking anywhere on the page will turn lights on.

5. Flickr “Lights Out” (Install Script)

Flickr Lights Out works same as ‘Youtube Lights Out’ so you can watch pictures easily when lighting condition is not all good matching with picture the only difference is ‘Light Out’ button is on top of picture.
6. Text Areabackup (Install Script)

Remembering everything you write on the web is not as easy as it sounds this script gona ease your mind. Text Areabackup work as a remembering machine while you browse the web and putting your emails, website addresses in short everything you write will be save in a virtual memory of this script. (Note: this script don’t work with Gmail)
7. Google Image Relinker with Mouseover (Install Script)

This is one of my favourite script because of its function and how much ease it gives when you searching for images in Google Image Search. Normally you when you search for images you have to do a lot of mouse clicks to get to the actual image but now things are a little bit interesting when this script is installed you just ‘Mouse Over’ or we say ‘Hover’ over any image thumbnail and see the image preview first then click on it and you get to the image directly instead of clicking again for ‘full size image’ its mean only one click and you get the image. How sweet!

8. Google Account Multi-Login (Install Script)

I am using more than two gmail accounts one for work purpose and one my personal so i had to find this script for multiple account usage at once because signing out and signing in again isn’t as easy as it sounds and waste bit of time too. After installing script your ‘Sign Out’ will turn into drop down box with a couple of options there you can add as many accounts as much you want and switch them with a single click of mouse.

9. GoogleTagCloudMaker (Install Script)

GTCM is really very useful script when you can’t decide proper keyword of your desired search result. It makes a tag cloud at your right pane with suggestion of many relevant keywords to choose from this also help you finding related search results of what you are looking for.

10. Google Ads Remover+ (Install Script)

Sometimes ads are really annoying specially when your connection is slow and web page stuck when it’s loading ads. Now you can remove Google ads from any website you want for faster browsing as a side note I won’t recommend disabling ads because sometimes you really find good resources and considerable product offers out of them so if you have no problem with them then leave as they are. Other usage of this script is to configure it to disable ads from a specific url not the whole web just like i did it with my website so I don’t accidentally click them and penalize for click fraud.

11. Google Image Auto Pager (Install Script)

This is another script for google image search to make searching images easier. Google image auto pager makes ‘image search page’ advance by giving you option to load next set of images on the second page loads on the very same page where you start. When you search for some image you get a lots of results when you are done with first page simply ‘Double Click’ any where on the page to load next set of images doing this again will stop the loading process.

12. Disable Text Ads (Install Script)

I know I know sometimes text ads (Contextual ads) are so much annoying that you badly want them not to disturb and make hurdles during browsing. This script work simply you install it and get rid of text ads forever. Currently this script is removing ads from following Advertisement networks “Vibrant Media (IntelliTXT), AdBrite, Infolicious (lingoSpot), Kontera, Linkworth, EchoTopic, Targetpoint and MediaText.”

13. Pre-fill Comments (Install Script)

Pre-fill Comment is really a life saver script because the one’s who comment on blogs, products or webpages will love this script for life. I know no body likes to write his name, e-mail and url everytime he want to visit a new blog then how about just pressing ‘Alt+C’ and the fields will be filled automatically sounds very easy, yeah obviously it is.

14. LookItUp2 (Intsall Script)

This script is more than just a greasemonkey script because when i first saw this i never believed just a script can do this much. You can add whichever website in it to look up what ever you want to just like add wikipedia and search for ‘Al Pacino’ now you get information without exploring all over the website. Many search sources comes when you install the script and you can add many more according to your choice i prefer you to visit this script’s homepage so you know all information about it because features are vast and I can’t review it all here.
