    yeah good okay

    Recs for good wireless Bluetooth headphones? Not looking for pods or anything, but some nicer over ear ones. I've heard Sennheiser (sp?) are pretty good. Noise cancelling is definitely a plus.

    I have Bose Soundlink II over-ear headphones and they're the comfiest I've ever owned. They're a cheaper set from Bose at $200 though and aren't completely noise cancelling, so the bass and highs aren't perfect, but still better than anything I've ever owned. They work well enough where I can't really hear anyone talking to me and nobody can hear my music even a little bit. I'd recommend looking for something similar from Bose that costs a little extra, because I know they're capable of amazing sound while being super comfortable. Their Bluetooth also works really seamlessly, connects to up to 2 devices at a time, and their Bose app is awesome for managing things and software updates.

    Any US or Canadian S20 users in here? I want one but I've seen a lot of worrying posts about GPS issues. I've seen some sites say it was fixed in an update, but others said it didn't fix it. Apparently only affects North American phones with the snapdragon processers. Anyone in here have issues? Or should I take the plunge?

    Yeahh, I said screw it and bought one. They sold out at Target and Google's website but I found it at Kohl's for the same price and jumped on it :-p. I've been meaning to get smart bulbs so it'll be nice to have. We like dim, soft lighting at night. White light tends to keep your brain turned on a bit more when you want to get to sleep

    I love mine just to tell it to play my favorite radio station or any song I want. Well worth it.

    Anyone ever try GE C-Life bulbs? They seem very similar to Philips Hue but are a hell of a lot cheaper. Looks like Google actually sells Google Home bundles with two of those GE bulbs so I know my new Home would support them. I just only know people with Philips bulbs. So expensive...

    Do you have an Android phone and do you ever find yourself triggering them both simultaneously when you say Ok Google?

    That sounds like it'd be pretty damn convenient to have even outside of the shower to just listen to and change music

    It triggers them both. but if you are asking to play music the speakers always works instead.
