Even Headphones - Redefining the listening experience

Received a set of Even Headphones today. What separates Even Headphones from normal headphones is they calibrate to the characteristics of the listeners hearing. This is achieved by playing 8 sample sounds to each ear. On each sample, the listener selects when they first hear the sound. This allows the headphones to adjust the loudness of different frequencies per ear to the users hearing. The adjustments create a deep listening experience bringing out sounds the user may not hear correctly, and or equally between ears with traditional headphones.

Even is challenging the basic precepts of the audio industry that we all hear the same and that our hearing is perfect. Even think it's time our ears get the attention and love they deserve.

Turning dreams into reality

Eight years ago Jared Mann, a young man with a dream, came to my company Software Development Pty Ltd with an idea to turn a spreadsheet he had created into a commercial software program. That idea was realised into what is known today as Pairtrade Finder. A pair trading software package for Microsoft Windows. He successfully marketed the solution across the globe, earning his freedom to live life as he wants, leaving behind his full-time job at an investment bank. Over the 2015 Christmas period, Jared sold the project to a U.K. company, Event Driven Investor Research LLC, who will continue to grow and market the software. As a developer, it’s great seeing people’s dreams come to life. It’s what I wish for all persons whom we help to turn their dreams into reality. Jared continues to innovate and fill niches in the marketplace as a successful entrepreneur.

Excellent Follow-up. Romance adventure and science fiction all in one

"Let me start by saying I loved this book (Elijah Hael - The Genetic Code). It had a nice steady pace that kept you wanting more. The interaction between the 3 main characters; Elijah, Castiel, and Sophia is believable. This book is the second book in the Elijah Hael series however, you do not need to have read the first book to get this story it is completely stand alone. This book was very emotional and I did find myself crying so be prepared for that. Character development was spot on pacing was excellent and the story was engaging and immersive. I just wish that it had ended that is really my only complaint I love falling into Elijah Hael’s universe. Again I can not state how much I truly enjoyed this book!!!"

Rating 9.5/10

Recommendation: Genuinely good writing and story telling seekers will find what they are looking for with this book. Fans of the Elijah Hael series will love this installment.

The Musings of a Book Addict

"The characters in the story (Elijah Hael - The Genetic Code) are very real, very believable. We have your good versus evil. Humans are unaware that a battle between demons and angels are taking place around them. Humans are the pawns caught in the middle.  Nya is sick.  She has been working on a DNA project for over a decade and now someone else is trying to steal it.  I thought it great naming this person Cain.  You immediately get the idea that he is working for the wrong side.  He is actually trying to he a group of demons called "The Shadows".

The angels, Elijah, Castiel and Sophia have been tasked with protecting Nya and her boyfriend Isaac.

This is not your typical angel versus demon book.  This is not the first book in the series, yet I was able to get right in and enjoy it.  I will definitely need to read the first book to see what I had missed."

"the fluidity of this story was awesome"

"I am so glad that I had the chance to read this story (Elijah Hael - The Genetic Code). It was great!! Mr. Goodwin's writing style was wonderful. His descriptions of each character were very detailed and the way he writes his characters thoughts are realistic. I really enjoyed his writing style, it was easy to follow, descriptive, his transitions were smooth; overall, the fluidity of this story was awesome. I haven't read a book with great writing in a while and it was so re...freshing for my eyes and brain.
This story will definitely keep a reader wanting more. There were lots of suspenseful and action packed events that kept the story interesting and intriguing. I loved that Mr. Goodwin had very descriptive information on the advanced technology. It wasn't too in depth where a reader couldn't understand it in the story. I enjoyed the intricacies with the combined technology and biology, it was a very unique idea.
I enjoyed all the characters in this book. Mr. Goodwin really brings each character's personality out. They were realistic and relatable. He was thorough with most of the characters in describing each characters thoughts and why they had these thoughts. He described each characters physical traits, their non verbal communication methods and their physical movements very well. The characters were very different from one another and they were all likable, even the villains.

Overall, I would highly recommend this story for anyone that wants to read a thrilling, thought provoking action adventure with a touch of romance.

I haven't read the first book but I will definitely be picking it up since I want to get to know Elijah more. Out of all the characters, I thought Elijah was lacking a little but I think that was probably due to the fact that he had his own book. Mr. Goodwin hints at that in this book."

Thanks Jennifer! Glad you enjoyed the story. And you are correct about Elijah Hael. The first book, goes into his story in quite some depth. Great to see you pickup on that hint!

Enthusiasm for learning is amazing & contagious!

My 11 year old daughter got a merit certificate today at school. She gets one every now and then, but this one had a great comment I thought I would share.

"This certificate has been awarded for having an amazing growth mindset. Your enthusiasm for learning is amazing & contagious!" - P. Johnson.

I hope she keeps that attitude all her life.

Elijah Hael - The Genetic Code review by a Independent Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock

Independent Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock

The Genetic Cody by Steve Goodwin, is the second book in the Elijah Hael series, but can be read an a standalone book. I suggest this book for young adults and adults.

There are two sets of main characters in this story. The humans are Nya and her boyfriend Isaac. Nya has just finished a decade long project to decode “Junk” DNA. Before she even has time to celebrate, a man named Cain is trying to steel it.

The other set is the angels Elijah, Sophia and Castiel. They are trying to protect Nya and Isaac from Cain. Cain wants to use it to help “The Shadows”. The shadows are sort of like a demon.

To make things worse, Nya is sick and has avoided her illness for years. But now it is catching up with her. Will she stay safe from Cain? Can she still have a life with Isaac before the illness takes her.

If you like sci-fi with some heartache, then I suggest this book. It takes a new look at God, Creation and Evolution.
