HOW TO OWN PROPERTY IN SINGAPORE

Singapore was one of the top two countries in the political stability indicator (1.59), trailing only Monaco and New Zealand. In general, political stability is considered a necessary condition for trade, investment, and economic growth.

It was also one of the top two countries in educational attainment (99), directly behind South Korea. “Educational attainment and skill acquisition are key indicators for trade and economic competitiveness,” the report said.

High levels of inequality, as measured by the Gini coefficient (34 points), continue to be an issue in Singapore. “Since 2007, the Gini coefficient has declined and Singapore has taken measures to increase upward mobility,” the report said. “However, income inequalities remain high. Countries should be wary that trade can impact inequality, and similarly, high levels of inequality can result in societal tensions that can become an obstacle to further trade growth.”

How do the SoundPro speakers go in the helmet? Do I need to install it?


The SoundPro fits best when you slide the two speakers behind the helmet liner into the ear pockets. That keeps it in place and situated in a way where you can't even feel that the speakers are there. The speakers are designed to stay in place with hook and loop 3M Velcro. There is no permanent installation.




Can I plug it into my MP3 Player or other non-bluetooth device?


You cannot plug the SoundPro into MP3 Player's or other non-bluetooth devices. The SoundPro is a standalone product that is only compatible with Bluetooth devices.




How loud is it?


The SoundPro can exceed 115 dB. In other words...it's insanely loud.




What is that twist dial the speakers are connected to?


The twist dial that the speakers are connected to is the Bluetooth controller. Inside that thin controller is the battery, Bluetooth chip, and amplifiers for the speakers. It can attach directly to your helmet with included Dual Lock 3M removeable fasteners, or it can clip to your googles, chinstrap, backpack, etc. with an included attachable clip.




How's the sound quality?


Great! The SoundPro delivers crisp sound, extreme bass, and unsurpassed music quality. Our audio engineers worked zealously on the SoundPro to bring high-fidelity sound in a compact size. The SoundPro is designed to be the best sound for helmet audio. While the primary feature of the SoundPro is that it is the most comfortable helmet audio solution on the planet, we worked tirelessly to ensure its sound quality matches it's unsurpassed comfort. The SoundPro is the loudest, best sounding, most comfortable helmet audio system ever created.




Is there any sound leakage that might disturb others around me?


From our own usage we haven't run into this issue. If you are in a quiet room with the volume turned up, there may be some sound leakage, but out in the backcountry or at a stoplight where there is more ambient noise, we haven't noticed any sound leakage.




Is it waterproof?


Yes. The SoundPro has an IPX5 waterproof rating. In technical terms, the SoundPro is certified to resist a sustained, low-pressure water jet spray. It is perfectly suitable for muddy, rainy, and snowy conditions.

How is the battery life?


In ideal condidtions with comfortable volume levels, the battery will last for 10-12 hours. In more extreme weather conditions (0° F) at moderate volume levels the SoundPro will last for 4-6 hours.




Are the microphones good?


Yes! The microphones are built directly into the speaker housing and are designed with technology that enables them to pick up your voice perfectly even while riding at high speeds with a loud machine. They are well suited for your coach communicating to you out on the track, and for staying in touch with your ridding buddies on the road or in the backcountry.
