Holiday shopping isn’t for everybody. For every credit card warrior who can’t wait to push away from the Thanksgiving table and hurdle toward a spot in the Black Friday lines, there’s a conscientious objector who just wishes Black Friday hysteria would go away.
Getting to the gym is tough enough. Once you get there, it’s a whole new struggle just to keep yourself focused and pushing through your limits. Music can be a big help, but that means it can be a big bummer when your earbuds go out.
These days pretty much all of our music is mobile, and thanks to Bluetooth earbuds, wires have become a needless obstacle. A fine example of the benefits of Bluetooth can be found in this workout-ready headset from Que.
With all our devices, it seems like there are nearly as many ways to listen to sounds as there are sounds themselves. That’s why we’ve gathered up these deals on four of the best ways to enjoy your tunes, shows, podcasts or anything else that tickles your ears.
In this Cult of Mac Deals roundup, we’ve got top-shelf on-ear headphones, nearly invisible in-ear buds, a set of workout-ready Bluetooth earbuds and a headset that transmits sound through bone conduction (seriously).
One of the most important uses of our digital devices is bringing sweet, sweet sounds to our ears. Whether you want to listen to a favorite album or podcast, we’ve gathered some of the best delivery systems for top-shelf sound.
From two different Bluetooth earbud sets to a home audio streaming hub and a set of high-fidelity Bluetooth headphones, there’s plenty here to please your ears.
FRESHeBUDS have been making awesome earbuds for years, but the latest Pro model take things to another level. With an improved fit, water- and sweat-resistance, enhanced battery life, automatic pairing through a simple magnetic link, and of course stellar sound quality, these are the future-ready earbuds you’ve been waiting for.
SAN FRANCISCO — Apple packed some amazing tech into its weird-looking AirPods. But to Nuheara co-founder David Cannington, Apple’s white-hot wireless earphones are just “dumb wireless.”
Sure, AirPods let you listen to music, take phone calls and tap into Siri, but they represent a missed opportunity because they don’t solve a crucial problem faced by many people in the modern world: hearing what’s going on around them.
As you might have guessed, Cannington’s company tackled this problem with a new product that launched at CES this week. Nuheara’s IQbuds are smart, truly wireless earbuds that do more than just make calls and deliver high-fidelity audio to your ears. They make it possible to carry on conversations in noisy environments like restaurants, bars and even massive Las Vegas trade shows.
Moshi’s Mythro Air wireless earbuds look good and sound good. They offer all-day battery life, a clever magnetic clip to keep them in place, and a unique feature that allows you to share music from a single source to two sets of Mythro Air earbuds.
Best of all, they cost $69.99, and sound better than premium earbuds costing two or three times more.
It’s finally cold out but we keep getting hot deals at the Cult of Mac Store. This week, some of our best include a surge protector that’s built for users in 2016, an easy-to-use VPN, a tool for organizing daily tasks into sleek flowcharts, and a set of top-shelf Bluetooth earbuds.
They’re all dramatically discounted and make great ideas for stocking stuffers.
