What do we look for in Bluetooth headphones? Well obviously they have to have good sound quality. A lot of Bluetooth headphones skimp out on the bass either to cut corners or to save on battery life. That said, they have to have exceptional battery life. If we’re going to be taking these headphones with us on the go, they have to last all day. And it naturally follows that if they can last all day, well they have to be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time too. And for all of this we’d rather not have to pay an arm and a leg. Some headphones are completely unexceptional in all of those areas but are still outrageously priced. Sound quality, battery life, comfort, well priced. Those are the big ones and the Ghostek soDrop 2 Bluetooth headphones ticks all of those boxes. The sound quality is great, with deep bass, the battery can deliver 14 hours of music playback, the soft leather ear cups are comfortable and smooth, and it’s priced well below similar products of similar grade quality.

Blloc Minimalist Smartphone
2018 is shaping out to be a year filled with a push towards minimalism in the cell phone space. Companies are realizing that some consumers are feeling overwhelmed and anxious by the constant sensory and information overload that modern smart phones provide. The Blloc smartphone is the latest iteration of these devices. Created to place productivity first and distractions second, the phone uses a monochrome UI to simplify your workspace and only display relevant apps when needed. The controls and interface is built around principles of 'less is more' so that you won't constantly get distracted every time you pick up your phone. The phone will debut later in the year and can be pre-ordered now from Blloc directly.
Anker Nebula Capsule
The Anker Nebula Capsule is an all in one package. Similar devices are often much larger and require additional components in order to really function like external speakers, but the Anker Nebula Capsule has it all, and all in the size of a soda can. To be fair, the image brightness does leave just a little bit to be desired, but when you consider the size of the device, the ease of use, and the fact that it includes high quality speakers, it’s easy to be a little bit forgiving and simply draw the curtains a little tighter. It’s perfect for everything from office presentations on the road to turning your campsite into a movie theater. And at around $350 from Anker it’s accessibly priced.
