This week’s roundup includes two new sets of earphones—one set machined from brass, another that takes “wireless” sound to a new level. Read on!
1byone’s Bluetooth Speaker
The $20 1byone’s Bluetooth Speaker is “shower portable”—time for a singalong!—and includes a built-in microphone, just in case you want to take your conference calls while you’re shampooing your hair in the morning.
Flip 10 Recharger
The Flip 10 Recharger is a $25 backup battery with 2,600 mAh of power in reserve. Use your own iOS syncing cable to recharge; the device comes with a micro-USB cable of its own.
The Holdymoly, now in Kickstarter fundraising, looks like a wooden coin: In fact, it has a magnet inside to let it attach to metal surfaces. You can attach your phone to the Holdymoly via a “connector plate” you slip inside your iPhone case, letting you store and display your phone in a variety of convenient locations.
The $199 ME05 Earphones are “precision-machined from solid brass and hand-finished”—the makers say the brass provides “superior acoustic properties.” Comes with silicone ear tips in four different sizes.
New Normal Wireless Headphones
The New Normal Wireless Headphones are pretty stylish, available in either leather or silicone, but our favorite feature: No cables. Instead, an integrated USB port lets you plug the device directly into a computer or backup battery for recharging. Pre-orders are available now; the headphones ship later this spring.
Qwerkywriter Bluetooth Keyboard
The $349 Qwerkywriter Bluetooth Keyboard is just a sublime piece of steampunk, no?
SNAP! PRO iPhone Case
The $129 SNAP! PRO iPhone Case turns your iPhone into a camera: It includes an “actual shutter button, an interchangeable lens system, interchangeable ergonomic grips,” as well as a leather strap; it’s compatible with most tripods.
White Leather Dark Wood Cable
The $85 White Leather Dark Wood Cable is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, with braided leather and wooden connectors; the makers say the mobile charge and sync cable has been certified to meet Apple’s standards.
Wi-Fi Security Camera with Air Quality Sensors
The $190 Wi-Fi Security Camera with Air Quality Sensors is an app-enabled device—monitor it from your iPhone!—that offers HD video, two-way audio, a 135-degree wide angle, and night vision capabilities.
