The Addon T10 Generation 2 from Audio Pro is a rather striking wireless speaker - designed in either matte Black, White or Grey (we received the Grey version) and sporting a genuine leather handle with aluminium detailing. This simple yet attractive piece comes in at 166 x 320 x 180 mm, has a digital class D amplifier, 2x20W + 40W, 2 x ¾” textile dome tweeter and a 5.25” woofer. You can connect devices via the 3.5mm Aux or over Bluetooth standard V4.0.
When you are young, you desire certain items because all of your friends have them. I remember begging my Mum for those hideous sports trousers with the snaps all up the side of the legs, and when I got them, I hated how cold and uncomfortable they were. As you get older the opposite happens, and you begin to crave the things nobody else has. Aedle VK-2’s are beautifully handcrafted, limited production headphones with only one hundred units being created each month.
The tagline for these headphones is, “Be Entertained While Showing Courtesy to Others”, or translated it means, “Yes Dad, I know you don’t want to listen to Mum and I gossiping but that doesn’t mean you can whack the volume up on the TV every time I come around.” More specifically they have been designed to allow you to hear the dialogue during a movie without the sound effects and moments of action waking up the entire house or aggravating your neighbours, they also allow you to watch something with colourful language without making the ears on young children bleed.
More and more people are turning back to the superior sound quality of vinyl, and with that, people are digging out their old record players only to find they don’t work anymore. Or if they are from the younger generation of music lovers, then they are looking to buy their first record player. The Lenco L-85 is a good place to start, choose from 4 colourful designs, black, grey, red and white, to bring a fun and contemporary way to play your vinyl collection.
The Libratone Q-Adapt In-Ear Headphones are available in four attractive colours: Stormy Black, Cloudy White, Elegant Nude and Rose Pink. They come with a matching braided cable, four-button remote access for play, pause, volume, calls and noise cancelling adjustment, three different sizes of ear buds and built-in microphone.
The MH40’s are first and foremost, absolute show stoppers, even if you never use them it is a pleasure just to ogle them and hold them. These over-ear headphones are made with heavy grain premium cowhide headband, exterior surface and ear cup insets, with a soft lambskin on the headband, interior, and ear pads. The lambskin ear pads feature memory foam inside them for extra comfort, making them very soft against your skin, they also mould to your ears and are breathable to help prevent hot ears. They are fully removable, so they can be cleaned or replaced.
At a glance, you may be mistaken in thinking this speaker is just like any other Bluetooth stereo. It certainly looks the same, however it comes with an added twist: a white noise feature to help lull you into a natural sleep. The included 4GB microSD has 10 pre-loaded nature sounds that rise and fall in volume to help your mind relax at night, plus you can also use the Bluetooth connection to stream your own favourite white noise track or music.
The Urbanears Plattan 2 Bluetooth are quite beautiful to behold - available in 5 stylish colours: True White, Tomato, Dark Grey, Black and Indigo (by far my favourite colour and the sample we received), this minimalist design isn’t just a pretty package but also comes with 30+ hours of wireless playtime from a single charge.
