Apple's AirPods are pretty cool. They're miniscule and work very well, even if they do look like the head of an electric toothbrush. But if you don't like Apple gear, there are alternatives out there that do the same thing. Sometimes these tiny wireless in-ears are referred to as 'hearables', but whatever you want to call them we've got a list of three of our favourites — all completely wireless, and all with their own tiny charging cases.

Have you ever thought "my wireless earphones are just too big?" Have you ever thought "man, I wish my headphones told me their battery life whenever I switched them on?" Have you ever thought "I wish I could listen to all my music through one earphone, so I don't need to wear both?" Apple's new AirPods solve a lot of these problems. Problems I'm not entirely sure needed to be solved, but problems nonetheless.
B&O Play is the Danish audio brand's more accessible, younger, funkier sibling, and it has a new wireless speaker to take on Sonos in your home. Design has always been a hallmark of Play and its much more distinguished older brother, and accordingly the new M5 is an utterly beautiful device — probably the most stylish I've ever seen.
Sweat and electronics usually don’t mix—unless you’re sporting these Sweatproof Bluetooth Headphones. Engineered to power through moisture and put out crisp, clear audio, these headphones are perfect for fueling your workouts.
Once in a while, a company takes all the good bits from its previous products and puts them together in a new one, one that hits the mark just right.

Upgrading to wireless audio doesn’t have to cost a fortune — at least not while the Magnetic Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sport Headphones are around. These premium earbuds are designed to fuel your day with hours of tangle-free audio.
Tile is a great idea. It's a tiny, Bluetooth-blasting white square that hooks up to an app on your phone and constantly pings it its location. When you leave the Tile — or whatever it's attached to — somewhere, your phone realises, and when you go to look for it you'll have the power of the internet and Google Maps to help you remember. If that sounds good, then great — you can now stock up on Tiles at JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.
It's been over a year-and-a-half since the GoPro Hero4 Silver and Black were introduced, and we're finally getting our first look at the brand new Hero5. It's still a cute little cube that will record your adventures, so what exactly is new this time? Here's a clear breakdown of the latest action camera in the company's lineup.
When Apple stopped including disk drives on its desktop computers, the world barely batted an eye. When DVD-ROMs were removed from the MacBook, few cared. But the loss of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 is a clear indicator that the apocalypse is upon us. But don't freak out just yet, we're going to help you deal.
When Bluetooth headphones first hit the market in the mid-2000s, it was a good idea to steer clear. The sound was discernibly worse. Connection problems were abundant, and they were expensive. But a decade later, consumer research firm NPD Group says that Bluetooth headphones have finally outsold their wired competition in the US.
Tools are expensive, but so is having to replace your rolling tool chest, because you misplaced its key in your workshop and had to physically cut the lock open. So Craftsman's new Pro Series storage units feature Bluetooth-connected locks that can be opened and secured using an app — just don't lose your smartphone.
Every company wants kids to build stuff — not in an illegal child labour kind of way but in a fun, educational kind of way. Ball robots are teaching kids code and Google's new modular blocks work towards a similar goal. But Bose's BOSEbuild speaker is more interested in teaching the ins and outs of sound and speaker design. It also looks cool as hell.
