Technics EAH-A800 cans square up to Bose with whopping 50-hour battery life

Technics might be better-known for making fancy turntables, but you’d be a fool to ignore its headphones when they include the new EAH-A800. Aiming to give the likes of Bose and Sony something to worry about, Technics has gone big on the noise-cancelling side of things, with a Dual Hybrid system that uses four microphones in each ear cup. There’s also a Natural Ambient mode and Attention mode,… → Read More

Sony’s Bravia Cam tells you off if you get too close to your telly

And it'll tweak the picture depending on where you sit, too → Read More

BenQ’s GS50 takes the home cinema outside

As the leaves start to turn, temperatures start to drop and the chances of rain increase, it’s unlikely too many people are thinking about heading outside to set up an al fresco cinema, but BenQ’s new GS50 projector (£629) might just be enough to convince a few more to brave the elements. With IPX2 certification you’ll want to check the forecast before you schedule your movie night because that… → Read More

The GoPro Hero10 Black is a little box of 5K tricks

Extreme sports are all about pushing yourself. Can you pedal faster, skate harder, break more bones. For nearly 20 years now GoPro has been on a similar mission to always go one better – and the Hero10 Black (£430) pushes everything to 11. With LCD screens front and back to make things easier to frame, it looks pretty much identical to the Hero9, but the speedy new GP2 chip inside takes its… → Read More

Coros Vertix 2 adventure watch is more accurate and lasts longer than ever

When you’re halfway up Scafell Pike, the last thing you want is for your watch to tell you it thinks you’re actually in Milton Keynes and then for the battery to die. Strap a Coros Vertix 2 (£599.99) on, though, and its new dual-frequency GPS chipset and 60-day battery life should make such a scenario practically impossible. It can use all five major global satellite systems simultaneously to… → Read More

Groov-e’s Radio Curve is a portable slumber-stopper

Life can be pretty exhausting right now, so it can be tempting to take every opportunity to grab 40 winks: on the bus, halfway up a mountain, at the dentist. Oversleeping in those situations can be risky, but Groov-e’s Radio Curve (£19.99) should stop you from waking up in Penge or without any teeth. This compact alarm clock has a 1200mAh rechargeable battery inside, which means you can take it… → Read More

Klipsch T5 II buds come with AI-powered gesture controls

While humans might seem to make the world a more stupid place with every passing day, artificial intelligence is now popping up everywhere – and Klipsch’s new T5 II True Wireless ANC (£299) earphones are the latest to benefit. As well as being the first pair of Klipsch true wireless buds to get active noise-cancelling, they also come with an AI-powered Bragi operating system, which lets you… → Read More

Wireless in-ears get the personal touch from NuraTrue

Lots of headphones now come with apps that let you tweak how they sound, but you’ll struggle to find a pair that offer anything like the level of personalisation you get from Nura. Put the NuraTrue (£199) buds in your ears for the first time and they’ll send a sequence of beeps and boops into your head, which the app then uses to create a bespoke audio profile. There’s also ANC onboard, IPX4… → Read More

The Beoplay EQ are Bang & Olufsen's first ANC true wireless earbuds

Active noise-cancelling silences all kinds of unwanted racket – the drone of a plane cabin, Gavin’s office chit-chat, next door’s grim taste in music – but it’s been such a long time coming on B&O true wireless buds that we suspect the Beoplay EQ’s ANC is only there to block out the deafening chorus of requests for it. These IP54-rated buds come with a dedicated DSP chip for the ANC, with… → Read More

LG’s FP9 earbuds come with spatial audio and a Bluetooth case

With their UV cleaning tech, LG’s Tone-Free earphones already had one thing to set them apart from their rivals, but the new FP9 (£TBA) are now even more tempting. As well as built-in active noise-cancelling, the IPX4-rated buds support Headphone Spatial Processing from Meridian Audio, plus 3D Sound Stage, which should both make your music sound that bit more lifelike. Another nifty new addition… → Read More

You can now buy a plug socket with a built-in Bluetooth speaker

Ask somebody to describe the plug socket of their dreams and chances are most people will look at you blankly, as if they’ve never considered what might be possible with the humble 2-gang – but our old friends at What Hi-Fi might just have stumbled on the holy grail. Behold, the 13-amp plug socket with a speaker where the second outlet should be – it’s even got a couple of 5V USB sockets too.… → Read More

Philips OLED705 is an unusually affordable OLED TV

Along with the eye-popping colours and amazing contrast, when you buy an OLED TV you usually also get one other thing: a pretty hefty credit card bill. While Philips’s OLED705 is hardly spare change, the 55in version will set you back a relatively affordable £979, despite offering loads of top-end telly tech. Its P5 chip uses AI to bolster the picture processing, with support for Dolby Vision… → Read More

Astell&Kern’s modular SE180 audio player lets you change how it sounds

For a lot of people, being able to change the volume of their music is all the customisation they need – but if you’re the kind of person who’s willing to fork out for a dedicated Astell&Kern audio player, that’s not going to cut it. The company’s new A&futura SE180 (£1399) is the first to support interchangeable DAC modules, so if you decide the eight-channel 32-bit/384kHz SEM1 module… → Read More

Garmin’s Venu 2 watch can tell you how old your body really is

Garmin has pretty much got a sports watch for every occasion, but if you’re looking for a genuine all-rounder its new Venu 2 (£349.99) looks like a pretty solid bet. It comes in two sizes, the 45mm Venu 2 (left) and 40mm 2S (right), and while the designs are different the watches are pretty much identical inside. Armed with the usual suite of sensors it’ll measure things like your heart rate,… → Read More

Lego’s new 2314-piece R2-D2 is the droid you’re looking for

Considering all the bumps and scrapes R2-D2 gets into over the course of the many Star Wars films, it’s surprising he doesn’t spend more time in bits – but to mark Lucasfilm’s 50th anniversary, Lego has launched a 12in tall, 2314-piece version of the galaxy’s most accident-prone droid. With a rotating head, periscope, hidden compartments and tools such as a lightsaber hilt, plus his trademark… → Read More

B&W makes its true wireless debut with pricey PI7 earbuds

B&W doesn’t mess about when it comes to sound. So while its audio adversaries have been churning out true wireless earbuds for a while, the British hi-fi bods have bided their time – but the PI7 (£349, pictured) sound like they were very much worth the wait. While they look like they mean business, the important stuff is on the inside: Dual Hybrid Drive units that work just like B&W’s… → Read More
