In a world where the device you keep with you all day is devoid of a 3.5mm headphone jack, wireless headphones suddenly become far more attractive than they have been in the past — at least, for me. I’m currently living the dongle life, and let me tell you, it’s awful. Those nasty things are fragile, tiny and infuriating to use on a daily basis.
Bluetooth, then, looks like the most viable alternative. But when you buy Bluetooth headphones, you don’t just want plain old Bluetooth headphones. At least, not when you have the option to pick one up with state-of-the-art noise cancellation technology.
That, young grasshopper, is where Sony‘s stunning lineup of 1000X headphones come in.

Recently, I’ve been obsessed with wireless noise-cancelling headphones. More specifically, I’ve been obsessed with Bose‘s QuietComfort 35 headphones with active noise cancellation. They’re comfortable, light, sound great, and look so dapper. But, one could make the case that, Sony has the better pair of ANC cans with the MDR-1000X and its successor, the WH-1000XM2.
Sony’s headphones are definitely the better value proposition and they’re a lot more high-tech but I’ve always preferred the QC35’s fit. Now, though, there’s a second contender and it’s JBL’s Everest Elite 750 NC headphones.

The redesigned control centre is one of our favourite features on iOS 11. By swiping up from any screen, you can switch off/on mobile data and even hotspot easily without having to dig through settings. On top of that, you also get your usual Airplane mode, WiFi and Bluetooth toggle as well.
However, did you know that when you switch off Bluetooth and WiFi from the control centre, it isn’t really turned off as you would expect?
Jaybird is probably one of the more popular brands when it comes to minimal wireless in-ear headphones. Their wildly popular X1 and X2 headphones offer great sound and portability for a great price so it’s really not that surprising.
If you’ve always wanted to get your hands on a pair of Jaybird headphones here in Malaysia, you’re in luck because Funsportz (the people who bring in GoPro gear) are now officially distributing them locally.
Communication began from face to face conversations and has become more of a virtual experience in its current state. No matter in voice, video or text, we’ve all found new ways to get our messages across. Words fly across our screens all the time, especially in our instant messaging apps, but are letters enough? Do they allow individuals to express themselves well? If you feel you’ve always used Emojis more often than just plain text, you should take a look at the keyboard by EmojiWorks’.
