Bragi Dash review: wireless earbuds are still an unfinished dream
I hate wired headphones. it's my own fault, I admit, I just really don't mix well with wires. I crumple them until they tangle and (inevitably) fray, and I remain blind to them until the moment they trip me or yank my devices off the table.

Choose from which direction you want to drown out the world with the Hero headphones
It's great to have a set of headphones to block out the world. But what if you want to let a few voices in? That's the concept behind the Stages Hero, a set of noise-canceling headphones we spotted at CES in Las Vegas on Thursday. the headphones include a circle of eight mics that lets you choose a specific direction from which to hear ambient sound. So if you're talking to the co-worker who sits in the cubicle across from you, but you want to block the co-workers on either side of you, you can select to hear ambient noise from your left and right sides, but not your front. you can also set key words ("Hey, Ashlee") and program specific voices that will break through the ambient sound.

Courage: Apple's AirPods Are Still Without a release Date
When Apple killed the headphone jack on the latest iPhone, we were assured it would be okay, and Apple was really just being "courageous." not only was there an adapter in the box, but Apple was releasing the AirPod wireless earbuds. for a mere $159, you'd never have to worry about wires again. However, they still haven't been released.
