During the Samsung Unpacked event, the company’s next-generation earbuds were unveiled, the Galaxy Buds Pro. Featuring immersive sound, excellent call quality, intelligent Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and enhanced connectivity across your devices. Today, special cases modeled after the Anycall SGH-T100 and the SGH-E700 from the early 2000s were announced, but unfortunately, both of them are only available at select locations in South Korea until January 31st.
Limited to just a single unit worldwide, Caviar’s AirPods Max “Golden White” just might be the most expensive version yet at $108,000 USD. Why is it so expensive? Well, the luxury retailer covered Apple’s latest wireless headphones in 750g of 18K gold and wrapped the headband in white crocodile leather. For a finishing touch, they added two 18L gold rings with Caviar inscription. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there have been no audio upgrades.

Let’s face it, even though most wireless earbuds put function over form, it’s refreshing to see a pair that think outside the box, like Sevy by designer Sathiswaran Pon. Aside from its design, it features touch gestures on the surface of the earbuds and can also be controlled with a companion app. For a better fit, Sevy is designed to fit snugly inside your ear canal, and should there be any issues, several different ear tips are included.

Apple may officially unveil PowerBeats 4 at WWDC in June, that is unless…the event is canceled, but whatever the case may be, a few images of these wireless headphones have already leaked. Available in white, black, and red colors, this updated model will boast an upgraded H1 chip, which is also found in the AirPods Pro, and a larger battery that offers up to 15-hours of continuous playtime.
JBL is best known for their audio products and they’re now exploring a sustainable, solar-powered headphone, called the JBL REFLECT Eternal. This device combines Exeger’s revolutionary light converting material into a stylish form-factor with JBL’s legendary Pro Sound technology. Unlike normal solar cells, which require a large surface area and are optimized only for outdoor use, Exeger’s innovative Powerfoyle material is specially engineered to generate power with indoor light as well as indirect sunlight.
