  • Google Stadia

    This one is for early adopters only. Google Stadia is a super cool platform that lets users stream games via the web instead of owning a costly gaming PC or console.

    So far the device can’t play games in the highest fidelity possible, but in practice, it works well and the cost for entry is relatively low.

    Google only sells the Stadia Premiere Edition that is priced at $169 and includes the company’s first-party controller and a Chromecast Ultra so users can play games on their TV.

  • Jaybird Tarah

    These headphones are Jaybird’s sporty wireless model. They use the popular neck bud form factor, have IPX7 water and sweat proofing and a microphone for making calls.

    They have a six-hour battery life, but you can add an additional hour charge in as short as 10 minutes. There’s even a tiny clip you attach to the device’s cord so that if they fall out of your ears when you’re getting physical, they won’t go far.
