Beats By Dre’s Powerbeats Pro series, a callback to their earlier, sportier era — but with a way sleeker design — really can rival Apple’s newest AirPods. Like the AirPods, they’re truly wireless, and the look is better than ever; they’re slimmed down so that wearing them doesn’t automatically telegraph a trip to the gym. They also made the fit more secure, with their earhooks, which aid a great deal in keeping these earphones where they need to be. Beats By Dre also improved the sound, dimming the harmonic distortion way down (don’t worry; bass still kicks, hard) and they added an H1 chip for the most seamless pairing. They’re water-resistant (you can splash but don’t take them swimming), and, perhaps best of all, these lead the pack in battery life.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 is an amazing solution to those who are looking for the best of a laptop and a tablet at once. It has an Intel 10th-generation core i5 processor, 8GB memory and 128GB of SSD storage. Altogether, this means it will be a quick, reliable and contemporary machine. It’s actually double the speed of the previous Surface Pro 6, bringing you closer to laptop functionality. Microsoft upgraded the graphics card, too, and finally added a USB-C port for fast charging and data transfer. The real highlight is the 12.3-inch touchscreen though, which lets you alternate between laptop and tablet functions, depending on your needs of the day. If you’re prepping materials for a meeting or headed to the office, you’ve got that laptop capability; if you’re just going through emails or maybe browsing through Netflix, you’ve got your tablet. Efficient and serious, while always light and sometimes playful, the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 really has it all.

There are a number of reasons to get a projector instead of a massive 4K TV for your home entertainment center (or outdoor theater). To begin with, they’re way more compact — they won’t take up a whole wall in your living room or apartment; it’s part of a shelf, at most. But the best reason is the size of the screen they project, in the case of the BenQ TH685 1080p DLP Projector, that’s 300 inches! It needs a minimum of 2.46 feet of distance and works at a maximum of 31.8 feet, which is an incredible range. And it’s working with 3,500 lumens of brightness DLP image technology, and it’s HDR-capable, for crisp visuals, especially for gaming. Speaking of gaming, there’s a specific gaming mode, a 1.3x zoom for flexible throw distances and an 8.3 ms fast response time for low input lag, meaning gaming in real time. If you’re a gamer, movie fan, or just want the biggest best viewing experience, the BenQ TH685 projects a great time.
