What we like about these wireless headphones from Sol Republic comes down to the design. Rather than cramming all the technology and hardware into the earbud itself resulting in unwanted bulk or an oversized fit, the design of the Relay Sports Wireless places the batteries & electronics into 2 pods on the connecting wire you wear around your neck. This also makes it easier to pull one out for conversation without missing a step.

To prepare you for Apple’s phasing-out of the headphone jack, we recommend BeSound’s Thunder earbuds. These noise-cancelling MFi certified buds plug straight into the Lightning port on your device and offer a built-in mic plus an “Aware-mode” that cancels out most but not all ambient sound, keeping you safer when you’re out on the streets.

As suspected, the new iPhone 7 is water resistant, has stereo speakers, lost the headphone jack and has a brand new camera.  The improved camera has optical image stabilization, a 1.8 aperture lens, and a 12 megapixel sensor that is 60 percent faster.  So some nice improvements there.  Design-wise, it’s nearly the same as the iPhone 6, however, the new Jet Black color is a stunner with its shiny piano gloss finish. A new A10 fusion processor has a four-core CPU for a performance boost.
