There aren’t many devices on the market that offer a built in Lightning connector for Apple’s latest lineup of products.

I-MEGO Walker Junior noise-canceling headphones review

As a frequent flyer and daily commuter, I’m the perfect candidate for noise-canceling headphones. So, you can imagine my joy when the I-MEGO Walker Junior noise canceling found their way to my cubicle. I have to admit, I’ve felt left out around my office since all my coworkers sport cool headphones, but I think with these bad boys decorating my ears I’ll be inducted into the cool headphones club.

BOOM Movement Spooners headphones review

Want to take your tunes outside with you, but don’t feel like sharing? While BOOM’s excellent Urchin speaker provides water- and shock-resistant music for groups, their Spooners headphones let you keep the party solo while still shaking off dust, water, and a pretty bruising amount of abuse.

Apple’s iPod sales continue to fall flat; what’s next for the popular music player?
