With all the recent advancements in wireless technology, a hi-fi home audio system has become a necessity. The Libratone Live Speaker ($699.95) sets the bar for single-speaker audio solutions. The Scandinavian design makes it look more like furniture than audio equipment, and the sound quality is top-notch. The speaker comes equipped with Libratone’s FullRoom acoustic technology, AirPlay wireless audio streaming, and digital amplification to pump up the tunes when the party gets going.
When you finally decide to take the leap and buy a pair of over-ear headphones, invest in a decent pair like the WeSC Banjo Headphones ($77). These DJ-style headphones come in eight different colors and pack a mighty punch with 40mm power drivers. Go ahead, you know you want them.
