Magnets in Skunk Juice headphones protect your player

Not only will the headphones save your connectors and your ears but your computer as well

Ever have your headphones on and then got them caught on something while moving, causing them to rip out of your ears? It looks like Skunk Juice earbuds are a solution to this problem. They use the same basic concept that MacBook chargers use, a magnetic connection that comes free when tugged too hard, but with earbuds. This lets them break free easily without damaging the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Not only will the headphones save your connectors and your ears but your computer as well. If you forget you're plugged in and move from your computer quickly the headphones simply unclip without dragging your laptop to the floor, and to its potential untimely demise.

Skunk Juice headphones also let you link together multiple pairs with no other accessories except the headphones themselves, making sharing music simple and without having to surrender one of your earbuds. This is great as long as your friends all have the same headphones.

Check out the funny video for a complete demonstration of some realistic situations you might find yourself in.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
