1. Sennheiser RS 220 wireless hi-fi headphones

Sennheiser's RS 220 wireless headphones genuinely surprised us: their sound quality is easily on par with the better wired models we've heard, and they have the advantage of being completely wireless. We didn't experience any drop-outs or loss of sound ...

2. Shure SE315 earphones

The SE315’s design and ergonomics are as good as it gets for in-ear-canal headphones without stepping up to custom models. The SE315’s sound quality is almost as good as its design, with a neutral balance and great detail, missing only ...

3. Sony XBA-3 in-ear headphones

Sony's high-end in-ear headphones are a surprising package. These headphones sound impressively musical, but could be slightly more detailed in higher frequencies. They're well constructed apart from an annoying cord design.

5. Bose AE2i headphones

Bose’s AE2i headphones, which now have an in-line volume control for iPod and iPhone support, are reasonably well constructed and comfortable. They also sound good, but they’re expensive and lack Bose’s signature noise cancelling -- which appears on the company’s ...

6. Bose QuietComfort 15 headphones

Bose’s QuietComfort 15 headphones aren’t the most expensive the company has, but we think they have the equal best noise cancelling circuitry of any Bose headphones. These headphones are perfectly suited to the executive traveller or frequent jet-setter but are ...

7. Bang & Olufsen EarSet 3i headphones

B&O’s iPhone- and iPod-friendly EarSet 3i earphones look great, are well built and have clear sound. If ‘that B&O look’ is what you’re going for the EarSet 3i earphones are perfect, but they’re a little light on bass and might ...

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!

Mark Escubio

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.
