Dr. Dre's new headphones

An audio quality beat-down.

"Beats by Dr. Dre" is the name of a new set of high-performance headphones conceived and designed by the famous music producer himself in conjunction with Monster, the company already well known for its Monster Cable and Monster Power home entertainment products.

In development for two years, the headphones were extensively tested by Dr. Dre and Monster’s head engineer, Noel Lee. Lee, who has worked at Monster since its birth 30 years ago, said: “Listening to music with Beats headphones is a true ear-opening experience; users will enjoy not only their comfort and style, but their sonic performance that is unequalled in any other headphone.”

The headphones will come with many extras including a carrying case, anti-microbial cleaning cloths, a Monster-brand headphone cable as well as an adapter to allow the headphones to be connected to professional-grade audio equipment.

The Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are available now for a recommended retail price of $599.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
