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.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
