Gadget: Beats by Dr Dre

HARD 2 BEAT. Amid rumors that Apple would buy Beats by Dre, the audio company hasn’t stopped releasing great new products. This year sees the launch of the follow-up of PowerBeats earphone, the brainchild of Dr. Dre and basketball superstar LeBron James.


The PowerBeats2 Wireless is probably the best wireless sports earphone out there right now. Its 30-foot Bluetooth connection is powerful enough to deliver the thumping bass sound that the brand is known for. Add a tough and water-resistant design, this snazzy earphone is seriously hard to beat. Rechargeable via USB, it can stand six-hour nonstop playback and is equally excellent when receiving phone calls.
