Microsoft’s new Surface Headphones, which are set for release later this year, deliver on many levels. For starters, they boast active noise cancellation and on-ear touch controls so you can swipe through tracks and adjust the volume with ease. Then there’s the automatic pause/play when you pull them off and put them back on, which is a lot like a pair of Apple AirPods. Very cool is the fact that the noise cancellation can be adjusted by turning the ring on one of the sides. The cans are also packed with the Cortana virtual assistant so you can rattle off requests while you wear them. Then there’s the design, which we have to admit is nothing short of beautiful. Microsoft really knocked it out of the park here. Assuming the audio quality is as impressive as promised, we see a pair of these in our future.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
