Phiaton-PS-20-BTs

Any time we wear a pair of headphones that aren’t wireless, we feel like one of those kids on a backpack leash you see at the mall. They get tangled, knotted and—with a quick turn of the head—can come flying off like that kid when he catches a whiff of Cinnabon. The PS 20 BT’s from Phiaton deliver the kind of performance we want in a cable-free package. Besides the fact that the audio quality is top of the line, the PS 20 BT’s have built-in Bluetooth v3.0 so you can take a call on the fly without pulling the old switcheroo. The “half in-ear” design gives you one of the rarest features you’ll ever find in a pair of ear-buds as well—comfort. The bass feels like you’re seeing Deadmau5 live thanks to Phiaton’s “MaxBass Reflex,” and the overall package is more drool-inducing than, well, Cinnabon.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
