iSounds Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds are perfect for when you're on the go, and don't want cords to get in the way - whether you are traveling, or working out. They're sweatproof headphones that connect to your smartphone or music player over Bluetooth. Once you put them on, you realize how comfortable they are despite the interesting appearance. The iSounds headphones are made of a soft-touch plastic, with hooks that go around your ears to ensure that these headphones won't fall out. The iSounds headphones can connect to two devices at once, allowing you to use them with two smartphones at the same time, or with a computer and smartphone, etc. For example, you could be listening to music on your notebook computer, and then have it pause when your smartphone rings, and seamlessly take the call.
The best part though might be the cost. These compare favorably to the Powerbeats headphones, but cost just a fraction of the price - the iSounds Bluetooth Earbuds are just $35!

With the rumors that Apple will be removing the headphone jack with the introduction of the iPhone 7, many are hoping that wireless Bluetooth headphones and earbuds will be available in a big way come this fall. I ran into Kanoa at CES, makers of an amazing pair of truly wireless Bluetooth earbuds.
With Kanoa, there's no wire connecting the earbuds to your device or to each other. In addition, no wires are needed for charging either, as the earbuds are charges in a wireless case. Kanoa earbuds also allow you to hear the ambient noise around you if you choose - so, when you are out bike-riding and listening to music, you can also hear important cues around you.

In this episode, I bring you a look at one of the coolest Bluetooth speakers I've ever seen - the Monster Superstar Backfloat.
Monster's Superstar Backfloat is rugged--you can spill water on it without any worries. Even cooler, it's been constructed in a such a way that it will float in water. Throw it in the bathtub or pool and you've got your music right with you. Even better? It's also a speakerphone, so you can take your calls without getting out of the water.
We give you a look at the Monster Superstar Backfloat in this episode, and I give you a demo of how it works even when wet. Be prepared for the #WaterDance.

In this video I chat with NBA legend, Shaquille O'Neal, about the new Monster Superstar Backfloat. The Superstar Backfloat is a small, Bluetooth speaker that's waterproof. Pour water on it, submerge it, get it wet, and it will continue performing. Throw it in the pool and it'll float while playing your favorite tracks. Shaq explains the philosophy behind the Superstar Backfloat here!

It's summertime, and we've got a few items we're giving away to bring the fun to a whole new level. Courtesy of AT&T here in Seattle, we've got a Jawbone mini Jambox, Jawbone UP24, and a Bodyguardz tempered glass protective cover for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. Here's a little more on each item and why we think they're perfect for this Summer Bundle Giveaway:
- Jawbone mini Jambox: Okay, for real, who doesn't wanna have music with them when by the pool or at the beach? A lot of us have a seemingly unlimited amount of music accessible by our smartphones and tablets, and the mini Jambox allows you to stream it over Bluetooth. At the next family BBQ, you'll be the star of the show.
- Jawbone UP24: Fitness wearables are all the rage these days, and if you like tracking your stats or are looking for a motivational tool, then it's easy to see why. With the UP24, you can monitor your fitness throughout the day, and even track your calories and water intake. At night, it'll even keep track of how well you are sleeping, which is probably not well if you're out camping in a tent. The device connects to your smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth LE, so the battery lasts a full week, and there's no plugging anything in to sync.
- Bodyguardz Screenguardz Pure: I always thought it was kind of silly for people to protect their smartphone screens with a thin plastic film. The Screenguardz Pure is a super-thin piece of tempered glass that can actually take a real beating, and exceeds the hardness of steel. That's protection.
So, are you ready to enter to win some of that goodness? Simply use the widget below to keep track of your entries!
