Review: This are fairly loud, comfortable headphones. Great for tracking
and also for casual listening. However, casual listener beware:
the 1/8" audio jack is becoming increasingly rare.
Apple AirpodsIn-ear Headphones
Features: expremely portable, wireless.
Review: The pill-like smoothness of the case makes pocketing these natural.
The case charges and durably protects. The buds themselves are comfortable
and have solid low-end bass.
Apple Airpods MaxOver-ear Headphones
Features: sound cancellation.
Review: Somewhat limited dynamically and with volume, the AirPods Max
are nevertheless comfortable and have good noise cancellation,
making them ideal for travel. Cons: expensive, only consumer-grade sound quality.

Review: Jambox has unfortunately gone out-of-business. But, these
are durable small speakers with fashionable aesthetic.
Adam A7XPro Monitor Speaker
Features: Full-body woofer, detailed tweeter.
Review: These Adam speakers are second to none. The pro audiophile
would love these at a computer workstation or for a home theater.
Yamaha HS7Monitor Speaker
Features: a flat, natural frequency response.
These are middle-of-the line speakers. Not as expensive as the Adam A7X,
they are also in a class of their own for their unaffected sound.
