Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed wireless earbuds

When it comes to gaming headsets, even the best wireless earbuds aren't usually the gear of choice for hardcore gamers. They tend to suffer from latency issues, and Bluetooth connectivity isn't always available on gaming desktops.

But not anymore. The new Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed wireless earbuds aim to solve this problem by offering gamers another way to connect while still being able to hear their favorite games and their teammates in multiplayer titles.

For $200, you get a pair of the new Razer buds, as well as a USB-C 2.4GHz RF adapter (with a USB-A adapter as well) to connect to your computer or console.

Razer attests that the earbuds will drop latency to 40ms (in comparison to Bluetooth's 60ms) in the aptly-named Gaming Mode. But that's hardly the buds' biggest draw. They boast THX-certified audio with active noise cancellation. You can get up to 7 or 8 hours of listening via Bluetooth, and an additional 24-hour battery boost thanks to the included wireless charging case. The Razer Chroma RGB lighting on each bud can be customized to your liking.

These buds aren't just a good option for gamers, though. Thanks to how versatile they are when it comes to connectivity, you can use them as earbuds with your phone or tablet for hands-free chatting or watching your favorite shows and movies. And if you're the type of person who likes to connect to multiple devices at once, these buds will let you do that. All that in a sleek black case, and for just $200? They're well worth the price of entry, especially if you're a hardcore gamer.

Dyson Zone headphones

Dyson Zone headphones

The best noise-canceling headphones block out unwanted sound, while the best air purifiers trap dust and pollutants from your environment. What if you combined the two for an ultra-powerful combination of great sound and expert filtration tech? 

You'd get the Dyson Zone headphones, naturally, from the same folks that offer everything from vacuums, air purifiers, hair dryers, and much more. 

These headphones pull double duty, saddling a pair of over-the-ear headphones with a detachable visor that acts as a personal air filter. They use air compression technology to draw in fresh air by way of the ear cups, which are quite large, with multiple vents. Air is funneled into the visor with a set of mesh carbon filters, where you can then take a breath of crisp, fresh air.

Dyson claims the Dyson Zone headphones can capture up to 99% of particles. They tackle two types of pollution: noise and air, making them a great option for anyone who lives in congested urban areas. Plus, they boast a battery life of up to 50 hours with additional app-based customization.

(Note that these Dyson headphones are not designed to protect against COVID-19. For that, you'll need an N95 face mask.)

One reviewer called them the "best headphones of 2023", gushing over their quick setup, design and functionality. "Get these if you can," they wrote. "All of this is great even without the filtration system or the ANC on board. Even without these features, they stand on their own, which is jaw-dropping."
