This Week’s Must-Haves: Headphones With Built-In Music Streaming

This week, the Adweek staff is highlighting headphones with built-in music streaming, '90s cartoon couture and a router that'll solve your Wi-Fi woes. Take a look!


Streamz PRO Headphones, $399

So your headphones are already wireless—why not go deviceless, too? Streamz headphones feature built-in Wi-Fi and a 1.6 GHz quad-core Android processor so you can play music directly from more than 150 streaming services—including Spotify and Pandora—without having to connect to a smartphone or computer. Rather play songs from your own collection? The headphones offer up to 32 GB of built-in music storage so you can keep your favorite tunes with you wherever you go. Use the OLED touchscreen displays embedded on each earpiece to control playback, or just tell Streamz what you want to hear next—there's Voxxi voice-activated control built right in.

SteelSeries Nimbus Controller, $49

Heralded as the first gaming controller designed for the new fourth-generation Apple TV, SteelSeries' wireless Nimbus lets you play games like Lego Star Wars and NBA 2K15 as easily as you would on a regular gaming console. With 40-plus hours of battery life, you won't have to worry about it giving out halfway through a Call of Duty marathon; when it is time to juice up, just connect the controller to a Lightning charger. For gaming on the go, it's also compatible with your iPad, iPhone and MacBook.

Calm Down and Wake Up Body Wash, $20

Whether you need to power up for the day ahead (with rosemary and lemongrass) or wind down at night (with ginger and lavender), these 100 percent organic body washes from Plant have you covered. The utilitarian packaging will add a dose of cool to your shower, too.

Moschino x Powerpuff Girls Sweater, $685

The '90s nostalgia is still going strong in 2016, with a reboot of the Cartoon Network cult series The Powerpuff Girls set to hit the small screen this spring. In honor of its return, Moschino designer Jeremy Scott created a capsule collection of accessories and apparel (like the sweater shown here) featuring crime-fighting trio Bubbles, Buttercup and Blossom.

Caruso Wireless Gramophone, $3,033

With its goofy trumpet-shaped speaker, the Caruso wireless gramophone from Italian design house Miniforms is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face. The ceramic speaker and wooden cabinet can be customized in an array of fun colors from pink and yellow to blue and white (there's even a special edition featuring 24k gold plating and 18th century oak). And while the gramophone may look old school, there's a 50 watt Class D amplifier hidden within to ensure high-end sound.

Starry Station, $349

Solve your Wi-Fi woes with this space-age router, aptly named Starry Station. The hub's easy-to-use touchscreen interface shows the status (or "health score") of your Wi-Fi, Internet speed and any connected devices, tracks data usage, alerts you to any possible problems and helps you fix them when they arise. Starry also has built-in parental controls that let you restrict certain devices at preset times, and even runs regular Internet speed checks to ensure you're getting the service speed you're paying for.
