Today in Gear: Sony’s QX30 camera lens for smartphones, Dyson’s smart vaccuum, Elijah Craig’s 23-year-old whiskey, and much more.



Sony QX30 and QX1 Camera Lens
Impress your Instagram followers with Sony’s newest line of smartphone camera lenses, a followup to last year’s QX launch. The QX30 and QX1 companion lenses pair with any Android or iOS phone, upgrading the devices to legitimate cameras. When turned off, the QX30 contracts for discreet storage; when fully cranked, it features a 30x optical zoom, f/3.5-6.3 aperture range, and proprietary Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. $350

Elijah Craig 23 Bourbon
Though older, this 23-year-old Elijah Craig single barrel bourbon is the heir to last year’s 21 release. Some may be intimidated by the powerful wood notes that come with such long aging, but fans of old bourbon will delight in this rare breed, which hails straight from Heaven Hill in Kentucky. $199

Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones
Bose has released what they consider their “best around-ear noise canceling headphone ever”. The QuietComfort 25 benefits from 30 years of ongoing research: the new ear-cups feature microphones both inside and out to better measure unwanted noise, and fold up to a more compact size; a more finely tuned active EQ improves clarity and accuracy; and an inline remote-and-mic duo make for a seamless transition between smartphone media and calls from your mother. $300
