The AirPods Max, Apple's first over-ear headphones, dominated the news this week — we got a chance to test them out. But they weren't the only products worth talking about this week. Here are the highlights.
Logitech Circle View Doorbell
Logitech announced a new Circle View video doorbell this week, the first video doorbell to support HomeKit Secure Video, Apple's new video standard that rolled out last year. This means that it's the only video doorbell that currently can do things like show a live video feed on your Apple TV.
Roland Aerophone Pro
The Aerophone Pro is the next-generation version of the original Aerophone, and it's the company's most advanced digital wind instrument to date. It has a refined design along with a bunch of additional sonic capabilities. It'll be available next month (January 2021).
Scuf H1 Gaming Headset
Scuf is best known for its customizable gaming controllers, but the company just announced its first customizable gaming headset. The H1 is a wired gaming headset that comes in two base colors, white or black. From there, you can customize its earpad covers, its earpad material (leather or hybrid) and even its mics.
Sonos Sub Superpowers
For anybody who has (or is looking to build out) a Sonos home theater system, one of the most requested features has been the ability to add a second Sub. Sonos has listened. You'll soon be able to add a second Sub to your current Sonos system, so long as it's a Gen 3 model (which was released this past June).
MOFT Snap-On Stand & Wallet for iPhone 12
Third-party gadget makers are slowly trickling out accessories that work with the iPhone 12's MagSafe. One of the newest ones, this Snap-On Stand & Wallet by MOFT, is one of the only alternatives to Apple's own $59 MagSafe minimalist wallet. It's not made of genuine leather, like Apple's option, but MOFT's newest also doubles as a flip-out stand. Plus it's only $30.
Samsung MicroLED 110-inch TV
Samsung announced its line of MicroLED TVs almost a year ago at CES. The advanced technology is more akin to OLED than LCD, and it's able to deliver an exceptional picture with bright colors and supreme contrast. This gigantic 110-inch model is one of the first MicroLED TVs that Samsung is releasing. It's only available in Korea right now and, well, it's expensive.
Price: ~ $156,000
Sonix Magnetic Link Charger
Sonix has made a cheaper alternative to Apple's MagSafe Charger. It works pretty much the same, although it won't wirelessly charge the iPhone 12 up to its 15-watt potentially. It also doesn't come with a wall adapter (but then again, neither does Apple's MagSafe Charger).
