College has started for another year. For many students, this means living away from home for the first time, so it's important to get your priorities straight. Like how are you going to listen to music? IFA, Europe's top tech show, has shown us the way with a litany of musical products that Irish students can stick in their ear-holes.
Panasonic launched its HD605N headphones, which adapt to environments with three noise cancelling modes. According to Panasonic, these cans deliver 20 hours of continuous playback on full charge. Quick Charge fires up the batteries for two hours of play.
Panasonic also unveiled its SC-UA30 sound system: 180¡ tunes, pumped out of two 13cm woofers. You can hook up the system over Bluetooth, adding sound effects to songs through Panasonic's MAX Juke App.Ê
Sony was also on a noise cancelling spree in Berlin with its WH-1000XM3 headphones. Other new Sony sound products include MDR-Z7M2 headphones and the SRS-XB501G portable party speaker. Sony's WF-SP900 wireless sports headphones are waterproof.
Sony has made its products compatible with Amazon Alexa, so you can order your digital assistant to play Dua Lipa through a soundbar, when you should probably go to a lecture.
