An updated Google Nexus 7 ($229) will be released on July 30th and based on the specs it looks like the decision on what tablet to get just got a little bit harder. The updated Nexus 7 comes with a 7" screen, a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels, 2GB or RAM, Android 4.3, and storage options of 16 and 32GB. Outside of giving an inch away in screen size to the iPad Mini, the Nexus bests the Mini in almost every other category. Its two major advantages are screen resolution and $100 savings on base models. Expect the Nexus to give the Mini and the Galaxy Tab 3 a run for their money.

The ear cups are made from hand-selected Zebrano wood that have ear pads made from premium lambskin or a leather-free microsuede. Each headphone comes with a cable, XLR adapters, wood care kit, luxury case, and a personalized frequency response graph.
