Bang & Olufsen's Wireless Beolab 18 Speakers ($6590) are the company's latest update to their most successful loudspeaker, the BeoLab 8000. You can see that the Beolab 18 and 8000 share the same bones, but the 18's have clearly marked out their own identity with some notable features. This includes a front panel made from 21 wooden lamellas that come in black, white and solid oak. The speaker has two 4-inch midrange drivers mated with a 160 watt amplifier. These speakers support Olufsens new wireless platform, WiSA. WiSA is capable of streaming 5.2-5.8 GhZ with 24bit audio, up to 96KHz. Because these speakers utilize smaller 4" drivers you may want to pair them with the new BeoLab 19 ($3395).
They've been described as feeling like taking a walk on air, but surely just eliminating the possibility of painful blisters and looking absolutely boss would be enough? Talented specialists at Adidas launched their new line of ZX 8000 Boost shoes earlier this year to raving reviews, not surprising with its astonishing 'Boost' midsole and a Back to the Future retro vibe. The latest silhouette added to the Adidas line up makes a huge impact. The explosive adidas ZX8000 Boost 'Solar Red' ($190) is seriously hot, featuring a striking red upper with reflective detail, contrasting luxurious black suede toe and white EVA sole. Don't just imagine feeling ultra-comfortable and content on your next stride out, make it happen right now!
The Marshal Major Pitch Black Headphones ($87), will provide you with beautiful highs and deep bass. With their super software ear cushions, the Pitch Blacks are made to be your all day headphones. They come with 3.5mm and 6.3mm adapters so you can plug them into your stereo system or use them along with your iPod. Because these guys can play sound from 20Hz all the way up to 20kHz you can play any type of music and never be left wanting.
The Nike Rosherun NM W SP - Obsidian & Black ($159) take the old school silhouette and updates it with a synthetic taped upper, tonal piping and laces, while the heel counter features Nike lettering surrounded by a cool mint colorway. The sole is a one piece natural motion sole unit with flex grooves for a comfortable running or walking experience. These kicks would make pretty much anything in your wardrobe look cool.
The word I would use to describe the Jaguar F-Type R ($100,000) is smooth. Its lines evoke effortless aggression. You can almost hear it laughing at the idea that any wind could slow it down. This beautifully styled ride is powered by a 5.0 liter 550 horsepower supercharged V8 that delivers 502 lb-ft from just 3,500 rpm. For your money you'll get a car that can accelerate form 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds. Not too shabby. Additional features include a 186 mph top speed, 20 inch Gyrodyne silver alloy wheels, super performance braking with red calipers, sport suspension, and switchable exhaust.
