The Blue Mo-FI Headphones ($350) are built for true music fans. The come in a little heavy, 16.5 ounces, but that's to be expected they contain an onboard audiophile amplifier which provides some of the most accurate sound production you've every heard. Whether your using a smartphone, or high-end equipment, the Mo-Fi will improve the sound by reducing the audio workload on your device. The included battery will charge in 3-4 hours and provide you with about 12 hours of playtime. And if the battery dies the headphones will continue to play in passive mode.

All of the pieces feature diamond quilting filled with Duvetica's finest grey goose down for maximum thermal insulation. Junya then adds subtle details like corduroy and leather.

The 2015 Vencer Sarthe ($350K) is the latest supercar coming out of the Netherlands.

If features a 6.3-liter supercharged V8 that pushes 622 horses and 618 lb-ft of torque. This kind of muscle will get you from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds.

If you love "The Sweet Science", then you're sure to appreciate At The Fights ($). American writers have a longstanding fascination with the primal contests that take place within the ropes, as we as the world of crazy carnivals which exists outside of them. From rundown neighborhood gyms where the local youth vent their anger at the world to star studded casinos in exotic locales around the world, they have chronicled some unforgettable tales. Here there is dissipation and determination, great champs and punch-drunk has beens regaling anyone who will listen their tales of when they could have been a contender. Even those not particularly interested in boxing will love this book as it is a story of humanity packed with tales of success and failure, haunting.
