No cable? No problem. If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, you can watch thousands of movies and TV episodes (in 4K!) with this little doodad. (Bonus: It even works with Alexa, so you can finally control your TV with just the sound of your voice.)

Plattan ADV Wireless Headphones

171123_PICKS_Headphones

For the style conscious, these Plattans are slim, sleek, and easy to use—and one of the few pairs of over-the-ear headphones out there that won’t make you look like a total dork.

Amazon Echo

171123_PICKS_Echo

The second generation of the Echo now comes in a range of fabrics, has a smaller size, and better sound. It feels more like an oversize coffee mug that nestles easily on your kitchen countertop, and less like a vape machine from Tron. Good for anyone who wants to let Alexa into his or her life.

BeatsX Wireless In-Ear Headphones

171123_PICKS_BeatsHeadphones

With stellar sound and eight-plus hours of battery life, BeatsX wireless headphones are pretty hard to beat. Perfect for workouts and anyone who wants to live life untethered.
