Bowers & Wilkins P3 Mobile Hi-Fi over ear headphones

Sound Cushion

The P3 conforms to the listener’s ears better than other headphones. Designers cushioned the earcups with memory foam, which molds to the ears and creates a seal that helps keep out ambient noise. Bowers & Wilkins P3 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones $200
V-Moda VAMP iPhone amplifier case

Music Master

The VAMP iPhone amplifier doubles listening time while improving the quality of compressed audio. Users connect the lithium-ion-powered case to an iPhone 4 or 4S’s 30-pin port. The system processes digital audio files to sound more like the original recordings. V-Moda VAMP $650
BBQ Guru CyberQ Wifi grill & temperature monitor

Grill Tracker

The CyberQ grill monitor prevents barbecue pits from fizzling out. It’s equipped with a set of heat probes, which track temperature, and a fan, which automatically turns on to act as a bellows when heat drops. BBQ Guru CyberQ Wifi $395 (fan and adapter)
Adidas Puremotion blue golf shoes

On Stable Ground

The firmer a golfer’s stance is, the more likely his shots will fly straight, so designers at Adidas created the most stable golf shoe yet. Taking a cue from barefoot-style sneakers, they widened the forefoot and thinned the sole, which gives toes room to wiggle and grip the ground. Adidas Puremotion $120
White Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale

Wireless Weigh-In

The Aria scale tracks the weight changes of up to eight people. Synced with the Fitbit website over Wi-Fi, the scale saves each user’s weigh-ins and calls up his progress when it senses a number close to his last reading. Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale $130
Black Kenmark Sports Armband Water Bottle & Smartphone Case

Running Buddy

The Kenmark Sports Armband Water Bottle is the first to double as a smartphone case. The 6.4-ounce band holds both a 16-ounce bottle and a phone or MP3 player in a protective sheath. Kenmark Sports Armband Water Bottle $30
Steel FreeKey key ring

Finger Saver

The FreeKey ring won’t pinch a user’s fingers when they’re adding a new key. Instead of prying apart the rings, users pinch a hinged lever on the outer edge of the steel spiral, popping the ring open to slide keys on. The spiral snaps itself securely shut. FreeKey $4.50
White LuminAID Light Camping Lamp

Blow Light

The LuminAID lamp can light up an entire tent and compress to the size of a billfold. Campers inflate the one-quart polycarbonate bag and turn on an LED to create a 35-lumen glow. LuminAID Light From $15
Four Stacked NuForce Cube portable speakers

Square Power

The 2.3-inch, three-watt NuForce Cube is the smallest, loudest portable speaker available. The speaker driver is controlled by a high-strength neodymium magnet, which prevents the entire housing from shaking at high volumes. NuForce Cube $119
White Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760

Quick Switch

Most Bluetooth keyboards can pair with only one device at a time; the Logitech K760 pairs with three. The solar-powered keyboard’s shortcut keys can each remember a different device, so users can switch between typing on their laptop and iPad with a tap. Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 $80
Black Craftsman NEXTEC 12V Extra Capacity Battery with Light

Power Spot

Handymen no longer need to carry a separate flashlight along with their 12-volt power tools. Craftsman engineers added six LEDs to the bottom of their new battery pack, so users have a spotlight when they need one. Craftsman NEXTEC 12V Extra Capacity Battery with Light $35 (available Oct.)
Black Pentax K-30 Durable DSLR Camera

Road Ready

The K-30 is the only consumer DSLR built to weather sandstorms, downpours and other extreme conditions. Pentax designers backed the 16-megapixel camera’s seams and lens mount with dense, water-repellent foam so that dust and moisture can’t get inside. Pentax K-30 $900
