DJI Spark is the new mini selfie drone #SeizeTheMoment

Sony MDR-1000X Noise Cancelling Headphones Review

For many years, Bose has been dominating the narratives on active noise cancelling (ANC) headphones with its QuietComfort series. While there are many other ANC headphones in the market – from Plantronics’ BackBeat Pro 2 to Sennheiser’s PXC 550 wireless – ask any frequent travellers and they will swear by the Bose QuietComfort ANC headphones. This might now change when Sony announces its MDR-1000x ANC headphones. It isn’t Sony’s first ANC headphones but when people start recommending me the MDR-1000x after hearing me rave about the Bose QC35, I knew…
