The electronics titans square off in a tangled tale of mobile technology, centered on Apple's iPhone
Monoprice's Noise Canceling Headphones are about 70 percent as good as the Bose QC15s for a little more than a third of the price.
Bose says Beats' Studio and Studio Wireless headphones, soon to be owned by Apple, copy five of its patents.
Despite some downsides, including a high price, the Bose QuietComfort 20 offers the best noise-canceling in an in-ear headphone and should tempt frequent travelers looking for a more compact alternative to a full-size NC headphone, such as the Bose QuietComfort 15.
While they may not be quite as comfortable as Bose's ultrapopular QC 15 headphones, the Harman Kardon NCs offer slightly better sound and have a built-in rechargeable battery to power the active noise-cancellation circuitry.
The Motorola Pure H15 is an attractive and comfortable headset, but the audio quality could be improved.
The G-Dock and G-Drive introduce a new level of flexibility in external storage, and performance is fast.
A company called Noise Free says it showcased to Apple its noise-canceling technology, and then the iPhone maker responded by using it for its own good.
Researchers have found a rather elegant way to improve data speeds on existing fiber technology, according to the BBC.
They're refurbished, but also backed by a one-year warranty. You'd pay at least $100 for them elsewhere.
The Mercedes-Benz S550 sedan was already a tech powerhouse, but the new Coupe version takes things further with Active Curve Tilting and an iPhone mirroring feature.
