Forget Apple’s AirPods, if you want genuinely wireless earphones for every occasion then we recommend the Jabra Elite 65t (£149). Unlike most of Jabra’s efforts, they’re less concerned with the gym and running and more tailored for everyday use. They sound, and look, great and you get five hours of use from a full charge and a further two from the charging case. Unlike some wireless headphones we’ve tested, we had no audio and video sync issues when watching Netflix and while they’re not designed with running in mind, they’re secure enough to be usable all the same

The Dell XPS 13 (From £1,199) is the definitive MacBook-killer. This 13-inch laptop weighs a mere 1.2kg yet is powerful enough to deal with a heavy workload. There are numerous configuration options, including non-glare screens and touchscreen versions. The tiny 4mm screen bezel means it has a very small footprint, making it easy to fit in any bag. We’ll be testing the 2019 edition, with the webcam thankfully now positioned above the display, soon.
Price: £429 | Check price on Amazon.co.uk
At £429, the Garmin Forerunner 935 is for those who take running seriously. But if you do, it is worth investing in it – not the least because of the device’s impressive battery life, which lasts for up to two weeks on standby mode, and up to 24 hours when consistently monitoring activity. The watch can track a variety of activities including swims, cycles or rounds of golf, in addition to displaying various training options. It also provides details on heart rates, lactate thresholds or recovery times. All of which is packed in 49g; a relatively lightweight gadget, therefore, that makes for a complete running watch.
Price: £185 | Check price on Amazon.co.uk
Great sound and noise isolation (for up to 37dB of external noise) together with a secure, comfortable fit and detachable cables make Shure’s SE425 (£185) our current top in-ears pick. Individual tweeters and mid/bass drivers for each ear deliver sound that’s dynamic and punchy with expression in the midrange, brilliance in the high-end and wallop in the low-end. You won’t be disappointed.
Price: £499 | Check price on Amazon.co.uk
Sonos has long been the go-to brand for multiroom speakers, and the Play:5 (£499) confirms why. This understated-looking speaker easily fills rooms with rich sounds and its 3.5mm audio socket means you can also plug in your favourite non-streaming audio device. Sonos has opened up a lot more in recent years – it now also supports Spotify Connect. On sound quality, Sonos now sits side-by-side with traditional hifi thanks to impressive bass, dynamics and fidelity.

Samsung’s Q900 delivers on the company’s ambitious promise of a 8K TV that’s ready to buy now. Coming in three sizes (85-, 75- and 65-inch versions), it steps up the HDR performance, hitting peak brightness levels of 4,000 nits, which means that content comes out exactly as its creators intended. The design exudes Samsung’s usual high standards and the 15ms input lag makes the Q900 perfect for gaming. Most important, as you’d expect, is the Q900’s spectacular upscaling via its Quantum 8K Processor. In short, it’s the best LCD TV we’ve tested.
