It features custom-designed 12mm dynamic drivers for clear natural audio output. Plus, its unique hybrid acoustic design offers passive noise reduction while its spatial vents reduce that plugged-ear feeling. The earbuds have a battery life of 5 hours and up to 24 hours with the charging case.

Garmin Approach R10

Looking to be the next Tiger Woods? The Garmin Approach R10 is here to help. It is a lightweight portable golf launch monitor designed to help you improve your game at home, indoors, or the driving range.

It is able to detect more than a dozen key metrics – including club head speed, ball speed, swing tempo, ball spin and launch angle – with your every swing. When paired with the Garmin Golf app, you can make use of the Training Mode to recognise strengths and areas of improvement as well as automatically recording video clips to analyse your swing.

FiiO FD3 Pro

For those who cannot afford those expensive in-ear monitors (IEMs), they can take a look at the much more affordable FiiO FD3 Pro. Its semi-open acoustic design is said to allow you to enjoy balanced sounds and stress-free listening.

This Hi-Res Audio certified IEM features a newly-designed 12mm flagship-level dynamic driver with a robust magnetic flux and paired with an ultra-fine copper-clad aluminium voice coil for reproducing delicate details.
