Sennheiser PXC 300 Headphones

Sennheiser PXC 300 Headphones

We don’t find in-ear ’phones ideal for traveling with – it’s too easy for them to fall out or get snagged as you move around – so we prefer a proper set of headphones for listening to music on the move. Sennheiser’s PXC 300 headphones provide good sound quality at a nice price, and they’re also designed with portability in mind. The headphones fold up when not in use so you can easily slip them into a pocket, and the headband and folding joints are reinforced with steel. The headphones are also provided with a rugged traveling case for extra protection. But the best bit: they come with noise-reduction technology to blank out external noise. Perfect for plane journeys.

SlingMedia Slingbox Classic

sling media slingbox front

If you’re on holiday and you can’t bear the thought of missing the Olympics, then the Slingbox is the answer to your prayers. You leave the Slingbox at home, hooked up to a DVR or your aerial, and use it to stream your favourite programs across the internet so that you can watch them anywhere in the world - as long as you’ve got Internet access or a 3G phone. The Slingbox is sold with SlingPlayer software which that lets you watch programmes on a Mac or PC laptop when you’re traveling. However, if you want to use it with a mobile you’ll need to pay an extra £20 for the optional SlingPlayer Mobile software - and the bad news is that it doesn’t currently work with the iPhone.

Price £100
