"With Q, Sky really has never been better, but it has also never been more expensive"

Sky Q

Sky has touted its new Q box and service as the future of TV, and it's a claim that's not far from the truth. Whether you want to watch in another room, or take your content with you on-the-go, Q works seamlessly, with few hiccups.

There's plenty of 4K content too, which instantly makes it an attractive proposition. However, as you might expect, Sky Q doesn't come cheap.

"As a pair of noise-cancelling headphones with the added bonus of wireless Bluetooth, we can’t quibble with what’s on offer"

Lindy BNX-60

For the price you might expect these headphones to disappoint. Instead they offer a balanced and detailed sound, making for a pleasant listen. With noise-cancelling and wireless performance both very capable, these sturdy Lindy headphones have few faults.

"If you want a powerful but portable wireless speaker, and this fits your budget, then this is where to spend your money"

Harman Kardon Go + Play

We liked the original Go + Play and the latest incarnation continues the good work. It's a huge speaker - a hi-fi handbag of sorts - with a power befitting its size, but there's also finesse here too.

For a powerful wireless speaker that's also portable, this is a great option.
