Travel

By Kim Taylor

Here are six tech items to smooth over your travels this holiday season, whether it’s better speakers, improved headphones or an armband to simultaneously tote your luggage (or run after planes and trains) while you listen to epic chase music.

The Phoenix 2 is a remarkably lightweight, portable speaker that enables you to bring the party wherever you land, whether it’s poolside, on a cruise, or at a ski resort. The original Phoenix was so well received that this upgrade features a natural tech evolution: a built-in microphone and the ability to place and receive phone calls. It’s sturdy and the perfect travel size; available in black, red, blue and white at http://www.beaconaudio.com.

The iLuv MobiOut rechargeable speaker gets the snowboarding, beach or pool party started during your winter vacay with a rubberized, splash resistant exterior, sealed controls, and Bluetooth speaker with Jump-Start technology. Available in black, blue, red or white, this hands-free delight fits easily into luggage and ensures that you can rock out upon arrival: http://www.iluv.com.

The Sol Republic Tracks On Ear Headphones are artful in every respect, fusing cutting-edge technology with optimum fit and gorgeous aesthetics. Headbands are virtually indestructible (so pack them without worry), high def V sound engines deliver clear sound, and an in-line mic + music control is compatible with most Apple, Android and Windows devices. http://www.solrepublic.com.

The iPod + iPhone Armband Case from E-Case enables you to relax hands free in flight, or while moving through airports with luggage in tow. It’s great for working out upon arrival too. Enabling hands-free movement and available next month, the case is waterproof for all weather situations and even has space for your key. Find it at http://www.E-Case.com.

The iPhone 5 Cyan Mosquito Print Case from Alexandra Taylor Collections protects your phone in the loveliest way possible, featuring a hardcover rubberized finish and gorgeous mosquito print to reflect the Nothing But Nets donation your purchase enables. Check out the other phone cover styles, ties, scarves and more at http://www.alexandrataylor.net and help prevent malaria.

You can personalize Sodacase phone covers with your own images of loved ones, friends and pets culled from social media or your camera. So when you whip out your phone, voila! – you’ll see a lovely reminder of the folks who make you happy. Get started on your gallery at http://www.sodacase.com.

Safe and happy travels to you and yours this season, and all throughout the New Year.
