The Speak 750's (available on Amazon and Lazada) premium audio system is said to pick up sounds seamlessly, while its full duplex audio feature allows both sides of the conversation to be transmitted at the same time.

Thus, this speakerphone allows everyone in the room to speak and be heard simultaneously. It can also be paired with up to eight devices and connect to two devices at the same time.

It comes with myriad connectivity options including an HDMI port, a USB-A port, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. A built-in battery offers up to 11/2 hours of playback.

It boosts a 144Hz refresh rate with one-millisecond response time to keep frames sharp. The connections include a DisplayPort 1.2 and two HDMI 1.4 ports.

You might be washing your hands regularly, but how often do you clean your device cables?

With the Energea Fibratough cable (available on Shopee), you do not have to worry about bacteria on the surface. The cable material has anti-microbial nano silver ions that are said to eliminate up to 99.9 per cent of harmful surface pathogens.

Apart from the USB-C-to-Lightning connection, the Fibratough is also available in USB-A-to-Lightning option.

Their custom-tuned 2.25-inch full-range drivers are said to provide louder and richer audio than their predecessor, according to Creative. They come with a 3.5mm jack port and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
