Focal Utopia



The Focal Utopia over-ear headphones are the French audio company's flagship. Powered by a pair of 40mm Beryllium M-shaped dome drivers, it is said to reproduce audio signals of unrivalled clarity.

It also looks as good as it sounds, by using high-quality materials such as carbon fibre for its yoke, and lambskin leather for its ear cushions and headband.

Sony FDR-X3000R


$799, available this month

For those looking to take sharp videos of their sky-diving vacations, check out the Sony FDR-X3000R action camera.

With its Balanced Optical SteadyShot feature, you can take 4K action videos with less camera shake. It comes with an underwater housing that is rust-proof, shock-proof and water-proof down to 60m. It also comes with a live-view remote controller so you know what you are shooting.

Razer DeathAdder Elite


$109.90, available next month

Gaming-gear maker Razer claims its new DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse has the fastest optical sensor in the world.

Armed with a new eSports-grade 16,000-dots-per-inch optical sensor and a tracking speed of 450 inches per second, it is said to have a resolution accuracy of 99.4 per cent, letting gamers deliver more killer shots in the virtual world.

It also comes with Razer's all-new Mechanical Mouse Switches that offer a fast response time and better durability of up to 50 million clicks.

PQI i-Power 9000QC



If you have a phobia of seeing your smartphone's battery going flat, carry the PQI i-Power 9000QC with you. About the size of a deck of cards, this power bank offers great portability and looks sleek as well with its metallic casing.

Its 9,000mAh battery can charge the iPhone 7 4.5 times. With dual-USB output ports, it can charge two devices simultaneously. The i-Power supports QuickCharge 2.0 (QC2) technology to quickly charge supported QC2 devices.

Boldr Journey Chronograph



After a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign earlier this year, local watch maker Boldr's Journey Chronograph is in stores now.

Powered by Seiko's VK64 hybrid quartz and mechanical movement, it features a unique domed lens protecting the watch face. This lens scatters and breaks the light to create a soft and even tone on the watch face.

With their designs inspired by vintage aviator watches, the three models of Journey Chronograph are named after mechanical aircraft of yesteryear - Sopwith, Wasp and Warhawk.

BlackBerry DTEK50



The world's most secure Android smartphone - at least, according to BlackBerry - is in Singapore.

The DTEK50 is said to combine BlackBerry's unique security, privacy and productivity solutions with the full Android Marshmallow 6.0 experience in a single package.

It comes with a 5.2-inch full high-definition display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Its 16GB internal storage can go up to 2TB via a microSD card.
