But let's start with the positives. The Headphone works -- and by that I mean the two earbuds maintain a steady connection and they also paired and re-paired with my phones without a problem. (I use an iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in my tests.) They're lightweight and fit in my ears well and stayed there.

Operating on the theory that humans typically have only two to three hours of high productivity a day, Alcaide says Enten can suggest breaks, block notifications and increase noise canceling to maximize your focus across the entire day.

To date Neuralink has only been tested on animals: Earlier this month, a monkey with the implant was able to play the video game Pong without a joystick, using only the electrical signal from its brain. 

Bragi was arguably the nascent category's first flagbearer. The German startup had a highly successful Kickstarter for its first totally wireless "smart" earphone called The Dash that shipped in early 2016. The $300 Dash (roughly £225 or AU$395) was also laden with sensors, so it could double as a fitness wearable. It got off to a rocky start, garnering some critical reviews, but has improved with subsequent software upgrades.

One smart choice the designers made was to keep the Heyday brand label small. You barely notice that it's stamped on a tiny plate at the base of the headband on either side. The headphones come in three color options: My sample was the tan and gold version, but it also comes in gray and gold or black print and article -, gold.

The company said the Series C funding round was led by investment firm Tiger Global with new investment from Dragoneer, while existing investors including Susquehanna Growth Equity and Silversmith Capital Partners also participated.

With the step-up Dash, which has upgradeable firmware and touch controls, there's an app to control a set of advanced features, but these wireless earphones have no app and their firmware isn't upgradeable.

ActiveCampaign had only 15 people in 2016, said Jason VandeBoom, the company's founder and chief executive officer, but now the startup employs more than 850 people and caters to at least 145,000 customers.

The Headphone is essentially a stripped down version of the $300 Dash -- both in terms of features and materials. Gone are the Dash's fitness tracking functions, on-board MP3 player and waterproofing. The Headphone is all plastic, and its included charging case is made of plastic instead of metal. It also doesn't have a built-in battery for recharging the earphones, which is a bit of a problem.

One of the more intriguing products is a set of modestly priced (Heyday On-Ear Wireless Headphones on . They aren't on-ear headphones, which is a good thing -- I prefer over-ear -- but I'm going to continue calling them by their given name until Target changes it (after reading this write-up, one hopes).

It sometimes feels as if the tech world is obsessed with the AirPods (headphones to be released under the Apple brand. But the iPhone maker was not the first company to release a so-called "truly wireless" headphone -- models that feature standalone left and right earpieces, unencumbered by a connecting wire, and charge up in an included battery case. Such pioneers in the category as and Bragi were showing off models as early as January 2016, eight months before the AirPods were unveiled alongside the iPhone 7 (Tim Cook.

The company is back with a second headphone that it simply calls "The Headphone." (OK, then.) It, too, is completely wireless and consists of two wireless earbuds and a charging case. It's much more affordable than The Dash, carrying a list price of $149 (roughly £110 or AU$195).

April 21 (Reuters) - ActiveCampaign, a cloud software platform that provides automation tools, said on Wednesday it had raised $240 million in fresh funding, valuing the company at more than $3 billion.

As far as the design goes, they seem sturdy but are pretty lightweight at 8.3 ounces (236 grams) and feature nicely padded earcups. They're comfortable to wear, have a clean, stylish look and fold flat, but they don't come with any sort of carrying case. The only complaint I've heard is that the headband (at its crest) puts pressure on the top of some people's heads and creates discomfort. You can alleviate that by opening up the headphones a bit, but then they won't fit your head as snugly.
