Delphi SkyFi3 XM Satellite Radio
Although some might argue that satellite radio’s popularity has already peaked, this latest offering from Delphi is sure to help keep it squarely on the hot list. The most recent addition to the popular SkyFi family is the first portable satellite radio to feature a removable microSD card slot, allowing you to combine your own MP3 files with up to 10 hours of XM programming — essentially synthesizing the best features of an MP3 player with the best of satellite radio. It also boasts a 30-minute pause/replay feature and is 65 percent smaller than its predecessor, yet still features an easy-to-read 2.8-inch display. And it can be oriented horizontally or vertically, for easy use in the car or in your pocket. $199. (http://www.shopdelphi.com)
Bang & Olufsen EarSet 2
Those who are still clinging to the notion that Bluetooth headsets can’t be cool will reconsider once they check out this innovation from Denmark’s Bang & Olufsen, the unrivaled leader in cutting-edge consumer electronic products. Two omni-directional microphones filter and suppress wind noise, offering optimal voice transmission while excluding environmental sound. Just fold out the short microphone arm to switch onthe EarSet 2, and fold it in again to turn it off — the ingeniously simple design makes it difficult to drain the battery by accident. A three-way adjustable earpiece keeps it firmly and comfortably in place. Made of aluminum and soft-touch plastic, it’s a little work of art in the palm of your hand — and on your ear. $350.

Get ready to jam — or just tune out. $99.95. (http://www.bose.com)
