Planning for the unexpected is critical, especially since we live in these hyper-connected, technology focused times.

Logitech_UE_Mobile_BoomBox_Bluetooth_Speaker_Black_&_Red__33464_zoom.jpgLogitech is a company with a fairly wide range of products, but much of what they’re known for is sound.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to talk to 50 Cent himself about the latest SMS Audio headphones bearing his name and likeness, but then again, there wasn’t a whole lot of news to report, either.

There are no technical differences between these and the original models, so this is purely a cosmetic change. The new colours are navy blue, monster green, metallic orange, metallic pink, metallic red, metallic teal.

On the outside looking in at this madness is SOL Republic, a new company that’s barely a year old, but a potential rising star in a confusing category. Having met with one of the company’s chief executives and trying out a couple of their headphones, I came away surprised at what I experienced.
