Update (11/3 2:00pm): Congratulations to Greg M (@th3taman) for winning the Jaybird X3 giveaway. Thanks to everyone who entered! This giveaway has now ended.

Jaybird audio products have quickly risen to the top of the mainstream market as we dash further and further into an all wireless world. And with the release of Jaybird’s X3 Wireless Sport Headphones today, the company has made an even greater statement as to why its products are a great complement to your iPhone, Apple Watch, Google Pixel and every other Bluetooth capable device. The X3 headphones build off all of the best features of their predecessor, including a sweat-proof design and 8-hour battery life. In addition, the latest earbuds are slightly smaller to fit under a ski or bike helmet, feature Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and an enhanced 6mm driver for “larger sound.” The companion MySound App allows you to create a custom sound profile and save it directly to your X3 headphones so it’s always with you, no matter which device you’re paired with.

Jaybird’s X3 headphones are available for pre-order now and are priced at $129.99. The previous generation X2 headphones sold for $150, but are now being liquidated at many retailers for just $79.99.

How would you like to win a pair of Jaybird’s all-new X3 Bluetooth headphones? Well, we’ve partnered with Jaybird to hook one of our readers up, so here’s your chance! Head below for more information on how you can enter our Jaybird X3 giveaway:

Since the Apple Watch was first released last Spring, we’ve seen a plethora of alternative bands for this timepiece. Apple has a handful of official options. You can also find cost-effective alternatives on Amazon. As the accessory market has grown, one of our favorite trends has been established watchmakers that have developed their own line of third-party bands.

Throne Watches out of Brooklyn, NY has leaned on its expertise to craft a couple of different options designed specifically for Apple’s device. Today, we’re launching a giveaway that will deliver a new handcrafted watch band to three lucky 9to5Toys readers.

Increasing app and photo file sizes have made managing mobile device storage tougher than ever. At one time or another, we’ve all run out of space on our iPhones and as a result were unable to snap a memorable picture or download an important document. An easy way to overcome this issue (outside of buying a new device) is to backup data more frequently and offload large media files with a USB flash drive.

We’ve teamed up with SanDisk to give away three of its best-selling mobile device storage solutions: 32GB iXpand Lightning Flash Drive ($80 value), 128GB Connect Wireless Stick ($100 value), and 32GB Dual USB Drive Type-C ($50 value).

There are thousands of headphone options on the market today. Most consumers (and our readers) are pretty picky about the style and connectivity used to enjoy their music. Some are fans of over-ear designs while others prefer earbuds.

No matter your preference, build quality is likely at the top of your list if you’re looking for a serious pair of headphones. We recently reviewed the Trinity Delta earbuds, which are one of the more unique pairs of earbuds that we’ve seen. Primarily because each set is individually carved out of a solid block of aluminum. It’s quite impressive.

Sony has announced that it will be releasing a new Limited Edition Gold PlayStation 4 console and there will be only 6,000 available to the public. This is just half the inventory of the rare 20th Anniversary console that Sony released last year. So you know it will be tough to come by.

The revamped console is stunning, and frankly we want one really bad. Sony has applied a nice finish on top with the traditional black coating on the bottom. The matching DualShock controller fits in perfectly. There is no denying that this will one of the most sought after PlayStation bundles to hit the market. We can already imagine the aftermarket prices skyrocketing.

Don’t expect to see this console hitting online retailers anytime soon, you’ll have to head down to Taco Bell to win one of these…

Update (8/15 10:10am): @Pixelbud is our winner – thank you to everyone for entering our contest! Back in March we were introduced to Olio’s Connected Timepiece, the brain child of former Beats by Dre and Google product designer Steve Jacobs. Since then, this Apple Watch competitor has enjoyed monstrous success as it sold out of its entire first run of watches.

These high-end devices were thoughtfully crafted to curate the myriad of notifications that come from iPhone and Androids so users aren’t bombarded with a constant stream of distractions. This unique design delivers an individualized “personal assistant” experience.

Today, 9to5Toys is happy to announce that we’ve partnered with Olio to giveaway one of its gorgeous Black Collection timepieces, valued at $795. Head below to find out how you can enter to win it.

Olio announces new Gold and Rose Gold options for its luxury smartwatch

Olio first announced its new luxury timepieces for iOS and Android back in March, today they’ve returned with new models made from custom materials. Its latest watches are available in 24 karat gold or 18 karat rose gold. The company has paid extra attention to the details this time around, creating custom batches of the material for these limited edition devices.

The rose gold is particularly notable, when I spoke with founder Steve Jacobs last week it was easy to see the passion behind this medium:

“It’s not just a new color, we’ve developed a new alloy that was custom designed for us”, he said. “The rose gold is a little bit darker, more of a chocolate hue that really looks nice. We’re like a craft brewery or artisanal coffee shop in that we make small batches of high quality products.”

Olio quickly sold out of the first batch of its watches and is now ready to release a second run. This round will include 500 steel and black options, as well as 100 of each of the gold models. The new rose and yellow gold watches will retail for $1,195 with a leather band or $1,395 with a solid gold wrist-strap. These prices are a fraction of the cost that Apple charges for the Apple Watch Edition, with similar band options.

9to5Toys will be giving away a Olio Black Watch, valued at $745 in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for additional details on how you could win one for yourself.
