We like Swedish company Nocs’s new NS2 Air Monitors not only for their ability to sync with any iOS device via Apple’s AirPlay wireless streaming but also for their durability—a must with any portable electronics. The two-way speakers have three-inch woofer cones made of Kevlar, silk dome tweeters and, most important, handcrafted rubberized exteriors, which come in six colors. Which means, in non-tech speak, that these speakers are both powerful and durable. $450 for a set of two; nocs.se.
