Polk Nue Era Headphones ($79.95)
Summer is my favorite season. It's a time when I can bask in the warm weather, throw backyard barbecues, and tend to my flowers. Even when I'm outdoors or on a family trip, I like to have my iDevices right there with me and am always on the lookout for products that enhance their usefulness so I can share them with iPhone Life readers. This season, I've found new products as well as some time-tested ones that will work perfectly to make your summer more efficient, relaxed, and fun. Polk's Nue Era earbuds are a great choice for reducing noise on family road trips. Not only do they tune out ambient sound, but they also limit the noise that escapes from them, making for fewer complaints coming from the backseat. The memory foam and silicone ear tips are specially shaped to enhance passive noise isolation and deliver excellent audio performance. The earbuds, which come in a tortoise or black finish, have a built-in microphone and a three-button controller for audio and phone control.
