Mak­ing use of Ama­zon ‘Alexa’, Ul­ti­mate Ears’ new speak­ers al­low you to change tracks, ad­just the vol­ume and cue up playlists, all with the sound of your own voice. Plus, you can make calls and re­ceive text mes­sages with­out in­ter­rupt­ing your beats. With bigger bass than pre­vi­ous mod­els, these are enough to put your AI con­cerns at bay. So if the ma­chines do take over, at least they’ll sound good.
