This 2016 Christmas, consider getting this cool tech gadget.

SENSO ActivBuds Bluetooth headphones are not only wireless, but they are also noise cancelling, waterproof, and ALSO last for 8 hours. We searched high and low for good quality headphones that are also wireless and we found out that SENSO equips this model with a TRUE HD HIGH FIDELITY SOUND, which features the latest Bluetooth 4.1 CSR technology and start of the art acoustic components that produce incredible sound quality with deep bass sounds and crystal clear treble, giving you that amazing balance of sound.

It is absolutely worth EVERY penny for this item.

The company also worked hard for a comfortable and secure fit with IPX-7 and waterproof technology that is designed to give you flexibility with ear hooks (that are extremely comfortable with gel flex silicone earbuds to ensure your headphones stay comfortably firm in place) Big or small ears, this fits all.

We also found these headphones had one of the longest battery life spans, that played music for us up to 9-10 hours, and 240 hours of stand by that you can quickly charge for 1.5 hours to 100% power. That means you can charge it during your sleep, naps, break time, lunch times, and easily never run out of power. (Even charge it in your car, why not?)
