No headphone jack? No problem. The new Libratone Q Adapt In-Ear earbuds plug into the Lightning port on Apple iPads and iPhones--including the headphone-jack-free iPhone 7 and 7S. This method provides power for its true active noise-cancellation circuitry, which adjusts to five different levels depending on how much ambient noise users want to hear. The $179 @libratone Q Adapt earbuds have fabric-covered cords and come in white, black, pink and *ahem* “nude.” #iPhone7

The HP DeskJet 3755 wireless inkjet printer, billed as the world’s smallest all-in-one, measures just 16.7 by 7 by 5.4 inches (WDH).

The $70 unit can be managed with free apps and the optional @hewlettpackard Instant Ink program ($2.99 to $9.99/mo. based on pages) guarantees that users won’t run out of ink: The unit alerts HP as the ink supply runs low…

The @microsoft Surface Studio desktop PC has an impressive 28-inch, 4,500-by-3,000-pixel touch display, but at $2,999 to $4,199, it doesn’t come cheap. It folds almost flat but smoothly glides upright. It comes with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, an @nvidia GeForce GPU with up to 4GB of memory, up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB or 2TB of storage. It comes with a Surface Pen stylus and works with the new Surface Dial, which can be placed directly on the screen to add new app-control features.

The Star Wars Bluetooth Levitating Death Star Speaker from Australia-based Plox spins and floats freely above its magnetic base—but doesn’t have to if there’s no one around to impress. The 3.75-inch globe speaker offers up to five hours of five-watt audio per two-hour charge and can be used as a down-to-earth Bluetooth 4.1 portable speaker. The $200 unit, spotted at the Pepcom Holiday Spectacular press-only product showcase in NYC, will be available Oct. 1. CLICK THE PIC. #StarWars

The $300 Project Nursery High Definition Baby Monitor lets you channel your inner Dick Tracy as you keep an eye on your child. The @projectnursery system comes with a Parent Audio Video Monitor (4.3-inch display) and a Mini Monitor (1.5-inch screen) you can wear on your wrist. It uses encrypted 2.4 GHz wireless technology instead of less-secure Wi-Fi and has a range of up to 800 feet. The camera detects motion, supports night vision and can be remotely panned, tilted and zoomed. #FathersDay

The new Bose QuietComfort 35 noise-cancelling on-ear headset has a key feature its predecessors didn’t: a Bluetooth wireless adapter. The $350 unit detects noise via mics inside and outside the earcups, offers voice prompts and supports NFC (near-field communication), which means users can link it with a smartphone with a tap.

The new Libratone ONE Click Bluetooth wireless speaker is soft to the touch, but the solid unit has enough power to fill a room with music. The water-resistant $199 unit offers 360-degree audio, a 12-hour battery and can be used as a speakerphone. The exterior is almost button free—only a power button and backlit touch control interrupt the symmetry. The bumper can be removed so a strap or padlock-style hook can be attached and two speakers can be linked with a free @libratone app. CLICK THE…
