urbanears active
The 2016 Rio Olympics opened yesterday to much fanfare, with fireworks, samba dancers and athletes from all over the world marching around the city’s Maracana Stadium. To celebrate the Olympic spirit, Swedish headphone brand Urbanears released Urbanears Active, a line of headphones made specifically with athleticism in mind. Urbanears took the DNA of their Scandinavian-designed headphones and added details to make them more durable in order to withstand the wear and tear put on electronics by using the headphones under extreme physical activity. The Urbanears Active line features two headphones: the wireless Hellas and the Reimers earbuds.

The Hella is equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 connection, which means that you can move freely about without getting entangled in the cord. There’s also a built-in mic, so you can talk on the phone, and a touch interface on the ear cup, so you can answer your phone and change songs freely, and adjust volume without reaching down to get your phone to change all that. There are mesh and reflective detailing so that you’ll be spotted from afar, and they last 14 hours from charge to charge, so you can go a full day without needing to charge the headphones. Plus the ear cushions and headband are washable, so you can just throw them in the washer after a long day of working out.

The Reimers earbuds comes with an EarClick solution that promises listening that’s uninterrupted by sweat. You earbuds will stay in place no matter how much you move. There’s also a built-in mic, so you can talk on the phone, as well as a reflective cable that allows you to be seen after dark.

So pick up a pair of Urbanears Active headphones – they’re the most stylish headphones that can withstand your workout.

Dustin Hoffman

If you are a movie buff, or you had a family member who grew up in the 1970s, it's surely impossible for you to not have heard of the legendary Dustin Hoffman. Ranking right up alongside the iconic Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman's style was much more everyman and antihero than these other big names. Hoffman was able to provide a strange sense of comfort when he starred in a film, even if his characters made questionable choices along the way. Even though he's not as active in his 80s, Hoffman is still acting and will appear in the fourth Kung Fu Panda movie alongside Jack Black. We're here to rank the best Dustin Hoffman movies so you can catch up on all of his greatest hits!

5 types of cigars you need to know about

If you've never really enjoyed a cigar, maybe it's not you; it's the smokes themselves -- perhaps you just haven't found the right cigar for your pleasure. It's a given that the aroma and flavor of a cigar are primarily derived from the tobacco used to make it, both the filling and the wrapper. But cigar type, meaning shape and size, also significantly impacts how a stogie tastes and smells, not to mention how its profile changes during the smoking process.

Those huge cigars passed out at bachelor parties may start smooth but can end up heavy and harsh as they burn down. Likewise, a slender cigarillo may burn hot and intense from the start: Size and shape don't play a direct role in how the cigar will taste or how mellow or potent it will be, but they do dictate the smoke time and, depending on the tobacco used, how the cigar will change while burning down.
