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.

The 10 best medium cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Man smoking cigar casually outside his home, best medium bodied cigars.

Cigars come in a range of strengths, from mellow and mild to full-bodied. The middle road, as you might expect, is a solid medium. One misconception I commonly see about cigar strength is that it directly correlates with flavor. While full-bodied cigars do offer robust and unique flavor profiles, it's not always true that they are the most flavorful. If you know where to look, you can find many mellow to medium smokes that are still flavor bombs. A perfect example of this is the . Yes, it's a mild to medium blend, but the flavors are incredible, with a creamy buttery finish. Medium smokes are also what I would recommend to friends, family, and acquaintances who don't like the toasty and smoky flavors of a stronger cigar like a Maduro. Without further ado, here are the best medium cigars I've tried and tested in 2024 and would recommend to everyone else.

Man choosing clothes at his walk-in closet

Like personal finance or basic kitchen skills, organizing your closet isn’t something that gets taught anymore. Now is the perfect time to refresh your drawers and cabinets for a fresh new season. If you’re like most guys, your parents (i.e., your mom) did this for you while you were growing up, sneaking into your bedroom while you were out to collect your sh** from off the floor and put it back into your closet and drawers where it belonged.

Focusing on something you can control — the clutter in your closet — is a rare treat. Organizing your closet is an undeniably good use of free time, and it will make it easier to find items you're looking for.
