My phone is probably dead at least 50% of the time. It's literally dead right now, as I write this. Sometimes it's liberating, and sometimes it's torture, mainly if I was in the middle of listening to music. It's a problem we've all had, and Aivvy is aiming to fix it with the Q, an all-in-one streaming device built into a pair of headphones. Users can stream music directly through the headphones from the cloud, or download music onto the headphones' storage device to play in "offline" mode, similar to Spotify. "The system works by syncing to the Aivvy cloud over wi-fi when charging, updating its internal storage with Aivvy's catalogue of music," Shortlist reports. You can swipe the side-panels to skip through songs and adjust volume, and they actively cancel noise, so there's pretty much no excuse for the music geek in your life to not have a pair. UK customers can pre-order a pair on Kickstarter now.
