But in the year since I sent my old iPad mini 2 to the big closet in the sky, Apple’s 9.7-inch tablet has easily become the piece of tech I use most often.
Instead of sitting in front of a laptop all day, I split my duties between a Mac mini in my home office and the iPad everywhere else.
When I get inevitably tired of being chained to a desk, though, the iPad takes over for light writing, note taking, and Web browsing.
If anything, I find the experience of writing on the iPad to be less distracting than on the desktop.
Since the iPad can only display one or two apps at a time, it forces me to focus on what’s on the screen at any given moment.
Type my last name and “Koss” into any search engine, and you’ll likely find me gushing about the company’s headphone line.
Koss’ comfortable FitClips series—which rest around your ear with a rubber, sweat-friendly grip—now includes a Bluetooth model.
If that amount of rubber isn’t your cup of portable tea, the BT190 line wedges inside the ear with a grip unlike anything else on the market.
Should portable wear-and-tear lead to an ear going silent or other issues, simply ship the broken pair and a check for roughly $7 to Koss HQ to get a replacement.
I’ve spent maybe $120 on Koss products over the past decade, and I plan to continue for another 10 years.
