Master & Dynamic’s flagship MW60 wireless over-ear headphones are now available in a few new colorways for their 2017 holiday capsule collection, including olive green, camouflage, and black on black leather.

The new styles, though, make clear reference to the brand’s home city: NYC.
A high-capacity universal battery, Mophie’s latest Powerstation comes with both a USB-C output port and an additional USB-A output port. As far as power goes, there’s enough here to charge a MacBook entirely, with some energy left over for other devices.

It’s also 25% smaller than a standard portable charger with equivalent power.

Available for pre-order now, the Check-In is expected to ship 28 November.
