New products (week of April 4)


Creative Aurvana In-Ear3 Plus


Two tweeters and two woofers power the new Creative Aurvana In-Ear3 Plus to deliver accurate and smooth audio performance.

It also features Creative's AuraSeal noise-isolation technology, which is said to minimise bass leakage and block out as much as 98 per cent of ambient noise.

The angled sound tube fits the ear canal snugly and naturally, while its L-shaped gold-plated headphone jack offers optimal connection.

It also has an in-line microphone and one-button remote with volume adjustment for music playback control, and for answering calls when you use the earphones with your smartphone.



From $76, available in June

Designed and manufactured by a Taiwanese company, Adam Elements, the iKlips is an iOS USB flash drive that lets users share and transfer files between an iOS device and computer (PC or Mac). It looks like a regular slim USB flash drive, but has a USB 3.0 connector at one end and a Lightning connector at the other.

It will be available in silver, gold, space grey and red. It comes in 16GB ($76), 32GB ($103), 64GB ($131) and 128GB ($227) capacities. However, you can get it for up to $9 cheaper with free international shipping when you back the iKlips' fundraising campaign on Indiegogo (


Case Scenario Marble Element 8,000mAh Power Bank


If you are going to carry a power bank to satisfy your gadget's thirst for battery juice, you might as well carry a good-looking one, like the Case Scenario Marble Element which is covered with beautiful marble-like swirls.

Its built-in 8,000mAh lithium-ion battery delivers much-needed power. When you plug it into your device, it automatically charges the device. Take it off and it automatically goes into standby after 15 seconds of inactivity.


Nikon Coolpix P900


The Nikon Coolpix P900 has to be the ultimate ultra-zoom digital compact camera with a mind- blowing 83x optical zoom lens. This gives it a focal range starting from a wide-angle 24mm to an unbelievable 2,000mm. So, you can shoot a wide- angle landscape of lofty cliffs and still capture that tiny bird perched atop a cliff.

It has a 16-megapixel image sensor and a 3-inch monitor. Dual-detect optical vibration- reduction technology helps to minimise camera shake and keep your photos sharp.


Seagate Seven


Wondering why this hard drive is called Seven? It is actually rather simple. Seven represents the 7mm thickness of this USB 3.0 portable hard drive. Seagate calls it the slimmest way to carry 500GB of data around.

Its super-thin stainless steel enclosure protects Seagate's 5mm-thin hard drive and allows it to be that slim. It weighs a mere 178g, making it perfect to carry around.


Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit

$229, available from tomorrow

Into its 11th year, the Nike Free running shoes franchise has always been about flexibility - just as its name suggests. The latest Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit continues the tradition.

Nike calls this its most natural ride, with a 4mm heel-to-toe offset (the difference between the heel and midfoot heights). Its signature hexagonal flex grooves on the outsole have been redesigned to offer a wider range of motion by adapting to varying ground conditions.

It uses Nike's Flyknit sock-like upper, which conforms to the shape of the foot but also provides support.
