SPIN ZONE Handy and fun! That's the Cableyoyo Pop, a stick-on spool that you can attach to most MP3 players. If you can bear making your iPod a bit thicker, the Pop adheres to its backside and serves as a place to roll up your headphones, which stay in place thanks to a tiny clip.

STEALTH SUB It's not enough for a subwoofer to boom you anymore - today's bass boxes gotta blend in, too.

ALL IN ONE Of course it has seven amplifier channels at 85 watts for each speaker - that's a given. The reason you get a flagship receiver like the Harman Kardon AVR 745 is the bells and whistles: automatic speaker setup, outputs for two subwoofers, and a USB port for digital music streamed from your PC.

SING IN YOUR STEP You'll never forget to bring your MP3 player to the gym when you have a pair of Dada Code M sneakers. This flash-based footwear has enough memory for about 100 songs and transmits the music to the included wireless headphones.

Samsung's HL-S5679W HDTV ($4,199), coming in August, is the first rear-projection set to use LED (light-emitting diode) light sources instead of a conventional lamp.
