Skullcandy and legendary snowboard brand Burton launch new collaboration

If you were around at the dawn of the snowboarding age, the Burton brand probably holds a special place in your heart. Founded in 1977 in the U.S., it was one of the sport’s very first manufacturers and remains one of the largest snowboard companies on the planet. Today, Burton is lending its distinctive mountain logo and flashy graphics to a new collaboration with Skullcandy for a limited release of three of the latter’s wireless headphone and earbud models.

The Crusher Evo, Push Active, and Mod are now available with graphics torn from Burton’s Rewind and Name Dropper board designs, which feature asymmetrical patterns of peach, pink, and purple cheetah print on one side and olive green on the other. Only 4,000 of each model will be made.

Though identical in function to the normal versions of these products, the limited editions carry a $10 price premium.

A man with a cochlear hearing implant listens to TV audio.

A select number of Amazon Fire TV devices now support audio streaming to hearing implants, thanks to a partnership between Amazon and Cochlear, the world's largest provider of hearing implants. It lets hearing implant users hear a variety of audio content. Depending on the Fire TV device, that includes streaming movies and shows from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, podcasts, audiobooks, Alexa voice feedback, system sounds, and audio from local TV networks.

The new feature uses a Bluetooth protocol known as Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA), along with special modifications for the specific needs of those who use implants. At the moment, hearing implant streaming is available on Fire TV Omni QLED Series, Fire TV Omni Series, Fire TV 4-Series, Fire TV Cube (3rd Gen), and Fire TV Cube (2nd Gen) devices. It will work with Cochlear Nucleus 8, Nucleus 7, Nucleus Kanso 2, and Baha 6 Max sound processors.
