6 Must-Have Electronics for Back-to-School

by Bill Welles

1. Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones

No matter which university you’re enrolled in, back-to-school is always a chaotic time. Between adjusting to new roommates, meeting new people, and maneuvering your way around a new campus, it can be difficult to find a quiet place to study and work on assignments without distractions. That’s where noise-canceling headphones truly excel -- at sounding off unwanted disruptions.

Bose noise-canceling headphones are engineered to clear away the outside distractions of the world, so you can focus on your music, your schoolwork, and the things that matter most to you.

2. Sonos One Speaker

The compact design of the Sonos One Speaker will fit anywhere in your dorm and can be easily moved from room to room. Place it on top of your desk, on your nightstand, or near your communal kitchen or living room so you can listen with your roommates. If you’re someone who enjoys music while they shower -- this speaker is even humidity resistant so it still plays great in the bathroom. 

Voice control built right in allows you to set alarms, check your calendar, or ask for help while you do your homework. The sound quality is crisp and vivid enough to enjoy in your dorm, yet it can be quickly stored if the RA is called for a noise complaint. 

 3. Klipsch Gaming Headset

Odds are, you might be spending more time gaming in college than you do studying. The Klipsch Wireless Gaming Headset allows you to immerse yourself in the virtual world with high-level audio technology that brings the sensation of the game to real life. It is designed for use with multiple consoles, so the game is in your favor no matter what system you have. 

Wireless freedom with stereo-quality sound grants users convenience and quality with a multi-faceted product when you need a break from the books. 

It’s always game on with Klipsch.

4. Amazon Echo 

An Amazon Echo is a valuable product for students in multiple ways. First, it acts as a personal assistant to provide the weather and what to wear before your walk to class, keeps you organized with reminders of due dates and exams, and offers writing motivation when you’re pushing the clock to get that essay done. Second, it can be used to play music and entertain guests when you invite friends to your dorm for a party. 

Whether you use it to study or use it to socialize, the Amazon Echo should help ease the transition back to school.

5. Samsung QLED TV

If college football is a big part of your back-to-school plan, then you need to invest in the right TV for game days. The Samsung QLED was made for sports with its sharp, lifelike picture quality. You can also enjoy ultra-wide angle viewing with sizes up to 82”. Vibrant colors, a consistent picture during every play, and glare-reducing technology give you home field advantage during every game. 

You can even control the game from your couch with Bixby voice assistant and manage your viewing, channels, and volume without getting up. If you’re not at the stadium, don’t just watch the game--feel the experience.

6. LG Watch W7

If you need to wake up early to make it to class on time, having a reliable, high-tech watch will always tell you exactly what time it is. An LG smartwatch offers a seamless function with elegant design. Its large screen allows for easy reading and touch-control. A single charge with Just Watch Mode can last up to 100 days, and the watch offers health coaching whether you're at the rec center or trying to decompress after midterms. 

Change the watch faces to fit your personality, mood, or current activity, and navigate phone calls when your mom calls to check in on your studies.  

With this much precision, style, and quality, it’s hard not to watch the clock.
