The Hotpoint TS 5760F NE Flexi Zone is an electric induction hob that’s easy to use and boasts a great range of features. It has four burners, although the two on the left can be combined into one zone to heat up large pans.
We awarded the Audeze Euclid headphones with a perfect 5-star rating after being impressed by the balanced and natural audio quality on offer. These headphones are a superb option for those who pride audio realism over bombast, while also proving to be very versatile with both wired and wireless modes.
The Shokz OpenSwim headphones, as the name suggests, are designed specifically for use while swimming. They flaunt an IP68 water resistance rating and have 4GB of onboard storage so you don’t need to bring your smartphone to the pool.

Adidas RPT-02 SOL
The Adidas RPT-02 SOL headphones feature an integrated solar panel, allowing you charge up the device while parading around in the sunlight. We also found them to offer rich, energetic audio, although the high price may be a sticking point if you’re not fussed about the eco-friendly design.
The Philips 65PUS8807 is a 65-inch 4K TV with wide HDR support. It also supports frame rates up to 120Hz, making it an ideal option for gamers with a PS5 or Xbox Series X, and since this is a Philips TV, you also get vibrant Ambilight lighting on the rear which looks fantastic.

It flaunts excellent cleaning power, and offers oodles of features via the SmartThings app. With all things considered, this is one of the best robot vacuum cleaners that we’ve tested yet.
