NOMAD launches synthetic and leather cases for iPhone 13 series

The ultimate protection



The iPhone 13 is finally here. Of course, what would a new iPhone launch be without a complementary set of accessories to go with it? Case and accessory maker NOMAD is launching its lineup of cases to go with the iPhone 13 series. And this time, it’s going bigger.


Introducing synthetic

For the first time, NOMAD is entering the world of synthetic cases. The new Sport Case for iPhone brings a light and durable solution for people with active lifestyles or those who don’t prefer leather. The case uses a scratch-resistant PET-coated polycarbonate frame to provide durability. It also has high grip TPE bumpers, a microfiber interior, and tactile metal buttons. Besides scratch resistance, the case can also protect against drops from 6 feet.

To complement the iPhone’s functionalities, the case will have built-in MagSafe magnets and an NFC business card feature.

The Sport Case for iPhone will come in Black, Dune, Space Grey, Marine Blue, and Ash Green. It will ship starting October 18 and will retail for US$ 39.95.

Going leather

As always, NOMAD is also launching a lineup made with Horween Leather. Though made with leather, the Modern Leather Case has a microfiber liner which features cloud-like shock absorption. It protects the iPhone from falls of up to 10 feet. It works with MagSafe and will have an integrated NFC digital business card.

For those who need more out of their case, the Modern Leather Folio adds in three card slots and one cash slot. It also comes with a screen protector to cushion against potential scratches from credit cards. Much like the Sport Case, the leather case will have a polycarbonate frame, high grip TPE bumpers, a microfiber interior, and tactile metal buttons.

Both cases will come in Brown or Black Horween leather. Meanwhile, the Modern Leather Case will come in an additional Natural Horween leather color. The Modern Leather Case (shipping from September 23 to 29) will retail for US$ 59.95, and the Modern Leather Folio (shipping between now and September 29) will retail for US$ 79.95.

Skins and screens

For those who prefer a more minimal form of protection, NOMAD is bringing its leather skins and screen protectors to the iPhone 13 series. The skins will be made from Horween leather and sticks with 3M adhesive.

Razer now has its own gaming finger sleeves

Keeping your thumbs dry



Razer has somehow transformed into the ruler of gaming lifestyle accessories. After releasing treasure troves of peripherals and devices, the company has slowly branched off into stranger and stranger niches including toasters and SUVs. Razer is now blending peripheral with accessory in its latest product: Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves.

If you haven’t heard of finger sleeves before, think gloves but only for your fingers — or, in this case, finger. The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are meant to be worn on your thumbs. It’s specifically made for mobile gamers.

Made with a mixture of sliver fiber fabric, nylon, and spandex, the sleeves can keep your thumbs dry for serious gaming on your phone. Despite wrapping your thumbs, Razer says that the fabric is still breathable at 0.8 millimeters. They’re also a universal fit for any type of thumb.

Mobile gaming is one of the most popular forms of entertainment especially in Asian countries like the Philippines. Playing on your phone can easily whittle away the time spent in traffic or outdoors. However, since some countries are too warm and humid, sweat can just as easily accumulate and create an unsightly portrait on our otherwise pristine phone screens.

The Razer Gaming Finger Sleeves are out now and retails for US$ 9.99.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset now sports Midnight Black

Nicely paired with the DualSense controller and your “Midnight Black” PS5



Pulse 3D Wireless

Back in June, Sony announced two additional colorways for its next-generation DualSense controller. Apart from the classic white, the PlayStation 5’s newest controller also received a Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. This time around, they’ve extended the invitation to another PS5 peripheral, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Much like the DualSense controller, the headset will also come in Midnight Black. Other than this, everything else is pretty much the same for the Pulse 3D Headset. In essence, it still gives you deeper, more immersive 3D sounds to games that fully take advantage of this. It’s just that now, you have other color options to choose from. Whether or not this also comes in Cosmic Red, Sony has yet to announce that.

It’s worth noting that included in the PS5’s second major update is an equalizer for the 3D Pulse. It adds another layer of control for players. This lets them enjoy the game precisely the way they want to. But if tweaking isn’t your thing, there are also three presets: Standard, Bass Boost, or Shooter.

The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset in Midnight Black will be available on October 29 for PhP 5,590/ SG$ 149 / MYR 469/ DR1,699,000 / THB3,490 / VND2,699,000.
