There’s a new brand that just entered the Philippine market and it’s Rock Space. You might have seen Rock Space as a freebie for OPPO phones, but the company has already expanded to be a full-fledged digital life brand that’ll cater to the ever-growing fast-paced lifestyle of modern and trendy Filipinos.

Rock Space has been around since 2009, so they’re not a new entry to the competitive accessories market. With a decade of presence in the market, the company already has a number of accessories that’ll suit almost anyone. Not only that, but Rock Space is also backed up by recognition from international product design awards.


One of the main products Rock Space is offering in the Philippines is the new EB 70 True Wireless Stereo Earphones. It’s a pair of Bluetooth 5.0-equipped wireless earphones with Hi-Fi speakers and a Digital Signal Processor for clearer sound transmission.

It has a promised continuous battery life of 4 hours, and up to 17 hours using the carrying case that also doubles as a battery pack and a charger. It has a retail price of PhP 3,999.

Rock Space also has power banks in different sizes and capacities. Take the Rock Space P66 for example. It’s a compact 10000mAh power bank with an LED display. It’s priced at PhP 1,299.

Additionally, Rock Space sells phone cables for both iPhone and Android devices, wireless chargers, fast-charging bricks, earphones, and even accessories for your car that can wirelessly charge your phone while you drive.

Also, they cut and apply their own screen protectors for various phone models. They use a special cutting machine that accurately cut the screen protector and they’ll install it for you.

Rock Space is now available in kiosks and partner stores nationwide. Those who prefer to shop online, they are also selling on Lazada and Shopee. Moreover, you can check out Rock Space products at OPPO concept stores.

Published

Xiaomi is known for its feature-packed smartphones, but the brand has a massive presence in the lifestyle segment. For now, a lot of these products are limited to Mainland China, but the brand is slowly releasing them in its core markets like India.

Today, the Chinese company launched the Mi Super Bass Wireless headphones in India and they’re priced quite aggressively. This week is going to be even more exciting because the Redmi K20 Pro is scheduled to launch on July 17.


The headphones come with a 400mAh battery that Xiaomi claims can last up to 20 hours on a single charge. In simpler words, it is sufficient to listen to 300 songs in one go. Equipped with 40mm drivers, they are tuned to deliver high bass and pressure-less earmuffs provide a comfortable listening experience over extended periods. The head beam is adjustable and has elastic shafts to rotate the ear muffs.

Lastly, they connect to any smartphone via Bluetooth 5.0, offering wider range and capability to connect two headphones simultaneously to one phone. They can also be used along with a wire if you want truly acoustic output. Operations can be handled via voice commands thanks to an in-built mic and support for virtual assistants.

They’re priced at INR 2,199 (US$ 32) and can be purchased via Amazon.in. Prime Day sale is going on and they can be grabbed for just INR 1,799 (US$26). Color options include Black and Red, as well as Black and Gold.

Previously, Xiaomi has launched its range of smart TVs, air purifiers, and light bulb in India. A couple of weeks back, they also unveiled a trimmer. We expect the brand to launch more of these in the coming future as it slowly scales up operations.

5 accessories to protect yourself and your gadgets from the elements

Don’t just get an umbrella, duh!

Published

on

I hate changes in weather. One minute it’s hot and sunny like a perfect summer day, next minute, it’s raining as if Zeus and Poseidon are having the war of their lives. Monsoons got worse thanks to climate change, especially in tropical countries. It’s now even more impossible to predict the weather so you need to stay ready for all kinds of elements.

So we scoured the internet to help you prepare. Here are the accessories you need to protect you and your gadgets, of course, without getting out of style.


Dress your phone with a pouch and a case

Ready to brave the storm? Make sure you put your phone on a waterproof pouch. I know, I know. The thought of using a waterproof pouch sounds cringey. But of course, you don’t have to sacrifice style with this one. Most waterproof pouches let you change their straps to something fancier.

In particular, Travelon’s Clear View Waterproof Pouch comes in five colors and you can still tailor the strap to your preference. For something clearer and more transparent, Anker has a pouch but it looks a little bit tacky.

For those who’d want a case instead, LifeProof offers one of the best waterproof cases in the market. Most cases look bulky and sturdy, but LifeProof made it more fashionable with its bright and popping colors.

Stay fashionable while you protect yourself from the elements

Of course, nothing beats a good old umbrella when it comes to protection against the rain but you can up your style by picking one that’s clear and transparent. Even better if it’s a bubble or a dome-shaped one.

Additionally, you can keep your gadgets and makeup safe with a waterproof bag. Fjällräven has an array of water-resistant and waterproof backpacks that don’t compromise style. Brands like Doughnut and Pacsafe have a set of stylish yet functional waterproof bags, too.

Lastly, cap off your style with a water-repellent raincoat or parka. This particular blush pink raincoat by Cole Haan should be a part of your ensemble, especially when it’s raining. Avoid using black, neutral, and earthy-tone since most people would prefer using a darker hue when it’s raining, and you won’t stand out if you wear the same colors.

For those who don’t feel like wearing a raincoat, Uniqlo has a Blocktech line of water-repellent parkas that you can use casually or for your outdoor needs. NikeLabs has a longer parka as well if you prefer using one!

If you want the world to see your OOTD, you can opt for a transparent raincoat so people can see what’s underneath.

Bonus: Get a water-resistant watch!

If it’s raining while on your way to an important meeting, chances are you’ll be keeping your gadgets inside your bag to prevent it from getting wet. This might keep you from tracking time. Thus, you need a watch that can handle these kinds of elements. Apple and Samsung both have smartwatches that are water-resistant yet stylish at the same time.

Now, who told you rain can’t be fun?
