I think it’s that memory that makes me love this modern-day version so much. These high-quality headphones not only sound and look great, but the company who makes them, LSTN, restores hearing to a person in need through the Starkey Hearing Foundation with every set sold. In less than two years, over 20,000 have been given the gift of sound and music. www.lstnheadphones.com BY CARLA VALENCIA DE MARTINEZ 62 L O C A L | may 15 I didn’t realize how badly I needed to have one of these until recently. Probably the only reason I keep my phone charged is to communicate with my husband and the people who help me with my kids! When it gets under 20%, I start to get anxiety. Apelpi’s Stem Gold is tiny, light and, hello, it’s gold. With a 2200 mAh portable external battery charger that adds 6 hours of talk time – which hopefully takes me into to naptime so I don’t have to worry. www.apelpi.com
