You’ll never need to carry these new wireless headphones – at least not with cables

Swedish audio maker Urbanista has lifted the lid on a new pair of true wireless headphones with a charging case that can only run on solar power.

Following the launch of Urbanista Los Angeles in-ear headphones last year, the brand has applied a similar design philosophy to its new wireless Phoenix headphones, which promise to do away with the need for restrictive cords and charging cables thanks to a case that continuously recharges when exposed to all forms of external or internal light.

AMD’s fastest Ryzen 7000 CPUs may have a fancy box, but they can get more expensive

AMD’s packaging for its faster Ryzen 7000 processors has reportedly leaked and it looks pretty smart – plus there’s some pricing news, though that does suggest that these high-end models might be pricier than the existing Ryzen 5000 heavyweights.

The box image for the next-gen Ryzen 9 processors was shown by VideoCardz (opens in new tab), with the tech site noting that it is allegedly taken from an internal presentation held by AMD. Add your own skepticism at this point, and indeed VideoCardz notes that it hasn’t been able to confirm with other sources that the photo is genuine, so keep that in mind – although the image is a good fake if it’s not real.

Also keep in mind that this is for the Ryzen 9 models, the more premium chips for the Ryzen 7000 (Zen 4), and the cases for lower spec CPUs will likely look different (usually some considerable effort goes into the packaging for silicon expensive, to make buyers feel like they’re getting something special – just look at Intel’s simulated gold wafer for the Alder Lake flagship).

More interesting here is that the leaked image source provides gossip about the potential price of Zen 4 processors, although this should be handled with extra care. The theory is that the Ryzen 7 7700X will launch at the same recommended price as the Ryzen 7 5700X and that, overall, AMD will look to keep prices at the same level as the Ryzen 5000, with a few exceptions.
