You’re guaranteed incredible memories, likely to make lifelong friends and, inevitably, go on more than your fair share of extended rides on a planes, trains, and automobiles. For all those hours spent staring out of the window, you’ll definitely want some tunes to keep you company.

But when all of your belongings are squished into a single bag, the last thing you need to deal with is the dreaded tangled-wire situation. That’s where Bose SoundSport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones come in.

Available in four colours – black, aqua, yellow and red – they connect wirelessly over Bluetooth to your music device or smartphone. They’re also sweat- and water-resistant, meaning they won’t get destroyed if you’re sweating it out on a Colombian wildlife tour or lounging at one of the best infinity pools in Greece.

If you’re travelling with a crew, or made friends along the way, you’ll want to set the scene with music while hanging out. Bose Soundlink Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speakers are perfect for an afternoon on the beaches of Sydney or for pumping the jams when facing-off over a fierce game of beer pong in your hostel. The speakers are available in white, red, black, and aqua and with eight hours of battery life, you’ll be able to keep the party going as long as you want.
