Even with so many things on display at CES 2016, there were a few of them that grabbed our attention. One advantage to the ever changing face of technology, on the other hand, is that the older versions of certain gadgets and electronics become more affordable and accessible as newer versions are created. In the midst of the packed crowds and big-name press conferences, companies from across the world showed off some of the coolest technology that is about to be released. It comes in a wide array of colors making it not only a great hearing aid device but also a cool one.
