Ultimate setup: HTC One (M8)

Beyerdynamic XP2

You feel like getting a decent pair of in-ears that won't break the bank? Try Beyerdynamic's XP2 which offers a balanced sound without costing over much. With passive sound isolation, a tangle-free cable and double-shelled body, these are pretty good bang for the buck.

Griffin Woodtones

If in–ears aren’t your thing, then Griffin’s sharp Woodtones cans will be the perfect complement to the sleek design of your new phone. That wood finish will make you feel like your old man kicking back and listening to his Bowie LPs in the '70s. Plus the warm, laid-back sound won’t overwhelm when you crank up the volume.

HTC Fetch

There's nothing worse than losing your keys. Well actually, there is - losing your phone. Ensure you don't lose either with HTC Fetch. This handy fob attaches to your keys (or anything else you choose) and will warn you if you stray too far from your phone. It can also be used to make your phone ring, within 15 metres, if you can't locate it - and if you misplace your keys, you can use the phone to make your Fetch buzz instead. A map function even lets you see when the two were last together, and it'll work as a shutter button for the M8's camera too.

Bose Soundlink Mini

Streaming speakers are a great addition for any smartphone. But how about one that also doubles as a lightbulb? Well AwoX’s Striimlight does just that. It makes our list because as well as Bluetooth smarts it is also HTC Connect certified, meaning it will work seamlessly with your M8. Shove it into any lampshade, hook it up to your phone and it’ll play tunes while lighting up your lounge. Crazy, but it might just work.
