In business, getting the upper hand is critical – any slight edge over competitors can help you get that sales boost you need. And gear that doesn't quite work or has too many complicated features will just slow you down.

What you need are gadgets that can give you an edge and help you stay productive at the office or on business trips. And to that end, we thought we'd look back at our most favoured gadgets of last year, which offer unique features and good craftsmanship for those who need to get real work done.

1. Plantronics BackBeat Pro

What sets these headphones for business users apart is that they last for a full 24 hours, mostly due to the sensing tech that knows when you are not wearing the device and puts it into a sleep mode. If you don't use the BackBeat Pro for an extended period, it will shut down completely.

The headphones use noise-cancelling tech to help you focus on the tasks at hand. The BackBeat Pro connects to your phone or tablet over Bluetooth, but you can also use a 3.5mm wired connector to any gadget or laptop.
