September is a busy month. You've got looming financial decisions, hours upon hours of research and planning ahead, and tough decisions to make. And that's just for your fantasy football leagues. That doesn't leave a lot of time for researching promotional products, but don't worry—we've gathered four of the best ones for you here.
The Soundwave Earbuds from Crown Products have a leather-like case with an inside storage pocket. And while they may not change into a sweet robot form like Soundwave, the Transformers character, that's probably for the best. That guy was pretty mean. For more information, visit www.crownprod.com.
Evans Manufacturing's Quart Size Travel Carrier comes in six colors and is made from clear PVC, making it less of a hassle to get through airport security. Also, a quart just so happens to be the standard container size for ice cream. We're not saying you should fill this thing with Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl before your next trip, but we're not not saying it, either. For more information, visit www.evans-mfg.com.
For those of us in the Northeast, the fall rainy season is just around the corner. Among other things, this means it's time to stock up on umbrellas with cool handles (such as the Fashion Doorman from Rainkist Umbrella). Because nothing makes enduring three months of rain easier than a product that lets you pretend to be James Bond/Mary Poppins/one of several Batman villains. (Our favorite of which is "The Nerdler," a corrupted soul who gets paid real money to make jokes about Batman all day.) For more information, visit www.rainkist.com.

Breaking news: It's the year 2014 and people don't have to put up with their laptops' crummy speakers anymore. Thanks to portable speakers, like the Xsquare Portable Speaker from Sweda Company LLC, users the world over can listen to music in the way it was intended, i.e., sounding like an awesome rager of a concert instead of a lonely old drunk man playing a kazoo through a juice-box straw, to the chagrin of his fellow inmates.
