the goal standard

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro wakes up every day in a compound of a home in Madrid. A Mercedes, a Bentley, a Lamborghini, and a Rolls-Royce are parked outside. A closet of designer shirts are ready to accentuate his perfectly toned figure. A private jet sits on standby. And he tells himself something that would sound pompous if it weren’t, well, completely true: “I’m the best,” he says to Maxim a few days after he’s won his fourth Golden Shoe, the award for the most prolific goal scorer in Europe. “That I am the best is why I continue to improve. This is why I achieve so many great things.” The world knows him simply as Ronaldo, who wears #7 for Real Madrid. Ronaldo is everything that personifies a great soccer player—…

winning is the only thing

“The most important aspect of my personality, as far as determining my success goes, has been my questioning conventional wisdom, doubting the experts, and questioning authority. While that can be very painful in relationships with your parents and teachers, it’s enormously useful in life.” —Larry Ellison This is all kind of surreal,” Larry Ellison once told me over lunch. The man has a $48 billion fortune, and is the owner of the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament, an America’s Cup–winning sailing team, the 288-foot superyacht Musashi, an Italian Marchetti jet, a sprawling Japanese-style estate, a large swath of Malibu beachfront property, the Hawaiian island of Lanai, and a Hawaiian airline. “I don’t even believe it now. Not only did I not believe it when I was 14, but when I look…

all about that bass

Master & Dynamic MH40 This striking over-the-ears pair is all about full-day comfort, with buttery-soft lambskin ear cups and exposed stainless-steel articulation that conforms to your head size. $399 Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 How does B&O justify the H8’s price when noise cancellation and Bluetooth can be had for half the money elsewhere? With booming, merciless bass and a design that makes good use of high-end leather and lambskin. $499 HIFIMAN HE-560 With its new planar magnetic driver design, the HE-560 offers the pure, unblemished audio you expect from reference headphones—which aren’t meant to leave the home or studio—but at a noticeable reduction in weight. $899 Break in your new headphones with these tunes, recommended by metal men-in-the-know: David Castillo of Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, suggests: “Empty Harbor,” by Sannhet; “Slaves Beyond Death,”…

scope it out

There are three reasons you’d need a scope: You’re a hunter, a competitive shooter, or a military sniper. And take it from Corey Clancy, a guy who spent five years as a sniper in the Marines and another six for various government agencies: If you’re just a hunter, don’t go shooting from a mile away, even with the best scope. “Typically, hunters are going to stay within 500 yards of their target,” says Clancy, now lead instructor at the GPS Sniper School in Arizona. Anything longer than that, he says, and you’re unlikely to get that kill shot. Clancy helped vet our selection, which is aimed squarely at hunters. FLIR RS64 Assuming you aren’t a poacher, hunting at night means you’re probably hunting hogs. This thermal scope gives you four detection options…

drone army

Years ago, consumer drones were little more than toys—hightech offshoots of radio-controlled model airplanes. Today these robots are cameras with superpowers. Whether you’re an aspiring filmmaker looking to add a helicopter-style establishing shot to your short film, a daredevil hoping to document your next adventure from a bird’s-eye view, or just someone who wants to see what your backyard looks like from five stories up, there’s a flying machine out there waiting to do your bidding. DJI Phantom 3 Standard A drone is only as good as its camera, and the Phantom 3’s is a pro-grade, 2.7K-resolution shooter. It packs more image detail than most high-def cams, and its three-axis motorized gimbal fights rotor shake while delivering cinematic tracking shots. $799 3DR Solo By tracking your phone, the Solo becomes your personal aerial cameraman,…

world of wrangler

The iconic Jeep is more popular than ever. Jeep has built its brand on the authenticity of its off-roaders. The vehicles started as real-life Army equipment and in civilian life became peerless beasts that perform heroics on Nevada’s tortuous Rubicon Trail and the boulders of Moab, Utah. But the coolest part of a Jeep is its egalitarianism. Nearly anyone who can afford a new car can afford a Wrangler. The popular four-door Wrangler Unlimited starts at $27,295, which is well below the average $33,560 purchase price of a new car, according to Kelley Blue Book. And the Wrangler is having a moment: Jeep sales are up 23 percent compared with 2014, and the Wrangler breaks sales records every month. Off-Road The Staff Car (the custom tan Jeep pictured on the previous page and…
