Eco-friendliness isn't my biggest concern when it comes to buying headphones, but I guess even Greenpeace likes listening to music, so designer Michael Young has created these recyclable over-the-ear cans as a follow-up to his cornstarch earbuds.
While I don't generally recommend wearing a set of DJ headphones while assaulting Nazi-held beachheads, knowing that these limited-edition over-ear cans could quite likely survive being run over by a tank is oddly reassuring.
Altec Lansing is excited about their A1, A2 and A3 in-ear monitors. They've always produced quality products, but now they've gone all out to not only design a triple-balanced armature, but also develop a custom ear molding using a unique silicone.
Audio-Technica makes lots of sophisticated audio products that are totally affordable. And then there's this new array of gear. These two pairs of headphones with a matching headphone amp are total audio extravagance.
Just because you don't want to spend thousands of pounds on audio equipment (and as many hours configuring it) doesn't mean you can't enjoy quality audio. In the case of headphones, a single c-note can reap rewards.
If you won't listen to headphones unblessed by a rapper's licensing deal—and neither Dre nor Ludacris are good enough for you—look to 50 Cent. The former rapper turned Vitamin Water kingpin's newest headphone is here.
As great as great graphics are, splendiferously blasting sound can be just as gratifying. Sometimes we take sound for granted, or just don't care about it—but with Sony's great new 7.1 wireless surround headphones, you will care.
Watch out Dre, 50-Cent's not your only competition. Soon you might not be buying Bose's on-ear headphones just because they're the cheapest one's the company has to offer — the new Bose OE2 headphones have a refreshed street-ready design.
Seems like every musician you can name has a pair of headphones with their name on 'em. Dr. Dre, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Quincy Jones, Ludacris, Bob Marley, and Miles Davis. We need a battle royale! Well, here you go...
It's been ages since I've mentioned Dre and 50 Cent in the same breath, but 50's new SYNC headphones remind me that he was once one of his proteges. These cans are pretty much his answer to the Beats by Dre headphones.
Incase makes…headphones? Yep. The iPhone case maker and all around Apple accessory extraordinaire is dipping their toe into audio and like all the gear you've come to expect from Incase, the detail and build quality is awesome. But what about the sound?
