iPod Headphones and Earbuds
But you have to be in NYC and enjoy hanging out with millennials to win them.
A sonic fashion statement.
Remember when headphones were built to last longer than an iPhone upgrade cycle?
It’s a banner day for ears.
Good headphones are a pleasure, and to not be tethered to a cord is even better.
For when you’d rather enjoy your music than get “beat” by it.
Noteworthy. Superb. Amazing. Take your pick, because the V-Moda XS headphones are each of those things and quite a bit more. V-Moda blends aggressively gorgeous and ergonomic design with outstanding audio engineering for headphones that look and sound like nothing else out there.
Audio company Brainwavz has added a new model to its lineup last month specifically focused on sportier listening. The S5 in-ear headphones offer a flat cable with an over-the-ear design to ensure a better fit, especially during athletic activities. They also feature a high quality driver setup for superior audio.
Earbuds are many things: wireless, sweat proof, noise isolating, stylish, and custom fitted. But they aren’t all these things at once, forcing you to choose different earbuds for different situations. OwnPhones, which recently launched on Kickstarter, aims to change that by giving you a pair of custom fitted, personalized Bluetooth earbuds that are built to match your ear and your style.
“Humlan…is an on-ear headphone for those of you who appreciate fresh laundry as much as you do good sound.” It’s rare I’ll start a review off with a quote from the company’s website, but I had to call attention to that line. I mean, I think I appreciate both, but this is the first time fresh laundry and good sound have applied to the same item. The Urbanears Humlan headphones are, in fact, washable…in part.
I ask not because I’m about to present the answer, but because A-Audio claims to already have the answer, and they say, “Yes.” Their claim that headphones have become little more than a popular fashion accessory can certainly be backed up by watching any sports-related press conference these days, and they’re looking to provide a better balance between fashion and performance with the A-Audio Legacy headphones.
With their Momentum line of on-ear headphones, it seems Sennhesier is looking to create an entire movement, not just a set of quality cans. I think they’re succeeding on both counts. The Momentum on-ear headphones offer excellent audio with a style that’s more about your personal tastes than those of whoever’s logo is on the side.
