Want to customize, transform your audio environment? These buds do it.

One little gadget that I almost always have with me when I go out is the Doppler Labs DUBS filters. Whether it’s deciding, on a whim, to hit up a local venue for a live performance, or if I want to quiet the street noise while sitting and working at a coffee shop, my DUBS filters are there. It’s one of the best things you can get for $25. But now they’ve gone and outdone themselves.

It’s still ridiculous, even if they may just be singing along to playing music. Everyone should own a good Bluetooth earpiece. They work better than the built in microphones and speakers of more »

Could audiophiles be the next consumer sucker target?
