We recently featured a pair of iMuffs. Nope, it’s nothing dirty, iMuffs are a pair of wireless headphones made to work with iPods and Bluetooth phones. At Unplggd, we think that wireless is the way to go. However, the wireless revolution is coming about slowly. Fitting headphones inside a beanie or a headband is just the next step. On top of that, they are wireless. Now how cool is that?
With Black Friday coming up fast and Amazon promising up to 60% off on headphones, now might be the time to get those headphones that you’ve been lusting after. Wireless headphones are the next step, and they are useful. There is no telling how many times we’ve had trouble with our own headphone wires. That’s why at Unplggd, we think that it’s time to give wires the boot and go for some wireless headphones.
We’ve all had the problem. Either the cord is all tangled up, or it’s just mixed up. Wires are bad, and nowhere is this more apparent then when you are on the go with your iPod playing your favorite tunes. The wireless revolution is slowly touching all manner of new products. Having wireless headphones on your iPod is just so neat. Now wires, no fuss, no muss. With that being said, we’re proposing two solutions to your wireless life, suiting different budgets and different looks.
When you are cycling around town, listening to your iPod with noise-canceling earbuds isn’t the best idea. You get distracted and you won’t hear what’s happening around you. Thankfully, designer Seohyun Baek has come up with a solution to this problem, while keeping the music flowing to your ears.
Headphones are always a hassle. If you’re like us, it’s always a challenge getting the right pair. Plus there are so many on the market with so many features. It’s hard to make heads or tails out of them. Strangely enough, the Audio Bone earphones use bone conduction to make sounds reverberate in your bones. Sounds weird?
These new earphones from Thanko are the perfect fashion-meets-tech accessory that we’ve seen in recent months. The new Sound Lives Magnetic Earphones are offered in a variety of different styles, from a soccer ball, skull, cross bones and panda design. These earphones double as earrings, allowing you to continue to listen to your music while still looking fashionable.
My old iPod headphones were falling apart. I ‘borrowed’ my wife’s earphones, buy they broke apart. I spent two weeks without any mobile earphones. At home, I use a set of cheap Philips SHP 805. I know, they are cheap. I’ve got a pair of $300 Sennheisers in storage and my DJ headphones, Sony MDR700DJs are in Taiwan. Both headphones have broken jacks. Happens to me all the time, because they are permanently plugged into my computer, they get tossed around a bit and the jacks will break.
Anyway, I wasn’t about to get a Shure SE 530 for now, it’s not in my budget. The guy in the shop actually recommended the JVC pair, over similar Sennheisers and JBL. Naturally, I had a budget. I wasn’t going to spend more than $70. In the end, I’m pretty happy with the result. They are in-ear headphones and really stick inside, without falling out. Sound quality is very decent and since they stick into the ear canal, they adequately block out sounds from the outside world.
Do you ever get the feeling that your headphones aren’t light or fast enough? There is no need to worry about that anymore, because Phiaton came out with a pair of carbon-fiber headphones. The Phiaton MS 400 Moderna will match that Ferrari Enzo perfectly and come decked out in carbon-fiber and red leather.
In the midst of all of the hype of Apple’s Let’s Rock event, you might not have noticed this nice addition to the Apple product line: a pair of premium in-ear headphones that have an integrated subwoofer and a tweeter. What’s so nice about these? Well, there is the fact that they will only cost $79.
