The bad news is that the extremely limited edition Sennheiser/Massdrop team up looks to have sold out already. A rep from the company tells TechCrunch, “With the popularity of the drop this morning, we nearly broke the internet.” Sales on the $200 headphones are currently halted… Read More

    Will.i.am is back with another weird gadget

    These days, musician is pretty far down on Will.i.am’s resume. The lead Black Eyed Pea has been kicking around the halls of CES a bunch over the past several years with a series of often odd takes on various consumer electronic categories. Remember the foto.sosho, the $475 iPhone camera case he launched with the guy who made the JooJoo/Grid 10? Or how about that giant Puls smart bracelet? Read More

    JayBird slims down the profile and pricing for its X3 Bluetooth earbuds

    By Bluetooth headphone standards, JayBird’s new X3 aren’t very sexy. Compared to the company’s recently released Freedom earbuds, they’re big and bulky. But that’s somewhat beside the point.

    As we hurtle noiselessly into a dystopian future, headphone makers have already started offering Lightning-only earbuds, something that should give early adopters some solace but might be a hard sell for folks with a shoebox full of tangled traditional earbuds. But the future is here and JBL Reflect Aware is the first active-noise canceling soldier in the battle against the headphone… Read More

    No, really, the headphone jack is more useful than you think!

    Apple today announced that the newest generation iPhone will do away with the headphone jack. Obviously sad if you just bought an expensive new pair of headphones, but the interface is used for a lot more than just pumping phat beats down your ear tunnels. From filmmakers to concerned parents, there’s a rich ecosystem of “appcessories” that use the headphone port for… Read More

  • Sony takes on Bose with new wireless headphones

    Sony takes on Bose with new wireless headphones

    Not every product briefing involves a large hidden speaker trucked in to reproduce plane noise. But Sony is clearly very psyched about the noise canceling capabilities of its new wireless headset. In fact, the reps who did the presentation even went so far as activating the white noise hum while I was listening to music, in order to effect surprise when I took them off. Fair play. And indeed… Read More

  • Libratone anticipates the end of the headphone jack with noise-cancelling Lightning earbuds

    Libratone anticipates the end of the headphone jack with noise-cancelling Lightning earbuds

    Only the tightly-lipped team in Cupertino can say for certain, but it sure appears as if Apple is ready to declare war on the headphone jack as we know it. Danish high-end speaker company Libratone is hedging its bets with a newly announced pair of headphones sporting a Lightning adapter – its first entry in the space, The upshot here, aside from potential future-proofing, is that… Read More
