If you’ve owned more than one iPod or iPhone, there’s likely a stash of unused white earbuds tucked away somewhere. Apple may have nailed it with their devices but for many, those now-iconic earbuds leave a lot to be desired. But you don’t have to give up style for sound quality.

It’s day two of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and the new products just keep a-comin’! Among the most popular items at the show are music accessories and specifically headphones/earphones, which are present and accounted for in abundance. Thankfully, Moshi Audio is rising above the din of the crowd with a new set of earphones aimed at audiophiles.
In the market for some new headphones or perhaps a charger or battery backup for your iOS device? It might be worth your time to stop by the Scosche booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show, which kicked off Tuesday in Las Vegas. The company is announcing new offerings in their Listen and Power product lines, but if you can’t make it to Vegas with us, read on for the details.
A good pair of headphones can make you feel the music instead of just hearing it. But any hip-hop producer can drop 808 beats so low that you feel them in your gut, and any headphone manufacturer can artificially pump up the bass to make their tiny speakers sound bigger than life. That doesn’t mean your headphones are good—it means you’re not listening to the music as it was produced and leveled. The Shure SRH940 headphones aim to balance the scales and change the game.
Following up on the success it had with the P5 headphones (March/11, 5 stars) and the Zeppelin Air iPod dock (June/11, 4.5 stars), Bowers & Wilkins is bringing its considerable audio experience to bear on the iPhone. The C5 headset is a killer set of earbuds that do double duty making phone calls, too.
The KNS-8400's are big in every sense of the word -- big sound, big size, and at $250 bucks they boast a pretty big price tag, too. Lucky for you, with just a comment and a little bit of luck these bad boys can be yours for free. In order to win them, simply leave a comment telling us about a time you saw or heard something big. It could range from a dubstep show to Godzilla riding a bicycle, just whatever you tell us about impress us with the scope!
They’re truly a great pair of headphones, and they could be yours soon! Get typing!
Headphones are a personal, subjective thing, and so is one’s affinity for the movie TRON. Monster’s T3 earbuds are a tie-in with the recent TRON remake—the website boasts that they feature “Disney’s futuristic styling and the phosphorous glow of the TRON universe.” Well, they don’t actually glow, and if we hadn’t been informed that they were TRON-related we never would have recognized the silver-and-blue TRON-ish T design on each earbud. But they are pretty cool looking.
After months of impatience and even a few pangs of longing, music fans in the U.S. can finally use Spotify, the European music-streaming phenom that promises access to any song, any time, anywhere. But of course even the latest and greatest in online streaming isn’t terribly impressive when you’re listening through the equivalent of a tin can and some string, so we were pleased when Sennheiser’s CX880i iPhone headset arrived just in time for us to pull some double duty testing them both.
