Cold like Sweden
Other notables for 2010 so far have included not one, but two pairs of new ear bud headphones from cooling masters (no pun intended) Arctic Cooling out of Sweden, the land of cold noses.
The first set featured some rugged aluminum billet inserts for your ears combined with a tailored rubber bud to go on the end of each.
Basically, these are great; I use a set nearly every day. They sound fantastic and are under a hundred Australian dollars.
They also come in wood, which is a nice touch I thought. Having never tested any other wooden ear buds before, I had only their billet brother against which to make my appraisal.
After doing so, I found myself again rather impressed with what I found.
