Monster teamed up with rapper Dr. Dre a long time back to create a line of headphones that promise good sound and cool style. The line has sense branched out with other beats by Dr. Dre offerings that are branded by other artists like Lady Gaga and now Justin Bieber. If you are a fan of the Beeb you will be glad to know that Best Buy is the exclusive seller of the Justbeats for the holiday season.
You can hop over to Best Buy and pick up a set of these things, and leave your manhood behind at the same time. Best Buy only has the earbud iBeats listed on its site right now with the ControlTalk cable. They are selling for $119.95 and the ControlTalk cable will work with most iPods and the iPhone for controlling tracks.
Speakal is well known for making some crazy speaker docks for the iPhone, iPod and other MP3 players. The company has the iPig, iPanda, iBoo, and other docks that look like flowers or soccer balls. I have used Speakal products before and they actually sound good even if the look a bit strange. Speakal has announced a new device today called the Cool iPig.
The Cool iPig is a lot like the original iPig but with a different design that is a bit edgier. The new Cool iPig gets elongated eyes that look like sunglasses to me. Those eyes are the speakers and the nose has the controls for the tracks and more. The ears on top have motion controls for volume and other functions. The device can dock the iPhone and dockable iPod devices.
The product tie ins for the new Tron: Legacy flick are so widely varied that it's hard to see the tie in with some of the stuff. I have seen some clothing that looks like it was meant for strippers and all manner of toys and video games. We are also seeing audio gear and other electronics surface that tie in with the movie. Monster has unveiled a seriously high-end set of headphones that are the Daft Punk Edition Tron: Legacy headphones.
The headphones are very high-end with a price tag that will make many geeks blush. If you want a set of the headphones, you will need to cough up about $350 to get them. The headphones are on Amazon and at other locations right now and have a cool design that is inspired by costumes worn by Daft Punk in the movie cameo. In addition to the Tron design theme and white color, the headphones also light up like stuff in the Tron world.
I really like ThinkGeek. The site has some of the coolest stuff for geeks including toys, stuff you can eat or eat out of and clothing. I am particularly fond of the awesome Star Wars gear that they have. I also really like the cool drum kit shirt and guitar shirt that they have offered for a while now. ThinkGeek has announced that a new shirt is now shipping that goes right along with the other playable shirts. The new shirt is called the Electronic Music Synthesizer Shirt.
The shirt is offered in sizes for adults from Small to XXL and all sell for the same $29.99. The synthesizer on the front of the shirt can actually be played and you can press up to eight different keys at one time. The instrument has five different instrument sounds you can choose from and the sound comes out of a box that looks like a speaker you wear on your belt.
When it comes to high-end headphones and headsets, Sennheiser makes some of the coolest around. The company has all sorts of headphones from units for audiophiles to headphones made for use with your gaming system or iPod. Sennheiser also makes a lien of headphones that are just for the DJs out there. The latest set of headphones form Sennheiser is the HD 25-1-II and they are branded with Adidas.
The headphones are over the ear style and they are offered in black and blue color scheme with the three stripes that Adidas is famous for. The headphones have value ear pads that help block out room sounds and are padded for long-term ear and comfort. The transducers are dynamic closed units with a frequency response of 16 - 22000 Hz.
When most of us want to listen to our favorite music or watch a movie, we want to hear the audio not the noise in the room around us. This is particularly true for the user that travels a lot in a car, plane, or train where things can be noisy. Noise cancelling headphones are also a great way to block out noisy spouses and kids so you can get some work done. Audio-Technica has unveiled two new sets of noise cancelling headphones.
The new offerings include the ATH-ANC27 and the ATH-ANC25. The ANC27 set claims to block up to 85% of the noise in the room around you and the ANC25 version will block up to 80% of the noise. Both headphones use active noise cancellation and use high-efficiency drivers inside. Both of the headphone models are compatible with the iPhone and iPods as well as computers and in-flight entertainment systems.
