We're big Sleek Audio fans here at SlashGear, and we've known the company has been cooking up something special for the past six months or so. That project - the new flagship Sleek Audio SA7 in-ear monitors - has come of age just in time for IFA 2010, along with their upcoming refresh of the original SA6's, in the shape of the SA6-R (where the "R" stands for "Reference"). We jammed the carbon-fiber and machined aluminum SA7's into our ears for a preview.
$999 burning a hole in your pocket and a taste for high-end in-ear monitors just like the music mixing pros use? Head over to Ultimate Ears, where Logitech has roped in Capitol Studios to help them develop the Ultimate Ears In-Ear Reference Monitors. Custom molded and delivering up to -32dB noise isolation, the new monitors promise to put you in the musical sweet-spot where the producer was originally sitting.
Logitech has announced the addition of several new sets of earbuds to its Ultimate Ears line. I have used quite a few Ultimate ears headsets over the years and they generally sound very good and offer great bass. The new additions to the line include the Ultimate Ears 500 (pictured), 350, 200, 500vi, and 200vi.
It's no great secret that the hands-free kit Apple include in with the iPhone 4 isn't much cop when it comes to audio performance, and that's left plenty of room for third-party offerings promising aural loveliness at a range of prices. With an MRSP of $99.99 but a street price under $50, the Scosche IDR655m earphones promise "brilliant highs, silky smooth mids and powerful bass" together with the company's tapLINE II control system. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
One of the first things that many music phone and MP3 player buyers do is get a new set of earphones. The stock earphones that come with most devices like the iPod or iPhone are not very good. These stock earphones are also not typically very comfortable either.
Urbanears makes a wide range of headphones and earphones for music fans. The company has a new set of earphones out with some interesting tech to make them more comfortable and keep them in place called EarClick.
When I was a kid, I went hunting with my dad a few times before I realized that if you shot something you had to cut it open and clean it. It wasn't so fun after that. What I do recall is that one of the guys on his deer lease liked to pack a .45 because of all the snakes slithering around the place. When he would shoot the thing, he would poke an unspent bullet in each ear to muffle the sound a bit. These new Teknines Nine Millimeter Earphones from MUNITO remind me a lot of that strange dude.
Having officially unveiled their SA7 in-ear monitors this week, Sleek Audio are slowly pushing out more shots and information about the upcoming high-end earphones. Set to slot into the company's range above the existing SA6's, but for those audiophiles not interested in the Sleek Audio CT6 Customs, the SA7's are expected to launch within the next few months.
