Blue announces Lola headphones, a follow-up to Mo-Fi

High-end microphone manufacturer Blue has just debuted its second pair of headphones, following after last year's impressive Mo-Fi. The new Lola headphones feature a similar design, but cut down on weight and offer a more comfortable fit.

Inateck BH1001 Bluetooth sport earbuds mini-review

Gone are the wired shackles of past headphones and earbuds -- we live in the wireless age, and with it comes freedom from wires. That's what makes certain wireless earbud models a little bizarre. You've likely seen them; they feature a thick plastic neckband which wraps behind the neck and rests on the shoulders. That's large, garish, and for many users, uncomfortable.

Batband headphones: an “ear-free” audio headband

Personal music sessions in public places often happen with one earbud in and one earbud out -- this way you can hear others nearby and your music at the same time.
