The Image headphones are tagged as being the world’s smallest and lightest available on the market right now. They have patented Contour Eal Gels that are anatomically designed to fit inside the ear canal. They are said to reduce ear fatigue as well as provide excellent noise isolation and increased bass response.

Each Image model will come in five different sizes so you can find your perfect fit. They have exclusive extended-frequency KG926 balanced micro-armatures and feature aluminum casing finished in anodized copper. They have aerodynamic shaped black tails which are flexible and reduce cable stress and help to damper and minimize noise.

Personally, if I create a device, and it’s the best there is, I don’t want it likened to a Bentley, in the car world, that’s small potatoes, liken my product to a McLaren F1, a Bugatti Veyron, or a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, not a Bentley. Then again, these don’t really appear to be even in the Bentley league, maybe the BMW of the audio world.

In fact these look like that house on the corner that used to be condemned but someone came along and threw a new paint job on it and is now selling it for a small fortune. These speakers claim to be of audiophile quality, and it sounds like they are even trying to compare their product to those $400 Bose PC speakers, but they look quite cheap.

These colossal works of audio art utilize a 3.5-way (what?) Tapered Array that has some new proprietary horn-loaded tweeter made from acoustic dampening materials, that last part seems like a step in the wrong direction, but I am sure they sound great, anyways, on with the specs. The mid’s are of an inverted dome design and then there are the three whopping woofers.
