SOUL by Ludacris Audio Equipment Shipping Inside May 2011

SOUL by Ludacris Audio Equipment Shipping Inside May 2011

That's this month! They'd better get them out the door if they expect them to make good on their word, and by they I of course mean SOUL by Ludacris. This is a series of headphones and earbuds right along the same lines as Beats by Dre and the now-defunct Sleek by 50. What we're looking at hear is three different models of headphone, two different models of earbud, all of them in conservative, muted tones like white, black, gray, and a few rogues like bright red, blue, and the most excellent gold-plated SL300s.

MB&F HM3 ReBel timepiece channels bikers, James Dean, the filthy rich

MB&F HM3 ReBel timepiece channels bikers, James Dean, the filthy rich

We're used to bizarre timepieces from MB&F, and while the company's new HM3 ReBel - R for right (hand), B for Black (case) - timepiece may not rock the fey owl look, it's still pretty darn unusual. The "rebels" in this case are those who want to wear their watch on the right wrist, rather than the left; they also have to be well-heeled, since only 18 of the HM3 ReBel pieces will be made.

The Prospect of an Apple Television Bores Me

The Prospect of an Apple Television Bores Me

Through the many years I’ve been covering the technology industry, I’ve always enjoyed Apple rumors. From the absurd to the downright obvious, there is no limit to what people will say about Apple’s plans for the future. But as of late, I’ve been most intrigued by continued rumors that Apple is working on a television that would pit it against some of the best plasma and LCD makers in the business.

Signeo SOUL by Ludacris headphones: rappers really love audio tech

Signeo SOUL by Ludacris headphones: rappers really love audio tech

If 50 Cent reckons he can have the whole CES 2011 celebrity rapper headphone endorsement market to himself, he needs to think again. The Sleek Audio "Sleek by 50 Cent" cans have some competition from Ludacris, who has lent his name to Signeo USA for them to slap on the SOUL by Ludacris headphones.

SOUL won't just consist of a single pair, either, but five different models: the High Definition Professional SL300 Powered Noise Cancelling headphone, High Definition On-Ear models SL150 and SL100, and the SE99 and SE49 High Definition In-Ear headphones. Each gets noise cancellation technology and "ultra precise audio mix balancing."

Xenatec Maybach Cruiserio custom coupe offers Germanic excess

Xenatec Maybach Cruiserio custom coupe offers Germanic excess

Perhaps we don't have the mindset of a suitably rich plutocrat, but we always thought the main point of Daimler's exceedingly ostentatious Maybach line-up was to sit in the back and let the chauffeur worry about the twisty stuff ahead. That message doesn't seem to have made it to German coachbuilder Xenatec, which has kicked off production of its Cruiserio project, turning the Maybach 57 S into a two-door coupe.

Strand Design 166 superyacht has sportscar garage, optional bullet-proof Samurai leather

Strand Design 166 superyacht has sportscar garage, optional bullet-proof Samurai leather

You might remember Gray Design's Strand Craft 122, a sleek, curvaceous yacht which integrated a garage for a sports car to take you from the marina to your choice of restaurant. For some, though, a mere 122 feet is far too unimpressive; what they'll be wanting is the Strand Craft 166, a new superyacht that has the same handy garage but a whole lot more space on-board.
