Audio-Technica ‘Headphones for Ladies’

As everybody knows, a woman's ears will blister and burn if exposed to headphones not purposefully designed for them.  So thank goodness for Audio-Technica's new headphone ranges "created especially for women", five sets of wired on-ear and in-ear models that will make feminists punch the air in delight.  As Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica's Consumer Marketing Manager gushes, "They combine attractive design with outstanding sound quality, portability and value, and come in a variety of appealing colors to match any style – or stand out in the crowd."  Blimey.

Curse of the Bluetooth Headset

Curse of the Bluetooth Headset

Since recent California legislation went into effect that bans talking on cell phones while driving, the sale of Bluetooth headsets has significantly increased.

Creative Fatal1ty X-Fi USB Headset

I remember back in the day when the name Fatal1ty was just first being heard around the internets. This was some kid that was making a real name for himself in the professional gaming world by dominating in Quake III Arena, and going on to win (or place very well) in dozens of professional tournaments.

Audio-Technica Japan have unveiled their latest headphones, the ATH-EQ700, which pack retractable cables to avoid in-bag tangling. With an adjustable over-ear clip and positionable driver angles to suit different ear shapes, they have a frequency range of 14 – 24,000Hz and 22 ohms impedance. Of course the clever part is the cabling: the cord between the two earphones can extend to up to 50cm, while the main cable can pull out to 1m.
