Sennheiser Ambeo headset with 3D audio recording will include Apogee tech

During CES 2017, Sennheiser took the wraps off a unique pair of earbuds that feature microphones built into the ear pieces for binaural audio recording. While binaural audio is nothing new, the ability to record it has largely been limited in the consumer world.

Just a few weeks ago, LG formally started the retail availability of one of its weirder TONE headsets, the LG TONE Studio. This time, it is launching its other odd headset.

QCY Q29 Wireless Earbuds Review: AirPods on a budget

QCY Q29 Wireless Earbuds Review: AirPods on a budget

Apple's AirPods have made untethered Bluetooth earbuds mainstream, but the design itself -- that is, two untethered wireless ear pieces -- has been around for years. Go back far enough, and you'll find early models like the Sennheiser MX W1, a pair of big, clunky but functional earbuds that provided stereo audio without a wire tethering them together.
