It's not always practical for gigging DJs to wrap a pair of hefty cans around their heads when selecting or preparing tracks on a portable music player, smartphone or tablet, but even high-end earbuds might not cut the mustard when it comes to the specific audio needs of today's digital pancake turner. Pioneer's Professional Sound and Visual Division has developed some enclosed inner-ear headphones specially tuned for mixing and playing on the move.  Read More

Today, companies the world over are looking to crack the wearable technology market, especially in terms of fitness tracking.

Gizmag reviews Phiaton's MODERNA MS 200 in-ear earphones

The Phiaton Corporation (a subsidiary of Korean audio veterans Cresyn) has added a new member to its purist-pleasing MODERNA Series headphones. The bold red and black design of the MS 200 half-in-ear earphones is certainly an attention-grabber and the carbon fiber panels are sure to provide conversation fodder, but how do these undeniably stylish phones actually perform? Gizmag has spent the last few weeks exploring that very question ... and we're suitably impressed.  Read More

The STREET by 50 in-ear wired headphones from SMS Audio

Dr Dre, Jay-Z and Ludacris aren't the only rappers to have given their names to audio headgear. Record producer, actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist 50 Cent has also released some cans through SMS Audio. Earlier this year the existing wired and wireless over-ear headphones were joined by the STREET by 50 in-ear wired headphones and Gizmag has spent some time getting to grips with a pair. SMS Audio says that the main focus when developing the earbud-type earphones "was to create a sound signature that is suitable for many genres of music and not just rap/hip-hop." So how did they shape up?  Read More

The CX 890i headset sports a glass-like finish and metal detailing in a clear bid to catch the eye of audiophiles who like their music hardware on the minimalist side, while the CX 985 and MX 985 feature a less unusual but still rather striking metal alloy finish.  Read More

Griffin Technologies has just released some new eye- and ear-pleasing earbud-type earphones that come with a slice of eco-friendliness, too. The outer housing of the WoodTones Earbuds is made from bits of exotic scrapwoods rescued from the workshop floors of furniture and cabinet makers, which is said to add volume without distortion or coloring while also bringing mid-range frequencies to the fore and delivering even, solid bass.  Read More
