Ep. 184: Insert lyrics here Video
Monster's Beat Solos challenge the established Bose On-Ear Headphones in the Prizefight ring. Who will bring the noise?
If you're looking for the best value in Bose headphones, the company's On-Ear model makes a strong case.
This week, Donald will just not_shut_up already, so Jasmine tries to impose a word cap on his ramblings (it fails). Items that are babbled upon include the overly bass-heavy Dr. Dre Beats Solo headphones, a potential Zii war between Nintendo and Creative, an itty-bitty $9 MP3 player, and a potential HD video player from Cowon. Also, Donald shoots Jasmine with lasers, and we drool over an ultra-quiet vacuum with a built in iPod speaker.
Tune in this week if you want to hear Donald and Jasmine talk about pretty much nothing. Also, Donald huffs bourbon throughout, Jasmine rants about Lady Gaga headphones, and both try to insert a little bit of news before the holiday break. But mostly, it's nothing. Be sure to check out CNET the week of January 4 for all the CES goodness, including a live podcast broadcast at 3PM on Friday, January 8.
The True Blood Revamp headphones feature V-Moda's signature low-end boost suitable for "modern music audiophiles" and the durable metal components ensure long-term structural integrity.
Priced at more than half the price of Bose's OE2i on-ear headphones, the comparable Sennheiser 238i headphones deliver a lot of bang for your buck.
The Bose OE2i iPhone headset and OE2 headphones are the company's second-generation travel-friendly on-ear models.
A late-night Monster event is host to Dr. Dre and P. Diddy as they launch three new headphones for the Beat line: the Beats Solo HD, the Beats Spin, and the Diddy Beats.
The V-Moda Crossfade LP headphones look good, feel durable, and offer plenty of desirable extras, but the clubby leaning to the sound space does not lend itself well to all genres of music. This set is best suited to DJs and dance music aficionados.
Built from tough materials designed to last and paired with a generous two-year warranty, the V-Moda Remix Remote headphones are top performers in the sub-$100 category on CNET and deserve your serious buying consideration.
