Moshi Mythro earphones: quality sound, budget price Video Transcript
Hi. I'm David Carnoy, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here with the Moshi Mythro in-ear headphones. Now the name is inspired by an element in the Tolkien novels Mithril that's lighter than metal and yet a lot stronger than metal, and there's a bit of aluminum in the housing here so it's not an all-plastic in-ear headphone, but it is rather inexpensive earphone at around $30. What's nice about it is that it is lightweight and comfortable. It also sounds very good for the money. It does have an integrated microphone with a 1-button remote; that remote is a call answer/end button as well as a skip track forward and back button. You tap it twice to skip a track forward and tap it 3 times to skip back. It won't work with all phones, but it is designed to work with iOS devices. Couple other small things worth mentioning, this does come with 3 silicone eartips, and the nice thing about these eartips is that there are color-coded. There's a little bit of red on the inside of one that allows you to tell the difference between right and left without having to look for those little letters. While these earphones seem well-built, I can't say how durable they are. They do come with a standard straight plug, not an L-shaped plug, but in the 2 weeks that i used them I didn't have a problem with them. That said, they don't come with any sort of carrying case. As far as their sound goes, what's impressive about them is they do have a lot of bass, good detail as well, so it's a pretty aggressive earphone, not necessarily for everyone but for a lot of today's listeners and a lot of today's music, it is a good earphone. It's also a good value at $30. I'm David Carnoy and that's the Tolkien-inspired Moshi Mythro in-ear headphone. Thanks for watching.
The Moshi Celesta Keyboard looks good and works well, but a few design missteps and a lofty price tag prevent us from giving it a full recommendation.
The company's sleek $120 in-ear headphones feature ceramic earpieces and clean sound.
For around $7, the iLuv City Lights are well-designed budget earphones, but they push the bass a little too hard at the expense of clarity.
The Sleek Audio SA6 earphones deliver above-average sound quality and an unprecedented modular design, but there are better earphones available in this price range.
The Candy Comfort Earphones are a fun replacement for stock earbuds that offer a reasonable upgrade in fit and comfort, but don't expect good sound quality.
The MEElectronics M6 earphones are a great value for bass-addicts, thanks to solid sound quality, a rugged design, and plenty of features.
The NEC MultiSync LCD1970VX is a reasonably priced, well-designed LCD that will fit most users' needs for flexibility and image quality.
The Nokia BH-801 is a simple yet attractive Bluetooth headset that fits comfortably and offers decent sound quality.
The Tivoli Audio iSongBook is attractively designed and offers decent features, but it should sound better at this price.
Although sound quality isn't the greatest, the Skullcandy Smokin' Buds provide a funky design and some compelling features for the price. They're a solid budget option for music phone owners.
