Excerpt: If you can’t wait for Apple’s iTV (or whatever it is called when released), you might want to try Griffin’s TuneCenter . TuneCenter will allow you to take iPod and play it through your television. What makes that different than using Apple’s iPod cables? Well, read on to find out. TuneCenter is what Griffin calls a “Home Media Center for iPod.” Basically, it is an iPod dock on steroids.
Summary: The headphone market is chock-a-block full to
bursting with good-quality models to satisfy you during your personal listening time.
It’s up to you to decide whether or not a pair of in-ear monitors is something you
really need and will use often enough to justify spending the nearly $500 Shure's E500s
will cost. To my ears, the E500s offer sound quality that's commensurate with their price
-- and more.
Conclusion: The Shure E500PTH are quite expensive headphones, but they sound absolutely fantastic, and the Push-To-Hear module is a brilliant idea. They're worth all of the 54,900 pennies.
Pros: Best sound quality of any in-ear headphones I've tested. Very comfortable. Compact and lightweight. Push-To-Hear (PTH) module is very handy when you need to hear outside sounds briefly. Great accessory set. Very efficient.
Cons: You pay through the nose for joy in your ears. Gain wheel on the PTH module is too recessed.
Conclusion: Finally one of those rare occasions where a bit of tech is practically perfect in everyway, great sound and even the ability to hear when you are being wolf whistled at by young ladies! We test out the most expensive earphones on planet earth.
Conclusion: In addition to the aforementioned cables, you also get a 23-centimetre extension cable, a 2.5mm to 3.5mm stereo adapter plug, a cleaning tool, a level attenuator (a small adaptor that controls master volume), and a sturdy oval carrying pouch. If you're the type who prefers uncompressed and lossless formats, require low-profile headphones, and don't mind investing in high-end earphones, the E500PTH headphones should be on your short list.
Pros: Pricey but a solid investment, Switch on push-to-hear controller feels cheap
Cons: Exceptional sound quality with a three-driver design, Comfortable and do a great job of passively blocking out noise, Includes push-to-hear control, Multiple ear adaptors and a nice set of accessories
