postheadericon ‘Soul by Ludacris’ headphone series priced from $69 to $299, shipping in May

You know what they say — if you can’t Beat ’em, undercut ’em. Signeo’s Soul by Ludacris headphone series — which made its debut a couple of months ago at CES — has just been priced, and sure enough, each pair is cheaper than what Dr. Dre and co. are charging for the HP Beats assortment. The top-end SL300 is set to sell for $299, while the similarly styled SL150 goes for $199. The more conventional SL100 will list for $149, and if it’s earbuds you’re craving, the SL99 will sport an MSRP of $99 while the low-end SL49 offers itself for just $69. Specifics on each one are hosted up after the break, and Americans can expect to see the whole crew this May. As for everyone else? There’s no time table yet, but we’ve been assured by the company that international distribution is being worked on as we speak. Word.

postheadericon Earbud / alarm clock takes the comfort out of sleeping

Love sleeping with earbuds in? Hate setting your smartphone in its alarm dock before you go to bed? The folks at Thanko have unveiled a little something called EARINALM which may be right up your alley. The premise is pretty straightforward: it’s a set of earbuds that contains an alarm clock, stopwatch, and a calendar. The package includes a USB adapter of charging. Yours now for a mere ¥2,980, or roughly $35. The As Seen On TV infomercials practically write themselves.

postheadericon Etymotic EB1 and EB15 earplugs hands-on

Etymotic, a company we’ve seen here at CES and in the past, has developed a pair of earplugs that protect your hearing against things like loud explosions and gunfire. The EB1 and EB15 Electronic Blast PLG Earplugs, retailing for $449 and $499, respectively, are aimed toward buyers such as hunters, musicians and soldiers — folks who are exposed to loud noises and need protection. The analog earpieces are powered by a 312 hearing-aid battery and will last three weeks. There’s no on/off switch — just a high and low gain control. High gain is used for environments that require an amplification and the opposite applies for low gain. In other words, if a soldier is out on the battlefield and needs to hear an enemy inside a house, he’d switch to high gain to generate a louder sound. The difference between the plugs is simple: the EB1 is for people who are going to be around one-off noises and the EB15 are for those who are going to be exposed to prolonged noises. We got a chance to test out the plugs on the loud show floor and we gotta say, the difference between high- and low-gain modes is easily recognizable and we feel like these earplugs will make superb head-hole protectors. Plenty of complicated graphs and numbers in the gallery below.

postheadericon Wicked Audio’s 3D headphones aren’t what you think, border on unsightly

Okay, so maybe “border” is being generous. Wicked Audio is well known for its — shall we say, vivacious — line of earbuds and headphones, but none compare to the outfit’s new 3D series of cans. Set to officially debut at CES next week, this line actually has embossed logos on each ear cup, enabling you to “feel” the graphics on the side. Hard to say who exactly this benefits, but for those who love raised artwork upside their noggins, we suppose it’s perfect. As for specs? Keep dreaming — all we know is that you’ll be choosing the least offensive design from the three above next month when they go on sale for $29.99 at FYE.
