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 Harman AKG K830 BT and K840 KL wireless headsets review

Great wireless headphones are tough to do right. There are so many problems in the way, most notably that there are no wires involved. AKG’s K840 KL 2.4GHz and K830 Bluetooth on-ear headphones offer the promise of something a little nicer than the poor reception and sound quality we usually hear from untethered products. Do they do to the “premium” label justice? Read on, righteous spectrum surfer, for our full review of the ‘phones.

Philips FloatingCushions headphones, have you on cloud nine
Comfort is certainly the aim for Philips’ new SH series headphones, and they certainly have a compelling case. The magic behind these lightweight cans is FloatingCushion, which is essentially just memory foam that seals nicely around your ears for both comfort and reduced audio loss. Simple, but seemingly effective. No word on whether these softhearted headphones will make it to the US, but according to Pocket-lint there will be six of these in total, four of which being a Bluetooth SHB9100 model, an over-the-ear SHP8000, and two folding compact SHL9000 variants (one with in-line remote and mic). Head over to the via link for some hands-on pics.

postheadericon New SteelSeries gaming headsets come to CeBIT, now iPhone compatible

As you might have heard, a little something called CeBIT is going down in Hanover, and all the usual suspects are there. And that includes the kids at SteelSeries, who are debuting three more headsets for the gamers in the crowd. Siberia v2 for PS3 is compatible with the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac, featuring 50mm driver units, leather earcups, and a retractable microphone for your clumsy pick-up attempts while playing Assassin’s Creed. This bad boy also features independent volume controls for game action and conversation, as well as LiveMix audio presets. But wait — there’s more! The company’s Siberia v2 and SteelSeries 7H headsets are now available in Apple-approved flavors with a single 3.5mm jack for audio and voice, an inline remote, and compatibility with your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad. Look for the Siberia v2 for PS3 in Q3 2011 for $120 MSRP. Look for SteelSeries 7H and Siberia v2 for iPod, iPhone and iPad soon for $130 and $100 respectively. PR after the break.

postheadericon Westone ES5 custom in-ear monitors review

If you’re into high-end audio gear and especially custom solutions, you’ve probably heard of a company called Westone. In operation since 1959, the firm has decades of experience crafting in-ear headphones and audio gear, and it doesn’t look like they’re stopping any time soon. We had a chance to get our ears molded back at CES so we could check out the company’s top-of-the-line model, the ES5, and now we’ve had some proper time to put them through the paces and see whether they live up to the hype — head past the break for the nitty gritty.
