postheadericon EOps Noisezero i+ Eco earbuds get cornstartch construction, finger-friendly design (video)

Hard to say when (or if) these beauts will ever hit the market, but we’ve all ideas they’d move quite briskly if positioned in a nondescript kind of store that tends to sell fruit, peripherals and things heavily prefixed with “i.” Designed Michael Young has teamed up with EOps to create the Noisezero i+ Eco Edition earbuds, which are constructed with cornstarch (you know, in honor of Ma Earth), equipped with an iPod / iPhone-friendly inline remote and outfitted with a unique design that purportedly makes it easier for these to be inserted into one’s ear canal. We’re told that they’ll eventually be available in charcoal, rustic brown, midnight blue and sage green, and yes, a carrying case would be included. Too bad there’s nary a hint as to where you can actually buy ’em, but the video just below the break will give you a better idea of what to hunt for.

postheadericon Westone 4 earphones boast four drivers, on sale soon for $449

We’ve always had pleasant aural experiences with Westone earphones, and it’s not hard to hazard a guess that the outfit’s latest will also impress. The W4 is being hailed as the planet’s first four-driver universal fit earphone, boasting a foursome of balanced armature drivers, a three-way crossover and a self-proclaimed EPIC cable, which is supposedly able to “guard against microphones.” Further details are expected to be spilled at CES in just a couple of weeks, and they’ll be loosed on the public in early Q1 2011 for $449. Yeah, not exactly cheap, but nothing fit for an audiophile ever is.

postheadericon Jays flexes its design muscle with svelte a-JAYS Four earbuds

Tired of finding every set of decent ‘buds only available in the stereotypical white? Hello, beautiful! Jays has just outed its latest set of earbuds, the a-JAYS Four, and it seems that simplicity is the theme here. These guys rely on flat, tangle-free cabling and include an inline three-button remote that’s made for use with Apple’s iPod, iPhone and iPad. You’ll also get five different eartip selections, a handy L-shaped 3.5mm plug, MEMS microphone and a pair of 8.6mm speaker drivers that handle frequencies between 20Hz and 21,000Hz. Regrettably, we’ve no price or release date to share, but hopefully that’ll be cleared up in short order.

postheadericon Altec Lansing Muzx Ultra MZX606 earbuds review

We’ve always had a soft spot for Altec Lansing’s wide array of speaker docks — these guys have been embedded in that space for an awfully long time, and the quality has always seemed up to snuff in our eyes. Er, ears. For whatever reason, it looks as if Altec is trying to replicate that success in the earbud market — a market that’s been growing increasingly crowded over the past couple of years as the portable media player and smartphone sectors have exploded. These days, a set of third-party headphones are nearly a requirement to fully enjoy whatever media player you’ve ended up with, and thus, hordes of companies have flocked to cater to the demand. The Ultra MZX606 earbuds ($99.95) popped onto the scene just two months ago, and now we’ve had a solid weekend to push the latest Underoath, Happy Body Slow Brain, Kanye West and Otis Redding jams through here. Hop on past the break for our impressions.
