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 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 NOX Audio Scout headset review

Earbuds: love ’em or hate ’em it’s hard to argue with their eminent practicality if you’re the sort who finds him or herself going from point A to point B on a regular basis. They fit comfortably in a pocket, don’t screw up your ‘do and, if you get a decent pair, offer some surprisingly good sound. The $80 Scout headset from NOX Audio promises to do all that and act as a hands-free microphone for your phone. Plus it has a cable that looks so much like an al dente piece of linguini we couldn’t resist trying it. How does it taste in a white clam sauce and, more importantly, how does it act as a headset? Read on to find out.
