Hearing the Difference with Able Planet Headphones

Clear Harmony Able Planet
We recently visited Able Planet at CES, and were able to hear the difference when using their headphones. Their Linx Technology was the focus of the event and it was certainly an improvement for higher frequencies when jamming to your headphones.

Now when purchasing Able Planet headphones, some really cool gifts are included. Each of the Able Planet headphone lineup all has an Apple iPod to allow you to keep enjoying your music on a portable device capable of high-fidelity audio playback.

Clear Harmony with iPod TouchThe top of the line Able Planet Clear Harmony 1100B over-ear, noise-canceling headphones are a great option to consider for audiophiles who want to get the best out of their music. The Linx Technology can also help when trying to really juice out the high frequencies in your music. You don’t have to be obsessed with your music quality to appreciate these headphones either – their noise reduction makes them great for travelers. They’re also durable enough to be an option for a DJ and any music lover can really appreciate how these sound. Their gift is an iPod Touch, which is the ultimate portable multimedia device. Now you can take whatever entertainment you want on the go and enjoy the sounds with Able Planet headphones.

Sound Clarity Able PlanetAlso a favorite is the Sound Clarity NC500SC over-ear headphones by Able Planet. These headphones are comparable to the Clear Harmony series, except the drivers aren’t as large so they cannot attain the same output you find on the Clear Harmony. The Sound Clarity, however, is a great series to consider for the same type of listener, just a better budget option. This also includes an iPod Nano as a gift to help you keep your music on the go.

Finally, the True Fidelity NC300B headphones are the perfect option for those looking to try out their first high-grade set of headphones. Also great for those on a budget, these feature the Linx technology found on other high-end Able Planet headphones. They also feature active noise cancellation. You’ll get an iPod Shuffle when you go with these True Fidelity headphones.


This Holiday Season, Treat Yourself to Superior Earbud Headphones from Klipsch

Ever since Apple revealed the iPod back in 2001, those little white earbuds that conveniently come with Apple’s portable media players have been ubiquitous. Heck, it’s near impossible nowadays to walk down the street without seeing several people wearing them. Now, while those earbuds might satisfy the average, casual listener, people who want more impact from their music have to look elsewhere. Well, if you’re one of those people, look no further.

The Klipsch Treatment

Since 1946, Klipsch has been making stellar quality audio products and the Image Series earbuds are certainly a grand addition to their catalog. Specifically, these black S4i earbuds have a frequency range of 10-19,000 Hz, going below and beyond the range of human hearing to reproduce infrasonic elements of your favorite music that you might never have known were there without headphones like these. Plus, with Klipsch’s proprietary noise-isolating technology, you can fully immerse yourself in your music like a true fan* should. These beauties also come with 3 sized pairs of washable ear tips (yes, washable. Aural hygiene is important!): Small, Medium and Large. They’re also available in white: Klipsch Image S4i (White), for those of you who may have grown comfortable with the Apple earbud design.

More Than Just Another Set of Headphones

As if all that wasn’t enough, these Klipsch earbuds also include a 3-button microphone and volume remote on the wire (see above image) for full control of your iPhone, iPod touch or regular iPod (be sure to check the compatibility list in the product description). Don’t feel left out, Android users! Klipsch has earbuds for you, too: Klipsch Image S4A (Black). Android users will want to download the free Klipsch Control App to customize the functionality of your calls and music through the single button remote. Despite that slight difference, both of these models have a 360° pickup mic with advanced echo cancellation built-in, so your callers will be able to hear you well in nearly any environment. If you’re concerned about the tenacity of the cable, fret not dear reader(s). The cable is not only durable, but tangle resistant as well. Who needs all the fussing with knots when all you want is to enjoy music?! Certainly not this writer.

Make sure to pick up a set for you and yours soon, ’cause they’re flying out of our warehouse as we speak! (Well, as I write and you read. You get the point.)
