When you are young, you desire certain items because all of your friends have them. I remember begging my Mum for those hideous sports trousers with the snaps all up the side of the legs, and when I got them, I hated how cold and uncomfortable they were. As you get older the opposite happens, and you begin to crave the things nobody else has. Aedle VK-2’s are beautifully handcrafted, limited production headphones with only one hundred units being created each month.
The tagline for these headphones is, “Be Entertained While Showing Courtesy to Others”, or translated it means, “Yes Dad, I know you don’t want to listen to Mum and I gossiping but that doesn’t mean you can whack the volume up on the TV every time I come around.” More specifically they have been designed to allow you to hear the dialogue during a movie without the sound effects and moments of action waking up the entire house or aggravating your neighbours, they also allow you to watch something with colourful language without making the ears on young children bleed.
The Urbanears Plattan 2 Bluetooth are quite beautiful to behold - available in 5 stylish colours: True White, Tomato, Dark Grey, Black and Indigo (by far my favourite colour and the sample we received), this minimalist design isn’t just a pretty package but also comes with 30+ hours of wireless playtime from a single charge.
THEY’RE HERE!!! We have been waiting for these beauties to hit the shelves for a while and we weren’t disappointed, the Earin Headphones are one of the first completely wireless headphones to hit the market, along with Bragi’s Dash they are taking on the difficult task of being the FIRST. Earin was founded in 2013 in Sweden and wanted to create a fully wireless headphone without compromising on the sound quality and in three years they have delivered these smart little things.
These headphones try to give you everything all at once for a low price but do they deliver? The Ausdom M05 are wireless Bluetooth headphones with a built in microphone that allows you to take calls. Starting with aesthetics I was impressed with the build quality for the price and they are pleasant to wear with sufficient padding around the ears and on the adjustable headband, the ear pieces also pivot all the way round so you can lay them flat in your bag which is convenient.
For me and probably most people when you see the brand Marshall you think of huge amps and cabinets, rock concerts and the possibility of crowd surfing and then thinking against it as you could just crash to the bottom of the pit. I had no idea that they had branched out into headphones and having had a look into their collection they have quite a range of other tech including their own smartphone called London.
