Turtle Beach has announced an answer to that problem with a new set of headphones for the PS3 called the P21 Gaming Headset. The headset has an inline amp for good sound and deep bass. The amp is powered by a USB connection to the PS3.

Q-Sound Solar Bluetooth headphones are from the futureThis pair of headphones is clearly from the future. No doubt sent here to protect young John Connor’s ears and keep him listening to his tunes in style, so that he can one day be a kick-ass leader. At least, that’s what I’m guessing judging by how awesome they look. This is the Q-Sound headphone concept from Shepeleff Stephen and the design is simply amazing.

It looks great and also uses solar technology. That’s a solar panel running across the headband, where it will always catch the sun. The Q-Sound, being a concept, would also take calls or plug into a 3.5mm jack if you need it to.

Apple confirms proprietary chip in shuffle headphones, licensing fee

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2009

Apple confirms proprietary chip in shuffle headphones, licensing feeA bunch of news broke over the weekend regarding the proprietary headphones required by Apple’s new iPod shuffle. Now that it’s Monday some of the info is cleared up and we can let you in on it. Both Macworld and Boing Boing Gadgets have now confirmed with Apple and third-party vendors that the new shuffle headphones contain a proprietary control chip. And that headphone makers have to pay to license it from Apple.

It’s bad news for sure, but apparently the chip isn’t encrypted, so it’s easily cloned by companies who don’t want to play that game. But those products would be pretty doomed in the marketplace.

New iPod shuffle requires adapter for third-party headphonesThe new voice-enabled iPod shuffle. It’s like Stephen Hawking is there to guide you through your songs in between constantly touching your earbuds wire. I’ll be honest, I think it’s a lame move. A gimmick. One designed to get more money out of the consumer and give you nothing extra.

It has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, but it’s controlled by proprietary headphones. Non-Apple headphones will require a special adapter that includes the required three-button controller. According to Apple they are working with third parties to put other compatible ear phones on shelves.

Antler Headphones will get you shot in the woodsHere’s a great redneck way to listen to your favorite tunes. Preferably outdoors, where you aren’t poking holes in the wall. But if you have to sit in the woods while rocking out, be careful that some hunter doesn’t take a shot at you, otherwise you and your headphones will end up on his trophy wall looking like the lovechild of Bambi and Elton John.

More likely you’ll just wear these around town at night and it will lead to reports of strange sightings of a new man-beast with antlers.

JVC’s HP-DX700 wooden headphonesIf you’ve wanted to get in on JVC’s high-end wooden headphones, but lacked the extra thousand bucks required, here’s some potential good news. This pair should be a bit more affordable. The HP-DX700 boasts a frequency range of 5Hz to 30kHz, with 64-ohm impedance and 101dB per mW.

We’d like to tell you more, but those are all the specs we have. Users of such high-end woody ear-gear will tell you that the wood gives the sound a richer, warmer tone. And while JVC hasn’t revealed a price or release date as yet, we don’t know how much you’ll save over the previous DX-1000, but the wait should be worth it.
