Maxell’s M&M Earbuds will melt in your ears, not in your handiPod accessory maker Maxell is all set to release some music player earbuds that look like kid’s candy. Hmmm. I wonder if some young and dumb kids will try to eat them. I’m guessing yes. Even the packaging makes them look delicious. Plus, just like the candy, these earbuds come in many colors: Red, pink, blue, orange, and white.

You’ll note that the packaging proclaims “Sweet sounds”, which to a toddler who can’t read, simply says “Look at the funny candy people who want me to eat them.” It does say “Not candy!” but anyone old enough to read that probably knows better anyway. At $10, it’s a bargain choking hazard for the home with a curious toddler.

Webcam equipped headphones put eyes over your ears

Webcam equipped headphones put eyes over your earsSeems like we have webcams in everything these days. They’re in everything and they are everywhere. It must have occurred to someone that the one place they missed was our ears. Which is a strange place for webcams, as we usually use them for other’s faces.

That’s what makes this so odd. This headphone/webcam combo will show you everything that is on your side. Maybe designer Andy Kurovets is just really paranoid. Maybe he has enemies that use his blind spots to their advantage. But chances are he just wanted to look like some fashion forward Sci-Fi dude.

Memorex has introduced a new line of in-ear headphones called the EB series. The line includes the EB100, EB200, and EB300. All three of the models have a 3.9-foot long cord and a 3.5mm gold-plated plug.

Onkyo MHP-UW2 iPod wireless headphones

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 9th, 2008

Onkyo MHP-UW2 iPod wireless headphonesHow great was the advent of wireless? Wires suck. Wires trip people, electrocute,strangle unsuspecting users and just generally get in the way. Headphones wires are no exception. The Onkyo MHP-UW2 Bluetooth headphones come with an emitter that attaches to your iPod and broadcasts music for up to 8 hours on a full battery.

Recharging takes 3 hours via conventional AC adaptor or USB. The headphones look pretty cool, but the problem here is the emitter. It’s huge and fugly and kind of offensive, like a ball and chain. Not really wireless. You didn’t buy a small iPod just to make it huge later, now did ya?. In fact, it kinda looks like a pogo stick for your iPod. The price is $200.

These headphones are from the Greenhouse electronics company and clearly inspired by our favorite bat and spider. In fact you can choose from 13 different models, all with a frequency response of 20Hz-20,000Hz, an impedance of 16 ohms, and a maximum input of 3 megawatts.

They use a semi-circular design that doesn’t cover your whole ear, that way some background noise is still heard. The unit is wireless with a bluetooth module that connects to the headphone jack in your mp3 player. Excellent concept that will surely find a market.

Listening to Metallica on headphones is a new way of listening? If you say so Bob. Expect to pay for the privilege, these headphones won’t be cheap. But if you absolutely worship the band go ahead and get yourself a pair.
