I’m such a sucker for well-named products, especially when they’re a bit gimmicky, like these ‘Full Metal Jacket’ earbuds from Skullcandy, named after one of my favourite films of all time.
Not sure if Kubrick would approve, but I’m sure you will, as they’ve been ‘designed with Apple in mind’, allowing you to answer your calls, with an aluminium foil in-line microphone cable that slots into your iPhone, as well as listen to some Beethoven like Kubrick’s other famous protagonist. The frequency range is 16 – 20,000 Hz, with a max input of 500mW. Available in black, chrome and silver, they’ll be £62 when they’re released in June.
The purple and green buds you see up there are the new TiTAN earphones..
…which are designed to match your iPod, in hues of pink, red, violet, blue, green, grey and black.
With one-metre long cables, they, like the Full Metal Jackets, have COMPLYTM foam tips, an impedance of 16 ohms, and a frequency range of 20 – 20,000 Hz along with a 100mW max input power.
They’re more pocket-friendly than the FMJs, at just £38 when they launch in June.
