Denon's second pair of high-end headphones, the AH-D2000 model, takes the best features of the pricey AH-D5000s, but thankfully not the £500 price tag. They're just half the price, at £249.99.
Code-named 'Magnesium', the lightweight magnesium closed cans feature an Acoustic Optimiser for adjusting the sound pressure, and boast impressive specs including a frequency...

Extreme sports audio-ware manufacturers Skullcandy are releasing a new range of headphones that "stay in place when you don't" called "chops".
Another product to add to the 'world's first' category, Sony claims these MDR-NC500D headphones are the world's first digital noise-cancelling pair.
With 99% of ambient noise cut out supposedly (although that's based on 'Sony's measurement standards' apparently), they use digital technology with Artificial Intelligence, with an internal processor adapting the level of cancellation dependent on the outside noise. The 'AI Mode' button lets you choose from three cancellation modes, alternatively press down and hold...

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,...
Sony has introduced a range of new headphones boasting "audacious styling" and advanced technology. Unfortunately, they're still as heavy on the unmemorable product names.
The MDR-EX700LP in-ear headphones feature a 16mm driver unit, which Sony claims is the largest of any in-ear headphone design, plus vertical driver orientation, multi-layer diaphragm designed for greater stiffness and elimination of distortion, and seven sizes of hybrid silicone earbuds to give the perfect, custom fit.
They come with a premium leather carry case.
Whilst I can't see Krycek from X-Files, James Bond or other famous double agents donning these Skullcandy headphones, I could see Sydney Bristow from Alias wearing them on a day off.
With three colour ways (orange, green and black), any espionage hopeful can carry out their acts of secrecy with the Double Agent models, which contain an inbuilt SD card reader. You guessed right - that means you don't have to connect...
The company best known for its high-quality HDMI cables has dallied with headphones once again, after we saw the iFreePlay 'phones mid-last year that docked your iPod Shuffle when on the go.
These over-ear cans pictured are their latest venture, made in collaboration with music moguls Dr. Dre and Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine.
Dubbed 'Beats', the headphones have been in development for two years and will be available in the US for $399.95 as of June, with no word yet on worldwide availability.

Sennheiser has announced their new PC 350 gaming headset, claiming to give the most accurate sound positioning and finest sound quality available in the gaming market.
This round-the-ear, closed headset passively shuts out external noises, and features special shaping of the frequency response which improves the wearer's ability to detect where a sound is coming from. This should significantly improve reaction times.
