Sennheiser introduce Series II Style in-ear headphones


Sennheiser have released three new in-ear headphones, the CX 550 STYLE II, OMX 95 VC Style II and MX 95 VC Style II.

Aimed squarely at well-groomed, jogging, Audi drivers the Style II series all feature premium quality crafted metal designs and are “optimized for iPod,” (Just how? That’s what I want to know).

They all wield “extra-powerful neodymium-iron magnets” which are sure to sound loads better than the buds bundled with your mp3 player do.

They also come with a snazzy case to put them in for that 1% of time they aren’t wrapped around your iPod – we all know we’re not meant to but we do it anyway, because its easier right, so deal with it.

The CX 550s feature ambient noise dampening and are designed to stop sound leakage annoying other passengers but retailing at £80 you might want to try the cheaper alternative the OMXs at £60 or the MXs for £40.

Swedish audio-buffs JAYS announce v-JAYS on-ear headphones


Swedish audiophiles JAYS have been knocking out affordable high-performance headphones for a while now. Their amazing j-JAYS In-Ear Noise Cancelling headphones were a constant companion of mine for well over a year, until that fateful day. No, don’t. I don’t want to talk about it. I’ve moved on.

So I was excited to see that JAYS are to release an open, on-ear headphone next month. JAYS promise that the new v-JAYS, will “deliver finer bass without overwhelming the finer audio nuances that some other headphones often miss”. Which is nice.

JAYS new foldable 59g badboys will be available from the start of June for £59.99 – look out for a full review in the coming days.
