Without having to sell your first-born child, you can pick up these highly-regarded Sony headphones for your iPod or other MP3 player at a relative steal. These lightweight, aluminum earphones with neodymium magnets deliver powerful bass and clear treble while fitting snuggly in your ears. They fit well enough to go running with them. The frequency response on these little guys is 5 to 23,000 Hz. That’s pretty remarkable for lightweight earphones. Oh yes, if you want these to match your iPod, you can also get them in white.
And if you’ve got about $300 burning a hole in your pocket, then you need to get the Shure E4c Sound Isolating Earphones, which are form-fitting earphones that locks out outside sounds and provides professional sound quality in a small package. Shure is renowned for their headsets and microphones and takes the tack that it’s better to block out ambient noise than trying to cancel it out.
