Headphones: a deluge of news! - V

Intra wireless
Model-ear Triva Tap proposed by Koss since last spring, is a priori the first of its kind to be free of wire and connect via WiFi to different kinds of music sources. While some might consider this a bit of "cheating" because they largely beyond the ear canal (and the ear) compared to other headphones in this category. But pending a future and hypothetical miniaturization, they remain relatively discrete, light and, of course, without headband. The contract is completed. Their interest is also to be connected to all types of readers or audio-video equipment, even if they do not have Wifi, through a small box "bridge" to connect the audio output a Smartphone, a MP3 player, radio, TV, etc.. Priced 400 euros!

Starck Parrot offers

Parrot continues its diversification in all directions and this time is associated with Philippe Starck to design the design of ZIK, a wireless headset (Bluetooth) to look very distinctive. It also stands side functions with touch control player functions (volume, play and pause automatic change tracks ...) via a capacitive panel located on the outside of the headphones, an active system of noise reduction, a motion detector to pause the music when the headphones are removed, etc.. Sold on various online shops at a price of approximately 350 euros.

A modular helmet

The main idea behind the concept Tracks Remix, Sol Republic announced at IFA 2012, is to allow everyone to customize the look and recreational level of sound quality of his helmet. The manufacturer provides for the possibility to buy it separately headband and remote control cable, choose from eight different colors, and the headphones to choose between V8 and V10 models depending on the type of sound you want. Price 80 euros.
