Klipsch Mode noise-canceling headphones
We’ve been worried about Klipsch’s future since Audiovox joined the picture, but it looks like there isn’t reason to fret just yet. Remember the company’s first on-ear headphones, the Image One? Well, Klippy’s back for round two evidently; its Mode active noise-canceling headphones have quietly popped up on its website with a whopping $350 price tag and a fall 2011 release. The collapsible earcups are padded in plushy leather and house a 40mm mid / low woofer with a 15mm tweeter for silky highs, crunchy mids, thumping lows. Also included are two detachable 3.5mm cables, one of which has an Apple-certified three-button inline remote / mic. Best of all, ANC can be enabled for up to 45 hours on a single battery to zone out any bustle around you. We’ll have an ears-on with these very soon, but you’ll find details now via the source link below.

Listener fatigue: it’s a condition that affects just about everyone who owns a pair of earbuds and one that myriad manufacturers have tried to mitigate with various configurations. According to researchers at Asius Technologies, though, the discomfort you experience after extended periods of earphone listening isn’t caused by faulty design or excessively high volumes, but by “acoustic reflex.” Every time you blast music through earbuds, your ear muscles strain to reduce sound waves by about 50 decibels, encouraging many audiophiles to crank up the volume to even higher, eardrum-rattling levels. To counteract this, Asius has developed something known as the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL) — an inflatable polymer balloon that attaches to the ends of earbuds. According to Asius’ Samuel Gido, the inflated ADEL effectively acts as a “second eardrum,” absorbing sound and redirecting it away from the ear’s most sensitive regions. No word yet on when ADEL may be available for commercial use, but head past the break for a video explanation of the technology, along with the full presser.

They’re half gimmick, half hilarious, and 100 percent awesome. $199.99 nets you a customized set of cans, with seven plate colors to choose from and the option to add up to 11 characters of text. You know — plenty of room for “BEATZ BY ME.” Get at ‘em in the source link below, but be prepared to wait two to three weeks for delivery. What, you expecting VIP treatment or something?

We can’t tell, is this (and by “this” we mean the entertainment machine that is Disney / Daft Punk / Tron / Jeff Bridges, melding with the monster that is Monster, and creating a pair of $350 ultra-glossy headphones) the ultimate payoff of our childhood hopes and dreams, or their ultimate ruination and desecration? Both?
