Despite our sincerest wishes, the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week in Las Vegas was no more loaded with sick new music gear than it ever was, which is to say that per usual, we’ll have to wait another couple of weeks for the NAMM show to run wild in a playground of synthesizers and software. Rather, CES brought us another round of robots, drones, self-driving cars, TVs with more pixels than your eyes know what to do with, and vomit-inducing virtual reality goggles.
However, amidst all the hype, there were a lot of interesting headphones and earphones to hit the scene. Most of them are not aimed at muscians and producers, but many of them do promise audiophile sound quality, as well as other benefits to our kind, such as affordable earphones that custom-mold to your ear and earphones that record 3D audio to a smartphone. Check out the highlights in the slideshow below.
