Earbuds Blooming in 2009 -- We Like These 7
These adjusting earbuds from Koss purport to solve one of the common complaints about in-ear headphones -- the fit. Most are either too big or too small, resulting in poor audio quality at best and pain at worst. Koss's model has a soft memory foam cushion that adjusts with the twist of a 'Neural Knob' dial, expanding in the ear to create a snug fit and limiting outside noise. The cords are made of nylon, which helps cut down on tangles, the other main complaint we hear about earbuds. Koss will bring these headphones – model number CC_01 – to market this spring for about $150.
