    Luzli ROLLER MK01 Headphones by TECA Roll Up Like Bracelets

    The nicer and more substantial a pair of headphones is, the harder it can be to store or carry around with you – my own pair of Sennheisers often give me grief in rolling up its extra-long cord, even though they’re awesome in every other way. Design duo TECA have come up with a new […]

    ‘Songs To Test Headphones With': A New Spotify Playlist

    It might sound like a long-lost Brian Eno album, but actually Songs To Test Headphones With is of a more recent vintage, a new playlist from the people at Spotify nominally engineered for the purpose of testing your headphones.

    Fender FXA7 Pro In-Ear Monitors

    Fender is a legendary guitar brand–perhaps THE legendary guitar brand–but imagine if you could stick a Fender guitar … in your ear.
