This is totally serious business — this new limited edition model from Audio-Technica. The ATH-A900ti is a special version of the company’s A900 audiophile headphones in a special titanium finish.

The headphones’ Neodymium drivers offer 5Hz to 42kHz frequency response range, 103dB sensitivity, and up to 2-watts of input power, right thing to blow your mind with your favourite album. The phones feature large, comfortable earcups that provide great noise isolation.

They available for pre-order in North America for $499 in a very limited number. As for me, they’d look totally good with Bang & Olufsen Beosound 6.

I’m a big fan of witty gadgets, like these R2 D2 speakers but The Nexspeaker FS-701SW sound system is a pure bliss. The left and right channel speakers (7.5-watts each) are embedded into the sails, and the boat’s hull serves as the woofer (15-watts).

The Nexspeaker is currently only available in Korea; it’s available from eShopworld for 52,000 KRW (appx. $57 USD).

And now for something completely different. There is a whole galaxy of iPod docks and speakers existing, like even this luxury one, but Griffin’s Evolve Wireless iPod speakers are truly wireless. With lithium-ion batteries in speakers, Griffin says they can be placed anywhere within 150 feet once charged via the dock station. Whole ten hours of playing time sound really promising. The base station’s line-in cradle accepts a stereo input from practically any source but base station, however still needs a power cord.

So it’s not only the iPod that you can listen to for only $300. Wirelessly.

Sony has announced some changes in PS3 prices! The 80GB model now costs $499, instead of $599. The lower-end model with a 60GB drive was for $499. So the new 40GB one will debut on November 2 for $399. The new 40GB one won’t be able to play games made for the PlayStation 2. The 40GB model has been much anticipated after Sony announced it for Japan and Europe. So the PS3 is cheaper but not the cheapest.

The Xbox 360 costs $350 and Nintendo’s Wii is $250. Sony has sold 5 million PlayStation 3s since they went on sale in November last year.

Remember that posh diamond flash drive by St. Dupont? Now it’s not only one in this market.

Bissol’s 4 GB flash drive weights around 0.1 ounce, and makes it’s presence felt because it is available in either original brass or nickel-plated finishes. This ReadyBoost-compatible drive is machined in the same way as traditional Swiss watches are.

Bissol 4 GB flash drive costs $260 and it’s available online.

Belkin showed its new n52te SpeedPad. Designed to be equally adept at FPS, MMORPG, and RTS games, the SpeedPad has 15 fully programmable keys that are “built for speed,” along with a programmable 8-way thumb pad and a removable joystick. It also has some nice blue backlighting on the keypad and scroll wheel, as well as some software from Razer.

It launches in November, for $70, although 50 gamers will get a chance get one for free as part of Belkin’s “Proud to PWN” contest, which requires submitting a video that “showcases dominance in multiplayer, online PC games.”

I can send some awesome video of playing Atomic Bomberman or dominating in Sailor Moon another Story jrpg.
