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.

Wireless and clear in sound output, these are known to isolate all the sound around so that you can enjoy a perfectly clear sound output, wirelessly. Support wireless protocols like A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP. With a support for operating frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz, the headphones also promise high fidelity sound and a playtime of 17 hours before the next charge. This one’s called the DR-BT50. And there is a lighter weight DR-BT21G. It weighs a mere 63 grams and comes in black and white colors.

The price is still unknown but what we see here is a probable favorite of the season

sonymdr_nc60.jpg If you need new headphones, noise canceling technology is sure to wow your friends if they ever take a look. While the prices for noise canceling are constantly falling, take a look at these nice new Sony headphones. The MDR-NC60 has been released in Japan for about $200. These noise cancelers make sure that those pesky people surrounding you will not be a problem anymore.

So what else does $200 get you? One thing is better quality padding around your ears, which provides for a better and more comfortable seal to help keep your music in and other sounds out. Another cool little addon is the airplane adapter so that you can plug your MDR-NC60 into those odd jacks. AAA batteries fuel the headphones for about 30 hours, a good deal longer than the longest plane ride. And if the people around you are all asleep (one can only dream), just turn off the noise canceling to save power.
