The set we tried out were a prototype model, and we&#39;re told that some of the design elements will change in the finished product &ndash; most notably, the switch on the base of the left-hand earpiece will change, and there&#39;s a 3D printed element that will be replaced with a more polished-looking component.</p> <p>The NCL1s delivered clear highs and a balanced soundscape during our test &ndash; inevitably, the active noise cancellation introduced a more tinny note to the audio, but it still sounded impressive &ndash; and effectively stripped out the simulated aircraft engine noise played during our test. Unfortunately, halfway through our test the Philips stand played host to America&#39;s cheesiest rock band, which &ndash; unsurprisingly - overpowered the NCL1s&#39; noise-cancelling abilities and made it difficult to get a full impression of their abilities. We&#39;ll subject them to a more in-depth test in controlled conditions as soon as we can get a set in the Stuff.tv office for review.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="You don&#039;t know jack – these cans plug into the iPhone&#039;s Lightning port " alt="You don&#039;t know jack – these cans plug into the iPhone&#039;s Lightning port " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-fidelio-ncl1-hands-on-02.jpg?1420878699" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="This 3D printed element won&#039;t feature on the production model" alt="This 3D printed element won&#039;t feature on the production model" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-fidelio-ncl1-hands-on-06.jpg?1420878699" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>So, without battery power, how much will the NCL1s&#39; active noise cancellation tax your iPhone&#39;s power supply? Not much, Philips tells us; Apple mandates that Lightning-powered devices draw no more than 50mA, which should have a minimal impact on your iPhone&#39;s battery life.</p> <p>Philips showed us a demo app that lets you switch the active noise cancellation feature on and off; the commercial release of the app will also let you switch on an &quot;open-ear&quot; mode, which lets in some ambient noise, and &quot;natural voice&quot; mode, which is calibrated for voice calls. The final version of the app will also feature a widget that will let you control the headphones&#39; ANC feature from the pull-down Notifications menu.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Any port in a storm; the NCL1s&#039; Lightning connector" alt="Any port in a storm; the NCL1s&#039; Lightning connector" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-fidelio-ncl1-hands-on-04.jpg?1420878699" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Philips&#039; demo app – the final version will include a pull-down widget" alt="Philips&#039; demo app – the final version will include a pull-down widget" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-fidelio-ncl1-hands-on-03.jpg?1420878699" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Perhaps the most interesting feature of the NCL1s is the ability to upgrade them with new sound profiles which are stored on the headphones themselves, using the Lightning cable&#39;s two-way data transfer. One notable omission from the prototype is a remote and mic; we&#39;d expect this to feature on the production model, though.</p> <p>The Philips NCL1 headphones will be available from April in the US, though MY pricing and availability has yet to be confirmed. We&#39;ll keep you posted with the details and a full review as soon as we can get our hands on a final version of the product.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/ces-2015/ces-2015-what-expect-best-gadgets-and-tech/feature" target="_blank">All the latest news from CES 2015</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The Philips NCL1 headphones" alt="The Philips NCL1 headphones" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/philips-fidelio-ncl1-hands-on-05.jpg?1420878699" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/philips/ces-2015/ces-2015-we-go-ears-philips-noise-cancelling-lightning-compatible-headphones/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/philips/ces-2015/ces-2015-we-go-ears-philips-noise-cancelling-lightning-compatible-headphones/news#comments CES 2015 Headphones Philips Fri, 09 Jan 2015 20:44:27 +0000 Elissa Loi 1457217 at http://www.stuff.tv CES 2015: Philips new Lightning-compatible noise-cancelling headphones don’t need no stinkin’ battery http://www.stuff.tv/my/philips/ces-2015/ces-2015-philips-new-lightning-compatible-noise-cancelling-headphones-don-t-need-no <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> They’ll plug straight into your iPhone or iPad and actively shut out outside noise </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Philips new noise-cancelling headphones don’t need no stinkin&#039; battery" alt="Philips new noise-cancelling headphones don’t need no stinkin&#039; battery" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/philips-nc1l-main.jpg?1420768260" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Philips&rsquo; new Fidelio NC1L headphones are something of a mould-breaker: they&rsquo;re the first active noise-cancelling headphones on this planet that don&rsquo;t require battery power.

But Razer is already back at it with the Nabu X, a simpler and cheaper fitness tracker that has the same intriguing social elements built in.</p> <p class="p1">Unlike the pricier model, the Nabu X lacks an OLED display - instead, it uses vibrations and three small lights to alert you to notifications from a paired iPhone or Android smartphone. It&rsquo;ll also track your steps taken, distance walked, and hours slept, and the one-size-fits-all band (available in white or black) can be easily adjusted to fit your wrist.</p> <p class="p1">But while the Nabu X loses the screen, it still has the ability to communicate with other Nabu devices (of all kinds) - letting you high-five to share social media info, or compare activity stats. And it does so at half the price, as the Nabu X sells for &euro;49.99 (RM211). It&rsquo;ll launch on Razer&rsquo;s website on 13 January (and members of the Insider forum, at least U.S. ones, can get it for just $19.99 (RM71) at first) before becoming widely available later this spring.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="http://www.razerzone.com/nabu-x">Razer</a>]</p> <p class="p1"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/razer/ces-2014/part-smartwatch-part-fitness-band-razer-enters-wearables-race-nabu/news">Part smartwatch, part fitness band: Razer enters the wearables race with the Nabu</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Marvel’s Ant-Man trailer </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Paul Rudd starring in a Marvel superhero movie sounds like a rollicking good time, but there&rsquo;s something missing from this first look at the upcoming <em>Ant-Man</em>.

That&rsquo;s not why we&rsquo;re covering it in this space. We mention it because SyFy has teamed up with Philips to create custom paired home lighting for the show via the Hue connected bulbs.</p> <p class="p2">The special &ldquo;light track&rdquo; is available via the <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/syfy-sync/id450488282?mt=8">SyFy Sync app</a> for iOS, which listens to the show as it plays and triggers changes in colour from the Hue bulbs based on audio cues. Such tracks will be available for all 13 episodes of the season, and since the audio cues are likely baked into the content, it stands to reason that you can probably use the Hue functionality even if you&rsquo;re not watching live on SyFy.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150105006323/en/Syfy-Philips-Pioneer-World-TV-Entertainment-12#.VKzLaIrF8ww">Business Wire</a>]</p> <p class="p2"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ces-2015/ces-2015-misfit-bolt-lightbulb-will-shine-every-colour-under-sun/news">CES 2015: Misfit Bolt lightbulb will shine every colour under the sun</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bi4AtvfXlUA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/hue/ces-2015/fully-charged-razer-s-entry-level-nabu-x-fitness-tracker-marvel-s-first-ant-man-trailer#comments CES 2015 Film and TV Headphones Health and fitness Hue Philips Razer Wed, 07 Jan 2015 07:30:00 +0000 Hafizah Osman 1456987 at http://www.stuff.tv CES 2015: Parrot's Zik Sport headphones can tell how good a runner you are http://www.stuff.tv/my/parrot/ces-2015-parrots-zik-sport-headphones-can-tell-how-good-runner-you-are/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Probably the smartest headphones in the world </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="More than just a pair of &#039;90s headphones" alt="Parrot Zik Sport" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/parrot-zik-sport-2.jpg?1420433229" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>We&#39;ve already seen headphones that can measure your heart rate, but at CES this year, Parrot&#39;s gone several steps further.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Zik Sport headphones not only know how fast your heart&#39;s beating, but how well you&#39;re running, measuring the steps you&#39;re taking, how long your feet are in touch with the ground and your cadence (steps per minute) via a built-in accelerometer.&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/will-findlater" title="View user profile.">Will Findlater</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>There&#39;s something very &#39;90s cassette Walkman about the in-ears-plus-headband look of the lightweight plastic cans, but the tech is entirely 21st century: Bluetooth LE for wireless music streaming, built-in active noise cancelling and an array of microphones that allow the outside world in should you want to hear it.</p> <p>We had a brief play at the CES Unveiled event in Las Vegas but didn&#39;t get the chance to listen to the Zik Sports.

First question is why someone hasn&#39;t thought of this first? No matter, Axent Wear, a tiny startup by two Berkley students are now on Indiegogo with a project that&#39;s basically made some people just go &quot;Shut up and take my money!&quot;</p> <p>Proof? It&#39;s only been the third day of the campaign and it&#39;s already fully-funded, nearly doubling its funding goal of US$250,000 (RM812,462).</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cat lover, otaku or perhaps Deadmau5 fan magnet </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Now, lest you think these headphones are just cat ears stuck on top of headphones, you get a lot more for your money. The headphones themselves can either be wired or wireless, with a removable cord as well as a USB charging port.</p> <p>As to the sound driver, the Axent Wear headphones use a 40mm driver with a 20Hz to 20KhZ range, which is a pretty decent standard with the 40mm giving you access to the lower-end of tunes.</p> <p>The cat ears are also not just for show. They&#39;re actually functional speakers, albeit cute ones. Basically you have the kind of headphones that will glow even in the dark with funky coloured lights - red, blue, green or purple, depending on which colour accent you choose. The purple headphones seem to be the most popular at the moment of all the Indiegogo campaign picks.</p> <p>How much for a pair? Considering that the price includes shipping and tax all over the world, US$150 (RM488) does not seem quite a bad deal. But just a caveat, this being a crowdfunding effort, the element of risk is there. So crowdfund only if you dare.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: </strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/what-your-headphones-say-about-you/feature">What do your headphones say about you?</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/axent-wear-cat-ear-headphones" target="_blank">Indiegogo</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/UJugaD6rs2g" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/these-cat-ear-headphones-are-otakus-dream/news#comments Crowdfunding Geek accessories Headphones Fri, 10 Oct 2014 05:49:53 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1449854 at http://www.stuff.tv Parrot Zik 2.0 is now slimmer and prettier http://www.stuff.tv/my/parrot/parrot-zik-20-now-slimmer-and-prettier/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> But looks will only get you so far in this game, you mark our words </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Parrot Zik 2.0" alt="Parrot Zik 2.0" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/main_4.jpg?1412929326" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/fraser-macdonald" title="View user profile.">Fraser Macdonald</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>I&rsquo;ve already got some decent headphones.

And a little chunky, too. But that&rsquo;s been refined for the 2.0s. Philippe Starck is still involved in the overall design, but they&rsquo;ve slimmed down from 325g to a more lug-load compliant 270g. The soft-touch plastic has been replaced by a leathery something, and the cups have been made more comfortable. But it&rsquo;s not all colour and cosiness, the new versions are yet more capable of conjuring up a capital cacophony.</p> <p><strong>Well, that&rsquo;s good to hear.</strong><br />The headphones have no fewer than eight microphones for measuring ambient noise levels, as well as a bone conduction microphone for better voice clarity during handsfree calls. There&rsquo;s a better DAC onboard, and an improved Android/iOS app that lets you muck about with the equaliser and noise cancellation levels. That is, unless you&rsquo;ve downloaded your favourite band&rsquo;s custom EQ &ndash; a original Zik feature that continues with the new version.

B&amp;O&rsquo;s involvement adds some audiophile cachet &ndash;&nbsp;though dedicated vinyl-botherers will doubtless grumble about &quot;paying for design&quot;.

There&rsquo;s aircraft-grade aluminium and lamb&#39;s leather in the band, while the cups are made from a comfortable memory foam covered in soft, hand-stitched lamb&rsquo;s leather. They&rsquo;re a lot more understated and stylish than some of Vertu&#39;s previous handsets, in other words. And they&rsquo;re made in England, so you&rsquo;d be supporting local business by buying them over some cheaper cans made in, say, Shenzhen.</p> <p><strong>They do look a bit bulky, though</strong><br />They&rsquo;re actually surprisingly light: just 230g. And they come in a lovely quilted magnetic carrying pouch, so you can put them in your bag without having to worry about a stray set of keys scratching them up.</p> <p><strong>Are they phone compatible?</strong><br />Of course, Vertu being first and foremost a phone manufacturer. Two cables are supplied &ndash; you can choose between audio only or audio with volume controls and in-line microphone.</p> <p><strong>And is there a button on the cable that calls a concierge for me?</strong><br />Now you&rsquo;re just being daft.

They even smell pricey, too; like a leather armchair or the interior of a sports car. Pop them on your head and they have a satisfyingly weighty feel; the memory foam cushions are comfy and block outside noise effectively, though the band is quite tricky to adjust when they&#39;re on your head.</p> <p>But how do they sound? Perfectly good, actually. Noise isolation is effective, the bass is punchy&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;but not overwhelming&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;and there&#39;s plenty of crisp detail in the mid-range. There is a catch, though; they don&#39;t sound RM1000 better than premium on-ears from other manufacturers like B&amp;O. Sure, you&#39;re probably not looking at these for audio quality alone; and the build quality of the cans is certainly impressive. Though the flimsy-feeling plastic 3-button remote lets the side down, rather; if you&#39;re not planning to use it for calls, probably best to pop off the magnetic ear cushion and swap it out for a standard cable.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-box-out-byline"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/stephen-graves" title="View user profile.">Stephen Graves</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/vertu/vertu-breaks-new-ground-hp-1v-headphones/news#comments Headphones Hot Stuff Vertu Mon, 22 Sep 2014 09:34:16 +0000 Elissa Loi 1448329 at http://www.stuff.tv Mo-Fi's built-in amp brings new sound definition to your headphones http://www.stuff.tv/my/mo-fis-built-amp-brings-new-sound-definition-your-headphones/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sure, portable tiny amps are easily available but the Mo-Fi lets you plug right into the music </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Mo-Fi&#039;s built-in amp brings new sound definition to your headphones" alt="Mo-Fi&#039;s built-in amp brings new sound definition to your headphones" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/mo-fi.jpg?1410851976" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Those look a lot like headphones.

Huh?</strong><br />Mo-Fi is the brainchild of Blue Microphones, more known for their range of USB microphones that offer great sound recording in a tiny package. Great for the at-home podcaster or aspiring home studio musician. The company&#39;s taken its audio expertise and decided to design the kind of headphones they would want with a cute tagline to boot: &quot;Join the rebellion against headphone convention.&quot;</p> <p><strong>What&#39;s great about them?</strong><br />If you&#39;re an audiophile, you&#39;ve probably seen the little amps you can connect to your headphones. With dedicated over-ear headphones being bulky enough to begin with, adding more wires to the mix might annoy some but for them, the Mo-Fi might just fix things.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>&nbsp;</h2> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Like I said before, they look a bit big.</strong><br />To be sure the headphones aren&#39;t light, weighing nearly half a kg at 466g.</p> <p><strong>How sensitive are these cans?</strong><br />As to frequency range, the Mo-Fi has a respectable 15Hz-20kHz. But the heart of it is its built-in amplifier and what Blue calls its &#39;premium drivers&#39;. What the Mo-Fi aims for you to experience is like having a Hi-Fi strapped right to your head. Minus all those messy cables, of course.</p> <p><strong>How much tweaking to the sound can I do? </strong><br />Its inbuilt amp has three modes to choose from with what Mo-Fi promises to have no DSP tricks, it&#39;s all purely analog.</p> <p><strong>Are they comfortable?</strong><br />Design-wise, Blue took inspiration from a Formula One race car&#39;s suspension by making the Mo-Fi multi-jointed with ear-shaped ear cups. There is even an adjustable tension knob to fine-tune your comfort while wearing the Mo-Fi. Blue promises that the headphone&#39;s design will deliver a real seal for noise isolation, bass response and less sound bleeding.</p> <p><strong>Anything I need to know in case, I, hypothetically spend money on these?</strong><br />Unfortunately all that tech needs extra juice so the headphones also come with a battery that lasts around 12 hours, while taking three-to-four hours to charge. Even when the battery is low, though, the Mo-Fi can still run but on passive mode.</p> <p><strong>How much then?</strong><br />US$350 (RM895).
