Pioneer's dropped some premium buds with a unique idea: custom attachments that can actually tweak the output of each in-ear nozzle.As well as the standard selection of pads to ensure a comfortable fit, there's an array of colour-coded attachments that change the attributes of the CLX7 and CLX9's sound.Standard silver takes care of most tracks but for more oomph there's graphite Bass Tune 1 or the even more head-thumping black Base Tune 2. When Treble notes are the priority, just switch to sky blue High Tune 1, or dark blue High Tune 2.Both sets pull off an impressive 105dB but while the CLX9 is hewn from aluminium the cheaper CLX7s make do with standard metal casings. There's even a metal tin for all those attachments. Should look great on your utility belt next to your Leatherman.EssentialsPioneer SE-CLX7, SE-CLX9Price: £TBA (¥12,500, ¥22,000 in Japan)On sale: TBA Contact: PioneerRelated stories:Five new sets of Sennheiser in-earsGadget of the Day – Jays q-JAYSSTUFF ESSENTIALS – In-ear headphones
