ISTN Troubadour Headphones

ISTN | The Style RaconteurAsk any guitarist what makes his Fender Strat or Gibson Les Paul Goldtop sound so good, and there’s a good chance the top answer will be “the wood.” The acoustic benefits of wood are well known, yet many audiophiles enjoy their music through headphone drivers encased in plastic and metal. Californians Joe Huff and Bridget Hilton believe that this simply won’t do, and have created a line of wood-flavored audio products to add that certain something to our personal music enjoyment. The Troubadours are over-ear headphones, and  are offered in beech, cherry or ebony. (In-ear & On-ear styles are available). They sound pretty good I travel alot so noise cancelling is a must for me, but other than that these are up to a fight with my Bose QC’s and can most certainly  hammer the similarly priced Beats by Dre on sound quality.   Also for every pair sold a percentage of the proceeds are being donated to the Starkey Hearing Foundation by the folks at lstn, to help efforts to restore hearing to those in need. So its a win-win…definitely reccomended by me.

AKG Noise Cancelling Headphones

Pro audio experts AKG are finally getting into the noise cancelling market with two new travel-friendly headphones. The headphones  feature built-in batteries that charge via USB and have a slimmer, more streamlined design than most noise-cancelling headphones for easier storage in your travel bag

Marshall Major Headphones

I am sick of seeing people wear those Dr Dre endorsed headphone maybe they sound good but they look shit and very much believe Dre would wear them outside of a photoshoot op. Now these on the other hand look great.

Famous amp maker Marshall shook up the audio world when they released the Marshal Major and Minor headphones. A little over a year later, they’ve now added some phone-friendly additions to their flagship Major cans in the form of an integrated mic and remote. Both features function as you’d expect, allowing users to answer calls and flip through playlists with compatible phones such as the iPhone. Otherwise, the set remains unchanged and still features a matching headband made form the same vinyl as the amplifier, excellent sound quality, and a 6.3mm headphone adapter for musicians and DJs. Best of all the price hasn’t budged and getting more for your money is never a bad thing.
