The delicious irony of producing a roundup of audio equipment when I'd lost my voice! Well, less 'delicious' and more 'painful'...
There's nothing like strapping some terrifyingly expensive little speakers to your head and wandering around with high-fidelity music streaming into your skull. And these devices are exceptional facilitators of that ideal, particularly the 'expensive' part.
First up is an endorsement from "bulletproof" rapper 50 Cent, who has apparently been shot nine times. (Surely if he was bulletproof he could never be shot at all, by definition?) His Street headphones look slick and and sound ace, but cost more than you are possibly willing to believe. Then engineer Antonio Meze adds a touch of clas with some elegant fold-up headphones. (To the best of my knowledge Mr. Meze has never been shot.)
And finally, for massive contrast and no common sense, I went to Tesco and got hold of some headphones that cost approximately eighty times less than 50's offering. Surely they can't be as bad as you'd think? (Spoiler: They are.)
