I admit it, I have an addiction [stands up]. I can't help it, i've tried to beat it, but it's no good. I'm addicted to gadgets
Gadget addiction, like other addictions, takes over your life, and you need a bigger and better gadget hit every time to fulfil your craving. I'm sure many of you reading this share my pain
The flip side of this is that every now and again a new gadget comes along that totally blows you away, often unexpectedly. I recently had one such experience!
While at Mobius 2006 in Boston, a number of companies contributed gifts to attendees. One such company was 'Ultimate Ears' [website]. The company background is a fascinating read in itself, but what you need to know is that Ultimate Ears make, without a doubt, THE ultimate earphones.
I unpacked my super.fi 5 Pro's with some trepidation... after all, it's a $250 set of earphones... can they really be that good? Oh yes they can! I can't put it into words, but put simply produce they most amazing sound i've ever heard!
Here's why I've fallen in love with them...
- The sound, oh my, you wouldn't believe it possible!
- The fit, they are so comfortable
- Fantastic bass, excellent highs
- Excellent isolation from external sounds (can't wait to use them on a plane!)
- Excellent build, case included
- You can walk down the road listening to your iPod / Mobile / other media device (delete as appropriate) without looking a complete dork in a huge pair of cans, and still get great sound
On my return from Boston, I pinged a mail to Ultimate Ears to express my gratitude, and guess what? They replied suggesting I give away a set of the very same earphones [product page] to a lucky MoDaCo member. I'm not one to argue... so here's YOUR chance to win the best pair of earphones you'll probably ever own That's a corking $250 worth!
