CES 2015: Philips Fidelio NC1L Takes Home iPhone Life's Best of CES Award

image

The Philips Fidelio NC1L on-ear headphones with Active Noise Cancellation ($299.00) made waves at this year's CES, touting a direct digital connection to your iDevice via Apple's Lightning port. Even though Apple (quietly) announced support for this headphone feature earlier last year, few companies have taken advantage of this connective potential, not even Apple's own headphone company, Beats by Dre. The ability of the NC1L to establish a direct, 24-bit, Digital to Analog Conversion (DAC) is impressive enough. Couple that with the fact that the NC1L draw power for their Active Noise Cancellation from your iPhone or iPad and it's no wonder that these amazing sounding cans are the recipients of iPhone Life Magazine's Best of CES award.

Studies Suggest Use of iDevices at Night Harmful to Health

image

Did you just score a new iPhone or iPad over the holidays? Well, not to rain on your parade, but evidence continues to mount that these devices aren't quite as safe for us as you might think. Don't get me wrong, I love my iPhone and my iPad, but they are a double-edged sword. Previously I've written about the potentially dangerous side-effects of harmful EMFs that these pocket-sized microwaves emit. I've also written about steps that those concerned about the effects of constant low-level radiation exposure can take to mitigate these effects. Now new scientific studies are again calling into question the safety of these devices, which for many of us, are practically an extension of our body.

Well, it would be, except for the fact that there are so many great headphone options out there. Coming up with a condensed list of 20 headphones to highlight out of the hundreds of great choices on the market was no easy task, but after a year spent studying the intricacies and nuances of a great many headphones, this list represents 2014's cream of the crop.
