Phiaton's Bridge MS 500 Headphones: Serious Contenders for Best of 2013.

image

One of our editors here at iPhone Life recently asked me which pair of headphones I would vote for as best headphone of the year. Without hesitation I replied that in my opinion Phiaton’s Bridge MS 500 ($269.00) deserved that honor. These uniquely crafted headphones take precision sound sculpting to a whole new level. And when I use the word sculpting, that is exactly what these superior headphones do. Like a master sculptor, the Bridge MS 500s take the acoustics of whatever you're listening to and mold and funnel the sounds to get the maximum dynamic range out of each and every note.

Introducing 50 Cent's Street Headphones from SMS Audio

image

Wow! That's the word that first comes to mind when trying to describe just how amazing 50 Cent's new SMS Audio Street ANC headphones ($279.95) are. 

50 Cent is know for his hardcore gangsta rap and controversial lyrics, as well as some seriously heavy bass lines. Discovered and managed by none other than Eminem himself, 50 Cent has gone on to transcend his rap star status and become a successful actor and businessman as well.

I got a chance to chat with 50 Cent at this year’s CES in Vegas. He was in town promoting his new line of headphones. We didn't get around to talking much about his headphones (it was Vegas after all), but I enjoyed our one on one a great deal, and he did offer to sign an autographed copy of iPhone Life magazine for me. It was only later that I came to realize what an amazing pair of headphones 50 had attached his name to. Look out, Beats by Dre ($299.95), there's a new contender on the block!

The secret is TuneMoba free app that works with Bluetooth. So next time you throw a party, you and your friends can string together as many as seven iDevices to amp up the sound.

V-Moda Crossfade M-100: The Hardcore Gamer’s Dream Headphone

image


Apple is preparing to upgrade its mobile operating system to iOS 7, and with that, we can expect to see a host of new features on our iDevices as well as significant improvements to already-existing features and apps. One of the things I'm excited to see is how mobile gaming evolves with iOS 7. On that note, it seems appropriate to feature a serious gamer’s headphone. Hardcore gamers and audiophiles alike will appreciate the quality of sound of the V-Moda Crossfade M-100s ($310) over-the-ear headphones. 

While many companies develop great headphones, very few pour as much time, energy, and resources into research and development as has V-Moda. The Crossfade over-the-ear headphones are very much the product of extensive crowdsourcing and feedback from a variety of audio experts and connoisseurs.

WheelTunes: App for Safe Music Listening in Your Car

image

Many states are cracking down on the use of cell phones while driving. In fact, just across the state line where I live, using a cell phone while behind the wheel can get you stopped by the State Police and fined (no matter what you are doing with it). Wheeltunes ($0.99) aims to make at least the act of accessing your playlist or controlling your player safer with a fully gesture-based player control UI. However, it is important to note that it still likely can't protect you from a fine. You should make sure to know the cell phone driving laws in your home state or anywhere you may be traveling this summer, and follow the law. If you must drive and play with your music player, you certainly should do so with an app that has a simple, stark interface and allows you to change tracks with a swipe.
