The Washington Times writes:
It’s a given that the holidays mean different things to different people: family gatherings, memories of days gone by, hopes for the future and perhaps all of these. One element held in common — at least for many of us — is the desire to enjoy music and video entertainment at home and while traveling.
This year offers many options for audio and video users, some of which this reviewer found especially impressive. It’s not too late to add some of these to your holiday shopping list.
Overall audio winner: Street by 50 headphones, $299.95 from SMS Audio (www.smsaudio.com). Celebrity-backed headphones appear to be all the rage (e.g., Beats by Dr. Dre and Soul by Ludacris), and by the time news that rap mogul 50 Cent was jumping in, I felt a tad jaded. Then a pair of his Street by 50 wired headphones arrived, and my skepticism vanished faster than the morning mist after sunrise. These headphones are worth every penny; the listening experience is just a hair shy of transcendent.
50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III, not only endorses the SMS-made headphones, he owns the company. His desire was to create a product that would reproduce the sound he hears in the recording studio. Not being a music-industry executive, I can’t fully judge, but having heard quite a bit of music, live and recorded, I can say that the sound these headphones produce is exceptionally authentic. Whether it’s maestro Herbert Blomstedt’s rendering of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, Mr. Jackson’s (exceptionally explicit) “Queens (feat. Paris)” via a YouTube video, or tamer fare such as Taylor Swift or Jason Aldean, the fidelity to what was recorded is astonishing.
What’s more, the headphones are very comfortable to wear, a good thing to know when traveling. Users of iPhones and similar devices will appreciate the built-in play/pause control and microphone in the detachable cord. This is an extremely good product any audiophile will enjoy receiving.
