The typical beef with earbuds is that they sound worse than similarly priced over- or on-ear headphones. That’s not to say audio engineers haven’t figured out how to squeeze spectacular sound out of a diminutive package, there’s just usually a hefty premium for having your cake and eating it too. Klipsch's X11i are the company's top of the line offering in-ear offering. We spent the last few weeks with a pair to see if they were capable of producing the high-end sound worthy of their high-end price.

We’ve all experienced it before — that overwhelming desire to stop and marvel at something.

From pioneering audio staples to buzzing newcomers, these are the noise cancelers worth turning your ears to.
The term "noise canceling headphones" almost always summons images of big puffy over-the-ear numbers. As wonderful as those can be, they're bulky to pack if you're traveling light, and during workouts, they suck -- providing a feeling akin to sweating with scones strapped to your head. Austrian headphone maker AKG's K391 NC offer up noise canceling features in a compact package. We tried out a pair.
The world may not be in black or white, but a glance at today's most popular gadgets would make you think otherwise. Wouldn't it be grand if technology could mirror your tastes and preferences (Swarovski crystal crusts excluded) -- and not cost a bloody fortune? Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones ($195) are just that. Even in their stock form, a metal frame, metal ear cups, metal y-forks and a removable 2.5mm connector give the made-in-Deutschland set a premium feel.
