Samsung debuts "your sound" line of headsets, hopes you'll listen
Samsung promises superior audio and wide frequency performance across the entire line, although presumably the audio becomes “superior-er” as you move up the line (and dig deeper into your wallet). The moderately priced ($49.99) Active Sound EHS-63 is designed for users who also need to monitor their surroundings, like joggers, or parents with young children. To accomplish this, the headset combines open and closed speakers; Samsung claims that the open speaker increases bass response, in addition to letting you hear external noises.
Moving into the rarefied air of the high-end EHS-70 and EHS-71, you get anti-tangling cords and a protective case, as well as upgraded drivers. In the case of the EHS-71, you also get aircraft-grade aluminum bodies, and sound quality that Samsung claims would satisfy even the most discriminating musician or audiophile.
The EHS-60 and -63 can be purchased starting today at Samsung.com, while the -70 and -71 will be available in February. Check out the gallery below for some press shots of the new headphones.
