Ditching Those Cheap Earphones

Boot Camp feature for Monday, March 1, 2010

Ditching those cheap earphones. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. With very few exceptions, the earphones that come with iPods or other digital media players, aren't worth a whole lot....and won't do justice to the music you're listening to. The good news is, you don't have to spend a hundred dollars or more to hear a big improvement. Yamaha, which has been working with musicians and music producers for years, is now selling its EPH-30 inner ear headphones...for under forty dollars. Marketing manager Ben Baker...

"It's only recently we felt that you can design, manufacture headphones in that tiny form factor of the in-ear type, that gives you a sufficient quality that we could put the Yamaha name on it."

The EPH-30 headphones aren't the best headphones you can buy....but for the money....they're hard to beat. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
