Freakin' Friday! Zumreed Hybrid Headphones


Take your pick of how to use the Zumreed X2 Hybrid Headphones, whether you prefer them to be a singular noise cancelling experience or as a pair of desktop speakers. The ear cups rotate to stand erect on a flat surface and its Lithium-Ion battery lasts about four hours before needing a recharge via USB. Also available in both black and white, the phones come with both 3.5mm and 6.3 mm gold-plated stereo plugs.

Samsung Docks Bi-Useful


Samsung has a couple of new audio docks that support not only Galaxy S phones and players but Apple devices as well. The DA-E750 Speaker/Dock has "hybrid vacuum tube amplifier technology" that reportedly combines clear digital sound with a natural one produced by a vacuum in its preamp. The DA-E670 lacks the tube, but both stream wirelessly with AllShare or Airplay and charge while you listen. They make their debut at the CES 2012.

Get to Audio Heaven Via Audio Hell


While the American Burger King offered Free Fries Friday to get the word out on their new product, the Swedish electronics store Pause showed a lot more creativity. Visit before December 21, listen to the endless droning of Jingle Bells and you may just win a Geneva 5 Stereo System. At the very least you get a discount if you can manage to go through several choruses (you have to press a Santa button occasionally to prove you are still listening.)
