The number of headsets and earphones being showcased at CES 2010 was practically overwhelming. It seems like manufacturers have given up trying to produce MP3 players to compete with the iPod, so why not just focus on ways to listen to those iPods.
Etymotic has been making high-end earphones for years, and they just introduced an affordable line using moving coil drivers. The mc3 features a 3-button inline remote control that works with the iPhone. Like other Etymotic headphones, the mc3 use passive noise-isolation, and they're available in a variety of colors: red, green, blue and black. The beauty of these is how well they fit - they come with a variety of tips to ensure a snug and comfy fit. The mc3 will retail for around $100 — a small price to pay to get that classic Etymotic sound.
