Audiophile debates over accuracy of sound aside, if you ask the average guy what he wants to hear from headphones, the word “bass” is most likely to be part of that answer. To that end, Headbanger Audio is now offering Ear Subs ($29.99), several pairs of inexpensive silicone rubber-tipped, in-canal earphones that promise “studio quality sound with rich bass levels that are well beyond the sound performance of other name brand earphones.” The company’s goal is to approximate the bass response of a subwoofer - the large third speaker that accompanies 2.1-channel audio systems and sits on the floor, creating rumbles and deeper tones. While the Ear Subs fall short of the “studio quality” promise by a substantial margin, they do offer dramatic low-end enhancement that will be appreciated by bass lovers with less than hi-fi aspirations.

Including a small amplifier is a very good idea. Other than that, if the bass is greater than in the EX series by sony, it would be crazy.

Guess what, I am up for a pair. Where do I sign up? Hehe, seriously now folks, why do I want these! Ahhh, Anybody got a good source for them. It think I might have to wait for them to permiate the US market a significant amount more than they have right now before I buy.

Well, they did something to these guys.


But what if I "want to hear my music media and movies exactly the way their creators intended?"
