Not since third grade and that bumper bowling party has it been cool to have things bouncing off the walls on the way to their intended destination. It’s cool for racquetball or squash because, well, that’s kind of the point. Ok, and hockey too. The point is, you don’t want it happening for most things. Did you know that headphones with conventional drivers reflect sounds down your ear canal before you can hear them? Neither did we until these Yamaha EPH-100s came around. The incredibly compact driver can be positioned closer to your eardrum which gives you pure, low-distortion sound without nasty reflections. It doesn’t hurt that they look good either.
