VEKTR on-ear headphones by Monster and Diesel debut at CES 2102

Monster Diesel VEKTR

This morning at CES 2012 Monster Cable announced the VEKTR on-ear headphones. Partnering with Diesel, the fashion lifestyle brand, they've created a stylish headphone that features strong lines in a diamond-cut design. Of course, looks are great, but with headphones that sell for $249.95, you're also gonna want to make sure they sound good. Monster says that VEKTR offers a premium-quality listening solution, and this is the company that brought us the Beats by Dr. Dre audio line as well, so we trust them. Aside from the VEKTR on-ears, Monster will also be releasing an in-ear model as well, which will sell for $149, which will feature a jet black earpiece with yellow accent, and the Diesel logo. Look for both models to arrive later this quarter.

NAIAS 2008: Saturn Flextreme

Saturn Flextreme

Our award for the most creative use of paraphernalia goes to the Saturn Flextreme Plug-in Concept. The vehicle has a 1.3 turbo diesel engine with electric components if you prefer to run it that way. It takes 3 hours to charge for a run of about 34 miles, according to our helpful rep. But the reason we especially loved this car was for the extras in back. See them after the jump.
