Soul by Ludacris

Signeo's Soul by Ludacris series headphones are slated for release this May, the company said Wednesday. There are five headphones in the series, three over-ear and two in-ear headphones with prices ranging from $300 for the high-end SL300 to $69 for the entry-level SL49.

The SL49 in-ear headphones are your average sub-$100 cans. Priced at $69, the SL49 offers high-definition quality audio and has a tangle-resistant cable. Also included are three extra ear tips: small, medium, and large for an ideal fit. For $99 the SL99 offer nearly identical features as the SL49s with the exception of the construction of the ear buds, which are bigger.

For those who prefer over-ear headphones, Signeo and Ludacris offer three different models. The SL100, which retail for $149, are the smallest of the over-ear headphones and come in two different colors, with red/black and blue/black tones. All are compatible with iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, and iPods, and they include standard and iPhone detachable cords with an in-line remote. The detachable cords are compatible with most devices with 1/8 or 1/4 headphone jack. For an additional $50, the SL150 offers the same features as the SL100 but are bulkier with bigger ear cups and come in two-toned black/white and white/black.

The Top 10 performers of this performance round will for ever be part of the Idol pantheon. This summer, they will tour the country and continue to peddle music. After that, only a few of them - if even that many - will go on to lasting recording industry success. Will your favorite season 9 contestant soon be a Grammy-winning artist? Maybe…but first, they’ve got to get through this week’s elimination.

was the mentor for the week, the theme of which is R&B/Soul in honor of the star. “To be a great performer, you really have to understand what it takes,” he told the contestants upon their group meeting. “I want you to be great.”

“This is their time to shine, and this is the stage to do it on,” Usher seemed to accept his responsibility with sincerity and seriousness.
