While many of us have flatscreens that have been mounted on walls, our speakers still take up space on the floor. The Athena WS-60 Speakers have the ability to be set with included brackets for either horizontal or vertical alignment. They can also be placed on their bases on the floor or table. With multi-transducers, they also feature Teteron tweeters, multiple woofers, 4 passive radiators for bass, and a frequency response of 60-20kHz +/- 3dB. Contact Athena for price.

You can think of this either as a throwback to the old RCA mascot or as a work of art. Two porcelain dogs contain a co-axial speaker system. Designed by Buro Vormkrijgers, the Woofers (pun intended,) are each 20 x 11.5 x 17-inches and made of polyester. Available in black or white, they will deliver 60 to 180 watt RMS with 4 ohm impedance and can be yours for $900.00 for the pair, if you really want a pair of decapitated canines hanging around the house.

Shure has finally released their E500PTH sound-isolating earphones. These earphones actually consist of 3 speakers in each ear. Both ergonomically designed and lightweight, the triple Hi-Definition Drivers, one tweeter and two woofers, claim richer highs and lows with sound isolating sleeves that block over 90% of ambient noise.
The included Push-To-Hear control activates a VoicePort microphone that lets you carry on your conversation without removal. Two cables, 9” and 3’, allow the E500PTH to be utilized both at home and beyond. With a price of $499.00, it might be a good idea to test them at your local retailers or try the online demo on Shure’s site. An accessories kit with 1/4” adapter, level attenuator, and carrying case is also available.
These earphones were actually road-tested by professional musicians. What better test could there be than allowing aurally-challenged heavy metal performers to try them?
