iSkin Ships Cerulean X1
iSkin today officially launched its Cerulean X1 earbuds geared towards audiophiles. Their in-canal design offers passive noise cancellation with three sizes of silicone ear tips to ensure a solid fit. Inside, the earphones are built with an emphasis on balanced audio rather than bass; the 9mm neodymium drivers are each housed in a bass-enhancing chamber to amplify the power of portable media players but are otherwise neutral enough to deliver clear high frequencies and a detailed mid-range, iSkin claims.
Versions are available in Blizzard (white) or Onyx (black) to match the iPod and many other players. iSkin itself offers the X1 today through its website for $100 with a carrying kit and anticipates the earbuds reaching resellers in the near future.
