At least two companies — Maxell and Coby — are already gearing up for International CES, to be held in Las Vegas Jan. 7-10, 2010, by releasing information about the headphones they will debut at the show.
Coby will be introducing what a spokeswoman for the company called its first “headphones combo pack” — a pair of over-the-ear headphones (models CV215) packaged with a pair of the company's Jammerz ear buds.
Bowers & Wilkins announced it would be entering the headphones market with the introduction of the P5.
The headphones are said to feature specially developed ultra-linear neodymium magnets and highly optimized Mylar diaphragms. The construction is meant to isolate noise for users who don't need full electronic noise cancellation; this is achieved through a combination of the closed-back design featuring a rigid metal faceplate, and the sealed-leather ear pads, Bowers & Wilkins said.
The headphones category started 2010 off with a bang, with several companies beginning the new year with new introductions.
Vizio used International CES, held in Las Vegas earlier this month, to announce it was entering the headphones category with the introduction of two products: a pair of wireless headphones and a pair of headphones that feature Bluetooth connectivity.
