From the Apple Expo in Paris XtremeMac has announced its new FS1 High Definition Earphones. The poweful little in-ear phones are the result of a partnership with Future Sonics, the leading manufacturer—and creator—of the personal monitors that you see tucked in the ears of, well, every music act that can afford them. Where other non-pro headphones use amarture-type drivers, like in hearing aids, the FS1 uses a dynamic transducer and some other patented technologies. These earphones promise to reduce outside noise, and produce natural tone and full bass even at low volumes—one area where Apple's earbuds really tank. And if these approach the professional-grade (and considerably more expensive) units from Future Sonics, then it's quite a bargain at $149.95.
