Up until recently, if you wanted to replace your crappy-sounding plastic iPod / MP3 player earbuds with audiophile 'buds made from Japanese Hokkaido cherry wood, you had to go shopping in Akihabara. No more: Audio-Technica is bringing its previously Japan-only lineup of high-end portable earphones to the United States. Also in the new "Import Series": aluminum and titanium Bang & Olufsen-like headphones, a line of "reference quality" headphones for DJs, and audiophile studio headphones. Prices start at $119; watch for them to hit stateside at CES.
