2012 CES Preview: Audio

The best CES products at the CES Show are the ones you don’t know about. But the ones we DO know make our ears ring (in a good way.) In the audio category, top rated headphones, speakers, and wireless streaming dominate the Vegas CES’s exhibits for the CES show 2012. The cheapest headphones can also get outstanding Headphone Reviews, so be sure to check out Vanns.

Klipsch's Mode M40 headphones

CES 2012 has named Klipsch’s Mode M40 headphones the International CES Show 2012 Innovative Design and Engineering Awards Honoree. These top rated headphones allow listeners to have up to 45 hours of ANC on a single AAA battery. They run longer on battery power than any other headphone in the market and Headphone Reviews confirm they also run the longest without battery. CES 2012 judges base their decision for “Most Innovative” on the following criteria: engineering, aesthetics, intended use, unique and novel features, and how the design compares to other products in the market. Klipsch will also host a concert on Wednesday night of the Vegas CES.

Logitech's wireless boombox for iPods and tablets

Logitech had 3 products recognized as CES 2012 Best of Innovations Honorees, including Logitech’s wireless boombox for iPods and tablets. Part boombox, part dock, and part internet streamer, this CES Show honoree features two 3” laser-tuned neodymium drivers for a resonant mid range, two ½” neodymium tweeters for rich high notes, and four 2” passive radiators for crisp bass. Just keep the boombox within 33 feet of your device in order for you to still control your music and maintain Bluetooth connectivity.

How V-Zone, the earlier version of V-Spot works.

From the same company that brought you the world’s first voice-controlled system (Voco’s V-Zone) comes a new all-in-one media system that shares music from virtually any device that holds the music you own or want to discover: smart phones, tablets, iPods, PC or MAC, external hard drives, internet radio, and YouTube. Voco named this system the V-Spot and will have a panel at the CES show 2012 entitled “Come play with our V-Spot” where attendees can listen to the brilliant sound delivered with five Class D amplifiers, a subwoofer, two woofers, and two tweeters. Further, the V-Spot allows for photo and Youtube video sharing to the TV, all from the application!

Check out these awesome audio CES products and millions more at the CES Show. Vegas CES will also host nightly concerts in which audio manufacturers showcase their speaker systems: Monster cable, Klipsch, and HackaPalooza will be the highlighted CES 2012 concert brands.
