Shure's Direct Injection Headphones

injection-iv.jpgJust in time for Easter, Shure just dropped a bombshell on headphone lovers everywhere by introducing the industry’s first direct-injection headphones. They promise to beat the hell out of regular old canalphones, thanks to a tiny tube sticking out from the end of the earphone that actually rests directly against your eardrum. But don’t worry, it’s only 70 percent as dangerous as it sounds.

(The fine print says you shouldn’t use the new Shure AF500’s while running, lying down, kung fu fighting, or moving in any way, as they may punch a hole in your eardrums.)
