Monster Airlink Elements: Jewelry in Your Ear, Jewelry You Can Hear

Among the many headphones and wireless speakers that we saw at Monster’s CES booth, was a small display with three pairs of truly wireless in-ear headphones.

Modular’s MOD-1 Bluetooth Headphones Are Digital, Analog, and Wireless All in One

If you’ve never heard of Modular, they are an American-based Audio company that has taken to CES to introduce their Mod-1 Digital, Analog, and Wireless Headphones.

Just announced at CES 2018 are four new models of the JBL Endurance, the company’s line of sport earphones for active lifestyles.
