Okay guys, I’d have never heard of the Supertooth Freedom headphones if it wasn’t for your episode… now that I want them and can’t do without them… where can I get them in the US? =o(
Thanks in advance… love the Show!
John P. says
Sorry, but at the moment those are only available from the Supertooth website. I know we’re generally spoiled in the US and don’t often have to order our gadgets internationally, but the only thing I can tell you is that you either have to do that… or wait. And it could be a while.
If it means anything to you… I am carrying mine around in my backpack permanently now. 😉
Steve Hopkins says
Sadly the Euro price point plus shipping places this set at over $200 USD… While I’m sure it’s still a great set, it changes it’s perceived ‘value’ considerably.
May I ask where you saw the $129 USD price point?
P.S. If they mean anything to you, you’d better keep them in your backpack… If I happen to see you travelling I’m going to pickpocket you like you were an Assassin’s Creed NPC chump! ;o)

Hi great overview.Can you please help me decide between the bose soundlink mini and the jbl pulse?
Michael Aye says
Thanks! Great overview! Any tips on how to decide between the V-Moda and KEF M500? Oh, and your camera is somehow very black-heavy, isn’t it?
John P. says
The main way to decide between the V-Moda and KEF is whether you want ON ear or OVER ear. The V-Moda is going to completely cover your ear and seal up against the side of your head. They are also a little heavier, and more durable.
If you tend to be hard on equipment, and if you need to really block out surrounding noise, the V-Moda is a better choice. If you want lighter, more accurate sound go with the KEF.
