Gadget: Noise-Isolating “Rockets” Headphones from Aurisonic

IT IS ROCKET SCIENCE. When you think of “earphones”, you often think “a flimsy tangle of cables that’ll snap at the slightest tug.” Not so with Aurisonic’s Rockets, which are described as “solo precision micro-dynamic, noiseisolating in-ear headphones.”


Of particular interest are the Rocket’s cables, which incorporate PTFE (commonly used in the aerospace industry) and aramid (which is used for military-grade body armor) wrappings. The tips, meanwhile, are made using medical-grade polymers and come in six different sizes to ensure a proper and snug fit. Still think that earphones are nothing but inferior substitutes for proper headphones? Well, think again.
