Sometimes bigger IS really better, especially when it comes to sound. That’s why we took a puny pair of earbuds, put them in Fred’s highly technical Way Big machine, and created 500XL — it’s 500 times the size of the original! How great will these look on your desktop alongside your mp3 player or PC? And how great will they sound? 500XL includes a built-in amp and 3-way power — it runs on batteries or you can connect it to your PC’s USB port with the supplied cord. The stand-up, peggable clamshell pack really makes a statement.
