Though its packaging raised eyebrows by prominently using the bizarre phrase "my little music elf," Luxa2's F2 In-Ear Earphone ($TBD) is an interesting design from a company that hasn't been known in the past for audio gear. The concept is to merge a flat glossy colored plastic back with a chromed out housing and silicone eartips, using magnets inside to enable the earphones to stay together around your neck when not in use. Three sets of tips are included, along with an oversized carrying case, and Luxa2 uses thin flat rubber cabling with a small 3.5mm plug. Black, gray-white, and red versions are available. European pricing suggests that F2 will cost roughly $35 in the United States.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
