It would be an understatement to say that Vestalife understands the right way to appeal to budget- and fashion-conscious iPod and iPhone users; its line of stylish speakers have deservedly won multiple awards, and now the company has unleashed a series of new earphones upon the world: Boa, BumbleBee, and Scarab. Each of the designs has a somewhat Egyptian look and feel, with the Boa wrapping a snake-like cord around the base of the earphone, BumbleBee using a glossy clear housing to protect a black and gold set of circles inside, and Scarab using tapered gold pulls on a silver body to make insertion and removal of each earpiece easier. Fabric cords, silicone eartips, and simple, multi-device compatible headphone plugs are included with each model; Vestalife will sell basic models for $25-$30 with one- and three-button remote versions climbing up to $45. Sound quality is surprisingly impressive given the price tags, and the female-friendly designs may well cross over into guy territory with new colors in the future.
