As the resident gadget guy at work, I've tried my fair share of in-ear headphones throughout the years. One of the more interesting things I've come across is how various earphone makers address the fitting problem. See, unlike their on-ear and over-the-ear cousins, in-ear headphones can be like an unwanted beer belly: they tend to, well, pop out. To suck in those bellies, er, buds, I've seen earphones resort to all sorts of solutions. These include hooks that wrap around your ears, rubber nubs that press against the ear wall and outer layers designed to fit like hearing aids. In the case of id America's Metropolitan headphones, the company opts for another popular countermeasure as of late — memory foam. Does it work?

Back when I was young and still considered cute by people other than my mom, I had an uncle who loved to build his own speaker boxes. At the time Apple's "AirPlay" technology for streaming music didn't exist, though, my uncle did use the speakers to listen to Air Supply. Yes, my kingdom for selective amnesia. Now that I've got a bunch of horribly sappy songs stuck in my head, I would be quite appreciative if you would kindly check out my Wren V5AP AirPlay speaker review.
