AfterShokz's Trekz Air takes bone-conduction headphones to a new level
Truth be told, I haven't reviewed a bone-conduction headphone for several years. The reason for that was the early models I tested from AfterShokz sounded so bad it was hard to recommend them to anyone.

Choose from which direction you want to drown out the world with the Hero headphones
It's great to have a set of headphones to block out the world. But what if you want to let a few voices in? That's the concept behind the Stages Hero, a set of noise-canceling headphones we spotted at CES in Las Vegas on Thursday. the headphones include a circle of eight mics that lets you choose a specific direction from which to hear ambient sound. So if you're talking to the co-worker who sits in the cubicle across from you, but you want to block the co-workers on either side of you, you can select to hear ambient noise from your left and right sides, but not your front. you can also set key words ("Hey, Ashlee") and program specific voices that will break through the ambient sound.

This 3D audio soundbar promises to beat your home theater setup
Surround sound is an exercise in compromise. Surround speakers are cumbersome and expensive to set up. They require you sit in a 'sweet spot' to achieve a decent sense of positioning, and can't really replicate the sensation of sound getting close to your head. Headphones can position sound more accurately using techniques like binaural recordings, but those are rare to find and are isolated to a single person.
