First Look: Moshi's polished Keramo earphones

1:35 /

The company's sleek $120 in-ear headphones feature ceramic earpieces and clean sound.

I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for CNET.com and I'm here with the Moshi Keramo In-ear Headphones. Moshi is known for making very stylish products, and makes a lot of iPhone and iPad cases. Also has a line of earphones and these are mid-range model, priced at $120. And really, their claim to fame is their earpieces are made out of ceramic, have a very polished stone look to them. They're very cool looking. They also sound good. They're considered balanced headphones. I found them nicely detailed with a decent amount of base but really these do not push the base. So if you're used to an earphone or want an earphone with a big boomy base, this is certainly not it. This has a flatter profile so really more balanced across the treble mid-range and base. These are slightly bigger earpieces so they may not fit everyone's ears quite as well as others. I thought they were pretty comfortable. They also do have an in-line remote with a microphone for making cell phone calls; that in-line remote is Apple-friendly. And they also come with a nice carrying case, a unique carrying case. They're designed to both protect the earphones and also are good for cord management. So all in all, an eye-catching earphone that also sounds good. It may not be for everybody, especially those who like a ton of base, but a decent enough value at $120. I'm David Carnoy and those are the Moshi Keramo In-ear Headphones. Thanks for watching.
