Listen To Believe. Sometimes that’s all you need to do to be sold on a product. This also happens to be the full name of the company LTB Audio, and their newest product is the Magnum 5.1 USB Headphones.

LTB will showcase these products at the 2007 CES show in
The Magnum 5.1 USB headphones come packaged in a clear plastic box, so right off the shelf you can see what type of product you are looking at. The silver earpieces are the first things to catch your eye. Glancing at the labeling you will notice that they are USB headphones and have a built in microphone. To me, this is a plus from the get go; I hate having a microphone hanging around my mouth (it makes it really hard to drink my favorite caffeinated beverage).
The earpieces are cushioned for comfort. You will also notice that the cord connects to only one earpiece, unlike other designs where both earpieces are corded.
