Prototype Engineer Avery Louie tore down a pair of Beats headphones to see what makes them tick (or thump) and what he found inside is pretty sad. Amidst "generic drivers" and the cost-reducing tricks of the trade many of you ID'ers are familiar with—designing plastic parts that snap together rather
When we saw this photo, we thought we missed something in our History of Braun Products series. This minimalist turntable certainly looks like their handiwork: But nope, that's the Essential II model from modern-day manufacturer Pro-Ject Audio Systems, a company based in Austria.
