The inner ear is full of head wind, punk-rock ear drumming, and thin, angry cochleae looking for one good reason to start a fight with the vestibular nerve.

Free shipping is included in the cost of this Groupon.
Maximo Products is a Washington-based audio accessory developer obsessively dedicated to providing quality sound products. Airborne iPod listeners can shut out engine noise and the chatter of talkative travelling companions with Maximo's iM-590 enhanced-definition isolation earphones ($60), whose ergonomically-designed eartips snugly fit into even the most oddly shaped canals. Closer to the ground, the lightweight in-line mic and nearly invisible rubber cable of the iP-HS2 isolation headset ($50) make it easy for onlookers in city parks to mistake businessmen on conference calls for pigeon whisperers. A single-touch control button rests on the chest for easy access when you need to hang up or switch tracks. See the full selection of earphones and headsets on Maximo's website.
- And Maximo’s iM-590 iMetal Isolation Earphones were my overall favorite, regardless of price, thanks to performance comparable to the MetroFi 220 and ATH-CK6A (with a tonal balance nicely between those two models), unique aesthetics, a lavish cloth-wrapped cord, and an assortment of included accessories for only $60. – R. Matthew Ward, Macworld
- All I have to say about these headphones is WOW! I could give you a million and one reasons to go out and buy these, but I will make this review short and sweet. If you are in the market for a new set of headphones then look no further. – A.J. Repp, The Gadgeteer
