Taking siege of your beats

23 Sep, 2009


Siege Audio began with a small crew of pro snowboarders wanting what every rider wants; quality headphones at an affordable price that can handle the mountain. With knowledge from the future, Siege brought that to us and will continue to bring audio products that work on and off the mountain. Based out of SLC, “SIEGE™ is listening. Rider owned. Community driven. Leading-edge + precision-built.”

They launched their sound-isolating Stealth Ear Cannons and will introduce more products in the future including the Eleven, Division and Alpha headphones.  Unlike other audio brands, Siege openly engages customers to find out likes/dislikes of audio equipment and are striving to bring a product that adapts to what riders need and want.

The Siege Audio Stealth Ear Cannons feature tangle-free cords, 12mm sound drivers, cord control system, low-profile design and arbre Isolation caps. The stealth’s start at $39.95 and come in multiple cord colors like black, gray, red and green.

I was able to get my hands on the Siege Stealth ear cannons to try on the mountain this winter and will review them as the season is underway.  I’ve been rocking them at work when I need to tune out a meeting in my office or at the gym when I’m working out. The best part is since I received the Stealth ear cannons, I’ve been rocking it with my Ipod Nano and for the first time the ear buds don’t hurt my ears after wearing them all day.

You can check out Siege Audio at their  Website, Twitter and Facebook to interact and find more about the company.

    I was amped on these headphones when i got them. Then they stopped working 2 weeks later and my opinions changed. Decent sound and love the cloth cord but quality may be an issue

    Although I’m not a big fan of snowboarding with tunes (I think it’s a bit antisocial), I can appreciate what they’ve done with their tech here. Looking really good!

    I just got a pair myself, and the sound quality is amazing. The kind that make you want to shut off the lights, sit and listen to incredible tunes.

    Interesting JP, I’ve had mine for almost 2 weeks now and so far no issues. I’ll be riding them for a couple months before I put up the review on them. Stoked so far and no complaints. Did you contact Siege to see about replacing them?

    I wonder who’s drivers they’re using.

    They cost more than my Sony earbuds, which have been perfect for over two years now. And I doubt they’ll have better quality.

    This is cool but it’s kind of like another Skullcandy in the works. Snowboarding headphones are nice but pro snowboarders should, well, stick to snowboarding. Maybe I’ll change my opinion if I ever get to test some of these out.

    I might get some if they last but most headphones dont last more than a month for me. Especially Skull Candy’s
