About a week before Apple agreed to buy Beats for $3 billion, one of the companys earliest employees filed a lawsuit against the headphone-maker, accusing it of cutting him and others out of potentially millions in royalties. Now Lamar has started another headphone venture aimed at eating Beats lunch, called Roam, and its first product is Ropes, $299 earbuds designed to hang on your neck when youre not using them, like a fashion statement. Lamar boldly says they also happen to be the best-sounding earbuds on the market, with the most customizable sound. The difference is that you can adjust the sound straight to the headphones using a mobile app, then carry those presets to any other device with an audio source.
