3×1 Welcomes Master & Dynamic to 15 Mercer

  It's no secret that at 3x1 we're suckers for high quality materials and impeccable attention to detail - that's why we instantly became fans of Master & Dynamic.    Based on looks alone, Master & Dynamic has undoubtedly broken the mold of standard headphones. From the butter-like, lambskin ear pads to the sleek and durable stainless steel body, you can really tell that you're wearing a product of quality. And if you're worried about missing parts or tragic damages, don't be. Master & Dynamic quotes, "We design our parts to be easily replaceable, ensuring that our headphones continue to perform with precision for decades to come." Thank goodness for that, because once you have these on you won't want to take them off. Ok, maybe in the shower.      Design aside, these headphones will provide you with the most clean and crisp sound that your mind has ever been privy to. "It's almost like hearing your favorite song for the first time," says one 3x1 staff member who owns a pair herself. They are specifically design to give you a rich, balanced sound. "Our expansive soundscape captures the detail that well recorded music has to offer. Our tuning was designed to complement a diversity of tastes and musical genres," M&D says. Another feature we love is the exposed mute button. Instead of fumbling for your phone when you want to pause or mute, you can simply press the mute button located conveniently on the side of the headphones.     The MH40 Headphones in both black and gunmetal are now available for purchase at 15 Mercer. See below for a detailed diagram of why these headphone rule.         Email us for more information       |       Visit Master & Dynamic's website. ... Read more

Future Islands

Future Islands.  A band to know?  Yes.  Possessed lead singer?  Maybe.  Post-Wave powerhouse in the making?  Absolutely.   As any 40 year old music fan will tell you, especially one with a partially torn right eardrum, hey, I've seen a few live acts in my day.  With a spectator's arc starting in the 9th grade, sneaking away from home to drive to LA to see Jane's Addiction or The Cure, then taking me to Seattle for seven years during the Mudhoney, Nirvana, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam era, with a couple dozen Morrissey shows thrown in for good measure, and more recently a lot of 'quality time' spent with LCD Soundsystem and a half dozen of their performances.  Yeah, sure, there was a 10 year love affair with house dj's and minimal techno (thank you Troy Pierce), as well as 17 years of living in NYC and spending more than a few unhealthy evenings at the Bowery, Webster Hall, and Terminal 5 in recent years ... So, it stands to reason that you think you've seen it all, or at least a variation of it.  Right?   And then a guy named Sam Herring walks through the door, with his little band, Future Islands.  I first heard them at my friend Michael's coffee shop on Orchard a year or so ago, but had never seen them play until last night.  I can only promise you this ... short of a Casey Spooner performance, there's really nothing that properly describes the commanding, bouncy, at times demonic  performance of Herring, and although it's completely different musically, it's enticing theater nonetheless. I promise you I'll never miss another show.  That being said, I hope you don't either.  They were truly incredible, and Herring is nothing short of brilliant, both as a performer and a singer.   Read more reviews of their live performances here.  See you April 30th at Webster Hall!  (Photos courtesy of Charles Steinberg |                 ...
