Beats Studio 2.0

They may not be a bargain at $300, but the new Beats Studio headphones are lighter and better-built, and sound significantly better than the original Beats Studio model.

Plantronics BackBeat GO 2

Buying an audio product requires balancing your priorities for sound quality and price. If you can spend a lot on a pair of headphones, they're probably going to sound great (with certain distinctions between the models). If you can't spend a lot,...

Philips Fidelio M1BT

These headphones have been received in many places with rapture, but that's misplaced. They are very good, and if the styling appeals to you more than the gargantuan (but much nicer-sounding) Logitech UE 9000s, they're definitely at least worth...

Sennheiser IE 800

Somehow, there's the perception that extremely high quality audio should be inexpensive to buy, whether through speakers or earphones, while a high quality television should naturally set you back about a thousand bucks. I get it—we're a visual...

Sennheiser PC 363D

The main complaint we saw about them on is that the sound card software is fairly weak. "There are no EQ settings, no mic modulation, no level balancing, no adjustments of any kind," complains one user. "You can choose stereo surround or one...
