RHA T10i

RHA is known for its affordable earphones, but with the T10i, the company enters new pricing territory. At $199.95, this pair is more expensive than some of the leading in-canal options, like the $180 Editors' Choice Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2....

Sony MDR-1ABT

The Sony MDR-1ABT Bluetooth over-ear headphones are not just big in size, they're just as big in the audio department too. Delivering big bass without being over-the-top, there's oodles of all-round quality and excellent balance to be found here,...

beyerdynamic DX 120IE

Beyerdynamic's DX 120 iE in-ears (MSRP $99) do a lot of things well, especially for the price. For in-ear types, they're quite comfortable, with the added bonus that they block plenty of outside noise. Buyers are sure to love the added accessories, too.

Plantronics BackBeat Pro+

Priced higher by $50 this time around, the Plantronics BackBeat Pro+ is a tougher sell than last year’s original model in the BackBeat Pro. As we’ve detailed, the only difference here is just the accent color of the headphones and the included USB...

Creative Sound Blaster Jam

Most of the Bluetooth headphones we test are intended to look cool or eye-catching in some way, sometimes to the (seemingly unintentional) detriment of the audio experience. No one can accuse the budget-friendly Creative Sound Blaster Jam of this...

Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless

We wish the Sport Pulse Wireless fit and sounded better. We’re not applying audiophile principles here, it’s just that when music sounds empty and distant, it tends to suck the wind right out of your sails … and your workout. Still, it could be argued...

Samsung Level U (EO-BG920)

Despite a few small downsides, the Samsung Level U Pro is one of the better sounding collar-style Bluetooth headphones and offers a comfortable fit.

Razer Hammerhead Pro V2

Razer's Hammerhead Pro V2 is a solid set of earphones, but without a boom mic, it fails to impress as a gaming headset.

Pioneer SE-Master1

We got a chance to try out the new SE-Master1 headphones at CEDIA from Pioneer. They sounded great, but with a $2500 price tag they better sound amazing and cook you breakfast too.

Inateck Aries

Given its very cheap price of £18, the Inateck Aries is an affordable and terrific-sounding earphone. To add to its competencies the earphones have an in-line mic, which works across all mobile devices, and an elegant wooden design.

NAD Viso HP50

The NAD isn't head and shoulders above the competition in its price class, but it does sound really good and should be given careful consideration if you're looking for an audiophile-grade headphone that won't break the bank.

SoundMAGIC has been generating quite a buzz in the budget-priced earphone stakes recently, so I decided to check out three different models to see what all the fuss is about: the E10 ($35), the E-30 ($40), and the PL50 ($55). While some brands tend to...

Puro BT2200

For an on-ear—versus an over -the-ear—headphone, I was pleasantly surprised by the Puro’s ability to isolate outside noise. They fit very snugly against my head, making a good, tight seal on my ears. Taking the Puro headphones for a spin on an...

First of all these headphones do sound great for the price of £10. However they do not have the clarity of other headphones around the RRP. The choice of materials is not so good. The cushions and top of the headband and earcups is covered in a...
