Oppo PM-3

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2

It’s a big year for Razer. Less than six months ago, I was ragging on the outclassed Kraken in my Man O’ War review. Now the Kraken’s folded in many of the Man O’ War’s improvements, but with a durable aluminum design and much more affordable $100...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay E8

Sonically, the Beoplay E8 is capable of many sound signatures, but its baseline will please plenty of listeners. Functionally, the design fits securely and is easy to use. Generally speaking, this is a very good pair of earphones, but there is the...

Urbanears Stadion

The Urbanears Stadion is a good choice if you're looking for earphones that fit securely and look stylish. The bass response is dialed back a bit, but it's not thin or brittle, and the design lets in some ambient noise so you're aware of your...

Plantronics Voyager Focus UC

You can find the Plantronics Voyager Focus UC for $199 at most retailers. Even at that price, it costs more than a standard mono Bluetooth headset. But it replaces a lot of devices. For road warriors, its sound quality is good enough to use as a...

Blue Microphones Ella

While these things sound great — really great, I don’t think the average consumer will notice the subtle and granular audio differences between planar magnetic and traditional headphones. I do think that the addition of an amplifier makes a huge...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit

The awkwardly large inline remote keeps the BackBeat Fit 300 from being an ideal running headphone, but there's still a lot to like about them.

JBL Reflect Mini BT

There's no discounting the mysterious motivational powers of mega-bass sound at the gym. If serious low-end presence in a Bluetooth, exercise-friendly earphone pair is what you're after, you have plenty of options. We like the Jabra Sport Pace, the...

Marshall Headphones Major II

Marshall headphones, from their inception, have defied the gimmicky concept of invoking the look of the iconic Marshall guitar amps. Fashioning headphones and speakers this way could have been a great chance to skimp on actual audio performance in the...

808 Audio EAR CANZ

Never have I felt like I needed to race the clock when testing a product, but the EarCanz Tru battery life made things interesting. I understand the concept here, but without strong battery life (or even decent battery life, for that matter), you need...
