Griffin WoodTones Over the Ear

Making wood the primary design element for headphones is a trend, so it's easy to wonder if companies are simply trying to cash in on a look rather than actually make good gear. The Griffin WoodTones Over-the-Ear Headphones, though, are a nice...

Bowers & Wilkins P7

Bowers & Wilkins was one of the first luxury/hi-fi audio brands to begin offering more affordable speakers and headphones. Of course, "more affordable" is a relative term—B&W's in-ear and on-ear options start at about $175, and rise steadily through...

Sony MDR-XB910

At £199 the Sony MDR-XB910 is a premium product with both barrels aimed squarely at Beats by Dr Dre. With its superior 50mm driver, excellent noise isolating ear pads and look-at-me silver styling if you want a thumping nightclub inside your head...

Philips SHQ5200

Overall, we like the performance of the Philips ActionFit SHQ5200: they sound great and are comfortable and light enough to wear on the run. The detachable pads and water-resistance also means they are happy to get sweaty, so there's no concern when it...

Harman-Kardon SOHO

The Harmon Kardon Soho are a pair of compact, good-looking headphones that lack the sophisticated sound quality to justify the price.

The Phiaton Bridge MS 500 offer a pleasant blend of clear highs and barreling bass, all wrapped up in a flashy frame.

Stax SRS-4170

For a long time prior to the recent headphone revival, Stax was the headphone at the top of the heap. While dynamic full-range headphones have made dramatic leaps in sound quality (and price), if you are limited to headphone systems priced under...

iHome iB75

It seems silly to hold exercise-focused earphones to a different set of standards than regular earphones—after all, if the pair sounds good, it could be your all-the-time pair, not just the one you take to the gym. That said, the iHome iB75, a $99.99...

On Stage MSA9501 Posi-Lok Clutch

This little product is a must for inverting your mic. I hang my mic upside down because it takes away from the plosives hitting the body of the mic & causing a change in the sound of your vocals. Also, it allows more space to place a music stand, etc....

Supermicro Screwkit

Perfect screws for HDD trays! I bought these for my Lenovo RD430 server's HDD hot swap trays. The screws they included with the trays were so soft, the phillips drive would strip out in the heads! Oh and if you ever have low quality bolts crossthread...

Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1

I have a ribbon mic that's a little too soft going through the preamp of my audio interface. With this device you just turn on your phantom power, hook it in front of your mic (you'll need two XLR cables) and voila! You get +20 dB of clean gain. It...

On Stage SS7914B Wall Mount Speaker Bracket

I use these to mount my Yamaha StagePAS 300 system to the wall. I have to use L brackets to keep the speakers in place since the speakers do not have a bottom hole to mount them. They work perfect for what I needed them for. Highly recommend!

Planet Waves 1/4 Inch Male-to-Spade Lug Replacement Cable

This is the BEST! If you have a stock combo consider upgrading to this. Thicker wire and gold plating makes for better sound without any doubt! Worth the money for the sound!
