Onkyo E700M

Combine that with its fantastic construction, comfort and overall sound quality, and you're on to a real winner. My only complaint is its lack of lack of volume controls. Otherwise, they're an excellent pair of in-ear headphones and certainly a major...

Beyerdynamic’s T70p took us on an elegant tour of deep textures, spatial dimension, and vivid detail, the likes of which are hard to find, even at its $500 price tag. On top of that, the headset is supremely comfortable, allowing us to listen for hours...

Philips Fidelio X2

I had an idea of what to expect with the Fidelio X2 having previously owned the X1, both headphones output a smooth and fun sound. The X1 is slightly less refined though it makes up for that with slightly meatier bass. The sound output by both of them...

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.

Astro A40 TR

Conclusions Astro Gaming's latest version of the A40 headset is unsurprisingly excellent. It's also unsurprisingly pricey. Still, it's a testament to Astro's design and engineering that the A40 TR stands as a rock-solid gaming headset aimed at serious...

Philips FX5M

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...
