Splashing out over £200 for a pair of in-ears is an extravagant act, but if you’re going to treat yourself, the PSB M4U 4s are worth a listen. However, the standards are high in the ever-expanding in-ears market, and these PSBs need to be just a little...

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.

Jabra Eclipse

The Jabra Eclipse is a super-small Bluetooth headset, but it's hard to control, and too dependent on how and where you hold your phone.

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...

Beats by Dr. Dre PowerBeats2 Wireless

Some audiophiles may thumb their noses at Beats' bass-boosted, celebrity-endorsed speakers and headphones, but the brand helped bring better sound to the forefront for otherwise casual listeners. But despite my gratitude toward Beats for making people...

You only have to look to the Award-winning AKG Y50s to find a more comfortable fit and far more engaging, dynamic and stunningly subtle performance. Which makes the Y40s’ unbalanced presentation all the more puzzling. The punchy, agile rhythms are...

I got these headphones for my Z5 compact and they work well. The sound is clear and the bass is great, but noise cancellation is ok. The only other noise cancelling headphones I've tried before are Bose QC15 and they were a lot better at cancelling...
