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...

Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear Wireless / Sennheiser Momentum 2 On-Ear Wireless

The folks from Sennheiser graciously sent us a Momentum On-ear headphone for us to toy around with. I was personally excited to get my hands on this because it just looks really cool. So what can we expect from Sennheiser this time around?

Steelseries Siberia 840

Still, I think the 840s make a decent contender. Astro and SteelSeries are basically the only ones playing in the $300 end of the sandbox at this point, and I think there are points in favor of both the A50s and the 840s.

I really enjoyed my time with the UA Sport Flex Wireless headphones. You might find smarter wireless headphones on the market, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more practical sports headphone. The neckband design with integrated flex zones worked...

Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 Wireless

Conclusions The Beats Solo2 Wireless offers a supremely comfortable fit and delivers audio that is very sculpted, but in a pleasing way, with a focus on clarity in the highs and not overdoing things in the lows. The headphones also sound solid when...

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...

Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT Wireless

Sennheiser's HD 4.40 BT sounds fantastic for a $150 pair of Bluetooth headphones—there's full, round bass depth that goes all the way down to the subwoofer realm, matched with a clear high frequency response. Add to that a comfortable fit and easy...

RHA MA-750

Bass fiends will want to look elsewhere. RHA's MA750 Wireless earphones are geared toward listeners who want rich lows, but not a mega-bass sound signature. More than anything else, the sound signature highlights the higher frequencies—there's balance...

Plantronics RIG

Since this is a Plantronics product, you may expect some kind of Bluetooth support, so I should point out that Bluetooth is not supported in this version. It’s not hard to imagine that other versions could be built with fancier options at some point,...

Sony's MDR-XB950N1 headphones deliver a sound signature that's less crisp and bright than many we test, but avoid sounding muddy when the bass is tamped down. When the effect is engaged, all bets are off. The noise cancellation is quite good for this...
