Rock Jaw Alfa Genus V2

When you buy earphones you usually have to choose between audio quality and how much you want to spend. British company Rock Jaw Audio, however, is on a mission to provide a strong listening experience at an affordable price.

Audio Technica ATH-M50x

The new ATH-M50x has the same sound as the previous version, but with a few added features.

Shure SE846

On Jay-Z and Kanye West's "No Church in the Wild," the sub-bass synth hits that punctuate the drum loop are delivered with the full fury of their lowest frequencies, but not in a manner that overtakes the rest of the mix. The most powerful sound here...

Pioneer SE‑MS7BT

Bought these without trying them, the sound is clear, I'm hearing sounds on tracks I've never noticed before.

Audiofly AF120

With great sound quality and a reinforced design, the Audiofly AF120 monitors are ideal for musicians and audio buffs who want only the best — but that comes at a steep, $249 price.

Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 350VR

It's great whether you use it with VR or not. The sound quality is good (not the best you can find but it's on a high standard). Good bass and they feel light and comfortable.

Beyerdynamic Amiron Home

We recently reviewed another excellent pair of headphones with variable bass response—the $500 Sennheiser HD 630VB. Interestingly, these headphones look like the Amiron Home—like gear better suited for the living room or basement than the subway—but...

Bowers & Wilkins P7

Conclusions For $400, the Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless sounds, looks, and feels like a luxury product. If you're shopping in this higher price tier, there are plenty of compelling wireless options, so it's worth reading up on the JBL Everest Elite 700...

If you're trying to decide between the T10i and the T20, the T20 is, in our opinion, the better option, but bass lovers will likely gravitate more to the T10i. For slightly less money, we also are big fans of the Westone W10. But most of the earphones...

Sony MDR-ZX770BT

Performance and Conclusions The MDR-ZX770BT is outfitted with a feature Sony calls "Beat Response Control," which sounds like a gimmicky term for "digital signal processing" (DSP), a way headphones and speakers avoid distortion on bass at high volumes...

Noontec Zoro II

You can probably tell that I quite like the ZORO II. Noontec created a balanced pair of headphones, that get the wireless part right and provide quality sound at the same time. The only thing that you may not like is the price, which, for the version...

Skullcandy Grind

If you like the idea of the Grind's bass-forward, affordable on-ear experience, but you'd rather have a less flashy headphone pair, Shure makes two solid options in this price range: the Shure SRH145m+ and the Shure SRH144. If you have more room in...

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear II

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the SoundLink AE II delivers a low frequency response that should please bass lovers. It's not so wildly boosted that it will drive others away, but...

Onkyo H500BT

Overall we rather like aspects of the Onkyo H500BT on-ear headphones. They're small and light, yet deliver decent audio whether using them wired or wirelessly via Bluetooth. The caveat, in our experience, is that potentially poor positioning will lose...

JBL Under Armour

These sweat-proof wireless earbuds produce some of the best sound and they stay put, which is half the battle when working out. They are a bit pricey but the included MapMyRun membership could make this a great buy for some users.

JBL's E35 headphones deliver a clean, balanced sound signature that doesn't skimp on the lows. We're also fans of the Urbanears Humlan, the M-Audio M50, and the Marshall Major II.
