Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450

Conclusions Turtle Beach's Ear Force Stealth 450 is an affordable and functional wireless gaming headset, but it's a solid example of getting what you pay for. It doesn't sound bad and it doesn't feel cheap, but it pales in comparison with the Editors'...

Sony PlayStation Platinum Wireless

The Sony Platinum are nothing special. Other than the features on the interface side of things, the restrictions placed on the 3D surround capabilities and uncomfortable design hold back the headset.

Skullcandy Method

In this price range, it's impressive to hear such powerful bass response, especially without distortion. Do we wish the Method Wireless were a bit crisper in the high-mids? Yes, but this won't be a deal breaker for many listeners, especially those who...

Jabra Sport Coach

The Jabra Sport Coach is essentially the same as its predecessor with a slightly different tack. The motion sensor arguably offers greater flexibility than the heart rate monitor of the Pulse, except Jabra has yet to fully utilize its capabilities....

808 Audio EAR CANZ

Never have I felt like I needed to race the clock when testing a product, but the EarCanz Tru battery life made things interesting. I understand the concept here, but without strong battery life (or even decent battery life, for that matter), you need...

It's got some small downsides, but the reasonably priced Sony MDR-XB50BS is a step up in sound from a lot of inexpensive wireless sports headphones.

Sony Xperia Ear

I was excited about the Xperia Ear and what it promised until I realized that, as it stands, the device does nothing different from Siri or Google over wired earbuds. In particular, the fact that it requires you to use your hand and press a button to...

Onkyo W800BT

We've been waiting a long time for a quality pair of in-earphones that are totally wire free. Now they're here in the Onkyo W800BT earbuds. The Onkyo W800BT earbuds are gorgeous as well as compact. Everything we hoped for in truly wireless earbuds.
