Skullcandy Grind

When I first saw the Skullcandy Grind, it appeared the company had done the unthinkable: design a pair of headphones very clearly targeted at young consumers, without including phone controls. But it turns out this $59.99 on-ear headphone pair is a bit...

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'...

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....

Shure SRH1540

Most headphones we test tend to have a moderate-to-intense bass response, so reviewing a pair like the Shure SRH1540 almost comes as a shock. Few headphones can extend down as low as 5Hz and yet deliver accurate bass response that doesn't boost the...

Beyerdynamic DT1770 Pro

Performance and Conclusions Like all excellent studio headphones, the DT 1770 Pro walks the fine line between pure flat response and slight boosting in certain frequency ranges to allow for clarity, richness, and depth. On tracks with powerful...

Plantronics RIG 500E

Conclusions The RIG 500's big draw is its flexibility, and the $150 RIG 500E is the most flexible model in the series. It gives you just short of two gaming headsets (you'll have to get a second headband if you want both at once), each of which sounds...

Kingston HyperX Cloud II

Gaming headsets don't have to be just for gaming. Any good set can also work well as regular stereo headphones, as long as they have a 3.5mm connection and sound good, and the boom mic doesn't get in the way. However, most gaming headsets embrace...

Sony MDR-100AAP

While it would stand out from the competition more if it cost a little less, the Sony H.ear On MDR-100A is a likable over-ear headphone that's comfortable, sounds good, and is attractively designed.

Bose SoundSport IE

While the Bose SoundSport In-Ear may not be the best sounding in-ear headphone for the money, the design and comfort level are great, and it's ideal for people who want this sort of headphone style without the need to jam the tips into their ear canals.
