Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the SoundLink On-Ear delivers intense deep bass response. At top, unwise listening levels, the bass does not distort, and at moderate-to-high volume levels,...

Kingston HyperX Cloud

After more than 100 hours of research and testing 37 models, plus more hours of long term comfort testing than we could count, we think the Kingston HyperX Cloud is the best gaming headset for most. It sounds great, comes with a variety of ear pads,...

Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 / M2 / Momentum G / Momentum I (Over-Ear / Around-Ear)

While we'd like to see it cost a little less, Sennheiser has fixed the original Momentum's one weakness, making the new 2.0 Momentum not only sound slightly better but fit more comfortably.

Bose SoundTrue Ultra In-Ear

If you're looking for a pair of clean-sounding, really comfortable in-ear noise-isolating headphones that stay in your ears, the Bose SoundTrue Ultra should be on your short list.

RHA is known for its affordable earphones, but with the T10i, the company enters new pricing territory. At $199.95, this pair is more expensive than some of the leading in-canal options, like the $180 Editors' Choice Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2....

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,...

RHA S500i

RHA has made a name for itself by offering quality headphones and earphones at budget prices. Eventually the company expanded its lineup to include some pricier options, like the RHA T20, but is returning to its roots with the S500i. The in-ear S500i,...

Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear 2.0 (M2) / Momentum In-Ear G / Momentum In-Ear i

The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear doesn't measure up to the high standard set by other more expensive headphones in the Momentum line, but it still has a lot going for it for the price.

Philips Fidelio X2

I had an idea of what to expect with the Fidelio X2 having previously owned the X1, both headphones output a smooth and fun sound. The X1 is slightly less refined though it makes up for that with slightly meatier bass. The sound output by both of them...

JBL Reflect Mini BT

Sony MDR-100AAP

In short though, despite the ridiculous name and some iffy colour choices, the h.ear on MDR-100AAP offer up a superb sound, a comfortable listening experience and they're well worth a look - we can't imagine regretting buying a pair.
