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...

HiFiMAN HE-400i

If you've always wanted to own a pair of high-end "audiophile" headphones but can't quite justify dropping a grand on a pair, the superb sounding HiFiMan HE-400i is a good compromise.

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...

Sony MDR-NC750

These are great, can't hear a thing outside not even traffic on a dual carriage way lol, not sure how much of this is down to the noise isolation or the fact that the headphones are pretty loud. Have tried to compare turning isolation off/on with music...

Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless

We listed the lack of active noise cancellation as a "con," but given the audio performance of these wireless cans, some audio fanatics will actually consider that a "pro."
