Jays u-Jays

Jays’ new u-Jays headphones offer an impressive mix of minimalist styling, balanced sound, and effortless comfort that should make them a coveted choice in the competitive on-ear segment. We wish they offered a more organic touch to instrumentation and...

Roccat Renga

Conclusions The Roccat Renga is comfortable and uniquely stylish, but its audio performance won't likely blow you away. But then, at $50, it doesn't have to. It's a capable gaming headset that offers good value considering its build quality and...

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...

Sony MDR-1A

The supercomfortable Sony MDR-1A does a good job balancing clarity with just enough of laid-backness to make it a very versatile headphone that's well worth considering if you're looking for a full-size headphone in the $250-$300 range.

House of Marley Rebel BT

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the Rebel BT delivers some thunderous low-end that will appeal to bass lovers. At top, unwise listening levels, the Rebel BT doesn't distort on this track,...

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...

NuForce BE6

It’s difficult to find fault with theBE6i at this price range. That NuForce was able to find anything to improveupon in the BE6 is surprising. But, after spending significant time with theBE6i, I can fully recommend it to any who is interested in a...

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."

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...

Apple AirPods

With Apple kissing the standard headphone jack goodbye, it's hoping people will buy these completely wireless earbuds instead. They're elegant in some ways, with a simple pairing process and good voice-call quality. It's too bad that Apple otherwise...
