Sennheiser Urbanite XL

The Sennheiser Urbanite XL is a well-designed Beats competitor that costs less and sounds as good or better.

Audioquest Nighthawk

At last count, Amazon had 62,541 entries in its headphone category. Out of those I can almost guarantee that none of them sound similar to the AudioQuest NightHawk. With a lesser headphone, that would usually be a bad thing. But if you follow...

Fostex TH-5

Bought these for their high impedance - listed as 70 Ohms. Disappointed on opening and finding they are in fact less than 45 Ohms.

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.

Beats Solo2

By now, headphone enthusiasts should know the drill with Beats: If you love big, booming bass, read on, and if you want a flat-response, critical listening-appropriate headphone pair, move on past the Beats Solo 2 (maybe to the Editors' Choice...

The AKG N90Q are a ridiculously expensive set of over-ear headphones that do their absolute best to impress you, and succeed. But ultimately, even when considering the included accessories, the package just isn't worth the asking price.

Puro Sound Labs BT2200 Kids Wireless Headphones

For an on-ear—versus an over -the-ear—headphone, I was pleasantly surprised by the Puro’s ability to isolate outside noise. They fit very snugly against my head, making a good, tight seal on my ears. Taking the Puro headphones for a spin on an...

Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum

If you game on just one platform – PC, PlayStation or Xbox – then there might be a better headset out there for you. These are solid on all fronts, but something built specifically for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One may offer something like total...

Creative Sound Blaster Jam

Most of the Bluetooth headphones we test are intended to look cool or eye-catching in some way, sometimes to the (seemingly unintentional) detriment of the audio experience. No one can accuse the budget-friendly Creative Sound Blaster Jam of this...

Marshall Major II

Marshall headphones, from their inception, have defied the gimmicky concept of invoking the look of the iconic Marshall guitar amps. Fashioning headphones and speakers this way could have been a great chance to skimp on actual audio performance in the...

Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless

If you prize its built-in heart-rate monitor over top-notch sound quality, the Jabra Sport Pulse one of the better wireless sports headphones out there, particularly in terms of fit and features.

Customization aside, you don't really need it because these things look great stock, these are some of the best sounding wireless over ear headphones on the market. The $300 price tag is very fair, these outperform the Zik Parrot 2.0's in the sound...

Bowers&Wilkins P7

The Bowers & Wilkins P7 may not the best headphone you can buy in its luxury price range, but it certainly is among the best, with excellent build quality and rich sound that works well with a wide range of music genres and sources.

Sennheiser Momentum (Over-Ear)

Earlier this year we got our first look at Sennheiser's MOMENTUM at CES , a lovely stark looking set of headphones made of metal and leather. Here in the summer of this year we've had our look and listen to the set, and right at the dawn of the...

The NAD isn't head and shoulders above the competition in its price class, but it does sound really good and should be given careful consideration if you're looking for an audiophile-grade headphone that won't break the bank.

Sennheiser G4ME ZERO / GAME ZERO

When it comes to headsets, we are extremely fortunate to have all the options we have, in all shapes and sizes, to fit all different head types, in all different price points. But when you start rising up in price point, there's less room for...

Sennheiser Urbanite

The folks at Sennheiser make some of the finest headphones around. They have for quite a while. But some of the most visible headphones in the world today come from a brand with a big "b" on the eardrums. Do they sound better than Sennheiser's newest...
