Motorola H680 - headset

With so many headsets on the market, it is often difficult to find anything different, other than design. In this case, the design will appeal to anyone, male or female, who wants to get away from the tired old black or grey headset. Equally, if the...

Labtech 980232-0403 Stereo Headset with Microphone

I've been using this headset for two years to make phone calls with my computer. They are fantastic, with clear sound and durable quality. They are lightweight enough so I can tuck them away into my laptop case and use while on the road.

Sony MDR DS1000

1) bad... bad... bad... felt bad about giving them away, bad headphones uh Sony. do it right or don't do it. 2) Decent little headphone amp. Not great, but worth $100 for sure. Key points: Buy another set of headphones (sony mdr-v600s are a great set...

JVC HA-F130 Gumy

I only need earbuds occasionally so I keep these in my pocket for when I need them. They are constantly falling apart. Usually the grey grills are what fall off and/or the speakers fall out. Most of the time I find the grills in my pocket and super...

Ultrasone ICANS-NAOS

I purchased these in 2009 to be used with iPods and laptops. I paid $43 at a deep discount. I was at that time totally underwhelmed - flat and unexciting but highly portable, they languished in a side pocket of my backpack. In the past year, I have...

Cygnett CY-3-P Groove Platinum

As a budget pair of earbuds with excellent sound, the Bassbudz are an excellent choice for fans of truly powerful bass.

Iqua BHS-701

The signal sometimes distorts when the reception is iffy, IDK if this is due to bad reception or the phone, BUT I do know that signal is directly related to YOUR INTERFERENCE!!! Even though the signal should be locked on when you pair it, that doesn't...

Ultrasone Proline 750

It was high time Audioholics picked up the ball and did some headphone reviews, so we contacted a few manufacturers and selected some products based on price and specifications that we thought would represent a more mainstream target for...

Sony Ericsson HBH-PV770

Sony Ericsson’s HBH-PV770 is certainly stylish and compact, but the lack of volume controls defeats the purpose of a wireless headset.

Samsung D520 Bluetooth

Without a doubt, the best entry level mobile phone on the market. Well priced, a solid features list and an excellent design make the D520 look and feel like a much more expensive handset.

Philips SHD8900

An elasticated inner headband automatically adjusts to fit any size head and is supremely comfortable. Similarly, the actual ear padding is large enough to cover the entire ear and is made of a soft cloth that won't sweat

Magnavox HL-150

I don't treat anything nice. They have taken a beating and I'm surprised they still work. The base is okay. There are models out there that have better base but when tinnitus starts to set in... hey, they're just right.

Panasonic RP-HT 65

These headphones have good overall sound quality, but the best features are the fully adjusting headband and the volume control on the cord. The angled plug is OK if you need it, but not a big selling feature for me.

Philips SBCHP800

I've used these headphones for the past three years and not even once have I run into any problems with the sound or the wire or anything related to that. The headphones simply rock, I love the sound, I love the way they fit on my head, I just love them.

Plantronics Audio 325

How, you might ask, could a set of headphones break a computer's sound system? Well, the little metal tip on the connector (the part with a notch in it) broke off while the plug was in my computer's headphone jack. I pulled the plug out one day, and...

earBuddy Case for iPod & other earphones Colour BLACK

It does the job even though the zipper is a bit "sticky" as one reviewer said - nevertheless, a very handy item if you're tired of your headphones winding up in a tangle in your purse!

Sony MDR SA3000

Bought this to replace my old sony mdr-sa1000 which were great also but this is much better. I listen to a wide variety of music, many genres (this is 2014 by the way) and I have yet to favor one genre over the other when listening thru these...

The JVC Gumy Air earphones are a reasonable choice for users on a tight budget who want to replace the stock earbuds that come with MP3 players--but only if they fit properly.

Able Planet NC1000CH Clear Harmony

The Clear Harmony holds its own against the competition. But without a price incentive, few users will risk choosing an unknown brand over an established one.

Skullcandy G.I. (S5501425)

Cool looking - broke after one year's use at my desk. I'm an accountant. Nothing should ever break at my desk that is this expensive. Will never again buy Skullcandy. A lot of pressure is exerted on pieces that should be metal but were constructed of...

LG HBM-770

Purchased it for my wife's cell phone. She has had no complaints except says although it is lightweight it fits loosely around the ear.

Philips SHM6100

I've been using mine for years. Good sound for the price I paid at the time - $10. Philips must have stopped making them. CnergyVentures' price of over $30 is ridiculous. You can get them for $10 if you shop around.

Coby Cve91blk Isolation Stereo Earphones With Volume Control (black)

I bought these earphones primarily because they have a volume control, thought that might be useful. I instantly found the sound on these earphones to be VERY poor; the sound was muddy/muffled and the base was muted. I tried these earphones on...
