Sony XBA-4IP

Sony's audiophile-grade XBA-4 in-ear headphones deliver highly refined sound, with potent bass, airy treble, and excellent noise-isolating performance.

Bose SIE2I Sport

While they're no bargain, the Bose SEI2 and SEI2i have an appealing, sweat-resistant design, are very comfortable to wear, and offer decent sound.

Bowers&Wilkins C5

While the Secure Loop design may not be a perfect fit for every ear, the Bowers & Wilkins C5s are among the best-sounding earphones in their sub-$200 price class.

Klipsch Image S4

Auditioning Klipsch’s Image S4i earbuds was an absolute thrill. They revealed incredibly subtle elements of recordings we’d never picked up before, ranging from crowd comments on live recordings to discovering there are two Pauls and no Johns on...

Velodyne vQuiet

Utilizing the same exact design language as other recent Velodyne headphones, one that flaunts an inverted teardrop design, which comes from the brain of international artist and Velodyne President, Martha Hall, we wouldn't necessarily proclaim it to...

JVC HA-S400

At around $26 online, JVC's HA-S400 Nanotubes are among the better on-ear headphones for the money.

Focal Spirit ONE

Focal may be new to the headphone market, but its Spirit One is an auspicious debut with the look, feel, and sound of a winner.

AKG K551

If there’s any modestly bright spot in K551, it’s the three-button remote, which is the only part that works as expected. It’s basically identical to the latest Apple remotes in functionality, button, and microphone performance, with the mic hole...

Beats SOLO HD

The Beats Solo by Dr. Dre Headphones from Monster offer a killer, travel-friendly design that's sure to turn heads, but the audio quality fails to live up to the price tag.

Beats Executive

The Beats by Dr. Dre Executive noise-canceling headphones have an appealing design, strong features, and good sound, but they don't quite measure up to the Bose QuietComfort 15 noise-canceling headphones.

AKG K 495NC

If you demand near-absolute silence from your noise-canceling headphones, these are the ones for you. The AKG K495 NCs get closer to dead silence than any other pair I tried.

Stax SRS-4170

For a long time prior to the recent headphone revival, Stax was the headphone at the top of the heap. While dynamic full-range headphones have made dramatic leaps in sound quality (and price), if you are limited to headphone systems priced under...

Sennheiser RS 220

The Sennheiser RS 220 is one of the best-sounding wireless headphones on the market, but its super sonics don't offset its ambitious price tag when other models in the same line offer similar performance for less.

Shure SRH940

If you’re an audiophile looking for professional-quality headphones, try the SRH940s before spending much, much more on the competition. These are incredible headphones at an incredible price.

Sennheiser HD 558

The no-frills Sennheiser HD 558 is easily one of the best-sounding headphone pairs available in its under-$200 price range, but it isn't designed for easy use with mobile devices or computers.

AKG K 550

I get to play with a lot of neat stuff as a Technoodling reviewer. The K550 earns a spot on the list of review items that I wish I didn’t have to send back. It’s well built, it’s classy, it’s good looking, and most importantly it sounds great. Yes...

Sony MDR7506 Professional Headphones

You don't have to spend a lot to get great headphones. We tested six full-size models that each cost less than $100 (one of them significantly less), and we came away impressed by what you can get.

Soundmagic (or SoundMAGIC, as they write it) is one of the older Chinese headphone brands that's available on the international market – and one that I shamefully neglected to review for way too long.
