Blue Mo-Fi Review: Great-Sounding Headphones That Aren't Quite Great

Blue Microphones is best known for, uh, microphones. And not just any mics; they specialize in the expensive studio kind, well-regarded forsound and design, not the beaters you used in your high school garage band. But while Blue’s headphones pop, they’re not much for getting around.


Beats Studio Wireless Headphones: Australian Review

Some headphone makers put fashion and and form before function, leaving you with great-looking cans that don’t actually sound that great. These new Beats Studio Wireless headphones combine Bluetooth and noise and despite what you might presume based on the Beats name’s checkered history, they’re actually pretty good.


Sony MDR-1RBT Mk2 Headphones: Australian Review

Sometimes a piece of technology comes along that just hits all its marks perfectly.

50 Cent's SMS Audio Is Building Headphones That Keep Track Of Your Run

50 Cent’s SMS Audio is about to announce a major deal that could help keep it from getting left behind by the newly forged Apple-Beats powerhouse. Sources close to the deal told us that the company will announce a new set of headphones based on Intel’s health monitoring technology today.

The Amazon Fire Phone's Headphones Are What All Cheap Earbuds Should Be

Have you ever met a pair of pack-in headphones you liked? Me neither. That is until I got the ones that came with the Fire Phone. They look a lot like Apple’s (bad) EarPods, but are better in almost every way you would want. All cheap headphones should be at least this great.


A Hoodie Made From Speaker Fabric Won't Muffle Your Headphones

Originally designed for home or recording studio use, over-the-ear headphones somehow became a popular choice for music aficionados on-the-go. We can probably blame Sony’s Walkman for that, but it means that Betabrand’s new Audio Engineer’s Hoodie — which uses speaker fabric on the hood so headphones can be worn over it — isn’t necessarily just for those hiding in an over air conditioned studio all day.


This App Will Make You Perfect Fitting Earbuds From Photos Of Your Ear

Denon AH-C120MA Headphones: Australian Review

Sometimes, you don’t need to pay a lot to get good headphones, if you’re willing to make a few small compromises. The Denon AH-C120MA is lacking in a lot of ways, but it actually sounds pretty impressive for its middling price tag.


Over-Ear Headphones That Wrap Behind Your Head To Preserve Your 'Do

Audio-Technica’s new ATH-S600 headphones don’t break much new ground when it comes to sound quality, but that’s not why consumers might be interested in the new cans. What makes the headphones interesting is their over-ear design with a headband that wraps around the back of the wearer’s head to protect their well-coiffed hairstyle.


Bose FreeStyle Earphones: Australian Review

Bose has never been an especially fashionable brand for headphones. They’re usually serious, finished in blacks and bright silver. The new FreeStyle, though, is a more modern, more stylish take on some high quality earphones from one of the world’s most iconic headphone companies.
