TCL SOCL500TWS wireless earbuds hands-on: You get what you pay for

TCL's first true wireless earbuds available in the U.S. have finally landed just ahead of CES 2020. Offering impressive battery life and water resistance at just $80, these earbuds promise a lot of value at a very low price point. But in this market, it takes more than that to impress.

Making a splash in the wireless, noise-canceling headphones space is no easy feat considering the excellent products from Sony, Bose, and others. The B&W PX7 manage to do it with their distinctive blend of top-tier materials and awesome sound. But are they worth $400?

Master and Dynamic MW07 Plus Review: Best wireless sound

Master and Dynamic's MW07 wireless earbuds were a big hit in 2018, but their battery life left something to be desired -- and the competition has only gotten stronger. With tons of new features and nearly triple the battery, the MW07 are a whole new bag. But can they keep up with the crowd?

Beats Powerbeats Pro review: Great design, with a flaw

Beats’ first true wireless earbuds leverage technology from Apple, including the H1 chip inside the AirPods 2, in a larger design that nearly doubles the battery life, and adds sweat- and water-resistance. But connection woes have us pumping the brakes on Beats' latest earbuds.

On the fifth anniversary of its first product, Master and Dynamic is back with a new wireless version of its classic MH40 headphones.

Skullcandy Vert review: Wireless buds for the mountain

Skullcandy Vert review: Wireless buds for the mountain

Wireless headphones and earbuds are rapidly becoming our defacto choice of audio companion thanks to their wire-free convenience. But using their button or touch controls with gloves on is a thankless task. The $80 Skullcandy Vert are the perfect solution to this problem, but not everyone will like how they sound.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II review

The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphone 700 may be the latest and greatest, but don’t count the company’s QC35 II out just yet. At $50 less than Bose’s new flagship, these mainstay cans still make the most sense for most people. We’ll explore just why that is in this review.

Sony WH-XB900N review

Sony WH-XB900N review

Sony’s latest noise-canceling headphones aim to bring big bass and solid noise cancellation for $100 less than the flagship WH-1000XM3. We love their usability and features, but they can’t compete with the premium model, or the impressive class of headphones from similarly priced competitors.

Everyone knows Bose is responsible for impressive innovations that shake up the audio world. With the Frames, Bose is once again digging up fertile new ground in the somewhat stagnant audio genre. But can these audio sunglasses offer enough versatility to make them worth their $200 price tag?

The Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX offer all the gorgeous sound of the much-beloved Sennheiser HD 650, but in a slightly different color, and at a significantly reduced price. If you're after audiophile-grade sound and you're on a budget, these are probably the headphones for you.

Audio-Technica ATH-CKR7TW true wireless headphones review

Like virtually every other headphone maker before it, Audio-Technica has brought its signature audio profile to a pair of true wireless headphones. We’re overall fans of the sound, but a lack of features and some surprising flaws make these pricey new headphones difficult to take home.
