Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT wireless headphones review

Audio professionals and musicians may balk at the idea of cutting the cord on studio headphones, but it’s hard to argue with these results. Audio-Technica’s big and bold wireless ATH-M50xBT offer massive battery life, impressive features, and killer sound you can take along with you wherever you roam.
Pioneer HDJ-X5BT-K DJ headphones review

Pioneer HDJ-X5BT-K Review

The Pioneer HDJ-X5BT-K are designed to give budget-conscious DJs two great headphones in one: A pair of wireless over-ears for daily smartphone listening, and a club-worthy pair of cans for wired listening behind the decks. With great sound and clean looks, they’re an enticing option for those who both make and enjoy music.

TaoTronics TT-BH060 review

The TaoTronics TT-BH060 are a value-packed pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones that offer solid sound, exceptional battery life, and a price that almost anyone can afford, making them one of the most compelling pairs out there. If you’re looking for a cheap pair of headphones that are packed with tech, look no further.
focal sphear wireless review feat

Focal Sphear Wireless review

Focal’s Sphear Wireless are a sleek and simple pair of banded Bluetooth earbuds with exceptional sound and an affordable price. With sound and battery life improvements coming to true wireless headphones on the horizon in 2019, the Sphear Wireless rank as some of the only non-true wireless earbuds we’d consider buying right now.
audio technica ath ckr7tw wireless headphones review feat

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.
RHA TrueConnect Review

RHA TrueConnect review

RHA takes all of the best features (and a good portion of the looks) from Apple’s popular AirPods and ups the ante with Bluetooth 5.0 and sweat-proofing, making them among the most compelling true wireless headphones available.
AKG N700NC review

AKG N700NC review

With gorgeous looks, impressive noise reduction, and great sound, AKG’s N700NC are a formidable entry into the wireless noise-canceling headphone race. We pit them up against the best on the market from Bose and Sony to figure out if they can take the top spot.
mobvoi ticpods free review feat

Mobvoi Ticpods Free review

With silicone eartips, water resistance, and a more palatable price tag, Mobvoi’s Ticpods Free are impressive AirPod doppelgangers. But for all the great things they have going for them, there’s one thing that’s still holding them back from shaking the AirPods’ stronghold on the market.
JLab Epic Air Elite review

JLab Epic Air Elite review

They may not sport a new look, but JLab’s Epic Air Elite true wireless earbuds have worked out prior kinks to stay better connected, all while holding firm, playing loud, and offering better battery life. Our JLab Epic Air Elite review gave us reason to like the corrective changes that make them better than their predecessors.
Phiaton Bolt BT 700 review

Phiaton Bolt BT 700 review

With a simple design, five hours of battery life, and a charging case that offers a built-in Bluetooth speaker, the Phiaton Bolt BT 700 are a great pair of true wireless earbuds at an extremely palatable price. If you’re in the market for a swiss army knife of sound, they may be just the ticket.
google pixel usb c earbuds review buds 1

Google Pixel USB-C earbuds review

Google’s follow-up to its wireless Pixel Buds are the wired Google Pixel USB-C earbuds. It’s the simpler route, but the earbuds are still smart (you can access Google Assistant) they deliver good sound, you can hear your notifications, and – best of all -- they’re affordable.
lg tone platinum se hbs 1120 review 16

LG Tone Platinum SE review

The latest in LG’s Tone wireless headphones series, the new Tone Platinum SE, offer some impressive audio performance and Google Assistant access, but the real prize here is the 13-hour battery.
Jabra Elite Active 65t review

Jabra Elite Active 65t review: Spring for this upgrade

Our favorite fully wireless headphones have gained a small but hyper-usable upgrade, adding excellent sweat-proofing for a small price bump. But are Jabra’s new Elite Active 65t in-ears worth the dough, or are the originals good enough for all but the most hardcore workout enthusiasts?
panasonic rp hd605n review hero

Panasonic RP-HD605N headphones review

The name might be a mouthful, but Panasonic’s new noise-canceling headphones offer some of the best value in the segment. With cool features, great battery life, and shockingly great sound, here’s why Panasonic’s RP-HD605N compete with the major players from Sony and Bose at a lower price.

Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones review

Sony took its already outstanding 1000X wireless, noise-canceling headphones and somehow made them even better. With best-in-class noise-canceling, stellar audio quality, unreal battery life and quick-charging, and clever and useful features, these classy cans are the full package.
1More Triple Driver Over-ear headphones

1More Triple Driver over-ear headphones review

1More has taken its penchant for multiple drivers into the big leagues with the Triple Driver Over-ear headphones, which offer stylized design and an equally stylized sound signature. Add in plenty of comfort and the Chinese brand has got another winner on its hands.
master and dynamic mw07 review feat

Master and Dynamic MW07 True Wireless In-Ear Headphones Review

Premium audio brand Master and Dynamic has taken aim at the more elegant (and higher-rolling) side of the true wireless headphone market with its new MW07 model, designed for those who are after gorgeous looks and the best possible sound. Are they worth the dough, or should you stick to more established options?
bowers and wilkins px headphones review hero 4

Bowers and Wilkins PX review

Noise cancellation doesn’t have to ruin sound quality, and Bowers and Wilkins proves it with the PX headphones. In our PX review we matched the company’s first noise-canceling cans against the top options from Bose and Sony to see if they slay the competition, or whether you should save a few bucks to cop a pair of less-stylish headphones.
Optoma NuForce BE Free5 review

Optoma NuForce BE Free5 review

Our Optoma NuForce BE Free5 review proves that underdogs can punch above their weight, as these true wireless earbuds stuck to our ears and kept the tunes nestled inside. It’s not all gravy here, though, and you’ll want to check out the fine print before deciding to bring these $100 headphones home.
shure kse1200 electrostatic earphone system review 12 feat

Shure KSE1200 Electrostatic Earphone System review

Shure’s astronomically priced KSE1500 electrostatic earbuds get a reboot of sorts in the KSE1200, which drop the digital-to-analog converter, but keep all the lovely sound for a lot less green. We go hands-on to see if the big price cut is enough to make these incredible-sounding earbuds worth the still-spendy splurge.
Even H3 Wireless Review

Even H3 Wireless Hands-On Review

The Even H3 Wireless offer similar looks and the same custom “audio fingerprint” tuning as their slightly larger predecessor, but they aren’t without their own special quirks when it comes to day to day usability. Here’s how they compare to the Even H2 and other custom-tuned headphones.
Bose SoundSport Free

Bose SoundSport Free true wireless headphones review

As early pioneers in the world of noise-canceling and digital signal processing, Bose has long been at the forefront of new audio technology. In our review of the SoundSport Free -- the company's first fully wireless in-ears -- we discover how Bose's latest tech stacks up against top-tier offerings from the likes of Apple and Jabra.
Monoprice True Wireless Earphones review

Monoprice True Wireless review

Fully wireless earbuds are popping up left and right, but finding a decent pair on the cheap isn't easy. We checked out the $50 Monoprice True Wireless Earphones, and while they're hardly spectacular, they're comfortable, reliable, and -- best of all -- affordable.
Sony Xperia Ear Duo Review

Sony Xperia Ear Duo True Wireless Earbuds Review

Headphones usually cut the wearer off from the world, which is often the desired effect. However, there are times this isn’t wanted, or even very safe to do, and that’s where the Sony Xperia Ear Duo comes in. They still fill your life with music, but won’t stop you from hearing conversations, or a car coming as you cross the road. This is what they’re like to own.
Sennheiser CX Sport review

Sennheiser CX Sport review

We’ve spent a lot of time writing glowing reviews about Sennheiser tech. The company’s latest effort – representing its first foray into the workout world – is the CX Sport, wireless in-ear headphones with a slick, modern look. We tested them out to see if they’re worth pulling out of the crowd.
sony wf sp700n review btwleb hero2

Sony WF-SP700N wireless headphones review

With excellent bass and a very comfortable fit, Sony’s WF-SP700N distinguish themselves from many fully wireless in-ear headphones, but do they have what it takes to compete with our top picks? In our WF-SP700N review, we pit Sony’s compact headphones against industry leaders to see how they stack up.
OnePlus Bullets

OnePlus Bullets Wireless headphones hands-on review

OnePlus is known for making smartphones, not headphones; but it has released a set of wireless in-ear ‘phones called Bullets Wireless, which adhere to its principles of delivering low-cost, high quality products. Are these $70 headphones worth buying, or should OnePlus stick to smartphones? We find out in our hands-on review.
Plantronics BackBeat GO 600

Plantronics BackBeat GO 600 review

We were neither impressed nor inspired by the adolescent aesthetic of Plantronics’ BackBeat Go 600 wireless headphones. After spending some quality time with them, however, we came away with an appreciation for their comfortable cups, lightweight design and smoothly balanced sound.
RHA MA650 Wireless review

RHA MA650 Wireless review

Last year, we thought the RHA MA750 Wireless headphones lacked balance and prioritized design over performance. After spending some time with the cheaper MA650 Wireless, we’re happy to report that those issues have largely disappeared, resulting in an impressive package that blends comfort with clarity.

Audio-Technica ATH-ADX5000 Air Dynamic headphone review

Brainwavz B400 review

Can you really buy a pair of high-performance, balanced armature headphones for less than $200? The Brainwavz B400s really deliver, and cost considerably less than you’d expect.
