Audiofly’s latest headphones mask subpar sound behind surreal design

One of our favorite providers of premium in-ear headphones, Audiofly’s first try at an over-ear, the Audiofly AF240, look to offer long-lasting comfort alongside clarity in a premium package. When gloss meets leather and a $250 price tag meets memory-foam cushions will it all be worth it in the end?

Denon’s newest wired in-ear headphones are designed for audiophiles on the go

Generally, when Digital Trends covers Denon products, it’s the company’s A/V receivers, its HEOS multiroom audio systems, or in the case of its most recent announcement last month, both. But the company also makes other audio products, including its new AH-C820, AH-C720, and AH-C620R in-ear headphones, which were announced on Thursday.

While other audio companies are scrambling to remove the wires from their headphones, Denon is keeping the wire, and instead focusing on the sound. Aimed at travelers, professionals, and other people frequently on the go, the new in-ears are aimed at bringing audiophile-quality sound with you, no matter where you’re headed.

Bowers & Wilkins' new P3 Series 2 headphones bring updated sound, refined look

IFA might be all but wrapped up at this point, but that doesn't mean companies are done announcing new products. Bowers & Wilkins is following up on last week's announcement of the P7 Wireless with another update of a well-loved product.

The new and improved P3 Series 2 headphones retain much of what listeners loved about the award-winning P3 by keeping things light and portable. The Series 2 adds a black leather finish that should fit quite well with the rest of the materials used in the crafting of the headphones, including aluminum and sheep leather, which are also found in the company's P7 series. A hard shell carrying case is included to keep the headphones protected while you're on the go.

Phiaton’s touch-controlled BT 460 headphones are smart, sleek, and sound awesome
phiatons touch controlled bt 460 headphones smart sleek sound awesome phiaton feat

Bluetooth headphones are great if you’re on the go and want to enjoy your music sans all those wires getting in the way. But more often than not, playback controls can be awkward and imprecise to use, since you can’t see which buttons you’re pressing while wearing them. That’s why we love that Phiaton decided to use intuitive touch controls on its latest set of wireless cans, the BT 460.

The matte plastic body of the Phiaton BT 460 is neither cheap-looking nor decidedly high-end, though we do think the white version stands out a bit more than the black and grey. The design of the headphones is nearly seamless with its plain and gently contoured shape; only the power button and status LED are visible behind your right ear. At the bottom of the earpiece is a small, snap-open door that conceals the microUSB charging port and aux-in port.
