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.

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.

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.

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.
