Shure SE535 Earphones Review

on Saturday, February 12th, 2011

The Shure SE535 earphones are a study in contrasts between frustration and nirvana. Boy, this wide-open gap in opinion is going to need some explaining. Shure is one of the better known headphone/earphone companies around, so when they announce a new model, it’s news. A few months ago, they introduced the SE535, which replaces theRead More…

Fanny Wang On Ear Headphones Review

on Saturday, February 5th, 2011

In the world of headphones, there are many, many choices that range in price from a few bucks to a price requiring a second mortgage on your house. It’s that wide of a margin. And let’s face it, most mortals wouldn’t dream of spending over a couple hundred dollars to get the sound we wantRead More…

TFT Accoustics TFTA-2100-2V1S and TFTA-2100-3V2B Earphone Review

on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

I have written in previous reviews that I tend to prefer neutrality and accuracy over sound that is enhanced or “colored” in headphones/earphones. That being said, I do enjoy bass when it doesn’t interfere with or overpower the mids or highs, which can so often happen. Some brands accentuate bass to attract a younger crowdRead More…

Earjax Lyrics Earphone Review

on Sunday, December 26th, 2010

When you think of consumer earphones, what companies come to mind? Sony? Monster? Skullcandy? Truth is, there are a LOT of companies out there making earphones for your MP3 player – with many of them producing pretty good products. It’s a huge market, so the choices are in the buyer’s favor. As reviewer, one ofRead More…

MEElectronics M6 Earphones Review

on Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

I’ve mentioned in earlier reviews that I tend to find many earbuds uncomfortable, especially the hard, standard earbuds from Apple.  Although I’ve found a few earphones that are comfortable and sound good, I’m always willing to try out another pair.  When Julie offered the MEElectronics M6 earphones for review, I asked to give them aRead More…

JH Audio JH/13 PRO Earphones Review

on Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Last July was an eventful month for this reviewer. I got to see firsthand how custom earphones are made by craftspeople who are experts in what they do. And I got to take delivery of my own pair of custom Jerry Harvey JH/13 PROs.  But before I delve into this review, a little history isRead More…

Wicked Little Buds Earphones Review

on Saturday, November 13th, 2010

Lately, I have been reviewing some really, really expensive earphones and will continue to do so. I do it mainly because I want to educate people about how much more enjoyment can be had from their music with an investment in quality earphones or headphones. That said, there is a huge market for less expensiveRead More…

Starkey Labs Tunz Duo In-Ear Monitor Review

on Monday, September 20th, 2010

While some earphones/headphones available for the iPhone/iPod/iPad are great, most fall into the pretty good category.  But all of them are light years better than the earbuds that come standard with your device. The difference is that noticeable. This is not a review for you who are still using earbuds, unless you KNOW how awfulRead More…

JHAudio JH|5 Pro Earphones Review

on Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

I have had the opportunity to try many high-end headphones and earbuds over the years; from the Bose QuietComfort 2/3 headphones to Future Sonics’ atrio m5 professional earphones. I have become increasingly finicky and judgmental about which earbuds I use to listen to my music. My current favorites are the Etymotic Research hf5 High-Fidelity earphones;Read More…
