Earphones

As earphones become ubiquitous in our daily lives for music on the go, it becomes more important than ever to consider sound quality. Are we getting the best sound for our money? Probably not. Is there better audio available than what we get from our stock ear buds that came free with our smartphones? You [...]

Pump Audio-1

In today's high-end earphone market everyone tries to have a hook or a gimmick to compete against the perceived king of the hill in headphones and earphones. Pump Audio, a UK company and a fairly new comer to the high-end earphone market, decided to take the market's front-runner head on by comparing their earphones to [...]

comply-foamtips

I'm locked in a constant struggle with my earbuds--they just fall out of my ears. I've lost count of how many aftermarket earbuds with all sorts of tips I've tried out over the years. Evidently there are others who struggle with similar issues, because Comply Foam Tips makes a variety of earphone tips for people [...]

Thinksound_Rain2_2

“If the rain comes comes, they run and hide their heads.” When I think of thinksound’s new Rain2 earphones, I always think of the iconic Beatles’ song, “Rain”. I don’t know why, except that the Rain2 earphones serve as a counterpoint to the song—in my head, at least. It means that while the song, “Rain,” [...]

mpow-petrel-2

I've been searching for a good pair of wireless earbuds for a while now. So far, I've tried two pairs out. They both were OK, but neither were too useful. The first thing that caught my eye with the Mpow Petrel Bluetooth earbuds was the wings used to stabilize the earbuds. My wired Bose headphones [...]

moshi-clarus-3

When I'm considering a new pair of earphones, I usually skip the in-ear variety because they seem to always fall out of my ears and I don't like the noise isolation feature that they usually possess. When Moshi Audio approached me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing their Clarus earphones, their ear loop [...]

For me, buying earphones is as tough as buying a new pair of sneakers. When it comes to sneakers, I'm picky about the way they look, the way they fit and how comfortable they are to wear. I'm just as picky about selecting a pair of earphones. Comfort and sound are equally important to me when it comes to choosing [...]

Just because you may be north of the equator, that doesn’t mean you’re more knowledgeable or have better taste in the world of audio. Case in point: Audiofly. These chaps from down under (that would be Australia) have been cranking out reasonable priced, yet highly regarded earphones for a few years. Now Audiofly is reaching [...]

It’s pretty fascinating watching the Chinese headphone and earphone market move upscale in both audio and build quality. There are Chinese earphones that now rival anything else available. However, it’s also not surprising, because many of these Chinese companies have been making earphones for other companies for years. Now, they are flexing that knowledge under [...]

Forte-Impact-Review-01a

Headphones are the type of thing that are very hard to shop for, since there's so much to look into - sound quality, comfort, and price.  I love a bit of bling in my technology and gadgets, so when I saw these Forte Impact earbuds in rose gold, I couldn't resist to review them! Let's take a look. [...]

I’ve reviewed a few really good and affordable earphones from NuForce for The Gadgeteer. NuForce is somewhat of a paradox in the audio world. They make quite good (and quite expensive) home audio gear, yet their personal products have been quite affordable – but still quite good. That’s especially true regarding their earphones and headphones. [...]

DUNU_DN1000_1

As the earphone market has grown substantially over the past few years, its technology has mostly split into two camps – dynamic speakers vs armature speakers. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages. DUNU, a Chinese company who started out making earphones for other companies, make and sell both dynamic and armature models. Their model [...]

I like to have a pair of headphones with me everywhere I go. You never know when you'll need to use them. I've tried out several types of headphones, from buds to in-ear, and one thing that I noticed was the lack of bass in the smaller, more portable headphones. This, coupled with the fact [...]
