There seem to be a veritable plethora of options out in the market when it comes to headphones. There’s the big names out there, of course, and that gives us comfort with an established brand. If you want to go off the beaten path, though, there are some interesting designs to be found. One of the most recent are the Urbanista Miami ANC Headphones.(more…)
This year, I’ve been all about the headphones. This is quite a change from using an inexpensive wired headset from my phone on the laptop for calls, through various ANC Bluetooth headphones (such as this one) and now sort of full circle, with a wired headset that is worlds better than the one I was given at the office.

Their new GraphenEQ headphones look like fairly typical wireless headphones. They have a nice tapered design and spacious ear cups. But when you turn them on you find out what graphene headphones can really do.(more…)
We’ve brought a number of new headphones to your attention lately, and it’s something that I’ve been looking at more closely as well. I use headphones daily (one pair at the gym, and then a wired headset at the office for calls), so I must be thinking about something new. I’m a fan of solar charging, so these new JBL Reflect Eternal cans are definitely a curiousity.(more…)
When you first look at the Meze 99 Classics you’re immediately brought back to the days of rich, wooden stereo cases and delicately filigreed radio screens. The 99s are some of the best looking – and best – headphones we’ve used in a while and wearing them is a surprising treat.(more…)
