    LG Tone Free True Wireless Earbuds Review

    Ever since the likes of Bragi and Earin introduced us to true wireless earbuds, we’ve seen a deluge of competition from giants like Apple, Samsung, and Jabra to crowdfunded efforts like Skybuds. We’ve gotten to try a handful of them over the past year or so, but none of the products on the market have satisfactorily […]

    The Ora Graphene Headphones Might Be the Future of Audio

    With wireless headphones and premium audio processing both firmly established in the market, it’s been hard to imagine where the personal audio market goes from here. Looks like it’s not just about making them look cooler — a Kickstarter project from a company called Ora is using a new wonder material that could change headphones and […]

    V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless Review

    In November of last year, we heard about three new headphones coming from V-Moda, including the V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless. The Milan-based premium audio firm excels in sound, but exercise buds usually sacrifice audio quality to be lightweight, using tiny and often tinny drivers. Given that they’ve got a reputation to keep up, we figured […]

    Beats Goes for the Gold with Trophy Gold Powerbeats3 Wireless In-Ear Headphones

    The first wave of post-Apple acquisition Beats headphones included the Powerbeats3, the updated version of Beats’ exercise-focused in-ear headphones. They ended up being almost the same as the Powerbeats2, with the addition of Apple’s new W1 chip and fast charging. That wasn’t a bad thing — they retained the same great, surprisingly balanced sound of the […]

    LifeBeam Vi Headphones Are One Tough Personal Trainer

    We’ve seen a lot of fitness tracking devices, and some of them have even managed to work in some personalized training features. But, we might not have seen any built around a single, smart AI personal trainer who can communicate with you even when you’re not wearing the headphones. That changes with Vi, who lives […]

    V-Moda Crossfade Wireless 2 Over-Ear Headphone Review

    Crossfades have been V-Moda’s iconic over-ear headphones and it wasn’t until last year that they released a wireless model. Going wireless was an instant win, delivering high fidelity freedom with a lot of comfort and a lot of battery. Now, the new Crossfade 2s deliver an even more impressive 14+ hour battery, even comfier cushions, […]

    HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Headset Review

    A challenger has arrived! Kingston’s HyperX line has been putting out some quality products for quite some time now and the HyperX Cloud Stinger gaming headset is no exception. During unboxing, I found the packaging of the Cloud Stinger and the color scheme of all black with only a splash of red in the HyperX […]

    Pair of Wireless Headphones Explodes In-Flight, Injuring One Woman

    As we were reminded during the “hoverboard” era and the Galaxy Note 7 saga, lithium-ion batteries are extremely dangerous when not used properly by the companies that build them into their products — and even without a fault, there’s still an element of risk. They’re volatile, and when damaged they can and do explode violently. It’s concerning […]

    Rock the Slopes With These Detachable Helmet Headphones

    Speaker helmets and aftermarket add-ons are nothing new to snowsports, but they’ve never been particularly convenient. In-line remotes and their tiny buttons aren’t the greatest match for snow gloves, and having a separate audio component can be annoying when putting the helmet on or taking it off. If that’s not a ready-made pitch for a […]

    BeatsX Wireless In-Ear Headphones Review

    Beats has been killing it lately. Their Powerbeats3 and Solo3 wireless headphones both earned Chip Chick Picks for being top notch wireless headphones in their respective categories. After a delay, their lightweight BeatsX in-ear headphones are finally here, and we consider them to be a superior alternative to Apple’s AirPods. First of all, kudos to […]

    Audeze iSine10 In-Ear Headphone Review

    These are not Star Wars headphones. But, they may have come from a galaxy far far away. The Audeze iSine10 are a high-fidelity pair of in-ear lightning headphones. Outside of their Millenium-Falcon-esque build, their claim to fame is that they’re the first to include planar magnetics into in-ear headphones. Large 30mm planar magnetic diaphragms are […]

    Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Earbuds Review

    In short order, we’ve been hit with a huge number of true wireless earbuds — wireless earbuds that lack even a cord to connect the two buds. Generally, true wireless earbuds are one of two types. The first are purely for audio, and tend to be smaller and and more stylish (Earin, Skybuds, and the Sol […]

Lit Headphones have been on fire for a year now, selling out of their lavishly handmade crown headphones on the regular. These headphones are no pretenders to the throne, either — depending on the model, the earcups and headband can be […]
