    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 […]

    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 […]

    Moshi Mythro Air Wireless In-Ear Headphones Review

    Moshi is relatively new to audio, but they’ve gotten off to a good start. Their Avanti on-ear headphones combined excellent design with above average audio, and was one of our favorites this year for the price. In September, Moshi announced their first wireless audio products — the Mythro Air and the Vortex Air. These Bluetooth […]

    Beats Powerbeats3 In-Ear Headphones Review

    When Apple made their big iPhone 7 announcement in September, they managed to carve out the smallest sliver of time to introduce three new Beats products — the first set to directly benefit from the Apple’s acquisition of Beats.

    Optoma NuForce BE Sport3 Wireless In-Ear Headphones Review

    Earlier this year, we checked out the Optoma NuForce BE6i wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones and came away impressed with the build quality and the performance of Optoma’s 10 mm dynamic drivers. But, when we think of this kind of wireless in-ear headphones — ones with the buds connected to each other with a cable — we usually […]

    V-Moda Forza In-Ear Headphones Review

    We’re not surprised that V-Moda has stayed away from fitness-focused in-ear headphones for so long. V-Moda tends to emphasize design, materials, and audio quality — things that usually need to be sacrificed to make a good pair of fitness in-ears. Housings need to be lightweight to stay securely and comfortably in ears while running, and usually […]

    V-Moda Introduces Forza Line of Small, Exercise-Friendly In-Ear Headphones

    V-Moda is a company that prides itself on doing high-grade audio. So, it’s not surprising that they’ve been reluctant to get into wireless and exercise products — markets where some audio quality usually gets sacrificed. But, they did a pretty solid job on the wireless Crossfade over-ears, and while the limited edition Zn in-ear monitors still […]

    The Audeze iSine Are Some Seriously High-End Lightning In-Ear Headphones

    Audeze is usually known for the highest quality of audiophile products, which usually stops them from getting too involved in in-ear headphones. That changes next month, when their iSine headphones become available. Not only will the iSine in-ears not be mistaken for anything else with their open-back design, the sound quality should blow away any […]

    Optoma NuForce BE6i Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones Review

    Optoma is not a name well known in the audio world — look on their store, and all you’ll find are DACs and amps, plus a handful of in-ear headphones. So, when our review unit of the NuForce BE6i in-ear headphones came in, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I got was a pair of […]
