Beyerdynamic Blue BYRD ANC (2nd-Gen) Review: Neckband Earbuds with Robust Sound but Average ANC

Beyerdynamic’s second-generation Blue BYRD in-ear headset is a bit of an odd bird these days (if you forgive the pun). Their styling is a bit retro, yet they offer several advanced features.

For example, moving the battery to the band allows for the use of 10mm dynamic drivers.

Dyson Zone Packs Air Purifying and Noise-Canceling Technology into a Unique Pair of Headphones

When the first images of the Dyson Zone appeared in late March last year, the internet had an absolute field day. Headphones with a detachable mask that served as a personal air purifier? April Fools’ Day had come early! Everyone who saw the photos or read about them had a strong opinion, and it’s understandable why.

True Wireless Earbuds are becoming so common that it’s no longer a question of whether you can find a great pair of TWE that will work for you; it’s what one particular pair does to set itself apart from all other brands and how much they cost that matters now.
