The last time I flew to Israel, I had a choice. I could enjoy the quiet provided by my wireless noise-canceling headphones, or I could use United’s crappy wired earphones and watch the onboard entertainment. The new RHA Wireless Flight Adapter makes that choice a thing of the past by letting you cut the cord to your airline entertainment system.
Some time ago, Tejas was sent a pair of $20 Bluetooth wireless over-the-ear headphones. During a conversation with the Gear Diary team, he raised the question of how they might stand up to far more expensive headphones. It was a good question. So… we got the New Jersey members of the team together to find out.
I own several pair of true wireless headphones. The least expensive of the are more than $150. I have avoided the inexpensive offerings coming to market but when iFrogz offered a chance to check out their sub-$60 iFrogz AIRTIME true wireless earbuds, I figured I would check them out. I have to admit; I’m rather impressed.
The Jabra Elite 85h are the most well rounded Bluetooth headphones I’ve ever used; checking the box on almost every category including sound quality, active noise canceling, clear phone calls, great battery life, intuitive controls, and water resistance. When paired with Jabra’s companion smartphone app, I’m not sure any other Bluetooth headphones can compete. The Elite 85h retail for $299.99.
When Raina got a job that required her to commute to the city I bought her a pair of AirPods. She loves them; I’m not a fan. I don’t like their fit, and I think they sound like crap. The RHA TrueConnect True Wireless Earbuds have the same design but, unlike the AirPods, I’m a fan!
With the summer in full swing, chances are you’ll be traveling, working, exercising, or just somewhere listening to audio. Why not get yourself some new headphones from Master & Dynamic?
A brand that I knew absolutely nothing about prior to receiving their products to check out on a whim have really convinced me that sometimes it’s not the name branded on the device, but the actual items themselves After testing them for the last month, Cleer’s headphones and Bluetooth speaker have left quite the impression on me.
With the NBA season now over, Kevin Durant is announcing a partnership with a New York team that doesn’t play at the Garden but knows what the people like — good audio.
While I’m no real audiophile, when it comes to quality listening, I will never shy away from a good set of earphones. While I’m partial to Bluetooth wireless types, I’ll truthfully say being tethered to your device will give you better quality every time. So if you’re looking for that, SIMGOT’s EM-2 Hi-Res IEM Earphones are just that.
So here’s the thing: Yes I have AirPods, and yes they fit in my ear and I enjoy them. But the Skullcandy Indy Bluetooth truly wireless earbuds are in every way a more pleasant listening experience, for half the price.
The Melomania 1 by Cambridge Audio may set the bar high when it comes to truly wireless earbuds, and with a modest price-tag, these honestly may be the wire-free winner and a sought after replacement to those Q-Tip earbuds you’ve been using. Cambridge Audio’s first venture into the truly wireless earphone market starts with a bang, as the company released their MeloMania 1. Made of flexible graphene in dual 5.8mm…
MAS Audio Science brings us the X5h on-ear headphones designed to deliver audiophile-class sound quality. With a 5Hz to 50Hz frequency response, the Japan Audio Society awarded a Hi-Res Audio Headphone Certification to the X5h. The X5h is also compatible with MAS’s XX Bluetooth Cable, which takes the X5h from wired to wireless with a switch of a cable.
For a company to claim that their headphones have advanced audio quality is one thing, but when they throw our the term “HDR sound,” you might be more interested in checking them out. I was sent a pair of Origem HS-3 Bluetooth headphones, and the question I have is: Should you believe the hype?
We are huge fans of Master & Dynamic here, and how could we not be? Their headphones are extremely well made, and they produce excellent sound. If you’ve been looking for a great pair of wired cans, now is the time to check out their MH40 Over-Ear Headphones, as they are on sale for $199 from $249 for Memorial Day.
Some months ago, I received a pair of the Master and Dynamic MW60 over-the-ear wireless headphones. Since they arrived, they have become my go-to headphones. Now the company has announced their first headphones with active noise cancellation, the MW65 over-the-ear headphones. What do I think about them? Put simply, we are giving them an Editor’s Choice award.
Mother’s Day is coming, and we have a great selection of items for mom that go well beyond the typical flowers, plants, and chocolates. So if you are looking for something different, check out these techy yet thoughtful gifts!
I’ve impressed with the way wireless headphones with active noise cancellation have evolved. Many now offer amazing sound, great battery life, and effective ANC. And many cost $300 or more. Not the TaoTronics Hybrid Active Noise cancellation though. They cost under $100. But are they any good? That was my question as I unboxed the review sample.
The new Edifier W860NB over-the-ear headphones are my new favorite for commuting, by far. They feature Bluetooth 4.1, Active Noise Cancellation, aptX, NFC, and smart touch controls on the side of the right ear cup. These fashionable black headphones are comfortable, easy to use, and last a seriously long time before needing to be recharged.
Designed to be the world’s first UC-certified truly wireless earbuds, the Jabra Evolve 65t takes everything I loved about the Jabra Elite 65t, and made them that much better for working professionals.
One of the best sets of wireless headphones to come out of CES this year was the Master & Dynamic MW07 True Wireless Earphones, which Greg recently reviewed. If you’re ready to put away winter’s darker colors, enjoy fabulous sounding audio, and to celebrate the cherry blossom festivals occurring worldwide, the new MW07 cherry blossom special edition should do the trick.
I’ve long been a fan of JBL’s headphones. They’re well priced, sound great and offer the features many of us most want. The JBL LIVE 650BTNC is no exception. For under $200 you get excellent sound, effective noise cancellation, and access to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. I think they’re great; you will too.
