Philips SHQ1000-28 Headphones Review

In short, these Philips SHQ1000-28 ActionFit headpones, in the earbuds style,   are not high fidelity. But they are very durable, sweat proof, waterproof.  Just be sure to use the rubber cups they come with. These buds are well-fitting for sports, comfortable, and not bad sounding. Clearly though, they focused more on the ruggedness that sports … Continue reading Philips SHQ1000-28 Headphones Review



Bose QuietComfort 25 QC25 Headphones Review

The Bose QuietComfort 25 active acoustic noise cancelling headphones are a revised and improved version of the QC15 phones. Shile these likely cost more than most any consumer over-ear headphone, you indeed get what you pay for. Perhaps more even. We sampled these at a nearby Sam’s Club store when they first appeared. We found … Continue reading Bose QuietComfort 25 QC25 Headphones Review



Best Noise Cancelling Headphones: Bose QC35

We suggest the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless active noise cancelling headphones as the best noise cancelling headphones for airplane riders.  They are a yet another revised and improved version of the QC15 earphones, and indeed a step up from the QC25 wired phones.

Philips SHQ3000 Earhook Earbuds Review

Philips did a complete turnaround when they developed these Philips SHQ3000 Action Fit Earhook Sports Headphones. These are so much better than the SHQ1000-28 offering. Unlike some of the other earhook-featuring earbuds we’ve reviewed, these Philips SHQ3000s route the audio cable in a better way.  They use the earhook itself as a router.  So, the cable … Continue reading Philips SHQ3000 Earhook Earbuds Review

Sony MDR EX10LP Earbuds Review

The Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP Earbuds excel in their punchy mid range. But they suffer from weak bass as well as treble response. About the 9mm dome drivers here.  They cut the really highs and really lows. So  what you gain in small design, you lose in richness of sound. But on the bright side, … Continue reading Sony MDR EX10LP Earbuds Review



Apple Headphones Volume Control Gripe

Our one BIG complaint about the Apple Headphones Volume Control as it functions on the various generations of the  iPod Touch, is that the UP and DOWN increments that the volume control keys generate when pressed are too big. In version 5.1 of the Apple firmware (the latest version supported on our Touch from 2010), you only get 16 steps to go … Continue reading Apple Headphones Volume Control Gripe
