Sony MDR-7509HD Studio Monitor Professional Headphones Review

The Sony MDR 7509HD studio monitor professional headphones  worked very well for the year that we owned them, and in that time, we played them with many CD players, televisions, iPods, and headphone amps. Found them to be pretty fair audio devices in several respects. The MDR-7509HDs appear similar to the MDR-V500 and 7506, units, also by Sony, tested previously, and reviewed elsewhere in … Continue reading Sony MDR-7509HD Studio Monitor Professional Headphones Review



Bose QuietComfort 35 QC35 Wireless Headphones Review

The Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless active acoustic noise cancelling headphones are a yet another revised and improved version of the QC15 phones, and indeed a step up from the QC25 wired phones of a year or two past.  While these cost even more than practically any other consumer grade around-ear headphone, you’ll get your money’s worth in the QC35s.  We played … Continue reading Bose QuietComfort 35 QC35 Wireless Headphones Review



Bose QuietComfort 25 QC25 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones Review

The Bose QuietComfort 25 active acoustic noise cancelling headphones are a revised and improved version of the QC15 phones, and while these likely cost more than practically any other consumer grade around-ear headphone, you’ll get what you pay for in the QC25s.  We sampled these at a nearby Sam’s Club store, and found their music reproduction quite convincing with … Continue reading Bose QuietComfort 25 QC25 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones Review



Skullcandy Supreme Sound Fix Mic3 S3FXDM-209 Earbuds Review

We finally found a set of spectacular-sounding in ear earphones that equal or perhaps even surpass the Apple stock iPod / iPhone / iPad earbuds; that being the Skullcandy Supreme Sound Fix Mic3 S3FXDM-209 Earbuds.  At roughly $40 per copy, these earphones cost over double what we had been used to paying, for what we thought were decent earphones.  Hard to be comfortable with … Continue reading Skullcandy Supreme Sound Fix Mic3 S3FXDM-209 Earbuds Review



Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones Review

While the Bose QuietComfort 15 acoustic noise cancelling headphones likely cost more than practically any other consumer grade over-ear headphone, you’ll get what you pay for.  We sampled these recently at a local Sam’s Club warehouse, and found their music reproduction highly realistic with rich-but-not-boomy bass, flowing mid range, and delicate yet assertive highs.  Additionally of … Continue reading Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones Review



iWorld Earbuds, Sonic Series, with Mic Review

We examine the iWorld Sonic Earbuds with Microphone in this iWorld earbuds review.  Once again, an offering like this has dubbed iWorld as a provider of highly affordable, decent over all quality accessory products for the iPhone/iPad and MP3 player markets.  Many consider iWorld buds and earphones an acceptable alternative to the much more pricey, yet generally better performing offerings … Continue reading iWorld Earbuds, Sonic Series, with Mic Review



Stereo Headphones Earphones Earbuds Reviews

The list of   stereo headphone reviews   below details our personal experiences with each of these headphones and ear buds. The quest for decent-sounding headphones at decent prices has led to many dead-ends and wasted dollars unfortunately. We’ve spent a lot for a little for example, when we bought a set of needlessly extravagant Grado phones, and a little for a … Continue reading Stereo Headphones Earphones Earbuds Reviews

Sennheiser HD-650 Headphones Review

I’ve owned the Sennheiser HD-650 Headphones  for several years now. In that time, I’ve used them with various CD players, iPods, iPads, headphone amps, and stereo receivers. Impressions follow in this review. These dynamic headphones highly impressed me with their notably full response. There’s no part of the audio frequency spectrum that this audio head-gear fails to … Continue reading Sennheiser HD-650 Headphones Review



Philips SHQ1000-28 Waterproof In-Ear Sports Headphones Review

In short, these Philips In-Ear Sports Headphones, in the earbuds style,   are not high fidelity, But they are very durable, sweat proof, waterproof (as long as you leave the rubber cups that cover the drivers in place), well-fitting, designed for sports applications, comfortable, and not bad sounding.  Clearly however, Philips focused more on the ruggedness … Continue reading Philips SHQ1000-28 Waterproof In-Ear Sports Headphones Review
