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



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



Sony Make Believe Headphones DR-EX12iP Review

The Sony Make Believe DR-EX12iP Earbuds  shine in their crystal clear high-end, treble clarity, but at the expense of an unmistakable bass presence.  The 9mm drivers here, while pretty good at reproducing the musical highs without appearing to back away from the task, the lows, owing to the very small size of these buds, do … Continue reading Sony Make Believe Headphones DR-EX12iP 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



Auvio® Earbuds, Element 3300352 Headphones Review

True to that form are these   Auvio® Earbuds, Element 3300352 Headphones, which I recently paid $13 for these earbuds on sale at Radio Shack (normally $19.99).  They’re designed specifically with a great bass response as a primary objective, and boy, do these have great bass!  Not just boomy bass either.  For the notably small size of the … Continue reading Auvio® Earbuds, Element 3300352 Headphones Review



Auvio® Stereo Earbuds 3300465 Review

Definitely for the novice listener, and not the audiophile.  In this Auvio® earbuds review, I feel guilty about saying that these  Auvio® 3300465 Stereo Earbuds with Carrying Case  are high fidelity.  The treble frequencies are muted and distorted, and the bass is weak, with some of the lowest bass notes in my favorite songs missing altogether.  The mid range … Continue reading Auvio® Stereo Earbuds 3300465 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



Philips SHS3200 Earhook Sports Headphones Review

These Philips SHS3200 Earhook Sports Headphones more resemble earbuds than headphones, and due to the ear hook feature, that effectively attaches the earphone to your ears, these are well-suited for those sports minded folks, who love listening to their tunes on a morning jog or while bench pressing at the gym. In our tests, with the hook in … Continue reading Philips SHS3200 Earhook Sports Headphones Review



Koss Tech 2 Vintage Stereo Headphones Review

We listened to our music with the   Koss Tech 2 Vintage Headphones   for twelve years throughout the late seventies, eighties, and early nineties, and played them on several CD players, mixing boards, receivers, and cassette tape decks. This vintage headphone was our first pair of real stereo earphones, and since they represented such a big step up from any headphones we’d ever … Continue reading Koss Tech 2 Vintage Stereo Headphones Review
