While headphone technology is advancing, headphone styling is also becoming more important to consumers, because we’re tired of having the choice between just black or white.  Today you can get the aforementioned shades, plus gold, silver, and nearly any colour on the wheel plus skulls, and bling, not to mention UFC or famous rapper partnerships. Enter a cool collaboration between Monster and Adidas that gives you stylish sound with all the audio quality you could want.

Friends, gather ‘round. We’re gonna talk headphones here in what is essentially two different reviews. First up: we’re going to talk about Monster’s iSport earbuds - I’ve got three models to cover: the Strive, the Intensity, and the Victory, all with varying levels of noise isolation. Second on the docket is Monster’s iSport Freedom, a very different beast indeed. All four models are made for listeners who are engaging in a more active lifestyle… and as someone who has developed a passionate hatred for headphones and earphones while working out, I’m bringing a skeptical eye to the table. 

 

I’m ready, Monster. Come at me, bro.

Skullcandy Gaming Headsets Review - They have style but do they have quality?

Skullcandy headphones have been a staple of my gaming life for quite some time now. I’ve been using the Skull Crushers for easily 5 years now. They have always offered good sound and cool design for a decent price. Since they acquired Astro Gaming, it was only a matter of time before Skullcandy made the step to gaming headsets and with the SLYR, the PLYR 2 and the PLYR 1 they are offering good headsets at competitive prices.

Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset + Mixer - Review

Plantronics RIG - full system.jpg

 

 

When researching over-the-ear headphones, the first aspect I always pay attention to is what device(s) it’s designed for, be it PC, smartphones/tablets, or gaming consoles.  I want to make sure first and foremost that the headphones are compatible with the devices I have in mind, but moreover, I want the assurance that they’re also optimized for those same devices.  So, for example, it’s vitally important that over-the-ear headphones for my iPhone have a sturdy headband to keep them firmly in place while listening on-the-go. Conversely, for a PC or gaming headphones, having crystal clear mic audio is definitely a must-have, but I also want to make sure the headphones remain comfortable for long gaming sessions.

 

I was very pleasantly surprised, then, when I realized that the Plantronics RIG stereo Headset + Mixer made my preliminary research easy – as it was designed to be a true all-in-one stereo headset. Not only is the headset created with the comfort and quality needed for intense PC or console gaming, but it is also designed to quickly and easily convert into portable headphones for listening to music on-the-go. As I looked further into the product, I got even more excited because of the included mixer – the system's central component that allows you to seamlessly switch between, or mix, your game and phone audio. Recently, I was lucky enough to get my hands on sample Plantronics RIG unit, and I have to say, it really is as great as it seems.

Review: Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones

Sennheiser already scored a winner with the over-ear Momentum headphones, but now, they’ve slimmed down the profile and slightly changed the design materials to create an on-ear version that are considerably more portable. These won’t have the noise isolation of the bigger model, but the components inside are virtually identical, all but ensuring music will sound great on these.
