AKG K 370 Headphones Review

AKG K 370 Headphones Review

December 14, 2010 by · 17 Comments 

The AKG K 370’s replaced my trusty Altec Lansing Backbeats which, unfortunately died after about a year of service. As many of you know, I demand quite a bit from my headphones… 1) I want durability.. 2) I want controls that make sense and don’t get in the way (if with a microphone) 3) I […]

Monster Beats by Dre Tour Headphones Review

Pain. That’s one word I can use to describe these headphones. Beautiful. That’s another one I could use. However, the main feature of any headphone… sound, well.. that’s a bit more complicated… I first caught a glimpse of these headphones when I watched the movie, ‘The Book of Eli‘.. and noticed that the main character […]

Nixon ‘The Wire’ 8mm headphones review

The Nixon ‘The Wire’ 8mm headphones are not great. They’re not horrible, but they’re not great. I went to the Apple store the other day to see if I could replace my aging Altec Lansing Backbeats and found the Nixons were the cheapest alternative that I hadn’t already tried. They looked nice enough and had […]

The Altec Lansing Backbeat Plus headphones win Chromewalker’s ‘bang for buck’ and ‘longevity’ awards. These bad boys got me through 7 months of wear and tear in my pockets.. this is a record. They’re not even dead, what happened is that I lost one of the ear buds and now I’ve had to use some […]

Ultimate Ears MetroFi 170vi Headphones Review

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the Sennheisers that I’ve reviewed in the past. They sound great, but their overly sticky cable causes many snagging issues and the headphones have been ripped out of my ears one too many times. About a month ago, they finally failed in one of these sudden yanks. So I […]

Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic Review

February 15, 2009 by · 9 Comments 

These headphones are a disappointment. I must be a sucker for Apple marketing material, but I just don’t understand how the following features as stated on the Apple website yield such a different result: Two drivers in each earpiece: Each earpiece contains two separate high-performance drivers — a woofer and a tweeter — resulting in […]

The Quest for the Next Great Bluetooth Headset

April 8, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

I have an Aliph Jawbone right now. It works well, but is quite difficult for me to use with glasses (it regularly falls out of my ear and hangs loosely requiring constant fiddling). In addition, although the sound quality is good when reducing noise, it isn’t as rich or smooth as it could be. For […]
