Even H1 Headphones – Review

Headphones, as you’ll have no doubt noticed if you go to an electrical retailer, can cost a truck load of cash. On a recent trip to Currys I spotted a pair for £449. That’s almost as much as most smartphones. Here, for £199.99 from Selfridges (yeah, a bit …

Leophile Eel Wireless Neckband Headphones – Review

The thing with Bluetooth headphones, usually, is that the battery life isn’t all that great. People want a light in-ear heaphone but they also don’t want a hefty battery hanging off their head. Here, that’s solved as the battery equipment is stored in a neckband. This slips around …

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s been a reoccurring theme whenever we review Bluetooth headphones. There’s definitely two types of headphones that I’ve found over the years. The first type will last for ages and they’re usually in-ear, but the sound quality just isn’t that brilliant. …
