KitSound Immerse Active Noise Cancelling Earphones – Review

Last time I went to the airport, I was properly obsessed with some big over-ear headphones which had noise cancelling technology built in. I put them on, pressed the switch on the side and – instantly – the noise of the airport vanished. It’s all down to something …

Leophile Eel Bluetooth headphones now available in the UK too

Remember the Leophile Eel headphones we reviewed? I love the things. Bluetooth headphones that actually work. They’re comfortable, waterproof and stay in your ears properly. The sound isn’t bad either. I still wear them daily. Here’s me wearing them at the beach this morning.. Yes, that was a …

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 …

Headphones explode on user mid-flight

Using a battery powered device on a flight? It’s not just phones you need to be concerned with. In Australia authorities are now issuing warnings for powered headphones​. It comes after a passenger on a Beijing to Melbourne flight suffered burns and blisters as her headphones exploded mid-flight. …

UMI-BTA8 Bluetooth Runner Earbuds – Review

The people from UMI have sent us these UMI-BTA8 Bluetooth in-ear headphones. They’re designed to be used if you’re out running or at the gym, but you can wear them if you’re sat on the sofa eating crisps too I guess 🙂 First up, I should perhaps mention …

aLLreLi F5 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

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. …

HTC 10 evo announced

A brand new waterproof phone without a 3.5mm headset? No, it’s not that one. This is a new handset from HTC, although I should call it new-ish because it has already been on sale in the USA as the HTC Bolt exclusively on Sprint. The phone arrives with …

August Retro EP634 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

I’m going to completely give away the whole upshot of this review in the first paragraph for you now. Sure, you can always skip along to the bottom of the most reviews, but I’m going to serve it up on a platter right here in paragraph one. OK. …

Aukey Wireless Review: Enough to get you going

Bluetooth headphones are now all of a sudden a big deal. The world has awoken and realised that they don’t have to plug their ear buds into a headphone jack to listen to their tunes. All because Apple decides to get rid of it?! Once the reserved for …

Mpow Thor Foldable Bluetooth Headphones – Review

If you’re after some “proper” over-ear headphones with noise cancelling tech, these could be on your shopping list. First though, perhaps the biggest plus point for me is the price – just £18.89 on Amazon as I type, which is really rather good. The headphones have the usual …

The hidden iPhone 7 3.5mm audio port – How to find it

It’s now time for another article about someone doing something stupid to a brand new iPhone 7. They’re hoping that they’ll get enough YouTube clicks so that they can get enough revenue to replace the phone that they’re just about to break. I know… this whole internet thing …

Lightning connected headphones from JBL appear

Well, these have apparently already sold out. Not only that, but because they interface with an iPhone 7 and the Lightning connector, they cost £169.99. That’s a lot. They are really rather good, and include adaptive noise cancellation plus top-quality sound with no need for any batteries because …

So, you want to listen to music AND charge your iPhone 7?

I pointed it out after the announcement but, if I’m being honest, it’s not going to be a massive deal-breaker for most iPhone owners. See, I can understand to some degree because Apple give you just a single USB-C port in the MacBook Pro. It looks neat, it …

iClever BoostRun BTH06 Bluetooth Headphones – Review

Perhaps it’s just me. I’m not sure, but I’ve reviewed quite a number of Bluetooth headphones over my time and they usually fall into two distinct categories. Category one is usually the sort that go flat after just an hour, but the sound and the bass response is …
