At first glance, a pair of Glow headphones might seem like gimmicky glow-in-the-dark earbuds that are designed to get your attention and not much else. But look a little closer and you'll find something a whole lot more interesting: Glow purports to be the "world's first" pair of smart headphones ...

Since its introduction in 2013, Sennheiser's Momentum line headphones have added not only new color options, but on-ear and in-ear models, too. During that time, I've been quite impressed by the cans and their clear and balanced sound. At CES, wireless versions of the over-ear and on-ear gadgets m...

It might sound odd that a guitar maker is getting into fitness headphones, however Gibson falls under the same corporate umbrella as Philips, Onkyo and other personal audio brands. That being said, it's still a bit strange to see the iconic guitar brand stamped on a pair of on-ears. I was curious ...

Sennheiser introduced its Momentum cans back in 2012, and then tacked on an on-ear option about a year later. Both of those are quite capable headphones, but wireless is all the rage these days, so to keep pace with the competition, the company is cutting the cord. Here at CES 2015, Sennheiser is ...

Last year, when 50 Cent's SMS Audio released a line of Star Wars-themed headphones, it was something for the fans. This year, 50's riding on some good timing. With the movie trailer for The Force Awakens still lingering in many people's retinas, SMS Audio is launching a second line of on-ear cans ...

Eleven months ago an audacious Kickstarter campaign promised a sports headphone like nothing we'd ever seen before. Bragi's spec sheet for "The Dash" read like a ridiculous wish list. There was touch control, two separate ear buds (that connect to each other wirelessly, as well as to your phone), ...

Gibson, a company best known for its guitars, is diving into fitness audio, and it's tapped an Olympic gold medalist to lend a hand. That's right, the company's Trainer headphones were designed with the help of the world's fastest man: Usain Bolt. If you'll recall, Bolt has endorsed products from ...

Parrot's Zik 2.0 noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones may not be ideal for workouts, but fans may want to give the new Zik Sport a spin to get a similar experience. Granted, these are actually in-ears instead of the earcup type, but Parrot and Philippe Starck still managed to tuck in eight microph...

Avegant's Glyph headset has been long in the making, but it finally looks to be ready for action... well, almost. The unique mash-up of headphone and wearable display is now poised to ship in fall 2015 for $599, or $499 if you pre-order before January 15th. That's both a long time to wait and more...

Some of the best headphones I listened to this year came from a car audio company. It's true. When I hear the name Alpine, I think of two things: the car stereos and the brewery in southern California. Back in October, the tech-focused Alpine announced its $300 over-ear cans with so-called Full Fr...

You probably didn't shed too many tears when Apple yanked Bose products from its stores, but less variety in audio gear is rarely a good thing. It sounds like the two companies can't stay mad at each other for very long, however -- a source for 9to5Mac has leaked retail data that reportedly shows ...

Chances are when you need some funky tunes to keep you sane through the workday (or to drown out the loudmouth talking on his smartphone next to you), you're grabbing the nearest pair of headphones. Whether they're earbuds or cans, there's as many different opinions as there are styles. What are y...

Music is a social experience. Headphones -- by their very nature -- are not. Except the team behind the Wearhaus Arc you see above never got that memo. If you think these look familiar, that's because I wrote Wearhaus an open letter back in May. I received the press release about the Arc headphone...

If you're into drones and wireless audio, then you'll probably agree that Parrot is the best thing out of France since Daft Punk. Personally, I've been most impressed with the company's wireless headphones, the Zik. In fact, I've been a regular user since it came out about two years ago. Even toda...

Bose might have settled its noise-cancellation lawsuit against Beats out of court, but the two are clearly far from putting the past behind them. Apple (Beats' new owner) has pulled all Bose headphones and speakers from its online store and several brick-and-mortar ones, according to 9to5mac, desp...

Alpine is a name that usually comes up when discussing which new audio wares to install in your car, but the company is diving into headphones, too. Its first set of cans certainly look the part with high-end aesthetics, and they boast Full Frequency Immersion tech that's meant to simulate the fee...
