Bose SoundTrue In-Ear Headphones

Bose SoundTrue In-Ear Headphones Review

Introduction

With BOSE, opinions are divided. Most will say their headphones are slightly pricey, slightly too mainstream, and perhaps too much focused on looks rather than performance, and sadly, it would be hard to disprove these claims. With the SoundTrue range, BOSE is very much sticking to its guns, banking on a design that follows along the lines of nearly every other in-ear buds that brandish the logo, namely Freestyle, Sound Sport and Quiet Comfort. What this review sets out to do is look into what, if anything, SoundTrue brings new to the table, and whether or not it’s true to the brand, or to sound in general, as its name suggests.

Shure SE215-K Sound Isolating Headphones Review

Introduction

Whether you’re a professional or audiophile headset user, you’ve probably heard of the Shure company before. It’s one of the world’s largest, most revered microphone manufacturers. Nearly a decade of expertise and experience in personal monitor systems, wireless systems, mixers, conferencing equipment, and phono, have propelled the company at a vantage point. It’s here that the company launched its earphone and headphone lines, and that is the reason the Shure SE215-K earphones had better live up to the expectation.

Shure are targeting professionals for their SE215-K, specifically musicians who need to monitor their on-stage performance, but they’re also passing these earphones off as excellent audio solutions for recreational purposes. So, let’s see if the SE215-K is all it’s cut out to be, in terms of both professional monitoring and personal use.

BlueAnt Pump - Wireless HD Sportbuds

BlueAnt Pump Wireless HD Sportbuds Review

Introduction

It’s not often that an underdog rocks the boat for some of the Big Kahunas in the audio equipment industry, and sure enough, as soon as Apple started retailing BlueAnt headphones, it seems the game has shifted. These waterproof, wireless, dustproof and sweatproof headphones are slowly but surely becoming a household name, even for those who don’t necessarily work out too much.

It’s easy to see why, considering BlueAnt has been awarded the V1 Voice Control Stevie Wonder Award for its built-in coaching, the Good Design Award, as well as many other titles and prizes for audio products released before the Pump headphones. This Australian global communications company claims to ‘orchestrate human connection’, with a headset that’s ‘uncompromisingly rugged’. Those are some mighty big words, especially coming from a company that mainstream audio equipment users had hardly even heard about a year ago, so we thought it’s time we put their Sportbuds to the test.

Sennheiser PMX 686G Sports Earbud Neckband Headset

Sennheiser PMX 686G Sports Earbud Neckband Headset Review

Introduction

Sennheiser recently rounded off its sports line-up with mid-range earbuds acclaimed for their design, stability and quality of sound, the PMX 686G. Promoted mainly for its design and build merits, the headset is ideal for runners and other sportsmen, particularly in rainier climates, as it boasts waterproof and greaseproof capabilities.

The look and feel of the earbuds gets this review off on the right track, even though Apple fans may be disappointed to hear that they were designed for Android devices, and so compatibility levels for iPods and iPhones are low. With this headset, what you see is what you get: a rigid, one-size neckband that some say can be uncomfortable at times, but the quality of the sound delivered balances out this setback splendidly, by all accounts.
