Jabra Elite 45h Launched – £90 On-ear headphones with 50 hours battery life

The new Jabra Elite 45h could be the perfect affordable solution for long days in the office and long haul travel. These new on-ear headphones offers 50 hours on just one charge and the ability to get 10 hours of play from just 15-minutes charging. That is 10 hours more battery life than when I reported about the Elite 45h during CES back in January. The compact foldable design is perfect for travel too, and the on-ear design should offer superior comfort for long use compared to in-ear headphones (plus, no other in-ear option offers that battery life).

This includes: Realme Buds Air Neo for £39.99Realme Powerbank for £19.99Realme Watch for £54.99Realme Band for £24.99 I have been sent a few of these, so I will be reviewing them over the next week or so.

Tribit FlyBuds 1 True Wireless Earbuds Review – Incredibly cheap offering good performance for the money

There is no shortage of affordable true wireless earbuds on Amazon nowadays. Generally, I have found most of them to be surprisingly good considering the price. However, it can still be difficult to choose with so many options. Tribit are one of the many companies competing for your money, they have some exceptionally well-reviewed Bluetooth speakers and headphones, so they have a good experience with audio. This appears to be their second generation of earbuds adopting a new symmetric design, a higher IP rating and adding wireless charging while offering a lower RRP of £39.99 and currently available for...

Huawei Freebuds 3i vs Freebuds 3 – Affordable active noise-cancelling earphones with silicon tips

The Huawei Freebuds 3 was a slightly confused pair of earphones offering active noise cancelling but then an open design fit – which is generally the opposite of what you want for noise cancelling. While the design decision was odd, and open fit earphones don't really work in my ears, I did love them, and still use them today. I use them for office work, and when I go for long walks, with some 3rd party silicon ear tops they fit great, and I love the sound quality they produce. New low price Now Huawei has introduced the Freebuds...

Mu6 Space 2 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review – Are they better than the Sony WH-1000XM3 & Bose QC35 II?

I was vaguely familiar with  Mu6 when they first got in touch, originally launching on Indiegogo in early 2019 they were a company that I have never paid much attention too, drowned out by the millions of other people trying to launch products of crown funding. It turns out they are pretty good at making headphones the original Mu6 (now Space 1) were a well-reviewed paired of headphones, and they are back again with the Space 2 upgrading many of the specs with significantly improved active noise cancelling performance (ANC).

FiiO K5 Pro Desktop DAC Review – A multi-input DAC perfect for consoles & PC gaming

Following on from my review of the Creative Sound BlasterX G6, I have also been using the FiiO K5 Pro Desktop DAC as a possible alternative solution to my needs. On my office desk, I have multiple monitors, in the morning I work with music playing from my main PC but then at lunch, I will watch some media on my Nvidia Shield on the left monitor. Previously I used two separate sets of speakers, which was messy, but I had a spare set from my old office, so it was cost-effective. Sadly, one set had started to die;...

Sudio FEM true wireless earphones review with 15% DISCOUNT CODE – TWS earphones that look as good as they sound – Score 80%

Sudio FEM true wireless earphones review with 15% DISCOUNT CODE – TWS earphones that look as good as they sound –

I have featured Sudio four times over the years, and they are back again today with their latest FEM true wireless earphones. Sudio have defined themselves from many other brands by designing audio products that look as good as they sound. Their website includes a lookbook more akin to a fashion brand than audio. Being Swedish, their design philosophy is typically clean and elegant, there are flourishes of bling, with metallic accents on some of their designs, nothing is gaudy. Priced at £119 this is the most expensive pair of TWS earphones Sudio have made, and this places them...

Kygo Life Xenon Bluetooth Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review Score 85%

Kygo Life Xenon Bluetooth Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review

Showing my complete lack of knowledge about modern musicians, I had absolutely no idea who Kygo was until I started writing this review, assuming it was just some random brand I had not heard of. Norwegian DJ and record producer Kygo, famed for his Firestone song, has turned his hand to the hardware side of music, producing a range of headphones, earphones and even a smart speaker with built-in Google Assistant. The headphones range from relatively affordable, to the more premium Pro Line with the active noise cancelling A11/800 which cost €249.00 and now the new Xenon headphones at...

Proze TWS-03 True Wireless Earbuds Review

Proze are another new audio and accessory brand with a pair of true wireless earphones, and another brand to use the imaginative naming convention of TWS  followed by a number. The Proze TWS-03 True Wireless Earphones are the top of the range model they have which sell for £79.95 putting them in a reasonably unique price point of neither being affordable or premium. The  Anker Soundcore Liberty 2 is perhaps the closest in price I can find, and you can pick up the well-reviewed Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 for £20 more. Out of the gate, these are a little...

Another day another true wireless earphones review. This time from Edifier, the audio brand that is well known for their active 2.0 and 2.1 speakers.

DESTEK T1 65H True Wireless Earbuds Review – Surprisingly good Jabra Elite Active 65t & 75t clones

I had given up with cheap earphones from Amazon, it is not so much that they are bad, they are normally pretty good for the price, but quite often the bass isn’t quite there, or at high volumes, there can be some harshness. I mainly use this type of earphone in the gym, so I will listen to them louder than I should, and at higher volumes, you really start to notice the weakness of an earphone. However, when I saw the positive reviews of the DESTEK T1 65H, I thought I would give them a go. £40 is...

1MORE ANC Dual Driver True Wireless Earphones to Launched

The 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones have been one of my favourite earphones over the past couple of years, they sound superb, the fit is perfect and they are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. 1MORE will not be the third company (that I am aware of) that will offer active noise cancelling true wireless earphones. The Huawei Freebuds 3 and the Airpods Pro are the most recent launch but it was the Sony WF-1000XM3 ANC that set the standard. 1MORE confidently think they are better than the Sony offering, they claim that their implementation has...
