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).

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...

The best Bluetooth active noise-cancelling headphones to look out for on Black Friday 2019

November is finally here, and that means Black Friday is not far away.

RevoNext QT5 Earphone Review – Affordable dual driver earphones with detachable cable and Bluetooth adaptor.

It has been a long time since I reviewed any wired earphones, with the trend leaning towards Bluetooth. However, a lot of people still love wired earphones, they technically offer superior audio performance, require no charging, there are less things to go wrong, and they are cheaper than their wireless counterparts. But what if you could have both? The RevoNext QT5 gives you the option to switch between wired and Bluetooth, while at the same time offering a pair of earphones well into the affordable category, with prices starting at £22.98. These earphones do that by using a detachable...

Anker Soundcore Spirit X Sweatproof Sports Headphones Review

As a fitness fanatic that is also cursed with sweating a lot, I am constantly on the lookout for some decent headphones for both the gym and running. For a long time, I loved the Bose SoundSport but they cost £115 so it is hard to justify this expense when I will inevitably lose them(which I did the first time around). I have previously reviewed the excellent Soundcore Spirit Pro, and I still use them as my backup pair, however, when running I do find I need to adjust them a lot. For a long time, my preference towards...

1MORE E1001BT Launched – Triple driver bluetooth in ear headphones

I reviewed the 1MORE E1001 last year and to this day they are still my favourite wired in-ear headphones I have used, if you get a good seal with your ears the sound is exceptional, with a deep but well balanced based and overall just a very pleasant sound profile. I still use them semi-frequently but thanks to the Mate 10 Pro not having a 3.5mm jack it is not as often as I would like. Today 1MORE have announced the logical successor to the E1001 with the Bluetooth variant. They have bucked the trend of going completely wireless similar to the AirPods...

Groov-e Elite Wireless Headphones with Active Noise Cancelling Review

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 headphones with active noise cancelling; they were an excellent cheaper alternative option to the Bose wireless headphones which cost around £100 more. However, at £229 they are still going to be a significant investment for many people. The Groov-e Elite is a possible budget alternative costing just £69.99 direct from groov-e.co.uk. Groov-e does have products on Amazon (including cassette players!) but sadly not these headphones. The Groov-e Elite features: 40mm Neodymium drivers for premium sound Active noise cancelling which can be enabled or disabled 10 hours of wireless...

Linner NC50 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones Review

The Linner NC50 wireless earphones tick a lot of boxes for my needs, they are Bluetooth, sweatproof using a rubber construction and have active noise cancellation all for a bargain price of £59.99. Can they get close to the Bose active noise cancellation quality or even just work as a good pair of sports earphones? Design and Build The trend among earphones appears to be going completely wire-free, and while I can appreciate the appeal, it is not my favourite design for any strenuous exercise due to the issues with them falling out. The Linner earphones go in the...
