Unique audio performance uses skin- and bone-conduction, as well as drivers, to transmit sound with lifelike bass response.
Can vibrate to the point of buzzing or sounding distorted on tracks with strong bass presence. The Able Planet Linx Fusion headphone pair feels a bit like a science experiment, blending skin- and bone-conduction audio with conventional drivers and noise cancellation, and the results are flawed but fascinating. DesignThe Linx Fusion is, without a doubt, one of the bulkiest headphone pairs we've tested in recent years.
These days it's possible to combine the convenience of wireless headphones with a comfortable fit and strong audio quality.
The internet is buzzing with rumours that Apple is going to ditch the traditional headphone socket on the next version of the iPhone. Earin is a relatively new company to the scene, established in 2013 and funded via a Kickstarter campaign.
The iT7X2s also come with buttons on the side, allowing quick and easy access to volume and track controls. The iT7X2s boast dynamic noise cancellation, and while we can't say it's the best noise cancellation we've ever used, the quality and sheer volume of the headphones make up for it. The Jabra Move Wireless is a great headset for those looking for great quality audio without wanting to pay £100s. According to Jabra, the Move Wireless headphones were engineered by "world-leading sound experts", and though we can't verify this claim, we were very surprised by the audio quality. The Move Wireless headphones features a built in microphone that can be used to take calls and use Siri on iOS, as well as built-in volume and media controls for easy access when on the go. We do have one issue with the Jabra Move Wireless headphones, though - whenever we first connect the headset to our iPhone and play music, it 'buffers' for around 15 seconds. The Creative Sound Blaster JAM headset is an inexpensive pair of Bluetooth headphones that surprised us with its sound quality and comfort. We found the headset has good overall tonal balance, with enough weight in the bass to give a comfortable full sound. We hardly expected these headphones to be the last word in detail but at this price it’s excellent.
If you're looking for on-ear, wireless noise cancelling headphones for under a hundred quid then look no further - buy the Lindy BNX-60s. The headphones also come with a wired connection in case your charge is low, as well as an adapter for a full-size headphone jack and a headphone splitter to share your music between two 3.5mm jacks. The Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless are a pair of in-ear headphones that'll help motivate you during exercise.
While at first glance the headphones may look uncomfortable to wear, the extra portion that houses the heart-rate tracker actually helps to keep the headphones in place, with the small rubber wing offering additional support. The Jabra Sport app offers fitness tests (Rockport test, Orthostatic Heart Rate test and Resting HR test) as well as workout tracking. It doesn't however track steps, but you'll be able to find other key information including duration, distance travelled, average heart rate and an estimate of calories burned. If you're particularly concerned about sound quality, you can use the Jabra Sound app, which comes free when you buy the headphones. The Urbanite XL Wireless headphones are pretty much the same as the regular model, but with added Bluetooth capabilities. Designed to be durable, most of the Urbanite XL Wireless body is plastic (apart from the stainless steel hinges) and so does make it feel cheaper than the aforementioned rivals.
Using the headphones wirelessly will give you up to 25 hours of uses (depending on volume etc) and they charge over Micro USB like the vast majority of devices so you're unlikely to be far from a charger – a cable is included, though.
JBL is well known for its portable speakers, but hasn't always made such a big splash with its headphones.
The earpieces are thickly padded, with a cut-out section over the ear canal, so they’re nice and comfortable to wear for long periods. JBL gets a little bit carried away talking about the 'legendary' sound quality, but we did like the sound they produced. The trick with in-ear headphones is to fit them firmly inside your ear in order to get the best sound quality. They also include several different sizes of earbuds, including three made out of Comply - a kind of memory foam that can mold itself to fit the contours of your ears really well. Our only minor complaint is that the claimed eight hours of battery life seems a little optimistic, as most people tend to pump up the volume when they’re exercising, which will drain the battery more quickly. We were expecting the new headphones from Ministry of Sound to be big, chunky pieces of kit, rather like the Beats headphones - now owned by Apple, of course - which are so popular with the clubbing crowd. In fact, they look rather elegant, with a distinctive square design for the earpieces; these are also available in a variety of colours, ranging from an understated charcoal grey to a really lurid bright red. As the name suggests, the Audio On headphones sit right on the ear, and they're nicely padded for a comfortable fit. Sennheiser took its time adopting Bluetooth because it was aware of the way that Bluetooth compression can affect sound quality, and it wanted to make sure it got the sound just right. Apple's never been keen on the AptX version of Bluetooth, but it's there if you have a device that supports AptX, along with a noise-cancellation option and microphone for voice calls.

The design of the SoundPEATS Q800 resembles similar Bluetooth-enabled wireless earphones on the market, adopting a neckband design - with a few key differences. The neckband also features six button controls, allowing you to change the volume, play, pause, rewind or fast forward songs and even answer calls without having to get your phone out of your pocket.
Audio-wise, the SoundPEATS Q800 wireless earphones feature apt-X Bluetooth technology, which helps to provide high quality stereo music over a wireless connection.
We've looked at Bluetooth wireless headphones in this roundup, and many of us prefer them over their wired equivalents because of the added convenience. It's probably a few iterations shy of what it might eventually achieve, but the results are intriguing even now.
Apple, of course, is saying nothing - the company is probably too busy fending off the FBI at the moment anyway. The main difference between Earin and its competitors is that many companies that produce wireless in-ear headphones have to include an extra part that rests around your neck, holding all the tech (Bluetooth receiver, battery etc), whereas Earin has none of that. The earbuds are manufactured with two dedicated amps that drive high-precision speakers, providing detailed sound with excellent mid tones, a clear high end and a tight bass. Due to apparently high demand, Earin is currently being sold in batches from the Earin website. The best part is that if the battery does run out, the headphones come with an old-fashioned audio cable that you can plug in and continue listening to music with.
You can skip forward and backwards between songs, pause them using the multifunction button and adjust the volume.
As the name suggests, the Jabra Move Wireless is wireless thanks to the inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and built-in NFC provides an easy pairing process for those with applicable smartphones (sadly, you can't use the iPhone NFC chip for anything apart from Apple Pay). We like the inclusion of a fabric headband as opposed to plastic or leather, as we feel that the fabric feels more comfortable when worn for long periods of time. We describe it as buffering because the audio jumps and pauses constantly, much like when you’re waiting for a YouTube video to load. There is a slight roughness in the treble but without overly exaggerated treble that would otherwise make them too wearing. The level midrange means vocals are neither recessed nor pushed up too loud, and these fast and dynamic headphones have an excellent wide stereo with natural spread between the ears.
Tis comfortable par of cans is about as cheap as you can go without majorly compromising on sound quality.
Flip the ANC switch on the right headphone and you'll notice the difference, as the sound levels adjust to keep out external sound and allow you to concentrate on the above-average sound. They're very comfortable to wear and should stay in your ears in even the most intense workouts if you find the right size wings and buds (three wing sizes and four bud sizes to choose from).
You can track running, cycling, walking, hiking, skating or even skiing as well as gym-based activities such as running on a treadmill so it’s quite diverse in terms of tracking.
It also uses your heart rate to calculate whether you're in the light training zone, fat burn, cardio, intense or maximum, which is pretty interesting to look at post-workout. There's just enough bass to motivate you during your workout, but not so much that it becomes a distraction. It'll let you play music from your library but with tailored acoustic tuning specifically for Jabra headphones, as well as optimised Dolby high-definition sound, bass enhancement and high frequency enhancement, amongst other things.
The wireless connectivity will set you back an additional £50 compared to the wired headset, which is steep but not uncommon. The outside of the headband on the right side is touch sensitive so you can adjust volume, pause, play and skip tracks etc.
The drivers are powerful enough yet the tuning is well balanced and we found the experience easy to get on with. The top end gets a little swamped at times which is a shame, but is still bright where it manages to burst through.
The new Everest range is worth checking out, though, as they offer good sound and some smart features at a competitive price.
Here in the UK they're available in black and white only, but the US gets pink and blue as well. The rechargeable battery lasts for up to 20 hours when using a Bluetooth wireless connection, but there's an audio cable in the box so that you can use the Everest 300 as ordinary wired headphones if the battery runs out. The key feature here is that they're nicely balanced, with enough bass to provide a firm, full sound, bit without overwhelming the mids and higher-frequencies.
They're sturdily built, sweat-proof, and come with a handy carrying case for when you need to slip them into your backpack or gym bag. I don't get on very well with most in-ear headphones as I find that they rarely fit properly and tend to fall out as soon as I start moving around. There are some neat touches too, such as the touch controls on the earpieces, which allow you to adjust volume and skip tracks without taking your phone out of your pocket.
The earpieces also fold inwards when they're not being used, so you can quickly fold them up and stow them away when you're on the move.
Even so, they're still cheaper than the Beats headphones, while still providing the powerful bass that you need for the Ministry Of Sound's dance-oriented audience.
The Momentum On-Ear Wireless headphones aren't cheap, but they produce a nicely detailed sound that sparkles on higher frequencies and fills out with a strong, full-bodied sound in the mid-range, all sitting on top of a nice, firm bass.

The battery will last for up to 22hrs when using Bluetooth, which will be handy on long journeys, but there's also a standard audio connector included so that you can use them as conventional wired headphones if you want to. The soft, padded earpieces feel nice and comfy, and you can easily adjust the headband for a good fit. Admittedly, we weren't expecting a lot from a pair of Bluetooth 4.1-enabled earphones that cost as much as cheap wired headphones, but we were in for a nice surprise. The first interesting difference is that the tips of the neckband are magnetised, allowing you to snap the earbuds into place when not in use, which should avoid situations where you're being strangled by your earphone cables. We were surprised by the quality of the audio produced, with a balanced range and clear, crisp vocals, even when played at high volume. It's worth bearing in mind, however, that wired headphones will tend to provide better sound quality than a wireless headset of similar price.
The result is a pair of headphones that requires less volume to operate at normal listening levels. It gives you more freedom to move around without having to worry about your headphones getting caught on something and ripped off. It also has a built in microphone for phone calls, but when testing, we had complaints that recipients couldn't quite hear us clearly. This means that they’ll perform just as well playing Skrillex as they do playing Ed Sheeran.
They should last around 8 hours on a single charge, and are rechargeable via microUSB - don't worry if the headset battery dies, as you can always plug in the supplied 3.5mm cable for a wired, no-power-required solution. It's dirt-resistant and tested to withstand abuse, although we've had a few loose threads appear over time. We wouldn't quite describe these as reference headphones as they are quite bassy, though not enough to drown out vocals.
As mentioned, after around 15 seconds standard playback resumes, but it is a tad annoying to rewind the song to re-listen to what you’ve missed. Even the rather 80s name suggests nothing special, but our initial concerns were unfounded because audio quality was impressive. Treble is bright without being tinny, and the mid range and bass are well supported, particularly on hip-hop tracks. While it'll provide you with music during your workout, it also measures your heart rate and offers regular updates on your progress without having to get your phone out of your pocket. There's also slight distortion at maximum volume, but as it's rare to find people that listen to headphones on maximum volume while exercising, this isn't something to worry about. The Urbanite XL Wireless design features a wide headband which it mostly covered in fabric with white stitching. Furthermore, there's a built-in mic so you can have a phone call wirelessly, using the touchpad to answer a call.
Sennheiser does promise 'Massive bass', but it's actually nicely balanced while remaining pretty tight and punchy. There's no noise-cancellation on this model, but there's a mic for phone calls, and JBL has come up with a neat feature called ShareMe, which allows you to pair the Everest 300 with another set of Bluetooth headphones (and it doesn't have to be JBL headphones), so that you can share your music with a friend.
Fortunately, Jaybird doesn't take any chances here, as the X2 headphones start off with three different sizes of 'fins', which fit into the outer ear to keep the headphones firmly in place even when you’re running around and doing sporty-type stuff. I found the foam earbuds held the X2 comfortably and firmly in place, allowing them to deliver a firm, strong bass sound and a smooth, detailed treble. Audiophiles might question the accuracy of the audio reproduction, but the warm, textured sound of Sennheiser headphones is the audio equivalent of a hot meat pie on a chilly winter evening.
The headband feels quite sturdy, so the headphones can cope with being banged about in a backpack every now and then.
The earphones also include a microphone for hands-free calling, which is where our second difference comes into play; when receiving a phone call, the neckband will vibrate to alert you.
It may be worth mentioning that these aren’t noise cancelling earphones, and we were able to hear our surroundings even when listening to music at quite high levels. We like the levels of bass but this may reflect our choice in music, and those that aren't into bassy songs may find this slightly off putting. The sound isolation is excellent and leakage is minimal, but again that's partly down to finding the perfect size wings and buds.
The underside is a soft rubber which feels slightly odd to the touch but is nevertheless comfortable. And the earpieces can fold inwards when you're not using them, so it's easy to fold them up and slip them into a backpack or case when you're travelling. For some, this could be considered as a plus but we prefer to drown out our surroundings when listening to music, especially when in loud environments like the London Underground or on planes. If you really like a super bassy sound then Beats Studio might suit you better, although we prefer the clarity of the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless.
