Review of Master & Dynamic’s MH40 Headphones: They Look as Good as They Sound

Manufacturers don’t really like to experiment much when it’s about the design of the headphones. Circular shape for ear-cups with leathery padding and a foldable frame have now become the prescribed formula for most headphone companies regardless of whether it is an on-ear or over-ear model. However, then there is Master & Dynamic. There are […]

Bose OE2 and OE2i on-ear headphones made for iPhone users

As convenient as ear buds may be, they just don’t offer the same kind of aural experience as a decent set of DJ-style over-the-ear style cans. Bose knows. And that’s why they’ve followed up on the older OE model with the brand new Bose OE2 and OE2i on-ear headphones.

Sleek Audio uses carbon fiber for latest headphones

For a few years, I really got caught up in the “tuner” culture. I hung out with a couple of car clubs and we would talk about the different upgrades that we had done to our cars and any future plans we had for more modifications. Carbon fiber always made its way into the conversation.

While getting a carbon fiber hood can reduce some weight and potentially improve your performance, it won’t mean much when you’re weighed down by a couple of giant subwoofers. Then again, the carbon fiber and aluminum used for the Sleek Audio SA7 earphones could indeed make you go faster. Or not.
