The JBL Synchros E40BT: A Bluetooth on-ear headphone set well worthy of consideration

If you’re in the market for a Bluetooth headphone set, you owe it to yourself to consider the JBL Synchros E40BT. It’s an on-ear set that boasts excellent sound, is designed very well, is easy on the eye, and can be relied upon to last quite long on just a single charge.
The world, it seems, has gone crazy for Bluetooth, and for good reason. The increasing quality and battery efficiency of Bluetooth connections mean that going wireless doesn’t automatically mean you have to put up with poor sound and bad battery life. The sound quality of Bluetooth sets is in many cases not exactly as good as that of wired sets, it’s true, but it’s not all that far off any longer.


The AKG Y40 – not perfect, but still a standout

 The AKG Y40 – not perfect, but still a standout
Today we’re taking a close look at AKG’s Y40 wired on-ear headphone set.
We’ve found that the set isn’t without its flaws, but by and large it’s worth a close look, thanks to the strength of its design and construction and its overall charm.
The time’s never been better for would-be buyers of headphone sets of this sort. The market’s awash in them at this point in time; a full range of units is available and buyers can have their pick in terms of price, size, quality and other key considerations.
Does the Y40 have what it takes to rule the roost – or at least to gain a little traction and carve out a...

Audio Technica A700x Headphones Review

Warning: these headphones can be a gateway to the expensive world of audiophile equipment. If you’re looking for a balanced signature sound without breaking your bank, the A700x is a great way to start your venture in the Audiophile world.

The A700x is not that hard to power but an amp can greatly improve its performance, too bad I don’t have a portable amp here with me. Playing these from my desktop’s built-in sound card, they provide ample volume for you to enjoy...

Audio Technica ES500 Headphones Review

I’m about to introduce the younger sibling of the ATH-ES700. You can read more about the ATH-ES700 here. At first glance, you won’t notice any difference between the two as they are almost built the same. The major difference being that the ES500 is powered by smaller 40 mm drivers.

Obviously built for listening on-the-go as the ES500 is lighter than the ES700 by 40g. It’s seriously lightweight that...

Cherry Mobile Cosmos X Review, X marks the sweet spot

The Cherry Mobile Cosmos X is the most affordable among CM’s Cosmos line, which is their next-generation series of Android phones having high-end specs (HD display, high-megapixel BSI camera), and here’s our honest-to-goodness review on it.

As a backgrounder, I’ve been using this as my primary phone for over three weeks now. I wasn’t able to maximize it though as I only have one SIM to use for it and I don’t connect to 3G, just WiFi. Anyway, lets get on to the review shall we?


The Cosmos X is something you won’t be ashamed of when you whip it out of your pocket. Not only does it have a really good display but it also looks good due to its ultra-slim frame. When I saw it...
