The Good The Phiaton MS 400 Moderna Series headphones feature solid sound quality and an eye-catching design that's also comfortable.

The Bad The Phiaton MS 400 headphones' Y-cable is not conducive to at-home listening, and the earcups tend to overheat the ears.

The Bottom Line The Phiaton MS 400 Moderna Series headphones are cool to look at and comfy to wear; the balanced audio quality make them a good choice for listeners with a diverse taste in music.

In a gadget world dominated by black, white, and silver, it's always refreshing to come across colorful tech. Earbud manufacturers already offer every color of the rainbow, but finding funky full-size models is more challenging. Skullcandy is a notable exception, and now more companies are joining the fray. Hot on the heels of the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are the slightly similar Phiaton MS 400 Moderna Series headphones, another cushy red and black pair that retails for $249. They may not be as fashion-forward as Dr. Dre's, but that doesn't mean they won't garner some compliments from passersby.
