The Good The Radius Atomic Bass earphones for iPhone are very comfortable, compact, and stylish; overall sound quality is impressive for the price.

The Bad The Radius Atomic Bass for iPhone doesn't offer the best sound isolation, and the bass can be mushy and overpowering. The thin cable may not be durable. Doesn't include a travel pouch or other accessories.

The Bottom Line The Radius Atomic Bass earphones for iPhone are a worthwhile upgrade from the stock set that comes with the phone; they're comfortable, stylish, and offer great sound for the money.

Editors' Top Picks

The iPhone is a great multimedia device, but it's not perfect. One of the most glaring oversights for this music phone is the lack of stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) compatibility. As a result, you're limited to clunky adapters or wired headsets if you want to enjoy music and conversation to the fullest. Now, you can count on another wired option from Radius, the Atomic Bass earphones for iPhone. These headphones will only set you back about 50 bucks, and they retain the built in mic found on the set included with the phone while offering improved audio and comfort. In fact, the Atomic Bass iPhone earphones put forth sound befitting a pricier pair--just be sure you're a fan of heavy bass before you snap up a set.
