JVC Flats
REVIEW

JVC Flats ( Blue)

Though they look a little cheap, the JVC Flats are lightweight, comfortable on-ear headphones that sound surprisingly good for sub-$15 headphones.

Apple EarPods
REVIEW

Apple EarPods ( with Remote and Mic, White)

Apple's EarPods offer much-improved sound over the previous standard-issue earbuds, but they won't fit all ears equally well -- and that fit will determine whether you think they're great or just so-so.

REVIEW

Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120-A ( Blue)

For under $10, you'll be hard-pressed to find in-ear headphones that sound better and are more comfortable than the Panasonic ErgoFit RP-HJE120s.

MoGo Talk XD Bluetooth Headset
REVIEW

MoGo Talk XD Bluetooth Headset ( and Protective Case for iPhone 4, Black)

The idea behind the MoGo Talk XD is clever, but we don't think the features fully justify its retail price.

Aerial7 Tank
REVIEW

Aerial7 Tank ( Hello Kitty)

The Aerial7 Tank Headphones will not satisfy audio purists or comfort hounds, but the young, DJ'ing target audience might be wooed by the durable and eye-catching design.

REVIEW

JVC HAF130V Gumy ( Grape Violet)

The JVC Gumy earphones are more stylish than stock earbuds and offer a slight improvement in audio quality--not bad for about 10 bucks.

IBLINK BLP3
REVIEW

IBLINK BLP3 ( Black with Pink LED Lights)

The iBlink Earbuds may be gimmicky, but at least it's a fun gimmick that has a good chance of appealing to the younger set. Steer clear if you're picky about audio.

Candy Comfort
REVIEW

Candy Comfort ( York Peppermint Pattie)

The Candy Comfort Earphones are a fun replacement for stock earbuds that offer a reasonable upgrade in fit and comfort, but don't expect good sound quality.
