REVIEW

Oppo PM-3 ( Black)

The Oppo PM-3 is an impressive headphone -- both in terms of build and sound quality -- but just how impressive you think it is will depend on what music you feed it and from what source.

MOMENTUM G
REVIEW

MOMENTUM G ( M2, Ivory, iPhone / iPad / iOS)

While we'd like to see it cost a little less, Sennheiser has fixed the original Momentum's one weakness, making the new 2.0 Momentum not only sound slightly better but fit more comfortably.

REVIEW

Skullcandy Hesh 2 Wireless ( Camo)

If you don't want to spend more than double or triple the cost on the Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth or Beats' wireless headphones, the Hesh 2 Wireless is a decent budget Bluetooth headphone choice.
