The Pryma By Sonus Faber

Sonus Faber, primarily an Italian brand, has launched their first and solid attempt at a nice sounding headphone with their Pryma.  When I'd first heard their announcement of a future headphone release, I was a bit skeptical to say the very least.  Unwarranted...

The Ether C by MrSpeakers

Those of you who read our top gear for 2015 review list in December 2015 would probably have noticed me waxing lyrical about headphone that no official review from us had come out at the time yet still received a Writer's Choice Award for 2015. That headphone ...

The N60 NC By AKG

Those who require noise cancellation in their portable rig's have a severely limited selection of headphones to choose from.  Typically, the words "Hifi" and "Noise Canceling" do not go together, but AKG's recent N60 NC seems to be their first real attempt at ...

The TH-X00 by Fostex & Massdrop

Leave it to Massdrop to solicit a positive design alteration from Fostex that is both superior and cheaper than the original model it was based on.  Back when the X00 had first been announced, I’d thought it was going to be an entirely new product, or maybe a ...

Our Top Gear for 2015

It has been one of our busiest and most successful years here at Headfonics.com. We launched a new website design, new gear, new writers and probably brought with us the same complaints, delights and feverish listening of music. 2015 has been one of the most d...

The MDR1R from Sony

Since its original release, Sony has updated this headphone with the $299 MDR-1A.  Despite the difference in price tags, the 1R is still a monstrous deal in terms of price to performance. Sony is still selling the headphone at $299 new, but most if not all ret...

There’s something endearing about products created in a very small scale, handmade out of love. You realize you’re holding the heart and soul of its creator. They make what they make not necessarily to make money, but because they want to—because they want to ...

Our picks from 2013 in review

2013 has been an interesting year for us at Headfonics in terms of product reviews. When I look back on our review catalog we did less headphones and more amps and DAC's and in someways that is reflected in our lists this year. More so than last year. 2013 if ...

NAD VISO HP50 Review

The NAD VISO HP50 is a game changer in my view, there isn't really anything quite like it in the closed back mid-fi world. I have quite a lot to say about this one so sit back, relax and enjoy. I don't want to bore you with specification details in the beginni...
