Designer brand Phiaton makes some sweet-looking headphones that don't skimp on the sound quality (cough, Beats, cough). They're also pretty expensive, with retail prices putting them out of reach for most casual listeners and enthusiasts on a budget. But online boutique store Touch of Modern is offering two models at a steep discount starting today: the Fusion MS 430 and Bridge MS 500. You'll need a free membership to Touch of Modern to have access to the deals. Read More
Anyone in the market for a decent pair of Bluetooth headphones may be pleased to know they can currently get a pair on Amazon for $19.99. The GOgroove BlueVIBE EXS+ has been temporarily marked down from its usual price of $79.99, which amounts to a pretty enticing 75% off.
These headphones come from the same folks who brought us that adorable Bugdroid speaker, and while they won't blow your minds, the reviews are generally positive. Read More
A couple of weeks ago, I shared with you a selection of lesser known music players for locally stored media that had some special powers and functions. However, playback and streaming aren't the only functions a music aficionado looks for, especially when your favorite app sometimes lacks a certain functionality. So how do you fill this void, or how do you improve on your basic listening experience? Here are 10 utilities that can be used in conjunction with your preferred music apps to complement them.

Just five days ago, we shared with you a rather short-lived deal on Audio Technica's stellar Professional Studio Monitor headphones where the M30x and M40x were discounted 20% while the M50x was down $40 to $129. At the time, you needed to enter a coupon code to benefit from the offer, but it was still positively received because of its value. The deal is back today only on the M50x, and it's even easier now since you don't have to bother with coupons. Read More
There's nothing worse than listening to a great song on those crumby earbuds that came with your phone. You've bought a phone with a gorgeous high-res display so you could see flawless video and graphics, why wouldn't you have an audio experience to match?

Ah, the good old days, when every phone, MP3 player, Walkman, and toaster included a pair of pack-in earbuds. These days you're lucky if you get a damn power adapter (just ask the folks over at Nintendo). If you're still using the ancient headphones that came as a freebie in you Nexus One or a long-forgotten iPod, then take a gander at this Sennheiser set over on Amazon. The MM30G, complete with in-line music controls and a mic, is $50 off of the retail price for a cool $24.99. Read More
V-MODA's Crossfade M-80 headphones are discounted all the way to $79.99, a whopping $150 savings from their retail price. These are top-of-the-line headphones that are arguably worth shelling out for when they are $230, making this deal hard to pass up if you are in the market for some great cans. It is a one-day Amazon Gold Box deal, though, so you'll have to snatch them up quickly before Amazon runs out of stock. Read More
Don't rely on the tiny speakers in your phone or those crummy bundled earbuds—Motorola is selling some nice audio accessories for half price until Tuesday at 11:59 PM. Just head over to the Motorola accessories shop and pick up a Bluetooth speaker, headphones, or the Motorola Stream.
Statistically speaking, if you're using a pair of earbuds, they probably suck. And not just because you've been using the same dingy pair that you got with your iPod Nano back in 2006: even premium earbuds come with the same circular silicone pads (or maybe three or four sets if the manufacturer is feeling generous), none of which are likely to fit you perfectly. There are custom-made options, but most of them require you to visit an audiologist to make impressions, which drives up the cost of hardware that's already expensive. Read More
The tinny speakers on your smartphone are no good for listening to music (HTC One owners, please ignore), so Samsung has decided to offer you a new audio option. The Samsung Level series consists of four mobile audio products – Level Over, Level On, Level In, and Level Box. So what the heck are they? Here's a hint: the names describe their relationship to your ears.
