There are a lot of great in-ear Bluetooth headphones that are designed for active people. They sport many different features like water-resistance, earbuds that lock into place, and tangle free wires, but they all have one thing in common – they go in your ear. For some people with irregular/oversensitive/teeny-tiny-baby-mouse sized-earlobes, in ear headphones aren't an option.
The problem for people who don't like in-ear headphones is that most on/over-ear headphones are not great for workouts either. They can be bulky, heavy, fall off easily, and can be ruined by the moisture and salt excreted by their sweaty owner. Urban Ears has heard the cries of dismay and despair of the earbud intolerant sweaty masses and created a product that promises to solve these problems. Read More
Headphone deals are all over the place on Amazon and various other retailers' sites this weekend. But most deals we've seen so far are about wired headphones, which aren't all that practical if you don't want to be tied down to your phone by wires. Bluetooth is better, but switching to wireless usually involves some loss of quality, limited battery life, and a hike in price. Not so much with this BÖHM set.

I have a bit of a tech addiction, and as such I have a lot of different gadgets floating around my house. Some of the purchases I have made, I will readily admit, were mistakes, and sit around gathering dust unused. There are, however, a few items I've bought that I use so often that when I leave the house without them I feel somewhat exposed. Like that feeling you get when you realize that you forgot your wallet or phone at home.
My Sony Extra Bass Bluetooth Headset falls into that category for me. I listen to them on my way to work, on my breaks, and on my way home, as well as around the house while I work on projects. Read More
In the world of premium headphones, there is an emerging market for "designer" products - a niche Beats By Dre has been all too happy to fill in cooperation with Monster Cable (until now - HTC will be taking over Beats' headphone production). In fact, Beats accounts for over half of the $1 billion headphone market in the US - succeeding in ways and in markets brands like Sennheiser and Grado could only dream of. My high school-going younger brother even has a pair of these flashy phones - and he really doesn't listen to much music.
In fact, Beats By Dre headphones are the cool electronic piece of high-fashion among people in the teenage group, thanks in large part to their flashy, designer look. Read More
