    Lindy Cromo IEM-75 earphones review

    By 28 February 2013

    Choosing headphones is a nightmare. What's slightly strange is that it doesn't really get all that much easier when you have access to dozens of different pairs. Some we test are cheap and work well, some are expensive and work well. Occasionally, we...

    Atomic Floyd PowerJax headphones review

    By 19 December 2012

    With their bright red cables and metal earpieces, when you open the PowerJax headphones there's really no doubt that these are made by Atomic Floyd. Of course, you might not have heard of the company, but take it from us, the style very much belongs to...

    Atomic Floyd Superdarts review

    By 20 October 2011

    Atomic Floyd have been on Pocket-lint's radar for a good while now, with the older generation TwistJax headphones leaving us suitably impressed. The company has a reputation for turning out high quality metal in ear headphones that provide a thoroughly bassy...

    Jabra Sport pictures and hands-on

    By 16 September 2011

    Pocket-lint doesn't like jogging. Let's get that out of the way early on. But in the name of research, we put the Jabra Sport to the test. In our ears they went, and off we went. To the petrol station up the road. At least a 5-minute jog / walk - plenty...

    We recently reviewed the SA-500 headphones from RHA - a division of the Reid and Health Group - a British audio company based in Glasgow, with the can's performance impressing us, so we were very interested to see how the brand's MA-350 noise isolating...

    Skullcandy 50/50 review

    By 5 May 2011

    The fact that Skullcandy describes its products as the "sickest" headphones around should give you some idea of the target audience. The brand offers a huge range of headphones and earphones with the emphasis firmly on the cool aesthetics. But, is it...

    Radiopaq Flex earphones hands-on and in-ears

    By 13 February 2011

    One member of team Pocket-lint is quite the athletic type. He laughs in the face of triathlons and knocks-out marathon-length jogs on Sunday mornings for fun. Unfortunately, this writer is not that team-member and is instead a rather lazy individual who...

    By 6 December 2010

    When we first got wind of the Midland SubZero headphones, we thought that they sounded like a rather nifty little idea, especially given the freakishly cold weather that we're experiencing in Blighty at the moment. And, with the cold snap seeming set...
