Award Winning Sound and Speech Clarity

First Thoughts

I'm a big fan of mess lining headphones.  Not only are the headphones easy to store and more durable it reduces the weight of the headphones.  This is a big deal for someone who moves around a lot while listening the earphones.  Rubber sealed cables tend to naturally want to bounce out of the ears.  It seems you have to jam the earphones into your ears so they don't and then you end up having to deal with discomfort.  NOT WITH THE RHA MA350 earphones.  They feel great in the ears.  I don't have to jam them in and they stay in place.  Even when running.

What You Get

  • RHA MA350 Headphones
  • S/M/L size tip.  3 in all
  • Soft Carry case
  • Clip for the earphones.  Nice when running.

This is the first time I have had a chance to review RHA earphones.  The RHA MA350 is their lower end model and cheapest model earphones currently available.  If their is one thing I have learned when reviewing headphones is that if the lower end models are good, the higher end models tend to be awesome.  For the price of 39.99 USD you are getting a set of earphones that works well and very comfortable to wear.  Longest listening time for me to date is 4.5 hours on an audio book.  Clear sound the whole time and no ear pain after the long usage.

The earphones do claim to be noise isolation design but I would rate the noise isolation the same as most earphones that don't claim it.  The real noise isolation simply comes from the well fitting soft earphone tips.  When you are listening you are still going to hear background noises.  You won't be able to carry on an average conversation however unless the other person is speaking loud so they do reduce noise.

I ran on both a trail and a treadmill and did not have to adjust the earphones once.  I did take advantage of the clip that came along with the headphones to help secure the earphones wire to my shirt. 

The ear buds themselves are very nice.  Soft and have a good feeling in the ears.  Un-like many earphones in this price range the eartips will not pop out easily.  I've had plenty of earphones I no longer use because the eartips popped off who knows where and ordering new ones just seems like a waste.  They can be hard to snap on at first but that is a good thing.  Once in place they should stay in place.

The mesh fabric cable is very nice.  you don't have to worry about harder wires getting oddly shaped because you put them in your pocket or have to deal wit the rubber ones that are heavy and constantly pop out.

How does the RHA MA350 Compare to Other Leading Brands?

With other earphones in this price range I can highly recommend these to anyone.  The 3 year warranty seals the deal for me.

Overall Design

The design on these is simple.  I like simple.  I'm not hear to attempt to make some fashion statement.  These are a simple design and discreet.


There is a 3 year warranty.

Award Winning Sound and Speech Clarity

First Thoughts

When I first pulled these earphones out of the box I thought they looked a little big and bulky and was concerned that there was no way they would stay in place when I went running with them on. The earphones came with 3 eartip sizes. In a lot of other brands you get 4 sizes. This was a little bit of a let down as the smallest size fit very well in my ears but when I loose the eartip (And I Will) the next size up was too big and would not work for me. I could also not find any replacements or price on the ableplanet website for the eartip's. I would imagine it's there but have not been able to locate them.

I first went running on a treadmill with these in a gym. Loud noises all around so I turned the volume up to a level I normally listen to in the gym. The speech from the audio book came in very very clear and crisp and I found I was able to turn the volume down a lot and still understand every word just fine. If you listen to earphones a lot or plan on it then you may really want to consider making a purchase of these as it could potentially help avoid hearing loss in the future as you can listen to songs and the like at a lower sound volume. The earphones stayed in place almost the entire time. Most so then the Skull Candy earphones I normally wear while running.

I have a small head and these headphones did seem to be sticking out further then most other earphones I use. I do count this as a negative.

While traveling in a vehicle and plane for a long time period the earphones suited me very well. Nice little carrying case, very easy to untangle un-like most other headphones, were very comfortable over a long period of time. The headphones grew on me the more I wore them. For an 80 dollar price tag I felt there was real value to the earphones.

How does the Editor Choice Onheadphones.comAblePlanet SI550A Compare to Other Leading Brands?

AblePlantet has another great product on it's hands. I am a fan Skull Candy 50/50 w/mic headphones and would rate the audio of the AblePlanet SI550A as higher quality. I could tell a difference and the difference to me was worth the 30 dollar separation in price.

Overall Design

For a cost of $80 you are getting what you pay for. Compared to a cheaper 30 or 40 dollar earphone the AblePlanet SI550A will beat it hands down. The in-line mic worked extremely well even in a location with some wind. Everyone I talked to said I came in loud and clear and they could not tell I was on a Mic at all. As mentioned the earphones themselves seem a little big to me. Still very comfortable to wear but you can't lay down on your side and listen to these. At least I could not.

The cord on these earphones seems durable and ones that could last me a while. With most headphones I wear out the cord in a matter of months. Next thing you know it breaks off or wires start poking out of the cord. For all those people like me who constantly end up with earphones in major not, the AblePlanet SI550A seem to not tangle nearly as much and when the do it takes only a second to untangle. Very good for those who will be just jamming the earphones into their pocket or the case.


There is a general limited lifetime warranty. Seems the standard warranty of any earphone on the market.

Noise Cancelling Headphones That Re-produce the live experience


  • High quality audio
  • Very clear highs and excellent bass
  • Comfortable over the ear headphones that can be worn for long sessions
  • High marks for noise cancelling.

  • No color options: At least at this time
  • I would prefer a small in line volume control
  • Would be nice to have the device auto turn off. I always forget to do it.

The AblePlanet NC1050 noise canceling headphones provide a very solid noise cancelling experience. The crisp and clear sound coming out of these babies will provide hours of enjoyment for years to come. We rate this product a Strong Buy and award it the Editor Choice Award for the month of May 2012. It scored a 5 Star mark.

Editor Choice Onheadphones.comAblePlanet NC1050 Noise Canceling Headphones Review

Noise canceling headphones- with Linx Audio

First Thoughts

It's been a while since I have personally tested out such a high quality noise cancelling headphone that was actually very comfortable. The first time I put them on was when my son had several friends over playing. I needed to jam out some paper work and could not work with all the running around. I placed the AblePlanet NC1050 over my ears and turned them on. It was truly amazing to go from a chaotic seen to being at a Dave Mathews Concert. The comfort level of these headphones I can not stress enough. I have sensitive ears and for me they felt better then any Boise I've worn.

How does the Noise Canceling Compare to Other Leading Brands?

AblePlantet has produced a very high quality noise cancelling device. I would put this product on par with the Bose QuitComfort series of headphones. I could not rate it above or below. To put it simply I fully enjoyed my listening experience and was able to drown out the out side world to a very satisfactory level. The headphones also work when not turned on, which can be a big plus for those who do not need the noise cancelling feature on.

Overall Design

For a cost of $349 I expect my headphones to be very durable and last me for years. The NC1050 seems to meet this criteria. They appear very well engendered and a few drops hear and there should not cause any major damage.

The right side of the headphones is where you will have the 2 AAA batteries. They are ease to change out with out any special tools needed. The bay door slides out and secures back in place with ease. Batteries are included with this device.

The on and off button are also located on the right side. Basic slide up for on and down to place back into the off feature. As mentioned before the NC1050 works in both on and off mode for music listening.

The cord connecting the headphones to the listing device is detachable and around 5 1/2 feet in length. I have always preferred detached cords as I tend to forget I'm wearing headphones and when I walk away I don't suffer any neck injury. Believe me, you will forget these are on your head and will make the same mistake. On the cord is a volume button. It's a smooth oval shaped volume cord. In my mind it could of been smaller and I prefer it so. It's a matter of opinion and if you have large hands (Mine are small) you may appreciate the size.

Overall Performance

The noise canceling works very well as already mentioned. I was able to drown out more of the background noise on the NC1050 then many other lower cost noise canceling headphones. The sound was also very clear. The highs, lows and bass were impressive and not distorted. On lesser quality noise canceling headphones you will notice distortion and muffles, not on the AblePlanet NC1050.

I have yet to use up the battery life on the device and have enjoyed several hours of use. I have not been able to determine the exact life of the battery and could not find documentation to support how long they will last.

I watch a war movie with these headphones on and got a big grin at the bass and sound quality levels from this device. It did add a lot to my listening experience.


There is a general limited lifetime warranty. If the product malfunctions with out the help of a power surge or the owner causing damage through improper use, they will replace or repair the device at their discretion. This is a very industry standard warranty. Nothing too special about it as just about everyone offers it. Still it's always nice to have one for free.

SOUL by Ludacris SL300GG High Definition Noise Canceling Headphones (Gold) Review

Noise canceling headphones- because sometimes isolation is good for the soul

From my own personal experience, I know that style and quality sound don't usually coexist when it comes to headphones. There are many cool looking headphones which you get attracted to while looking for a personal audio solution; the flip side is that the audio output can be disappointing. The good news is the SL300GG by Ludacris has changed it all. It has a stylish fold-up design and is loaded with all the sexy features you want from a set of personal headphones.

The SOUL is a professional line of personal audio tools by Ludacris. You can experience a perfect balance with world class noise cancellation technology and superior sound quality, while sporting a fashionable pair of headphones. This is probably the first headphone set which is the perfect blend of style and professional acoustics.

This product is packed with features. The fit is very comfortable as it has an over-ear design with full ear cup articulation and the illuminated ear cup badge adds style. The SL300GG comes with a breathable headband and ear cups which allows you to use the headphones continuously without any discomfort. The innovative design by an award winning team enables high definition noise cancellation. You also get this feature where you can play music in passive mode after the battery has been drained. It comes with a gold plated connector which helps in seamless signal transfer.

As I travel a lot and like listening to music on the move, I liked the sleek folding design for easy storage. I also find the protective road case to be very handy- especially while traveling. The flat tangle free cable adds to the convenience. This powered performance headphone can deliver high quality immaculate sound, which is very appropriate for music professionals and stylish music aficionados who travel a lot. I rate the SL300GG High Definition Noise Canceling Headphones (Gold) 5 stars for its high quality sound and superb noise cancellation technology.

Sennheiser PX 360 BT Headphones Review

Collapsible bluetooth headphones

The Sennheiser PX 360 BT headphones definitely have more pros than cons. They are quite versatile for your needs since you can easily switch between Bluetooth and wired connections. The stereo Bluetooth technology provides the hands-free experience along with quality hi-fi sound, and the wired connection is great for conserving the battery when wireless is not needed. It is to be expected that the price is what most people are being held back by, but let me tell you that in today’s world of technology you get what you pay for.

Right out of the box you will enjoy the appearance of the headphones themselves. They have a very sleek and attractive design that is easy on the eyes. Looking nice is great and all, but it is the comfort and sound quality that will likely form your opinion of the headset. Fortunately, the looks of the Sennheiser PX 360 BT headphones are followed by both.

One of the more important features these days is noise cancellation. We all like to enjoy listening to our audio without having to hear noises from the outside world. The closed around the ear design is perfect for comfortable listening, but also doubles as passive noise reduction. Once you own a headset that provides this quality combo you will never want to go back to the old style of headphones.

So how is the sound quality? In one word, it is superb. The sound is crystal clear, whether you are using wired or Bluetooth. There is no loss of quality when using the wireless features! Whether you listen to your music low or want to feel like you are live in concert this particular headset is sure to deliver the quality you desire. It is really an all-in-one package. Basically, you get the comfort you want, high-quality sound, wireless capabilities, and it is extremely easy to travel with. Can you get a pair of headphones cheaper? Definitely. Will they match up to the Sennheiser PX 360 BT headphones? Not a chance.

Sennheiser MM 450 Headphones Review

  • Offers the top of the line in noise cancellation
  • Wireless headset-no cables required
  • External microphone easily accessible by touching one button
  • Bluetooth 2.1

Battery life can be short if not using the cables
Price is much higher than other options
The case that comes with the headphones is low quality

    The Sennheiser MM 450 headphones are a high quality product that does come at a high quality price.  If you are looking for the capability to have a wireless Bluetooth set of headphones with top of the line noise cancellation, these headphones are the choice for you.  With rave reviews for their quality, you will definitely get the quality that you pay for. 

    Sennheiser  MM 450 Headphones Review

    Wireless bluetooth headphones

    In the electronic age that we live in today, headphones are a must for most people.  Whether you use them to play a game on the computer, to listen to music on your mp3 player, or to talk on your cell phone, there are a plethora of uses for headphones.  The Sennheiser MM 450 headphones can address all of these needs by purchasing this one product.  And what's even better: they are wireless!

    When you get your box in the mail you will see that the headphones are crafted well and as you try them on you will find that they are comfortable to wear.  They have an over the ear design that does not irritate the insides of your ears like ear buds or other options might.  The Sennheiser MM 450 comes with the following included in the box: the headphones themselves, a USB cable that can be used when using them on the computer, an audio cable with an in-flight adapter, a wall charger, and a carrying case.  Some that have purchased these headphones have complained that the carrying case that comes with the headphones is not up to the standard of the headphones themselves.  It is a soft nylon bag that can fit only the headphones and possibly the audio cable, but nothing else.  However, there are places that you can purchase a hard case to use with these headphones and have them more protected as you use them.

    The pending question that most buyers have is does the product deliver on the noise canceling aspect when they are paying such a high ticket price?  For most users, that answer is a big yes.  With NoiseGard 2.0 technology, the Sennheiser MM 450 cancels noise up to 90 percent!  In addition, the headphones have the TalkThrough technology, which allows users to press one button and use the built in microphone while still using the headphones.  And you can do all of this with the convenience of Bluetooth 2.1.  Use your headphones with the noise cancellation feature for up to 8 hours, or up to 10 hours if you are not using the noise cancellation feature.  If you are not in need of the Bluetooth feature, the headphones also come with the cable.  The charging time for the battery is approximately three hours.  So if you are looking for a high end pair of headphones that offers you a noise free conversation or a great game with friends while talking on a chat server, the Sennheiser MM 450 headphones deliver.  The price tag may take you aback at first, but if you look at the reviews you will see that people who have purchased this product as opposed to others do not regret doing so.  They are well worth the high price!

    Compact Noise-canceling headphones

    When a customer purchases a pair of Sennheiser headphones, they expect high quality products, and the PXC 310 headphones are no exception.  While other models of Sennheiser headphones are more bulky, the PXC 310 headphones have a sleek design and a collapsible quality that makes them perfect for travel or storing in general. 

    Like many of their other headphones models, the PXC 310 does offer an over the ear design.  While the cushions on the headphones are very comfortable, the overall size does leave something to be desired for some users.  However, this is one of the luxuries that you might have to sacrifice if you are looking for a compact pair of headphones.   This over the ear cushion paired with the noise cancellation feature makes the outside noise virtually unnoticeable while using these headphones!  Feel free to listen to your devices or work on your computer while not being distracted by the background noise!  With the noise cancellation, you get up to 90% noise reduction! 

    Also similar to other Sennheiser headphones, the PXC 310 headphones offer the TalkThrough technology, which allows you to talk with others while still using the headphones!  These headphones also offer many different battery charger plug options for traveling all over the world.  In addition, you can also charge the battery in any USB port.  While other compact, collapsible headphones might be cheaply made and not of high quality, you can expect Sennheiser to live up to their name with these PXC 310 headphones.  With any item that you buy there will always be some things that you wish were different, but these headphones meet quality standards and are well worth their price!  You will be glad that you paid for the excellent product that you purchased!

    Just like their predecessor, the Sennheiser MM 450 headphones, the Sennheiser name has once again come through with a high quality product.  While making changes to improve upon complaints made about the previous model of these headphones, Sennheiser has given consumers a product that they will not be disappointed with.  While the price tag is still expensive, you are paying for the quality and the reliability of the Sennheiser brand, and you will get headphones that deliver!

    Sennheiser MM 550 Headphones

    Newly upgraded wireless bluetooth headphones

    The Sennheiser brand is well known for delivering high quality products, and the MM 550 headphones are not an exception.  Consumers are looking for high quality headphones that can be used for a variety of purposes, and these fit the bill to a tee.  The Sennheiser company has prided themselves on improving this product based on the customer reviews on the previous model, the MM 450.  Some of the complaints about the 450 were changed on the Sennheiser MM 550 headphones to make them a more improved model!

    Like the MM 450 models, the MM 550 is an over the ear design.  Sennheiser did change the size of the over the ear cup so that the headphones were less bulky, but users have commented that they are extremely comfortable to wear, even for those people who might have a need for wider headphones.  Wearing them for extensive periods of time is no problem!    Having this over the ear design allows the headphones to block out a good amount of outside noise even without turning on the Noise Cancellation option.  However, if needed, the MM 550 headphones do come with NoiseGard 2.0 noise-canceling technology, which does reduce the sound up to 90%.  The headphones also come with an improved carrying case which does fit all of the included components in one convenient location, which is a definite improvement from the nylon bag that was included in the previous model.  

    So is the quality of these new and improved headphones the same as the MM 450? Most definitely.  While some users do comment that the volume leaves some to be desired because it does not go high enough, there are settings that can be changed within the headphones as well as the devices that you are listening to that will allow for a higher volume.  While the battery still seems to be an issue with some users in that it does not have that long of a use life before having to be charged, this is expected with any Bluetooth headset.  The MM 550 comes with a USB cable that can be used in many locations to charge the headset if you are in an area where a wall charger outlet is not available.  It does not take long to charge the battery and then you are back to your listening again!  These headphones also come with the same TalkThrough technology that activates the external microphone with just one button.  In addition, the headphones have an invisible microphone for taking calls as well.  If you are in the market for a high quality pair of headphones, look no further.  The Sennheiser company has made a name for itself for delivering great products, and though the price might be high, you will not be sorry that you bought this great product!

They may not be everyone's cup of tea, though; those who like their bass loud and in your face may be put off by the weaker bass on this model. Also, those who like their volume turned all the way up might start to see the sound integrity taper off. But, for the majority of listeners, these headphones will be a dream come true.

     Goldring NS1000 Open Box Noise Canceling Headphones Review

    The Goldring company has been quietly rising up the ranks in the headphone market for quite some time now. A few years ago, if you had mentioned the name Goldring, you would have been met with a puzzled stare. But now the company seems to be everywhere, and much of its growth is due to the company's “Active Noise Reduction” technology. And now, with the NS1000, the ANR technology finally has a set of headphones that can really show off the company's skills.

    The  Goldring NS1000 offers the latest in noise canceling ability and can cut out more outside sound than nearly any other model in its price range. The best part, though, is that this technology doesn't affect the battery life of these wireless beauties. The AAA batteries can provide almost two full days of sonic bliss. The ear cushions are also some of the most comfortable ever made, practically encouraging you to listen for two days straight in order to test the battery life. The Hi-Fi performance is also very impressive to say the least and much of this is thanks to the hi-tech neodymium magnet drivers.

    There are a couple drawbacks but, for the most part, they're minor. When you turn the headphones up at very high volumes, you might experience a bit of noise leakage. Also, those who like their bass to be intense and overwhelming might be disappointed by the warm, yet underwhelming bass on the NS1000. But these complaints will only apply to the most discerning listeners. The rest of us will enjoy the strength and durability of the headphones, as well as the very sturdy hard shell case that comes included in the package.
