It’s everyone’s favorite period of the year; the upcoming Christmas season. As we approach that, we are greeted with a bunch of sale periods namely the 11.11 (less familiarly known as singles day), Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, and some small various ones that happen during the month of December!
The demand for wireless headphones has been at its peak thanks to the painful death of headphone jacks in smartphones. It honestly won’t surprise me if laptops and desktop computers would soon yank it out as well. 🙄 Superb sound quality is rarely the selling point for these types but the Drop THX Panda headphone […]
My first exposure to Hifiman headphones was during the local November Hifishow in 2014 when there was a dealer that displayed an HE400i, HE560i, and even the mighty HE500.

The Quiet Comfort 35 is arguably the most recommended noise-canceling headphone for the better part of the last decade but competition has been strong in the past two to three years with competitive offerings from Sony, Sennheiser, and Microsoft. Bose did release the Noise Canceling Headphone 700 which I’ve reviewed here but they also made […]
