Samsung Gear IconX wireless earbuds launch with in-ear fitness tracking

Samsung's newest addition to its Gear line has begun hitting the shelves: the IconX wireless earbuds.

Headphone jack axe wont send iPhone 7 users to Android

Apple's next iPhone might not have a headphone jack, and it would appear that you're not excited about that. Not excited about that one bit. We've run a couple of polls on the subject this afternoon on Twitter, coming away with results that suggest two things. The first thing we've found is that those of you that have smartphones overwhelmingly find use for the headphone jacks therein, at least some of the time, but for many of you, using that jack is more than just a "not often" sort of situation.

Jabra’s Halo Smart refuses to play favorites with music or calls

Not all Bluetooth headsets are created equal, and nowhere is that more readily apparent when it comes to the divide between stereo headphones and mono earpieces. For the former, music is the primary goal and voice calls generally an afterthought; for the latter, a focus on speech generally leaves your music as a second-class citizen, and certainly in mono.

Bose finally goes wireless with two noise-canceling headphones

As one of the most recognized names in headphones and audio accessories, Bose is known for its noise-canceling technology and quality audio output.

That has finally changed.
