Sol Republic Tracks On-Ear Headphones Review

Sol Republic has stirred up quite a lot of press when the brand announced itself for the first time earlier this year. One of the founders of Sol Republic just so happens to be the son of Monster Cable's founder so we naturally have high expectations out of this new born audio brand which if we think is true, should surpass the ever growingly popular Beats By Dr. Dre line of stylish yet pricy headphones with affordably better sounding offerings. But Sol Republic didn't just make better sounding headphones, they've made sure they would sound great as well. Today, we're going to take the Tracks on-ear headphones for spin and let you know if these should be a reason to hand over your hard earned cash right after the break!

Audyssey Lower East Side Media Speakers Review

We get excited every time Audyssey outs a new audio product and that's because the last time we've reviewed Audyssey's first consumer product, the South of Market speaker dock, it blew our socks off with such epic sound found in very few speaker docks today. Audyssey is a well known name in the audio world, and we're about to take a look at the Lower East Side media speakers, Audyssey's first set of consumer computer desktop speakers inspired by New York's Lower East Side neighborhood. Will the Lower East Side speakers be the last set you'll ever have to buy? Find out as we go all ears after the jump!

JAYS c-Jays Headphones Review

JAYS is in no need of any introduction. We simply love them and everyone else seems to agree that JAYS are one of the top hitters when it comes down to extremely great sounding, affordable headphones. We've had the chance to review quite a few of JAYS' offerings and gave each and everyone very high marks and even our Editors' Choice award. This time we've got our hands on the c-Jays headphones, a very unique pair to say the least. These are portable, foldable and customizable headphones that will make audiophiles pay attention to what they have to offer. The c-Jays might look harmless, but deep inside you might find weapons of mass destruction hidden underneath that naive looking exterior. More after the break!

Incase Reflex On-Ear Headphones Review

Incase recently released a full line of audio gear to go along with its ever growing collection of protective cases and bags. Not having any audio background, we didn't think much of the new headphone offerings until we got to try out Incase's flagship headphones, the Sonic. It was love at first listen with great sound quality and possibly the most comfortable over-ear headphones we've ever reviewed. It only seems fitting that we should reviewed Incase's Reflex on-ear headphones, the next in line to the much more expensive Sonic headphones. The Reflex promise custom tuned drivers that deliver clear, natural sound across the audio spectrum and surprisingly enough, they've got the same 40mm diaphram drivers as the ones found inside the Sonic headphones.

Incase isn't the first brand you would think about when wanting to get a new pair of headphones. That's about to change. More on the Reflex headphones right after the break!

Incase Sonic Headphones Review

In case you were in the dark, Incase has its very own line of headphones and they are very promising. You might know Incase as one of the biggest names in the case, sleeve and bag business and rightfully so. My very first protective case years ago was an Incase Slider for the first ever iPhone, I fell in love right there and then. Incase might be new to audio, but it has incorporated everything it knows about good design into its new headphones. And let me tell you that it shows through and through with the Sonic headphones. These are Incase's flagship over-ear headphones clocking in at $199, and they've got a lot to give.

We've reviewed many headphones before, nothing quite as elaborate as the Sonics though. But are these worthy of a place on your head? Find out after the jump!

JAYS q-Jays In-Ear Headphones Review

After having listened to JAYS' a-Jays Four and t-Jays Three and absolutely loving both, my expectations out of JAYS' top of the line q-Jays in-ear headphones are higher than ever and I couldn't be more thrilled to review them. The q-Jays are audiophile grade in-ears with a price to match at $179. Despite their extremely small form, the q-Jays fit inside dual micro armature drivers making them the world's smallest pair of in-ears with dual armatures. Can such small in-ears really deliver audiophile grade sound quality without compromising anything else? Get past the break to find out in the full review!

BlueAnt Embrace Headphones Review

BlueAnt is one of my favorite Bluetooth headset manufacturers, and when I heard BlueAnt introduced a brand new pair of headphones I was really pumped to give them a try. BlueAnt's Embrace headphones aren't Bluetooth enabled, nor are they wireless. Until now BlueAnt has revolved solely based on Bluetooth connectivity with its outstanding headsets, but for odd reasons they decided to release their first ever headphones with a traditional wired connection. Whatever the case may be, I support that decision more than anything. Bluetooth headphones aren't quite ready to give us the same experience wired headphones can.

BlueAnt's Embrace headphones may be their first splurge into the headphone market, but at least we know they've got some kind of audio background nonetheless. How well do they stack up against a plethora of headphones currently invading the audio market? Prepare to brace yourselves, find out in the full review right after the cut!

UFi UCube Compact USB Speakers Review

A while back I had the chance to review Palo Alto's Cubik speakers and found them to be unsatisfying when it came down to sound quality and performance. Luckily, we've got a similar concept of cubical goodness to try out. The UFi UCube speakers are made by a company called Ultralink who manufacturers some high-end audio and video cables. So naturally you would think these little cubical speakers are off to a good start. There's no denying that the UCube speakers will perfectly match aside your iMac or any other Apple computer with their aluminum stands that resemble the Apple aluminum pedestals found on iMacs and Cinema Displays.

Ever since UFi announced the UCube speakers I knew I had to try them out for myself. And what do you know, I've been sent a white pair to review. So jump past the break for the full review!
