Headphone Roundup

We take this edition of Gadget Pr0n to the next level, as we enhance today's headphone roundup with some very pretty earbuds. It's a very special Gadget Pr0n.

V-Moda Earbuds: What You Need to Know

  • They're stylish and fit well in your ear, but sometimes if you bump the cord it sounds like you're hitting a microphone
  • They also have call and music controls built-in
  • As for audio, they sound excellent. lows, mids, and highs came through loud and clear


  • $95
  • They’re a definite buy

Beats by Dr. Dre Earbuds: What You Need to Know

  • The headphones themselves were not the most comfortable, since you constantly had to push them in your ear to get the best sound
  • The cord didn't tangle up very often, but they had a tendency to fall out of your ear
  • As for the sound, they did well with more bassy music but anything with a lot of mids or highs just didn't sound that great


  • $150
  • The cost is too much

Audio-Technica Earbuds: What You Need to Know

  • They are probably the least stylish because of the giant white noise-cancelling box attached
  • The earbuds weren't that uncomfortable, but they might have trouble staying in your ears because of the weight of the control box
  • They did cancel background noise, but we didn't notice much difference whether we turned the box on or off
  • As for the sound, they were terrific, meaning they weren't overly loud and really gave a nice balance to what you were hearing


  • $75 bucks
  • They are totally worth the price tag

Radius Earbuds: What You Need to Know

  • Their design isn't that bad, since they fit well in your ears and look stylish
  • It's just the sound that has a problem, way too much treble and practically no bass, and it's almost painful the louder it gets


  • $60
  • The price is too much, so spend a few more dollars and get the Audio-Technica earbuds


Ultrasone Pro 900 Headphones: What You Need to Know

  • They are incredibly comfortable for over-the-ear headphones because of the padded ear-cups and bridge
  • They put you in a virtual studio with their S-Logic natural surround sound
  • The mids were a little quiet, but it's hard to complain about these


  • $550
  • If you have the money and want the best, these are the ones to get
