    I really like the Marshall look, and they are very well made, but their sound isn't as good of a deal as the look.

    The functionality of the Braven XXL is pretty simple. There isn't anything complicated or overworked in its design and it doesn't try to be anything other than a damn loud and robust speaker. The functions and bonus features that it did have though are well executed and easy to use.

    The B400 are a very good set of earphones in their own right but the price point they compete in is probably the most competitive in in-ear headphones. 100-200 dollars is right around that sweet spot of beautiful sonic performance and value for money.

    Very true, seems like they just got the design down and thought to themselves these will sell on looks alone as long as sound is passable. Unfortunately all to common with the fashion brands. House of marley are another brand that make really interesting looking, well built headphones (in some models) and generally just throw whatever driver in that fits the budget. On their models that do sound decent it feels more like they got lucky than had any intent to make something that sounds good.

    I've had a couple of Brainwavz headphones. My first was the HM5, which may have been based on another brand. Anyway, the HM5 put out a very decent relatively neutral sound for an amazing price - around $130 or so USD.

    True the HM5 were a quality bit of kit, I cant remember the OEM for them I think it was Lindy. Just shows they always did a good job of sourcing good stuff to rebrand before they started putting out their own kit.

    Long overdue and forgot to upload this original Astell & Kern AKjr review. Still might be useful for anyone looking to pick one up second hand.

    A versatile 2 in one headphone with excellent build quality. Expensive though and I really wish it had ANC built in.

    Been very hit and miss with the B&O headphones over the past few years but this one is a decent enough effort yet still overpriced for what you can get around the same money.

    Sony WH-1000XM3 review. Hands down the best ANC headphones I have ever used. Noise cancelling better than Bose but stil lags behind in comfort and looks.

    A brutal oldschool audiophile headphone.

    Erzetich Mania Review

    I'm torn because i do like this headphone a lot and the build quality is exceptional. However companies like Sennheiser and Focal etc just have much more refined designs and this just has a shed built look about it.

    I've had 4 of the H6 - the brown, the green, the black, and another special edition (escapes me now). A very decent headphone.
