In-Ear Headphones

SoundMAGIC E10S

soundmagic-e10s-black-redFrom the start it is hard to believe that the E10S is under £40. The packaging is smart and of a very high quality – once opened you find plenty of spare ear tips and an attractive hard case. Holding the earphones you can feel how well made they are and the innovative switch on the jack plug will let you set the earphones to work with any smartphone – you would not expect technology like this on such a modestly priced earphone.

The E10s comes with 'Smart Switch' making it compatible with all smartphones, the E10S incorporates this ingenious user adjustable switch enabling control of Apple as well as Android smartphones. Owners of multiple smartphones can easily swap between devices to control call answer and end functions without compromise, and to top it all it comes in a choice of colours.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

If you have £40 to spend on some new earphones then go for the SoundMAGIC E10 – if you need an in-line microphone  then go for the E10S. Easy.

Sennheiser MM30G

sennheiser-mm30gSennheiser’s quality earphones are specifically designed for more and more devices it seems, and it’s the turn of Samsung; for its Galaxy series of handsets.

They have a good balance with tight bass, clear midrange and great detail.

Enjoy Sennheiser’s trademark sound signature without incoming calls causing frustration. Also the wire-mounted control can change volume and track so you need not have your handset glued to your hand.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

Perfect for commuting, holidays and around town, the Sennheiser MM30G will make a big impact with its small profile

Audiofly AF45M

audiofly-af45mAustralian Audiofly’s sound really grabs the attention with great bass, well balanced midrange and great detail without being too bright. A smooth, appealing treat of a headphone.

The 11mm driver will make light work of making your music sound sweeter than ever, while the AF45M’s single button is suitable for smartphones and will answer calls.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

If you’re after a fun sound without any chance of fatigue, look no further than Audiofly’s AF45M – they have a good heavy low end but with enough tightness to get any foot tapping.

RHA MA750i

rha-ma750iThe attractive and well machined finish of RHA’s range is perhaps indicative of their sound – bold but well honed bass, a good clear midrange and treble which will suit most people who like detail, without causing fatigue.

The fit in the ear is comfortable, with an over ear cable design that stays put even when walking fast or running.

The MA750i is a British company and back up their beautifully made products with a whopping 3 year warranty.  With earphones as good as the good as the MA750i, RHA is a brand to watch.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

If you want a relaxed presentation with no details lost, the MA750i is a perfect choice. The solid construction and lengthy warranty ensures you’ll be enjoying your music for a long time to come.

Beyerdynamic MMX102ie

beyerdynamic-mmx102ieThe new and updated version of the MMX101ie, the 102ie features a more solid and better built cable with housings which are also more robust.

Beyerdynamic is a brand that can be trusted to develop headphones that are of the best quality and the MMX102ie is no exception.  The build quality is excellent, with strong plastics and well made cables.

Bass is good and solid, midrange clear with treble giving good detail with no harshness. The single-button remote will work with most smartphones and tablets.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

For a good balanced sound with solid bass and superb build quality, the MMX102ie provides long-lasting value.

 

On-Ear Headphones

Koss iPorta Pro

koss-iportaproThe Koss Porta Pro may not be an obvious choice for the top 10 best portable on ear headphones , it is likely older than most of its current users; introduced in the early 1980s, it pre-dates most other lightweight designs and has a real retro charm.

The sound is still very current however, as the Porta Pro’s sound signature suits dance music, rap and anything the user can throw at them.

A good level of bass and midrange gives a good grunt with realistic body. The highs are a little rolled off but not to the point where it’s a problem, indeed the roll-off makes them less likely to fatigue the wearer if dance music is played.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

Ideal for walkers, runners or for use around the house, the iPortaPro takes some beating and is based on what is generally recognised as a portable headphone classic.  For the money this is amazing value – get yourself a design classic which has stood the test of time.

Sennheiser MM400-X

sennheiser-mm400-xFormerly voted What HiFi’s best wireless headphone, the MM400-X offers as much freedom as it does great sound. There are can never be any snags with a headphone of this calibre, but should battery life get low there is the option of using a cable so you need never be without your sounds.

They have the typical Sennheiser sound signature with good punchy bass, clear and balanced midrange, and smooth yet detailed treble. Isolation is good for a headphone of this type, but if you are looking for active noise cancellation consider the noisegard version, the MM450-X.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

Ideal for commuting or relaxing at home, the MM400-X will free you up to enjoy your sounds without becoming entangled.

Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear

sennheiser-momentum-on-blueThe supra counterpart to the full-size Momentum, this on-ear version packs a punch just like its bigger brother. Full and warm bass which stays controlled, mids which are slightly recessed but still engaging – these headphones would suit those who favour a slight ‘V’ shape in their sound signature.

Supplied with a sturdy travel case, these are great for foreign adventures or just for enjoying whilst at work. The remote on the cable ensures that no calls need be missed with these immersive headphones.

They are well powered by portable devices such as phones, and are really suitable for this purpose.

Hifiheadphones verdict:

If supra-aural headphones appeal to you, the On-Ear Momentum is definitely worth a punt. They are fantastic all-rounders which can do any genre justice, anywhere.

KEF M500

kef m500Portable headphones are really getting some attention again, and the M500 is a great example of the type of quality which has entered this market recently. They are designed to hug the shape of the head and look very cool when worn, although the wearer may well be grinning like an idiot!

The sound is of amazing quality and it really is a strange feeling to be enjoying such a presentation whilst walking in the street, for example. They are solidly constructed without being heavy, and feel very comfortable. The earcups consist of a very soft cushion which provides good isolation without causing discomfort, so the high quality sound these deliver can be fully enjoyed.

The sound is wonderfully balanced; the bass is handled very well and is tight without sitting too far back; midrange is clear and unforced, and treble is crisp and grabs attention without getting harsh.

Hifiheadphones verdict:

For the price, these headphones are incredible value; they are the perfect travel companion for anyone who does not like to compromise when on the go.

 

 

 

Under £50

SoundMAGIC ES20 Earphones £24.99

soundmagic es20SoundMAGIC have pushed the boundaries of what can be expected from an entry level earphone with the SoundMAGIC ES20, which makes this model a strong candidate for the title of best budget headphone. The sound is a quantum leap up from the cheap earbuds supplied with most MP3 players, with warm deep bass and plenty of detail in the trebles.

While you might expect a cheap earphone to be badly made, the ES20 is a part aluminium construction and comes fitted with good quality braided cabling (normally reserved for high end in-ear monitor earphones) with strain relief that is built to last. The quality of the product is truly commendable. The ES20 is like the baby brother of the award winning SoundMAGIC E10 which adds a full metal body and even higher sound quality - for a little more money.

Supplied with a neat carry pouch that is very usable and three size ear tips to get a good seal, the SoundMAGIC ES20 is a very well thought out package.

HiFi Headphones Verdict:

In times past the Sennheiser CX300 was the first choice for entry level in-ear earphones, but the ES20 has just stolen that spot. Sound quality compares with earphones costing two or three times the price.
