JABRA REVO ON EAR HEADPHONE REVIEW   Jabra has been in the headset game for a while and the Revo is their first on ear headphone. This model comes in both wired and wireless, and comes in either black or white, with orange accents. This review focuses on the wired version. Packaging and Build The Revo comes packaged in a very solid clear plastic container, and the headphones are presented well. The headphones are on-ear, and are one of the most comfortable on ears I have used. They are light, but also feel sturdy with the metal armatures that hold the earcups given good support . They armatures don’t clamp down on your head like some on ear headphones and this makes for easy...

POLK AUDIO MAGNIFI SOUNDBAR REVIEW   The MagniFi Soundbar from Polk Audio is the latest slim wireless system utilising the Polk Audio VoiceAdjust™ technology.

This comes from the two Class-D digital amplifiers that power the tweeter and mid woofer respectively. The PLAY:1 ...

HIFIMAN HE400S HEADPHONE  Firstly, Like to thank HiFiMan for supplying the HE-400S for this review.   Features and First Impressions   This is the first time I am reviewing a HiFiMan product, as well as the first time I have listened to headphones with planar magnetic drivers.

  Firstly, Like to thank Mike from MEE Audio, formally known as MEElectronics for supplying the 2nd generation A151P in ear earphones.   Having reviewed the 1st generation A151P, I was looking forward to the updated version. MEE Audio has replaced the balanced armature drivers with the new Knowles SR-31843, which claims to offer more linear bass and greater treble extension then the 1st generation A151P. The 1st generation was an excellent IEM, with a very smooth sound that had great extension with bass and treble, especially for a single balanced armature earphone, so my expectations are higher than before. Features   The A151p comes in a standard retail box,...
