Active noise-cancelling, understated design, incredible comfort, brilliant battery life, and a carry pouch complete with an airline-friendly adaptor, all for half the price ...[Read More]

Apple’s Airpods are going to be even later than expected

Apple’s high-tech (and much lampooned) wireless Airpods were first announced back when the company revealed the iPhone 7 and all the other goodies that launched alongside it in September this year. Indeed, they were touted as the solution to Apple removing that headphone jack. But, to date, the Airpods have not been seen in stores. The initial launch for Apple’s Airpods was set for the...[Read More]

Apple patent application again hints at no headphone port for iPhone 7

It’s relatively early still in the iPhone 7 rumour game, as Apple’s next flagship phone is probably still about five months away from debuting, but one big rumour keeps popping up – and people aren’t very excited about it.

Samsung unveils Entrim 4D motion headphones designed for VR

Samsung’s Gear VR headset is the best consumer option for experiencing virtual reality, although the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive will deliver more advanced options within weeks.

Skullcandy Hesh 2 Wireless: Cans worth wanting

We’re the first to admit we’re pretty spoilt when it comes to high-end audio products at Stuff Towers. We’re fortunate enough to get to test the very best in audio gear, which means mid-range (and mid-priced) headphones often leave us, well, whelmed at best. But, with the Hesh 2 Wireless cans from Skullcandy, we’ve found a reasonably priced pair of Bluetooth headphones we a...[Read More]

Skullcandy Grind

The last time that I had my hands on a pair of Skullcandy cans they were part of the company’s gaming range and presented quite a different proposition to the pair of on-ear headphones sitting atop my melon as these words are being typed out. Skullcandy’s Grind, a set of fairly compact wired ‘phones, has been designed to appeal to the younger segment of the market and they’...[Read More]
