Evaluating Comfort and Design: A Key Priority in HEADPHONE Reviews

If technology is to air what oxygen is to blood, then headphones must be looking a bit like scarlet fever at the moment: it’s an age where you’re more likely to be listening to a song, watching a movie or co-ordinating a team call via earbuds than anything else. Of course, with so much choice on the market, how do you marry up the one with you? Never fear, because we strap ourselves into the exhaustive process of headphone testing here at ZDNET.

Noise Cancellation: Silencing the World with HEADPHONES

In the world of headphones, making chaos suddenly vanish is considered a desirable feature. On ZDNET, our process for reviewing headphones and earbuds involves having an editor don them at noisy airports and coffee shops in order to describe the experience in a real-world environment. How much of the soundscape gets blocked out when you plunge your ears into the headphones? How much of the white noise in a busy office pours into your eardrums?

The Sound Odyssey: Exploring Audio Quality with HEADPHONES

Audiophile audio quality testing is a journey through genres, devices and use cases. ZDNET’s audiophiles find out how music can actually sound through your headphones. We go into the details of how software, the device’s operating system, the music service you use, and even specific aspects of that music service can affect the acoustic landscape through features like noise-canceling and transparency modes. We want you to know exactly what to expect.

Battery Life: The Long Haul with HEADPHONES

See whether a pair of headphones can keep up with a bee in a race against everyday usage: that’s the challenge that the ZDNet team sets for manufacturers’ claims. Every feature is switched on, volumes turned up and down, and calls are made in an attempt to analyze whether those headphones can withstand the busiest of busy bees.

Understanding HEADPHONES: A Closing Note

Headphones and earbuds went from just delivering audio to becoming a way of life. Whether you use them to listen to your favourite podcast on the packed train ride home from the office, or to unwind from a long day to your own playlist, then knowing the right headphones for you is crucial. Our extensive and thorough testing helps ZDNET readers to find the right headphones for them – not just for playing music, but for a yearning and itching ear.
