Last month, Beats by Dre headphones went in for a thorough slagging across the internet, and on this here blog, on the basis of a teardown of the flashy cans. The exercise, conducted by a venture capital outfit called Bolt that focuses on hardware startups, seemed to prove that the headphones were a sham. It turns out…
We’ve seen lots of Bluetooth earbuds in the $20-$30 range, but if you prefer on-ears, this is one of the best deals we’ve seen to date.

This week we're talking about headphones, one of the largest, most diverse, hotly contested, and ubiquitous product categories we cover.
Today only on Amazon, pick up a pair of popular and highly-rated V-MODA M80 headphones for only $90.
No, really. I know they're not all black and green, but look at the little snake logos — those are definitely Razer products. Razer Kraken headphones and headsets, now in six vibrant colors. I'm so proud.
The PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset is not actually made of gold, nor does it feature any gold branding or gold paint. There's no gold anywhere, in fact.
Third party headsets are unusable on the Xbox One until Microsoft releases an adapter, which won't be until next year. Your Trittons, your Turtle Beaches, your Astros and Afterglows, forget it. Except one audiophile, a guy with a soldering gun and a purpose, wouldn't let it go.
Xbox One Sprints to a Million: Calling it "The biggest launch in Xbox history," Microsoft informs us that they've sold more than one million Xbox One consoles worldwide in less than 24 hours. They also say that more than 3.6 million Forza miles have been driven and more than 60 million Dead Rising zombies have been…
Tonight in New York, Microsoft is hosting a massive launch party for the Xbox One. In a few short hours, the people in line will have their own new consoles to take home. Ah, but Kotaku already has an Xbox One. Maybe the folks in line would like to check ours out while they wait?
In my review of the Xbox One, I noted that the console came with a curious audio omission. The optical audio output jack was unable to output Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 digital audio. That's a substantial bummer for anyone who uses a Dolby-only gaming headset. Today, Microsoft's Albert Penello addressed the missing feature and…
Hugo Dorison knows that big, over-the-ear headphones are where it's at. Not only do over-the-ear headphones look cooler than in-ear headphones*, but you can take up art projects like these video game headphones with them, too. Watch Dorison's video above to see what I mean.
So much video game playing takes place late at night, or…
Supergiant Games' award winning action role-playing game Bastion is now available on the iPad, and it's one of the best experiences you can have with the Apple tablet. Just don't ruin it by playing without headphones.
How do you review a product for something that isn't there, and isn't supposed to be there? That's the distinguishing trait of the Turtle Beach X32 headset for the Xbox 360. It's identical in nearly every way to its X31 predecessor, released in 2009, except for one. A big one.
Mad Catz's official Xbox 360 headsets has one thing nobody else has: They're totally wireless. There are three models, but the two you care about are the Warhead and Devastator. The former's Dolby 7.1, the latter's stereo.
Headphones. You've seen one pair you've seen them all. Unless they're Sony's new official wireless PS3 headphones, in which case, they look different, and great as a result.
