Philips Fidelio L3 review

At first glance, the Philips L3 look to be on the larger side compared with some of their competitors, but it’s actually a bit of an optical illusion. That’s because the earcups are circular rather than oval, meaning even the larger-lugged among us shouldn’t find their ears in danger of bothering the (very comfy) cushioning. It is styling we often see in the pro hi-fi crowd, but thankfully the… → Read More

1More Quad Driver review

You’ll certainly see where your extra pennies have been spent when it comes to the design of these in-ears. Made out of solid aluminium, the buds both look and feel like a premium product, with a flash of red titanium around the middle to give them a splash of colour. The reassuringly click-y universal three-button remote on the anti-tangle Kevlar cable and the angled 3.5mm jack are also… → Read More

RHA TrueConnect review

For starters, the design is lovely. Their lollipop shape mean they can’t escape comparisons with the AirPods, but their matte black soft-touch finish does help them to stand apart from their rivals. At just 7g per earbud, they’re lightweight and comfortable to wear, with a choice of seven silicone tips and three Comply foam tips to help you get a snug fit. The little tail of the design helps… → Read More

Packing Denon’s proprietary FreeEdge driver technology, they use ‘floating’ diaphragms to cut out resonance,… → Read More

Sony XG83 leads the 4k HDR mid-range for humbler budgets

It can be a little hard to get excited about mid-range TVs, when their flagship counterparts are all fancy tech and cutting-edge specs. But when you consider the tech that’s running these mid-range beauties was flagship stuff just a year or two ago, it’s a smart way to spend a more humble budget. Sony has just announced four new 4K HDR sets that tick this box – the XG83, XG81, XG80 and XG70 –… → Read More
