Style Name: Noise-CancelingPackage Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black
About 4 years ago, on a whim, I bought a pair of Able Planet Clarity Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones for $69 off Groupon. Not familiar with the brand and the noise canceling technology, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product. The fidelity sounded great, the ANC feature worked well and they had a really solid build. However, I learned that I had to be cautious about putting them in airplane seat pockets while flying as the battery cover would slide off when I grabbed them exiting the plane. Well, it finally happened. In a hurry to catch a connecting flight I snagged my headphones from the pocket of the seat in front of me and carried them to my connecting gate. By the time I realized the battery cover was gone, it was too late. I suddenly found myself in the market for a new set of noise canceling headphones. Although I love the Able Planet cans, I decided to actually do some research before I bought a new pair of ANC phones. Besides, I wanted to find a different brand for which I didn’t have to worry about losing the battery cover. I set my budget at $200 - $300 but really didn’t want to reach the upper end of the price range. I’m a “best bang for my buck” kind of guy.

Being somewhat a tightwad and a researcher, I began my search for a new set of cans by scouring the internet for prices and reading “professional” reviews of the various products. I decided on several models but didn’t want to buy until I was able to try them out. After fairly extensive research I decided to try-out the following headphones: AKG K 490 NC ($214); Bose QuietComfort 15 ($299); Polk UltraFocus 8000 NC ($299); and Audio Technica ATH-ANC7b QuietPoint ($179).

Style Name: BluetoothPackage Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black
Last year I picked up and reviewed the MDR-1RBT headphones from Sony, this year they released a "budget" model, the MDR-10RBT and will also be releasing the MDR-1RBTmk2; which will have the same design as the 1RBT.

Since one of the issues I had previously was the quality and build of the 1RBT to begin with, the 10RBT has corrected everything I ever disliked about the "flagship" model of the line. The thinner headband (which is metal under the cushion) and more sleek lines are much appreciated for portable use. They picked up a few of the better design cues from the Parrot Zik headphones that were "designed by Stark"; mixing it with the better looking parts of the 1R line, for just a damn good looking pair of headphones. These headphones also retail for $150 less than the 1RBTs and weigh a bit less. Some may feel that they used cheaper materials in the 10RBT but I certainly do not feel that way. The materials are on par, with the hinge of the ear cups having a wider turning radius in both directions than ANY of the Sony headphones I've used, besides the "DJ" models that turn all the way around. The ear cups themselves seem to be better stitched and look less "home sewn". The fit of the headphone is pretty loose, but not as loose as the 1RBTs. I prefer that they are a little more snug so I can get a good seal on my head to prevent the headphones from moving. I also have a pretty big head, though not enormous. I am comfortable with the adjustment down about 1 or 2 notches down on each side.

Sound quality is on-par with the 1RBT, I think these are slightly less bass-y and a tinge muddier on the low end but over the first 3 hours I used the 10RBTs they progressively got better and more sounded clear. So a burn-in is definitely necessary on these headphones.

Style Name: BluetoothPackage Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black
I was looking for a pair of bluetooth headphones for working around the house that wouldn't break the bank. I've already done that with a a pair of Sennheiser HD-700 and HE-500 and other pieces of "high end" gear. Ultimately, I just want to be able to use my iPhone 5S or iPad to stream music without wires. My two choices were the MDR10RBT and Bose AE2W. Since I already have a pair of AE2i and QC15, I was initially leaning towards the Bose but the Sony had such good reviews that I had to give them a try.

The short -
The Sony are well worth their money and, at half the price, a compelling purchase. IF you have the ability to EQ a little, or you really like strong bass, then they're amazing. If you prefer a "lighter" sound and have the extra money, the Bose are great headphones. For me, the Sony paired with my iPhone are good with the built in music app, and great when paired with the Equalizer app after some fine tuning (-6dB at 80Hz and +2 at about 4500Hz). It's amazing when paired with my macbook with an eq in iTunes. Here's why...

The Long -
I'm writing this to try to help clarify some of the bluetooth audio confusion out there...

There are a number of different flavors of bluetooth audio. The most common are SBC, AAC, and Apt-X. The Sony headphones can do all three. FWIW, the Bose cannot use the Apt-X protocol, but does use the AAC and high-end SBC protocols.

Here's the breakdown (as I understand them):
SBC - the most basic protocol. Bitrates can vary a lot, anywhere up to 256Kb. As the handshake happens, the bitrate gets set and can change depending upon connection quality. Good connection = good quality sound. Not exactly CD, but good. Bad connection = FM radio quality.
