What HiFi budget earphone round-up! See what Amp3 headphones made the cut!

What HiFi Magazine have compiled a top budget headphones round-up and featured in it were a handful of Advanced MP3 Player headphones. The round-up looked at a variety of headphones that were each of excellent quality. The headphones featured in the round up included the below.


SoundMagic E10



Rated: 5/5

Simply but stylishly designed the E10s boast more in the way of sound than in appearance – and rightly so. The E10s have received heaps of praise and it doesn’t stop here. Their superior sound  (that is more akin to earphones double this price point) is powerful and suits a variety of music types.


Jays a-Jays Four

a jays 4


Rated: 4/5

These are perfect everyday earphones that combine the portability and functionality well. They are a light set that boast a flat cable that won’t tangle. The sound is well defined and open. The in-line button control is a lovely touch that cuts the a-Jays Four a distinct edge in this round-up.


Skullcandy 50/50



Rated: 3/5

The recognisable skull emblazoned on all Skullcandy products identifies their quality make and individual aesthetic. These 50/50 earphones show typical preference for bass but also boast a dynamic sound.


thinksound TS02





The TS02 headphones are great and warm sounding headphones that won’t leave you feeling guilty about the environment. They have a wood housing which give their warmth in sound and are made from consciously selected materials from sustainable sources. A clear sound and a clear conscience.

Hoodie Buddie


The innovative Hoodie Buddie which has headphones built in to the drawstrings of the hoody, has been featured on the BBC 2 Sunday programme, Something for the Weekend!

In a Christmas gadget round-up for men the Hoodie Buddie was modelled by comic, Stephen Merchant. After sparking some jovial banter on the show the Hoodie Buddie went on to sell out over the weekend.


The Hoodie Buddie uses patented HB3 Technology that has two earphones hanging from the drawstrings of the hoody and a standard 3.5mm jack to connect with most mp3 players or phones.


The best feature yet about the Hoodie Buddie is not its ability to provide you with headphones whenever or wherever you may need them, nor its array of fun colours to choose from, but the fact that it’s 100% machine washable.

Keep your beats as fresh as your clothes with this great garment.

The Gadget Show rates Shure SE535s 4Gs! Read more here

Shure SE535Shure SE535 Noise-Isolating In-Ear Earphones

~ £319 ~

Shure SE535s – RATED: 4Gs from The Gadget Show!


The experts from Channel 5’s The Gadget Show have put together a very selective in-ear round up. Only three headphones were chose for the round-up, one of which were the Shure SE535 noise isolating in-ear earphones.


These are premium earphones that earned their way on to the Gadget Show’s round-up. Their sound-isolating merits were praised by Jason, a tech expert presenter from the show. He described their sound as, “great, [with] well rounded quality.”




Shure earphones are known for their high fidelity sound and these headphones certainly have this. The SE535s have a preference for bass which The Gadget Show acknowledged stating it as “very full.” So if it’s bass that you’re after, get yourself a pair of Shure SE535s!


The sound of the Shure’s might be bassy but it also has a lot of space. Having incorporated both a driver and a tweeter in each of the headphones Shure have packed these earphones with quality technology that delivers pristine sound. They are designed as over-ear earphones to keep cables out of your way. The earbuds create a seal around the ear giving them their noise-isolating quality and also provides a comfortable fit thanks to the optimized nozzle.


These earphones are excellent performers but come with quite the price tag. Rest assured though with Kevlar casing for the cable and a gold-plated MMCX Connector, the Shure’s are worth every penny.


The Gadget Show awarded the Shure SE535s a massive (but well deserved) 4/5 G rating!

RegHardware rated: 55%

‘Overall the headphones deliver a bold, open and expansive performance.’

RegHardware rated: 75%

JayBird Freedom Headphones featured on The Gadget Show

FreedomJayBird Freedom Headphones



The Freedoms are the world’s smallest Bluetooth stereo headset and lead the charge in the Bluetooth enabled headphone trend. Simply, the Freedoms are two noise-isolating ear buds connected via adjustable neck strap and sit securely in the ear, freeing the user of any wires.


Last week, the JayBird Freedom headphones were featured on the gadget geek’s weekly TV digest – The Gadget Show. The Freedom’s were included in an ‘Ultimate Travel Bag’ feature. Being high performing and versatile headphones their tech credibilities shone through to win their inclusion on the show. The headphones have received large amounts of praise since their beginning and it’s not only the Gadget Show they’ve impressed:


‘We are so incredibly impressed with JayBird’s new Freedom Earbuds. First of all, while larger than normal, wired earbuds, they’re much more compact than any other Bluetooth headphones we’ve seen.’ iCreate

Taking calls and playing music is all done wirelessly with the headphones. Connect to your Bluetooth enabled device and enjoy pristine audio. A hugely important factor that is often overlooked with top quality headphones is their usability. Too often you find headphones that won’t last the hustle of a daily commute let alone a trip to the gym. The Freedoms are designed for the active user and it’s the active user they serve.
Coming with a guarantee against sweat means they will withstand being put through their paces. Cordless headphones for any purpose is a luxury, but when exercising once you go wireless, you might find they are less luxury and more necessity.


The headphones sit securely in your ear and deliver a strong Bluetooth connection. Use them on your commute, to the gym, out for a walk, or anywhere. They blend top quality components and output with usability.
