Onkyo is best known for its strong tradition of audiophile-grade home theater gear. But the legendary Japanese hi-fi company is branching out, and just unveiled a massive-looking set of completely wireless earbuds at IFA in Berlin. They probably sound great, but like home theater components, you probably couldn’t go…
Update: Looks like Amazon sold out of the earbuds. If you're looking for an alternative, Amazon has the popular Klipsch Image S4i exercise earbuds for $39 for the next few hours, but those obviously aren't wireless.
I’m a headphone junkie. I have headphones in all shapes and sizes, but there’s one small problem: I don’t like things that dig deep into my ears, which most traditional in-ear headphones do. So I’ve embarked on a search for more comfortable options...and it’s been more complicated than I expected.
If you ever use the terrible earbuds that shipped with your smartphone, stop what you're doing and replace them with this pair of Sennheisers, marked down to an all-time low price today.
Sensors are everywhere—in our phones, watches, and shoes. And now our earphones, too. The SMS BioSport heart rate-sensing earbuds aim to be the audio companion of choice for all you marathon runners, mountain bikers, and other hardcore athlete types who need to know your beats per minute on a daily basis.
The Fire Phone might be underperforming, but its accompanying earbuds are great. Gizmodo's Eric Limer had great things to say about them that you can read below, and you can pick them up for just $10 today, with a $1 MP3 credit thrown in for good measure.

As we reported earlier, 50 Cent and SMS Audio announced a new partnership with Intel this evening. It's a plan to bring the joys of fitness tracking to both the flakey workout amateur and the finely sculpted sports pro in the form of earbuds.
Have you ever met a pair of pack-in headphones you liked? Me neither. That is until I got the ones that came with the Fire Phone. They look a lot like Apple's (bad) EarPods, but are better in almost every way you would want. All cheap headphones should be at least this great.
We wear headphones and/or earbuds for hours every day, so comfort is imperative. Want some designed just for you? A new company called Normal wants to sell you perfectly customized earbuds by using a nifty app to get you fitted—instead of having to pay a visit to an expensive audiologist.
Most earbuds use a silicone tip that works okay, but doesn't always give you the best seal—which means outside noise will still creep in (and bass response will suffer). Comply memory foam tips are a good alternative, with a few caveats.
Apple EarPods—or whatever crap headphones came with your phone—aren't the best way to listen to music, but nice gear is expensive. You can't blame people for not wanting to spend a lot of money on something they're just going to lose or destroy. Well here's a $40 alternative to garbage that's almost certain to sound…
When someone puts on earbuds, they're pretty much telling the rest of the world to not bother them. It's the universal symbol for shut the hell up. But if someone put on this Magic Pencil earbuds? That's a conversation starter. I mean, these earbuds make it look like a pencil has been stabbed in one ear and out the…

The Yurbuds Ironman Inspire Pro finished third in our Best Headphones for Running Battlemodo. We loved the fit, but the sound wasn't particularly impressive, which is why we were excited to get the Inspire Limited edition—with redesigned drivers—in our ears. The results were... puzzling.
MartinLogan is famous for some of the most absurdly expensive sound gear that normal humans would never ever consider buying. Like a lot of legacy audio companies, ML is now trying its hand at personal sound, starting with these lovely little buds. They're impressive, but they're designed disposable.
Everyone's ears are shaped differently. In fact, often, a person's right and left ears aren't even identical. So it's hard to find earbuds that fit just right.
