    HI, GOOD REPORT ON HEADPHONES, BUT I HAVE A SPECIFIC NEED THAT I COULD USE YOUR HELP WITH. I have a profound hearing loss in both ears, but it’s a different amount in each : over 20% in one, and over 40% in the other; so I need headphones that have an individual volume control for each ear, in order to balance the sound equally. I have been using the Califone Dual Volume model for a few years, and they do work, but at less than $14.00 for one headset, you can probably figure out that I ain’t gettin "Concert Hall Quality Sound" outta them!!! But it’s funny, I’ve never been able to find a more expensive, higher sound quality model with the dual volume controls; can you help me?? Do you have any recommendations I could try?? THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE ME!!! CHAS ORVIS, A LONGTIME CR SUBSCRIBER, PLAINVILLE, CT.

    Accuracy in technology terminology, please. Headphones and earphones are two different things. Headsets include a microphone and they can be in headphones or earphones, wired or wireless. And, please no annoying background music loop added to your video. Less is more.

    I have owned SR 80, and SR325 Grado ‘phones…excellent, and from time to time, the cords need replacing. Good customer service from Grado in NYC. Thanks.

    The following comment has nothing to do with the review but… who or what is the bass player listening to for syncopation? I can’t get past the horrible bass playing to concentrate on what the reporter is saying.

    Ah you guys didn’t review any gaming brands.

    Just say no to on-ear headphones.

    Just purchased new over-the ear headphones — when you wear hearing aids, you cannot use buds so I bought a decent pair for about $50 bucks!

    Do you mention in your reviews about whether true wireless earphone cases are water-resistant (cases that is; not the earphones) ?

    Dank Pods.

    Could have gone into different types of transducer technologies, i.e., moving-coil, planar magnetic, balanced armature and electrostatic.
