One of the best cheap headphones are worth considering if you're on a tight budget. Just because they fall in the 'cheap' price range, it doesn't mean that they scrimp on quality. In fact, many budget headphones on the market are surprisingly robust, deliver great audio, and come with extra features like Bluetooth and noise cancellation. In many ways, the best headphones are much like small pieces of art, prioritizing high-end features, beautifully balanced sound, and a stunning design over anything else. The catch is, they also tend to be pricey, ideal only for real connoisseurs who are willing to spend a fortune on audio equipment. For most people, however, budget models work just as well, even if the audio quality might not be audiophile-level. Here at TechRadar, we’ve built a reputation for covering technology of every shape, size and price point. And, the hours and hours of headphones testing we've put in makes us the best people to help find budget headphones that look, … [Read more...] about The best cheap headphones: top budget earbuds and cans in 2022

Audio player loading… While the Apple M1 Ultra stole the show at its latest March event , we were paying particular attention to the company’s advancements in AV. Among the dozens of announcements from the event was the news that the new Mac Studio - the $1,999 / £1,999 / AU$3,099 workstation computer that’s aimed at creative professionals - has a key component that audiophiles will really enjoy: a pro audio jack for high-impedance headphones or external amplified speakers. With it, you should be able to drive even the most notoriously difficult headphones on the market (we’re looking in your direction, Hifiman HE-6) without needing a dedicated amp/DAC. For some, that could be a great reason to upgrade. We also saw the launch of a monitor that includes spatial audio in the form of the new Studio Display . It's expensive - and it lacks HDR for some reason - but if you want spatial audio everywhere or need it for mixing, it's going to be very tempting. … [Read more...] about Apple might have just made the best workstation for audio lovers
Audio player loading… I'm no idiot. I'm just a dreamer. I knew the recent Apple event (the highlights from which you can catch up with in our Apple March Event round up ) was going to most likely be all about Apple's iPhone SE 3 , perhaps a new Mac Studio edition, and a souped-up iPad Air 5 . And that all proved to be right on the nose, along with the reveal of a new Studio Display and M1 Ultra chipset . But more than anything I'd still love to see a new HomePod launched. Because, now even more so than when the original HomePod launched back in 2017, the time is right for a high-end smart speaker. And Apple finally has all the puzzle pieces to make it rock – with spatial audio at its heart. An uncharacteristically quiet launch When the HomePod was first revealed in 2017, after many months of rumors and pre-release hype, it eventually landed in shops in February 2018 with a little plop rather than a cannonball splash, a whimper rather than … [Read more...] about With spatial audio singing, I’m wishing for a new HomePod
Audio player loading… Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is coming later this year, as developer Infinity Ward spins ups a sequel to 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The release of a new Call of Duty game won't come as a surprise to fans. After all, the first-person shooter series has a fairly reliable annual release schedule and 2022 won't change that – 2023, on the other hand, could be another story .

Posting the announcement on its official social media channels on Tuesday, October 26, Legendary Pictures – the film's production company – revealed that a sequel had finally been given the greenlight.

Thankfully, it seems that its global ticket sales helped to persuade Warner Bros. and Legendary that a follow-up movie was worth the investment. Despite fans' delight that a Dune sequel will be forthcoming, though, we shouldn't expect the second part of Denis … [Read more...] about Dune Part 2 is officially happening – so when will it arrive?
