Buying earphones is a right minefield. You start out your music-listening career with whatever came with your player of choice, then graduate to something a bit more noise-cancelly, then you start buying buds that cost around £30-£60.

B&W Zeppelin Air review

The B&W Zeppelin Air is the second iteration of Bowers & Wilkins’ high-end iPod speaker system. When the British loudspeaker brand introduced the original Zeppelin back in 2007, it effectively redefined what was possible with digital downloads.

Denon CEOL RCD-N7 AirPlay review

The Denon CEOL RCD-N7 is a music system designed very much for the digital age. Networking capabilities let it access your home music server, web radio and music services and Apple’s AirPlay tech, while there’s also an iPod dock, USB port, CD player and, er, FM/AM radio tuner. That’s a lot to stuff into a compact music system, so how does it shape up? Read our full Denon CEOL RCD-N7 review to find out.

Archos 28 Android tablet review

Archos 28 Android media player unboxed: photos

The Archos 28 is the smallest touchscreen device yet we’ve seen from the French manufacturer with Android running on it – and at the low price of around £80, that sounds like a killer combo for anyone put off by the latest iPod nano‘s high price and lack of features. Is it? We’ve just got one to try out: check out the photos of it right here, and let us know what you’re keen to find out from our upcoming review.
