It can be daunting trying to decide which big headphones to get when the time comes to invest in some big fat bass speakers for your head. And it’s even all the more difficult to decide when there are so many celebrities endorsing so many products. We have our own favourite, in-ears by ACS.

First things first, while Beats By Dre are good, they’re more of a fashion accessory than necessarily the best on the market. So if you want to know which ones we think you should get, here’s our pick of the top five. Most of them cost less than the high-end studio pair of Beats, too!

1. Sony MDR7506

Best for: the all-rounder.

2. Shure SRH840

Best for: audiophiles

3. Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

Best for: your first pair of proper studio headphones.

4. Sennheiser HD-280 Pro

Best for: those always on the go.

5. Beyerdynamic DT 880

Best for: anyone with a bit more money to spend.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity
