Onkyo ES-HF300 Headphones: Home Theater On Your Head

Onkyo’s long been a brand to be reckoned with in the home theater business, creating quality receivers and speakers for decades, but how hard would it be to shrink down a pair of full-sized speakers and wrap some soft padding around ’em to make headphones? OK, maybe there’s more to it than that, but Onkyo’s up for the challenge with the new ES-HF300 On-Ear Headphones ($180). The 40mm titanium drivers are housed inside aluminum earcups, with the soft leatherette earpads and headband likely feeling a lot better on your dome than a 5.1 surround system.
