ABTEC’s Headphone Range for 2014/2015!

Usually around this time of year I’m writing several product reviews, however this time round I feel like writing something different… This time I decided to do a little write up on our ever increasing Headphone Range, but not in conventional way like how I would with reviews & would select several items and do a generalized write up on all of them pointing not only my opinion on them but also Ashley’s too!
