Beats by Dr. Dre EP

The Beats EP may be a simple, wired, on-ear headphone, but it's arguably Beats' best headphone for the money.

AKG N60 NC

We'll make this simple: If you're looking for best-in-category active noise cancellation, that distinction still belongs to Bose—check out the aforementioned QC 35 or the in-ear QC 30, both of which are wireless. However, if you want the best Bluetooth...

Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear

The Q Adapt On-Ear are a solid, ambitious debut in the headphone department from Libratone. The noise cancellation is better than average, the audio performance is strong, if very sculpted, and the design is attractive and comfortable. The best...

Bragi The Headphone

Bragi's The Headphone is essentially a simplified version of the Dash for half the price. We like the easier physical controls, but we're less enthused about the included silicone eartips and the charging case's lack of a battery. There's also audio...

AKG K92

They may not feel like a premium pair of cans, but the sound quality of the K92s more than make up for the plastic exterior.

Sudio VASA

Battery life is rated at 8 hours, which is a reasonable amount for this type of headpdhones, and charging is handled over Micro USB. You don't get any advanced notice when the battery is low, though, and once the beep warning triggers it will repeat...

Thumbs up for a really good mic, and for eliminating the problems that persist with wired headphones – no cord to get caught and rip out is always worth a mention with sport headphones. But the Trekz Titanium AS600’s aren’t easy to store without the...

Plantronics BackBeat Sense

Plantronics didn’t really take a risky approach with the BackBeat Sense, leaning toward neutral with both the design and audio performance. We can’t say these are ideal for any particular genre of music because they aim to treat them all the same. Bass...
