Utilizing the same exact design language as other recent Velodyne headphones, one that flaunts an inverted teardrop design, which comes from the brain of international artist and Velodyne President, Martha Hall, we wouldn't necessarily proclaim it to...

At around $26 online, JVC's HA-S400 Nanotubes are among the better on-ear headphones for the money.

Denon AH-D7100

The Denon AH-D7100 flagship $1200 headphones may be pricey, but they are a worthy successor to the company's past flagship products. The new stylings are similar to Beats, but the sound is superior.

Beats Executive

The Beats by Dr. Dre Executive noise-canceling headphones have an appealing design, strong features, and good sound, but they don't quite measure up to the Bose QuietComfort 15 noise-canceling headphones.

If you've got the juice to power these headphones, you'll lose yourself in easily one of the best headphones we've tested. While most celebrity-endorsed headphones typically get slaughtered in our ratings with poor audio performance to price, the AKG...

Sennheiser HD 558

The no-frills Sennheiser HD 558 is easily one of the best-sounding headphone pairs available in its under-$200 price range, but it isn't designed for easy use with mobile devices or computers.

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6

If recent products are any indication, something happens to headphones when they cross the $350 price barrier—they get covered in leather. The Sennheiser Momentum, Bowers & Wilkins P7, and now the $399.99 (direct) Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 all feature...

Sennheiser HD 598

Based on the merits of sound quality alone, we would rate the HD 598 a 9.5. These cans sound remarkable, perhaps the best we’ve heard under $500.
