Looking for an excellent pair of headphones that will bring your music alive and brighten your days?
Our editorial staff recently reviewed and selected the following headphones in an effort to reveal some of the very best in the market. Our selections were first published on www.topkit.com and are now available for your enjoyment:
The V Moda M-100 is the world’s first crowd-sourced headphone that nicely fuses together function and high-fashion. Its patented 50mm Duel Diaphragm Drivers beautifully separate bass from the mids and highs. The headphones also make use of the CLIQFOLD design that allows for compact storage. The V-Moda M-100 is an excellent choice, given its immense depth and fantastic design. $299.99
The i30 utilizes Bluetooth 4.0 and works with virtually any mobile device. They are ideal for travel, as they are noise canceling and come equipped with noise-isolating memory foam. The headphones also offer balanced sound and include a bass/treble boost that allows for customized listening. They also come with an easy-to-store carry bag. $299.95
If you’re looking for an economical pair of noise cancelling headphones, the Monoprice 8323 is an excellent choice. Given their value, they aren’t weak or flimsy and even come in a swanky box. They put off beautiful sound, handle bass quite well, and are very comfortable. When compared to higher end headphones, they are obviously built with lower-end materials — but if you’re looking to spend less than $40, you can’t beat the deal.
We can’t help but love the bold design of the i-MEGO headphones. When you power on some tunes, they put off crystal clear sound and extreme bass. To make listening and selection easy, the i-MEGO comes with one-button music control. Plus, if you’re using the headphones with your Smartphone, you can take calls and communicate through a built-in microphone. $129.99
The Phiaton Bridge MS 500 was named after the bridge on a stringed instrument. The high-style design includes a light aluminum frame, beautiful V-shaped earpieces, and genuine perforated leather components. Storage is made easy with its fold-able structure. Where sound is concerned, the Phaiton’s multi-tune acoustics are amazing. It also comes equipped with an in-line microphone for making and receiving calls. $269.00
For $50 or under, you can’t go wrong with Urban Ears, particularly if you have an iPhone and want to be able to take calls while listening to music. The fantastic audio response, portability and well-thought out cabling enables you to use them practically anywhere — hanging out at the beach, during work hours, and everything in between. The best part is they fold up to about the size of your fist to fit comfortably in your pack. $50.00
