The Audiophiliac picks 11 of the world's best headphones

Eleven of the best sounding in-ear, noise-canceling, and audiophile headphones, priced from $22 to $1,945!

The Audeze made in the U.S. LCD 3 headphone, the world's best? Steve Guttenberg

The great thing about headphones is that you can, with a bit of effort, find great-sounding models in every price range. True, the best expensive models definitely sound better, but my picks for the cheapest ones are still pretty awesome. In fact, the $89 Velodyne vPulse headphones are the ones I regularly used long after I wrote the review! There was something about the sound of the vPulse that had me coming back for more. I cover audiophile, in-ear, full-size, wireless, and noise-canceling headphones, and prices run from dirt-cheap to insanely expensive.
