The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear doesn't measure up to the high standard set by other more expensive headphones in the Momentum line, but it still has a lot going for it for the price.
Headphones are available in a zillion styles, sizes, and price ranges. To help you cut through the clutter, we've assembled a list of top headphones by type and price.
While the Bose SoundTrue has only minor design changes from the earlier AE2i, it remains one of the most comfortable-to-wear, full-size headphones, and it also sounds good.
The Bose SoundTrue On-Ear is a very comfortable everyday-use headphone that sounds good and collapses into a very compact carrying case.
If you're looking for comfortable in-ear headphones with very plump bass, the Klipsch R6i model will do it, but they're also short on detail and clarity.
The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear is pricey, but it's also one of the best -- if not the best -- on-ear wireless headphones to date.
Despite a couple of small flaws, the Monster iSport Victory offers a great fit, is water-resistant, and one of the better sounding in-ear sports headphones out there.
The Monster DNA Pro headphones are a step forward in design and sound quality, but some users may find the earcups too narrow.
The JLab Epics may look a little cheap, but they offer a comfortable, secure fit, and sound richer than their design would indicate.
The Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear may not fully match the larger Momentum's excellent sonics, but it gets you 80 percent of the way there.
If you're looking for a $150-$250 on-ear headphone, the well-built V-Moda XS should be on your short list.
