While it may not be the best-sounding headphone for the money, the Bose Freestyle's superior design and comfort level make it a go-to choice for anyone seeking a sporty and stylish in-ear model.
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.
The well-designed Moshi Mythro earbuds feature quality sound at an affordable price.
The Paradigm Shift E3m is a fine-looking, beautifully built in-ear headphone, but the admirable design elements don't offset its mediocre sound.
The iBlink Earbuds may be gimmicky, but at least it's a fun gimmick that has a good chance of appealing to the younger set. Steer clear if you're picky about audio.
The Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds offer big bass and useful features for a reasonable price--just don't expect top-notch construction.
Some high-end headphones are all about maximizing detail and resolution, the ZMF Blackwood goes in the other direction, toward music.
Oppo's gorgeous new, beautifully crafted headphones are best in their price class, says the Audiophiliac.
LG's high-end, around-the-neck stereo headset has a nifty design and pretty good sound, as long as you get a good fit.
The combination of an improved design and better performance makes the Marshall Major II a strong on-ear contender for around $100 USD.
Planar magnetic drivers are usually found in high-end, open-back models, but the new closed-back, $399 Oppo PM-3 breaks new ground.
