Here we've picked our five favorites across every style and category, but if you already know which
If you're looking for a $150-$250 on-ear headphone, the well-built V-Moda XS should be on your short list.
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.
For around $7, the iLuv City Lights are well-designed budget earphones, but they push the bass a little too hard at the expense of clarity.
At around $7, the surprisingly good-sounding and comfortable JVC Gumy Plus is a bargain.
While it'll cost you a hefty $380, the Beats Studio Wireless is an excellent wireless Bluetooth headphone.
The KEF M200s sound excellent, with clean, accurate sound, but they just won't fit some ears.
They're refurbished, but also backed by a one-year warranty. You'd pay at least $100 for them elsewhere.
Despite some downsides, including a high price, the Bose QuietComfort 20 offers the best noise-canceling in an in-ear headphone and should tempt frequent travelers looking for a more compact alternative to a full-size NC headphone, such as the Bose QuietComfort 15.
While the ErgoFit RP-TCM125 doesn't sound as good as the cheaper RP-HJE120, it still sounds respectable for its budget price tag and includes a one-button inline/remote microphone.
