Koss SP330 On-ear Headphones
The Koss SP330 headphones are solid performers that will add a full signature to your music, but some audiophiles may find their design too basic for everyday use.
Creative Sound Blaster Jam
While not without some weaknesses, the Creative Sound Blaster Jam is a strong budget Bluetooth headphone that delivers good sound for its modest price point.
LG Tone Infinim ( HBS-900, Black)
It's more expensive than other LG Tone stereo Bluetooth headsets, but the retractable earbud feature is nifty and will be worth the extra cost for a lot of people.
Skullcandy Hesh 2 Wireless ( Black)
If you don't want to spend more than double or triple the cost on the Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth or Beats' wireless headphones, the Hesh 2 Wireless is a decent budget Bluetooth headphone choice.
Monster DNA Pro 2.0 Over-Ear ( Black)
The Monster DNA Pro headphones are a step forward in design and sound quality, but some users may find the earcups too narrow.
Master & Dynamic MH40 ( Black)
Not everybody will love the fit of Master and Dynamic's over-the-ear MH40 headphones, but they are very well-built and sound excellent.
If you've always wanted to own a pair of high-end "audiophile" headphones but can't quite justify dropping a grand on a pair, the superb sounding HiFiMan HE-400i is a good compromise.

Harman Kardon's well-built and compact Soho Wireless is a solid on-ear Bluetooth headphone that doesn't quite surpass competing models from Bose and Beats.

While it sounds significantly different form the original Aurvana Live, the new Aurvana Live 2 is also a very good over-the-ear headphone value.
Sennheiser HD 202 II
If you're on a strict budget and can't spend more than $40, the Sennheiser HD 202 IIs are a worthwhile entry point for aftermarket cans, boasting a comfortable fit and the company's excellent signature sound.
Beats Solo2 Wireless ( Red)
Beats on-ear Bluetooth headphone has lot going for it, but it doesn't quite justify its lofty price tag.
The Shure SRH145m+ may not be swanky, but it fits well and delivers strong performance for a reasonable price.

Samsung Level On ( White/Tan)
Except for Galaxy compatibility, the Samsung Level On doesn't offer anything you won't find in other, better on-ear headphones for the same price.
Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless ( Black)
While it's a bit overpriced, the Beats Powerbeats 2 Wireless is among the best wireless sports earphones.

Beats Studio Wireless ( Black)
While it'll cost you a hefty $380, the Beats Studio Wireless is an excellent wireless Bluetooth headphone.
Beats Studio 2013 ( Blue)
They may not be a bargain at $300, but the new Beats Studio headphones are lighter and better-built, and sound significantly better than the original Beats Studio model.
They're fairly pricey, but the combination of very good sound and a sleek, comfortable design, make the KEF M500s contenders in the $300 price class.
Despite atrocious cosmetic qualities, the insanely cheap Superlux HD681 headphones have a sound that aspires to greatness and only narrowly misses the mark.
The KEF M200s sound excellent, with clean, accurate sound, but they just won't fit some ears.
They've been around since 1991, but the Sony MDR-7506s are still great sounding -- and fitting -- headphones for less than $100.
They may be close to 30 years old, but the comfortable fitting Sony MDR-V6s are arguably the best-sounding headphones for under $100.
Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones
Despite a few question marks and a high price, the Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
