The Sennheiser Amperior headphones offer great sound quality and are comfortable to wear. The build quality feels a little lacking, but if you've got the cash, these are a decent set of cans.
The Phonak Audeo PFE 232 aren't cheap, but critical listeners may well find their swappable Acoustic Filters (for fine-tuning the headphones' already excellent sound quality) to more than justify the $600 asking price.
The Incase Sonic headphones are a standout first effort for Incase. Their elongated earcups and memory foam lend a supremely comfortable fit, and the powerful titanium drivers inside add sweetness to their sound that earns them a universal recommendation for all types of music fans.
The beautifully built Philips Fidelio L1 headphones are truly an audiophile's set, sounding sweet with portable speakers and home hi-fi systems.
The Atomic Floyd SuperDarts offer powerful, punchy bass with clear high frequencies that are sure to appeal to fans of electronic and dance music. The lesser performance with mid-range tones means they won't satisfy audiophile purists though.
The Destiny TTR won't satisfy hardcore audiophiles, but they deliver a powerful, rich, bass-oriented sound that we absolutely love.
Klipsch's ultracomfortable, noise-isolating ear tips are just one of the reasons I love and recommend the S4-series headphones. If you're an Android user shopping for a new pair of earbuds, the Image S4A headphones are definitely worth the $99.
The Bowers & Wilkins C5 earbuds offer a distinctive, classy design and a powerful sound that will please anyone who likes plenty of bass. They're expensive, but well worth investigating.
The Beats by Dr Dre Tours are great-sounding earphones that would make an excellent step-up from the default iPod or iPhone set. But the earbuds are curiously long, and might not fit in your ear too well, so be sure to try them out before buying.
The Monster Diddybeats earbuds offer brilliant sound quality, and notably punchy bass. They're quite heavy, though, so you might struggle to keep these audacious 'buds inside your ears.
The AKG Q 701 headphones deliver superb sound quality with a high-end clarity that's all too rare. But we were slightly underwhelmed by their bass response.
The Klipsch ProMedia In-Ear earphones are a worthy option, thanks to their precise sound, comfortable design and handy microphone. If you're a fan of thumping bass, though, look elsewhere.
The Klipsch Image One headphones are a solid set of cans, offering decent sound quality and good looks. Other headphones in the same price bracket offer slightly better audio, but these are still great all-rounders.
The Plantronics Voyager Pro UC combines a perennial favorite design with cutting-edge technology that results in a modern yet reliable headset.
The Shure SE315 earphones offer clear and well-balanced sound that will almost certainly put a grin on your mug. They're not exactly cheap, though.
The Denon AH-D1100s sound great, and they're incredibly light and comfy. If you're looking for a great set of all-rounders, we reckon they're worth the money.
The Monster Beats by Dr Dre Pros aren't the audiophile-grade cans the price tag would have you believe, and there are a few design niggles. Still, it's a long time since we've had so much fun with a set of headphones.
The sound on the Klipsch Image X10is won't be to everyone's taste, but if you value faithful reproduction and audio clarity over booming bass, these headphones are unlikely to disappoint.
