Part of this is because, unlike other gadgets, it’s difficult to compare headphones—The only way to find out if the headphones will rock our world is to listen to music on them. But often times we can’t take prospective headphones for a test ride.
To help make your decision easier, we’ve come up with a list of the headphones that are pumping and ones to avoid. We’ve considered all sorts of parameters, from ease of use and sound quality to price and power consumption. Below are the ten of best and worst headphones.
The Top Ten
Here are some of the best headphones that you should seriously consider buying.
1. Sennheiser RS 180
2. Bose QuietComfort 25
Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones follow the longstanding tradition of excellent noise-cancelling headphones from Bose. Their design is both elegant and comfortable. With the folding design of these headphones, they are easy to transport in small carrying cases. It takes in AAA batteries to use the noise reduction feature, but it can still be used without the noise reduction feature when batteries die out. (Read full review here.)
3. Audio Technica ATH-M50x
Costing less than $170, these are some of the best headphone you can get for under $200. They offer excellent construct, and the sound is very balanced with tight bass. With added cushiony ear cups, they are very comfortable to wear also and you can listen to great music without hurting your ears. It makes up for the lack of integrated microphone with its rock solid build and natural crisp sound. (Read full review here.)
4. Sony MDR-HW700
5. Shure SRH1540
Shure SRH1540 headphones offer excellent audio performance and are remarkably comfortable. They are full-sized headphones, though in spite of their size, they’re pretty lightweight. They’re among the most accurate headphones out there in the market and offer tremendous balance in their sounds. They deliver both deep low and crisp high sounds with same accuracy and soothing aura.

6. Klipsch R6i
The bassy Klipsch R6i in-ear headphones are very comfortable to wear and are great for bass lovers. They’re lightweight and do a fine job of shutting out ambient noise. They come with Klipsch’s patented oval-shaped ear tips, which establish more perfect seal compared to the headphones with round tips. (Read full review here.)
7. Philips Fidelio M1BT
With their sleek and stylish design, Philips Fidelio M1BT headphones are the follow-up to earlier released Philips Fidelio M1 headphones. These newer models have added feature of Bluetooth connectivity. The batteries of these headphones have excellent life and the headphones also don’t drain much of the battery when connected with tablets and smartphones. So we’d highly recommend audiophiles to go for them. (Read full review here.)

9. AKG Y50
The AKG Y50 is among the best headphones out there for under $100. These excellent budget headphones provide powerful audio performance with resounding deep bass response.

Ten To Avoid
Here are the ten headphones that you’d be wise to skim through while you’re out to buy.
1. SOUL SL300WB
2. Philips SHQ3000
3. Apple Earpods
4. AKG Q 701
5. Bose QC15
6. Skullcandy Roc Nation Aviator
7. Beats Studio
8. House of Marley Exodus
9. Beyerdynamic DT770
Beyerdynamic DT770 headphones may serve some purpose for the bass lovers out there, but they certainly are not for jazz and rock ‘n’ roll lovers. They’ve also been reported to sound significantly cluttered at mid bass frequencies. Their similarly-priced rivals offer far more detail and resolve. The DT770s don’t shut out external noise as much as a good pair of noise-reducing in-ear headphones do either. (Read full review here.)
10. Beats Solo
At a whopping $300, we expected a lot more from headphones that cost as much as Beats solo headphones. But they are all about design and glossy appearance. The bass is too big and the mid-range sounds way-off. For most music, these headphones do not sound natural at all. The sound quality already is mediocre at best and it further disappoints with poor construction. Users have reported that that the cases have busted up within few months. So we simply do not recommend them to audiophiles. (Read full review here.)
