Headphones seem to get more and more expensive every time a new major brand releases a new model. It’s for good reason though. The sound you hear from some Beats headphones compared to a regular old pair of standard ear buds is a tremendous difference. Below I have taken the time to do some headphone research myself and pick out some headphones with excellent sound quality.

Fanny Wang – 2000 Series Dj Wang Headphones with Remote
So I put on these headphones and turned on something with a lot of bass. TNGHT – Bugg’n starts popping my eardrums left and right. The bass in these headphones is equal to if not better than a lot of other headphones I’ve tried and I was really impressed by how easily they stick on your head. None of that flopping off my ears mumbo jumbo when I’m head bobbing. These headphones are light and emit high quality sound. By the way, as I write this, I’m still wearing these headphones because of how comfortable they are.
The chord on these headphones is close to 4” and is equipped with volume and song control. Just like the ear buds that come with your iPhone, these headphones have the capability of placing phone calls on your iOS device with the embedded microphone in the remote. Also on the chord is a splitter. No longer do you have to go find a splitter for your friends to listen along with you (even though these headphones are also packaged with one.) Now you can plug right into the headphone chord. The Wangs come with a sleek design and case for easy mobility when traveling and come with a quarter inch connector so that you can plug into your guitar amp or interface for the highest sound quality possible while recording. Just by handling these headphones for a moment you can see there aren’t a ton of moving parts which helps improve its already excellent durability.
I would recommend these headphones to anyone who wants professional sound quality and enjoys listening to clear, crisp music with thickness and substance for half the price of some of its major competitors.

Skull Candy – 2012 Roc Nation Aviator Headphones
With an impedance of 34Ohms and pumping 104Dbs these headphones provide superior quality to many other headphones in Skull Candy’s lineup. Personally Skull Candy has never steered me wrong. They always provide top notch headphones even in their less expensive models. These headphones however are a cut above and provide a noticeable difference in sound quality not to mention how comfortable these puppies are.

Sennheiser – Momentum Headphones
Here is a pair of headphones that deserves more credit than they receive. The Sennheiser brand is known for sound quality. These headphones provide exactly that and more. With speakers topping out at 110Db’s you will be sure to hear every note in that face melting guitar solo. I really like these headphones for the fact that when you put them on correctly, you can totally immerse yourself into anything you are listening to. The padding on them will remind you of a warm little earmuff sound cave. Have you ever been in a warm little earmuff sound cave? You’ve got to try it!

Beat by Dr. Dre – Beats Pro Headphones
What is a headphone blog without Beats by the doctor himself? These pro beats headphones are top of the line. It doesn’t get much better than this folks. If are a musician, producer, or just care deeply about the music you listen to, these are the headphones to invest in. When you do snag these beats, you will be amongst professionals in the industry such as Will.I.Am and David Guetta. Don’t take it from me though. Ask the DR.

Audio Technica – Quietpoint 3 Level Active Noise Cancelling Headphones
Last but certainly not least are the Quiet Point Noise Cancelling headphones from Audio Technica. These headphones will simply greet your eardrums when placed upon your head. They will become friends with your eardrums. Shortly after listening to ANYTHING, your brain should have a new message in its inbox from your ears with, “Don’t ever take these things off!” written in the subject line and a court order attached insisting that you cease and desist all listening requiring removal of the Audio Technica headphones. All joking aside, these headphones are very awesome. Three noise cancelling modes allow you to adjust the headphones to what type of noise you are trying to block out simultaneously adjusting the quality of sound emitted from the headphones. If that’s not enough, how about 100Db’s with an impedance of 100Ohms?
