1. Audio Technica ART series
These headphones just kick ass. The ATH-xxx series of closed headphones make for comfort and quality sound, yet not disturbing others around you. The winged design allows any user to put on these headphones without having to re-adjust anything. With a range of different units, these headphones can cater a range of budgets. These cans are also well balanced and have a great sound stage considering they are closed headphones.
2. Bang & Olufson A8
The greatest low profiled headphones that can fit even into the tiniest pockets! These are very durable headphones because of the metal ear bands that come with a rubber lining. The sound quality is amazing. I tried to listen to Damien Rice’s, “The Blower’s Daughter”, and I was even able to hear the background studio noise. It’s that great!
3. Bose Quiet Comfort 2 – Acoustic Noise Canceling
Now these headphones are very good too. These are more expensive than your regular high-end headphones but it’s worth the cost! Quiet Comfort’s lasts longer than other brands. It’s also very comfortable for the ears. The head band that connects the earphones is very durable plus they are wireless! Now, let’s talk about the sound quality. These headphones provide excellent noise canceling abilities. Trust me, even if you’re seated on an airplane, if you have these on, you won’t hear much engine noise at all.
4. Sony MDR-V700 Studio Monitor Series
These are very famous DJ headphones (trust me, they swore). When you go to a club, check out what type of headphones a lot of DJ’s have on. I’m sure they will probably have a pair of 700’s. Sound quality? Very rich! The sound is just very well balanced. You’ll never flinch because of how loud the music will be. Again, it’s purely balanced. These are also very durable; these have a double enforced head band, as well as metal components in the design for durability.
5. Bose Triport
When you get to see these headphones, you would probably think that I’m crazy recommending them because they don’t look like they produce good music. However, when you hear the brand, “Bose”, you won’t have any second thoughts of getting any other headphone brand. First of all, they are very comfortable for the ears because of how light they are and because of the type of padding they use. When it comes to the sound quality, it’s terrific! Alicia Keys has a very raspy voice, which you wouldn’t normally hear using ordinary headphones. But when you use these, you’ll really hear how her voice is wearing a pair of these headphones.
