Best Headphones Brands

The Top Ten

1 Sennheiser

Sennheiser honestly no doubt has the best sound quality for the best price. They are completely better than Dr. Dre beats. my $70 Sennheiser hd 429s has much more quality that the beats executive trust me my one friends who has the executives said he would rather have the Sennheiser. Ther sound is the clearest you can get and have amazing warm crisp bass. But if you are looking for a little more powerful bass on your headphones don't worry just download an equalizer and that can be easily fixed.

Love Sennheiser - great brand, great products for a great lot of years! I own the Momentum and... they are just great.

Had come skullcandy 50/50 which were great sound quality, but broke after 8 months. My pair of sennheisers that were just £30 (the skullcandy's were £50) lasted 4 years (until they sadly stopped working).

I love the sound charastics of AKG. The bass and highs are not to much. The mids are awesome. Design and comfort should be a bit better.

3 Grado Labs

Mahogany + Open Back + Handwired = Best quality and sound-stage ever.

Grado Labs are the best headphones for the audiophile. Ranging from affordable ($70) to incredibly high priced ($1600), the Grado Labs hand-wired headphone range is truly a relic of ingenuity, taking sound to a different dimension and rocking it with pure bliss. Placing the sound in front of the design, you can be certain that these things can deliver the sound you wanted and more. Take a step back from the popular brands and check these things out. Ask anyone who has a pair and they will tell you that these finely crafted cans can spoil any ear. Check them out!

As perfect as Sennheiser and Shure... get dr fool/hipster headphones out of the list!

4 Koss

I've had KOSS headphones for as long as I can remember in my music interest. They are so defined, and just amazing.

9 Beats by Dre

YOU really think it's got the best quality? Don't let the price fool YOU. I think you have never listen too any other brands or you have paid for it that you don't wanna accept the truth

It doesn't provide the quality of sound for the money we pay.

Beats, number 7! They should be number one. If you actually coughed up the money you would agree. I have the Studio 2 and the Solo 2 wireless and I couldn't be happier.

Beats are for hip-hop and design lovers only. It has a quantity of bass but no quality at all. If you love bass and don't want Beats. I'll recommend V-Moda

17 Sol Republic

I have 5 pairs of SOLs, they're the first true lifestyle headphones. Not only do they sound far superior to Beats, they're virtually indestructible and have hundreds of customization options at extremely reasonable prices.

Better quality than beats, cheaper than sennheiser, and look better than audio-technica

18 Apple Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California, that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services.
19 Bose

Beats? They break after a month. Bose however, lasts for years.

Amazing noise cancelling with ok sound qualities compare with the other noise cancelling headphones.
