Making a short list of the best headphones is tantamount to trying to pick the best craft beers in the Pacific Northwest or the best wines from California’s Napa valley. There are gobs of options, and no matter how carefully you choose, someone is bound to come along and point out an obvious omission. Truthfully though, we’re glad there are so many great headphone options these days. In a well-saturated market, the consumer usually wins; but where do you start looking? We’ve compiled a list of our favorites to help get you going. We can assure you that all headphones listed here sound great, are very comfortable and fill specific needs for listeners. Have fun and good luck!
Our best headphones list is continually updated as we review new products that enter the market.
