Best Headphones of 2010

Best On-Ear Headphones:

Koss-Porta-ProKoss Porta-Pro$50.00

The Koss Porta-Pro headphones are an established favorite among headphone lovers in the know. Over 20 years of satisfied fans can’t be wrong. There’s no doubt that their look is old-school, and that the headband could use an update. But at a $50.00 asking price, these units’ value is as relevant now as it was in the ‘80s. One of the best kept secrets in headphones.

Grado-SR60 Grado SR60$100.00

Another classic favorite! For decades, headphone enthusiasts have raved that Grado’s retro-styled headphones are the best on-ear options you can get for under $100.00. We agree. Their open-backed design doesn’t block much noise, but makes for an incredible private listening session.
