The Very Best Headphones – According to the Harshest Critics!

If you are looking for new headphones, there is an unbelievable assortment to choose from. In figuring out which ones are best, you could research lab evaluations and critiques, or compare technical specifications but there are a few problems with doing this. First of all, technical superiority tends to mean “more expensive.” What you really want are the best ones in your price range. Technical specs often aren’t easy to decipher, and usually don’t point to a clear-cut winner, and they can’t account for personal preferences.  After all, there is a personal element to what type of sound people like. So rather than rely on the audiophile experts, who can recite frequency response and impedance statistics, why not rely on the toughest critics of all – other consumers?

Sports Headphones That Make Fitness Fun

I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine exercising without music. Not only does it motivate me to work harder—especially when certain pop anthems from more than a decade ago come on (like Toxic by Britney Spears … don’t judge me)—but music helps to pass the time and gives me something to concentrate on other than how sweaty I am and how smelly the guy is on the treadmill next to me. I’ll suggest a couple great headphones that can help keep fitness fun for you, and for the people around you.

What I’ve learned about headphones

In my five years as a blogger for Best Buy, I’ve reviewed a wide variety of products. From Blu-ray disc players to low-oil fryers, I’ve had a blast testing products and reporting my findings on the Plug-In Blog. But looking back at the past year, there was one product I tested far more than any other–headphones. So I thought I’d answer a few questions that might be on your mind, summarize for you what I learned about the different types of headphones, and share some insights that might prove to be useful to you.
