Our resident audiophile Christian knows that quality headphones make all the difference when listening to music, and he’s got some gift suggestions for the holiday season, with options for every budget. These headphones are guaranteed to get approval from that special someone – And who knows, it might even increase your chances of getting some nice gifts in return!
On The Cheap:
Griffin Wood Tones – We loved these little headphones for their quirky looks, and unique style. The sound is not the greatest in the world, but it is miles better than most standard headphones. Add in their bottom barrel price, and you can easily snag a few pairs for all your friends.
Phillips SHE3580 – These headphones are some of the best sounding earbuds you can snag for under 25$. They are not the most stylish things around, but if you have someone on your list who appreciates great audio, these should do quite nicely.
Blowing Some Dough:
Koss Porta-Pro – The Koss Porta Pro headphones may not be for everyone if they care about style, as they look like they came straight from the 80’s (and that is because they did). These headphones have been in continuous production since they were first created in 1983. The styling may be out of date, but the unsurpassed audio quality has made these best-sellers for years. You owe it your ears to experience these great headphones.
Klispch Image S4i – The Image S4i headphones have been labeled as some of the best sounding earbuds ever made, and thanks to a recent design change to the S4i 2, these great headphones can be found for as little as $50. Act fast though, once they are gone, I don’t expect Klipsch to make any more.
V-Moda Crossfade Custom – We’ll have a full review of these headphones coming soon, but rest assured, they are some of the best headphones we’ve used. The $199 price tag is steep, but with a great customization program including multiple color and laser etching, you can truly make them unique. If you can spare the cash, your loved one will never forget this Christmas.
