Everyone loves their music on the move, and so we all need a good pair of headphones, the best music sounds even better with some of the cool headphones available in the marketplace. Here’s a list of the best headphones I think is worth the Mention.

Sony MDR-570 LP

If you’re after a pair of great-sounding on-ears at a bargain price, look no further. With decent bass, bags of detail and a musical balance that embarrasses more expensive designs, they’re better than they have any right to be. And they look great, too. Price: ~$60.

Phonak Audeo PFE 012

It’s not easy creating the perfect headphone. Music is so subjective that one human’s perfect pitch is a little lacking in bass for another, and too brightsounding for pedant no.3. The PFE 012s do about as good a job of satisfying disparate tastes as any in-ears we’ve tried. Building on the success of the pricier 111s, they dig up bags of detail, deliver sweet vocals and a palpable soundstage, and up the bass to party-worthy levels. They’re also barely-there lightweight and subtly attractive. They could easily sell for twice the price. Price: ~$80.

Klipsch Image X10i

Though the X10s were our favourite in-ears for years, the X10i now looks too pricey for the no.1 spot. Built-in iPod/iPhone controls are useful, but it’s the sound and size that really impress – the buds are slim as lolly sticks but sound thrilling and insightful. Price: ~$250.

Sennheiser CX300-II

Thanks to amazing price reductions, the CX300-IIs represent even better value for money. Replace your bundled headphones with these and you’ll find out what you’ve been missing: deep bass, sparkling detail and dramatic dynamics. You’ll thank us later. Price: ~$60.

Powerbeats by Dr Dre

null

We never had Dr Dre down as a fitness fan, but the headphones he’s designed for sweaty gym sessions are seriously impressive. Expect powerful, weighty and dynamic sound, then be pleasantly surprised by the in-line mic and three-button iPhone remote. Price: ~$300.

Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10vi

null

Offering audio that’s full-bodied and punchy, with excellent levels of detail, the 10vis will stay firmly nestled in your lugholes thanks to a shapeable over-ear band. With phone controls on-hand , they’re a marvellous choice for affluent iPhone owners. Price: ~$600.

Bose QuietComfort 15

null

Bose’s latest long-haul headphones are its finest yet. Wearing a pair is as comfortable as binding pillows to your head with silken thread, and both sound and noise cancelling are exemplary. For a louder, more rocking listen, try Monster’s Beats Studio. Price: ~$450.

Shure SE535

null

Your eyes don’t deceive – that is how much Shure’s flagship three-driver IEMs cost. They look and feel it, though, with a thick, replaceable cable that attaches to the buds via articulated joints. And the sound? Unbelievably detailed, utterly uncompromising. Price: ~$750.

Sennheiser PX310 BT

null

Here we have an excellent pair of noise-cancellers that are a significant step above ordinary budget headphones. Smooth, crisp and balanced sound along with Bluetooth capability and a powerful enough battery make this a winner. Price: ~$550.

AKG K701

null

With a swanky headphone amp, these reference-quality , openbacked headphones create a sound to rival hi-fi speakers ten times the price. Got more dosh? Try the supremely revealing Sennheiser HD 800s or breathtaking Grado GS1000is. Price: ~$450.
