Top Headphones to Buy [Holiday Gift Guide 2013]

By - November 2013

It’s that time of year again when it’s acceptable to spend all your money in the name of holiday cheer. Whether it be for you or a loved one, a great pair of cans is the way to most hearts. Music is a universal language and is best experienced in it’s purest state. Let’s face it we want them to be aesthetically pleasing as well.

Check out some of top headphones for this year based on our personal experiences here in the G Style office!

Sol Republic Air

tracksair_icewhite

We’re all big fans of Sol Republic around here and the latest addition to their line up hasn’t disappointed. With their supple, noise-isolating ear cushions you can enjoy your music in comfort for hours. Tracks AIR are USB re-chargeable and provide up to 15 hours of playtime on a full charge. Even though they are Bluetooth the kicker is the headbands will be interchangeable starting in 2014. Available now in Gunmetal or White.

New Beats Studio

StudioBeats

Wasn’t really a fan of Beats UNTIL I put these on. The new Beats Studio® is lighter, sexier, stronger, and more comfortable, with precision sound, Adaptive Noise Canceling, a 20-hour rechargeable battery, and RemoteTalk™. Completely redesigned, reimagined and reengineered sound. The best part for me is Adaptive Noise Canceling (ANC) lets you choose if you want just cancel external noise sans music. ANC only mode lets you drown out the world around you … so you can actually get some work done.

Sennheiser Momentum

MOMENTUM_Black_3sm

Sennheiser makes a gorgeous pair of cans. When you start getting up the price ladder into the world of premium headphones there’s a certain level of expectation with the basics such as usability, sound quality and comfort-ability. With the Sennheiser Momentum’s all those needs and not only met but exceeded. They have a “light and airy” type feel to them making them extremely comfortable even after extended use. Both cables twist and lock into place so the cord doesn’t accidentally slip out of the headphones.

Spider Powerforce

Spider Power ForceYou don’t hear a lot of hoopla about these cans but Oh Em Gee! they have to be one of the best over ears I’ve ever used. Some might be put off by their kinda clunky appearance, BUT the Spider Powerforce headphones are quite an impressive. Despite that they aren’t too heavy or light and the sound quality is excellent. These headphones are big on bass and they come in two options: Black leather with red stitching or White leather with gold stitching. My only complaint is I didn’t request the White/Gold pair.

Soul Electronics Loop

Soul Electronics Loop Loop from Soul Electronics was made for those of us tired of bulky headphones and looking for something lighter and still fashionable. They look very unassuming but the bass is beast and the mids and low are crystal clear. Packed with a universal one button controller (works on Android devices too I tried it :)) and a tangle free audio cable. The durable storage case seals the deal on this fashion forward ear candy. Even if your giftee has never heard of Soul Electronics they won’t be disappointed. Tell them these are from the same people that makes Ludacris’s branded headphones. Available in Black/Black, White/White and Turquoise/Yellow.
