Why have we rounded up five pairs of Editors' Choice headphones? Because within the privacy of a pair of headphones, you can experiment with music you don't know you love yet — like Cookie Monster death metal. Save $170 on a pair of audiophile-approved BeyerDynamic headphones, grab the Monster Inspiration cans at $51 off, and score a pair of earbuds for just 75 cents.
Is It Worth It?: I'll give you a moment. After you've gotten over the initial shock of paying almost $500 for a pair of headphones, we can talk about this insane deal on the limited edition BeyerDynamic T90 Jubilee. You'll save $170 on these cans, which are identical to the excellent 2012 T90s in every way but aesthetically. "An open-back design allows the user to more easily hear outside sounds and also produces more spacious stereo imaging than closed-back headphones," CNET's review of the original model explained. "The end result is impressive. The T90 delivers extraordinary resolution of fine detail, and since it's unusually comfortable, it's a pleasure to wear for hours at a time."
Is It Worth It?: Of course, open-back headphones won't do anything to muffle a noisy office. That's a job for the active noise cancellation of Monster's Inspiration headphones, available in Silver for just $99. That's a $51 savings on these headphones, to which Digital Trends gave an Editors' Choice award. Calling the Inspiration "absolutely on par with — and in some ways, better" than similarly priced models from Sennheiser and Denon, the reviewer concluded that "if luxurious feel, stylish design, and audiophile-grade sound quality are top priorities, the Inspiration need to be on your short list for consideration."
Of note, these headphones are new, but will arrive in a damaged box.
Is It Worth It?: For budget-minded music-lovers, the Noontec Hammo headphones are a solid investment at $68. Available in Black, Blue, Red, or White, these capable headphones feature a 5Hz to 30kHz frequency response, a gold-plated connector, and a foldable design at a $13 savings.
Is It Worth It?: Should you prefer an on-ear design, the Logitech UE 4000 are an $11 price low in Purple. (thedigitalguy via eBay offers them for a buck more.) These entry-level cans sport 40mm drivers, memory foam ear cushions, and in-line controls. A zippered travel pouch is also included.
Is It Worth It?: If price is the only factor you're considering, you can't do any better than the Vibe Color Tunes earbuds in White, Green, Red, Blue, or Black. Pick up a few pairs of these simple buds from your local Fry's at the ridiculously low price of 75 cents, and you'll always have a pair of backup headphones handy.
