Didn't get those Beats by Dre you wanted for Christmas? Now is a great time to get a pair of cans, as we are seeing a number of Editors' Choice deals on these popular audio accessories.

    Is It Worth It?: Towards the high end of Beats' headphone offerings, these were co-designed by David Guetta to be extra loud with club DJs in mind.

    Is It Worth It?: We don't often see headphones bundled with other products, and then usually it would be a gift card or rebate. So don't miss this rare offer which includes a recording device — you should put your headphones to good use, after all! The headphones feature 45mm neodymium drivers, swivel earcups, and padded headband and include three detachable cables. The recorder features an editing function, microSD slot, auto level control, low-cut filter for clear recordings, and loop and variable speed on playback.

This deal is $73 under our May mention. Features include a 110db sensitivity, 16Hz to 22kHz frequency response, 18-ohm impedance, iPhone-compatible cable with remote and microphone, and include a hard carrying case.
