Sony Ericsson MDR-XB450AP


These lightweight headphones are available in many vibrant colors and fit snugly on the ears. They work best with music with heavy bass (the bass booster is to thank for that) and lower mids, and can also work well with gaming consoles. Flat wires aren't easily tangled, and the swivel design allows for convenient portability.

Sennheiser HD558


These headphones have received high praise for their excellent sound quality, comfortable padding and design that prevents ears from getting sweaty during extended periods of use. While they are noise cancelling, people around you will be able to hear what you are listening to if you crank up the volume, so make sure Justin Bieber is coming in at appropriate levels.

These are studio quality headphones that can assure you are getting your money's worth. Be sure to grab an DAC/AMP combo to convert digital to analog output, resulting in crystal clear sound comparable to the voices of angels. They are excellent for gaming, movies and portable audio players (although they might not be terribly convenient to carry around). One user on Amazon described these headphones as "getting out of the way of the music".
