With hundreds of different styles of headphones on the market today, it’s often hard to pick a pair that you know will suit you whilst providing the best sound and value for money. Stylish headphones can often look great but lack base, depth, noise cancelation or balance which makes the whole experience bad and pointless, not to mention a waste of your hard earned cash.
Here we’ve listed the top 10 stylish headphones that offer the best functionality too.
1. Sennheiser HD 598
These over the ear headphones have a funky retro look to them that can be carried off by women or men. They also boast beautiful noise reduction, a great amount of bass and won’t break the bank but lack a carry case.
2. Sol Republic Deadmau5 Tracks HD
Another pair of on-ear headphones, they come in a burnt orange strap with bright yellow earphones, don’t worry if these aren’t your colours though – Sol Republic have plenty of designs to choose from.
3. Panasonic RP-HXD5WE
These headphones have a stylish minimal design and come in two colours – white and titanium black which is incredibly helpful when thinking about how your headphones will match to your outfit. They possess a 40mm large driver unit and soft synthetic leather earpads which provides you with high quality sound and comfort. Who knew Panasonic fashion headphones could exist? I guess it’s not a far cry after seeing Google Glass make its way down the runway earlier this year…
4. Shure SRH550DJ
These fashionable headphones have an ingenious design – rotating ear cups! This means that you’ll have supreme comfort along with flexibility. The worst part about these headphones is that they’re made from plastic which could mean they wouldn’t last as long as some of their competitors but they do have extremely good sound quality.
5. Audio Technica ATH-M50WH
This particular style comes in three colours – white, black and red so you can pick one to suit you much better than another run of the mill pair.
6. Panasonic Monitor Headphones
If you take a look at Panasonics wide range of monitor headphones you’ll be happy to see that they offer many colours based around this simple retro design.
7. Skullcandy Kopfhörer Icon 2
These Skullcandy’s are simple and come in a huge array of colours to choose from, for example – orange and yellow, black and gold, red, purple, green…the list goes on – so you are sure to find a pair you can’t live without.
8. AKG Reference-Class Over-Ear Headphones with In-Line Microphone
AKG have been providing great sound for quite a long time now and have always had stylish designs – these are no exception. They come in classic white and black/silver.
9. Bose AE2i
What headphone list would be complete without a pair of Bose headphones? These are simple, stylish and have a classic design that will stand the test of time.
10. Philips O’Neill Stretch
All of the Philips O’Neill headphones provide you with great quality sound, stylish designs along with ruggedness that everyone has come to expect from the O’Neill sports brand but this isn’t more true than with their Stretch headphones; simple, comfortable and stylish.
