Headphone reviews

We test 13 headphones in the CHOICE labs, including models from Beats by Dre, Bose, Sennheiser and more.

Last updated: 8th May 2014

We review 13 pairs of headphones priced from $75 to $399 in the CHOICE labs, including on-ear and over-ear models, foldable models, those with removable pads, and headphones with built-in remote controls for iOS and Android.

Our product comparisons will help you decide which model is best for you. We score headphones on:

  • sound quality
  • whether they're comfortable to wear (even when wearing glasses)
  • whether they're easy to use.
