It can be daunting trying to decide which big headphones to get when the time comes to invest in some big fat bass speakers for your head. And it’s even all the more difficult to decide when there are so many celebrities endorsing so many products. We have our own favourite, in-ears by ACS.
First things first, while Beats By Dre are good, they’re more of a fashion accessory than necessarily the best on the market. So if you want to know which ones we think you should get, here’s our pick of the top five. Most of them cost less than the high-end studio pair of Beats, too!
1. Sony MDR7506
Best for: the all-rounder.
2. Shure SRH840
Best for: audiophiles
3. Audio-Technica ATH-M50x
Best for: your first pair of proper studio headphones.
4. Sennheiser HD-280 Pro
Best for: those always on the go.
5. Beyerdynamic DT 880
Best for: anyone with a bit more money to spend.
