Must-Read: The Best Headphones Around
Think about the last time you were on a plane. Or the last time you were working out at the gym. Or the last time you were in the car with your family on a long road trip and didn’t want to hear everyone argue over one another. Now think about what object, at those moments, is the best friend in your life and you could never do without. That’s right: Your music. And that music would be nothing without a way for it to get into your ears. That’s right: Headphones. Which is why it’s important to have a good understanding of what’s out there to get.
So today, to get you all ready for your weekend of kicking tunes in your ears, we’re heading over to Maxim, where they have a list of the 10 most badass headphones you’re ever going to want to stick in those earholes of yours. Among their fine selections, of which we agree wholeheartedly:
Sometimes the beauty of a headphone lies in what you don’t see—which in this case is anything. The handiwork of a professional audiologist, these in-ear wonders are practically invisible, and contain speakers so small they don’t block your ear canal, meaning you can listen to music and still hear what’s going on around you while skiing, running, or biking. If you’re not into “sports,” think of it this way: With earHeros, you can enjoy the complete musical catalogue of one Billy Joel while your Aunt Gladys drones on about her cats for three hours, and she’ll never be the wiser. Admittedly, figuring out exactly how to use them is way beyond our pay grade, but thankfully this video explains it pretty well.
Head on over to the link to check out the other 9, and also to the section of the Internet where you can purchase said badass headphones if you are so inclined.
