Best Headphones Brands

If you’re in the market for a new pair of headphones, it can be hard to know where to start. Even if you’ve narrowed down your needs to something fairly specific, like earbuds for sports, how do you know what’s the best earbuds brand? While the biggest brands tend to make something for everyone, some brands focus more on specific groups, like athletes or professional musicians. While you can get a decent pair of headphones from most brands these days, there’s no hard and fast answer to what’s the best headphones brands for you. Each headphone company has their unique way of doing things, even when they cater to similar needs. That said, some brands stand out among the rest.

Best Headphones Brands

1. Sennheiser

Sennheiser is easily one of the most popular headphone brands. They are well-loved and have a long history with plenty of great products that came with years of research, trial and error, and listening to what buyers want.

The company was created in 1945 by Dr. Fritz Sennheiser, and its leading breakout product was an omnidirectional dynamic mic. From there they branched out and began creating other products, which leads us to their headphones.

Sennheiser is known for creating audiophile-quality headphones but keeping them priced more affordably so that those with smaller budgets can still enjoy them. I would say they are in the low to the upper mid-price range, anywhere from $200 to $700 or so, but this also depends on the product and how new it is.

2. JBL

JBL is another company that has plenty of top-end headphones and other equipment that will provide you with hours of enjoyable listening. JBL’s headphones are more tailored towards mass markets for recreational uses, but they also make studio monitors and subwoofers meant for professional use

JBL has been up and running in the music industry for over 70 years, and they first started out making PA systems and improving speaker designs. JBL is easily one of the most innovative headphone companies out there, and their philosophy sums up as ‘If they need a part that doesn’t exist, they make it.’ This philosophy has led to some really great inventions on their part, like the Image Control Waveguide and Slipstream port on their subwoofer.

3. Sony

Sony has a very wide range of models, from cheap wired earbuds to top-of-the-line premium noise canceling headphones. Whether you need something for mixing tracks in the studio or riding the subway to work, Sony likely makes something for you. That said, a number of their models are rather unremarkable, and with such a large selection, some models in their lineup feel redundant. Their high-end Bluetooth headphones are among the best we’ve tested, especially since their great companion app provides more customization options than most brands.

4. Audio-Technica

Audio-Technica is a Japanese brand that produces a wide range of different headphone models. They’re best known for their M-Series lineup, which includes closed-back studio headphones geared towards professional use. There are quite a few models in this lineup, so it’s not always apparent which models provide the best value for the price. That said, their top performers excel when it comes to build and sound quality, and are easy-to-recommend for all different types of audio professionals. They also make noise canceling headphones, as well as Bluetooth models for use on-the-go, although we haven’t tested as many of these.

5. Beyerdynamic

Beyerdynamic is one of the world’s oldest headphone manufacturers, and many of their products are still made in Germany to this day. Like Audio-Technica, they have a wide range of products, but their most popular models are designed for studio use. They’re well-known for making solid, durable headphones that feel built-to-last, with a keen eye for sound quality. Their open-back models tend to have less bass roll-off than other open-backs we’ve tested, but they still tend to sound quite bright. Those sensitive to the higher frequencies sometimes find Beyerdynamic headphones to sound too sharp or piercing on sibilants like ‘S’ or ‘T’ sounds, but this can vary from person to person. All things considered, the brand still makes very good models for critical listening overall.

6. Plantronics

Plantronics have been at the forefront of mobile communications for decades. While their roots are in the aviation industry, they’re arguably best-known for their Bluetooth wireless business headsets. They also make several wireless consumer products. We’ve yet to test their full lineup; however, the models that we’ve tested are very well-rounded, providing good value for the price overall. Like JBL, they tend to have great Bluetooth features and impressive battery performance. They also generally sound very well-balanced, but their companion app doesn’t provide many customization options. They also tend to make pretty bulky designs that aren’t always the best-built, but they still feel reasonably durable for the price.
