The Best Headphones for 2015

Here is a our list of the best headphones currently available out there right now, updated for April 2015.

When it comes to choosing your headphones you need to take your time to make sure you are getting the right pair for your needs. We all love a high quality audio experience but clearly there are several factors that determine which way we lean when making the choice. These include budget and quality (value), brand allegiance and, of course, the use requirements.

Do you need in ear headphones for use with your personal media player or smartphone, and if so do you need an inline remote that works with it? Do you prefer an on ear headphone to an over ear? Do you need noise cancelling so you can block out the world whilst on a plane, during your daily commute or in a busy office environment? Do you want to use them wirelessly via Bluetooth?

The list is almost endless and clearly a list of great headphones can’t cater to everyone’s needs. However, below we have highlighted some of the best headphones available and have given you some quick notes on why they are great and in which use cases they are best used. Hopefully you will be able to find the set that best meets your needs so you can go on to get that fantastic audio experience we all deserve :)
