Sony PIIQ Smooth Headphones

The Sony PIIQ Smooth's are over-the-ear headphones that are the second most expensive in the PIIQ line. I really like the unique and fun design of all the PIIQ headphones and this one is no exception. The lime green color can be used by both genders and is stylish without being too much. One unique feature is that the headstrap is soft and squishy. The feeling is similar to a gel pad that is used with computer keypads. The great feature about these is that they are extremely lightweight.

Sony gave these headphones the popular flat cord, but the problem I have with it is that it is way too long. The cord is so long that it seems like it was made for DJ's, despite the fact that no DJ would ever be found using these headphones. The sound quality is what you can expect of a relatively inexpensive product. With it's low price point and young demographic, Sony is definitely not targeting audiophiles. However, because of the stylish look and modest price tag, the Sony PIIQ Smooth headphones are a great option. They come in 3 colors: Lime Green, Grey and Brown/Yellow.

Sakar Gummy Bear In-Ear Headphones

The Sakar Gummy Bear Headphones are one of the most unique products that I have ever come across. When worn, it looks like there are real gummy bears in your ear! While the gummy bear is not edible, Sakar advertises that the headphones have a real gummy bear smell (whatever that is). The sound quality is not good, but who cares when you have gummy bears in your ears. These are a great present for little children because they are inexpensive, unique and really fun.

Star Wars Coloud Headphones

For the most part, Coloud has a basic model headphone that they use for each of their products. The Star Wars line are no exception. Coloud has created 6 different styles for all the Star Wars fans out there. It seems like each character in the movie trilogy has its own designed headphone. The one exception in the Star Wars line is the R2-D2 edition, which is $10 more expensive because it is a more premium model headphone. For a full review of these headphones, click here.

Price: $39.90

Diamond Supply Co. x Matix Headphones

These headphones are a collaboration between Matix Clothing, the skater Jeron Wilson, and Diamond Supply Co. This is the first headphone released of their new line of audio products. These limited-edition over-ear headphones feature Diamond's well known logo on the earcups. There is also Jeron Williams' name and signature on the inner side of the headband. The color combination of aqua and black along with chrome accents is visually pleasing. Overall, the design of the Diamond Supply Co. x Matix "The Sound of Progress" headphones are one of my favorite.

Price: $70
Availability: Extremely Limited BUT I Found Them Here

Aerial7 Chopper2 Headphones

Aerial7 is a Los Angeles based manufacturer of stylish headphones and headsets. These headphones are used by professional snowboarder Heikki Sorsa and DJ Neil Armstrong, who is the DJ for Jay-Z. 
The Chopper2's are over-ear headphones that have a retro style look to them. These Chopper2 headphones were created for the urban hipster who wants great sound quality and a unique urban design that not many other people have. The headphones feel sturdy and not at all cheap, like some other I have reviewed. The headphones are on the large side but Aerial7 has made the most of the padding by making them extremely comfortable. Sound quality is great for the price, but not compared to some of the more expensive headphones on the market today. The Aerial7 Chopper2's are a good option for those looking for a headphone that very unique, comfortable and moderately priced. They come in 7 Color Combinations: Britt, Snow, Blaq, T.Knox, Hype, Soldier, Mojave.

Price: $70

SkullCandy Icon All American Rejects Headphones

The SkullCandy All American Rejects headphones are affordable and lightweight but also have many flaws. They aren't that comfortable and don't feel as secure as they should when they are on. The sound quality is also mediocre to say the least and the bass level leaves you wanting more. However, the modest price tag and the standard SkullCandy durability that their products are known for make these headphones a decent buy.
