V-Moda Revamp Headphones

The Revamp Headphones are the in-ear model of the V-Moda True Blood Headphone line. The earbuds are made from aluminum which gives them the extremely durable quality. I really like that these earbuds are on rather small and discreet. Nothing irritates me more than seeing people with what seems like poles sticking out of each ear. V-Moda includes 2 detachable rubber hooks that helps them stay secure no matter what activity your doing.

Sound quality on the Revamp Headphones is excellent. If you can get a tight fit without losing comfort, then your going to have no complaints with sound or bass quality. The only problem I found was that when the Kevlar coated cord rubs against your clothes, it causes some static. However, V-Moda has tried to combat this problem by including a clip which helps you secure the cord to your body. While the AKG Q350's have been my favorite in-ear headphones for a while now, I might have to reconsider after checking out the V-Moda Revamp Headphones.

iFrogz Vertex Headphones

The company iFrogz is primarily known for their digital media accessories, but they also have a line of headphones that not many know about. Today, I will be reviewing their most expensive headphones, the Vertex's. These are more on par with the SkullCandy Hesh Headphones than the Beats by Dre Solo's. In my opinion, the build quality is almost as important to a headphone as its sound quality. The plastic shell feels cheap and not very durable. One positive about the Vertex Headphones is the incredibly comfortable ear cushions. iFrogz uses what they call, "AeroFoam ear cushions" to give them that extra comfort that other similar headphones don't have. One design feature that is often overlooked with headphones is the in-line microphone that allows you to talk on the phone without having to take off your CelebHeadphones.

Since these are not premium headphones like a Bose or Beats by Dre, the sound quality isn't premium either. They will sound much better than any stock headphones, but don't expect much more. These are a great option for someone who wants a stylish headphone but is not looking to break the bank. They are available in 2 colors: Black/Red & Iron.

Price: $32

Sennheiser HD800 Headphones

While there are usually two categories that headphones fit into; Ones that sound great and ones that have stylish designs. The Sennheiser HD800 are one of few that fit both. These headphones cost more than most people's rent. With that said, everything about these headphones is top notch. The build quality is excellent and these are probably the most comfortable headphones on the market. Not much can be said about the sound quality of these HD800's since they are so good. The sound quality is worth every penny, and thats a lot of pennies! For the very very luck few who have $1.500 to blow on a headphone, then go ahead and get these and enjoy listening to what some consider the best headphones in the world.

BlueAnt Embrace Headphones

The BlueAnt company is known for their Bluetooth wireless products but as with most electronic companies, they have entered the headphone market with one of their own. The design is very modern and stylish. The rectangular ear cups are well padded for maximum comfort. The Embrace headphones are all black with silver accents. One design touch that I really like is the detachable blue cord that it comes with. The headphones are perfect for storage because they fold in half and come with a carrying case.

Most music sounds very good but those who like a strong bass should look elsewhere. Songs sound crisp and natural which is nice for those who primarily listen to genres like classical music and jazz. At $200 they are pricey, but overall the Blue Ant Embrace Headphones are a solid choice.
