So you just pre-ordered your new iPhone and are in the market for some really nice Bluetooth headphones? Well, here’s 5 great sets of cans that are widely priced. From affordable, kind of affordable, and audiophile affordable let’s run down the 5 headphones you might like to pair with that new iPhone.
The Master & Dynamic MW60’s aren’t the cheapest set of Bluetooth headphones on the market but they’re certainly among the best. M&D takes pride in not only the sound of their cups but the craftsmanship as well and the MW60’s score big on both points. Scoring a perfect 5 for sound in our review and a perfect 5 for battery life, these premium cups might be a very nice fit for that new iPhone. Perhaps the Jet Black iPhone paired with a nice Gun Metal pair of MW60’s? Currently on Amazon for $549.
Bringing the price range down several hundred dollars are the HoM Rebel BT on ear headphones. HoM makes some amazing cans of all sorts and sizes and we were impressed with their price/value ratio. While not quite as great sounding as the M&D… at this price it’s hard to argue. Also, if you’re a lover of big bass, the HoM Rebel BT’s will rock your world and thump your low end. These puppies are sure to pair well with your shiny new iPhone in gold adding to your bling. Currently on Amazon for $49.99.
Priced slightly lower than the M&D but significantly higher than the HoM’s, the Parrot Zik 3’s are really an amazing set of cups. With arguably one of the best noise-cancellation systems on the market, these things are well worth the $399. We gave them a perfect 5 for sound because they sound amazing and with the included app you have a plethora of sound customization options to choose from. While we would rank the M&D’s higher in sound quality, the Zik 3’s aren’t far behind. These would make any new iPhone happy. Currently on Amazon for $399.
Bumping down in price a bit but certainly not in quality and sound, the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless are simply amazing. If you’re looking for a middle of the road price between $100-$500, these $300 cups are a must look. We ranked the sound a perfect 5 in our review and these honestly compete head to head in sound with the Zik 3’s and are very near the M&D’s. The design is also premium and they come with an amazing hard shell case. These headphones would pair well with any phone not just the new iPhone. Currently on Amazon for $299.98.
Cheaper than both the V-Moda and the Parrot’s, the AKG’s nearly got a perfect 5 in our review. These on ear noise-cancelling cups gained that score by being one of the best in its price point. We would probably still pick the more expensive models for pure sound quality if there was a head to head. But the AKG’s sound quality and noise cancelling are really top of class for the $249 price tag. These are probably a safe bet if you’re looking not to break too much bank and still get amazing sound. Currently on Amazon for $249.95.
