This is our favorable pick for the Top Headphones of 2017. So lets get started shall we..

What is the type of headphones is on this list?

On-Ear/Over-Ear Headphones, they are by far the best sounding sets for listening to whatever your ears desire, and also they’re the most comfortable.

How did we pick?

We have chosen the best sound quality, best comfort headphones in our list, sound is the most important criteria to enjoy whatever you listen to, and comfort also is a very necessary element in headphones part, therefore we choose them first and made headphones design as last, because most people would pick it like this way.

We have done many types of research and some tests to come up with this final list:

1. Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones

Design : 9/10
Comfort : 9/10
Sound : 9.5/10

Buy Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Headphones:

Quick Review:
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x are an amazing budget deal, many people recommend buying one of these over the other competitive headphones. And they are right, the M50x are truly great and promising headphones.

Every played sound throughout the M50x makes it enjoyable to listen. Their noise-cancelling isn’t that bad neither, even when people speak around you, it will not bother you that much.

You can use the headphones for years and you won’t see a difference in sound or in the frequency response. The M50x has changeable cable compared to the older M50 series, which is a good improvement, if your cable got distorted, you can use the other cables which you will find in the headphones box, they actually include 3 different cables to plug to the headphones, which is very nice.

These headphones are a great balance in everything, whether you look at the quality, design, comfort etc..
I totally recommend these if you’re new to the On-Ear Headphones.

Still, you can use separate cushions for backup, or if you didn’t like the original ones and find them uncomfortable you can try these nice cushions.

Comfort:
The M50x headphones are also very comfortable, and as for the clamping force, you can stretch the headband to make them expand enough to make them a lot more comfortable, as for the cushions they are great for small ears, but for bigger ears it can be an issue, because of the size of the cushions, you can still get a bigger cushions for them to make them even more comfortable as I mentioned in the Customization section.

Sound:
Sound quality is extremely good, they sound very clear, the bass response is balanced while keeping the mids and highs also sound great.
And they have an accurate frequency response.

2. Beyerdynamic DT 770 Professional Studio Headphones

Design : 8/10
Comfort : 9/10
Sound : 10/10

Quick Review:
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro are well known and famous for their great sounding, and comfort, with their incredible value.
The Beyerdynamic are made in Germany, which is known for their high-quality products.

What do ohms actually mean?
Since there are 3 different ohms to choose from for the Beyerdynamic let’s discuss what ohms actually means:
ohms are not an indicator of “quality” among headphones (which means higher ohms doesn’t mean better sound quality). A lower impedance headphone doesn’t necessarily sound better than a higher-impedance headphone. Low-impedance cans are easier to get louder and don’t use much power from the source your using it from. High-impedance cans put out more sound. Low impedance headphones will work better with portable phones and music players, and other portable devices.
And high impedance headphones need more power to deliver high audio levels, They also can be used with a more range of audio devices.
Basically, if you will stay home to use your headphones and use them with your computers then stick with a high-impedance 80-ohm or 250-ohm. If you want to use your headphones on multiple devices like phones, tablets, and other small devices then you should stick with the 32-ohm. You still could use the high-impedance headphones on your phone if you used an amplifier to make them function like they suppose to be.

Here is what you need to know about beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro:

Build Quality:
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro has a solid robust build quality, with great reliability.
The headphones don’t come with a plug-in cable, but they have a coiled connecting cable with mini-jack plug.

Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro are known for their comfort, you could use these headphones for many hours without getting bothered, the headphones only weight 1 pound, the cushions are great for small ears and big ears, you can still get a different cushions for them to make them even more comfortable if you feel they don’t quite fit or didn’t like them. You can try these out they can be even more comfortable than the original ones.

Sound:
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro has a really good sound quality. They produce accurate bass and not an overpowering bass, so if you’re a bass head you might need to look for different headphones such as the V-MODA M100. The Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro frequency response is neutral and very clear.

3. V-MODA Crossfade M-100 Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphones

Design : 10/10
Comfort : 8/10 with the XL Memory Cushions 9/10
Sound : 9/10

Quick Review:
V-MODA Crossfade M-100’s are very durable and comfortable, with a great sound quality, and the headphones are very portable, you can travel fine with them, using them in public is not a problem, they are good at Noise-Canceling.

The V-MODA M-100’s are the most stylish headphones, and the most armored on this list, you almost can’t break these headphones no matter what you do to them.

Here is what you need to know about V-MODA Crossfade M-100:

Build Quality:
V-MODA M-100’s are built like a tank, and the materials and the tests used on the headphones from their site are:

  • Virtually Indestructible STEELFLEX Headband
  • Steel Frame
  • Exoskeleton Form-Fitting Case
  • Tested Beyond Military-Level Quality MIL-STD-810G Test Standards
  • Durable Cable/Plug Bend – Cables and 45-degree plug can bend over 1 million times (100x industry standard)
  • Headband Bend – Steelflex can bend 10+ times flat
  • Environmental – High and low temperatures, humidity, salt spray and UV exposureThey are very similar to V-MODA Crossfade LP and LP2, the difference between them and the M-100 is the fact that you can plug in the cables from both the left and the right sides.
    And you can also collapse the steel that holds the pads for extra storage.

Customization:
The V-MODA M-100’s are the most customizable headphones on this list with 3 different base colors: Matte Black and Shadow and White Silver. You can choose from 44 different color shields made from steel, metal and also 14k gold and platinum. And you can choose a different looking design for your shield, and you can also change the color of screws, plus you can let V-MODA add your own logo to the shields.

You can also buy better cushions made specifically for V-MODA headphones with two different colors called “XL Memory Cushions“.

Comfort:
The V-MODA headphones are very comfortable especially while using the XL Memory Cushions. If you decided to buy them you should include the XL Memory Cushions in your basket, and you have to stretch the headband, so they can fit your head better.

I recommend getting the XL Memory Cushions if you have big ears, even though the XL is still more comfortable whether you had big or small ears, the original cushions could peel off and get really dirty after using them for over 3 years anyways, so you will still need backup cushions after all.

Sound:
The sound is made for “Top DJ sound signature. Precise bass, vivid mids, crystal clear highs, wide 3D soundstage.”
The V-MODA M-100 is based on a V-shaped, so the highs and the lows are great while the mid’s are still present but not as punchy.
So it depends on what are you listening to. If you want to enjoy the clarity of sound and feel some crisp effective bass, then these will be the headphones for you.
