Headphones are currently one of the hottest categories in consumer electronics with a huge variety to choose from. Often it’s a difficult process to find what’s best in each sub-category of headphones and well as in each price range of headphones. Vann’s list spans a wide selection of types and prices for headphones. A full assortment of headphones are available on

Vann’s first choice was the Denon AHNC800 OVer-the-ear noise caceling headphones. According to Vann’s Headphone Buyer, Kevin Elliott, “these are the gold standard in over-ear noise canceling headphones.” The Denon AHNC800 over-the-ear headphones use a large, 42mm Neodymium magnet to create a large frequency range, and hybrid material housing make sure the sound doesn’t take on unwanted coloration. Two microphones built into the outside and inside of the headphones allow them to analyze noise both within and without to generate canceling signals, making sure that the sound one hears is only the sound coming from the headphones. Finally, comfortable soft protein leather ear pads, and headphones modeled in 3D to best fit the contours of a users head make sure one can listen for hours.

“If you’re searching for a set of headphones with great consumer reviews you have to check these out” said Kevin Elliott,’s headphone buyer. He was referring to Vann’s second choice of the Klipsch Image X10i In-ear headphones/headset with 3-button remote. These headphones are one part reference-quality headphones and one part advanced, iPod-compatible headset. They feature a high-performance Klipsch design that includes full-range, bass-reflex micro-speakers in each of the Image X10i’s earpieces to serve up exceptionally full and dynamic audio, as well as a three-button in-line control with built-in microphone that allows for hands-free calling and seamless integration with the iPods voice-activated functions.
