It's no surprise to see Sennheiser included on a list of top five headphones. Sennheiser are famed for the build quality of their headphones and the Momentum pair is no different. The headphones offer the user an outstanding range, providing crisp cymbals and flowing basslines. The design of these headphones is also particularly interesting, stepping aside from the usual Sennheiser look.

 

These Sennheiser headphones are aimed at DJs, but there's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't make use of them in the home or studio.

 

4. Monster Diamond Tears Edge

 

If you've got a keen eye for design and style, you'll probably already be aware of these headphones from Monster.

 

The Diamond Tears range is quite unlike anything else on the market today, but don't let the nifty design mislead you - these headphones are built with more than just visuals in mind. They provide outstanding quality of sound and come with an in-line microphone, allowing users to make and receive phone calls using the headphones.

 

The Monster headphones are certainly the wildcard of the bunch, offering something a little different without compromising on quality at any stage.

 

5. Bose AE2W Bluetooth

 

We've already spoken about the quality you can expect from Bose headphones - these headphones are a great example of how successfully Bose are able to bring this quality to the wireless market.
