InnerFidelity Top Ten Headphone Gift Guide
We'll start with the least expensive and work our way up.
1) Porta-Pro ($49)
A classic in the world of headphones, and for good reason. The PortaPro is inexpensive; packs up small; is light and comfortable; comes with a great life-time warranty; and sounds absolutely terrific. A great little backpack, kitchen-drawer, kids-in-the-car headphone.
2) Creative Aurvana Live! (~$65)
The very well regarded Denon AH-D1001, now reincarnated as the Creative Aurvana Live!, is one of the best sounding, sub-$100 headphones. A great gift for the music lover. (But not a big bass headphone for the hip-hop/dubstep crowd.)
3) Spider Realvoice ($89.99)
Designed with the intention of sounding great with vocals, the Spider Realvoice delivers on that promise and more. Gently warm and inviting, but with plenty of slam when needed, these will isolate from the din of the world, and take the music in mind where it wants to go.
