Whether you’re a San Francisco audio systems buff or a sufferer of Soft Sound Sensitivity Syndrome (SSSS), you want a fantastic pair of headphones that can meet your needs without breaking your bank.

Sennheiser MM-500X

Audio technology has diversified and improved awesomely over the past ten years. You can find great tech from trusted names like JVC, Sony, Yamaha and Bose as well as cool products from lesser known (but still venerable) brands.

Noise cancelling headphones. These include many top-end Bose models as well as the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC — allow you to read, work, and recreate in peace. You no longer have to listen to a co-worker chomp down on a cheeseburger or listening to that screaming toddler in row 21. Noise cancelling headphones are getting better and better at blocking out annoying ambient sound.

High-quality earphones. Units like the Sennheiser MM 500-X, the AIAIAI TMA-1 studio headphones and the Yamaha EPH-100 offer dynamic features and balanced performance.

Home theater/studio use headphones. If you’re looking for great detail, balance, sound quality, and reproduction, JVC and Yamaha both have excellent products for home theater use. You can also try Harman Kardon CL and Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones, which offer cool looking designs, good balance, and excellent detail.

Confused by all your earphone choices? What’s best for your San Francisco home audio setup? If you want a “good enough” set of earphones for your home theater system, most of the options we discussed above (and dozens more) can fit the bill.

  • But how should you choose?
  • How do you price headphones right?
  • How should you know which features you want and which features are superfluous?
