Your Picks For The Best Headphones

Originally published on Wed April 24, 2013 11:59 am

We got a lot of great suggestions when we asked readers to tell us their picks for the perfect pair of headphones last week. We also learned a lot. For example, you all know way more about this than I do.

Another thing I learned is that the kind of perfect headphones I'm looking for probably don't exist. I want ones that solve everything: ones I can wear at my desk or at the gym; that sound great, are wireless, super comfortable, with a built-in mic and controls to use on my phone.

It seems every suggestion we got required some sort of sacrifice: comfort for sound, sound for functionality, etc. That said, here are five of the ones most mentioned or "liked."

Keep the suggestions coming. I've discovered several pairs I want to try out based on your comments.
