If you are searching for an on-ear headphone, then you should read the following article. We have spending dozens of hours on online research, reading consulting reviews by both professionals and users. And we have pick some of the best and write them down on this page.

We have split the best headphones into 3 ranges
1. Over $140
2. $40 to $140 and
3. under $40

and here are the results.

Bose Soundtrue Headphone

Bose Soundtrue Headphone

1. Bose SoundsTrue ($149.95)

The reason, it has the balance of sound quality, extremly comfortable, lightweight and portability. This isn’t something many other headphone could claim. The ear pads are soft and pillowy, like little clouds on your ears. The headband is lightweight, and fit our panel’s varying head sizes and ear shapes well.

Samsung Level On

Samsung Level On

2. Samsung Level On (140.40)

This headphone aren’t as compact or light as Bose SoundsTrue, but they still soud pretty good. A fantastic option for non-iPhone users, as their remote controls the volume on Samsung products. According to users the sound of the Samsungs better than the Boses. The only issue is that they’re not quite as portable as our main pick.

KEF M500

KEF M500

3. KEF M500 ($299.99)
According to the professionals and users they agreed that these headphones were the best-sounding o the bunch, though you’ll pay almost twice as much as Bose SoundsTrue. It’s good for all kinds of music, from classical to classic rock.

Budget friendly pick ($140 to $40 )

Philips M1

Philips M1

1. Philips M1/28 Fidelio On-Ear Headphones ($109.99)

The Philips Fidelio M1s can currently be bought for far less than their original price due to the fact that they are being replaced in early 2015 by a newer (and likely more expensive) model. (At least in the US; overseas, the new model has been announced and will be available even sooner.)

BeyerDynamic

BeyerDynamic

2. Beyerdynamic ($68.54)

Beyerdynamic is as great as the $90 prices’s headphone, and they have ability to fold down to a relatively small size. It is also lightweight and comfortable. A great choice for someone looking for a secondary pair of headphones that can travel with them.

UrbanEars Plattan

UrbanEars Plattan

3. UrbanEars Plattan ($41.89)

They come in a myriad of fun colors (black, purple, red, orange, cream, and more), it has a washable headband, a comfortable design, and offer for good sound. The urbanears headphone can be literally bend like a pretzel without breaking them.

An even-cheaper budget friendly pick (Under $40)

Koss SportaPro

Koss SportaPro

1. Koss SportaPro Stereo Headphones ($23.29)

At $23.29, these are very inexpensive for what you get. They have a foamy little ‘80s style earpads with thin metal headband and it is not so great for classical or singer-songwriter music, but should be decent for most other songs. No remote, no detachable cord. But they’re small, light, and sound good. The most important, it’s cheap.

Sony MDRZX100

Sony MDRZX100

2. Sony MDRZX100 ZX Series Stereo Headphones ($18.97)

Look similar to the ZX600s, but the sound quality is nowhere near as stellar. Perhaps because of the price (just over $18) you can forgive the somewhat reverb-heavy and inexpensive sound, especially if you are listening to only pop, rock, and hip hop.

JVC HAS160B FLATS

JVC HAS160B FLATS

3. JVC HAS160B FLATS Lightweight Headband Headphones ($11.99)

It has a good sound and comes in lightweight design. The sound quality just wasn’t there, even for such a low price. The bass was bloated, the midrange muffled, and the high-end had a hissy quality to it.
