Top over-the-ear headphones

Digit Expert | 22 Jan 2020

If you’re on the hunt for a good pair of headphones, you must first figure out what you’ll be using them for primarily. Are you someone who needs to make a tonne of calls while commuting from one place to another? Do you want to be able to hear each and every note while listening to your favourite song? Or are you planning to use these to watch TV shows and movies on your smartphone? The parameters for a ‘great’ pair of headphones change depending on your usage patterns, which is why identifying the same is a great way to start exploring the right options. Here are some of the top over-the-ear headphones that work no matter what your needs are.

Grado Prestige Series SR80e

The Grado Prestige Series SR80e offers a concert-like performance with a wide soundstage, making it an ideal pair for music lovers and binge-watchers alike.

Their overall sound quality is believed to be quite good, with decent bass and mid-range. However, they can sometimes falter during high frequencies. Grado headphones are known for their own signature sound that comes with a flat response, which should offer a purer listening experience than headphones that offer heavy bass. With a modern design aesthetic, these headphones have an open back and cushioned cups, making them fairly comfortable for extended use. They come with a mini stereo plug along with a ¼ inch adapter, making them fairly versatile in terms of connectivity options.

Audio-Technica ATH-M70x

The Audio-Technica ATH-M70x is the flagship model of the brand’s M series, with high durability and professional sound. The build feels quite premium and the pair has a fold-flat design that allows for easy portability and storage, which is perfect for users who want to travel with a single backpack filled with essentials. What makes it an extremely comfortable pair is the circumaural design that efficiently contours around the ear for a snug fit and sound isolation that works well even in loud environments, according to the brand. The 90-degree swiveling earcups add another ergonomic feature to the headphones, ensuring user comfort at all times.

V-MODA Crossfade M-100

One of the most appreciated features of the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 are the dual diaphragm drivers that do a decent job of separating bass from high and mid sounds. This makes them a hot favourite amongst audiophiles and industry experts. The sound quality on the whole is expected to be quite clean. These headphones come with a unique Cliqfold design that makes them not only highly portable but also quite easy to store in small spaces like a laptop bag or handbag. The design is supported quite well by the compact exoskeleton of the device.

Sennheiser Over Ear HD 820

If you are looking for premium headphones that offer unparalleled sound quality and noise cancellation, then you must consider the Sennheiser Over Ear HD 820. The headphones are not only equipped with the renowned Sennheiser Ring Radiator transducers, but are also fitted with a concave glass that looks great and offers high sound quality by allowing sound waves to bounce into absorbers. This tech should ensure that you get minimal sound resonance, with the resulting sounds being quite clean and pure.

The Sennheiser Over Ear HD 820 also comes with a premium build that not only feels a bit hefty, but also looks great. It has silver-cladded OFC cables, a metal headband that comes with dampening elements, and gold-plated plugs, all contributing to a very luxurious look and feel. With the glass on the ear cups and multiple metal components, these headphones have a distinctly steam-punk aesthetic, making them perfect for users who want to amp up their style while wearing a gadget that performs well.
