Buying someone else headphones is often easier said than done. Audiophiles are a fickle bunch and even kids know exactly what type of brand/sound they want these days. These headphones I’m recommending run the gamut in affordability ($25 to $1,945) but they all offer something distinctly unique and refreshing.

As a general rule, buying headphones online is probably not the best move unless you or the recipient has had a chance to try them out. That being said the pairs in this list are all great buys that I can vouch for.
