Marco Arment’s Mega Review of Portable, Closed Headphones

Send Article to a Friend

Overcast developer Marco Arment wants to find the perfect pair of headphones, and in the service of that quest, he has acquired and reviewed 19 pairs of portable, closed headphones to identify the best in that category.

The winner in both sound quality and comfort might surprise you, as it was one of the least expensive models tested.favicon follow link

It may have been one of the cheapest when he wrote the review, but it jumped from $200 to $330 right around the time the review was posted.
