With DJ Khaled becoming the latest entertainer to step into the headphone game, and Dr.Dre making a cool 3 million off his Beats by Dre invention it seems like headphones are the hot commodity in the streets. But lets face it, Dre and Khaled are able to invest into owning a headphone company, while the everyday blue collar person is investing on the headphone product itself, but the question is which of all headphones are the right ones to own? Headhones can provide a good sound thanks to noise isolation, but for truly impressive and immersive sound reproduction, on-ear or over-ear headphones are the way to go. While some sets of cans are simply too big to wear in public, others can prove to be top-notch performers. Still others are perfect for serious hi-fi listening at home. So, whether you're looking for portable, wireless, noise-cancelling or just an accomplished pair for home, here are the 12 best pairs of on-ear headphones to buy right now.
