8/4/2013 9:14:09 PM

Everyone from 50 Cent to Quincy Joins wants to lend their name to a pair of cans. We round up dive of the best.

Headphones have got seriously cool in the last year, and if your cans aren’t celebrity-endorsed then you’ve badly undermined your cool credentials. There are scored of headphones from big-name brands such as AKG or Scull Candy backed by some of the biggest rappers, singers and music producers in the world, but with varying degrees of success. We got our groove on with the biggest names in music.

1.    Skullcandy Mix Master Mike

Skullcandy Mix Master Mike

These headphones sport the name of Beastie Boys DJ Mix Master Mike and feature DJ-style rotating earcups. They’re comfy and have a mute button on the right earcup, as well as an input on each side so you can hook up to either one or attach a second pair of headphones. The sound quality is good, but it suffers as you crank up the volume

2.    SMS Audio Street by 50 cent

SMS Audio Street by 50 cent

The only wired cans in 50 Cent’s Street range, the SMS audios feature earcups that while squidgy and comfy, are huge and fairly heavy. The large and bendy head bank makes them feel rather loose, and sound is leaked before it even reaches your ears. What does get through sounds good, but the low-end isn’t as beefed up as the Beats model.

3.    House of Marley Destiny TTR

3. House of Marley Destiny TTR

These distinctive headphones are the flagship model from House of Marley, which prides itself on using sustainable materials. The TTRs are built from recyclable aluminium and stainless steel, but this does make them heavy. The audio performance is strong and the on-board noise-cancelling technology proves its worth. The cable is covered in woven fabric, so it stays tangle-free.


·         Price: $286.9

4.    AKG Quincy Jones Signature Q460

4. AKG Quincy Jones Signature Q460

Bearing the name of legendary producer Quincy Jones, these on-ear headphones are much smaller and lighter than any of the others here. They look plasticky, but padding on the earcups and the underside of the thin head bank makes them comfy to wear. Audio performance is excellent thanks to the closed-back design, which means little sound is lost.

5.    Beats by Dre Studio

5. Beats by Dre Studio

The king of celeb headphones has to be the Beats range from Dr Dre. The Studio cans feature noise isolation and are powered by a pair of AAA batteries. Available in a kaleidoscope of colors, the Beats will certainly get you noticed, although the shiny finish is a fingerprint magnet and the cable is annoyingly prone to tangles. The bass performance is second to none –fantastic for dance tracks or booming movie soundtracks.
