I’m a firm believe in quality > quantity. I don’t mind paying a premium for a great product if it’s going to enhance my life compared to something cheap. This applies to almost everything: Cars, mattresses, shoes, etc.
It especially applies to headphones. I live in my headphones at the office — It’s how I consume crunchy tunes, podcasts, YouTube videos, etc while grinding away at the content you see here on BroBible. Headphones get just as much use in my life as a laptop and cell phone, so I have some opinions on what constitutes good in the category.
I’m strictly an over-ear guy. In the past year, I’ve gone through three pairs, all acquired through Amazon — Bose SoundTrue Headphones, Sony XB950B1 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, and my most recent acquisition when I accidentally left my Sony XB950B1s back east over the holidays, Cowin E7 Noise-Canceling Headphones.
These things are the Chevy Silverado of noise-canceling headphones. They charge fast and the battery lasts forever — I’ve accidentally left them on for two days and they still had gas in the tank. They’re durable as hell if you run in them (…withstanding the brunt of my clumsy ass is no easy feat) and fit like a comfortable, breathable glove on your ears. The cushioning of the headphone is easily the softest I’ve ever felt.
Also: It’s a full noise-cancelling experience — You’re literally in another audio world when you have these on. Perfect for jammin’ out to Widespread Panic shows while in the middle of a noisy office.

Best of all: The price. They’re like a great pair of cheap, awesome sunglasses — Not too expensive to get mad about when you lose them or abuse them, but still light years ahead in terms of quality. I copped them a few weeks ago.
I can’t recommend them enough.
