For the audiophile, only the best can be bought for those crisp yet bass-filled beats.
However, that also means you might break you bank buying expensive headsets for your loved ones. But luckily for you, we've also included some decently priced offerings in our holiday gift guide from the music world that don't compromise sound quality.
Oontz Curve Ultra-portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - $29.99
The cleverly named Oontz Curve Ultra portable wireless bluetooth speaker is probably the cheapest device on this list but it doesn't mean it's cheap quality.
At just seven ounces, this little speaker still has a lot of oomph when it comes to sound, plus it's easy to use and nice to look at.
Bose QuietComfort 20i - $299
Bose QuietComfort 20i (with the "i" standing for the Apple version) in-ear headphones are definitely a must for the audiophile in your life, if you have $300 to spend.
But heart attack inducing price aside, you really get what you pay for - amazing noise canceling tech and incredible sound added to the fact that the QuietComfort 20i is also really quite comfortable.
There's also the neat "Aware Mode" feature which is designed to help you be able to hear important things that the noise canceling may drown out.
Jawbone Mini Jambox - $154.62
The Jawbone Mini Jambox may seem a bit pricey but it's a well built, solid little speaker that's stylish to boot.
Like its larger brethren, the Mini Jambox is cast from a single piece of anodized aluminum, and available in a selection of nine different bright, vibrant colors, with five different patterns drilled into the grill across the front of the speaker.
Logitech Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - $179.99
Boy, that's a mouthful: the Logitech Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speakers and the price is a bit steep. But the 360-degree wireless speaker boasts a bold, immersive sound in a slim frame making it hard to miss.
The exterior of the speaker has a plasma skin that makes it water and stain resistant and also includes 5-hour rechargeable lithium batteries. What's more, when you get this wireless speaker, you'll get a micro USB cable and AC power adapter. Other colors include red, green and blue.
Klipsch Image One (II) - $69.95
This is the second edition of Klipsch's Image ONE headphones. The II's keep the same audio specs and performance of the originals, but with an added stylish new gloss-back to the headband, and a higher-end look to the back of the earcups and flat earpads (not cupped, as before) to aid noise isolation.
These headphones have a big, big sound. They're rated 16Hz to 23kHz, and have a 40mm driver. The bass rumbles nicely but the mid tones are a bit muddy, yet higher frequencies are preserved well without sounding shrill.
Razer Electra - $49.99
Probably the cheapest Razer product you'll ever see, these Razer Electra headphones are still decent, if you're looking to get them for a casual use - i.e. not your die-hard audiophile.
They can be used for both music and gaming - though there's no mic - but it does up their value a bit so you get more use for a low price. The Electra set is also comfy and provides enough bass (though it can be a distracting) and has good sound.
STREET by 50 Cent Over-Ear Headphones - $80.99 to $149.95
The only wired cans in 50 Cent's Street range, the STREET by 50 Cent headphones feature earcups that, while feeling comfy, are huge and fairly heavy.
The large and bendy headband 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. The ones pictured are the most expensive though you can get other iterations for $68.96 cheaper.
