In-Ear Headphones

Bowers & Wilkins C5 Headphones
By now, music fans have come to expect two things from a B&W product: superior sound and innovative design. The C5 in-ear headphones deliver on both fronts: Their unique "secure loop" design makes these some of the most comfortable headphones on the market. ($180, bowers-wilkins.com)

JH Audio Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors
JH Audio makes onstage in-ear monitors for artists like Aerosmith, Lady Gaga, Van Halen and Alicia Keys. Their JH16 Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors are among the best earphones ever made – if you have the $1,149 to shell out for them. The JH5s are also custom-fit and use the same technology as their much pricier siblings, and can be had for $399. If you want to hear music the way it was recorded, these are your best bet.
