This week we’re talking about headphones, one of the largest, most diverse, hotly contested, and ubiquitous product categories we cover.

Back in 2012 Lifehacker ran a great Best Headphones Hive Five, but of course, there have been a whole lot of new models since then, and we want to hear about your favorites.

Lifehacker describes the category well:

When you want to rock out in private or just really enjoy the sound from your computer, phone, or music player, you’ll need a pair of good, traditional headphones. This week we’re talking about circumaural or supra-aural cans that go on your ears.

What about earbuds?

Looking for cheap headphones? Lifehacker has a fantastic article on that as well.

What about exercise headphones? Yep, we’ve got you covered there too.

And gaming headsets? Yep. Here ya go.
