Most New Year’s resolutions tend to relate to health and fitness, and there’s nothing that’ll help you push through the pain barrier and shed those pounds like a bunch of pumping tunes. Maybe some sweat-proof in-ear headphones are in order.

Or maybe you’ve resolved to get back into music and some serious home listening. If that’s your plan, a fresh set of open-backed wired over-ear headphones might be a good idea.

It’s a great place to shop if ‘cheap and cheerful’ is your headphones mantra.

Choosing a headphone deal

As we alluded to in the intro, there are a number of reasons to buy a new set of headphones. And those reasons will determine what they look like and, to a certain extent, how much they cost.

Are you after a set for serious home listening? You might want to look at some of the costlier over-ear varieties, and you should probably consider the wired models first.

Do you want some motivational tunes whilst out running? Then take a look at some wireless earphones – and best make them weather and sweat-proof.

Want to escape into an audio bubble on your daily commute? We’d suggest looking into closed-back on or over-ear headphones, ideally wireless and with some kind of active noise cancellation onboard.

Finally, it’s time to consider your budget. This will limit which of these features you can get, but it will also set some firm boundaries for you to operate within. Often, however, spending just a little more money can carry you to a whole new level of audio quality. This is where research – and in particular TrustedReviews – matters.
