Article 5: Headphones!
5. Sony MDR-1R
Sony has a clear winner on its hands in terms of the design on the MDR-1R. It's functional, lightweight and hence very portable. They lay flat and go straight into your bag, no problem.
In the audio department, some people may be disappointed with the bass response - it's not even close to Beats-level. These headphones are clearly intended for very vocal songs and nothing else.

4. BeyerDynamic Custom One Pro
Do note, however, that all of these customizable components have a problem: you need to pay a lot of money for them. While BeyerDynamic has tried keeping these as cheap as possible, they haven't really met with a lot of success.
They retail for $200 and are a great pair of headphones for the price. Kinda bulky, but works for me.

3. Logitech UE9000
These are among the best Bluetooth headphones ever made, and are a great option if you want solid sound without wires -- but you'll pay a high price for the privilege.
Good Bluetooth headphones are few and far between, in my experience, and the good ones are brutally expensive. The UE9000s have very, very good sound in wired mode, and the best I've heard to date over Bluetooth.
While there is room for improvement, it's simply due to the fact that the noise-canceling features can't be turned off in Bluetooth Mode - and that can get slightly obtrusive.

2. Audio Technica ATH-M50x
The only quip I have with these: there's no remote control for the volume/track skipping, which means you only need to pull your device out every time it starts playing Justin Beiber (just kidding?) and do the hard work associated with switching audio tracks.

1. V-Moda Crossfade M-100
What's better than having headphones with an inline mic and remote anyway!
All-in-all, the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 are the headphones you should be getting for the holiday season. They're really, really good.
