Anyone who has an iPod or any other MP3 players lusts after noise-canceling headphones. The trouble is that they are very expensive. The top of the line in-ear headphones from Shure cost a whopping $500, more than the most expensive iPod. Thankfully, this technology is becoming more and more affordable.

Just like all accessories, headphones change over time. Even though if you’ve been enjoying your own set for a while, there are always better sounding ones and better looking ones out there, unless you’ve invested quite a bit of money.

Everyone has the same dilemma when it comes to earphones: what to do with them when you aren’t listening to your iPod? There are a few choices, like bunching them up into a ball or wrapping them around the mp3 player, but none of them are good. This is by far the easiest way that earphones get broken. The Holeder Earphones are an ingenious design by Yoonsang Kim to solve this dilemma.

High end headphones are great, especially the over the ear type headphones. They enable you to hear the acoustics almost perfectly. The more you pay, the better the headphones. However, it’s not always the best idea to lug around your giant headphones. They don’t take the daily wear and tear very well and they usually don’t go in the rain.

Even though wicked sounding headphones are available, ear buds are the easier and more portable solution. No one wants to lug around a big ol’ pair of Sennheiser or Sony DJ headphones to listen to your iPod on the treadmill. Most of the time, iPods rarely crank out enough juice to power them up anyway.
