Didn't get those Beats by Dre you wanted for Christmas? Now is a great time to get a pair of cans, as we are seeing a number of Editors' Choice deals on these popular audio accessories. Grab those Beats for a $37 low, or Sennheiser over-the-ear phones for an amazing $25. These offers and more are in the best after Christmas headphone deals we've found.
Beats Mixr On-Ear Headphones
Store: Best Buy
Price: $149.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $37
Expires: December 26
Is It Worth It?: Towards the high end of Beats' headphone offerings, these were co-designed by David Guetta to be extra loud with club DJs in mind. And this price is a whopping $75 less than what Beats itself charges, and $29 under our October mention (which was bundled with a $50 Amazon gift card). These feature leatherette ear cushions and in-line control and mic cable.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Professional Studio Headphones bundled with the Tascam DR-05 PCM/MP3 Digital Audio Recorder
Price: $144 via $25 mail-in rebate with free shipping
Lowest By: $124
Expires: December 31
Is It Worth It?: We don't often see headphones bundled with other products, and then usually it would be a gift card or rebate. So don't miss this rare offer which includes a recording device — you should put your headphones to good use, after all! The headphones feature 45mm neodymium drivers, swivel earcups, and padded headband and include three detachable cables. The recorder features an editing function, microSD slot, auto level control, low-cut filter for clear recordings, and loop and variable speed on playback. It's powered by USB or two AA batteries (included).
Jabra REVO Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headphones
Price: $99.99 with free shipping

Is It Worth It?: CNET says that "superior comfort and design" set apart this headset from its bluetooth competitors. And this price is $25 below our October mention. They feature a noise-filtering microphone, Dolby digital, 240-hour battery standby time, earpiece controls, 3.5mm jack, USB, and detachable cord.
Sony MDR-1R Over-Ear Headphones
Price: $180.99 with free shipping
Lowest By: $38
Is It Worth It?: PC Mag calls these cans "a powerful, clean-performing pair of headphones that's comfortable to wear." And not only is this an all-time low price we've seen, and a current low by $38, but most merchants charge $298 or more. They feature 40mm drivers, a 4Hz to 24kHz frequency response, in-line microphone and remote, detachable cable, deeply cushioned earpads, and carrying pouch.
Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear Headphones
Store: VM Innovations
Price: $103.95 with free shipping
Lowest By: $26
Is It Worth It?: If you're in the camp that believes Beats just aren't worth the price (and you don't need that little "b" on the side), look to Sennheiser for high-end consumer headphones instead. This deal is $73 under our May mention. Features include a 110db sensitivity, 16Hz to 22kHz frequency response, 18-ohm impedance, iPhone-compatible cable with remote and microphone, and include a hard carrying case.
Sennheiser HD419 Over-the-Ear Headphones
Store: VM Innovations
Price: $24.99 via coupon code "H4HNX" with free shipping
Lowest By: $20
Is It Worth It?: Not only will these over-the-ear headphones recreate more natural sound than their on-ear counterparts above, they are much, much cheaper. That's $5 under our mention from a month ago. They feature neodymium magnets, 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response, 108dB sensitivity, and 4-foot cable.
