  1. gaming headsetTurtle Beach Ear Force PX51 Premium Wireless Gaming Headset
    Store: Newegg
    Price: $114.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $42

    Is It Worth It?: Not only are these available a decent price-low, but they were originally selling for $290! According to an IGN review, "The ability to natively work with a number of devices and deliver fantastic audio quality is exactly what you should expect from a headset at this price point, and that's precisely what Turtle Beach has delivered."

    They're compatible with PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and mobile devices. Features include Adjustable Dolby surround sound, dual-band WiFi, audio presets, Bluetooth, and up to 15 hours of playback.

    Store: Nordstrom
    Price: $64.96 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $65

    Is It Worth It?: There's no denying the fact that style is just as important to some music fans as audio quality, when buying new headphones. And these Polk Audio cans have that in spades. These headphones — which come in Black (pictured) and a retro Brown/White combination — sport attractive faux leather and contrast-stitching across the headband. They also feature pivoting ear cups, in-line 3-button control, and detachable single cable.

  3. Targus BluetoothTargus Bluetooth Headphones
    Store: Office Depot and Office Max
    Price: $19.99 with in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $20
    Expires: December 27

    Is It Worth It?: These Targus headphones probably won't wow an audiophile, but let's face it: $20 is a wicked cheap price for a pair of Bluetooth-enabled cans. Plus, these have been marked down by 50%, making them tied as the cheapest pair of Targus Bluetooth headphones we've seen. They feature a 30-foot wireless range.

  4. Monster InspirationMonster Inspiration Active Noise-Isolating Over-Ear Headphones
    Store: Walmart
    Price: $84.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $14

    Is It Worth It?: Despite being bulky, CNET raves that these headphones are not only comfortable, but have a good build quality, and offer impressive, rich sound with good detail and punchy bass. CNET's other complaint was the price, but that was because they paid $250 for them! At almost a third of that price, these active noise-isolating headphones are a standout pick. They also include in-line controls and a microphone so you can rock out, stop to talk to your mom, then resume rocking out, all without taking your phone out of your pocket.

  5. KlipschKlipsch X4i In-Ear Headphones
    Store: BuyDig
    Price: $79.95 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $10

    Is It Worth It?: If the above over-ear headphones are a bit too bulky for your on-the-go lifestyle, these in-ear headphones, also from Klipsch, may be a better fit. PC Mag writes that these bass-boosted headphones produce "clarity and brightness," without allowing the bass to overpower the rest of the sound. They feature balanced armature drivers, a frequency response range of 10Hz to 16kHz, and in-line music and voice controls compatible with select Apple products.

Those monster headphones above are the noise-isolating version, and not the noise-cancelling. Looks like Walmart's noise-cancelling are actually $190.99

Thanks for the great list though.
