Updated on August 31, 2011

More and more headphones are coming out, with more and more powerful components. Many brands claim to have great audio features, but they fall short when playing certain music. The music of today requires a lot of power in technology to deliver the feeling the artist wanted when it was first created. It's hard to enjoy a favorite song with crazy bass (dubstep anyone?) when those cheap headphones you bought produce a hollow and soft sound. The loudest headphones deliver the quality that many music lovers seek in headphones and the purchase becomes an investment for those who are serious about their music. Many people want the best experience headphones can give them to listen to their music. And for a lot of people, that means being able to put those headphones on and drown in your favorite tunes.

The two most popular types of headphones are the big clunky over the head/on ear headphones and the in ear headphones, or ear buds.

These types of headphones may be relatively more inconvenient that other types, but they no doubt give the best music quality to the listener. They has also become a fashion accessory to many people with different bright colors and show off your love of music.

In ear headphones/Ear buds

They are the most compact type of headphones you can buy, making them perfect for people on the go a lot. They require you to put then in you ear canals, making outside noise very minimal or even "noise cancelling"

Which type of the loudest headphones should I buy?

Chances are you will end up with one of the two headphone types mentioned. Although if you want the best and loudest headphones for the best experience you can get with your music, you will want to go with the over the head/on ear headphones. This is only if you do not mind carrying them around and dealing with them on your head. They would be best suited for people who listen to music at home a lot or someone producing music. If you are a "listen to music during a commute" type of person, the in ear headphones/ear buds would serve you the best if you hate fumbling with things on the move.


Top 5 Loudest Headphones

Over The Head/On Ear Headphones

Sony MDR-V6

"The MDR-V6s feature soft oval earpads, with a circum-aural (over-ear) design to add extra isolation from ambient noise. A wide, padded headband distributes the headphone's weight over a wide area, which means reduced pressure for comfortable listening hours on end. A ten-foot cable means you can move around freely while listening at home, working on media, etc."


Sennheiser HD 25-1 II

"Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Headphones are closed-back, purpose-designed, professional monitoring headphones offering high attenuation of background noise. Capable of handling very high sound pressure levels and of extremely robust construction, these headphones perform exceptionally well in high-noise environments, example ENG, sound reinforcement, studio monitoring and audio equipment testing."


Shure SRH440

"The SRH440 Professional Studio Headphones are optimized for home and studio recording and reproduce accurate audio across an extended range. Impedance, power handling and sensitivity are all calibrated for professional audio devices such as DJ mixers, mixing consoles and headphone amplifiers."


Bose On-Ear

"Bose on-ear headphones feature proprietary Bose technologies that produce high-quality audio in this compact on-ear design. The unique TriPort® acoustic headphone structure provides excellent low-frequency output and helps create a wide range of audio from such small, lightweight earcups. There's no need to push buttons or adjust knobs, and no batteries are required. You just plug in and experience full-bodied, well-balanced audio that brings out the details in your music."


Denon's AH-D2000

"Denon's AH-D2000 High-Performance Headphones offer two signature sound-enhancing technologies. First is the latest microfiber diaphragm technology. Microfiber's smaller size results in a denser diaphragmatic material which increases transmission rates for better sound and higher detail, affording maximum presence of acoustic sounds with low distortion. In addition, a special acoustic optimizer adjusts sound pressure balance on both sides of the diaphragm to deliver dynamic bass sound."


In Ear Headphones/Ear Buds


"The Sony MDREX36V are a pair of passive noise isolating earphones. What this means is that a seal is created within the ear canal, to keep a reasonable amount of ambient noise out. The main advantage of using earphones to do this instead of full-size noise canceling headphones is that active noise cancellation introduces artifacts into the music, degrading sound quality."


Denon AH-C560R

"The Denon AH-C560R is a premium In-Ear Headphone offering exceptional performance and unique user features. These earpieces feature exclusive Denon audio technologies to deliver optimum sound quality and superior comfort. They also feature an inline remote with integrated microphone, allowing control functionality including voice recording with compatible iPod and iPhone models. The combination of sound quality and feature set is sure to enhance your listening and user experience."


Shure SE115

"Designed for music lovers looking to upgrade the headphones included with their MP3 players, the compact SE115 is a perfect introduction to the stunning performance of Shure earphones. Evolved from earphone technology road-tested by pro musicians and perfected by Shure engineers, the compact SE115 delivers a warm, detailed audio listening experience that’s free from outside noise."


Bose® IE2

"Bose® IE2 audio headphones set a new standard for sound reproduction that conventional earbuds can't match. Re-engineered from the inside out, they feature an enhanced acoustic design that helps music sound smoother and more natural. And its new approach to construction provides a more secure fit and improved durability."


Sennheiser CX 880

"These ear-canal, noise-isolating headphones use a dynamic speaker and a specially tuned transducer that reproduces a transparent, clear audible image. And you can keep your audio player in your pocket and still control playback volume with the included in-line rotary volume adjuster."
