Headphones used to be a thing that people didn't care about, but these days you can't take public transport without being surrounded by commuters wearing all sorts of fancy ear-wear, from wireless headphones to noise-cancelling headphones.
There's headphones for sport, headphones that cancel noise, headphones that have wires, headphones that don't, headphones featuring the kind of bass that'll bounce your senses into the next postcode, and our favourite sort: headphones that are on sale.
We've combed HMV's massive summer sale to find the juiciest headphone deals on offer. These might not be the audiophiles' choice of ultimate jug candy, but they are the best bargains we've found and there are some great headphones under £100 on offer.
So save yourself a fortune, and glam up your head.
We hope you like bass. These Crushers deliver Stereo Haptic Bass that can be fully customised to your preference and how much you want to detach your synapses. The battery on these badboys also lasts up to 40 hours, and there’s a built-in mic to answer your phone. Not bad, eh?
Made from hard chrome for increased durability, these Beats in-ears are designed to eliminate outside noise and enhance your listening experience. What’s more it has an inline remote and mic to control your music and make calls, and four different fittings to keep them snug in your lugs.
Ideal if you’re one of those gym enthusiasts they have now, the lightweight design ensures not to weigh you down during intense workouts and the earpads are moisture wicking, to keep you dry. There’s also a tangle-free cable and inline controller for instant access to your music.
These are Urbanears’ first bluetooth headphones, and they’re very swanky. There’s a swipe interface on the ear cup allowing you to skip track, adjust volume and answer calls with a simple touch. The battery also lasts for up to 14 hours before recharging, which ain’t too shabby.
Jam-packed with the award-winning Beats sound, these on-ear wireless headphones last for up to 40 hours – and with Fast Fuel technology, a 5-minute charge will give you three hours of playback! The cushioned ear cups also buffer any surrounding noise, giving you a fully immersive sound.
These in-ear headphones are apparently made with "earth-friendly materials" including recycled plastics, recyclable metals, bamboo and Forest Stewardship Council-certified woods – which means you can rest easy in the knowledge you're saving the planet while enjoying their 8mm high-performance micro speaker. Win win.
It apparently took over two years to develop these slick looking badboys, which include Japanese silk, acoustic tuning filters and adaptive ear cushions in their build. No wonder their manufacturers call them "a seamless blend of balanced sound, lasting comfort and effortless aesthetics."
The Sennheiser PXC 550s manage to achieve that full-bodied Sennheiser sound we've come to expect, and are some of the best for sound you'll get at this price point.
These nifty, light-weight headphones come with 40mm neodymium drivers, engineered to deliver high resolution audio performance. Their shiny exterior is bound to impress lookers-on, too.
These earphones are unique in their ambition to "combine jewellery and function", making them, apparently, "the wireless bluetooth headphones you wear to turn heads." Very nice. That aside, they also deliver "a beautiful, balanced sound experience".
There are also great deals on turntables, bluetooth speakers and more in the HMV Summer Tech Sale.
