Here at Major Hifi, we LOVE headphones and music in general.  So throughout our adventures in testing headphones, we invariably come across certain models that demand attention.  Our staff picks pertain to headphones that we believe perform above-and-beyond the rest, whether it's due to the price, your music tastes, or the technology involved.
