Here are the best headphones and h/p amps you can buy in 2023

Headphones are not only a great way to enjoy music, but they're also a relatively inexpensive way of making a huge step up in audio quality. There are many types of headphones to choose from: in-ears, over-ears, wired, wireless or noise-canceling. So which style should you invest in?

If you want a pair for home use, to plug into your hi-fi system or portable music player, then a pair of wired over-ear headphones are best. You'll then have to choose whether you want an open-back design (which leaks sound but offers sonic advantages) or the more typical closed-back style (which isn't leaky).

To use with your smartphone on the go and traveling, though,  you'll have to decide whether you want the uber-portability of in-ear earbuds or on-ear closed-back or noise-canceling
