Headphone designs have to straddle two often-competing demands. On the one hand, headphone users expect their headphone units to deliver crisp, immersive sound that blocks out as much outside sound and noise as possible. On the other hand, they have to look great, be light, and be unobtrusive. Talk about a tall order. Considering how busy most people are, it is too easy to find flimsy, easy-to-break headphones that deliver great sound. At the other end of the spectrum, it is also easy to find headphones that make you look great, are sleek and ultra-modern, very light, and can take the daily punishment headphones must endure. However, these units’ sound quality often leave a lot to be desired. Make no mistake about it, headphone design is all about delivering people their cake and enabling them to eat it too. Not exactly easy, right? At the very least, it would be more than reasonable for someone looking for a heavy-duty, light, cool-looking headphone that delivers symphony-quality music to pay an arm and a leg for such a device. Well, if you have resigned yourself to this possibility-don’t lose hope. There is always the Bose SoundTrue Headphones On-Ear Style. If on-ear isn’t your thing, have a look at the SoundTrue Around-Ear Headphones.
