The new Custom One Pro offers some custom color options and is available for $249.00.
3. Focal Spirit One
Other headphones shown off at the CES 2013 are the Spirit One sealed headphones from French speaker manufacturer Focal. The Spirit One is designed to be used with smartphones and directly compatible with iPhones. It has an unusually smooth bass-midrange-treble tonal balance that makes similarly priced headphones. Moreover, the headset offers remote control functions on the headphone cable along with the ability to answer calls with a built-in mic. The Focal Spirit One sells for $279.00.
4. The 808 brand headphones from Voxx International
The new 808 brand headphones from Voxx International give high-performance audio at a reasonable price.

These full-size over-the-ear headphones also come with a protective travel case and multiple detachable cords. The 808 headphones will be available in three styles including black high gloss, black matte and white high gloss for $99.99.
5. Sennheiser IE 800
The Sennheiser IE 800 earphones are made of a smoothly-curved ceramic material, which has a hard feel closer to glass than plastic. They come with a real leather case and a selection of rubber tips. The earpieces, whose cable is part-removable, also use something called an Extra Wide Band (XWB) driver. The Sennheiser IE 800, the most expensive Sennheiser in-ear headphones, are available at carefully-selected retailers for $999.95.
6. SoundMagic E10
The SoundMagic E10 earphones sport a plain cylindrical driver housing, a downward facing cable, and a selection of silicone tips to get them to fit in your lugholes. These perfectly priced earphones sound loud, clear and balanced, with rich bass tones and plenty of natural character. Their cable, which is a standard 1.2m, isn’t braided, nor does it have a slippery finish. The SoundMagic E10 earphones sell for $34.95.
7. Phonak Audéo PFE 232
Selling for $599.00, the Phonak Audéo PFE 232 earphones are among the most expensive around but they have the sound quality to match. The devices include two separate sets of ear tips: three sizes of silicone and three sizes of Comply foam tips. The PFE 232 also provides detailed sound without any loss of bass or low mid-range thanks to a pair of balanced-armature drivers. Besides, the supremely comfortable Phonak Audeo PFE 232 earphones come with a 48-inch-long, tangle-resistant cable with an inline microphone and volume control.
8. The Panasonic bone-conduction headphones
The Panasonic bone-conduction headphones look like your mediocre pair of sound receivers at first glance. These bone-conduction headphones connect to a TV via the Bluetooth wireless standard and attach to your head like a normal set of headphones. However, the devices aren’t meant to go in your ears. They work like hearing aids by transmitting sound waves through your skull instead. The headsets will be available in a variety of colors in fall 2013 for an as-yet undisclosed price.
9. Ghost Bee
The Ghost Bee adds a new level of versatility to a typically straightforward headphone experience. It can stream music wirelessly to any Bluetooth-enabled device as well as blast audio directly from larger speakers when docked and charging. The Ghost Bee will sell for $179.
10. The Monster iSport Intensity In-Ear Headphones
The Monster iSport Intensity earphones provide decent sound but are not completely noise isolating, which is good if you want to hear what is around you while running. The devices, which fit securely and comfortably, are sweat-resistant. The earphones also have an open design, an Apple-friendly inline remote and microphone for making cell phone calls. The Monster iSport Intensity earphones are available for $99.95.
