Taking a normal pair of headphones and making them wireless isn't that big a deal. Taking the most popular headphone in the world and adding wireless? Now we're talking. Beats Solo2 Wireless Headphones are, as you'd expect, a Bluetooth-capable update to the streamlined, balanced Solo2. They allow you to take calls, skip songs, and change the volume right from the ear cup, and the built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 12 hours of playback. Should you run out of juice, it's no big deal — just plug in the included RemoteTalk cable and jam on. Available in black, white, blue, and Verizon-exclusive Red.
Sharing old-fashioned headphones is easy — just plug in a splitter and start the music. Sharing music wirelessly? Not so much, unless you're using Wearhaus Arc Headphones. Thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX and a dedicated app, these headphones can allow multiple people to jam along to the same song, with excellent audio quality provided by 40mm dual diaphragm drivers and memory phone earpads that provide great noise isolation. Arc users around you can see and join your broadcast via the app, and even make suggestions on what to play next — and while the built-in battery lasts for up to 16 hours on a single charge, they also come with a standard 3.5mm aux cable for those times when a charging port just can't be found.
They're best known for their higher-end car audio gear, but obviously, Alpine knows what sounds good — so it's no surprise that these Alpine Headphones are serious sonic contenders. They feature twin high-performance drivers with internal amps and DSPs for terrific sound, Full Frequency Immersion technology that mimics the experience of listening to music in person, and Bluetooth LE for pairing with a companion app that lets you make EQ adjustments on the fly and automatically scans and organizes your music library for hassle-free listening. Perhaps just as importantly, their diamond-shaped earpieces and stark black or white designs ensure that they're something you'll actually want to wear.
