Best Wired Headphones

We’re back at it again, this time rifling through the retailers to find the best wired headphones in 2020 to review for your convenience. A wired headset can actually provide a much better audio signal because of the direct device-to-device method of sending the electrical signals. This can mean that a cheap wired set is a much better investment than a cheap wireless set, although Bluetooth comes in leaps and bounds with cheaper chip development.

We’ve been looking at an armada of headphones lately, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to see a few familiar faces in the mix as we determine the features that put our selections above the rest.

Best Wired Headphones

Given the range of needs, we have chosen our top ten contenders for very different reasons, as each one is suitable for specific functions, so expect to see a good mix of sports, travel, home listening, computer headsets, and monitoring sets.

Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones, Black

$69.00 $99.00

To get the ball rolling we have an Audio Technica set. The M30x model is in the middle of the M series and we think it is a mid-range representation of the bar setting possibilities the series is blessed with. They have a single-sided straight wire and a strong collapsible design, with mounted swivel ear shells they can only move 15 degrees which gives them more stability than some collapsible designs. Their foldable nature makes them more portable, which is important for storage and transit.

They have high-quality padding and are beautifully designed and exceptionally well made. They are equipped with highly capable 40mm diaphragms driven by neodymium and have a high power output. They deliver full-range audio with epic dynamics and are ideal for tracking and mixing. They also house the company‘s own CC voice coils.

Audio Technica ATH-A1000Z Art Monitor Closed Back Dynamic Headphones

Last update was on: 2020-11-25 9:55 am

Nevertheless, ATH-A1000Z makes a big impression of a demanding pair of high-end looks. So much so, in fact, that you might as well forget it when you think about playing MP3 tracks via your iPhone. These guys need a good running in, a decent amp or DAC, and something more like CD quality before they reveal their true colors. Behind the large sailor, aluminum cups are two 53mm dynamic drivers, hand-mounted in Japan, which are admirably held in place with a simple yet effective magnesium alloy frame and padded wings that keep everything in place.

It’s not the most flawless system, but unless you’re a true Conehead you shouldn’t have a problem. Because it’s a closed-back design, it doesn’t offer the same extensive soundstage as some others, but on the positive side, it also doesn’t leak as much sound, making it a better choice if you don’t live alone, or want to leave the house occasionally. Overall, this is one of the best wired headphones.
