Top Picks For Behind The Neck Headphones
Designed so you won't mess your hair, or to allow for wearing a hat or helmet, behind the neck headphones have a headband that goes around the back of the neck. These are typically earpad type headphones and do not isolate from outside noise, which is good because these are great headphones for running, walking, and outdoor sports activities where it is necessary to remain aware of one's surroundings.
The headphones in this category all hover roughly around $50, and all have a similar level of sound quality. Grado, a New York based headphone company, makes the iGrado, a warm and smooth sounding headphone. The Sennheiser PMX100 and PMX200 are the most neutral sounding of the lot. The PMX100 is an open design so you can hear your surroundings; the PMX200 is sealed and provides some isolation.
