Mother's Day Gift Guide: Great Headphones

Mother's Day Gift Guide: Great Headphones

If your mom already has an MP3 player or iPod, but you want to get her something techie and useful, consider upgrading her standard headphones to ones with better function and sound for Mother's Day. Upgrading to a better headphone model will not only do wonders for her ears (anyone else suffering from the painful free in-ear headphones you got with your MP3 player?), but every time she goes to listen to music she'll think of you and how thoughtful you are. I've shared two of my favorite models below, but there are a whole variety of cute and colorful and even retractable models she'd probably love.

Sony Bud-Style Stereo Earphones

These light Sony earphones deliver great sound and are so comfortable she'll forget she is wearing them. They're small enough to fit snug in her ear, and will stay in during an intense workout. Get them here for $36.

Shure E3c Sound Isolating Earphones

The Rolls-Royce of headphones, these lightweight babies offer stellar sound isolation and crystal clear sound. She'll feel like a DJ without the huge dorky headset. Get them here for $199.

Do the Sony ones stay in better than the Apple ear buds?

Do the isolating ones work like noise-reduction? My mum totally needs noise-reducing headphones for the plane!

I've heard great things about the V-MODA Vibes...and they're cheaper than the Shures (supposedly quite comparable, too)!

My mom doesn't have an Ipod...which is why I'm hoping to win the one you are giving away!

My mom never uses her ipod (one that she won), but I could use a new set of earphones myself. The little white ones that come with the ipod hurt my ears after a while. Will have to check into the Sony model. Would love the Sure earphones, but they are way outta my price range.
