    With the summer months on the horizon, it is time to look for the perfect pair of holiday headphones. Whether you want to drown out noisy kids on the plane, or relax with some tunes by the pool, we have you covered with our top 10:

    Lets start with the What HiFi award winning SoundMAGIC E10c, these offer superb balanced sound with a little boost down low. Pair them with some Blackbird foam tips and drown out those pesky kids.

    If you prefer on-ear headphones then take a look at the Pioneer SE-MJ503T-K, folding and portable, they offer a slightly bass oreinted sound in a neat package that is sure to get your toes tapping.

    Now if you are looking for a slightly sleeker, more executive looking in-ear headphone, take a look at the Oriveti Basic, with its aluminium housing and incredible build quality these will last you a long time. They offer a warm, organic and fatigue free listening experience.

    Next up are the Fostex TH-7BK, from the well known studio brand come a consumer model with a closed back design that effectively blocks out unwanted noise, they offer a very detailed and clean sound, perfect for those that want high quality sound without the massive price tag.

    If you want to get rid of those pesky wires, check out the SoundMAGIC E10BT, the bluetooth version of the E10 has all the quality of the renowned E10 but now in Bluetooth, perfect for those more active listeners.

    For under £100 the Pioneer SE-MS7BT offers a very crisp and precise sound in an over ear, Bluetooth headphone. These are a steal for the price and blow the competion out of the water.

    The recently released Sennheiser Momentum HD1 In-Ear Wireless are sure to get you dancing around the hotel room, with their bass lead sound that does not sacrifice clarity, they are sure to keep you upbeat during your holiday.

    My personal favourite Bluetooth headphone is up next, the Bowers & Wilkins P7 wireless, they don't have any fancy noise cancelling features, instead they focussed on the sound. It does have a bit of a bass boost, but they retain clarity throughout and the build quality and looks are sublime.

    For those of you who are active or need the best isolation, grab a pair of Snugs tips, they are tailor made to fit your ears and model of headphones. Alternatively you can order them with a pair of headphones.

    If you are looking for high end sound in a portable package, the Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd Generation offer exactly this. They look fantastic, and sound superb with a very balanced and detailed sound; and a soundstage much larger than most closed back headphones, these really are top of the line.

    So there we have it, the top 10 holiday headphones. Please feel free to comment and ask any questions about any of the models above or others you are interested in.
