Top 10 Best Headphones/Earbuds for the LG G2

September 21, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

During LG’s event in NYC where they announced the LG G2, they spent a great deal of time telling all of us how great the audio is on the G2. Which it is really great. However, the US G2 variants don’t come with headphones or earbuds at all (the International version does). So we thought we’d find a few great sets of headphones to share with you.

10. GOgroove and audiOHM Ergonomic Earphones


These probably aren’t the best looking earbuds, but they do get the job done. They are engineered with SonusMAX sound so they can deliver deeper bass and clear highs. The earbuds also have ear gels which make listening to music very comfortable. With the embedded mic and controls, you are also able to take calls, making it completely hands free.

9. Beats Solo HD Headphones


Beats is a kind of controversial product. Some people think it’s just a marketing thing, while others think that it does make a difference. For those that like Beats Audio, you’re going to love the Beats Solo HD headphones. They do cost $200, but depending on the type of audiophile you are, you’re going to love them. They are also available in many colors.

8. GTMax Hot Pink 3.5mm Metal Stereo Headset


This one is probably more for the ladies. But for $2, you can’t really complain. These are some pink earbuds that also have a microphone inside. There’s not much too them, but definitely don’t expect Beats or Bose quality sound from these for this price.

7. Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones


Bose is one of my favorite headphones makers out there. I own a pair of their earbuds and have had them for a few years with no problem. These headphones are Bluetooth and noise cancelling, so if you want to ignore someone, these are great for that. The battery is said to last around 35 hours.

6. Griffin WoodTones Wired Headsets with Control Mic


I’ve actually reviewed Griffin’s WoodTones headphones a few months ago, and they were some of my favorite. These will cost you about $30. They are also backordered right now from Amazon, but they are some really great earbuds.

5. Beats Tour In-Ear Headphone


I actually own these. They are pretty good headphones except for the fact that they are tough to stay in your ear. Other than that the sound that comes from these headphones are really great, especially if you listen to music that has a lot of bass in it.

4. Skullcandy Hesh Headphones


Skullcandy is a brand that I’ve heard has really great headphones, I’ve just never tried them out before. These hesh headphones come in all kinds of colors and branding. Even some sports branding is available. They cost about $63, but I’m sure they are worth it.

3. iKross Stereo Earbuds with Microphone


Here’s another set of earbuds that are pretty affordable. They are available in Pink, Purple and Black for just $12.99. They also have an embedded microphone so you can take calls and not have to unplug your earbuds. Sounds good, right?

2. Bose IE2 Audio Headphones


These have been my main headphones for about 2-3 years now. And they still work and look the way they did when I bought them. So you know these are good quality headphones. These do not have the microphone embedded unfortunately. But there is a pair that do have Android controls and the microphone. Although they cost a bit more.

1. JAYS a-Jays One Matt


These headphones are a bit different from most. As they have a tangle free cable, mostly because they are flat and not round. It does have a universal microphone and controls on the headphones. Yet they are only $40.
