Best Fashion Heapdhones of 2023

It’s Headphone Fashion Week here, at Audio46. And we’ve rolled out the red carpet to show off the trendiest and best looking headphones on the market this year. Being an audiophile store, we’ve also ensured that everything on this list sounds damn good too. Here are the nominees:

Under $200

Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2


Audio-Technica has always been one of the most stylish headphone brands on the market thanks to their huge popularity in the professional studio and DJ arena. The M50x is a classic, and you may have seen some fashionistas wear them around town. Now, the M50x has come up with a second generation of its wireless model. It looks and sounds just like the original wired M50x headphone. And it comes in some cool colors in addition to the classic black. A deep, punchy bass meets a sparkly high-end for a super lively sound profile that works great for modern and acoustic genres alike. And with a whopping 50 hours of battery life, the M50xBT2 is not only trendy, but a great bang for your buck.

You can buy the Audio-Technica M50xBT2 at Audio 46.

Best Fashion Headphones Under $200

Final Audio UX3000


Although Final Audio may be a little too well-known to be called a boutique brand, this Japanese company is mostly famous for its super high-end audiophile line of headphones. But they also produce more affordable headphones and earbuds for audiophiles on a budget looking to get top-notch sound without the crazy price tag. The UX3000 is one such model, offering versatile and easy-listening tuning, impressive detail and a spacious soundstage. And for the minimalists out there, its simple, yet sleek black design is a statement of elegance.

You can buy the Final Audio UX3000 at Audio 46.

Under $300

Grado GW100x Wireless


If you’re the hipster type and you know about audio, you will certainly be familiar with the Brooklyn based Grado brand. Known for their open-back design and retro appeal, these cans are some of the most natural and precise sounding headphones on the market. The GW100x works especially well for acoustic genres, like folk, classical and jazz. But to be honest, these cans can handle any kind of music you throw at them. The open-back design creates a spacious soundstage, while also allowing you to hear oncoming traffic when riding your single speed in the city.

You can buy the Grado GW100x Wireless at Audio 46.

Shure AONIC 40


Like Audio-Technica, Shure is another studio and stage brand that has been around for years. I like the AONIC 40 not just because it is so solid and well built, but it also looks dashing. The sound signature is perfect for those who listen to a wide range of genres. It avoids being too bassy, while still offering enough low-end to do justice to pop and other modern genres. You can also expect plenty of clarity and detail. Finally, you’ll get some decent noise-cancellation to drown out the chaos on your commute.

You can buy the Shure AONIC 40 at Audio 46.

Under $500

Bowers & Wilkins PX7 S2


The Bowers & Wilkins brand has become synonymous with audio luxury. And the PX7 S2 is no exception. With a warm, refined and cohesive sound signature, any music you play will sound fluid and sophisticated. But more important, they look incredibly elegant and come in blue and white, in addition to the standard metallic black. With effective ANC, and a super comfortable fit, the PX7 S2 is perfect for traveling or showing off while prancing through the city.

You can buy the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 S2 at Audio 46.

Yamaha TH-L700A


These cans sport a unique, sturdy, urban design. In fact, I haven’t seen anything quite like them on the market. Besides being attractive, they also come with some neat technological features, such as the switchable 3D mode, which allows you to play around with the soundstage, depending on whether you want an outside stadium like environment, or inside concert hall. With tons of bass and sub-bass response, the TH-L700A works great for modern genres, like pop, hip-hop and electronica. 

You can buy the Yamaha TH-L700A at Audio 46.

Focal Bathys

$639 (on sale)

If you’re looking for the world’s most premium sound quality in addition to a high fashion accessory, the French brand, Focal is the ultimate choice. This company produces some of the most high-end headphones on the market, and they’ve finally released a wireless model for audiophiles on the go. Sporting a stealth, James Bond-like design and a level of clarity that no other wireless headphone can match, the Bathys says, “I’ve made it” like no other headphone can. You’ll also get 30 hours of battery life, solid ANC, and a resolution of up to 24 bits.

You can buy the Focal Bathys at Audio 46.

Mark Levinson No. 5909


There’s luxury, and then there’s LUXURY. The No. 5909 is one of the priciest wireless headphones on the market. Boasting a 40mm Beryllium driver, these cans sound fast, punchy and highly articulate, with a crowd pleasing balance that masters any genre you choose to listen to. With a solid design, plush leather ear pads and some of the most effective ANC on the market, you can rest assured that you are getting the best of the best. The No. 5909 also supports all the high resolution Bluetooth codecs, including LDAC.
