I'm looking to buy a pair of headphones for my sister as a birthday gift. She's had Skullcandy for a while, but she isn't impressed with that brand overall and she's looking to change it up. Does anyone have a recommendation?

This guy is a knowledgeable reviewer. Testing many of the products himself. There's a good number of headphones he's reviewed on this site. Some quite expensive, but there are reasonable priced ones also. This might give you some good knowledge on what to look for.

​You can look into Sony for headphones, although most of their products also have a good reputation. The quality can change depending on the model since the specs will vary. It's better to know what features she's looking for in a good headphones.

Does your sister travel a lot? It's something to consider because there are headphones that are easier to carry around more than others. Aside from the brand, look into the specs such as battery life and noise-canceling ability.

Noise canceling is key! Does she want wireless or wired? We bought a pair of JBL headphones last year and I have to admit that they are great! I did not really even know the brand when we bought them.
