these philips x o’neill headphones are the real deal.

The ten minutes we spent the other day untangling those annoying iPod earbuds was enough to convince us that we needed to splurge on a a new pair of headphones.

But while spending more for higher quality is one thing, we don't want to buy a pair that's so expensive, we'd die if we accidentally left them on the subway.

Fortunately, the new Philips x O'Neill collaboration is the perfect middle ground. Ranging from $30 earbuds to $60 larger styles, each pair in the line has amazing sound quality, volume and track controls on select models, and a comfortable fit that won't fall out when you're running on the treadmill (or sprinting for the train).

But most importantly? They all have tangle-free cables, which means less time spent unknotting cords and more time spent turning up the music and tuning out.

Buy them here.
