Let's face it, when it comes to sitting in class sometimes you just don't feel like listening. Perhaps your teacher is droning on about formulas and stuff and that is the sort of thing you prefer to learn at home. Whatever the case or reason, students often need a good set of headphones. Headphones come in handy when you are trying to study and people next door or your roommate is being loud.

There are bunches of different headphones out there from in-ear or over-ear ear to on-ear. Each style has its advantages. The in-ear style and over-ear style generally block more noise out. The on ear style are often more comfortable. The in-ear and over-ear styles will also block sound and some of them have active noise cancellation features. If you need a nice set of headphones for back to school read on for some of my top picks that you might be interested in.

1. Skullcandy INK'd Earbuds S2INCZ-033 - Skullcandy makes some of the best headphones that I have used and they also are some of the most reasonably priced. The Ink'd headphones are in-ear style and come with several different sized tips for a perfect fit. These earphones offer good bass and they are very lightweight. They also do a good job of blocking sounds so you can study and keep your music to yourself. This particular set sells for $11.95 and is available in multiple colors.

2. Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones - When it comes to noise cancellation the Bose QuietComfort headphones are at the top. These headphones will play your music and they have active noise cancellation. They are over-the-ear style and should be very comfortable. If you don’t like the feel of in-ear headphones and have a larger budget these are the headphones for you. The active noise cancellation tech is powered by three AAA batteries and they have a 35-hour battery life per set. They come with a cable for the iPhone and it has a mic for making calls too. The big problem with these headphones is that they are slightly under $300.

3. Klipsch IMAGE S4 In-Ear Enhanced Bass Noise-Isolating Headphones - Klipsch is famous for its speakers and audio technology and these are some very nice headphones. They are in-ear style and come with numerous tips for a more custom fit. They aren't the cheapest earphones at about $80, but they sound good. They have oval ear tips for a better seal and more comfort and promise more bass for your music. They also come with a stainless steel case for carrying them on the road.

4. Beats Studio by Dr. Dre - Hi-Def Noise-Canceling Over-Ear Headphones - These are stylish headphones that offer noise cancellation and an over the ear design. These headphones are offered in glossy white or black colors and have a very cool design. They use powered active noise cancellation tech and have large ear cups for comfort with breathable cushions. The downside here is that these headphones are almost the same price as the Bose headphones at $247.84.

5. Philips Rich Bass Neckband Headphones - If you are the sort that doesn't want to mess up your hair, but don’t like in-ear headphones this is the set for you. They are on-the-ear style but they have a band that is behind the neck. That means they don’t run over the top of your head so they won't crush your hair. This sort of earphones usually stays put well during exercise too. The headphones have a reflective neckband for those that walk or run at night as well. You can buy this set of headphones for under $20.
