The Best Headphones for When You Actually Make It to the Library

School is in session, sending undergrads back into the library to hit the books. Midterms will be here before you know it, and you don't want anything to get in the way of your cram sessions.

If you want to set the right mood while combing through text book and penning essays, the right music is key to blocking out unwanted distractions at the library and zero in on the task at hand — and it all starts with a premium headphone.

Best over-ear headphones

Over-ear headphones are ideal for listeners who want to drown out external noise. Not all over-ear headphones are necessarily noise-canceling, but they do a good job of blocking exterior sound since the ear cups fully encompass the listener's ears.

If you want trusted sound from an ergonomic headphone, the Denon AH-D7200 is an excellent choice. Made with the highest-quality materials available, including 7N-purity copper cables, walnut housings, and a sheepskin leather headband, it provides the ultimate combination of comfort and sonic quality.

For something that's a little more in line with the average college student's budget, consider the Denon AH-D1200. These over-ear headphones offer premium sound quality whether you're walking to class, doing homework, or studying at the library. Also, the AH-D1200's ergonomic design provides a lightweight, comfortable fit for long hours of listening.

Best in-ear headphones

Whether you prefer the secure fit of earbuds or just don't have enough space in your backpack to carry over-ear headphones around campus, opt for an in-ear headphones model.

Denon has a number of high-quality in-ear headphones priced to fit every budget, but when it comes to pure audio fidelity, you can't go wrong with the Denon AH-C820. These powerful, dual-driver headphones are designed to provide the best sound performance possible in a compact body. Denon-propriety Double Air Compression Driver technology serves up booming bass tones while still supporting sonic clarity with minimal distortion. Driver housings feature a combination of die-cast aluminum and resin, damping vibrations and strengthening the design's stability and durability. If you're looking for dynamic sound in a small package, the AH-C820 is the in-ear headphone pair for you.

Studying for exams may be stressful, but the right listening environment can put your mind at ease and help you focus. Denon has everything you need to get the best audio quality possible, from earbuds to over-ear headphones and true noise-canceling solutions.
