The Sonics are light and comfortable to wear for hours at a time, and though they don't feature active noise cancellation, Incase clearly understands the aural benefits of achieving a proper fit. If you only have room in your budget for one set of $150 headphones, the broad appeal of the Incase Sonic earns my endorsement.

The good: A unique collaboration of matte rubber, memory foam, and micro-fleece materials snag the Incase Sonic over-ear headphones extra points for comfort and durability, while the 40mm driver sharpens acoustics with impressive detail.
The bad: Space-conscious travelers might lament the lack of a folding headband.
The bottom line: The Incase Sonic headphones are a standout first effort for Incase. Their elongated earcups and memory foam lend a supremely comfortable fit, and the powerful titanium drivers inside add sweetness to their sound that earns them a universal recommendation for all types of music fans.
