Whether your giftee wants to rock out at the club or work out at the gym, V-Moda's Vibe (and iPhone-compatible Vibe Duo) makes a great choice. Sound quality is higher than many (much) more expensive models (the bass is pretty booming), and the buds fit very snugly in your ears. These $99 buds are also made of solid metal -- unlike your chintzy iPod headphones, which we've broken countless pairs of -- so they can take a beating (and a sweating). They even come with a plastic piece with which to wrap the excess cord, so it doesn't get caught in the spokes of your SoloFlex or random objects in your path, as well as a leather pouch for transport. Oh, and V-Modas come in black and silver, too, if shiny red headphones isn't your thing.
