Foldable on-ear headphones are supposed to combine the full-throated audio of full-size "cans" with the portability of earbuds. This rarely happens, but V-Moda's XS headphones succeed where others fail, compressing down to fit in virtually any bag while providing the kind of sophisticated audio profile you'd normally associate with over-the-ear models. Their highlight is in the mid tones, which many headphones overlook, but where the SX seemed to drag vocals out of the audio mix. [$212; v-moda.com]
