Don't get us wrong, earbuds are great headphones, especially given that you can listen to your mp3 player and then throw it and you headphones into your pocket. But, when inconspicuousness and extreme portability aren't mandatory, a true music fan should be listening to tunes through headphones with a little more oomph.

"But these earbuds came free with my iPod, and they don't sound that bad," you might say.

Fair enough. It's hard to argue free, especially in these tight times.

Which is why we're giving away five pairs of Pioneer oM Series headphones -- $89 retail, with professional DJ-quality sound -- for the exact cost of nothing.

To be eligible for this prize, all you have to do is post a comment telling us what type of music is your favorite for blasting into your ears via headphones.
