Good portable headphones for under 50$

Posted

Pros: Fun sound for the price, decent highs with lots of shimmer, good soundstage, lightweight yet durable

Cons: Recessed mids, rolled-off bass, highs may be too bright for some, earpads and headband wear out over time.

These were my first over-ear headphones, and I read a lot of good things about these headphones before buying them. I got them for 40$ (Canadian) at Future Shop as they were on clearance. I've used it for about 2 years before I upgraded to the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x.   Design Despite their looks, they are quite durable and aren't prone to breaking.

The base is a bit thin and lacking in absolue depth and slam. The treble can be a bit "spity" and sibilant and ultimate transparency is limited. Having said that it all works together well and produces a very listenable sound. With their...

Cheap and Surprisingly... Good?

Pros: Comfort, Lightness, Decent Sound

Cons: Short Cord, Cheap Adjustment

I LOVE music, but have never had an "Ok" pair of headphones.  So I about a year ago I spent a few days looking for the best inexpensive pair I could afford. I read hundreds of reviews and finally came up with two to chose from:  The Panasonic RP-HTX7 and the Koss PortaPro.   As they are different, I decided to get both pairs from bhphotovideo (both for good prices and still might be).   But as this is the RP-HTX7 Thread, I will stick to that for now (plus nothing I could really say about the PortaPro that has not been said already).     Anyhooo.  I let the RP-HTX7 be "burned" in overnight as it played through hundreds of...
