more expensive does not necessarily mean better. in your opinion, what headphone offers the best bang for the buck?

If you ask ten different head-fiers this you will probably get ten different answers.

Considering the concept of diminishing returns the biggest gains are made very early on in the price spectrum, so I nominate my $9 JVC HA-S150 flats .

Alessandro MS-1i's and Shure SRH-440/840's come to mind rather forcefully.

Koss KSC75

While I find myself gravitating more and more to custom or highly modded headphones - for stock, IMO - Beyer dt990/600ohm is a best buy or a used pair of Grado RS1/flats.

Koss PortaPro or PX100's for sure for the $$$ conscious.

Koss Porta Pro for sure, you can't go wrong with a pair considering their price although they are 80's styled in that case heads down the px-100.

I don't see how you can beat KSC75 for under $15 and lifetime replacement warranty!
post #14 of 57
From my experience I would say the K601 which can compete with headphones of a much higher cost.

Covered an innumerable amount of times here, but I'm bored.

IMO :
Koss KSC75 - $15
Grado SR60 - $70
