The Sony MDR-V6 headphones are not under $50, they are more like $70-$80.

If you can use semi-open headphones, Takstar Hi2050 (Technical Pro HPT990) sell for $50.

Just came back from Guitar Center, they didn't have the Sony but here's what I've tried:

 

Audio-Technica ATH-M50 (I couldn't stop listening to these, best of all today's)

 

beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO (extremely comfortable but 0 isolation, maybe it's their "thing")

 

Sennheiser HD 280 PRO (I liked these more than the 380 PRO)

Sennheiser HD 380 PRO

 

Shure SRH440 (even here, I liked these more than the 840)

Shure SRH840

 

 

I still want to test the Sony but I think I am pretty much already sold for the M50, they are what I am looking for in a pair of headphones.

 

 

Crazy question, it is just me or IEMs are overall better than these big headphones?
