Any cheap headphones?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 

OK, so I was wondering ARE there any cheap headphones?

Not those crappy 2 use headphones, I mean like ones that have noise-isolation and are small 20-40mm.

I was thinking about the Skullcandy Agents, Beats by Dr. Dre, or Skullcandy Hesh

Yes I know they are all crappy but when it comes to headphones/earphones I suck at choice.

I'm looking for durable, noise-isolating headphones, and have a warranty (optional) AND ARE UNDER 50

Some of this criteria is crazy (I know) like the 20-40mm thing but I'm just looking for something cheap, noise-isolating, and durable.

The rest is just a plus to the product

 

 

THANKS ALOT AND TRY TO SURVIVE WITHOUT THOSE TWINKIES!

Koss R/80 - closedback, comfortable, good sounding, $50 MSRP (usually $30-$40 street), lifetime warranty, well put together; not bad at all. The KTX-Pro are open-back and also sound good, cost less too.

The Monoprice look nice and I also saw the Sennheiser on the related products which one would be better?

Seriously recommend the Beyerdynamic DT235 and Sennheiser PX-100.

Monoprice and Superlux make great budget headphones.

Sennheiser HD-201 @~$20

Though they're open, the Koss PortaPros

have been receiving top reviews in their class

for a really long time...lifetime warranty, too.

 

 

Also +1 on the Beyer DT 235's

I use them stock with no modification all the time even I have the HD-650 and Shure SRH-840. Of course no competition here but I can still enjoy the music for hours, it is also very light and no fat cable getting caught on things. HD-201 is a good companion to my higher end headphones for different situation. The velour pad is a good recommendation.

Yeah my favorite beater/budget set. I've had several sets over the years.  I really hate the stock pads so I spent the $10 and bought the Velours from Senn.

I like them so much I put a $75 cable on a $17 set of cans...LOL

To me, a headphones with best technical spec and technically good sound are of little use if they feel uncomfortable or sound fatique after wearing for 20mins.

HD-201 is one such headphones that are not technically accurate, doesn't sound the very best but remain listenable and enjoyable when you need them.

Do I recommend them as one and only headphones or the headphones to buy? No, but I think because of the low price and performance JUST DO IT!

So basically the competition is

 

 

                                   THE SENNHEISER 201

                                                     VS.

                      THE MONOPRICE

                                                VS.

             Beyerdynamic DT235

 

 

 

 

 

So which one would be better? I'm pretty lenient towards the Sennheiser but what about the other ones they any good?

Thanks alot guys really appreciate it :D

DT235 is on-ears,  HD-201 and 8323 are over-ears. Also CAL! if you can find them below $50.
