Headphones under $50 recommendation

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for some headphones under $50. I typically listen to Dubstep and often complain about the lack of bass or sound I get from most headphones, but i also listen to other types of music. I have my eye on one pair here but I'm not sure it will be up to my standards, if you have any other recommendation's I'd love to hear them.

Koss Ruk50 - plenty of bass, but it isn't an overpowering mess, and they do well with other genres. Inexpensive, well built, few different color options, lifetime warranty, comfortable - they've got my vote. smily_headphones1.gif

Monoprice 8323. It has the bass, but it's not overpowering at all. Great sounding overall, fantastic to mod and you can pick up a pair off of the Monoprice website for around $23 bucks, which leaves money for a small amp like the FiiO E5, which can boost the bass even more, if you want. Or, that leaves money for velour pads for more comfort. Definitely check them out!

Either Somic MH463 or EFi82MT. Lots of users says that they sound in $200-300 league.

Sony XB500 (if u can find them under $50)

 

Sony XB400 (stylish, good to carry around, decent sounding)

The Somic MH463 is probably the best bang for the buck, but I don't know whether the bass is enough for you.

 

You could look at the Panasonic RP-HTF600s. I have a pair and I think they have plenty of bass. For a first buy, they won't disappoint if you listen to dubstep.

akg k430 is currently on sale for $30, you can't get any better than these.(assuming that they are still on sale on amazon).

Very. It's all plastic, but very thick.

I don't see anything better under $50.

If you want a lot of bass for dubstep you might check out the Sennheiser HD419's. I just got 2 pair and both are the bassiest headphones in my collection, even more than the IED's. They were $32 each, shipped.

Some say JVC HA-S500 are the best in their price range. I'm gonna buy a pair of these.

Now I use Superlux HD-668B, but today there are lots of new stuff in the market like JVC HA-S500, Somic MH463, EFi82MT and so on.. While choosing never rely on reviews of outdated products.

+1 for JVC HA-S500.  Surprisingly good and cheap.  Decent quality earpad material too.

Takstar HI 2050, great build quality and pretty good sound and even better when amped.
