Headphones for $50 or less

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

Need some recommendations for headphones around $50 or less.  General usage - media, music, movies, gaming

 

I'm looking at the JVC HA-S600 ($40).  Any others

I have the Monoprice 8323 ($23) and the Audio Technica Ath-M30 ($39 on Amazon) to suggest.

This may be the best sub $50 headphone you can buy today....

 

Senal SMH 500 ($39.99)

... which is the non-folding, cheaper alternative and based on the SMH 1000 flagship with the same drivers.

Here are some other <=$50 cans that get good reviews:

 

Samson SR850

Audiotechnica AT-M30/M35

JVC HAM750

Superlux HD681

I'd say find some JVC HARX700's too...old but still pretty dang good imho! Especially with a decent sound card! An amp helps like any headphone as well.Stuff under the earpads a little bit, I used paper towel. Easy to listen to, it's a semi-closed headphone but does sound pretty damn good even to this day for it's price. I preferred them for gaming vs an open Turtle Beach HPA2. A sound blaster x-fi extreme music really woke this hp up compared to onboard. There are some great USB sound card/amp combos out there that'll drive your sub $50 headphones to the next level.

 

I have wanted to try the Samsons and Monoprice headphones as well
