Help choosing $30 over-ear headphones

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for the best bang for buck, all around value headphones for around $30. I want them for pretty much all genres of music and casual movie watching/gaming. They'll be used on my phone, computer and Phillips SA-PM18 amp.

My top 5 are:

  1. Sannheiser HD201 (Cheap, I know, but apparently worth $50)
  2. JVC HAS400
  3. Panasonic HTX7 (These won CNET's under $50 Headphones)
  4. Audio-Technica ATH-SJ33
  5. Monoprice 8323​ (These aren't available here)
I would love anyone to share experiences with any on my top 5, advice and their own recommendations, Thanks.

have you checked jvs has 500? (out of budget though)

Yup, they're only 5 more than the 400's but delivery is 2 weeks from Japan, not ideal.

I have heard that their sound quality is good for that price.

Thanks I'll keep it in mind if I can find a more verified, quicker seller for the same price.

I actually bought a pair of Sony MDR-ZX600s on sale for $70 down to $30. They're fairly good with loud, eartight around and great portability, I would prefer a pair of over-heads for home use and hopefully my brother will be able to get me a pair of ATH-M50's on sale in the states.

I would probably try JVC or Panasonic - they seems to have decent bang for your buck sound. Don't expect miracles for $30... smily_headphones1.gif
