What is the best earphones (in ear / on ear / over the ear) you can find at 85$?

The Grado SR60i, the best set of headphones for the price you will find, everything is completely, positively, absolutely superb!

 

IMO.

Koss KSC75 or Koss PortaPro if you like something warmer and with more bass.

Sounds good!

Any more options?

Have you considered the Martin Logan Mikros 90 closed portables?

A steal at current street prices (now available for about $85 w/MSRP of $299.95).  

Get them positioned correctly and amped adequately and they will amaze you.

Other options?  Tyll of www.innerfidelity.com has the Sennheiser HD239 on his wall of fame and they are around $52 on Amazon.

I personally like the sound of the HD219 more and it's available on Amazon for around $39.  

 

The HD239 is open back and the HD219 is closed back.  

 

The Koss I mentioned before are both open back.  A lot of Koss stuff is under $85.  I've heard good things about the Koss DJ100 is $43 on Amazon.  I haven't listened to it so I can't say much about it.

 

What types of music are going to be using these with?  Where are you buying from?  The Grado SR60i is on Amazon for $79.

NVX XPT100, and Creative Aurvana Live!. Although if you're not American, then they may be too expensive.

V-Moda Crossfade LPs are on sale for $80 on Amazon.ca! This sale won't last long though! I really recommend a pair.
