I like checking out budget headphones from time to time and this place always has a set that people are hyping to the moon and back, was just curious what the latest was.  The last set I bought was the Panasonics from last year that were 30 or so on amazon, what have I missed and what is new?

I'm definitely "fawning" over the Beyerdynamic DT 235. :wink: Their sound quality is extremely impressive compared to others at that price, IME.
 
The JVC HA-S400 and particularly the HA-S500 are very popular around here ATM.

Why good luck?  I did a google and the first few links are sites selling them for sub 50


 
Those are all from China from 3rd party aliexpress.com sellers, some people are weary. I wouldn't hesitate to order one if I was interested. Would probably take a while to arrive though.

EDIT: Nevermind, that and the other listing I found have 5 piece minimums. They're probably pretty hard to get ahold of after all.

I think that that's the minimum to get the discounted bulk price. I've never used Aliexpress, though.
