You can believe it! It’s possible to get studio quality headphones for less than $50. In fact you can choose from 8 different brands – five famous name brands like Sony and Audio Technica and 3 you may not have ever heard of like Tascam and Lyx, but definitely worth checking out. Better quality at lower prices can be found if you know where to look.
The list includes these headphones:
- Sennheiser HD202 II
- Audio Technica ATH-M30x
- Sony MDR-7502
- Samson SR850
- Presonus HD7
- Tascam TH02-B
- Behringer HPS3000
- Lyx Pro HAS-10
- Because unfortunately, many of the top headphones in this category are relatively unknown, and few folks have heard of them.
- And as you might expect, and as most reviews will confirm, they aren’t quite as great as the 7506, but there is definitely a clear resemblance to its bigger brother.
- As the first and only true open back design on this list, it is the obvious choice for critical listening applications such as mixing.
“Audio Technica is a brand that seems to specialize in building quality headphones at low, low prices.”
