I just bought a pair of klipsch S4's for 45 dollars and they are some of the best headphones i've had, and they have a two year warranty. I had some S2's a couple of years ago and loved them pretty hard, so I got the S4's last week to try them and they are so nice, they sound so clear, there is a realistic yet strong amount of bass, they block out pretty much all sound, and are extremely comfortable.

Ignoring the dumb comments about "base," Sony MDR-7506/v6 (v6 are the old version) are totally the way to go for cheap headphones. Great, clean, and balanced sound quality, although the bass isn't particularly heavy.

Stop that


And I'd say just save up a bit and get a good pair of headphones. I absolutely love my pair of ath-m50's. I got mine when they dropped to $111

These are good too, a little cheaper

For any price they pretty much suck. I don't get why anyone would want a bunch of extra base added to their music that's not intended to be there

There's not a whole lot of extra bass, at least not in the Studios. I own a pair I got as a gift a couple years back (Mom found them for like 150 bucks). They sound great and everything, but for full retail (and even for the 150), you can get way better.

And a lot of people want a little extra bass in their music. Just gives it that extra oomph. They're not intended to be studio monitors (which would mean the sound is meant to sound exactly as it did coming out of the studio).

So yea, pretty good quality headphones, but extremely overpriced and over-hyped.

Honestly, unless you are an audiophile you're not going to notice any difference in a lot of these headphones. Just buy some that have good reviews, are in your budget, and either have a good warranty or have reviews that say they will last for awhile.

Once you get into high end headphones, you really have to know what you are listening for to really appreciate them.

I dropped a chunk of my birthday money on Beats solo and honestly was not impressed. Uncomfortably tight, and sound quality is just not up to what I expected for that money.

Ahh I see.

Admittedly I've never heard the Studios, only the smaller ones that sit on the ear. I like a good flat accurate response though, hear what the artist intended.

Oh yea, Solos are a POS for how much they cost.

Agreed! I like cheap panasonic because they are built well and sound good, sony always break quickly and sound tinny in my experience but w/e.... lots of people think they sound good so ya.

I have Sennheiser headphones that are pretty accurate, sound amazing compared to everything else I've ever owned and used (and has a dj for over 15 years that is a lot of headphones). I was gifted a pair of ibeats and I find they sound really nice, but not amazing.

If you're looking for over-the-ear headphones, don't go and spend 100 dollars:

I have had a pair of these since last summer. just 25 dollars, sound fantastic for the price, the only real downside is that they are not very good looking. they sound so good, and they have lasted me well over 7 months now, and they are comfortable.

I have tried Beats and they are shit, especially for the price. They are tinny and just awful and there's a lot out there that's better value.
For the past 2 years I have had a brand called Jays. They are a Swedish brand and mine cost $80 and are a couple steps above the entry-level ones, but not the top model. I'm not the type of person that seems to go through headphones a lot.

Does anyone remember that guy that used to spam here with some website where they "mistakenly priced" Beats headphones? Oh man, if only he was still around.

I still have my Sony mdr4's! There great! I've great things about mdr7506's... There about 80 bucks but worth it!

For the money I recommend Klipsch s4's for the price,mobility, and sound...

Beats are a joke, people love them because they have so much emphasis on the low-end of a tune. The funny thing is, though, that you can pretty much get that with any headphone with a little EQ work on a song. It's not how it's intended to sound, though, when headphones boost lows.

If you want some decent headphones, for around $100, try SOL Republic or V-Moda. I've tried them both before and they're alright, not exactly "super HiFi" headphones but decent for the money I guess. If you don't plan on skating around with them, however, you should definitely save up your cash and get a pair of studio quality headphones. You would be shocked at the difference between commercial brand headphones at Fred Meyer and real HiFi headphones from a lesser known, higher quality brand.

Seriously, though, in comparison to Beats, V-Moda takes the cake. Comparable in low-end emphasis and they sell their Crossfade LP series for around $100. Totally worth the money if you really want some "bass" headphones that are pretty nice. They look cool, very "stylish" too, so I guess that's a plus..

Be more specific please? Do you want over head headphones or ear buds? Are you gonna skate with these headphones on?

If you want to invest in a quality ear bud headphone for under 50$ then hit up amazon for some klipsch S4's. There great for the money and will keep the tunes flowing while you're shredding on the board.

If you're going to for the over head studio monitor headphone then 50$ ain't going to go far but you'll get something decent at least.

These are cheap and will work...
