Budget Headphones

Discussion in 'Monitoring' started by PinguinoGrande, Sep 24, 2005.

  1. I'm in the midst of building a small setup for recording. In my spending of cash flow, I have very little left in my budget for anything else. Right now I have a pair of $25 Sony headphones I bought at Walmart.

    Does anyone have recommendations for headphones under $50?
    I could possibly spend up to $100, but would prefer to be under $50.

    All suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Few years ago I was also looking for a pair of phones <50$ (actually eur, since I'm european), ended up paying 80 for AKG k100's. I'm very happy with those. I think those are now discontinued, but what I'm trying to suggest is stretching your budget a bit and look for 50-100$ AKG's, Sennheisers etc. (personally I don't like Sennheisers though). Well, I didn't find a suitable pair of phones under 50$, you might... kinda personal issue, you know...

    AKG makes some nice cans under $50- just about their whole under $50 line is very useable. I used to have my studio stock up with them. For drums and lead vox though I like my senny's 280 (100 bucs)
  4. im not an expert but I use some cheap AKGs and theyre fine
  5. i have a pair of audio technica headphones that i got for about seventy dollars and i absolutely love them.
    the model is ATH-M40FS. i bought them off of musicians friend and it was one my most solid purchases
