Best headphones for $50 or under?

Asked by fortris (680points) May 26th, 2009 from iPhone

I’m willing to budge the price a bit, but I want good sound isolation, comfortable headphones with a strong bass.

Preferably good isolation, as I want to play drums with them on, but use for everyday as well.

Are you looking for over the ear or earbuds?

I would assume over ear if you want to play drums with them…

Go with Skull Candy Earbuds. They dont fall out and have extraordinary sound quality with excellent bass. $40

I had some skull candy headphones (not the earbuds) and I didn’t like them too much, just my opinion. I use JVC Stereo Headphones HA-M300, they are cheap and pack power with some nice bass, also decent at noise cancelling.

I recently got a pair of Denon AH-C351 in-ear headphones, and I couldn’t be happier.

Try Musicians Friend and Guitar Center’s websites for that type of thing. They usually have a very wide selection of musicians headphones, that would be great to double as normal everyday headphones.

I say this every time someone asks for headphone recommendations, but http://headphone.com/ has a great selection guide.

Along the lines of what people have been saying… Look it up… I would recommend going for some Sony cans. They make good headphone generally and most other brands are a bit more expensive. I personally hate scull candy because they are cheaply made and don’t ever seem to fit right.
