Headphones Audio-Technica ATH-ES7
0

Among all of the reasonably priced portable headphones, the Audio-Technica ATH-ES7 is a unique offering that manages to combine style and substance without compromising much of either.

Headphones Grado SR60i
2

Though I’ve never personally considered Grados to be portable cans, the sound produced by the SR60i for a mere $80 is hard to argue against.

Headphones Beyerdynamic DT235
9

The Beyerdynamic DT235 is easily one of the better sub-$100 headphones I have heard. The combination of simple and durable construction, long-term comfort, and truly impressive sound quality make it an excellent choice for those who care little for looks and a whole lot for substance.

Headphones Sennheiser HD238
0

As someone who still finds the sound signature of Sennheiser’s aging PX100 enjoyable in a relaxing sort of way after years of ownership, I had high hopes for Senn’s new ‘audiophile’-class portables. What I got was a more refined dose of the typical Sennheiser sound in what is admittedly a very handsome and convenient portable.

Headphones Sony MDR-XB500
2

The Sony MDR-XB500 is a solid, albeit not truly hi-fi, performer in the $50 range. The bass is strong and smooth and generally remains quite competent despite being slightly dull in nature.

Headphones Alessandro MS1
4

Though the Alessandro MS1 suffers from the same isolation, comfort, and portability issues as the competing Grados, they offer quite a lot of sonic bang for the buck.

Headphones Numark PHX Pro
0

Though most retailers want around $100 for the Numark PHX Pro, looking around ebay and amazon can yield an open-box or even brand new set for as little as 2/3 of that.
