Retailing for around $50 online, the Equation Audio RP-15MCs are a surprisingly handsome and very well-rounded headphone.
Released back in 2002, the Audio-Technica ATH-EM7 GM may be one of the oldest models in this lineup but it is by no means outdated.
The Maxell DHP-II is yet another outstanding sub-$50 buy for anyone in search of great-sounding, extremely comfortable, and reasonably portable headphones.
The Earsquake PIXI is yet another small portable headphone that pursues fashionable aesthetics and a minimalistic form factor in lieu of comfort and isolation.
The Earpollution ThrowBax attempt to emulate the venerable Panasonic RP-HTX7 but with the price point of the Panasonics coming down into the lower $30 range over the past year, buying the Earpollution version makes little sense.
Though I am not particularly fond of the sound of the HD-AK1000, they do little wrong for an inexpensive, consumer-oriented set
The Soundmagic P20 is a competitive budget-level headphone, boasting appealing portability, impressive balance and clarity, and reasonable build quality.
Yet another reasonably-priced piece of portable audio equipment from Meelectronics, the HT-21 is a set that places as much emphasis on convenience as it does on sound.
The build and sound quality of the Arctic Sound headphones may not be quite as brilliant as those of sets from better-known manufacturers but for those in search of a DJ-style headphone on the cheap, the P281 is not the worst choice out there.
