The Best Headphones for Under $50
So you are in the market for an inexpensive, yet amazing pair of headphones? I have just the pair for you. They have great sound, excellent bass, are comfortable, and best of all cost less than $50 and have a lifetime warranty.
If bass is your thing, the Koss PortaPro headphones are an excellent choice. In my opinion, they are the best headphones in their class. They have excellent bass and great overall sound stage, but perhaps best of all, they are very portable. The headphones can be folded, making it easy to travel with them. And while their retro look may not appear very comfortable, the PortaPro headphones are some of the most comfortable and easily adjustable headphones I have ever used.
Plus, as with all Koss products they come with Koss’ lifetime warranty, meaning Koss will replace or repair them free of charge — you just pay shipping. As a longtime user of these headphones I’ve had to replace them about three times, each time I sent them in for repair/replacement it went seamlessly.
They are good for working out too. Koss even makes a model of these headphones specifically for working out called the SportaPro if you want something a bit more “sporty.” The SportaPro’s are also a bit cheaper, pricing in at around $20. The only real con for either of these headphones (though for me, I don’t mind) is that they have almost no sound isolation and high leakage.
All in, the Koss PortaPro’s have been time tested, they’ve been around for more than two decades now and have held up very well.
Pricing starts at $40. Buy the Koss PortaPro headphones.
