Sony MDR-1R

Sony's forays into headphones of late have often been focused on boosted bass, or even co-branding with television shows (like the X Factor), so it's refreshing to see a no-nonsense, high quality pair like the MDR-1R. At $299.99 (direct), it's priced...

Bowers&Wilkins P3

Although not as opulent as Bowers & Wilkins' high-end, $300 P5 headphones, the $200 P3s still sound excellent, and they deliver enough pleasure -- auditory and otherwise -- to justify the price.

Logitech UE 9000

The Logitech UE 9000, which can be used as a wired or a wireless Bluetooth headphone pair, is a high-quality, but very expensive, option.

Philips Fidelio L2

First and foremost, these are great headphones at any price. At this price, they're stupendous. Great soundstage and depth, a wonderful sense of space, and good tonal balance. They're also very well made, and quite stylish. Small gripe that the earpads...

Scosche lobeDOPE

If you're venturing into sub-$35 territory for headphones, here are some reasonable expectations: They will distort at higher volumes, will likely feel uncomfortable, and, by definition, be cheaply made. It's not that the bizarrely named Scosche...

Sennheiser HD 700

When it comes to weight, the HD700 headphones might sound heavy in the spec sheet as they weigh close to 1.6 kg. However, wear them and you’ll realise that they really aren’t that heavy at all. The insides of the cans are extremely spacious so there’s...

AKG K323XS

All told, while these aren’t entirely perfect, they are about as good as you can reasonably expect for £50. If that’s your limit (and particularly if you’re an iPhone user), you can buy with absolute confidence.

Mionix Nash 20 Headset

It’s been a while since we have seen a Mionix product here at pcG and the Nash 20 proves that this is a shame, as the Mionix Nash 20 is a without question a damn good Gaming headset. Ok so the packaging was a little on the dull side, but the headset...

Beats Studio 2.0

They may not be a bargain at $300, but the new Beats Studio headphones are lighter and better-built, and sound significantly better than the original Beats Studio model.

Panasonic ErgoFit RP-TCM125

While the ErgoFit RP-TCM125 doesn't sound as good as the cheaper RP-HJE120, it still sounds respectable for its budget price tag and includes a one-button inline/remote microphone.
