You don't have to spend a lot to get great headphones. We tested six full-size models that each cost less than $100 (one of them significantly less), and we came away impressed by what you can get.

Sony MDR-7506 Professional Headphone

 

I first invested in my pair of Sony 7506's with a package of 2 turntables and a mixer all 5 years ago. After almost spending $200 on a high end pair of Sony's at the time, someone at the local music store told me to get a pair of 7506's instead. I've...

Crystal clear sound, very bendable and flexible for on the fly mixing in clubs, studios, and various parties

I don't have the greatest sound card, Audigy 2 ZS, so I'm probably holding back the SQ. It is very flexible will fit very large domes! Has a really long coiled cord I can walk any where in my 12x13 room from my desk in a corner. Doesn't completely seal...
