Headphones have gotten very expensive! Paying a lot of money for headphones is not really necessary, there are a few pairs that are under $50 that can serve your purposes. A lot of consumers have provided reviews for inexpensive headphones and even don comparisons between very expensive headphones to the under $50 types and have not been able to detect a real difference in the quality.
It leaves you wondering if what you are really paying for is not the technology but the brand name instead.
The best headphones under $50 are listed below.
The Incipio f38 Headphones
The Incipio offers a comfortable fit and decent sound quality. They are a good pick for the under $50 category.
The JVC Flats fold flat but do not have a carrying case. Frankly for the price $13 you can buy a carrying case if you must. They are comfortable and have good sound quality and they are THIRTEEN DOLLARS! JVC is a quality name in sound and these Flats do not disappoint.
Koss Porta Pro’s
The Porta Pro’s are a uniquely designed headphone. The sound quality is comparable to much more expensive models. They are comfortable to wear according to consumer reports but they look a little strange. The cost is a very affordable $25! Well worth the small investment.

The cost? An affordable $25!
