Last week, we went over some worthy choices when it comes to upgrading your computer speakers to something a little fancier
(but still running on a budget). We received tons of additional feedback from the community, so when a buddy of ours asked us about high-end audio headphones, we had to come to her aid.
Hey, I was looking for a new pair of headphones (not earphones) to use for my computer PC. I want something that I can power with an amp to listen to my music with its fullest potential. My budget is around $100. Any recommendations? Thanks!!We've covered matching headphones, portable and even stylish ones, but never looked deeply into the sonics (given our budgets ourselves) to determine an all-around "perfect" budget headphone.
But that doesn't mean we don't have options. The first, being one of my top favorite headphones of all time, is the Grado SR60's
. It's priced ridiculously low for the great sound it produces (and even better with a decent amp) at a spectacular $69
right now at Amazon. Just bear in mind that these do leak sound quite a bit, which isn't optimal for a subway station, but is perfect for home use.
Other options include the Sony MDR-7506 Professional Headphones
($95), which some say are much more comfortable and matches the quality of the Grado's as well.
