Are Cheap Headphones Any Good?

buying cheap headphonesThe thing is that you don’t actually have to spend a lot of money to get a pair of good sounding headphones. Obviously you will have to make some compromises if you want a pair of cheap headphones but that does not mean that they’ll sound awfull.

If you know what to look for there is a good chance that you’ll be able to get a pair of over ear headphones that sound great for under $100.

Buying the right pair of headphones can be a bit difficult if you’re on a budget and like I said before compromises will be made.

First of all it’s probably safe to say that you won’t find headphones that sound good as well as look good, so you’ll have to decide what you want more: design or sound. I’m thinking sound because if you think about it why would you even listen to a pair of headphones if they sound like crap, even if they look amazing, right?

Another thing to consider is the type of music you listen to. Different headphones offer different sound quality based on the music. For instance my favorite genre of music is house so when bought my current headphones I looked for something that would have good bass. For the money I paid for them they’re the best bass headphones you can find.

Is the bass as good as an expensive pair of headphones. Probably not, but it’s good enough for me since I’m mostly listening to mp3s, Youtube videos and other online audio streams.

Another plus is you won’t feel too bad if you break or lose your headphones since you din’t pay a lot of money for them and you can easily buy another pair.

If you want an over ear or on ear pair of headphones there are so many good ones you can find under $100 and there are even some under 50 bucks that are still good.

For the money you’re paying these headphones will deliver very good sound if you’re using them at your PC.

Ofcourse there are downsides to getting cheap headphones. One of thems is that they’re pretty fragile. The construction is that solid, in fact they’re very poorly built. If you want quality materials you’re gonna have to spend a bit more.

Another thing is that it will take you some time to research different models until you find something good at a low price. So be prepared to spend a lot of time on forums or review sites until finally you find a “diamond in the rough”.

For me whenever I want to buy something, doesn’t matter from where I buy it from I go on Amazon and look at what people say about that product. Whether it’s headphones or books or fitness equipment, reviews from people who tested those products really help you make a good decision.

I guess that’s about it, hope I haven’t confused you even more. By the way, since Child’s Day is fast approaching, if you’re looking for something you can give as a gift to your kids I found a great video online with toy cars. It’s not an english website but I think they ship internationaly and the prices are very affordable. Here’s the video below:
