Grado's comfortable open-back, on-ear model delivers high-quality sound for an affordable price of $99.
Quibbles aside, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are a modestly improved version of the already spectacular model they're based on, and among the best-sounding pairs you'll find for less than $200.
This nifty combo is great for runners, but the receiver can also be used with other earphones or even a home stereo.
If you don't have a problem with their fit or finish, the Mpow Cheetah wireless sports headphones are a relative bargain at around $35 online.
The Germans are at it again, and headphone-maker Beyerdynamic sent a slew of great gear to the Audiophiliac.
The Brainwavz HM5s sound great, are very comfortable, and are able to compete with high-end headphones for a relatively affordable price.
They're refurbished, but also backed by a one-year warranty. You'd pay at least $100 for them elsewhere.
