Awesome Headphones For $200 Or Less

ath m50 1Audio-Technica ATH-M50 ($160)
The M50’s deliver enough clarity to decipher lyrics mumbled by Eddie Vedder, and sufficient power handling for you to blast Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” without worrying about distortion. Audio-Technica’s driver technology is tailored to those who want to experience deep, accurate bass and extended range, and the closed-back cushion ear cups minimize bleeding. Translation: Feel free to blast your Miley Cyrus albums at work, because nobody on the outside will hear a sound. When you’re through, the collapsible design makes for easy mobile transport.
