The Bottom Line They've been around since 1991, but the Sony MDR-7506s are still great sounding -- and fitting -- headphones for less than $100. The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones are among the best available for less than $200, offering excellent sound and build quality. They may be close to 30 years old, but the comfortable fitting Sony MDR-V6s are arguably the best-sounding headphones for under $100. Sennheiser's versatile headphones sound great on DVDs and all kinds of music. While they're not in the same league as the step-up ATH-M50 headphones, the Audio-Technica ATH-M30 set costs a lot less and offers impressive performance and decent build quality for the money.
