The Bottom Line Grado's cheapest headphones belt out big sound with pint-size portable audio devices. The Grado SR80i headphones are a great budget pair that offer sparkling sound with tight bass and are best suited to home use. The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones are among the best available for less than $200, offering excellent sound and build quality. 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.
