Sony is known for not only making great sounding headphones, but headphones that are easy to use in everyday life. The Sony MDR XB450AP are a perfect example of this. If you’re looking for a pair of lightweight and comfortable headphones with great bass for less than $50, these might be the ones to get.
That being said, they won’t be the perfect choice for everyone which I’ll cover in this review as well.
Audio Technica is known for producing some of the finest headphones on the planet. The M-series in particular have become one of the most popular headphones because of how great they sound and how well built they are for the money. The ATH-M30X stands out because it’s hard to find headphones that sound this good for under $50. That being said, they won’t be the perfect choice for everyone which I’ll discuss in this review as well.
