Top Five Sporty Headphones for Under $50 - Koss KSC75 ($19.99)
(Page 3 of 4 )
I've included these headphones for those people looking for a sporty pair of ear phones which do not go into your ear canal. These headphones actually clip onto the outside of your ears, and they are a comfortable alternative to the ear bud design of most of the sporty headphones on the market today.
These headphones are comfortable to wear thanks to the padded foam ear cushions. The ear clip pivots around the ear plates to provide the ideal comfort level for each individual. Beyond the good comfort of these headphones, Koss backs these up with the best warranty in the industry. Koss offers a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty with their KSC75s.
The sound quality is pretty good with these headphones. They feature a frequency response between 15-25,000 hertz, so it goes beyond what the human ear is even capable of hearing. The sensitivity of these little beauties is a respectable 101 dBs. The distortion level is average at < 0.2%. Overall, the sound quality is slightly better than average for the price range of the KSC75s.
With the alternative design of these headphones from Koss, it may offer some people who aren't happy with ear buds a more comfortable headphone. For less than $20, these headphones are tough to beat with their comfortable feel, good sound, and outstanding lifetime warranty.
Sennheiser PX 100 ($40)
These headphones are a bit different from my previous picks, because they sport a full headband. Some people do not like the ear bud style or the ear clip style of headphones, so I decided to take a look at a full headband style. The PX 100s are still great for workouts even though they are a bit larger in size than some of the other headphones I have looked at in this review. The reason they are good for active people is because they are extremely light, fit really well to the user's head and don't shift while the user is moving around. The PX 100s are among the most comfortable headphones in this review.
I mentioned earlier Sennheiser's high standards in its headphones. The PX 100s are a tribute to the great ergonomic design and excellent sound quality for which Sennheiser is famous. The PX 100s are capable of excellent sound quality which can only be matched by headphones twice the price of these. The frequency range is huge with frequencies falling between 15-27,000 hertz. The total harmonic distortion (THD) is pretty good at 0.1%. The sensitivity of the speakers used for the PX 100 is excellent at 114 dB.
The bottom line is that these headphones will give you excellent sound quality, and they are great for people who have sensitive ears that are irritated when using ear buds. These headphones even fold up like a pair of sunglasses when not in use. They also come with a convenient carry case in which to store them when not in use. Even though these headphones have been on the market for a few years now, they are still up to date on design and sound quality. This is a tribute to Sennheiser's design team. These headphones come with a solid two year warranty.
