Travel headphones under 250?

more_vert
Idk if this is the right place to post, but I`m hoping someone can help me find a pair of headphones for traveling under 250 bucks? I dont have all that much money to spend on headphones, and the only other pair I`ve gotten suggested elsewhere is the Sennheiser momentums. Do any of you have any other suggestions?

Probably too late for the OP, but right now QC25s are $180 at amazon.

If you’re willing to consider IEMs instead of over-ear headphones, the 1More Quad Driver IEMs for $199 are simply stellar and sound way above their price range—like Senn 650 good. If you want to stick with over ear headphones, the Senn 598s are great—85%-90% of what you get with Senn 650 but way easier to drive. If you’re willing to spend a little more, can’t say enough about the Oppo PM-3. They’re $400. But Oppo sells them refurbished on their store sporadically for around $300. A friend and I both got ours that way. They appeared brand new and sound excellent for all genres. They’re super easy to drive, closed-backed, premium build, comfortable, and tuned close to neutral with a very slight U shape.

I use a pair of Bowers & Wilkins P7's ($700 usd), they're excellent but pricey.. But they fold and are built like tanks. I couldn't find any other ones that fit my criteria so I saved up and bought them. Sorry if this isn't much help.

Sennheiser HD598cs (at amazon), they're the closed back version of the 598s. They don't fold, but they sound wonderful. But no noise canceling... Bose does that. Good Luck!

When someone says "travel headphones" I think active noise canceling, and Bose makes the best ones. QC 20 is just in your budget, but they're in ears. QC 25 have better sound quality (imo), but they cost a bit more.

https://en-us.sennheiser.com/wireless-headphones-bluetooth-noise-cancelling-hd-4-50-btnc These Sennheisers are great <200. Sony came out with a pair of truly wireless buds recently as well. Both the Sennheisers and the Sony's have decent noise cancelling

Vmoda Crossfade lp2. They are very under your budget.. In fact you can even buy a portable DaC like fiio x1. vmoda's built is military grade and case which will store all your player and headphones,, you will loveit..
