Great headphones don’t come cheap—except when they go on a killer sale, anyway. That’s exactly the case with the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, which is selling for just $90 at right now. They're refurbished, but don't let that hold you back. Most refurbs are like new, and since these are being fulfilled by Amazon, you can rely on the company's stellar return policy if anything goes awry.

In our testing, we found that these cans offer excellent sound quality, negligible distortion, and superb isolation. In daily use, we loved their classic design and comfortable fit. It should come as no surprise that they’re currently our favorite headphones under $150.
