You won't find recognizable brand names there, but you can get a quality sound for a cheap price.
At some point won't you end up buying enough to equal one pair of sturdy high quality headphones? I mean...listen to Paradise City on a good pair of headphones once and you'll hear things you never could before.
I misspoke. I probably only buy a pair of headphones once every 6 months.
I might spend $30 annually on headphones.
I currently have three pair of 'over the ear' headphones:
1. A pair of Sony MDR-V150's (held together with duct tape)
2. A pair of Skullcandy SCS-SCBP3.5's (which I hate...they require batteries for the subwoofer action)
3. A new pair of iVibe I-V110's (the high end is average, but the mid-range and low-end are excellent)
The iVibe's ran me $10 at BCF.
The iVibe's were the last headphones I purchased.
The Skullcandy headphones were a gift.
The Sony MDR-V150's I've probably had for about a year now.
I've spent maybe $36 on headphones the past 12-15 months.
I have picked up a few pairs of earbuds though (for the gym). The iWorld earbuds (modeled after the Beats By Dre earbuds) are amazing. They fit comfortably and have excellent sound quality. I messed them up during a workout though.
The iWorld earbuds were also $10 at BCF.
If you want good quality for a low price, that's the way to go.
You can also find quality OTE headphones at Big Lot's.
