Best headphones at approximately $20

byjesusfr3ak4evr Dec 20, 2005
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Crisp highs Powerful, clear lows Good mid Comfortable Long chord
Cons For $20 there are no cons on these seemingly perfect cheap headphones.
Recommended it? Yes

I've owned these headphones for a couple years now. This Christmas I'm upgrading to some Sennheiser HD 212 Pro headphones, and to say the least, I'm VERY reluctant to give up these cans. I really don't feel any incentive to upgrade other than knowing that these new headphones HAVE to be better... Read full review »


Can't beat these headphones

Pros Long, gold-plated cable. Comfortable earcups, and great sound quality.
Cons cable may wear after a while. Maybe b/c I was too rough with it though.
Recommended it? Yes

As an ex-gamer (although I still play a bit, just not so much) I would frequently sport these headphones at LAN parties, and would often try on my friends' headphones just to see the difference. Several pairs of 'phones I tried on were $60 or more and they always felt and sounded CHEAP compared to... Read full review »

Pros Good bass, price, long tangle-free cable, self-adjusting padded headband
Cons Slips of easily, slightly on the bulky side
Recommended it? Yes

This mighty head phone from Labtec packs a punch for a pretty low price. Designed specially for accurate bass reproduction, it delivers pretty well. It managed to reproduce sound accurately even when the volume was cranked up high.

Tested it using various games, chiefly Halo, delivering... Read full review »


Best 20 bucks I've spent in my life. Without a doubt.

Pros $20, unbelievable sound quality for sub-50 dollars, comfortable for hours.
Cons Bass is weak, but with a boost (which basically everything has) is superb.
Recommended it? Yes

I'm really picky when it comes to sound quality. I look at people listening with cheap Sony headphones, and I can do nothing but cringe. THAT ISN'T HOW MUSIC IS SUPPOSED TO SOUND!!!

My brother and I fall into the category of "Audiophiles". We love our music. No, not like that... Read full review »

Pros Very comfortable. Wonderful sound. Light single sided cord.
Cons None whatsoever at this price.
Recommended it? Yes

What an unbelievable deal! Even disregarding the ridiculously low price that I paid ($1.99 Canadian after $13 mail-in rebate) these headphones are extremely comfortable and are of audiophile quality. If I wanted to be really picky, in fact it is not warranted under the circumstances of the... Read full review »


Don't forget you have them on!

Pros Self Adjustable, comfortable, great sound.
Cons Exterior noise, big size.
Recommended it? Yes

I needed a new pair of headphones primarily because my older ones didn't make good contact at connections (sometimes I would lose sound on one side). The older ones were given to me indirectly because the guy wanted to upgrade and I was amazed with the sound quality. Those older audio-technica... Read full review »

Pros Beautifully sounding headphones! Comfortable and lightweight. Highly detailed.Accurate!...
Cons Some sound can be heard by others nearby. Plastic earcup swivels susceptible to breakage.
Recommended it? Yes

The Labtec Elite 840 is simply the pinnacle of where value per dollar meets performance! OK, review over...Not quite but that pretty much sums it up though. In addition they are an attractively styled lightweight complete earcup binaural design with black and silver trim that fits indeed very... Read full review »

Cons None
Recommended it? Yes

First, let me say that I whole heartedly agree with "shido6". I think many people will simply overlook these great headphones because of their ridiculously low price. I've listened to dozens of headphones in my 30 plus years as an audiophile. Believe me, these babies can hold their own with some of... Read full review »


If you want good sound, good feel, Get the Elite 840 Labtecs

byshido6 Feb 5, 2003

Pros Feel great for long hours of use Great Sound Inexpensive
Cons People underestimate these wonderful headphones because of its price.
Recommended it? Yes

The velvet earpieces feel great for long hours of listening. No more manually adjusting for size. Just put them on and they fit to your head.

The worst thing you could do in this case is to judge the quality of these headphones by looking at the price.

When I'm at home, I want... Read full review »

Pros Good treble, very comfortable
Cons reletively weak bass for 50mm drivers
Recommended it? Yes

Well I happen to love headphones, and probably have 8 pairs in my room. Everytime I see a pair, I have to get them. I've had the GE vibrating headphones, which were good until the vibrators wore out, and rattled, so those were gone. After that I bought the philips folding headphones (SBC- Hp550's)...

Wonderful Headphones - Labtec 840

3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros extremely comfortable, tight bass
Cons None for a headphone that is as cheap but as good as this one.
Recommended it? Yes

I've had this headphone for about 2 months now and I recommend it to anyone who needs to buy a headphone. I paid $19.99 on sale.

Primary comparison is made to the famous Grado SR-60 (about $80) headphones and Sennheiser 580 headphone (I paid $175 for this one). I use the 580 as reference... Read full review »
