A liberal budget of $150 means you need to make no compromise on the kind of design you want while getting the best caliber of music from them at the same time. Most of these units give you a good mix of bass and treble along with pretty clear mids and highs. Have a look at the frequency response of the headphone you intend to buy. Frequencies below 30Hz are the base frequencies while your treble is around 10KHz and higher; so if the headphones cover around 15Hz to 20KHz it should be sufficient for some awesome music.
The best headphones under $150 come in the most convenient designs from in-ear phones to those that go over the head, with the latter being able to fold inwards for a compact fit into your bag. However you might find some of these headphones come with two cables one each for the right and left speaker and this is often a setback for some folks. Our product listing below comprises only those highly rated headphones between the $100 and $150 range, so click on the model that appeals to you and watch a detailed video review to see if it suits you.
