Typically you don't get to see too much difference between a bunch of the best headphones once you cross the $150 price tag and the best ones deliver great sound quality along with the most impressive designs.

As long as your headphone spans a good frequency range of 15Hz to 20KHz and a 100dB sensitivity they're going to play some awesome music. Some of the best headphones at $200 are equipped to deliver an even broader range of frequencies going as low as about 5Hz and that's going to be some pretty deep bass. These models are perfect for DJs and studios when accurate audio is of utmost importance.

Speaking from the design perspective of the sub $200 headphones, there's no end to the convenience many of these sets offer. They fold inwards to for compactness, in-ear phones come with a handle to go around the ear, while others are fitted with very comfortable foam padding to sit over the ears. Our selection of the best headphones under $200, below, comprises only those models between the $150 and $200 bracket that are well recommended by expert reviewers around the web.
