$80 is a pretty good price for a fine pair of headphones giving you the options of choosing the style that best suits you, whether it is in-ear phones, behind the ear models or the heftier ones you need. In-ear models are always best for noise isolation since they go deeper into the ear canal than those worn over the head.
However, music quality often tends to be higher in over-the-head headphones of the same price since they typically hold more powerful drivers required to produce good sonic waves. Our list of the best headphones under $80 comprises only those models in the range of $40 to $80 which are highly rated by expert headphone reviewers around the web
