AKG K 430
Advantages: Cheap, compact, foldable, volumne controller, design, sound quality
AKG isn't a well known brand. I was very skeptical when I received them for Christmas but even a quick listen in a small busy shop changed a few perceptions surrounding them. They are not too bad at blocking out background noise in busy surroundings so I thought why not give the heads up for receiving these.
I am pretty impressed by them, the sound quality is very good. Surprisingly so for how cheap they are, but I will say they won't be as good as a set of Beats headphones. The sleek silver design is attractive and timeless and the size also makes it easy to carry them around in a bag. They are not oversized and this is a major bonus if you're using them when commuting or for long journeys. You can also change the volumne on the headphone wire itself which is also a little bonus.
The only thing that niggles me a little is the feel of them. They feel a little cheap (but not as cheap as what Skullcandy can feel like) but to be honest when you're paying under £50 is that really something to worry about? No. They come with a one year warranty anyway so this should really put your mind to rest.
All in all, a good set of cheap headphones that I'd easily recommend to others.
Summary: Cheap headphones at their very best
