    "Attractive headphones that come in several colors. The ratings are good and the price is reasonable. Cheap ones won't last so you expect to pay at least $30 for good headphones like these. "

    "Avantree Audition headphones are abudget type under $50. The battery life is long. The money savings must come from the lack of a microphone which is fine if you don't use them for calls. "

    "These headphones are well reviewed and for good reason. Easy to use, comes with a hard case if you need a way to store them in a bag without getting hurt, and comes with a built in microphone. For under $50, it'll work very well. Obviously not as good as more expensive ones but does the job quite well."

    "These headphones are not very good at all for my needs. They are only one penny below $50, and they are bizarrely designed so that much of the sound escapes the headphones and others around you can hear what you're listening to. That is not something I want."

    "Finding a good pair of headphones for less than 50.00 can be difficult. I bought the Sony MDRZX110AP. I use these everywhere, including at the gym where they stay in place better than many earpiece units I've tried, on my mp3 player, tablet or computer for music or tv/movie watching, for audio books and for phone use. There is a slightly cheaper version of these that don't have the microphone but for hands free talk from my phone I can hear those I speak to very well and I also am told I can be heard well too.If you're looking for a pair of new headphones buy these. For the price they can't be matched, just remember you're buying them for less than $20 so don't expect any thing too crazy in the build materials and quality"
