The open-back headphones are very popular due to its improved quality sound and the comfort which it gives to the user while you are listening to music with it. The closed-back headphones can distort whereas open-back headphones did not reflect off the backplate and produce the sound that resembles the original sound of the artist. The sound in the open-back headphones is also wider than in closed-back headphones. In this article, 7 best open-back headphones that you can fewer than 200 dollars are discussed. 

Why need such expensive headphones when there are some low price headphones available?

It is of course a fact that there are plenty of headphones and earbuds available in the market then why you need to spend too much money on these expensive ones. If your concern is only to listen to the music then surely you can get that inexpensive one. But if you are editing and mixing music then they will not work. That is why open-back headphones are recommended as they produce a real sound. So let’s discuss the best open-back headphones for under 200 dollars.

1. Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Open Studio Headphones

Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Open Studio Headphones

These headphones are also available for 200 dollars. They provide you great comfort and extraordinary sound quality that is not disturbed by any kind of distortion etc. these are very thin and light to carry on your head. But as usual, you cannot remove its data cable.

2. Audio Technica ATH-ad900X Open-Back Audiophile Headphones

Audio Technica ATH-ad900X Open-Back Audiophile Headphones

This is available in the market at 135$ and considered as affordable because of its high-quality sound and comfort. These are very light so you will not feel any burden by wearing them but its headband is very delicate so it might break quickly than other headphones. If your concern is excellent sound and affordable price then these headphones can be the best choice for you.

3. Philips Audio Fidelio X2HR Over-Ear Open-Air Headphones 

These are available at approximately 145 dollars with good sound quality. However, the sound did not up to that level as the other discussed open-back headphones have. It facilitates with an adjustable headband and a very attractive design.

4. Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones

Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones

These headphones are offered by Sennheiser at 175 dollars. My favorite feature is its stylish body and excellent sound quality. It is built for your comfort as it does not stretch your hair with its headband. It provides a detachable cable and relaxed ear pad. But it negative point is that you cannot wear glasses while using them as well as it does not work with all types of cables. 

5. Philips SHP9500 HiFi Precision Stereo Over-Ear Headphones

These headphones are available at an extremely low price of 75 dollars. It must be surprising for you because at this stage you are ready to spend 200 dollars without any difficulty. Even at a very low price, it gives you an excellent sound and eases to wear it. But it does not produce a wide sound than the other discussed headphones. 

6. AKG Pro Audio K612PRO

AKG Pro Audio K612PRO

These headphones are lighter and provide excellent sound quality at 115 dollars. It is more worthy in the market due to its high-quality sound. But these headphones are not very comfortable and there are fewer options in them. The cable and ear pads are also non-detachable.

7. GRADO SR225e Prestige Series Wired Open-Back Stereo Headphones

GRADO SR225e Prestige Series Wired Open-Back Stereo Headphones

As the title said you have to buy headphones for fewer than 200 dollars then these headphones are the best for you.  If you will spend on them, then you will get stylish and tremendous sound quality headphones. But same as the AKG PRO you cannot detach cables and ear pads in these headphones. 

Last verdict:

By the end of the article if you want me to choose the best one for you is the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Open Studio Headphones. It wins the race in quality sound.
