Sennheiser PMX 60 Review

Best Running Headphones Under $50

Sennheiser PMX 60 Review

These Sennheiser’s are great for running, it’s hard to find comfortable, loud enough headphones for running for a good budget.  They are open headphones, so they wrap nice on your head and don’t fall off and you can still hear noises around you.  *Although take caution if you’re in the city or around cars or things that can injure you not to turn it too loud.   A lot of people don’t like the earbuds as much for running because they seem to fall off pretty easy, these stay on tight and have that nice wrap around addition so they don’t fall off.  They’re loud enough if you’re on a treadmill or running that you can pick up the sound very well.


-Great for running-Opened eared so you can still hear your surroundings.

-Low Cost

-Comfortable and light

-Loud enough for running without a headphone amp (Good for Ipods and MP3’s with no need for amp)

-Don’t fall off


Sound leakage, if you’re not using them for running or working out people around you can hear what you’re listening too if you’re in quieter places.


Sennheiser makes great quality headphones and if you love running or working out and you’re on a budget these are the perfect fit.

The Koss Porta Pro are the greatest bang for your buck under 50 as far as over the ear and portable.  Over 90% percent of the reviews had this one at a rating of 4 or 5 out of 5 here.  The Koss Portapro are a mid-size supraural open-back portable headphone.


-Warm Sounding with emphasis on the the bass(but not too overpowering)

-Best portable low priced headphones for iphone or mp3 players, these collapse and fold well.

-Very comfortable.

-Reproduces instruments clearly.

-Large soundstage

-Lifetime Warranty-Just send them to Koss with a cash or a check for return shipping and they will send you a new pair no questions asked.


-A little heavy on the bass

-Open headphones, so there will be sound leaking.   If you’re in a loud place it won’t be cancelling noise and others may hear if you’re blasting them.


These are the best bang for your buck in the under $50 dollar range.  If you’re looking for ipod or mp3 player portable headphones, these are great.  If you’re going to be using them in loud places these aren’t for you.  A headphone amp would help but not necessary at this stage.  They are also great because they are very comfortable and have a lifetime warranty.  If you’re not looking to spend much but still want a taste of the high quality headphones this is the headphone for you.
