Budget headphones under $150

I’m looking for some openback/over-ear headphones under $150, I only use headphones for music and consuming media.

 

My previous research for this price point led me to a bunch of conflicting ideas, I just want to see your recommendations at this price point.


The devices that I use primarily to drive my other headphones/IEMs are my iPhone 7 and my Fiio btr3k.

Fidelio X2HR. I have a review comparing those to my old 990 pros. https://linustechtips.com/topic/1302705-review-of-the-x2hrs-and-compared-to-my-990-pros/

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

My PC specs & audio gear

CPU > Intel core i7 9700k, GPU > RTX 2070 8gb, RAM > Corsair Vengance 2x8gb 3000mhz, Motherboard > Z390 Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi, Storage > 1TB HDD & 2pcs of 500gb M2 SSDs, Cooling > H100I Corsair Platinum, PSU > Corsair RM750X V2

🎧Current Audio Setup For Gaming/Music🎧

Philips Fidelio X2HR as daily driver

Soundblaster AE-9 Soundcard

The T.bone SC400 XLR mic

Other peripherals

Keyboard > Razer Chroma v2 Orange Switches

Mouse > Cooler Master MM711, had a G502 HERO but was too heavy for my liking.

VR > Valve index kit

Why spend thousands on peripherals and your PC and forget one of the most important things... Audio.

Read this post if you want a "gaming" headset ;)

I don't know if you are familiar with companies that ACTUALLY makes audio products as their thing. Not keyboards/mice/other stuff. There are some exceptions since some companies such as Cooler Master or Kingston HyperX took a headphone that was already good then re skinning it to a headset with a mic. So no. Steelseries is not the best. They are mediocre at best for their price. Same goes with Logitech, Razer and others.
