Best Headphones 2016: 14 best headphones for any budget

Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7

Originally reviewed by Andrew Williams 26 January 2015

Over-ear headphones for less than £200

Key features:
  • 45mm driver
  • Balanced sound
  • Removable cable
We think of the ATH-MSR7 as the classed-up version of the ATH-M50X. They have a more elegant design and a more grown-up sound.

These are full-size headphones, with metal ear cups and a comfortable fit. They’re not quite as pretty as the arch rival Sony MDR-1A from Sony, which are also worth considering at the price. However, their tuning is a little better to our ears, with better bass control and a little more detail in the mid-range.

We have heard a few suggest they’re a little more tiring, though. So if you’re looking in this price range, be sure to consider the Sonys too. 

Price: £169
