Affordability doesn’t automatically equate to low quality. In fact, there are instances when a less expensive product is more satisfying and reliable and with higher quality than the more expensive ones. This is the case with some headphones. Sometimes, the price tag speaks of the brand name and not the overall quality.
For about $50, you can get not only decent over-ear headphones specifically designed for women but also great models that are at par with high-end models in terms of sound and style. Here are some of our favorites.
