3 Great Bose Headphone Alternatives Under £18
Feel like watch a late night movie with the sound on full blast while the significant other is sleeping? Here are 3 great value for money headphones for under £18 so that you can indulge without getting into a pillow fight:
1. Sennheiser HD 201 Closed Back Headphones | £ 11.99 | Play.com | Amazon.co.uk (Deal found by QenTox) Sennheiser has always been a respected brand, and they have always produced top-notch headphones. I'm personally a big fan of Sennheiser for the sound quality, which in my opinion is only second to Bose. In addition, unlike many popular brands on the market, Sennheiser products have been said to last for many years. The Sennheiser HD 201 headphones are perfect for music lovers, gamers, or anyone who wants a great bargain on a reliable product.
2. Sony MDR-ED12LP Fashionable In-ear Headphones | £4.99 | Play.com | (deal found by Sale) Sony is obviously an authority when it comes to consumer electronics, and they have established their dominant position in the headphone market with great products like the MDR-ED12LP in-ear headphones. Some people are not a fan of in-ear headphones (like me), because they keep falling out of my ear canal when I least want them to, but when it comes down to it they are much more convenient than normal headphones, especially when travelling around in a 3rd world country as a gringo with a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 3s.
A stylish design coupled with excellent sound quality and a bargain price make these Sony headphones a near necessity, and for the price of £4.99, you can't beat that. You can order these headphones here.
3. Koss PortaPro Headphones | £17.99 | Amazon.co.uk | (found by louiselouise) Koss is another leader in the headphone industry, and for good reason. Their products are some of the best, both in initial quality and value for money. Their headphones are designed to give you the best comfort and functionality without compromising on design. These do look a bit like something you'd wear to the moon, but they fold up so are good if you need something portable.
The Koss PortaPro headphones are currently priced at only £17.99 through Amazon UK. You can view and purchase the PortaPro headphones here.
