Headphones are a needed for a wide variety of entertainment devices, but they can often be in short supply, and they tend to be quickly lost or broken. A number of budget models are available that are established as quality products for their price-range; these vary from earphones to DJ-style headphones.

Panasonic RP-HT21

With a cost of around £3, as of 2011, and a frequency response of 16HZ-22kHz, Panasonic's RP-HT21 are a good choice if you're looking for headphones that are lightweight (34gr.) and comfortably cushioned. Additionally, the headphones feature Panasonic's own XBS acoustic ports, which are suggested to naturally improve bass frequencies when used with your audio-playing systems.

Coby Jammerz Isolation Earphones CVE52RED

The Coby Jammerz model offers several useful characteristics. A key feature is the sound-blocking design, which minimises the level of outside noise. Although higher-end models can be more effective at sound-blocking, for less than £6, the Coby Jammerz are a solid choice for music lovers on a budget. The earphones also come in a range of colours, adding an element of personalisation.

Jwin Jhp30

At around £3.50, the Jwin Jhp30 is a good choice if you're looking for a budget set of headphones with a reputation for decent quality. The headphones feature a retractable USB connector and have a cable length of 4 feet (which can stretch comfortably to audio devices placed in your pocket).

Coby DJ Style CV135BLK

At £4, these headphones are slightly more expensive than some other models, but they have a strong reputation for quality. The ear cups are considerably larger than some other budget models, ensuring a good standard for blocking outside noise from filtering through. The ear cups also swivel to allow for adjustment for comfort, and the audio lead features an in-line volume control (which is especially useful for quickly adjusting your music's volume on-the-fly without searching through your pockets for your audio device).
