Best Headphones Under $25 in 2016 - Buyer's Guide

You may wonder why I would review these headphones.Well, I bought new headphones! not one but two! It'll arrive shortly. For some, money is matter. When you are going to buy something you have to make sure you're getting what you're paying. Quality > Quantity. Putting that aside lets dive into our headphones reviews.

How did I select theses headphones?

I'm honest here. I do careful research online before buying anything. It's my habit now. However, all this opinion is not based on my opinions. My priority when selecting a headphone is always sound clarity. I do listen to the speech (yes!) and audio books. And I use memrise app to improve my vocabulary (I'm non-native).So pronunciation of words is important to me. I watch movies, listen to music but I'm not an audiophile. I'm a technophile. I'm a gamer, and I use headphone when gaming for precision sound. But half of the gaming headphones out there are gimmicks. So I use normal headphones.
The features of each headphone can be found on the internet. What we are not quite sure is the audio quality. But the sound quality depends on the file source itself. If there is any sound that is not caught by one headphone and not by other, then we could differentiate those two.
For that reason, i won't comment on the audio quality or sound quality unless I test it myself. And of these, i bought two to test it myself. It'll come next week. So I'll comment on that particular models. For other models, you can find what people say it on their reviews.
Why should I consider these models? Well, after primary, secondary and tertiary research I found these are the best headphones for budget and overall positive reviews.

After hours of research, this one is one of the headphones I bought. People recommends it. Every reviewer recommends it. But there is particular reasons why I go for it as well which I mentioned already. The cable length may seem odd. But I sit far away from my TV, and I need a long cable.
