The Famous Koss Porta Pro Headphones!
Here are some pictures of the Koss Porta Pros. These are my favorite headphones for under $50. If you

mid and high frequency response is great, and overall I have no complaints about their sound considering
the price. In the picture below you can see how the headphones collapse into a smaller package for travel
and compact storage.
