The headphone renaissance is booming and there are now a ton of models that sell for under $100 that offer better sound, looks, and durability than ever before. Finding the perfect fit for your needs can be tough. So I put together this value-packed list with the best cans under $100. Whether you are an early-morning gym warrior or a budding podcast producer, there should be something for everyone here.

Best First-Time Buds
Made For: Price-conscious new headphone buyers
Why you should buy them: The Shure SE112 is a major sonic upgrade from the standard, in-ear speakers that come with phones these days.
Best Cans for the HD Content Producer
