    Hi I’m receiving a Yamaha THR5 on Wednesday so I can do some low volume practice at night. I have some very low budget Sennheiser hd201 headphones , not sure how these will sound, would be interested to hear what reasonably priced phones people use on here to good effect with their THR .
    I could afford to spend about £50 uk , once items arrive her from the US we usually end up paying the same in £ as they cost in $ so tell me what $50 phones you guys get good results with.

    Also interested to hear of your Yamaha THR 5 and 10 experiences and stories. Here’s a cool demo

    I use Sennheiser HD1 Momentum... A bit more than the budget you mentioned but they do work well.

    I have low budget Sennheisers (closeout specials at MF) that sound great with my AX8. My Fender Mustang prefers MP3 style earbuds.

    The Sony MDR-V6 headphones (nearly identical to the MDR-7506) are often on sale on Amazon for just a bit over $50. They typically run about $70 to $90 or so. They have been used by many in Recording, TV, Film, and more, for decades. For the price they can't be beat. I have used them with my THR10C and they sound great. YMMV.
