We have a little saying here at Headphone Charts “Once you go open-back, you never go back”. We firmly believe that once you experience the true-to-life soundstage and clarity that only a pair of open-back headphones can offer, you will never want to own a pair of closed-back cans again! Our Best Open-Back Headphones Under $600 list has compiled the best sounding, most durable pairs we have encountered.
