20 of the best headphones for students, according to reviews

If you live in a big city, then you probably noticed people wearing colorful headphones while on busy sidewalks. These cool cats are probably sporting a pair of Urbanears Plattan 2, which is our pick for best budget on-ear headphones. While they are stylish and vibrant, the Plattan 2 from Urbanears are mighty powerful and clear with a warm bottom-end, charming highs, and a deep and impactful bass. For less than $45, the pair are comfortable to wear thanks to thick ear pads, yet durable and tough enough to stand up to a daily commute to and from school. The headphones offer up really good passive noise isolation with a stylish and fun look. They are also collapsible, so you can throw them in a backpack without giving up a lot of space. However, the best thing about them is the removable 3.5mm wire which allows you to place them in either the left or right ear cup. And since both sides have a 3.5mm jack, you can daisy chain two or more other Urbanears Plattan 2s together for the ultimate dance party or movie session with friends. Amazon customer LOVE! writes: 

“I absolutely love these headphones! These are my very first pair of over-ear headphones, so I was nervous at first because I’ve only ever used earbuds, but they’re great! Extremely comfortable, amazing sound quality (in my opinion, as good of quality as my Bose earbuds!), and adjustable. I like how I can fold them up and stick them in my backpack, though I usually keep them around my neck. These headphones are so good that I rarely use earbuds now. I love the soft feel around my ears and the sound. Worth the price! Definitely recommend!”

The Urbanears Plattan 2 go for just $44.95 on Amazon. The headphones come in a wide variety of stylish colors like black, blue, gray, pink, purple, white, and much more. There’s also a wireless version that goes for $99.95, which is a bargain for such a stylish pair under $100.
