Whether its quiet hours or your roommate just needs to study, you won't always be able to crank up a sound bar to listen to movies. Audio-Technica's ATH-M50 are the easy pick for comfortable headphones with outstanding sound quality that are perfect for connecting to your Roku 3's remote. Their over-the-ear design also makes them great "study" headphones, as they block out a good deal of outside sound.

The good: The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones offer excellent build quality and very detailed, balanced sound with tight bass. They're also very comfortable and are a relative bargain.
The bad: There's no integrated microphone for making cell phone calls; the bulkier design makes them less suitable for mobile use; and the headphone cord isn't detachable.
The bottom line: The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones are among the best available for less than $200, offering excellent sound and build quality.
