Priced at just $40, the MEElectronics HT-21 falls into the same budget portable category as the Koss PortaPro and the Sennheiser PX 100-IIi sets, but delivers a balanced sound signature with less attention to bass despite their closed design. You can spend more for other pairs that block ambient noise, or that offer extras like a remote control on the wire, but you won't find a better combination of price and performance than the MEElectronics HT-21 headphones.

The good: The MEElectronics HT-21 over-ear headphones harmoniously blend comfort, durability, and balanced sound for a bargain price.
The bad: Noise isolation is nearly nonexistent despite their closed-backed design.
The bottom line: You may be fooled by their featherweight design, but the MEElectronics HT-21s earn our recommendation for their ample soundstage, subtle aesthetic, and portable convenience.
