To recommend a headphone on a budget we'd first need to know the budget. Then how you would be using the headphones. Then any requirements you need to meet.

For that budget, my recommendation for sub-$100 headphones would be the Philips Citiscape Uptowns:

For $60 you can get the Noontec Zoro or the HD version if you don't mind the Beats derived design.  They are often on sale on Tanga for that much.

I can strongly recommend the SR80i

I'd recommend the SR80i also. It was the pair that introduced me to the hi fi world of headphones. They are fun sounding and easy to drive headphones.

now im thinking the koss dj100 anyone else have input on these

Open or closed?  If you're okay with open, the Superlux HD-681 EVO are really nice and only $40. The current ones should come with a set of velour pads as well as pleather (at least my order from Amazon did).

 

The DJ100 are closed and also $40 right now, which is a bargain. They aren't bass-heavy, but the bass is nice. They do react better with an amp, and the uncomfortable earpads should be replaced right away.
