Well... I got some superlux 668bs of amazon and when i got them my head was to big for them (lol). My dad has a pair of barley used sony mdr-7506s hes willing to sell to me for $43. Should i get these or other headphones at this price. I mostly listen to dubstep and other techno music. So... is $43 for these headphones a good deal.

Good deal--yes.

 

Good deal for your music--not so much, but then what else is better at $43?

Those are very good for that price, and better than you will find without spending a good bit more. smily_headphones1.gif

Find out where he got them because there are a lot of fake Sonys.

Edit: With your music, HA-S500 is a better choice at that price.

I'm willing to go to $70 and I *might* be able to go to $80... Are these still a good deal around other headphones at $60-$80?

The MDR-7506 are one of the better headphones in that price range, and they are probably the most solidly built in terms of durability. But as Claritas pointed, the JVC HA-S500 might suit your music genre choices better. They have more bass emphasis than the 7506.

Is there anything in the $70 range that is better for my needs

Have you checked the budget headphones listed in the Buying Guide?
