Could anyone please give some good alternatives to beats solo hd? I like the look but I don't like the sound quality.  Please try go keep it under 60 dollars as I am not rich. I don't like my skullcandy earbuds after I got one gel piece stuck in my ear (stupid of me to do that 

Thanks

What type of genres do you listen to? Do they have to look stylish?

Koss Porta Pro/Sporta Pro
Also thinking something along the lines of the philips SHL 9500 though it's been a terribly long time since I've heard them.

While I can understand the practical concerns which drive people to closed headphones and IEM's, you simply must have an open design to get the best sound quality.
 
The koss portapro and sportapro are emblematic of great sounding headphones at a fantastic price: yes, they have an open design. However, they are also an amazing value. Koss has enough integrity to avoid marketing fads. They 'simply' deliver the best quality at the best price and have done so for many decades. Not only that, their warranty is the best in the business.
 
Many people for whatever tortured, illogical reasons, crave overspending. They like throwing their money away. If you are sensible enough to hold on to your hard earned money, koss headphones are amazing.

The Grado SR-60i, Sennheiser PX-100, or the Koss porta pro, I would honestly pay $30 more than what they're charging for those badboys.

Panasonic HTF600 offers good sound quality for the price, and you can do some EQ.

the Sennheiser PX-100 look pretty nice and affordable to me. I'll think I'll get those.
Thanks for the help
