I have 4 gift cards to Best Buy & want some good headphones for under $120.  I have some old Sennheiser HD437, but want deeper bass.
 
I listened to Beats in the store & they sounded good, but not $200 good, plus everyone on this forum hates them.
 
I would buy Sony XB500 / XB700 or something like that, but don't want them to be so bulky.
 
Any ideas???
 
 
PS:  They don't have to be ONLY from Best Buy, as I can sell the gift cards on eBay.  :)

Despite how ugly the PortaPros are, I've read alot of good things.  And for $35... can't go wrong.  If they suck, then I'll just go buy some Beats.
 
Any other suggestions are still being considered...
 
Thanks

I got the PortaPros as a Christmas present, and to be honest I am shocked by how good they sound for the price! Just a nice, laid back sound with surprising clarity and a decent soundstage. As long as you aren't worried about isolation, you can't go wrong with them for value IMHO.
