Hey everyone,
 
I am a new audiophile and am new to this site. I'm looking for a good pair of headphones, preferably full bass cups, for under $50. I've looked at the Superlux HD668B but with shipping it was a little over my price range. Here are some I've also looked at:
 
Superlux HD681
Sennheiser HD202
Koss UR 29
 
Which of these would you recommend, or what other pair would you recommend over these?
 
Thanks,
 
Packboy5

I feel that the HD419 is very comfortable and is a steal for around 35 bucks.

I have had the Koss UR-50, which were good but in the end i stopped wearing them because they are on-ear. The bass was fantastic. I noticed the reviews aren't that good for the UR29 though.
 
You might also consider the Audio Technica ATH-RE70, AKG K519DJ, AKG K512, along with the Beyerdynamic DT235.

JVC HA S500.
 
 
These are amazing headphones,
using a new technology.
(Carbon nanotubes - it's not a gimmick.)
 
 
Thing is, they've got to be sourced from Japan.
Not a problem, but many folks think it is.
 
Mine took 4 days to arrive from Japan,
bought from an eBay seller.
 
Wow, what a bargain.
Upon hearing them, I immediately
ordered a second pair.

Thanks for the info, I ended up going with the Sennheiser HD 419 due to low cost, comfort, and strong bass. I'll try them out and post a review. If all else fails, I have a 30 day money back guarantee
