Looking for ~$60 headphones for home use on a PC without a dedicated sound card

Well, I decided to go with CAD MH310, since based on the reviews they seemed like a good deal at $29.99 including shipping and since I got tired of waiting for SHP9500 to go on sale again.

Sonic-wise the HD 518 are the way to go. Although i dont like the pads on these. Havent heard the SHP 9500 myself, but they seem to be a compentent performer. Ive read that the earpads, which are just glued on, can tear off easily and are not replacable. Thats actually a deal breaker for me. I love me some replacable parts and dont buy headphones anymore that are just a "one way ticket", so to speak.
Havent heard the CAD, but  I own the HD 662 F and these can be very bright, too bright for some, but also very "airy" in a sense, because of that. The CAD look like HD 662 B though, so that might not be an issue.
