Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a pair of affordable headphones (<$50 after taxes/shipping).


Use:
- listen to games/watching movies from my Macbook pro
- connected to my iphone while just walking around or while flying/travelling

Music types:
- hip hop, r&b, edm

Requirements:
- Comfortable, I need to be able to wear them for several hours. I would to be able to fall asleep on a plane with them on.
- not too worried about noise cancellation
- bass is nice but would rather want good audio quality all around over loud bass



I'm located in Florida if that matters. I usually buy my electronics from Amazon anyways.

Thanks for the suggestions! I definitely like what Ive been reading about the JVC HA-S500. The S500 is about 45.00 on Ebay but the S680 is $60 which I can still afford. Should I go ahead and purchase the S680?
 
Here's the ebay link:

I ended buying the JVC HA-S680 for $57.70 shipped on Amazon! Too bad I have to wait forever for shipping but I'm excited! Thanks again for the recommendations!

NIce!

The wait on receiving headphone equipment from Asia can be trying. Try to forget about them. LOL
