    As the title says, I'm looking for good (great bass, but not muddy) cheap ($35 or less) HEADPHONES... not earbuds... On-ear or over-ear only please... Can be a headset, but doesn't have to be. WHEN POSTING, PLEASE INCLUDE PRICE AND/OR A LINK TO BUY! THANKS! Also, you can put what headphones you're using. This will be interesting:creep:

    Sennheiser HD201 ~$20

    I've had them for the past 7 years because I'm a cheap bastard. They work great, but they are a bit quiet so they are perfect if you are using a PC or a TV or a console. The cord is LONG and they are very comfortable.

    If you want cheap with decent quality sound and comfort I suggest Sennheiser 429s

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?&Item=N82E16826106642

    $59.95 use coupon EMCKAAT223 to take $25 off. Total = $34.95

    I use the non s version and its very light and doesn't squeeze your head.

    bass is good, after a little burn in from hours of regular use it will sound much better

    I also used to use the HD201, but it gets very uncomfortable after 2 hours or so

    Actually, the HD202 is objectively better, cost the same, and have a more reasonable frequency response according to this website.

    I've been using 202 and tried 201 on one occasion - they're not exactly comfortable for long use, but that might be because I'm used to my 518s now :^)

    That 429 does look like a good option too, if you want to pay a little more.

    Has the best sound I heard from a headset.

    My favorite so far. Works great.

    But he said no earbuds.


    My cousin have the Sony MDR XB950. Detailed and decent bass but I'm not sure how much they cost.

    Sennheiser 201s are great, never had a problem with discomfort, 203s however did hurt my head. The 429s are really nice but the cord is kinda long and thin/cheap feeling.

    I use Panasonic RPDJS400K Headphones. With the frequency response of 10 Hz-27 kHz and great noise cancelling these headphones produce very clean sound with great highs and hard hitting bass. And it costs only $17. It’s realy cool headphones!!
