First of all, let me say i know about the best headphones from other threads, but due to budgets, i need to grab a new pair of headphones. Unfortunately money is scarce right now so i really need to comprimise. I currently own a pair of Creative Fatal1ty headphones (Not DJing headphones, but i had them lying around) and i am beginning to really hear a problem with the sound quality, bass particularly. So where can i pick up a reasonably cheap pair of headphones (preferably <50. I know its a small budget, but i am just learning right now, and i just need something with reasonable sound quality).

Any extra's that are non-essential, but would be nice:

Have some degree of sound-proofing
Detachable audio cable
Inline volume wheel

I'm not sure about the v55, but the mdr line is not bad. I have v700's and like them better than the shure srh750djs that broke on me.

For under 50 you're more realistically looking ateither as above or V500's.

Put off for now, save a little more cash and buy a half decent pair of HP's
Borrow some of friends or family for now. Buying cheap will mean just having to replace them sooner meaning spending more cash in the long run. And be careful purchasing from eBay etc if the deal seems to good to be true then it will be!
80-120 could get you some nice HP's that will last u years meaning more cash to put towards other cool stuff.
