    Hey guys, haven't posted in a couple weeks. Last time I posted I was buying a PC Headset... I bought one and its amazing.
    Now my dad wants some headphones!
    Not a headset, just a 3.5mm headphone.
    He wants 3 things in them :
    Wants them to be cans
    Wants them to sound good obviously
    Wants them to be under $40 shipped

    He listens to a lot of jazz and bass/treble heavy music. I found these for $22 shipped and wondered if you guys could find me any deals?
    BTW NO EBAY!

    Also I just found these....

    Yeah, I would go for Sony headphones.

    The XB300's are nice. I'd get those.

    (The bigger XB500's are $50 shipped though... SO close to the limit, but bigger ear cups and speakers...)

    Eh, thanks for responses, but...
    I asked my dad and he said no higher than $40 no matter what, especially since I already found some decent ones for under $30...
    Also, he HATES Koss with a passion. He DETESTS them. Like, he hates Koss like republicans hate Obama.
    Thanks for your suggestions, any more are welcome.

    Hey, those looked okay but every where I checked those seemed they seemed to be backordered....

    Just being honest, you won't find any headphone better than the PortaPro's at your price range. May I ask about your fathers distain for Koss?
