    I wanna get my first pair of full sized headphones, maybe under $20.

    This is a store near my house (Ottawa) that sells pretty cheap stuff in a fraction of other stores. I was wondering, since I am music noob, can you guys pick out a good pair for me that under $20/25 or under. If you don't see any good ones, can you link me up with a pair that I can buy online. Perferably not eBay since they'd block my eBay account and I don't want to open a new one.
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    You won't get any decent ones for under $20, if you got an iPod just use the headphones you got with them, they will be tonnes better quality...

    I do not mind if they're not decent, just something comfortable I can wear that would drown out my mom's voice if possible. I have a bunch of in-ears, but I find even my Shures are very uncomfortable.

    And I'm looking for FULL SIZED headphones, not earbuds.

    Ah, Hmmm, for some decent over ear headphones which can actualy cancel out some noise they're about $50, but then again theres some $15 ones in that link that would probably do the same thing if you consider music drowing out things noise cancelling

    How can you find Shures uncomfortable? :| The foam tips are the most comfortable ones to use. $20 will get you nothing that good. I'm trying to find some. How about these?

    Yeah, I use foam ones and they were uncomfortable at first cause I never used them before, they itch sometimes but they're awesome for the price... (£50)

    SE110's? They are pretty decent, just the lack of bass because they only consist of 1 balanced armature driver. The SE115's were recently released and they have a dynamic driver, therefore giving it more bass.
