ATH-M30 without a single doubt.

But, just for the sake of noting, if you are willing to bump the price up to $100 instead of 50 you could get an even better level of introductory audiophile phones. It’s also important to know what exactly it is you plan on using them for.

It depends what you are using them for. If you are trying to get a cheap alternative to studio monitors for mixing purposes, headphones are a really bad way to go. If its your only option I’d step up your price to $100. The Sony MDR’s for that price are really sworn by for this purpose in the industry.

If you want headphones for listening purposes, it’s tough to give advice because I don’t know what you like. I don’t know if you like a lot of bass, or if crisp treble gets your dick hard, etc…

@lytning91, @alexmayle, I want to use them for casual listening: when I’m walking around at school or skating. I’m just a kid, so my equipment don’t need to be studio quality, just something better than usual so I can ease into having better tastes.

@zacsolomon, well if those are the price range you are looking at, the ones I said are by far a really good deal for the price.

Again, though, if you can save a little bit longer and get up to the $100 mark it will be a very different world for your music.

@zacsolomon, If they are just for listening purposes, I would say any of those headphones are good. I’d probably go with the Sennheiser’s just because they make good studio monitors.

I was a producer for about 4 years before I got bored with it, and I really built up a discriminating ear for music. I think the biggest thing to keep in mind is to make sure your audio files are at least 256kbps. Other than that, as long as the headphones can produce a good range of bass (ie not apple earbuds) you should be fine.

I use bose earbuds for $100. Absolutely love them.
