    Could anyone recommend a decent sounding pair of headphones (not blue tooth) for around $50 or even less? Something not to bulky either. They’d be kind of all around (i.e., listening to music, using with iRig). Thanks for suggestions!

    I have always had a fondness for AKG240's, they are studio standards ( I have 5 pairs) they range upto 200.00 but my last pair I found in a pawn shop for 40.00

    I suggest Superlux HD668b. Good sounding budget headphones.

    Sony MDR-7506 are a good quality set, probably in the $80 region in the US.

    I have a couple of sets of Sennheisers that I picked up at GC for under $50. I'm not at home so I can't give you the model at the moment but, they are good headphones.
