I have a pair of Pioneers that are decent, and only 25 bucks. They're 16ohm impedance, 18-22khz, 9mm driver.

Beats are awsome, i have the solo which are the cheapest over ear. but they still sound amazing cant switch back to in ear....

If your looking to buy the beats by dre do NOT get the Solo's make sure you get the Solo HD they fixed all the problems with the regular solo's and they also fixed a design flaw in the head band. Alot of people would complain about it just snapping with out any over use. I myself own a pair of the Solo HD and I think there AMAZING it never had a better pair of headphones in my life! If you got any questions about them just ask!

EDIT: Just seen you wanted something cheaper than the beats lol look into these

If you actually want good phones, look at the Shure SE115s, or Sennheiser CX 300-IIs. The Shures will sound amazing, but are much more expensive.

I've got a pair of Shure SRH-440 headphones, and they're the best headphones I've ever used. They've got a flat frequency response, isolate all noise at around 40% volume, and don't distort even at 100.

Beats are about like Bose. Horribly overpriced, mediocre sounding name headphones.

And Skullcandy headphones are even worse: horribly overpriced, awful sounding fashion headphones.

If your a bass head look into the sony xb500's
its like having a pair of subs strapped on your head...
