30$-75$ head set that kicks (for a friend I have my ATH-M50's! He no has money for it.)

So he likes bass and music like that ... these will be work/gaming/@home headphones ...

So not a lot of bleeding of sound ... what do you guys think?

I would recomend the Turtle Beach X12's. I have a pair of them and they sound absolutly amazing! I put the link below so you can check them out.

Good Luck! smile.gif

Any guitar centers near you? I know they have AKG K44s or something you can try. I have a friend that has a k99 and they rumble. I would say it rumbled more than my ATH M50 when I tried em. Probably because they're a lot lighter. Semi open so a little sound leakage.

He got em on amazon for $50 or so.
