The best you can do for that price range is a pair of sony MDR-V6.

I would put these at the best value for under $100. Very accurate (they've been the standard for reference monitors for years now), built like a tank, and fairly comfy.

I can vouch for razer.. my razer megalodons are awesome. And they are already like 3 years old and still working perfect. so they are incredibly durable and tough. I dont know how they sound compared to other headphones but they do sound amazing.

EDIT: i see my megalodons are a bit expensive, but they have a mic too and 7.1, which you don't need. so any model near 70$ in razer me personally would go for

any studio monitor headphones is good for music for that price range like the MDR-V6 or MDR-V600. i would avoid gaming headphones for music purposes.
