Phones that have the "sound" type you prefer (Open sound, base sound, positional sound, etc.) .
Phones that match you budget.

What I tell people about choosing any sound equipment:
Read the reviews
Visit a store when you can try a variety of products (so you start to understand what the reviews are talking about)
Ask to hear products that cost 50% less and 50% more that to what you are listening.

And there are no "best" $50 phones, there are just some that aren't as bad as some others.

"Best" phone pricing starts around $300, so save up your money and buy what you really want/need, because if you're serious about what you're doing that's where you're going to end up, and you can save a lot of money by going there first. $50 ---> $100--->$150--->$250--->$350--->$500...(that's $1,400 to get there).
There is no way im going to spend $500 on a pair of headphones

S and non-S versions are the same other than the S doesn't get a pouch and the cable is different, so just get the cheaper of the two.
