    Hello, I'm new in this forum and I hope you can help me out.

    I'm planning to buy some headphones in the <50$ range but I don't know which headphone to choose. I'm gonna use them in my desktop pc at home, nothing else.

    I have read great reviews of the following ones:

    Sony MDR-XB500 Sony MDR-XB500 40mm XB Diaphragm Driver Extra Bass Headphones: Home Audio & Theater

    JVC Xtreme Xplosives HA-M5X - JVC Xtreme Xplosives HA-M5X 3.5mm Connector Around-Ear Headphone

    JVC HA-RX700 - JVC HA-RX700 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Full-Size Headphone

    Audio-Technica ATHM40FS Audio-Technica ATHM40FS Precision Studio Headphones: Musical Instruments

    Which one is better? Would you recommend something else (max 60 dollars)?

    Thanks in advance

    From the different forums I hang out on, I've heard great things about the first 2 headphones you listed, for maximum bass. If it were me, I would buy the Sony, since they have several 'XB' models, and if you didn't like the one you got you could always exchange for a different one. Plus the Sony earpads are very comfortable.
