Default $20 Headphone Recommendation

Does anyone know a site or have recommendations for $20 headphones?

I was luckily able to get Sennheiser CX-300 from J&R for around $25 and my friend's been wanting to buy them off me. Since I'm probably going to keep these, she'll need to get some headphones for $20. The only good ones we know about are the JVC Marshmallows.

If you can come up with 50% more $, you can get the Razer Morray. (love em to death). I really don't know any quality headphones at 20$ though. =\

Honestly, I'm not 100% sure what's around for $20, but from what I've heard the Marshmellow's are probably the best "value" 'phones out there (though it's been a while so it's quite possible something is better then them at this point). I still recommend saving for a bit longer and spending on a pair of Grado's, unless of course your looking for IEM's.

Soundmagic PL-30, I have been using them for a while, the sound quality is really good for the price.

This is what you want: NCIX.com - Buy Creative Labs EP-630 Stereo Noise Isolating Earphones 6-23000HZ 16 Ohm Black - 51MZ0085AA030 In Canada.

Killer headphones for the price IMO.

They are the same units as the Senns and Razer Moray.

That's a lousy price. I bought a pair from Dell for $17 a year and a half ago. They can probably still be found for around $20 around the net. Great earbuds, but I'd look for a better deal.
