Any suggestions for good, moderately priced, stereo headphones that I can listen to music on the computer with?

The headphones I presently use have sound only on one side due to a bad wire in the other side.

I've got a set of Klipsch headphones, which I love. Cost about $50.

Uneven been a big fan of head phones.

That being said, I use Sony when I'm on the spin bike.

$50

I'm not looking for anything spectacular, but I don't want some tinny junk either.

I don't know.   I never heard of them.

I looked up Klipsch headphones and they are quite spendy.  I don't think they have the $50 ones anymore.

I've been looking at headphones that have detachable 3.5mm cable jacks. I'm gonna have a look at getting a pair of those HD 668Bs when (hopefully not soon) my current headphones fail me. I currently use the Sony MDR-ZX110 headphones.

I'm far from an audiophile but I've really enjoyed these. They're definitely really good for the price. I've seen plenty of more expensive headphones with much more dire ratings

Try these songs in your headphones!

I listen to a lot of music from my MAC with headphones.

I bought the AudioQuest DragonFly USB DAC/Headphone amplifier + Grado headphones ( total $200 ).  Love them !

For under 50 , sony or perhaps phillips would be a good bet

Another place to try is monoprice, ive had good and bad luck with them. But man some of their stuff is amazing for the price.

I used to have a set of these and they were really nice and light.  Good sound quality too. In this price range I think they are one of the very best.
