Cheap headphones for actors

I need two or three pairs of cheaper headphones for actors and stuff that I sometimes record. I want them to be durable and comfortable and sound at least "ok". They're not my main cans so they don't have to be super hifi, you know. Just durable and comfy. And not open ones - at least semi-closed. And circumaural but that goes without saying I guess. Oh, and keep it under a hundred bucks. Way under.

Suggestions?

Found these...then I started thinking. Didn't I read something about counterfeit pro audio gear somewhere?

Can these really be genuine Sonys?

Sure, they're 45 bucks if you count the ridiculous shipping fee but STILL. What do you think?

Audio Technica ATHM20's should be sufficient. Comfortable, maybe not quite as durable as some, but if it's just studio work they should be fine. And you described the sound very well "ok".
Should be able to find a pair for between $40-$50.

thanks Pets, i was just going to do a post about this...

I am also looking for cheap headphones, however they are for musicians and that guy that hangs out with the band (drummer). I got about 20 people coming into the studio and need a lot of cheap headphones. I have a bunch of 240s and 7506s but I need a few more. they gotta be around $50 or less. cheap sennheiser's, akg's or what???
