Super inexpensive headphones with pretty decent quality sound. They were purchased as a quick fix while waiting on my Sennheiser HD 25-1ii, I bought them at $17 and $5 for replacement ear pads. A month later as I write this, Monoprice still has them listed at $17.98 (9-7-15). Not fashionable on the head, and does get a tad hot.. but they're DIRT cheap! Give'em to your pops if you feel they suck that bad..
These are really great. Not much to say really, they do everything a pair of headphones should use. Not incredible bass, but just enough to where it's not overwhelming, and not too little of it. The sound is clear as day and sounds great.
