Recommend me new headphones please

I'm almost sure this falls under hardware. Anyways, my junky headphones broke. I needed an excuse to get new ones anyways, and was holding on to these until they stopped working. $40.00 budget, want something decent that will work. Nothing fancy needed, just something to use in general uses.

Thanks in advanced.

Got a preference on style? Like earbuds or full ear cover? Need a mic with it?

I prefer a full ear cover with a mic.

Would a gaming headset be a bit much for just general use?

$40.00 budget? That's pretty shitty if you're looking for good quality. My Dr. Dre beats were 150, and I'm pretty sure they're the cheapest they had. Anywho, for the money, id roll with Skull Candies. That might bump you up to abot $50. But they're pretty damn nice. No links right now due to being on my phone.
I also feel this doesn't really belong under Hardware.

For those about to rock.

I figured keeping your spending range around 40 and with a mic, might as well get something that would last you for awhile, and if you ever did want to use it for something more you could. But again, it was just a suggestion.

I wasn't sure either, should it be in off topic then?

This is a good pair of noise cancelling headphones. I've owned a pair for a couple years with heavy use and no problems.
However, if you feel like splurging, buy these: http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT ... 255&sr=1-1

Best headphones you can buy for < $600. They are amazing.

Dont quite have everything you wanted, as no mic. But for the price, they are very good standalone headphones :)

Moved on to £250+ Bose noise cancelling ones now though :D
