Yeah, Dunu trident, about 40 dollars. Pretty decent sound quality. The design is similiar to Monster turbine.

Headphones the Monoprice tried it before for that price there's really nothing you can further expect. Most headphones go above $50 except for the models below:

Creative HQ 1600
Sony MA100

How's Sennheiser HD-201 compared to these 2 models?

If you do not much bass it would suit you for the HD201 but for portable use the cable is really pretty long.

If the cable length of 3m is not a concern, its a balanced sounding headphone and its circumaural too so its more comfortable over the long run

Yeah monoprice is great for under 50 bucks. No wait it's much less than 50 bucks.

monoprice headphones hehehe have to order

but i think for long haul flights u should spend on something on active noise cancelling headphones instead like bose qc5 or sennheiser pxc 250 or audio technica anc23
but this cost 150-300 but this would kill out more noise during flights and actually better for listening comfortably and not only that but it saves your hearing too
