For $50, the Audio technica SJ3 is a good choice, you also have a color choice of black and white. If you need another option, the sennheiser HD201 is not bad too.

If you don't mind this ugly looking neckband headphones, try this sounds good but looks yucks headphones. I think they're on offer at stereo. Used to be at $49.90.

Koss KSC24 Stereophone

High Quality Sound in a Collapsible Behind-the-head Design

The ultra-light KSC24 Stereophone delivers high quality sound in a behind-the-head design that folds into an ultra-compact configuration that tucks neatly into a gym bag, backpack, or briefcase. The KSC24 features dynamic elements that deliver exceptionally rich, deep bass and a remarkably wide frequency response from 18-22,000 Hz to capture every nuance in your favorite movie or musical performance. Constructed from mylar, the elements are extremely rigid, minimizing mechanical distortion and ensuring exceedingly accurate sound reproduction. Neodymium iron boron rare earth magnet structures enable the KSC24 to deliver greater volume so you can hear every note, even when competing against the sounds of a commuter train with a low-voltage MP3 or disc player. Oxygen free copper voice coils improve signal transmission and conduction for cleaner, clearer sound. Foam earcushions provide an open, hear-through sound that lets you keep in touch with your surroundings perfect to wear while running, at work, or while traveling.

At only 2 ounces, the KSC24 wears comfortably even after hours of listening. Accommodating all head shapes and sizes, the KSC24's headband won't interfere with hair, hats, or helmets, and stays in place even during rigorous activities like jogging and skateboarding. Perfect for use with portables, the KSC24 includes a straight single-entry four-foot cord. A 3.5mm (1/8") plug, L-shaped to minimize cord stress, is included.

A great value, the KSC24 is ideal for active listeners seeking high quality sound that packs well, travels light, and looks good.

Also copy and paste from Koss webbie.

yuin is a china based brand and are quite highly ranked at head-fi and alike for their incredible earbuds.
however the PK3 should cost more then 50SGD.

the SJ1 sounds good for the price
of course, you should take a trip down to stereo electronics to have a look at them and many other options

SJ1 > SJ3 in terms of price = quality?
You know the headphone shop in Illuma? Do they have a lot of headphones?

SJ3 is worthwhile the extra, my friend who bought it after her SJ1 died said the same thing too. But test it first at stereo would help decide unless you can't tell the difference.

The illuma store is headphone gallery, although that name but not the headphone store I thought when I initially step in. I remember their AT stuffs are slightly higher priced compared to the average headphone store. Unless stereo is out out of the way, if not I would recommend you pay them a visit to try and ask for quality advice.

Audio Technica sj3 is pretty good. i have a pair, and i tried out both the sj1 and 3. in my opinion, the SJ3 has warmer sound while the sj1 has slightly clearer vocals. Personally i found the SJ3 to be more comfy.

actually im selling them, as i found out headphones dun really suit me.......i bought mine about a few weeks ago, and im letting it go for 45. you can sms me at 96623110 if ur interested.

sorry if i seem like im touting or something, im just giving my opinion.

Why is it not suitable for you?
Does it have the 'clamp' feeling for you?

Headed down to Headphone gallery today and well, the shop is called GALLERY but the shop proves otherwise.
Don't remember seeing ATH products but many panasonic and skull candy.
