Default Best headset under $20-25?

Well, I've just had a logitech 300 premium headset right ear go out, everything eles is just fine but it bothers me alot having to fiddle with the volume control just to make both ears work for not even a minute. I need good headset suggestions for under 20-25 bucks, main priority being how long its going to last without any problems.

For the pirce, the HD201 is unbeatable. There is the Koss KSC-75, but they are open headphones, and they are clip-ons, and I don't think that is what he is looking for. The cheapest grado is $60 (SR-60)
so, umm, err yeah

yeah sennheisers are great. ive had a pair work for at least 7 years and the only reason i stopped using them is the foam fell off. they were really old though... i dont know if the quality has dropped or not.
