Over Ear Headphone with good bass under $30

I'm in a pinch. One of my friends wants a good pair of over ear headphones for around $30 or less (estimated figure- he straight out rejected when I mentioned of a headphone costing around $55 USD). He mainly listens to rap and trance and edm, and highlighted that the bass has got to be good (I figure it means boosted and tight and extended; doesn't have to be fast or textured at this price and requirement). Before this I wasn't clear about what he wanted and he wasn't aware of my semi-audiophilic background lol, with nearly disastrous consequences (he didn't dare try the headphone that I brought to his place and never raised the matter again until recently when I probed him). If he accepted iems and earbuds, I believe I could have found something for him within the budget, but decent over ears? I have to admit it's beyond my current knowledge

Are there any over ear models you would recommend that sit within the budget?
That is a very very limited budget for full sized over ear headphones. About the only real option is these https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=8323 but they aren't very comfortable without aftermarket pads. May just want to tell your friend that is not reasonable and to change the style or their budget. I had friends with unrealistic expectations previously, they eventually come to understand the limitation of such a small budget. Used may be their best option

HAHA XD He probably would, if he gave some of them a listen 1st :p
Omg guys such timing- I checked again today and there's a 25% dis for the H840; so it's going for about $24usd now. I'm sure he'll get it XD Thanks all!
