B&H has the Sony MDR-7506 pro studio headphones for $82.95 (reg. $99). If you are monitoring or mixing any audio for video editing or otherwise want/need good, accurate sound these are a solid buy.
I paid the $100 retail price for mine a few years ago. They are the absolute best bang-for-your-buck studio headphones on the market – and have been for years. They are worth every penny of the $100 retail price and are a real bargain at $83 with free shipping.

Both units retail around $300. I have used both XLR recorders extensively and firmly believe the Tascam DR-100MkII is the better unit and certainly worth the $30 premium over the Zoom H4n kit. The Tascam has a lower noise floor and better control scheme. For more details, check out my comparison review of the Zoom H4n, Tascam DR-100MkII and Olympus LS-100.
