The price may be affordable, but Sims is a joke.

Head True Black XL 159 (a little short, but not a problem for a beginner and free Skullcandy headphones)
Technine Split T 163 (a little much, but free Skullcandy headphones)

You could also try to find an O-matic Awesome Wide.

You can find last years Forum Recon Wide, or Rome Manual for really cheap. I don't know if they have the sizes you need though, but they will serve you better than a Sims.
