what headphones to buy?

I'm looking to buy some headphones for my mp3player, because i'm sick and tierd of the cheap-o 15$ ones i've had for the past who knows how many years.

I'm willing to spend 40-60$ american.

I've looked online, ebay, amazon, but most of what i find are for home theaters. Anyone have any good suggestions for some headphones that I can plug into my mp3player?

Well, I was going to buy these, but then I came to the painful realization that I have no money

If you're willing to use a headset you can get great sound pretty cheap, only thing is, they're big.

If you're willing to wear 'real' headphones outdoors and don't need isolation, Sennheiser PX100 got very good reviews everywhere and are still quite compact. (The closed PX200 are much more problematic: if they don't fit perfectly on your ears you get no bass.)

Now thats different, i wouldnt be seen in the for love nor money, embarrasing. I usually perfer to have ear phones. I own a nice set that cost me £11, which isnt bad, the sound quality on them is brilliant.

good point. I forgot to mention that i want real headphones. not earbuds, and not just little pads that go on the ear, i want the ones that are big and encompas your ears, like the Napster Mascot, or the old Sony blue alien mascot.

Unfortunately the really big ones usually need more power than portables can deliver, and they cost more too.

The HD497 is bigger than the PX100 (and got 5 cans at headphone.com) but still doesn't go completely around the ears (probably depends on the size of your ears as well ).

Hi all
Is this good? They're supposed to offer surround sound, which might be a little too much for an mp3player...

You can get some Grado SR60s for about $70.

They're all about good sound, not looks. They're comfortable, though. Note: they don't "cover" your ears (they rest on them), so they don't block out ambient noise at all.
