Ideal headphones for everyday use?

Hey all,

Just dropping another question which followed from my previous post about file formats for my library and MP3 players, and one user posted the comment that headphones/speakers are (more often than not) the fault behind the limited sound quality, in this case, from my iPod.

I go around A LOT in my day (university, train journey, etc.) and I currently use my Sennheiser HD438's, which are really good; I love the bass feedback from the headphones and think they are fantastic.

But I was wondering what you guys use and whether you could recommend me trying other headphones, which I'm hoping to find in the price range of $150-$250.

So, what headphones do you use?

I personally use an older pair of Shure e2c's and m-audio IE-20 XB's.

Love the Shures and I am finding m-audio simply to be a quality brand for the price point.

Thanks for that! I'll be sure to look them up, do you know if they still manufacture them?

Thanks! I'll be sure to search for them around. Do you know if they still make them?

Here's a list of good headphones at different price ranges. I'm a big fan of Sennheisers myself. Been using my E-350's for about 3 years now. I'm noticing one of them is starting to crack a bit when listening to heavy base. Might be time to upgrade. My one complaint about these over-the-ear style phones is that when i'm active or when i wear them for a long time it makes my ears sweaty and my head hot.

Theres another set of reviews on headphones. Use the navbar on the lefthand side to see different categories of headphones.

Looks like the Sennheiser HD series scores pretty well across the board. Also, i've never tried Grado's, but it seems they get good reviews. They look big though, not sure i'd like to lug something that huge around on my head all day.

Th Shure earphones are no longer made, but you can buy them for about $60 anymore. The M-Audio's are still around
