    Sennheiser HD 380 Pro. $200 from B&H Photo-Video. Very, very satisfied, considering I've never really had decent headphones before these.

    On a semi-related note: I've found that turning up the volume, but not to the point where it starts clipping, and putting in a pair of 31 dB earplugs underneath the headphones helps soften the distortion from lossy audio compression. It's quite lovely. Or maybe I'm just insane.

    AKG 490NC.
    Cost about 300 euros, but the sound quality is better than some costing many times more.. No distortion at high volume either.

    Great noise cancelling, very comfortable and convenient to fold up so they're great for travel.

    I have Shure SRH440 headphones, but most of the time I'm forced to use crappy Sony earbuds for my listening. At least it gives me a nice surprise in quality when I return to the headphones.

    My headphones: SteelSeries Siberia. Quite good, though not fantastic. This has been my primary headset for about 5 years. I'm thinking about retiring them and getting a good pair of Denon headphones.
    My in-ear earphones: Ultimate Ears 600vi. Very good, far better than my headset. Excellent noise isolation.

    Can't bear in-ear phones, so use Grado SR60i...mercifully, I live in the country, so there's no one around to think I'm a prat when I'm walking the dog!

    I own the Klpisch S4 in-ear headphones and Klipsch 'ONE' over-ear headphones

    In my view you can find less expensive headphones that are comparible in sound but they have some wondeful benefits none-the-less such as the great sound isolating factor of the S4, and the sturdy quality and bonus excessories of the 'ONE'.

    So, I won a pair of Beats Wireless headphones at my office Christmas party today. I've listened to these at an in store live demo just out of curiosity before, and they sounded decent, but they didn't have any CM tracks that you could listen to, so I have no idea if they are appropriate for listening to classical music on. Does anyone have any experience with these for CM?

    According to some of the reviews I've read, they tend to be bass heavy, which makes sense considering the line is named after Dr. Dre. I've been thinking about buying myself a nice set of headphones, and I'm wondering if maybe I should ebay these and use the money to buy something a little more appropriate for classical. These retail for $280, so I'm betting I can get $200+ on ebay for them unopened.

    Yes, please, sell them for $200 and get a pair of AKG K601 or something similar for classical.

    I missed this post when it appeared last May. Kopachris, the proper statement here is that your earplug maneuver is just another symptom of your condition.

    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.
