    I'm a headphone freak. [​IMG]
    well... not that kind of freak...

    so how about them cans?

    ^ these are some great sonys but NOT for wearing around.
    I dont care how bad you want to look like a dj, with your record
    bag and your stanton t-shirt, please dont wear them outside.

    ^ these are some nice light weight sennheisers. This company does some great work.

    ^ this is the mother of all headphones. The Sennheise Orpheus.
    Too bad they cost well over 10 grand.

    ^ Here's the Shure E2 earbuds. Apparently the sound is amazing,
    and at the price.... it damn well better be!

    ^ these are the koss plug. They only cost about $20 so I think
    I might pick up a pair this weekend.

    The shure e2s are actually pretty sweet. I got a pair for a family member to wear on airplanes and ended up using them myself on a day to day basis.

    They're essentially really good earplugs with good headphones inside them. I could be standing five feet away from someone listening to medium volume music while that person is yelling at me and not hear a thing.

    They're worth the money if you listen to your music on headphones a lot (more than an hour a day).

    The bad thing about the e2s is that they kind of look like hearing aids when you're wearing them, so there are several dozen people who think I'm deaf.

    pioneer se-dj5000s for my decks. probably wouldn't wear them in public, though i used to use a big pair of JVCs.

    i dont think there's anything wrong with wearing dj headphones in public unless you actually look like you're trying to look like a dj. dj cans usually have pretty good frequency response and good bass drivers, plus they're sturdy. those sennheisers look like theyre gonna fall the fuck apart any minute

    if i ever get another portable music player, i'd probably be leaning towards investing in a pair of good earbuds

    i just bought a pair of Akai ear plug headphones from coconuts.
    its what im looking for, for the winter.

    they have hooks to hook around the ear, and volume control.

    they fit under a beanie real nice, and are good for snowboading, since the hooks keep them staying in place and i can adjust the volume withouth having to take off my gloves or taking out my ipod.

    but for none winter days, i have sony MDR-V250
    they are a smaller version of the studio headphones.

    and i also have sondy MDR-500 for my turntable, but they flop around too much.

    I got these. Standard low price model. tdk mp100's. They have a weak point on the bridge. Bit of electrical tape fixes it, They give a pretty good response.
