    I sometimes use my AKG headphones for private practice but the have a short cord. What headphones have a long enough cord (6 feet or two metres plus) and give a realistic sound for bass?

    I had the same problem but there are plenty of extension cables available. I picked one up at Radio Shack for about $10.

    An extension cord will help with the cord length. If you are just looking for some really great and bass-happy headphones then I would recommend the Beyer DT770 PROs!

    Ive been happy with the Vox bass headphones. Short chord but it goes straight into the jack on your bass so it's not an issue.

    I was surprised at the sound i got out of them and they really pickup fret buzz and clicks well so ive found them good for improving my technique through certain areas to reduce my aggression for example.

    They have an input jack as well for an ipod or similar. Youd need a male to male jack for that.

    All round id say for practicing without an amp Ive had no complaints.
