    I'm searching for the perfect headphones, any suggestions...


    1) No in ear (they always hurt with extended listening/fall out all the time)

    2) I like the kind that clip/hook on the back of your ears, but I'll make exceptions for amazing sound.

    3) Cable length is important (has to be at least my height 5-6 feet)

    4) Durability is important

    5) Sound especially bass is important

    6) I will pay $$$ for the perfect phones.

    I use these right now...


    Which I bought because a previous model which looked like these but had better bass, and a nylon cased long cable (the cable on these doesn't even reach my pocket) was the best pair of phones I ever had.

    What are you going to use them for? Koss SportaPros are decent for sports. Good bass too - almost too much.

    I generally have 2 sets of headphones at any given time...

    1 pair of studio phones for playin bass and listening in my room (which also need replacing but that's another thread) and 1 pair for iPOD listening on the go and at work (I'm keeping the ones I have now with my laptop in case I need them)

    So I basically want them for hiking/the gym/sitting at my desk at work...

    right now my top pick is http://www.headphone.com/products/headphones/street-style/sennheiser-pmx-200.php closed ear for more bass/not bothering my co-workers.
