    I want to spend less than $30USD on headphones, but I'd like them to be over-the-ear earmuff style, and I'd like them to be comfortable to wear all day.

    I listen to music, books on tape, and podcasts on my iPod, so quality isn't insanely important. I would like it to sound nice, preferably delivering the same range my iPod can deliver.

    I am not an audiophile and can't afford to become one, but I would like to be smart when I buy my next set of headphones.

    If there is a crazy increase from $30USD to $40USD, I'm willing to go that high, but not higher. (I'm married and have student loans, which means tech budget is nearly non-existent!) :p

    Are you serious :confused: Did you not read the very first part of his first post...

    US$30.00 is about £15. A set of Sony MDR-V6's would set him back somewhere in the order of £80 (US$160... although you can possibly get 'em for less over there?).

    £15 - £80 most certainly is not a "little" extra :rolleyes:

    I also recommend Sennheiser, they are excellent headphones. I have a pair of their wireless headphones and couldn't be happier with them.

    awesome, the Sennheisers look to be a good kit for the price... especially considering they are only $5 USD more than my current sony "studio monitors" that are uncomfortable and low-ish quality. (Not bad, like the jvc earbuds I just returned to the store, but just not worth $20)

    thanks for the tips guys!

    For Low price good quality id go for the logitech playgear mod headphones chip as chips and far superior to ipod/sony freebes (in the box) and are good for a mid term set while saving up for Sennheiser !
    I don't know what model the units ive been looking at are but the Sennheiser i was looking at are £70>75 UK wow but as there SH ill pay that price.
    EDIT - heres the one im looking at
    Sennheiser-PXC250-Headphone
