My flatmates bought me these beauties for my bday. The fact that the cord is so long gives me some incentive to clean my room since I can circumnavigate it while listening to music and still be plugged in at the end of it. And I like that the cord isn't hard wired to the cans but rather, plugs into them... if it weren't for that, I would have botched them long ago after trampling on a tangled cord.

sony mdr-xd100's

I was given Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation noise reduction headphones for a holiday gift Direct Sound EX-29 Extreme Isolation Headphones – Noise reduction headphones «

I like the EX-29s because the ear pads are big enough to cover my ears without crushing them, unlike my previous despised Vic Firth sound reduction headphones.

These ones:

Used to have those and they randomly broke. Sound quality was insane but only lasted around 6 months.

I've just bought myself a pair of Koss Portapro's, I know I know, they're Koss but for all their shortcomings and general shoddyness, the Portapro's are excellent value for money.

That and they look cool.

I got 2 pairs of headphones I use mostly to listen to music while surfing the web.

I mostly use these.... Basic Triport Headphones

When I can remember to charge the battery.... I use Quiet Comfort 3s

For MP3 Players I use Bose Earbuds

My bad I just randomly grab images off the web and didnt resize.

Beyerdynamic DT-990 is just awesome.
I have a set of Philips SHP2000 (10 euro's) which are incredible value for money. I used to use these with my laptop and on the road, until I found a Sennheiser HD435 Manhattan that's a bit better. I've never been a fan of sennheiser. They sound pushy, hollow and bassy to me, but this one is very relaxed and rather neutral actually. Can't beat the DT-990 in any way though.

Nothing fancy, Sony MDR-V150's

These sony's actually don't sound all that bad :).
